Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. Reports Results For 2014 First Quarter

Stocks in this article: CCO

Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CCO) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014.

“We made solid progress at our Outdoor businesses during the quarter, as we increasingly capitalized on the growing opportunity in international emerging markets while refocusing our Americas organization to meet the shifting needs of our advertising partners,” said Bob Pittman, Executive Chairman of Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. “CEO William Eccleshare and his team are also driving our technological leadership, such as launching ‘Connect’ – a groundbreaking mobile advertising platform that will enable 175 million consumers monthly around the world to access information, shopping, entertainment and community with just their smartphones. We look forward to continuing to transform the out-of-home industry to engage more global consumers more deeply than ever with the industry’s most advanced innovations and smartest initiatives.”

“International Outdoor is showing continued strength with a 24% increase in OIBDAN compared to the prior year quarter,” said Chief Executive Officer William Eccleshare. “Strong performances in emerging markets, such as China and Latin America, have been augmented by the economic recovery in Europe. Our UK business is executing ahead of the market, and we see clear signs of an improved performance in the Eurozone, aided by our Sales Force Effectiveness and Revenue Management programs.”

“Americas Outdoor faced difficult conditions in the quarter,” Eccleshare added. “We continued to see growth in our strong local and regional business. But our national operations faced challenges, such as the continued absence of revenue from the 77 digital boards in Los Angeles and other divested assets. In addition, a number of our major advertisers shifted their out-of-home spending to support other initiatives, including the Winter Olympics and World Cup. We are taking steps to address these setbacks with our new national sales leadership, our Shopper Marketing program and the continued expansion of our digital footprint.”
