Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. Reports Results For 2016 Third Quarter

Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. (NYSE:CCO) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.

"In this quarter, our Americas and International outdoor businesses continued to invest in building programmatic buying platforms and developing new research analytics tools to help ensure our place with our advertisers in an increasingly digital world," said Bob Pittman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. "To stay as competitive as possible, we believe it's critical to do business with advertising and marketing partners in the same way that the digital advertising industry does today. And, we continue to invest in our digital out-of-home network to expand our ability to offer innovative solutions to our marketing partners."

"International outdoor delivered growth in both revenues and operating income," said Rich Bressler, Chief Financial Officer. "Americas outdoor revenue and operating income declined due to the sale of nine non-strategic markets. Excluding the sale, Americas outdoor revenues increased."

Third Quarter 2016 Results

Consolidated

Consolidated revenue decreased $23.2 million, or 3.3%, during the third quarter of 2016 as compared to the third quarter of 2015. Consolidated revenue increased $15.5 million, or 2.3%, after adjusting for a $5.9 million impact from movements in foreign exchange rates and the $32.8 million impact of the non-strategic markets sold in 2016.

Consolidated direct operating and SG&A expenses decreased $13.0 million, or 2.6%, during the third quarter of 2016 as compared to the third quarter of 2015. Consolidated direct operating and SG&A expenses increased $12.3 million, or 2.5%, in the third quarter, after adjusting for a $5.6 million impact of movements in foreign exchange rates and the $19.7 million impact of the non-strategic markets sold in 2016.

Consolidated operating income increased 14.7% to $60.8 million, during the third quarter of 2016 as compared to the third quarter of 2015, primarily due to impairment charges of $21.6 million recognized in the third quarter of 2015, compared to impairment charges of $7.3 million recognized in the third quarter of 2016.

The Company's OIBDAN decreased 5.8% to $155.4 million, during the third quarter of 2016 as compared to the third quarter of 2015. The Company's OIBDAN increased 1.6% in the third quarter 2016 compared to the same period of 2015, after adjusting for movements in foreign exchange rates and the impact of the sale of the non-strategic markets.

Included in the 2016 third quarter operating income and OIBDAN were $2.4 million of direct operating and SG&A expenses and $0.9 million of corporate expenses associated with the Company's strategic revenue and efficiency initiatives, a decrease of $5.5 million compared to such expenses in the prior year.

Americas

Americas outdoor revenues decreased $24.3 million, or 7.0%, during the third quarter of 2016 as compared to the third quarter of 2015. Revenues increased $3.5 million, or 1.1%, after adjusting for a $0.1 million impact from movements in foreign exchange rates and a $27.9 million impact from the non-strategic markets sold in the first quarter of 2016. These markets generated revenues of $27.9 million in the third quarter of 2015. The decrease resulting from these sales was partially offset by increased revenues from digital billboards as a result of new deployments and higher occupancy on existing digital billboards, new airport contracts and higher revenues in Latin America, resulting primarily from the Olympics in Brazil.

Direct operating and SG&A expenses decreased $11.1 million, or 5.3%, during the third quarter of 2016 as compared to the third quarter of 2015. Direct operating and SG&A expenses increased $3.1 million, or 1.6%, during the third quarter 2016, after adjusting for a $0.3 million impact from movements in foreign exchange rates and the $14.5 million impact from the sale of non-strategic markets during the first quarter of 2016, due primarily to higher variable operating expenses related to higher revenues.

Operating income decreased 11.7% to $78.3 million. OIBDAN was down $13.2 million, or 9.5%, during the third quarter of 2016 as compared to the third quarter of 2015, resulting primarily from the sale of the non-strategic markets in the first quarter of 2016. OIBDAN increased 0.3% during the third quarter 2016, after adjusting for a $0.2 million impact from movements in foreign exchange rates and the $13.4 million impact from the sale of non-strategic markets.

International

International outdoor revenues increased $1.2 million, or 0.3%, during the third quarter of 2016 as compared to the third quarter of 2015. Revenues increased $12.1 million, or 3.5%, after adjusting for a $6.0 million impact from movements in foreign exchange rates and the $4.9 million impact from the sale of our business in Turkey in the second quarter of 2016. Higher revenue from new digital assets and new contracts in Australia, Italy, Spain and Sweden, was partially offset by lower revenue in the United Kingdom, due to the London bus shelter contract not being renewed.

Direct operating and SG&A expenses decreased $1.9 million, or 0.6%, during the third quarter of 2016 as compared to the third quarter of 2015. Direct operating and SG&A expenses increased $9.2 million or 3.2%, during the third quarter 2016, after adjusting for a $5.9 million impact from movements in foreign exchange rates and the $5.2 million impact from the sale of our business in Turkey in the second quarter of 2016. Direct operating and SG&A expenses increased primarily due to higher site lease, production and compensation expenses related to higher revenues, partially offset by lower site lease expense due to lower revenue in the United Kingdom.

Operating income increased 70.6% to $18.3 million, primarily as a result of lower depreciation and amortization expense. OIBDAN increased $3.0 million, or 5.8%, during the third quarter of 2016 as compared to the third quarter of 2015. OIBDAN increased $2.9 million, or 5.6%, during the third quarter 2016, after adjusting for a $0.2 million impact from movements in foreign exchange rates and the $0.3 million impact from the sale of our business in Turkey in the second quarter of 2016. Operating income and OIBDAN in the third quarter of 2016 each include $2.1 million in expenses related to investments in strategic revenue and efficiency initiatives compared to $7.2 million in the 2015 period.

Clear Channel International B.V. ("CCIBV")

CCIBV's consolidated revenues decreased $0.1 million to $284.6 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to the same period in 2015. This decrease includes a $6.0 million impact from movements in foreign exchange rates.

CCIBV's operating loss was $13.5 million in the third quarter of 2016 compared to operating loss of $12.0 million in the same period in 2015. This increase includes a $1.9 million impact from movements in foreign exchange rates.

Supplemental Disclosure Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Information

The following tables set forth the Company's OIBDAN for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2016 and 2015. The Company defines OIBDAN as consolidated operating income adjusted to exclude non-cash compensation expenses, included within corporate expenses, as well as the following line items presented in its Statement of Operations: Depreciation and amortization; Impairment charges; and Other operating income, net.

In the second quarter of 2016, the Company revised its presentation of OIBDAN to eliminate the adjustment for amortization of deferred system implementation costs. The Company incurred these costs for the first time during 2015 and excluded them from its calculation of OIBDAN in 2015 to enhance comparability of the Company's underlying financial performance during 2015 as compared to 2014. As amortization of deferred system implementation costs are now reflected in both the 2015 and 2016 periods, and are recurring expenses, the Company no longer believes excluding these costs enhances the comparability of the Company's underlying financial performance. The Company does not believe this change will have a significant impact on its OIBDAN presentation.

The Company uses OIBDAN, among other measures, 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 operational performance and operating 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 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, operating 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, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, users of this financial information should consider the types of events and transactions which are excluded.

The other non-GAAP financial measures presented in the tables below are: (i) revenues, direct operating and SG&A expenses and OIBDAN, each excluding the effects of foreign exchange rates; (ii) revenues, direct operating and SG&A expenses and OIBDAN, each excluding the effects of foreign exchange rates and the results from non-strategic markets sold and (iii) corporate expenses, excluding non-cash compensation expenses.

The Company presents revenues, direct operating and SG&A expenses and OIBDAN, each excluding the effects of foreign exchange rates, because management believes that viewing certain financial results without the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency rates facilitates period to period comparisons of business performance and provides useful information to investors. A significant portion of the Company's advertising operations are conducted in foreign markets, principally Europe, the U.K. and China, and management reviews the results from its foreign operations on a constant dollar basis. Revenues, direct operating and SG&A expenses and OIBDAN, each excluding the effects of foreign exchange rates, are calculated by converting the current period's amounts in local currency to U.S. dollars using average foreign exchange rates for the prior period.

In the first quarter of 2016, the Company sold nine non-strategic Americas markets and in the second quarter of 2016, the Company sold its business in Turkey. The Company presents revenues, direct operating and SG&A expenses and OIBDAN, each excluding the effects of foreign exchange rates and the results from non-strategic markets sold, for the consolidated Company and the Company's segments, in order to facilitate investors' understanding of operational trends without the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency rates and without the results from the markets that were sold, as these results will not be included in the Company's results in current and future periods.

Corporate expenses excluding the effects of non-cash compensation expenses is presented as OIBDAN excludes non-cash compensation expenses.

Since these non-GAAP financial measures are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, they should not be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures as an indicator of operating performance.

As required by the SEC, the Company provides reconciliations below to the most directly comparable amounts reported under GAAP, including (i) OIBDAN excluding effects of foreign exchange rates and OIBDAN for each segment to consolidated and segment operating income (loss); (ii) Revenues excluding the effects of foreign exchange rates to revenues; (iii) Direct operating and SG&A expenses excluding the effects of foreign exchange rates to direct operating and SG&A expenses; (iv) Corporate expenses excluding non-cash compensation expenses and effects of foreign exchange rates to Corporate expenses; (v) Consolidated and segment revenues excluding the effects of foreign exchange rates and results from non-strategic markets sold to Consolidated and segment revenues; (vi) Consolidated and segment direct operating and SG&A expenses excluding the effects of foreign exchange rates and results from non-strategic markets sold to Consolidated and segment direct operating and SG&A expenses; (vii) Consolidated and segment OIBDAN excluding the effects of foreign exchange rates and results from non-strategic markets sold to Consolidated and segment Operating income.
