SuperMedia Announces Second Quarter 2011 Results

SuperMedia (NASDAQ:SPMD) today announced its financial results for second quarter 2011.

Results include:
  • Second quarter 2011 advertising sales declined 16.7 percent1, compared to a second quarter 2010 decline of 16.4 percent;
  • Adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) were $152 million for second quarter 2011, a 7.9 percent decline compared to second quarter 2010 adjusted pro forma EBITDA of $165 million which included an expense reduction of $16 million related to the favorable, non-recurring, non-cash resolution of state operating tax claims; and
  • Continued cost management and expense reductions partially mitigated revenue declines, resulting in an improved adjusted EBITDA margin of 36.1 percent compared to an adjusted pro forma EBITDA margin of 32.2 percent in the second quarter of 2010.

“During the second quarter we continued addressing costs, efficiencies and processes with a rigorous eye, which is reflected in our ability to maintain the margin improvement we saw in the first quarter,” said SuperMedia CEO Peter McDonald.

“We believe we are headed in the right direction relative to our cost structure. We are also focused on improving ad sales which remain disappointing, reflecting, in part, the current challenges facing local businesses.”

Financial Summary

SuperMedia reports financial results in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and on a non-GAAP basis, referred to as “adjusted and adjusted pro forma”. The non-GAAP basis measures are described and reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measures in the accompanying financial schedules. These results were adjusted for the impact of fresh start accounting and certain unique costs including reorganization items, severance costs, restructuring costs and certain other non-recurring costs.

Reported GAAP operating revenue for Q2 2011 was $421 million versus $247 million in Q2 2010. When comparing Q2 2011 operating revenue to adjusted pro forma operating revenue of $512 million for Q2 2010, revenue declined 17.8 percent.

Reported GAAP year-to-date operating revenue for 2011 was $859 million.

Reported Q2 2011 EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, was $150 million compared to a loss of $14 million reported in Q2 2010. On an adjusted basis, Q2 2011 EBITDA was $152 million with an EBITDA margin of 36.1 percent, compared to adjusted pro forma Q2 2010 EBITDA of $165 million, with an EBITDA margin of 32.2 percent, which included an expense reduction of $16 million related to the favorable, non-recurring, non-cash resolution of state operating tax claims.

Reported year-to-date 2011 EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, was $297 million compared to a loss of $110 million for the same period in 2010. On an adjusted basis, year-to-date 2011 EBITDA was $306 million with an EBITDA margin of 35.6 percent, compared to year-to-date adjusted pro forma 2010 EBITDA of $328 million with an EBITDA margin of 31.4 percent which included an expense reduction of $16 million related to the favorable, non-recurring, non-cash resolution of state operating tax claims.

Advertising sales in Q2 2011 declined 16.7 percent 2, compared to a decline of 16.4 percent reported for the same period in 2010. Reported year-to-date 2011 advertising sales declined 17.5 percent, compared to a decline of 18.3 percent reported for the same period in 2010.

Year-to-date free cash flow, a non-GAAP measure, was $42 million for Q2 2011, representing cash provided by operating activities of $49 million, less capital expenditures (including capitalized software) of $7 million.

SuperMedia made debt principal payments of $36 million in the second quarter of 2011, in accordance with the mandatory cash sweep provisions of the Company’s loan agreement. Cash on hand as of June 30, 2011 was $180 million.

Basis of Presentation and Non-GAAP Measures

Upon emergence from bankruptcy on December 31, 2009, SuperMedia adopted fresh start accounting in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Accordingly, SuperMedia’s 2010 financial results were significantly affected. At December 31, 2009, the balances in deferred revenue and deferred directory costs were adjusted to their fair value of zero, which had a significant non-cash impact on our 2010 consolidated statement of operations. For the readers' convenience, the financial information accompanying this release provides a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP results.

Forward-Looking Statements

This release contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. You should not place undue reliance on these statements.

Forward-looking statements address matters that involve risks and uncertainties. Accordingly, there are or will be important factors that could cause our actual results to differ materially from those indicated in these statements. We believe that these factors include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • our inability to provide assurance for the long-term continued viability of our business;
  • reduced advertising spending and contract cancellations by our clients, which causes reduced revenue;
  • declining use of print yellow pages directories by consumers;
  • competition from other yellow pages directory publishers and other traditional and new media, and our ability to anticipate or respond to changes in technology and user preferences;
  • changes in our operating performance;
  • our post-restructuring financial condition, financing requirements and cash flow;
  • limitations on our operating and strategic flexibility and the ability to operate our business, finance our capital needs or expand business strategies under the terms of our debt agreements;
  • failure to comply with the financial covenants and other restrictive covenants in our debt agreements;
  • limited access to capital markets and increased borrowing costs resulting from our leveraged capital structure and debt ratings;
  • our ability to resolve any remaining bankruptcy claims;
  • changes in the availability and cost of paper and other raw materials used to print our directories and our reliance on third-party providers for printing, publishing and distribution services;
  • credit risk associated with our reliance on small- and medium-sized businesses as clients;
  • our ability to attract and retain qualified key personnel;
  • our ability to maintain good relations with our unionized employees;
  • changes in labor, business, political and economic conditions;
  • changes in governmental regulations and policies and actions of federal, state and local municipalities; and
  • the outcome of pending or future litigation and other claims.

The foregoing factors should not be construed as exhaustive and should be read together with the other cautionary statements included in this and other reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), including the information in “Item 1A. Risk Factors” in Part I of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010 and in all subsequent filings with the SEC.

1 Advertising sales for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 include negative adjustments of $2 million, or 0.4 percent, and $11 million, or 1.1 percent, respectively, related to the financial distress and operational wind down of a single certified marketing representative firm in our third-party national sales channel. Excluding this impact, advertising sales for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 would have reflected a decline of 16.3 percent and 16.4 percent, respectively. As of June 2011, responsibility for these accounts has been transitioned to other certified marketing representative firms.

Notes:
 
(1) Net advertising sales is an operating measure used by the Company to compare advertising sales for current advertising periods to corresponding sales for previous periods. It is important to distinguish net advertising sales from operating revenue, which on our financial statements is recognized under the deferral and amortization method.
 

(2) Advertising sales for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 include negative adjustments of $2 million, or 0.4 percent, and $11 million, or 1.1 percent, respectively, related to the financial distress and operational wind down of a single certified marketing representative firm in our third-party national sales channel. Excluding this impact, advertising sales for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 would have reflected a decline of 16.3 percent and 16.4 percent, respectively. As of June 2011, responsibility for these accounts has been transitioned to other certified marketing representative firms.
