Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. Reports Results For 2013 Second Quarter

Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CCO) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

“We delivered solid growth this quarter, with strong performance in the Americas and International’s results clearly reflecting our investments in emerging markets,” said Bob Pittman, Executive Chairman of Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. “CEO William Eccleshare and his team are continuing to benefit from refocusing our U.S. sales force and our International resources. At the same time, we are building out our digital assets around the world to make it even easier for advertisers to create compelling campaigns that capitalize fully on the effectiveness of these new technologies and our out-of-home networks.”

“We are pursuing growth opportunities globally, working with our advertising partners to maximize the impact of their campaigns by helping them take the utmost advantage of the interactivity and immediacy of our growing base of digital displays,” said Chief Executive Officer William Eccleshare. “Financially, our U.S. business performed well in the second quarter, as did our emerging markets, and we’re making progress in Europe, where the economic environment is still challenging. We continue to drive top line results across our asset portfolio, and our close focus on expenses demonstrated the attractive operating leverage in our business this quarter.”

Second Quarter 2013 Results

Total revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2013 increased 2% over the same period in 2012, adjusting for the effects of foreign exchange movements 1, as well as a $9 million impact from the divestiture of businesses during the third quarter of 2012. On a reported basis, revenues of $767 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 were up 1% from the same period in 2012.
  • Americas revenues rose $14 million, or 4%, on a reported basis and 5% adjusted for movements in foreign exchange rates, driven by higher occupancy and capacity on digital bulletins, higher occupancy and rate on traditional bulletins, strong growth in posters, and increased revenue at airports.
  • International revenues declined $1 million, or less than 1%, after adjusting for a $9 million revenue reduction due to the divestiture of businesses during the third quarter of 2012 and a $2 million increase from movements in foreign exchange rates. Strong revenue growth in emerging markets was offset by continued pressures in certain developed markets, where economic conditions remain challenging. On a reported basis, revenues decreased $9 million, or 2%, compared to the same period of 2012.

The Company’s OIBDAN 1 increased 3% to $203 million in the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $196 million in the same period of 2012. Excluding minimal effects of movements in foreign exchange rates and a $2 million reduction due to the divestiture of businesses during the third quarter of 2012, OIBDAN rose 4% to $203 million. OIBDAN in the second quarter of 2012 reflected a favorable court ruling of $8 million and also included $8 million of operating and corporate expenses related to the Company’s strategic revenue and cost initiatives to attract additional advertising dollars to the business and improve operating efficiencies. OIBDAN for the three months ended June 30, 2012 included $10 million in expenses related to strategic revenue and cost initiatives, as well as $5 million in legal and other costs primarily related to Brazil.

The Company’s net income was $9 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to a net loss of $8 million in 2012 due primarily to higher operating income and lower interest expense due to debt refinancing, offset by higher income tax expense.

Key Highlights

The Company’s recent key highlights include:
  • Launching consumer networks in the U.S., comprised of targeted portfolios of displays delivering pre-selected demographic groups supported by Traffic Audit Bureau (TAB) ratings that plug into existing advertiser models – an innovation that offers advertisers and agencies a simpler and easier buying process with enhanced audience metrics and greater exposure to the targeted audience.
  • Announcing that Clear Channel Airports won a five-year contract with extension options to provide indoor digital media programs at Chicago’s O’Hare and Midway International airports, where Clear Channel has operated since 2002. The program will include approximately 400 digital displays and reach 66 million passengers annually. Clear Channel Airports was also selected by San Francisco International Airport to provide digital media and sponsorship solutions throughout its terminals, including 30 digital installations that will reach more than 10 million passengers annually.
  • As part of Clear Channel Outdoor’s sponsorship of the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, creating the world’s first hand-painted micrography billboard made entirely of tweets which were sent to #Canvas or @CCOutdoor, delivering a reach of more than 10 million impressions over four days.
  • Highlighting the immediacy and flexibility of the Americas digital out-of-home network, beginning on July 4, 2013, 1,000 digital billboards across the U.S. displayed the lyrics of “The Star Spangled Banner” linked to the #united4th campaign, which was also promoted on more than 200 Clear Channel radio stations and on iHeartRadio.
  • Creating a mobile-controlled, personalized, geo-specific campaign across five European countries to promote the theatrical release of Universal Pictures’ Despicable Me 2. Across a network of 259 digital screens, consumers could control and personalize the on-screen creative via their mobile phones, and receive a text link back to share their personalized Minion film socially. The interactive campaign was supported by additional static and digital formats.
  • Installing nine new digital billboards for a total of 1,055 across 37 U.S. markets.

3 During 2012, the Company disposed of international businesses. For the three months ended June 30, 2012, these businesses contributed $9 million in revenues, $8 million in operating expenses, and $2 million in OIBDAN.

Americas

Americas revenues rose $14 million, or 4%, on a reported basis and 5% adjusted for movements in foreign exchange rates, driven by higher occupancy and capacity on digital displays, higher occupancy and rate on traditional bulletins, strong growth in posters, and growth in airports. Partially offsetting this growth were declines in our specialty businesses.

Operating expenses increased $10 million, or 6%, to $197 million for second quarter 2013, on a reported basis and adjusted for the effects of movements in foreign exchange rates. Operating expenses in the second quarter of 2012 reflected a favorable court ruling of $8 million. Expenses in the second quarter of 2013 also included a $2 million decrease in expenses related to investments in strategic revenue and cost savings programs.

OIBDAN, on a reported basis and excluding foreign exchange impacts, grew $4 million, or 3%, to $138 million during the second quarter of 2013 compared to the same period in 2012. Second quarter 2013 OIBDAN reflected approximately $1 million of expenses related to certain investments in strategic revenue and cost savings programs compared to $3 million in the second quarter of 2012.

International

International revenues declined $1 million, or less than 1%, after adjusting for a $9 million revenue reduction due to the divestiture of businesses during the third quarter of 2012 and a $2 million increase from movements in foreign exchange rates. Strong revenue growth in emerging markets was offset by continued pressures in certain developed markets, where economic conditions remain challenging. On a reported basis, revenues decreased $9 million, or 2%, compared to the same period of 2012.

Operating expenses fell $9 million in the second quarter of 2013, adjusting for $8 million of expenses due to the divestiture of businesses during the third quarter of 2012, and a $2 million increase from movements in foreign exchange rates. Operating expenses declined due to cost savings from strategic investments, offset by higher costs in emerging markets and from new contracts in markets with increased revenue. Operating expenses in the second quarter of 2013 included a decrease of approximately $4 million in investments in strategic revenue and cost savings programs, and a decrease of $5 million in legal and other costs in Brazil.

International OIBDAN in the second quarter of 2013 increased $7 million, or 8%, to $96 million, adjusting for a $2 million OIBDAN reduction due to the divestiture of businesses during the third quarter of 2012 and adjusting for minimal movements in foreign exchange rates. OIBDAN in the second quarter of 2013 included $2 million of costs incurred for investments in strategic revenue and cost savings programs compared to $6 million in the second quarter of 2012. On a reported basis, OIBDAN rose $6 million, or 7%, to $96 million.

Liquidity and Financial Position

For the six months ended June 30, 2013, cash flow provided by operating activities was $104 million, cash flow used for investing activities totaled $72 million, cash flow used for financing activities was $192 million, and the effect of exchange rate changes on cash was $4 million, for a net decrease in cash of $163 million.

Capital expenditures for the six months ended June 30, 2013 totaled approximately $80 million compared to $131 million for the same period in 2012.

Consolidated leverage ratio, defined as total debt divided by EBITDA (as defined by the Clear Channel Worldwide Holdings (“CCWH”) Senior Notes indentures) for the preceding four quarters was 6.2:1 at June 30, 2013, and senior leverage ratio, defined as senior debt divided by EBITDA (as defined by the CCWH Senior Notes indentures) for the preceding four quarters was 3.5:1 at June 30, 2013. As required by the definition of EBITDA in the CCWH Senior Notes indentures, our EBITDA for the preceding four quarters of $796 million is calculated as operating income (loss) before depreciation, amortization, impairment charges and other operating income (expense), net, plus share-based compensation, and is further adjusted for the following: (i) costs incurred in connection with severance, the closure and/or consolidation of facilities, retention charges, consulting fees and other permitted activities; (ii) extraordinary, non-recurring or unusual gains or losses or expenses; (iii) non-cash charges; and (iv) various other items.

The following table reflects a reconciliation of EBITDA (as defined by the CCWH Senior Notes indentures) to operating income and net cash provided by operating activities for the four quarters ended June 30, 2013:

Supplemental Disclosure Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Information

The following tables set forth the Company’s OIBDAN for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012. The Company defines OIBDAN as consolidated net income (loss) adjusted to exclude non-cash compensation expenses and the following line items presented in its Statement of Operations: Income tax benefit (expense); Other income (expense) - net; Equity in earnings (loss) of nonconsolidated affiliates; Gain (loss) on marketable securities; Interest expense; Other operating income (expense) – net; D&A and Impairment charges.

The Company uses OIBDAN, among other things, to evaluate the Company's operating performance. This measure is among the primary measures used by management for the planning and forecasting of future periods, as well as for measuring performance for compensation of executives and other members of management. We believe this measure is an important indicator of the Company's operational strength and performance of its business because it provides a link between profitability and net income. It is also a primary measure used by management in evaluating companies as potential acquisition targets.

The Company believes the presentation of this measure is relevant and useful for investors because it allows investors to view performance in a manner similar to the method used by the Company's management. The Company believes it helps improve investors’ ability to understand the Company's operating performance and makes it easier to compare the Company's results with other companies that have different capital structures, stock option structures or tax rates. In addition, the Company believes this measure is also among the primary measures used externally by the Company's investors, analysts and peers in its industry for purposes of valuation and comparing the operating performance of the Company to other companies in its industry.

Since OIBDAN is not a measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, it should not be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for, net income as an indicator of operating performance and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. OIBDAN is not necessarily a measure of the Company's ability to fund its cash needs. As it excludes certain financial information compared with operating income and net income (loss), the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures, users of this financial information should consider the types of events and transactions which are excluded. In addition, because a significant portion of the Company’s advertising operations are conducted in foreign markets, principally the Euro area, the U.K. and China, management reviews the operating results from its foreign operations on a constant dollar basis. A constant dollar basis (in which a foreign currency adjustment is made to show the 2013 actual foreign revenues, expenses and OIBDAN at average 2012 foreign exchange rates) allows for comparison of operations independent of foreign exchange rate movements.

As required by the SEC, the Company provides reconciliations below to the most directly comparable amounts reported under GAAP, including (i) OIBDAN for each segment to consolidated operating income (loss); (ii) Revenues excluding foreign exchange effects to revenues; (iii) Expenses excluding foreign exchange effects to expenses; (iv) OIBDAN excluding foreign exchange effects to OIBDAN; (v) Corporate expenses excluding non-cash compensation expenses to Corporate expenses; and (vi) OIBDAN to net income (loss).
