AirMedia Announces Unaudited Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

BEIJING, Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AirMedia Group Inc. ("AirMedia" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: AMCN), a leading operator of out-of-home advertising platforms in China targeting mid-to-high-end consumers, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

Second Quarter 2014 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenues decreased by 3.5% year-over-year to US$62.1 million. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to AirMedia's termination of certain unprofitable or low-margin contracts.
  • Net revenues decreased by 3.0% year-over-year to US$61.5 million.
  • Gross profit increased by 40.5% year-over-year to US$4.6 million.
  • Net loss attributable to AirMedia's shareholders was US$5.4 million. Basic and diluted net loss attributable to AirMedia's shareholders per American Depositary Share ("ADS") were both US$0.10.
  • Adjusted EBITDA attributable to AirMedia's shareholders (non-GAAP), which is EBITDA attributable to AirMedia's shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses, was negative US$3.7 million.

"Although the second quarter was a challenging quarter for us, we are on the right track of turnaround. Revenues from our gas station media network grew 28.7% year-over-year, demonstrating that we are on the right direction to turn around this product line. However, its quarter-over-quarter growth did not reach our internal expectation due to some pull back of orders from advertisers as a result of some mechanical malfunctions of our LED screens. The malfunctions were caused by problematic design by our LED screen supplier of their inner structure. We anticipate restoring a majority of these LED screens to proper function by the end of the third quarter of this year. This small turbulence may impact our original break-even schedule for this product line, but is not expected to change its long-term growth prospects. We expect resume normal sales of advertisement slots on the LED screens and to see a big increase in sales from this product line in the fourth quarter of this year," commented Mr. Herman Guo, chairman and chief executive officer of AirMedia.

"After Beijing, we launched our interactive platform on our TV-attached digital frames in two airports in Shanghai on June 20. We have received advertising orders on our interactive platform from various well-known international and domestic brands, including some advertisers in mobile internet sector, which rarely put orders with us before we had this innovative product," continued Mr. Guo.

"We have recently strengthened our team of Wi-Fi business. With the addition of industry guru and technical expert, we are developing the platform and portal for our in-flight Wi-Fi business," further commented Mr. Guo.

"Our new business initiatives such as our in-flight Wi-Fi and on-train Wi-Fi business are at the stage of investment, which was reflected in the increase in our operating expenses. We believe we are investing in the Company's future. We find these investments to be prudent and expect them to bring tremendous growth to the Company in the future," commented Mr. Richard Wu, AirMedia's chief financial officer.

Revenues from digital frames in airports

Revenues from digital frames in airports for the second quarter of 2014 decreased by 6.1% year-over-year and by 9.0% quarter-over-quarter to US$32.0 million. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter decreases were primarily due to a soft advertising market.

The year-over-year increase in revenues from digital TV screens on airplanes was primarily due to the increase in revenues from digital TV screens on Air China's airplanes.

Revenues from traditional media in airports

Revenues from traditional media in airports for the second quarter of 2014 decreased by 22.3% year-over-year and by 2.0% quarter-over-quarter to US$14.3 million.

The quarter-over-quarter decrease was primarily due to a soft advertising market.

Revenues from the gas station media network

Revenues from the gas station media network for the second quarter of 2014 increased by 28.7% year-over-year and by 4.5% quarter-over-quarter to US$2.9 million. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter increases were primarily due to increases in revenues from LED screens in the gas stations.

Concession fees for the second quarter of 2014 decreased by 8.3% year-over-year to US$42.6 million, which remained relatively unchanged from the previous quarter.

Notes:




(1)

A time slot is defined as a 30-second equivalent advertising time unit for digital TV screens in airports and digital TV screens on airplanes, which is shown during each advertising cycle on a weekly basis in a given airport or on a monthly basis on the routes of a given airline, respectively. AirMedia's airport advertising programs are shown repeatedly on a daily basis during a given week in one-hour cycles and each hour of programming includes 20 minutes of advertising content, which allows the Company to sell a maximum of 40 time slots per week. The number of time slots available for sale for the digital TV screens in airports during the period presented is calculated by multiplying the time slots available for sale per week per airport by the number of weeks during the period presented when AirMedia had operations in each airport and then calculating the sum of all the time slots available for sale for each of the Company's network airports. The length of AirMedia's in-flight programs typically ranges from approximately 45 minutes to an hour per flight, approximately five to 13 minutes of which consist of advertising content. The number of time slots available for sale for our digital TV screens on airplanes during the period presented is calculated by multiplying the time slots per airline per month by the number of months during the period presented when AirMedia had operations on each airline and then calculating the sum of all the time slots available for sale for each of its network airlines.



(2)

A time slot is defined as a 12-second equivalent advertising time or 6-second equivalent advertising time units for digital frames in airports, which is shown during each standard advertising cycle on a weekly basis in a given airport. AirMedia's standard airport advertising programs are shown repeatedly on a daily basis during a given week in 10-minute cycles or 5-minute cycles, which allows the Company to sell a maximum of 50 time slots per week. The length of time slot and advertising program cycle of some digital frames in several airports are different from the standard ones. The number of time slots available for sale for the digital frames in airports during the period presented is calculated by multiplying the time slots per week per airport by the number of weeks during the period presented when the Company had operations in each airport and then calculating the sum of all the time slots available for each of its network airports.



(3)

Number of time slots sold refers to the number of 30-second equivalent advertising time units for digital TV screens in airports and digital TV screens on airplanes or 12-second equivalent advertising time units or 6-second equivalent advertising time units for digital frames in airports sold during the period presented.



(4)

Utilization rate for digital TV screens in airports, digital TV screens on airplanes and digital frames in airports refers to total time slots sold as a percentage of total time slots available for sale during the relevant period.



(5)

Average advertising revenue per time slot sold for digital TV screens in airports, digital TV screens on airplanes and digital frames in airports are calculated by dividing each of the Company's revenues derived from digital TV screens in airports, digital TV screens on airplanes and digital frames in airports by the respective number of time slots sold.



(6)

The number of locations available for sale in traditional media is defined as the sum of (1) the number of light boxes and billboards in Beijing, Shenzhen, Wenzhou and certain other airports (light boxes and billboards), and (2) the number of gate bridges in certain airports (gate bridges).



(7)

The number of locations sold is defined as the sum of (1) the number of light boxes and billboards sold and (2) the number of gate bridges sold. To calculate the number of light boxes and billboards sold in a given airport, the "utilization rates of light boxes and billboards" in such airport is first calculated by dividing the "total value of light boxes and billboards sold" in such airport by the "total value of light boxes and billboards" in such airport. The "total value of light box and billboard sold" in a given airport is calculated as the daily listing prices of each light boxes and billboards sold in such airport multiplied by their respective number of days sold during the period presented. The "total value of light boxes and billboards" in a given airport is calculated as the sum of quarterly listing prices of all the light boxes and billboards in such airport during the period presented. The number of light boxes and billboards sold in a given airport is then calculated as the number of light boxes and billboards available for sale in such airport multiplied by the utilization rates of light boxes and billboards in such airport. The number of gate bridges sold in a given airport is counted based on numbers in the relevant contracts.



(8)

Utilization rate for traditional media in airports refers to total locations sold as a percentage of total locations available for sale during the period presented.



(9)

Average advertising revenue per location sold is calculated by dividing the revenues derived from all the locations sold by the number of locations sold during the period presented.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures 

AirMedia's management uses non-GAAP financial measures to gain an understanding of AirMedia's comparative operating performance and future prospects. EBITDA is being used as a non-GAAP measurement in evaluating the operating performance. EBITDA consists of net (loss)/income attributable to AirMedia Group Inc.'s shareholders before interest income, interest expense(if any), income tax expense/ (benefit), depreciation, and amortization of acquired intangible assets.

Adjusted EBITDA represents EBITDA adjusted for share-based compensation. Our management believes that the use of Adjusted EBITDA eliminates items that, management believes, have less bearing on our operating performance, thereby highlighting trends in our core business which may not otherwise be apparent.

EBITDA is used by AirMedia's management in their financial and operating decision-making as a non-GAAP financial measure, because management believes it reflects AirMedia's ongoing business and operating performance in a manner that allows meaningful period-to-period comparisons. AirMedia's management believes that EBITDA measures provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating AirMedia's operating performance in the same manner as management does, if they so choose. Specifically, AirMedia believes the EBITDA measures provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain charges that the Company believes are not indicative of its core operating results.

The non-GAAP financial measures have limitations. They do not include all items of income and expense that affect AirMedia's income from operations. Specifically, these non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, may not be comparable to non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies and, with respect to the non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain items under GAAP, do not reflect any benefit that such items may confer to AirMedia. Management compensates for these limitations by also considering AirMedia's financial results as determined in accordance with GAAP.

These forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as "will," "expect," "anticipate," "future," "intend," "plan," "believe," "estimate," "confident" and similar statements. Among other things, the Business Outlook section and the quotations from management in this announcement, as well as AirMedia Group Inc.'s strategic and operational plans, contain forward-looking statements. AirMedia may also make written or oral forward-looking statements in its reports to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, in its annual report to shareholders, in press releases and other written materials and in oral statements made by its officers, directors or employees to third parties. Statements that are not historical facts, including statements about AirMedia's beliefs and expectations, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties. A number of important factors could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. Potential risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to: if advertisers or the viewing public do not accept, or lose interest in, AirMedia's air travel advertising network, AirMedia may be unable to generate sufficient cash flow from its operating activities and its prospects and results of operations could be negatively affected; AirMedia derives most of its revenues from the provision of air travel advertising services, and any slowdown in the air travel advertising industry in China may materially and adversely affect its revenues and results of operations; AirMedia's strategy of expanding its advertising network by building new air travel media platforms and expanding into traditional media in airports may not succeed, and its failure to do so could materially reduce the attractiveness of its network and harm its business, reputation and results of operations; if AirMedia does not succeed in its expansion into gas station and other outdoors media advertising, its future results of operations and growth prospects may be materially and adversely affected; if AirMedia's customers reduce their advertising spending or are unable to pay AirMedia in full, in part or at all for a period of time due to an economic downturn in China and/or elsewhere or for any other reason, AirMedia's revenues and results of operations may be materially and adversely affected; AirMedia faces risks related to health epidemics, which could materially and adversely affect air travel and result in reduced demand for its advertising services or disrupt its operations; if AirMedia is unable to retain existing concession rights contracts or obtain new concession rights contracts on commercially advantageous terms that allow it to operate its advertising platforms, AirMedia may be unable to maintain or expand its network coverage and its business and prospects may be harmed; a significant portion of AirMedia's revenues has been derived from the six largest airports and four largest airlines in China, and if any of these airports or airlines experiences a material business disruption, AirMedia's ability to generate revenues and its results of operations would be materially and adversely affected; AirMedia's limited operating history makes it difficult to evaluate its future prospects and results of operations; and other risks outlined in AirMedia's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. AirMedia does not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statement, except as required under applicable law.
