Yellow Pages Unveils nNew YP Dine Mobile App for Restaurant and Dining Sector

Yellow Pages announced the launch of YP Dine, a new mobile app for the restaurant and dining sector. YP Dine joins YP Shopwise, an award-winning smart shopping and deals app, as the second in the lifestyle app offering by Yellow Pages as the company continues its investment in mobile media, its fastest growing segment. The YP Dine app helps Canadians make dining choices based primarily on mood and/or activity. These include 'happy hour', 'weekend brunch', 'lunch with coworkers', 'late night eats' and 'quick dinner fixes' to name a few. The app also allows standard searches for eateries by name or location. The app also integrates the top picks or 'playlists' by local chefs or restaurant owners, sharing their favourite discoveries in local eateries such as dim sum, sports bars, brunch and lunch spots, among others. The acquisitions of Bookenda and Dine.TO by Yellow Pages in December 2014 have seen the functionalities of the two services integrated into YP Dine. These include the ability to receive deals available at local restaurants, access and publish reviews, preview menus, and make reservations. The ability to place and pay for orders directly from the app will also be available in future iterations. YP Dine is currently only available for Montreal but will be adding Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary content by June 1st and expanding to other cities incrementally.

Yellow Pages Limited Announces Earnings Results for the Fourth Quarter and Full Year Ended December 31, 2014; Reaffirms Earnings Guidance for 2015 and 2018

Yellow Pages Limited announced earnings results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2014. For the quarter, the company reported Revenues decreased 9.5% to $215.3 million, as compared to $238 million in the last quarter of 2013. EBITDA reached $64.8 million, down from $91.3 million the year prior. Net earnings were $95.2 million and basic earnings per share of $3.53. This compares to net earnings of $31 million and basic earnings per share of $1.11 for the same period last year. This was principally explained by lower EBITDA, more than offset by an income tax recovery of $84.8 million recorded in 2014 related to the cancellation of various income tax liabilities following the settlement of tax assessments. The company utilized $3.9 million of free cash flow, as compared to free cash flow generation of $74.2 million for the same period last year. The decrease in free cash flow is mainly explained by lower EBITDA, timing in the payment of certain accounts payable, as well as higher capital expenditures. Capital expenditures were totaled $34.4 million, up from $14.3 million the year prior. For the full year, the company reported revenues were decreased to $877.5 million, representing a 9.7% year-over-year decline. The decrease is due to lower print revenues, which remain impacted by a decline in customer count and the migration of print advertising spend towards digital solutions. EBITDA was decreased to $316 million in 2014, as compared to $416.1 million the year prior. Net earnings were $188.5 million and basic earnings per share of $6.95. This compares to net earnings of $176.5 million and basic earnings per share of $6.34 for the same period last year. This was principally explained by lower EBITDA, more than offset by an income tax recovery of $84.8 million recorded in 2014 related to the cancellation of various income tax liabilities following the settlement of tax assessments. Free cash flow reached $72.6 million, as compared to $274.6 million in 2013. The decrease in free cash flow is mainly attributable to lower EBITDA, a more stable level of operating assets and liabilities, higher income taxes paid in 2014 (as the company was not required to pay income tax installments in 2013), and higher capital expenditures. Capital expenditures totaled $84 million, up from $66.1 million the year prior. The company reaffirms its long-term financial outlook relative to the Return to Growth Plan, targeting revenue and EBITDA growth in 2018. Digital revenue growth is anticipated to be maintained in the high single-digits for 2015 and thereafter. 2015 EBITDA will remain under pressure relative to 2014, as additional investments are made to accelerate the company's digital transformation. EBITDA margins, however, will be maintained between 30% and 35% for 2015 and thereafter. Capital expenditures are projected to reach between $70 and $75 million in 2015. Thereafter, capital expenditures, as a percentage of total revenues, will gradually decline to stabilize at approximately 5% by 2018.
