China Mass Media Reports Third Quarter 2011 Unaudited Financial Results

21 Nov, 2011, 07:31 ET from China Mass Media Corp.

BEIJING, Nov. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Mass Media Corp. ("China Mass Media" or the "Company") (NYSE: CMM), a leading television advertising company in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011.

Third Quarter 2011 Highlights:

  • Total net revenues were RMB57.5 million (US$9.0 million), an increase of 5.1% from the third quarter of 2010 and an increase of 11.3% from the second quarter of 2011.
  • Operating income was RMB16.9 million (US$2.6 million), an increase of 35.1% from RMB12.5 million in the third quarter of 2010 and an increase of 17.7% from the second quarter of 2011.
  • Net income was RMB14.0 million (US$2.2 million), an increase of 117.8% from RMB6.43 million in the third quarter of 2010 and an increase of 24.8% from the second quarter of 2011.
  • Net cash outflows from operating activities were RMB158.3 million (US$24.8 million), compared to RMB54.5 million net cash inflows in the third quarter of 2010 and RMB12.8 million net cash outflows in the second quarter of 2011.

Mr. Shengcheng Wang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of China Mass Media, commented, "Our third quarter revenue and net profit increased from both the second quarter of 2011 and the third quarter of 2010, primarily due to receiving RMB14.7 million (US$2.3 million) as service fee from China Central Television ('CCTV') for the Company's services in advertising and promotional activities in connection with the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008. Because of CCTV's slow internal examination and approval procedures, this service fee was paid to us in the third quarter of 2011.

"Our third quarter revenues from advertising agency services decreased from the previous quarter as well as from the third quarter of 2010. Although the sales rates increased significantly from the third quarter of 2010, sales revenues declined compared with the previous quarter and the third quarter of 2010, as a result of more discounts given to clients in light of fierce market competition and increasing media costs. July and August are weak seasons for the traditional advertising market.  However, the market picked up in September and customer demands for advertising increased significantly. We were pleased that advertising time slots of our 'Periodic China News Package' on CCTV-4 were all sold out in September.  

"Our advertising production services have been showing good momentum. In the third quarter we successfully produced a number of commercials for clients, including Xiwang Sugar and the Beijing Economic and Technological Development Zone Management Committee. Still, third quarter revenues from advertising and creative production decreased compared with the previous quarter and the third quarter of 2010 because of the lower average price charged to customers during the quarter. In addition, due to program changes at CCTV in June 2011, our contracts with CCTV for the production of the TV program 'Guang Er Gao Zhi' was terminated.  Thus, beginning with the third quarter, the Company no longer generates revenue from sponsorship services. This led to the decline in revenues compared with the previous quarter and the third quarter of 2010.

"In addition to advertising agency services, content production has become an important component of our development strategy. In the third quarter, we had achieved a number of new developments in our new film and TV production business. The Company completed the scripts of two TV plays, and entered into filming stages. We expect the filming of one of the plays to be completed by the end of this year, and the post-production to be completed by the first quarter of 2012. We are actively in discussion with major television stations regarding the distribution plans.

"Television is still considered by advertisers to be the best and largest media platform in China. Following the recently closed 2012 Annual Prime Time Advertising Resources Auction at CCTV, the sales of these advertising resources reached a record of RMB14.26 billion, a 12.5% increase from the RMB12.67 billion in the previous year.  The alcohol, finance and food and beverage industries were the top three contributors.  We actively participated in this auction as the agent for Sanyo Electric, enlisting our professional services to help them obtain the best resources. We plan to continue our advertising agency services for the 'Periodic China News Package' on CCTV-4 in 2012. In addition, we recently acquired a 60-second time slot in connection with the 'All Day Classic Package' on CCTV-8 starting from 2012. CCTV-8 is the only national TV drama series channel in China. It ranks third among all channels in China in terms of audience share in 2009 according to 2010 China TV & Radio Yearbook, and is ideal for advertising family consumer products. The "All Day Classic Package" broadcasts 14 times per day, and covers all time slots from morning to evening on CCTV-8, which had a cumulative rating of 2.69% according to our own statistics in the first three quarters of 2011. In the following months, we will focus on presales of 2012 advertising resources to lock-in clients in advance.

"Net cash outflows in the third quarter were largely due to the settling of outstanding payables to CCTV in relation to the media fees for the 'Daytime Advertising Package' and 'Television Guide Package' for the year ended December 31, 2009."

Julie Sun, our Chief Financial Officer, added, "The Company declared a special cash dividend of US$0.07667 per share on the Company's ordinary shares on October 28, 2011.  For further details of the special cash dividend distribution, please see the Company's announcement published on October 28, 2011.  As a result of this special cash dividend distribution, an unrecognized withholding tax of over RMB10 million (US$1.6 million) will be provided in our fourth quarter, which will have a significant adverse effect to our fourth quarter financial results."

Third Quarter 2011 Financial Results

Revenues

Revenues from advertising agency services were RMB43.4 million (US$6.8 million), including RMB3.5 million (US$0.55 million) of revenue resulting from a reduction of media fees for a program that we recognize revenue on a net basis, in the third quarter of 2011, a decrease of 7.0 % from RMB46.6 million in the third quarter of 2010, and a decrease of 5.1% from RMB45.7 million in the second quarter of 2011. Due to continued fierce price competition, revenues from the Company's "Daytime Advertising Package" and "Television Guide Package" decreased as compared to the previous quarter. The Company's "Periodic China News Package" on CCTV-4 registered a noticeable increase in sales as compared to the previous quarter. Especially in September, all one-minute advertising time slots were sold out.  Nevertheless, the total revenues from advertising agency services decreased slightly from the second quarter of 2011. The decrease in revenues compared with the third quarter of last year was mainly due to the decrease in revenues relating to the "Periodic China News Package", as the time slots available for sale from that program decreased from 90 seconds in 2010 to 60 seconds in 2011.

Revenues from special event services were RMB14.7 million (US$2.3 million) in the third quarter of 2011, being the service fee paid by CCTV for the Company's services in advertising and promotional activities for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games. We recognized this revenue when the Company received payment from CCTV during the quarter.  No special event services revenue were recognized in the third quarter of 2010 and in the previous quarter of 2011.

Revenues from production and sponsorship services were RMB3.3 million (US$0.5 million) in the third quarter of 2011, a decrease of 69.2% from RMB10.7 million in the third quarter of 2010, and a decrease of 65.0% from RMB9.4 million in the second quarter of 2011. During the third quarter of 2011, the Company successfully produced a number of commercials for clients such as Xiwang Sugar and Beijing Economic and Technological Development Zone Management Committee. As of July 1, 2011, the Company ceased to be the producer of the "Guang Er Gao Zhi" program due to CCTV program changes. Revenues from sponsorship service in relation to the "Guang Er Gao Zhi" program amounted to RMB5.4 million and RMB4.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and September 30, 2010 respectively. Overall, revenues from production and sponsorship services decreased significantly on both a year-over-year and sequential basis.

Operating costs and expenses

Cost of revenues was RMB27.0 million (US$4.2 million) in the third quarter of 2011, a decrease of 15.7 % from RMB32.0 million in the third quarter of 2010 and an increase of 10.2% from RMB24.5 million in the second quarter of 2011. The significant decrease in cost of revenues from the third quarter of 2010 was because time slots available on the Company's "Periodic China News Package" on CCTV-4 decreased from 90 seconds in 2010 to 60 seconds in 2011. The increase of cost of revenue compared with the second quarter of 2011 was mainly because in the second quarter of 2011, the Company received a RMB4.1 million refund from CCTV for the purchase price relating to the advertisements that CCTV-4 failed to broadcast in 2010, and such refund was used to offset the relevant media costs of the "Periodic China News Package". Thus the cost of revenues in the second quarter was lower as a result.

Sales and marketing expenses were RMB6.7 million (US$1.1 million) in the third quarter of 2011, an increase of 87.3% from RMB3.6 million in the third quarter of 2010 and an increase of 59.5% from RMB4.2 million in the second quarter of 2011. The increase compared with the third quarter of 2010 and the previous quarter was mainly due to the increase in salary. The Company extended a bonus of RMB2.0 million to our Chief Executive Officer for his contribution in the Special Event Services.

General and administrative expenses were RMB7.0 million (US$1.1 million) in the third quarter of 2011, an increase of 3.8% compared to the RMB6.7 million in the third quarter of 2010 and a decrease of 19.8% from RMB8.7 million in the second quarter of 2011. The increase compared with the third quarter of 2010 was mainly due to the effect of a write-back of bad debt provision in the third quarter of 2010.  The decrease compared with the previous quarter was mainly because of the Company's payment of RMB2.5 million in fees for sponsors, lawyers and auditors in the previous quarter in connection with the Company's efforts to list on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

Operating income, as a result of the foregoing factors, was RMB16.9 million (US$2.6 million) in the third quarter of 2011, an increase of 35.1% from RMB12.5 million in the third quarter of 2010 and an increase of 17.7% from RMB14.3 million in the second quarter of 2011. The Company's operating margin was 22.8%, 27.7% and 29.3% for the quarters ended September 30, 2010, June 30, 2011 and September 30, 2011, respectively.

Other expenses included an exchange loss of RMB0.8 million (US$0.1 million) in the third quarter of 2011. As the Company converted its overseas US dollar deposits to Renminbi deposits at the end of the first quarter, the exchange loss arising from the appreciation of the Renminbi against the US dollar decreased significantly as compared to the exchange loss of RMB3.3 million in the third quarter of 2010. Other expenses are relatively stable as compared with the second quarter of 2011.

Income tax expense was RMB7.0 million (US$1.1 million) in the third quarter of 2011, an increase of 57.3% from RMB4.5 million in the third quarter of 2010, and an increase of 21.2% from RMB5.8 million in the second quarter of 2011. The Company's effective tax rate was 41%, 34.0% and 33.4% for the quarters ended September 30, 2010, June 30, 2011 and September 30, 2011, respectively. The effective tax rate for the third quarter of 2011 was higher than the PRC statutory tax rate mainly because the intermediary service expenses incurred by offshore companies and exchange losses of RMB0.8 million incurred by the appreciation of the Renminbi against the US dollar were not deductible for PRC tax purposes.

Effective tax rate for the third quarter of 2011 was higher than the PRC Statutory tax rate was also attributable to the 10% withholding tax being accrued for the 30% earnings earned in PRC.  As we declared a special cash dividend in the fourth quarter of 2011, we need to accrue additional withholding tax in the fourth quarter of 2011 to make the dividend payments.

Net income was RMB14.0 million (US$2.2 million) in the third quarter of 2011, an increase of 117.8% from net income of RMB6.4 million in the third quarter of 2010 and an increase of 24.8% from RMB11.2 million in net income in the second quarter of 2011. The Company's net margin was 11.8%, 21.7% and 24.4% for the quarters ended September 30, 2010, June 30, 2011 and September 30, 2011, respectively.

Basic and diluted earnings per ADS for the third quarter of 2011 were RMB0.56 (US$0.09), compared with basic and diluted earnings per ADS of RMB0.24 for the third quarter of 2010 and RMB0.44 for the second quarter of 2011. Each ADS represents 30 ordinary shares of the Company as of September 30, 2011.

Business Outlook

The Company currently expects to generate total net revenues of between RMB48 million and RMB53 million for the fourth quarter of 2011. The expected range of net revenues represents a potential decrease of 36.7% to 30.1% compared with the fourth quarter of 2010 due to continuous price competition. This forecast reflects the Company's current and preliminary estimate, which is subject to change.

Non-GAAP Disclosure

In addition to the unaudited consolidated financial information presented in accordance with US GAAP, management uses a non-GAAP measure of net income excluding non-cash share-based compensation. Company management believes excluding the share-based compensation expenses from non-GAAP financial measures is useful for the investors' understanding of overall current financial performance. Nevertheless, the limitation of using non-GAAP financial measures excluding share-based compensation expenses is that share-based compensation expenses have been and will continue to be a significant recurring expense in the Company's business.

The presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with US GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables captioned "Reconciliations of unaudited non-GAAP results of operations measures to the nearest comparable GAAP measures" set forth below, which shall be read in conjunction with the preceding financial information presented in accordance with US GAAP.

Non-GAAP Disclosure

In addition to the unaudited consolidated financial information presented in accordance with US GAAP, management uses a non-GAAP measure of net income excluding non-cash share-based compensation. Company management believes excluding the share-based compensation expenses from non-GAAP financial measures is useful for the investors' understanding of overall current financial performance. Nevertheless, the limitation of using non-GAAP financial measures excluding share-based compensation expenses is that share-based compensation expenses have been and will continue to be a significant recurring expense in the Company's business.

The presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with US GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables captioned "Reconciliations of unaudited non-GAAP results of operations measures to the nearest comparable GAAP measures" set forth above, which shall be read in conjunction with the preceding financial information presented in accordance with US GAAP.
