(1) Operating expenses include direct operating, selling, general and administrative expenses. Included in operating expenses are $0.3 million of non-cash stock-based compensation for each of the three-month periods ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, and $0.8 million and $0.6 million of non-cash stock-based compensation for the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. Operating expenses do not include corporate expenses, depreciation and amortization, impairment charge, gain (loss) on sale of assets, gain (loss) on debt extinguishment and other income (loss).


(2) Corporate expenses include $1.0 million and $0.5 million of non-cash stock-based compensation for the three-month periods ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $2.7 million and $1.1 million of non-cash stock-based compensation for the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.


(3) Consolidated adjusted EBITDA means net income (loss) plus gain (loss) on sale of assets, depreciation and amortization, non-cash impairment charge, non-cash stock-based compensation included in operating and corporate expenses, net interest expense, other income (loss), gain (loss) on debt extinguishment, income tax (expense) benefit, equity in net income (loss) of nonconsolidated affiliate, non-cash losses and syndication programming amortization less syndication programming payments. We use the term consolidated adjusted EBITDA because that measure is defined in our credit facility and does not include gain (loss) on sale of assets, depreciation and amortization, non-cash impairment charge, non-cash stock-based compensation, net interest expense, other income (loss), gain (loss) on debt extinguishment, income tax (expense) benefit, equity in net income (loss) of nonconsolidated affiliate, non-cash losses and syndication programming amortization and does include syndication programming payments. While many in the financial community and we consider consolidated adjusted EBITDA to be important, it should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for or superior to, other measures of liquidity and financial performance prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, such as cash flows from operating activities, operating income and net income. As consolidated adjusted EBITDA excludes non-cash gain (loss) on sale of assets, non-cash depreciation and amortization, non-cash impairment charge, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, net interest expense, other income (loss), gain (loss) on debt extinguishment, income tax (expense) benefit, equity in net income (loss) of nonconsolidated affiliate, non-cash losses and syndication programming amortization and includes syndication programming payments, consolidated adjusted EBITDA has certain limitations because it excludes and includes several important non-cash financial line items. Therefore, we consider both non-GAAP and GAAP measures when evaluating our business. Consolidated adjusted EBITDA is also used to make executive compensation decisions.


(4) Free cash flow is defined as consolidated adjusted EBITDA less cash paid for income taxes, net interest expense, and capital expenditures. Net interest expense is defined as interest expense, less non-cash interest expense relating to amortization of debt finance costs, less non-cash interest expense relating to discount amortization on our $324 million aggregate principal amount of 8.750% senior secured first lien notes (the "Notes"), and less interest income. Free cash flow per share is defined as free cash flow divided by the basic or diluted weighted average common shares outstanding.

 

Commenting on the Company's earnings results, Walter F. Ulloa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "During the third quarter, we recorded continued growth in core advertising revenue (excluding retransmission consent revenue and political advertising revenue) as both our television and radio segments outperformed their respective industry averages. Our improved core revenue performance was offset by decreased political revenue, which benefited from the presidential election last year, and was not material in 2013. As a result, net revenue was off modestly in the quarter; however, we improved our free cash flow over the third quarter of 2012 as we benefited from the successful refinancing of our debt. Our audience shares remain strong in the nation's most densely populated Hispanic markets, and we believe we are well positioned to benefit as the U.S. Hispanic market continues to expand and advertisers increasingly recognize the importance of reaching our target audience."

(1) Operating expenses and corporate expenses are defined on page 1.

 

Net revenue decreased to $57.8 million for the three-month period ended September 30, 2013 from $58.5 million for the three-month period ended September 30, 2012, a decrease of $0.7 million. Of the overall decrease, $1.2 million was generated by our television segment and was primarily attributable to a decrease in political advertising revenue, which was not material in 2013, partially offset by increases in local advertising revenue and retransmission consent revenue.  This decrease was partially offset by a $0.5 million increase that was generated by our radio segment and was primarily attributable to an increase in local advertising revenue, partially offset by a decrease in political advertising revenue, which was not material in 2013.

Operating expenses increased to $34.0 million for the three-month period ended September 30, 2013 from $32.9 million for the three-month period ended September 30, 2012, an increase of $1.1 million. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in salary expense and an increase in expenses associated with the increase in local advertising revenue.

Corporate expenses increased to $5.0 million for the three-month period ended September 30, 2013 from $4.5 million for the three-month period ended September 30, 2012, an increase of $0.5 million. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in non-cash stock-based compensation expense.

During the three-month period ended September 30, 2013, we recorded a loss on debt extinguishment of $29.4 million related to the premium associated with the redemption of our Notes, the unamortized bond discount, and finance costs.

Of the overall increase, $2.8 million was generated by our television segment and was primarily attributable to increases in local and national advertising revenue, and retransmission consent revenue, partially offset by a decrease in political advertising revenue, which was not material in 2013.  Additionally, $1.5 million of the overall increase was generated by our radio segment and was primarily attributable to increases in local and national advertising revenue, partially offset by a decrease in political advertising revenue, which was not material in 2013.
