SuperMedia Announces Fourth Quarter And Full Year 2011 Results

SuperMedia (NASDAQ:SPMD) today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year 2011.

“We believe we made good progress during 2011, as expense reduction initiatives drove adjusted EBITDA results of $602 million, reflecting improved EBITDA margin. Utilization of related cash flows and efforts to efficiently deleverage also allowed us to reduce our debt,” said president and CEO Peter McDonald. “Initiatives in these areas continue into 2012.

“In addition, we recognize the small and medium businesses in our markets need a trusted marketing advisor to navigate the confusing proliferation of local media choices across search, mobile, social and traditional media. We are very focused on being that trusted marketing partner as we continue to work to improve our revenue trends with our new sales approach.”

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”. Our non-GAAP basis measures are described and reconciled to the corresponding GAAP measures in the accompanying financial schedules. These results were adjusted for certain unique costs including an impairment charge, reorganization items, severance costs, restructuring costs and certain other non-recurring costs and the impact of fresh start accounting in 2010.
 

EBITDA is determined by adjusting net income for interest, taxes, gain on early extinguishment of debt, reorganization items, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA margin is calculated by dividing EBITDA by total operating revenue. Management believes that EBITDA and EBITDA margin are useful to investors and other users of our financial information in evaluating our operating performance. EBITDA and EBITDA margin are used internally to evaluate current operating expense efficiency and operating profitability by excluding interest, taxes, gain on early extinguishment of debt, reorganization, depreciation and amortization items. In addition, EBITDA is used internally for incentive compensation purposes.
 

¹Free cash flow is cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures (including capitalized software).

Basis of Presentation and Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Upon emergence from bankruptcy on December 31, 2009, SuperMedia adopted fresh start accounting in accordance with GAAP. Accordingly, SuperMedia’s 2010 financial results were significantly affected. On 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 2010 consolidated statement of operations. Included in the 2011 and 2010 financial statements are adjustments made in order to provide investors with financial results more closely aligned to SuperMedia’s internal measurement. Pro forma adjustments are transactions related to the fresh start accounting included in the 2010 financial statements. Adjustments and pro forma adjustments are utilized to assist in the comparability of the periods presented.

For the readers’ convenience, the financial information accompanying this release provides a reconciliation of GAAP to non-GAAP and adjusted pro forma non-GAAP results. SuperMedia believes that the use of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful information to investors to gain an overall understanding of its current financial performance. Specifically, SuperMedia believes the non-GAAP results provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain expenses, gains and losses that SuperMedia believes are not indicative of its core operating results. In addition, non-GAAP financial measures are used by management for budgeting and forecasting as well as subsequently measuring SuperMedia’s performance and SuperMedia believes that it is providing investors with financial measures that most closely align to its internal measurement processes.

Forward-Looking Statements

  • failure to comply with the financial covenants and other restrictive covenants in our credit agreement;
  • limited access to capital markets and increased borrowing costs resulting from our leveraged capital structure and debt ratings;
  • changes in the availability and cost of paper and other raw materials used to print our directories;
  • 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

(2) Operating income (loss) margin is calculated by dividing operating income (loss) by operating revenue.

(4) Reorganization items represent charges that are directly associated with the process of reorganizing the business under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code.
 
(5) As a result of the passage of the Health Care Reform Act in March of 2010, the future benefit of certain deferred tax assets was eliminated, resulting in a charge in the year ended December 31, 2010.
 
(6) Gain on early extinguishment of debt represents the gain associated with the purchase of a portion of the Company's debt below par value.
 
(7) Fresh start accounting items include adjustments for revenue and expense items that would have been otherwise amortized into the Company's statement of operations but were written off at December 31, 2009 according to the rules of fresh start accounting.
 
(8) Results include a $40 million general and administrative expense reduction related to the favorable non-recurring, non-cash resolution of state operating tax claims.

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 year ended December 31, 2011 include negative adjustments of $11 million or 0.6 percent related to the financial distress and operational wind down of a single certified marketing representative in our third-party national sales channel. Excluding this impact, advertising sales for the year ended December 31, 2011 would have reflected a decline of 16.2 percent. As of June 2011, these accounts have been transitioned to other certified marketing representative firms.
