CLEAR CHANNEL OUTDOOR HOLDINGS, INC. REPORTS RESULTS FOR THE SECOND QUARTER OF 2022


SAN ANTONIO, Aug. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CCO) (the "Company") today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2022.

"We delivered strong results during the second quarter, exceeding our consolidated revenue guidance, as advertising demand remained robust across our markets in the Americas and Europe," said Scott Wells, Chief Executive Officer of Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. "Our strong performance was once again led by our digital assets, which are becoming a greater contributor to our results as we advance as a visual media powerhouse targeting consumers on the move.

"The out-of-home industry is forecasted to grow well ahead of other traditional media for the full year and we're well positioned to benefit given our progress in innovating and modernizing our asset base and operating infrastructure. We're making our solutions more data driven, easier to buy and faster to launch, which is expanding the range of advertisers we can pursue.

"With our top-line momentum continuing into the current quarter, we're keeping a close watch on developments impacting the global economy. As we have demonstrated during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have the levers to manage our costs should that need arise, while ensuring we have ample liquidity on our balance sheet.

"As we execute our core investment plan, we continue to evaluate strategic alternatives for our European business. Given the current state of European capital markets, our Board of Directors has authorized the Company to focus the strategic review on the potential disposal of certain of our lower-margin or lower-priority European assets, in line with our goal to optimize our portfolio in the best interests of our shareholders."

Clear Channel International B.V.

Our Europe segment consists of the businesses operated by Clear Channel International B.V. ("CCIBV") and its consolidated subsidiaries. Accordingly, the revenue for our Europe segment is the same as the revenue for CCIBV. Europe Segment Adjusted EBITDA, the segment profitability metric reported in our financial statements, does not include an allocation of CCIBV's corporate expenses that are deducted from CCIBV's operating income (loss) and Adjusted EBITDA.

As discussed above, Europe and CCIBV revenue increased $33.2 million during the second quarter of 2022 compared to the same period of 2021 to $280.3 million. After adjusting for a $35.5 million impact from movements in FX, Europe and CCIBV revenue increased $68.7 million.

CCIBV operating income was $15.6 million in the second quarter of 2022 compared to operating loss of $40.0 million in the same period in 2021.

For a discussion of revenue and direct operating and SG&A expenses driving CCIBV's Adjusted EBITDA, see the discussion of our Europe Segment Adjusted EBITDA in this earnings release.

Debt:

During the six months ended June 30, 2022, we made principal payments on our Term Loan Facility totaling $10.0 million and expect to make additional principal payments of $10.0 million during the remainder of the year. Our next material debt maturity is in 2025 when the $375.0 million aggregate principal amount of CCIBV 6.625% Senior Secured Notes is due. However, at our option, we may redeem or repay a portion of our outstanding debt prior to maturity in accordance with the terms of our debt agreements.

We anticipate having approximately $179.9 million of cash interest payment obligations during the remainder of 2022 and $372.2 million of cash interest payment obligations in 2023, assuming current interest rates remain and that we do not refinance or incur additional debt.

Other debt includes finance leases and a state-guaranteed loan of ?30.0 million, or $31.4 million at current exchange rates. In April 2022, as permitted under the terms of the loan agreement, the Company elected to extend the loan's maturity date to June 29, 2027, with quarterly principal repayments of ?1.875 million due beginning in September 2023. The annual interest rate on such loan for periods after June 2022 is 0.7% (with no interest due prior thereto), and the annual cost of the state guarantee will be 1.0% of the outstanding loan amount through June 29, 2024 and 2.0% of the outstanding loan amount for the remainder of the loan term.

Update Regarding Review of Strategic Alternatives for European Business:

As previously disclosed in December 2021, our Board of Directors authorized a review of strategic alternatives for our European business, including a possible sale. Since that time, the Company has diligently and thoroughly conducted this strategic review and continues to do so, intending to optimize our portfolio in the best interests of our shareholders. Given the current state of European capital markets, and the resulting environment to transact for the whole of our European business, our Board of Directors has authorized the Company to focus the strategic review on the potential disposal of certain of our lower-margin European assets (and/or other European assets of lower priority to our European business on the whole), while retaining, for now, our higher-margin European assets, which are performing well. Accordingly, the Company is currently focused on strategic dialogues with potential acquirers of such lower-margin and/or lower-priority European assets.

As before, there can be no assurance that the strategic review process will result in any transaction(s) or particular outcome(s). The Company has not set a timetable for completion of the review, may suspend the process at any time and does not intend to make further announcements regarding the process unless and until our Board of Directors approves a course of action for which further disclosure is appropriate.

Supplemental Disclosure Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Information and Segment Adjusted EBITDA:

A significant portion of the Company's advertising operations is conducted in foreign markets, principally Europe, and Company management reviews the results from its foreign operations on a constant dollar basis. The Company presents the non-GAAP financial measures of revenue excluding movements in FX, direct operating and SG&A expenses excluding movements in FX, corporate expenses excluding movements in FX and Adjusted EBITDA (as defined below) excluding movements in FX because Company 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. These non-GAAP financial measures, which exclude 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 comparable prior period.

The Company presents Adjusted EBITDA because the Company believes Adjusted EBITDA helps investors better understand the Company's operating performance as compared to other out-of-home advertisers, and this metric is widely used in practice. The Company defines "Adjusted EBITDA" as consolidated net income (loss), plus: income tax expense (benefit); all non-operating expenses (income), including other expense (income), net, loss on extinguishment of debt, and interest expense, net; other operating expense (income), net; impairment charges; depreciation and amortization; non-cash compensation expenses included within corporate expenses; and restructuring and other costs included within operating expenses. Restructuring and other costs include costs associated with cost savings initiatives such as severance, consulting and termination costs and other special costs. The Company uses Adjusted EBITDA as one of the primary measures for the planning and forecasting of future periods, as well as for measuring performance for compensation of Company executives and other members of Company management. The Company believes Adjusted EBITDA is useful for investors because it allows investors to view performance in a manner similar to the method used by Company management and helps improve investors' ability to understand the Company's operating performance, making it easier to compare the Company's results with other companies that have different capital structures or tax rates. In addition, the Company believes Adjusted EBITDA is 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.

As part of the calculation of Adjusted EBITDA, the Company also presents the non-GAAP financial measure of "Adjusted Corporate expenses," which the Company defines as corporate expenses excluding restructuring and other costs and non-cash compensation expense.

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 or, in the case of Adjusted EBITDA, the Company's ability to fund its cash needs. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly-titled measures employed by other companies. Users of this non-GAAP financial information should consider the types of events and transactions that are excluded.

As required by SEC rules, the Company provides reconciliations below to the most directly comparable measures reported under GAAP, including (i) consolidated net loss to Adjusted EBITDA and (ii) corporate expenses to Adjusted Corporate expenses.

Segment Adjusted EBITDA

The Company has two reportable segments, which it believes best reflect how the Company is currently managed: Americas and Europe. The Company's remaining operating segment, Latin America, does not meet the quantitative threshold to qualify as a reportable segment and is disclosed as "Other" herein.

Segment Adjusted EBITDA is the profitability metric reported to the Company's chief operating decision maker for purposes of making decisions about allocation of resources to, and assessing performance of, each reportable segment. Segment Adjusted EBITDA is a GAAP financial measure that is calculated as Revenue less Direct operating expenses and SG&A expenses, excluding restructuring and other costs. Restructuring and other costs include costs associated with cost savings initiatives such as severance, consulting and termination costs and other special costs.
