Westwood One, Inc. Reports Results for the Full Year and Fourth Quarter 2010 PR Newswire NEW YORK, April 13, 2011 NEW YORK, April 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Westwood One, Inc. (NASDAQ: WWON), a leading independent provider of network radio content and traffic information to the radio, television and digital sectors, today reported operating results for the full year and fourth quarter 2010. As reflected in its financial statements, Westwood One is organized into two business segments: Network Radio and Metro Traffic. Network Radio distributes news, sports, music, talk and entertainment programming to approximately 5,000 radio stations. Metro Traffic consists of Metro Traffic Radio, which produces and distributes traffic and other local information reports to over 2,250 radio stations, and Metro Television, which produces and distributes such reports to approximately 182 television stations. Westwood One's fourth quarter revenue increased $6.0 million, or 6.5%, to $98.3million from $92.3million in 2009. Revenue for the full year 2010 increased $22.2 million, or 6.5%, to $362.5million compared to $340.3million in 2009. "Our fourth quarter and year end revenue increases reflect our strategy of growing our radio and digital business by launching new programming, expanding our distribution, renewing key content partnerships, and investing in our salesforce to support our revenue structure," said Rod Sherwood, President. "We saw revenue growth in Network Radio from our premium sports partnerships, including NFL and NCAA football, and from our music and entertainment programming. Metro Traffic Radio had higher revenue in key advertising categories of financial services, retail, automotive and restaurants. Our fourth quarter revenue growth was offset by declines in Metro Television revenue primarily due to lower ratings and audience levels. We have restructured the television business in the first quarter of 2011, and anticipate that performance will improve for the full year." Recently Westwood One also increased its operating and financial flexibility, and reduced its financial risk, by significantly easing its debt leverage covenants with its lenders. In addition, on February 28, 2011, Westwood One obtained $10 million in additional liquidity when Gores purchased additional shares of common stock of Westwood One. Network Radio revenue grew by 9.8% in the fourth quarter and by 7.1% for the full year compared to the same periods in 2009, outpacing overall network market growth of 5.4% for the fourth quarter and 2.5% for total year according to industry sources. Revenue for the total Metro Traffic business increased 2.2% in the fourth quarter and increased 5.8% for the full year compared to the same periods in 2009. Metro Traffic Radio revenue grew by 14.3% in the fourth quarter and 9.2% for the full year, outpacing the growth of the combined local/national radio market of 7.0% for the fourth quarter and 6.0% for the full year (as reported by the Radio Advertising Bureau). Metro Television revenue decreased by 36.8% in the fourth quarter, due to lower ratings and audience levels, and decreased by 4.9% for the full year. The Metro Television business is being restructured to focus on increasing the number of television affiliates, thereby reducing our need to purchase inventory, which we believe will improve profitability over time. To date in 2011, Metro Television has increased affiliates from 165 to 182. Westwood One's operating loss in the fourth quarter was $9.4million, which represents a $0.2 million improvement over the fourth quarter of 2009. Adjusted EBITDA(1) for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $12.1million, an increase of $1.7million from $10.4million in 2009. Adjusted EBITDA(1) in the fourth quarter was $0.9million compared to $6.1million in the fourth quarter of 2009. This was primarily due to a decline in Adjusted EBITDA of $2.4 million for Network Radio, due primarily to investments directly associated with revenue generation, and a decline in Adjusted EBITDA of $2.4 million for Metro Traffic, which was primarily the result of decreased revenue in Metro Television. In addition, corporate expense increased by $0.4 million. Three Months Ended December 31, 2010 For the three months ended December 31, 2010, revenue was $98.3million, an increase of $6.0million, or 6.5%, compared to $92.3million in the fourth quarter of 2009. Network Radio revenue was $57.2million, an increase of $5.1million, or 9.8%, compared to $52.1million in the fourth quarter of 2009. Advertising revenue was up in sports, primarily due to NFL and NCAA football, a new sports prep service, music and entertainment programming, including Billy Bush and VH1 Classic Rock Nights, and news programming. These revenue increases were partially offset by revenue declines in talk radio programming. Overall, Metro Traffic revenue for the fourth quarter was $41.2million, an increase of $0.9 million, or 2.2%, from $40.3million in 2009. Revenue for Metro Traffic Radio was $35.1 million, an increase of $4.4 million or 14.3%, compared to $30.7 million in 2009. This increase was based largely on increased advertising revenue in key categories, as well as increased distribution. Revenue for Metro Television was $6.0 million, a decrease of $3.5 million or 36.8%, from $9.6 million in 2009, primarily due to lower ratings and audience levels that required us to use additional inventory to meet customers' audience requirements. Operating loss in the fourth quarter of 2010 improved by $0.2million, or 2.1% to $9.4million from $9.6million in 2009. This improvement was largely due to lower restructuring and special charges of $2.4 million and lower depreciation and amortization of $3.0 million. The improvement was partially offset by lower EBITDA from Network Radio and Metro Traffic. Adjusted EBITDA(1) was $0.9million compared to $6.1million in the fourth quarter of 2009. Adjusted EBITDA for Network Radio decreased $2.4 million, and for Metro Traffic decreased $2.4 million. In addition, corporate expenses increased by $0.4 million. The decrease in Network Radio Adjusted EBITDA was largely due to higher expenses associated with sports programming, guaranteed program commissions and revenue-sharing expenses for certain contracts, and investments in our advertising salesforces, along with related commission expenses. In light of the increased programming expenses noted above, Westwood One has not renewed, or is restructuring, certain of these Network Radio contracts to improve profit margins. The decrease in Metro Traffic Adjusted EBITDA was primarily related to lower revenue and increased inventory purchases in Metro Television, partially offset by higher revenue that exceeded increased expenses in Metro Traffic Radio. Interest expense in the fourth quarter of 2010 increased $0.9million, or 17.4%, to $6.1million from $5.2million in the fourth quarter of 2009. This reflects higher average balances of our outstanding debt as a result of our increased borrowings, and increased interest expense related to a capital lease incurred in connection with the Culver City sale-leaseback transaction that closed in December2009. The Company's tax benefit decreased $7.5million to $3.3million compared to $10.8million in the fourth quarter of 2009, due to a lower effective tax rate. Net loss for the fourth quarter was $11.9million, or $0.56 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $3.9million, or $0.19 per diluted share, in 2009. The year-over-year change in net loss reflects the reduced tax benefit of $7.5 million, partially offset by the lower operating loss of $0.2 million. Per share amounts reflect the effect of the 200-for-1 reverse stock split of our common stock that occurred on August3, 2009. Fourth quarter 2009 average share amounts were lower than average share amounts in the fourth quarter of 2010 as a result of shares of common stock being issued to Gores in September 2010, and to the owners of Jaytu (d/b/a Sigalert) in connection with the Sigalert acquisition at the end of December 2009. Free cash flow(2) usage in the fourth quarter of 2010 was $1.1 million as compared to a free cash flow usage of $10.5 million in 2009, representing an increased cash flow of $9.4 million. This was due to favorable working capital changes of $17.2 million and lower capital expenditures of $1.0 million, partially offset by a higher net loss of $8.0 million and non-cash adjustments of $0.8 million. Year ended December 31, 2010 (3) For the year ended December 31, 2010, revenue increased $22.2million, or 6.5%, to $362.5million compared with $340.3million in 2009. Network revenue increased to $197.0million from $183.9million for 2009, an increase of $13.1 million, or 7.1%. This increase resulted from increased revenue primarily related to sports programming, including NFL-related programs, the 2010 Winter Olympics, NCAA football, the NCAA Men's Basketball Championship, and music programming, principally country music. These increases were partially offset by a decline in talk radio revenue, which was partly due to the cancellation of certain talk programs. Overall, Metro Traffic revenue for the year ended December 31, 2010 increased to $165.5million from $156.4 million in 2009, an increase of $9.1million, or 5.8%. This increase was principally related to increased revenue from Metro Traffic Radio advertising of $10.9 million, primarily in financial services, retail, automotive, and restaurant advertising, partially offset by decreases in travel, entertainment and home improvement services advertising. It also reflects a decrease in Metro Television revenue of $1.8 million primarily due to reduced ratings and audience levels that required us to use additional inventory to meet customers' audience requirements. Operating loss in the year ended December 31, 2010 was $22.0million compared with an operating loss of $97.6million in 2009, or a decrease of $75.6million. The decreased loss reflects the absence of the 2009 impairment charge of $50.5 million, an increase in revenue, lower restructuring and special charges, and lower depreciation and amortization, partially offset by an increase in operating costs. Adjusted EBITDA(1) for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $12.1million, an increase of $1.7million from $10.4million in 2009. This improvement was due to increased Network Radio and Metro Traffic revenue, partially offset by increased station compensation and payroll-related expense. The higher station compensation expenses resulted from increased inventory purchases to support fourth quarter revenue growth and provide a foundation for revenue growth in 2011. The increase in payroll-related expense reflects additional sales force hires in the first half of 2010 and variable compensation tied to revenue increases. For the year ended December 31, 2010, net loss was $31.3million, or $1.50 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $82.6million, or $9.51 per diluted share, in 2009. The year-over-year change in net loss reflects the absence of the 2009 impairment charge of $50.5 million and lower restructuring and special charges of $15.6 million, partially offset by reduced tax benefits of $16.9 million. Per share amounts reflect the effect of the 200-for-1 reverse stock split of our common stock that occurred on August 3, 2009. Average share amounts for the year ended December31, 2009 were significantly lower than the year ended December 31, 2010 as a result of the conversions of shares of preferred stock into common stock in July and August2009 and the shares issued to Gores in September 2010. Free cash flow(2) for the year 2010 was a usage of $0.7 million as compared to a free cash flow usage of $31.5 million for the comparable period in 2009, representing an increased cash flow of $30.8 million. This was due to a federal tax refund of $12.9 million in 2010, higher working capital sources of $11.6 million, other non-cash adjustments of $7.8 million, and a lower net loss of $0.8 million (absent the 2009 impairment charge of $50.5 million), partially offset by higher capital expenditures of $2.3 million. Outlook Analysts are predicting modest growth for the overall radio industry in 2011, with revenue growth forecasts ranging from low single digits of 1.3% (Magna) to 3.7% (BIA/Kelsey) or 4.0% (Jim Boyle, Gilford Securities). Westwood One is optimistic that recent investments in new programming, renewal of key partnerships in Network Radio, and increased distribution in Metro Traffic, coupled with investments in the salesforces of both Network Radio and Metro Traffic, will help increase revenues for the Company for the full year 2011. In addition, the cost reduction and margin improvement actions implemented in the first quarter of 2011 are anticipated to yield EBITDA growth for the full year 2011. About Westwood One Westwood One (NASDAQ: WWON) is one of the nation's largest providers of network radio programming and one of the largest domestic providers of traffic information in the U.S. Westwood One serves more than 5,000 radio and 182 TV stations in the U.S. Westwood One provides over 150 news, sports, music, talk and entertainment programs, features and live events to numerous media partners. Through its Metro Traffic business, Westwood One provides traffic reporting and local news, sports and weather to more than 2,250 radio and TV stations. Westwood One also provides digital and other cross-platform delivery of its Network and Metro Traffic content to radio, television and newspaper affiliates. Footnotes to Press Release (1) Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that is reconciled to net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, its most directly comparable GAAP measure, in the accompanying financial tables. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities adjusted to exclude the following: interest expense, income tax expense (benefit), restructuring charges, special charges, other non-operating income, amortization of deferred financing costs and changes in assets and liabilities, including deferred tax assets and liabilities. Adjusted EBITDA is used by Westwood One to calculate its compliance with its debt covenants under the terms of its senior secured notes and senior credit facility. Westwood One believes this measure is relevant and useful for investors because it allows investors to view performance in the same manner as Westwood One's lenders (who also own approximately 22.5% of Westwood One's equity as a result of the refinancing, excluding Gores). Since Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of performance calculated in accordance with GAAP, it should not be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for, consolidated statements of operations and cash flow data prepared in accordance with GAAP. Adjusted EBITDA as Westwood One calculates it, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. In addition, this measure does not necessarily represent funds available for discretionary use, and is not necessarily a measure of Westwood One's ability to fund its cash needs. Westwood One uses Adjusted EBITDA as a liquidity measure, which is different from operating cash flow, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure calculated and prepared in accordance with GAAP. Users of this financial information should consider the types of events and transactions which are excluded. (2) Free cash flow is a non-GAAP financial measure that is reconciled to net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, its most directly comparable GAAP measure, in the accompanying financial tables. Free cash flow is defined by Westwood One as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, less capital expenditures. Westwood One uses free cash flow, among other measures, to evaluate its operating performance. Management believes free cash flow provides investors with an important perspective on Westwood One's cash available to service debt and Westwood One's ability to make strategic acquisitions and investments, maintain its capital assets and fund ongoing operations. As a result, free cash flow is a significant measure of Westwood One's ability to generate long term value. Westwood One believes the presentation of free cash flow is relevant and useful for investors because it allows investors to view performance in a manner similar to the method used by management. In addition, free cash flow is also a primary measure used externally by Westwood One's investors, analysts and peers in its industry for purposes of valuation and comparing the operating performance of Westwood One to other companies in its industry. As free cash flow is not a measure of performance calculated in accordance with GAAP, free cash flow should not be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for, net income as an indicator of operating performance or net cash provided by (used in) operating activities as a measure of liquidity. Free cash flow, as Westwood One calculates it, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. In addition, free cash flow does not necessarily represent funds available for discretionary use and is not necessarily a measure of Westwood One's ability to fund its cash needs. In arriving at free cash flow, Westwood One adjusts net cash provided by (used in) operating activities to remove the impact of cash flow timing differences to arrive at a measure which Westwood One believes more accurately reflects funds available for discretionary use. Specifically, Westwood One adjusts net cash provided by (used in) operating activities (the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure) for capital expenditures, special charges, and deferred taxes, in addition to removing the impact of sources and or uses of cash resulting from changes in operating assets and liabilities. Accordingly, users of this financial information should consider the types of events and transactions which are not reflected. (3) As a result of ourrefinancing that closed on April 23, 2009, we applied the acquisition method of accounting and applied the SEC rules and the authoritative guidance regarding "push down" accounting treatment. Accordingly, our consolidated financial statements and transactional records prior to the closing of the refinancing on April 23, 2009 reflect the historical accounting basis in our assets and liabilities and are labeled predecessor company, while such records subsequent to the refinancing are labeled successor company and reflect the push down basis of accounting for the new fair values in our financial statements. This is presented in our consolidated financial statements by a vertical black line division which appears between the columns entitled predecessor company and successor company on the statements and relevant notes. The black line signifies that the amounts shown for the periods prior to and subsequent to the refinancing are not comparable. Management, however, continues to use such statements to measure Westwood One's performance against comparable prior periods. For purposes of presenting a comparison of our 2009 results to the current periods, we have presented our 2009 results as the mathematical addition of the predecessor company and successor company periods. We believe that this presentation provides the most meaningful information about our results of operations. This approach is not consistent with GAAP, may yield results that are not strictly comparable on a period-to-period basis and may not reflect the actual results we would have achieved.
