Share with Twitter Share with LinkedIn

BEIJING, March 14, 2013 /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 fourth quarter and the full year ended December 31, 2012.

Fourth Quarter 2012 Financial and Business Highlights

  • Total revenues decreased by 4.2% year-over-year and increased by 15.2% quarter-over-quarter to US$84.2 million. The year-over-year decrease was partially due to China's replacement of regular business tax with Value Added Tax ("VAT") in Beijing, one of AirMedia's key regions of operations.
  • Net revenues decreased by 2.8% year-over-year and increased by 15.8% quarter-over-quarter to US$82.6 million.
  • Net income attributable to AirMedia's shareholders was US$3.4 million. Basic and diluted net income attributable to AirMedia's shareholders per American Depositary Share ("ADS") were both US$0.05.
  • Adjusted net income attributable to AirMedia's shareholders (non-GAAP), which is net income attributable to AirMedia's shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired intangible assets, impairment of goodwill, and impairment of intangible assets, was US$4.4 million. Adjusted basic net income attributable to AirMedia's shareholders per ADS (non-GAAP), which is adjusted net income attributable to AirMedia's shareholders (non-GAAP) divided by the number of ADSs outstanding, was US$0.07. Adjusted diluted net income attributable to AirMedia's shareholders per ADS (non-GAAP), which is adjusted net income attributable to AirMedia's shareholders (non-GAAP) divided by the number of ADSs outstanding as adjusted for dilution after taking into account option grants under the Company's current Share Incentive Plan, was US$0.07.

Fiscal Year 2012 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenues increased by 5.5% year-over-year to US$293.0 million.
  • Net revenues increased by 6.0% year-over-year to US286.7 million.
  • Net loss attributable to AirMedia's shareholders was US$32.7 million, which included an impairment of goodwill and an impairment of intangible assets of total US$30.2 million. Basic and diluted net loss attributable to AirMedia's shareholders per ADS were both US$0.53.
  • Adjusted net income attributable to AirMedia's shareholders (non-GAAP) was US$3.6 million. Adjusted basic net income attributable to AirMedia's shareholders per ADS (non-GAAP) was US$0.06. Adjusted diluted net income attributable to AirMedia's shareholders per ADS (non-GAAP) was US$0.06.

"Thanks to the strong growth in advertising from automobile manufacturers and sequential growth from most of our top ten advertising industries, we were able to raise our net revenue guidance of the fourth quarter of 2012 in January 2013 and meet our guidance at the high end. We achieved income from operations of US$6.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, a record high quarterly number for us in the past four years," commented Mr. Herman Guo, chairman and chief executive officer of AirMedia.

"Our mega-size LED screens have become the biggest growth driver for our company in 2012, even though many of the mega-size LED screens currently in operation commenced operations in the second half of 2012. We currently operate mega-size LED screens in seven airports and are in the process of installing mega-size LED screens in another four airports. With the operations of our mega-size LED screens in more airports in 2013, we expect that revenues from this product line will continue to grow fast and that it will become an important product line for our company," added Mr. Herman Guo. "We have realized that the key to make our company profitable again is not only about top-line growth, but also about how we can turn around our unprofitable product lines, which will help us improve our margins. We have identified some possible solutions and directions for our loss-making product lines such as our gas station media network, and are in the process of implementing such solutions."

"We made improvements on cost control in fiscal year 2012. Net revenues of fiscal year 2012 grew by 6.0% year-over-year while cost of revenues only increased by 2.5% year-over-year. Non-GAAP adjusted net income for fiscal year 2012 increased by 669.9% year-over-year, which reflected the operating leverage of our business model. We will continue to focus on increasing our revenues and eliminating the losses from our unprofitable product lines in 2013," Mr. Henry Ho, AirMedia's chief financial officer, commented.

Total revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 reached US$84.2 million, representing a year-over-year decrease of 4.2% from US$87.8 million in the same period one year ago and a quarter-over-quarter increase of 15.2% from US$73.1 million in the previous quarter. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to decreases in revenues from digital TV screens in airports, traditional media in airports and gas station media network as well as China's replacement of regular business tax with VAT in Beijing, one of AirMedia's key regions of operations. Prior to September 1, 2012, revenues were recorded gross of business tax and subsequent to the change, revenues are recorded net of VAT thereafter. Revenues from most of the Company's product lines booked in total revenues and the above breakdown in the fourth quarter of 2012 were already net revenues after deducting VAT, while revenues in the fourth quarter of 2011 and most revenues in the previous quarter were booked before deducting business tax, which was partially the reason for the year-over-year decrease and partially offset the quarter-over-quarter increase, as such year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter revenue comparisons cannot be made when revenues are not booked on the same basis. The quarter-over-quarter increase in total revenues was primarily due to increases in revenues from most of the Company's products lines.

Revenues from digital frames in airports

Revenues from digital frames in airports for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased by 6.5% year-over-year and by 16.5% quarter-over-quarter to US$40.8 million. The year-over-year increase was due to additional revenues from the rapidly growing product line of mega-size LED screens, which added operations in additional airports. The quarter-over-quarter increase was primarily due to advertisers' year-end budget flush, additional revenues from the rapidly growing product line of mega-size LED screens and a seasonally strong quarter in the fourth quarter.

Revenues from digital TV screens in airports

Revenues from digital TV screens in airports for the fourth quarter of 2012 decreased by 42.3% year-over-year and increased by 97.4% quarter-over-quarter to US$5.4 million. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to a drop in demand from advertisers as a result of competition from AirMedia's other product lines and the fact that, with the rapid development of mobile internet, more people now pay attention to their cell phones instead of AirMedia's digital TV screens. The quarter-over-quarter increase was primarily due to advertisers' year-end budget flush and a seasonally strong quarter in the fourth quarter.

Revenues from digital TV screens on airplanes

Revenues from digital TV screens on airplanes for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased by 4.5% year-over-year and by 19.7% quarter-over-quarter to US$7.9 million. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to the Company's continued sales efforts. The quarter-over-quarter increase was primarily due to advertisers' year-end budget flush and a seasonally strong quarter in the fourth quarter.

Revenues from traditional media in airports

Revenues from traditional media in airports for the fourth quarter of 2012 decreased by 6.4% year-over-year and increased by 3.4% quarter-over-quarter to US$20.8 million. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to a reduction in the number of locations for sale as a result of a delay in a scheduled media format upgrade. AirMedia was upgrading 18 light boxes at prime locations inside the Beijing Capital International Airport to a better advertising format, but the upgrade is behind schedule. The quarter-over-quarter increase was primarily due to a seasonally strong quarter in the fourth quarter.

Revenues from the gas station media network

Revenues from the gas station media network for the fourth quarter of 2012 decreased by 20.0% year-over-year and increased by 22.4% quarter-over-quarter to US$4.8 million. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to an exceptionally strong quarter in the fourth quarter of 2011. Advertisers cut spending on non-core advertising media, such as gas station advertising, in the first half of 2012 due to limited advertising budgets as a result of advertisers' concern regarding the state of China's economy. Revenues from the Company's gas station media network began to rebound in the third quarter and fourth quarter of 2012, but were not yet back to the level they were in the fourth quarter of 2011. The quarter-over-quarter increase was primarily due to advertisers' year-end budget flush and a seasonally strong quarter in the fourth quarter.

Revenues from other media

Revenues from other media were primarily revenues from unipole signs and other outdoors media. Revenues from other media for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased by 1.8% year-over-year and decreased by 16.5% quarter-over-quarter to US$2.5 million. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to the Company's continued sales efforts. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was primarily due to expiration of the contracts for some locations in November and December 2012. AirMedia has renewed some of these contracts and expect to resume operations of these locations in February 2013.

Business tax and other sales tax

Business tax and other sales tax for the fourth quarter of 2012 were US$1.5 million, compared to US$2.8 million in the same period one year ago and US$1.7 million in the previous quarter. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter decreases were due to China's replacement of regular business tax with the VAT in Beijing, one of AirMedia's key regions of operations. Prior to September 1, 2012, revenues were recorded gross of business tax and subsequent to the change, revenues are recorded net of VAT thereafter. Revenues from most of the Company's product lines booked in total revenues were already net revenues after deducting VAT in the fourth quarter of 2012. Only some revenues in "other revenues in air travel" are still subject to business tax. The majority of the Company's business tax and other sales tax, amounting to US$1.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2012, were other sales tax.

Net revenues

Net revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 reached US$82.6 million, representing a year-over-year decrease of 2.8% from US$85.0 million in the same period one year ago and a quarter-over-quarter increase of 15.8% from US$71.4 million in the previous quarter.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 was US$65.4 million, representing a year-over-year decrease of 0.6% from 65.8 million in the same period one year ago and a quarter-over-quarter increase of 4.5% from US$62.6 million in the previous quarter. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to lower agency fees for third-party advertising agencies, which were partially offset by a non-cash loss on the disposal of certain fixed assets of US$0.8 million and higher concession fees. The year-over-year decrease in agency fees was primarily due to a lower revenue base and a partial reversal of certain previously accrued agency fees of US$1.5 million that were waived by the related agents. The quarter-over-quarter increase in cost of revenues was primarily due to higher agency fees for third-party advertising agencies, the disposal of fixed assets and higher concession fees. Cost of revenues as a percentage of net revenues in the fourth quarter of 2012 was 79.1%, up from 77.4% in the same period one year ago and down from 87.7% in the previous quarter.

AirMedia incurs concession fees to airports for placing and operating digital frames, digital TV screens, traditional media and other displays in airports, to airlines for playing programs on their digital TV screens, to Sinopec for placing outdoors media in its gas stations and to other media resources owners for placing unipole signs and other outdoors media.

Concession fees for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased by 9.2% year-over-year and by 1.4% quarter-over-quarter to US$45.1 million. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter increases were primarily due to newly signed or renewed concession rights contracts during the period. Concession fees as a percentage of net revenues in the fourth quarter of 2012 was 54.6%, increasing from 48.6% in the same period one year ago and decreasing from 62.4% in the previous quarter. The year-over-year increase of concession fees as a percentage of net revenues was primarily due to the fact that net revenues decreased while concession fees increased due to newly signed or renewed concession rights contracts. The quarter-over-quarter decrease of concession fees as a percentage of net revenues was primarily due to the fact that net revenues grew at a faster pace than concession fees.

Gross Profit

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2012 decreased by 10.3% year-over-year and increased by 95.7% quarter-over-quarter to US$17.3 million.

Gross profit as a percentage of net revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 was 20.9%, compared to 22.6% in the same period one year ago and 12.3% in the previous quarter. The quarter-over-quarter increase in gross profit as a percentage of net revenues was due to the fact that net revenues grew faster than cost of revenues.

Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were US$10.7 million, representing a year-over-year decrease of 19.0% from US$13.2 million in the same period one year ago and a quarter-over-quarter decrease of 73.1% from US$39.9 million in the previous quarter. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to fewer amortization of acquired intangible assets and the fact that there was an impairment of goodwill of US$1.0 million in the same period one year ago. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was primarily due to the fact that there were an impairment of goodwill of US$20.6 million and an impairment of intangible assets of US$9.6 million in the previous quarter.

Share-based compensation expenses included in the total operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were US$804,000, compared to share-based compensation expenses of US$582,000 in the same period one year ago and share-based compensation expenses of US$713,000 in the previous quarter. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter increases in share-based compensation expenses were primarily due to the fact that the Company granted certain stock options on September 1, 2012 and the fact that the deadline for certain stock option holders to exercise their vested stock options were extended to November 29, 2015.

Adjusted operating expenses (non-GAAP), which excluded share-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired intangible assets, impairment of goodwill, and impairment of intangible assets, were US$9.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, representing a year-over-year decrease of 9.1% from US$10.7 million in the same period one year ago and a quarter-over-quarter increase of 17.7% from US$8.3 million in the previous quarter. Adjusted operating expenses as a percentage of net revenues (non-GAAP), which is calculated by dividing adjusted operating expenses (non-GAAP) by net revenues, was 11.8% in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to 12.6% in the same period one year ago and 11.6% in the previous quarter. 

Please refer to the attached table captioned "Reconciliation of GAAP Operating Expenses to Non-GAAP Adjusted Operating Expenses" for a reconciliation of operating expenses under U.S. GAAP to adjusted operating expenses (non-GAAP).

Selling and marketing expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were US$5.3 million, including share-based compensation expenses of US$91,000. This represented a year-over-year increase of 6.1% from US$5.0 million and a quarter-over-quarter increase of 18.6% from US$4.5 million. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to higher marketing expenses and higher public relations and entertainment expenses. The quarter-over-quarter increase was primarily due to higher sales commissions for the Company's direct sales force.

General and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2012 were US$5.4 million, including share-based compensation expenses of US$713,000. This represented a year-over-year decrease of 25.1% from US$7.2 million in the same period one year ago and a quarter-over-quarter increase of 3.9% from US$5.2 million in the previous quarter. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to lower bad-debt provision and lower amortization of acquired intangible assets, which were partially offset by higher salary expenses, higher public relations and entertainment expenses and higher share-based compensation expenses. The quarter-over-quarter increase was primarily due to higher salary expenses, higher professional fees, and higher public relations and entertainment expenses, which were partially offset by lower amortization of acquired intangible assets.

Income/Loss from Operations

Income from operations for the fourth quarter of 2012 was US$6.5 million, compared to income from operations of US$6.0 million in the same period one year ago and loss from operations of US$31.1 million in the previous quarter. Income from operations as a percentage of net revenues for the fourth quarter of 2012 was 7.9%, compared to 7.1% in the same period one year ago and negative 43.5% in the previous quarter.

Adjusted income from operations (non-GAAP), which excluded share-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired intangible assets, impairment of goodwill and impairment of intangible assets, was US$7.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to adjusted income from operations (non-GAAP) of US$8.5 million in the same period one year ago and adjusted income from operations (non-GAAP) of US$557,000 in the previous quarter. Adjusted operating margin (non-GAAP), which excluded the effect of share-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired intangible assets, impairment of goodwill, and impairment of intangible assets, was 9.1% for the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to 10.0% in the same period one year ago and 0.8% in the previous quarter.

Total revenues for the fiscal year 2012 were US$293.0 million, representing a year-over-year increase of 5.5% from US$277.8 million in fiscal year 2011. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to the increases in revenues from digital frames in airports, traditional media in airports, and gas station media network.

Revenues from digital frames in airports

Revenues from digital frames in airports for fiscal year 2012 increased by 8.5% year-over-year to US$137.3 million from US$126.5 million in fiscal year 2011 primarily due to the additional revenues from the rapidly growing product line of mega-size LED screens and Company's continued sales efforts.

Revenues from digital TV screens in airports

Revenues from digital TV screens in airports for fiscal year 2012 decreased by 37.4% year-over-year to US$13.7 million due to a drop in demand from advertisers resulted from competition from AirMedia's other product lines and the fact that, with the rapid development of mobile internet, more people now pay attention to their cell phones instead of AirMedia's digital TV screens.

Revenues from digital TV screens on airplanes

Revenues from digital TV screens on airplanes for fiscal year 2012 decreased by 0.5% year-over-year to US$26.6 million.

Revenues from traditional media in airports

Revenues from traditional media in airports for fiscal year 2012 increased by 13.5% year-over-year to US$83.5 million. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to the Company's continued sales efforts and an increase in listing prices of many locations in 2012.

Revenues from the gas station media network

Revenues from the gas station media network for fiscal year 2012 increased by 10.4% year-over-year to US$14.2 million due to the Company's continued sales efforts and advertisers' continually growing acceptance of AirMedia's gas station media network.

Revenues from other media

Revenues from other media were primarily revenues from Beijing AirMedia City Outdoor Advertising Co., Ltd., a company AirMedia acquired in January 2010, which operates unipole signs and other outdoor media across Beijing. Revenues from other media for fiscal year 2012 increased by 4.6% year-over-year to US$10.2 million due to the Company's continued sales efforts.

Business tax and other sales tax

Business tax and other sales tax for fiscal year 2012 was US$6.2 million, representing a year-over-year decrease of 13.5% from US$7.2 million in fiscal year 2011 due to China's replacement of regular business tax with VAT in Beijing, one of AirMedia's key regions of operations. Prior to September 1, 2012, revenues were recorded gross of business tax and subsequent to the change, revenues are recorded net of VAT thereafter.

Net revenues for fiscal year 2012 were US$286.7 million, representing a year-over-year increase of 6.0% from US$270.6 million in fiscal year 2011.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues for fiscal year 2012 was US$250.6 million, representing a year-over-year increase of 2.5% from US$244.5 million in fiscal year 2011, primarily due to an increase in concession fees, which were partially offset by lower agency fees for third-party advertising agencies. The year-over-year decrease in agency fees was primarily due to a partial reversal of certain previously accrued agency fees of US$6.4 million that were waived by the related agents. Cost of revenues as a percentage of net revenues in fiscal year 2012 decreased to 87.4% from 90.3% in fiscal year 2011.

Concession fees for fiscal year 2012 were US$178.0 million, representing a year-over-year increase of 11.1% from US$160.2 million in fiscal year 2011, primarily due to new signed and renewed concession contracts entered into in 2012. Concession fees as a percentage of net revenues in fiscal year 2011 increased to 62.1% from 59.2% in fiscal year 2011 primarily due to the fact that concession fees grew faster than net revenues.

Gross Profit

Gross profit for fiscal year 2012 was US$36.1 million, representing a year-over-year increase of 38.2% from US$26.2 million in fiscal year 2011.

Gross profit as a percentage of net revenues for fiscal year 2012 was 12.6%, up from 9.7% in fiscal year 2011. The increase in gross profit as a percentage of net revenues was primarily due to the fact that net revenues grew faster than cost of revenues.

The increase in cash, restricted cash and short-term investments from December 31, 2011 was primarily due to positive cash flow from operations.  

ADS Repurchases and Expansion of Share Repurchase Program

On March 21, 2011, AirMedia's board of directors authorized AirMedia to repurchase up to US$20 million of its own outstanding ADSs within two years from March 21, 2011. On September 24, 2012, AirMedia's board of directors approved to increase the size of the share repurchase program to US$40 million from US$20 million and to extend the termination date of the share repurchase program to March 20, 2014 from March 20, 2013. As of March 10, 2013, AirMedia had repurchased an aggregate of 5,253,343 ADSs on the open market for a total consideration of US$15.1 million.

Director Announcement

On March 13, 2013, AirMedia expanded the size of its Board of Directors from seven to eight members and appointed Mr. Conor Chiahung Yang as an independent director to the Board and a member of its audit committee.

Other Recent Developments

On February 22, 2013, AirMedia obtained a concession rights contract to install and operate a mega-size LED screen above the security check area at the domestic departure hall in Hohhot Baita International Airport in Inner Mongolia province for three years.

On January 1, 2013, AirMedia renewed its concession rights contract with Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport to continue to operate its digital TV screens at Terminals A and B of the airport from January 1, 2013 to December 31, 2013.

Due to disagreements over renewal fees, AirMedia decided not to renew its concession rights contract for the digital TV screens on Air China's planes, and instead became a selling agent for Air China's digital TV screens starting from January 1, 2013. AirMedia believes it has the capability to convince most of the original advertisers on Air China to reallocate their advertising budgets to AirMedia's other product lines, especially AirMedia's digital frames in airports. AirMedia expects that the loss in revenues due to the loss of its concession rights contract with Air China would be smaller than the concession fees it would need to pay to Air China under a renewed concession rights contract. AirMedia believes that choosing not to renew the Air China concession rights contract for the time being will be beneficial to the Company, which will help AirMedia control increase of concession fee in the long term.

In late December 2012, as a selling agent, AirMedia started to sell advertisements on mega-size LED screens at Terminal 3 of Hangzhou Xiaoshan International Airport in Zhejiang province, and in Jinan Yaoqiang International Airport in Shandong province. AirMedia currently operates mega-size LED screens in seven airports and is in the process of installing mega-size LED screens in another four airports.

In December, 2012, AirMedia commenced operations of 58 stand-alone digital frames and 54 set of digital TV screens at Terminal 2 of Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport in Sichuan province.

Business Outlook

AirMedia currently expects its net revenues for the first quarter of 2013 to range from US$61.0 million to US$63.0 million, representing a year-over-year decrease of 7.8% to 4.8% from the same period in 2012 and a quarter-over-quarter decrease of 26.2% to 23.8% from the previous quarter.

AirMedia currently expects its concession fees to be approximately US$46.1 million in the first quarter of 2013. The quarter-over-quarter increase from the third quarter of 2012 will be primarily due to the concession fee commitments under concession rights contracts that were newly signed or renewed or are expected to be signed or renewed.

The above forecast reflects AirMedia's current and preliminary view and is therefore subject to change. Please refer to the Safe Harbor Statement below for the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement.

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. AirMedia's non-GAAP financial measures exclude the following non-cash items: (1) share-based compensation expenses, (2) amortization of acquired intangible assets, (3) impairment of goodwill, and (4) impairment of intangible assets.

Non-GAAP financial measures are used by AirMedia's management in their financial and operating decision-making, because management believes they reflect AirMedia's ongoing business and operating performance in a manner that allows meaningful period-to-period comparisons. AirMedia's management believes that these non-GAAP financial 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 non-GAAP financial 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. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered superior to, in isolation from or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with US GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliation of GAAP Net (Loss) Income and EPS and Non-GAAP Adjusted Net (Loss) Income and EPS", "Reconciliation of GAAP Operating Expenses to Non-GAAP Adjusted Operating Expenses" and "Reconciliation of GAAP (Loss) Income from Operations to Non-GAAP Adjusted (Loss) Income from Operations" set forth at the end of this release.
