AirMedia Announces Unaudited Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2013 Financial Results

BEIJING, March 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- AirMedia Group Inc.

Fourth Quarter 2013 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenues decreased by 6.7% year-over-year and increased by 13.8% quarter-over-quarter to US$78.6 million. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to AirMedia's termination of operations of certain unprofitable or low-margin contracts.

  • Net income attributable to AirMedia's shareholders was US$1.5 million. Basic and diluted net income attributable to AirMedia's shareholders per American Depositary Share ("ADS") were both US$0.02.
  • 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$2.1 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$0.04. 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$0.04.

Fiscal Year 2013 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenues decreased by 5.6% year-over-year to US$276.5 million due to AirMedia's termination of operations of certain unprofitable or low-margin contracts and 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 5.0% year-over-year to US272.3 million.
  • Net loss attributable to AirMedia's shareholders was US$10.6 million. Basic and diluted net loss attributable to AirMedia's shareholders per ADS were both US$0.18.

"Our turn-around is well on track. For the gas station media network, as of February 28, 2014, we had started operating LED screens in 300 gas stations in six cities. We expect to have a network effect when we operate more than 500 LED screens in the gas stations, and expect this product line to break even in the third quarter of this year," commented Mr. Herman Guo, chairman and chief executive officer of AirMedia. "As for the TV-attached digital frames and digital TV screens in airports, our other two unprofitable product lines, we developed an interactive platform with a lucky draw system on our TV-attached digital frames and are experimenting with this new interactive platform in Beijing Capital International Airport ("Beijing Airport"). Our clients have shown strong initial interest in this new interactive platform and we are in the process of finalizing the advertisement contracts with them."

"Our network of mega-size LED screens in airports continued to grow and accounted for an increasing percentage of revenues of the Company. We believe our mega-size LED screens and in-flight internet business will bring further growth to the Company in the long run," continued Mr. Guo.

"Year 2014 will be a year of change for AirMedia. We expect to see returns on our efforts to turn around the unprofitable products with improved financial results," Mr. Henry Ho, AirMedia's chief financial officer, commented.

Total revenues for the fourth quarter of 2013 reached US$78.6 million, representing a year-over-year decrease of 6.7% from US$84.2 million in the same period one year ago and a quarter-over-quarter increase of 13.8% from US$69.0 million in the previous quarter. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to decreases in revenues from traditional media in airports and digital TV screens on airplanes, which were primarily caused by AirMedia's termination of the operations of certain unprofitable or low-margin contracts. The quarter-over-quarter increase was primarily due to increases in revenues from most product lines other than other media.

Revenues from digital frames in airports

Revenues from digital frames in airports for the fourth quarter of 2013 increased by 11.5% year-over-year and by 15.6% quarter-over-quarter to US$45.4 million. The year-over-year increase was primarily 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 additional revenues from the rapidly growing product line of mega-size LED screens, advertisers' year-end budget flush 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 2013 decreased by 5.6% year-over-year and increased by 41.6% quarter-over-quarter to US$5.1 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 2013 decreased by 41.4% year-over-year and increased by 3.9% quarter-over-quarter to US$4.6 million. AirMedia did not renew its concession rights contract with Air China, which expired on December 31, 2012, but regained some advertising time on Air China's airplanes on August 1, 2013. The year-over-year decrease of revenues from digital TV screens on airplanes was primarily due to the decrease in revenues from digital TV screens on Air China's airplanes. The quarter-over-quarter increase of revenues from digital TV screens on airplanes was primarily due to 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 2013 decreased by 31.8% year-over-year and increased by 7.1% quarter-over-quarter to US$14.2 million. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to AirMedia's termination of certain unprofitable or low-margin contracts. AirMedia decided not to renew the concession rights contracts for most of AirMedia's traditional media in Shenzhen Baoan International Airport at the end of 2012 and the billboards and painted advertisements on the gate bridges of Terminal 3 in Beijing Airport in May and July 2013 after the expiration of the relevant contracts. 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 the gas station media network

Revenues from the gas station media network for the fourth quarter of 2013 decreased by 7.1% year-over-year and increased by 34.7% quarter-over-quarter to US$4.4 million. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to temporary service suspension caused by the gap between the retirement of the old scrolling light boxes and the full operation of the replacing new LED screens in gas stations across many cities. The quarter-over-quarter increase was primarily due to advertisers' strong demand for AirMedia's already-installed LED screens in gas stations, as well as advertisers' year-end budget flush and a seasonally strong quarter in the fourth quarter.

AirMedia's LED screens in gas stations change pictures every 10 seconds and rotate in 3-minute cycles, which provides 18 time slots available for sale. As of February 28, 2014, AirMedia operated LED screens in 300 gas stations in six cities, compared to 240 LED screens in six cities as of December 31, 2013.

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 2013 decreased by 16.7% year-over-year and by 15.2% quarter-over-quarter to US$2.1 million. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to the expiration of the contracts for some locations in November and December 2012, which generated some revenues in the fourth quarter of 2012. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was due to a seasonally weak quarter for AirMeida's other media whose main advertisers are high-end real estate. 

Business tax and other sales tax

Business tax and other sales tax for the fourth quarter of 2013 were US$1.4 million, compared to US$1.5 million in the same period one year ago and US$976,000 in the previous quarter.

Net revenues

Net revenues for the fourth quarter of 2013 reached US$77.2 million, representing a year-over-year decrease of 6.6% from US$82.6 million in the same period one year ago and a quarter-over-quarter increase of 13.4% from US$68.1 million in the previous quarter.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues for the fourth quarter of 2013 was US$65.0 million, which remained relatively unchanged from the same period one year ago and reflected a quarter-over-quarter increase of 9.1% from US$59.5 million in the previous quarter. The quarter-over-quarter increase was primarily due to higher concession fees and higher agency fees for third-party advertising agencies in the fourth quarter of 2013. Cost of revenues as a percentage of net revenues in the fourth quarter of 2013 was 84.1%, up from 79.1% in the same period one year ago and down from 87.4% 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 2013 increased by 1.1% year-over-year and by 6.7% quarter-over-quarter to US$45.6 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 2013 was 59.1%, increasing from 54.6% in the same period one year ago and decreasing from 62.8% 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. The quarter-over-quarter decrease of concession fees as a percentage of net revenues was primarily due to the fact that net revenues increased faster than concession fees in the fourth quarter of 2013.

Gross Profit

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2013 decreased by 28.9% year-over-year and increased by 43.5% quarter-over-quarter to US$12.3 million.

Gross profit as a percentage of net revenues for the fourth quarter of 2013 was 15.9%, compared to 20.9% in the same period one year ago and 12.6% in the previous quarter. The year-over-year decrease in gross profit as a percentage of net revenues was primarily due to the fact that net revenues decreased faster than cost of revenues. The quarter-over-quarter increase in gross profit as a percentage of net revenues was primarily due to the fact that net revenues increased faster than cost of revenues.

The year-over-year decrease in share-based compensation expenses was primarily due to the ending of the vesting period of stock options granted on July 10, 2009.

This represented a year-over-year increase of 3.3% from US$5.3 million and a quarter-over-quarter decrease of 2.4% from US$5.6 million in the previous quarter. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to higher professional fees, higher expenses of office and equipments, and higher travel expenses.

General and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter of 2013 were US$8.8 million, including share-based compensation expenses of US$425,000.

Total revenues for the fiscal year 2013 were US$276.5 million, representing a year-over-year decrease of 5.6% from US$293.0 million in fiscal year 2012. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to the decreases in revenues from traditional media in airports, digital TV screens on airplanes, other media, and gas station media network, which were partially offset by increases in revenues from digital frames in airports, other revenues in air travel, and digital TV screens in airports.

Revenues from digital frames in airports

Revenues from digital frames in airports for fiscal year 2013 increased by 10.9% year-over-year to US$152.3 million from US$137.3 million in fiscal year 2012 primarily due to the additional revenues from the rapidly growing product line of mega-size LED screens.

Revenues from digital TV screens in airports

Revenues from digital TV screens in airports for fiscal year 2013 increased by 2.8% year-over-year to US$14.1 million due to Company's continued sales efforts.

Revenues from digital TV screens on airplanes

Revenues from digital TV screens on airplanes for fiscal year 2013 decreased by 39.3% year-over-year to US$16.2 million primarily due to the decrease in revenues from digital TV screens on Air China's airplanes. AirMedia did not renew its concession rights contract with Air China, which expired on December 31, 2012, but regained some advertising time on Air China's airplanes on August 1, 2013.

Revenues from traditional media in airports

Revenues from traditional media in airports for fiscal year 2013 decreased by 22.3% year-over-year to US$64.8 million. The year-over-year decrease was primarily due to AirMedia's decision not to renew certain unprofitable or low-margin contracts after expiration.  

Revenues from the gas station media network

Revenues from the gas station media network for fiscal year 2013 decreased by 10.5% year-over-year to US$12.7 million due to the temporary service suspension caused by the gap between the retirement of the old scrolling light boxes and the full operation of the replacing new LED screens in gas stations across many cities.

Revenues from other media

Revenues from other media were primarily revenues contributed by 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 2013 decreased by 30.2% year-over-year to US$7.1 million due to the expiration of the contracts for some locations in November and December 2012.

Business tax and other sales tax

Business tax and other sales tax for fiscal year 2013 was US$4.3 million, representing a year-over-year decrease of 31.7% from US$6.2 million in fiscal year 2012 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. Revenues from most of the Company's product lines booked in total revenues were already net revenues after deducting VAT in fiscal year 2013. The majority of the Company's business tax and other sales tax in fiscal year 2013 were other sales tax.

Net revenues for fiscal year 2013 were US$272.3 million, representing a year-over-year decrease of 5.0% from US$286.7 million in fiscal year 2012.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues for fiscal year 2013 was US$244.7 million, representing a year-over-year decrease of 2.4% from US$250.6 million in fiscal year 2012, primarily due to a decrease in agency fees for third-party advertising agencies. Cost of revenues as a percentage of net revenues in fiscal year 2013 increased to 89.9% from 87.4% in fiscal year 2012.

Concession fees for fiscal year 2013 were US$181.0 million, representing a year-over-year increase of 1.7% from US$178.0 million in fiscal year 2012, primarily due to new signed and renewed concession contracts entered into in 2013, which were partially offset by a decrease in concession fees of certain unprofitable or low-margin contracts which AirMedia's didn't renew after expiration. Concession fees as a percentage of net revenues in fiscal year 2013 increased to 66.5% from 62.1% in fiscal year 2012 primarily due to the fact that concession fees increased while net revenues decreased in 2013.

Gross Profit

Gross profit for fiscal year 2013 was US$27.6 million, representing a year-over-year decrease of 23.6% from US$36.1 million in fiscal year 2012.

Gross profit as a percentage of net revenues for fiscal year 2013 was 10.1%, down from 12.6% in fiscal year 2012. The decrease in gross profit as a percentage of net revenues was primarily due to the fact that net revenues decreased faster than cost of revenues.

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.
