Outerwall Inc. Announces 2014 Second Quarter Results Reports Solid Profitability and Strong Operating and Free Cash Flow; Updates Full-Year 2014 Guidance

"Our 2014 second quarter results reflect our ability to leverage our core capabilities of operating and scaling automated retail businesses profitably despite the impact of a weak content release schedule on our Redbox business," said J. Scott Di Valerio, Outerwall's chief executive officer. "June represented the lowest monthly theatrical box office in Redbox history. Box office in June was down 83 percent from June 2013 as only four titles were released during the month. While the release schedule was not compelling for consumers during the quarter, consumer engagement with Redbox remained strong as demonstrated by a significant year-over-year increase in e-mail open rates, e-mail subscribers and Redbox app downloads.

"Coinstar produced solid results in the quarter, with revenue, segment operating income and segment operating margin increasing year-over-year," Di Valerio added. "We also continued to scale ecoATM. We finalized kiosk installation agreements with retail partners in the mass merchant and grocery channels. Overall, we delivered solid results during the quarter despite external challenges and believe we are well-positioned to deliver value to our consumers, retail partners and shareholders."

Highlights from the second quarter of 2014 include:

  • Managed business for profitability and operating cash flow despite a weak release schedule that impacted Redbox revenue
  • Generated $36.8 million in free cash flow in the quarter, bringing the year-to-date total to $104.4 million
  • Repurchased approximately $50.0 million or approximately 712,000 shares of common stock during the quarter
  • Completed a $300 million debt offering and amended and extended the company's credit facility, effectively locking in attractive interest rates, extending debt maturities and maintaining financial flexibility

"We produced solid results in the second quarter of 2014 with consolidated revenues and profitability in-line with our expectations despite weaker than expected performance from our Redbox business. In addition, we generated strong cash flow in the quarter and repurchased $50 million of our common stock, reflecting our commitment to returning cash to shareholders," said Galen C. Smith, chief financial officer of Outerwall.

For year-over-year comparison purposes, the company noted the following:

  • In the second quarter of 2013, the company implemented a new accounting methodology for amortizing its content library that was prospectively applied. Had this new methodology been applied retrospectively, Redbox content costs, which are included in direct operating expenses, would have been $29.4 million higher on a pretax basis in the second quarter of 2013 as content costs would have shifted from prior periods to the second quarter of 2013.
  • In the second quarter of 2013, the company recognized a $17.8 million tax benefit as a result of selling several thousand NCR kiosks through a wholly owned subsidiary.

CONSOLIDATED RESULTS

Consolidated revenue for the second quarter of 2014 decreased $3.9 million, or 0.7% to $549.2 million compared with $553.1 million for the second quarter of 2013. The year-over-year decline in consolidated revenue was primarily due to the impact of a weak content release schedule on the Redbox business, partially offset by an increase in revenue from the Coinstar segment and the inclusion of the ecoATM business that was acquired in late July 2013 and is included in the company's New Ventures segment.

Operating income for the second quarter of 2014 was $47.9 million and operating margin was 8.7% compared with operating income of $76.1 million and operating margin of 13.8% in the second quarter of 2013. The year-over-year decrease in both the operating income and margin was primarily due to the impact of a weak content release schedule on Redbox revenue and the change in the content amortization accounting methodology that occurred in the second quarter of 2013 as noted above. Had the updated amortization accounting methodology been in effect prior to the second quarter of 2013, operating income and operating margin would have been $46.7 million and 8.4%, respectively, in the second quarter of 2013.

Income from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2014 was $21.8 million, or $1.08 earnings per diluted share from continuing operations, compared with $50.4 million, or $1.77 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2013. The year-over-year decrease in income from continuing operations was primarily due to lower revenues and the impact of the change in the amortization accounting methodology that was implemented in the second quarter of 2013. Had this methodology been in effect prior to the second quarter of 2013, income from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2013 would have been $32.2 million.

Core adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the second quarter of 2014 was $110.3 million, compared with $129.9 million in the second quarter of 2013. The year-over-year decline was primarily due to lower segment operating income at Redbox and higher segment operating losses in New Ventures as the company continued to invest as it scales its ecoATM business. The declines were partially offset by increased Coinstar segment operating income. Had the updated amortization accounting methodology been in effect prior to the second quarter of 2013, core adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations in the second quarter of 2013 would have been $100.5 million.

Core diluted earnings per share from continuing operations in the second quarter of 2014 were $1.42 compared with $2.04 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2013. The company also noted that had the updated amortization accounting methodology been in effect prior to the second quarter of 2013, core diluted earnings per share from continuing operations in the second quarter of 2013 would have been lower by $0.64.

Net cash provided by operating activities in the second quarter of 2014 was $62.8 million compared with $30.2 million in the second quarter of 2013. The increase was primarily due to an increase in net operating cash inflows from changes in working capital and lower deferred income taxes.

Cash capital expenditures for the second quarter of 2014 were $26.1 million compared with $36.1 million in the second quarter of 2013.

Free cash flow for the second quarter of 2014 was $36.8 million, compared with negative $5.9 million in the second quarter of 2013, primarily driven by higher net operating cash flow and lower capital expenditures.

SEGMENT RESULTS

Redbox

Redbox segment revenue in the second quarter of 2014 was $445.5 million compared with $478.5 million in the second quarter of 2013. Redbox generated approximately 169.3 million rentals in the quarter, a decrease of 9.3% compared with the second quarter of 2013, on a considerably weaker release schedule than the year ago period. A key driver of Redbox performance is the availability of new release content, including the strength of titles and the release schedule. Total box office[1] in the second quarter 2014 was 37.5% lower than the second quarter of 2013. The impact of overall weaker releases in the second quarter of 2014 was further compounded by the scarcity of strong content available for rent in June. Compared with June 2013, the box office in June 2014 was 83.0% lower, and there were only four titles released during the month.

Redbox same store sales decreased 7.8% in the second quarter of 2014 compared with a decrease of 6.8% in the second quarter of 2013, primarily due to the impact of a weak content release slate and the timing of releases throughout the quarter. The company noted, however, that consumer engagement remained strong and grew in the second quarter of 2014 compared with the second quarter of 2013, with e-mail subscribers and Redbox app downloads growing by more than 20%. In addition, e-mail open rates, a measure of consumer interest in the product offering, increased 30% from the second quarter of 2013.

Net revenue per rental was $2.63, an increase of $0.07, or 2.7%, from the second quarter of 2013. The increase was primarily the result of a higher percentage of Blu-ray rentals as a percent of total rentals, a 29.1% reduction in promotional spend as Redbox continued its focus on increasing promotional efficiency through customer-specific offerings, and continued stabilization in single night rentals.

Redbox segment operating income in the second quarter of 2014 was $83.5 million compared with $107.2 million in the second quarter of 2013. Segment operating margin was 18.7% in the second quarter of 2014 compared with 22.4% in the second quarter of 2013, primarily due to the impact of a weak release schedule. Segment operating income and margin in the second quarter 2013 would have been $77.8 million and 16.3%, respectively, had the updated amortization accounting methodology been in effect prior to the second quarter of 2013.

Coinstar

Coinstar segment revenue was $79.9 million, an increase of 7.2%, compared with $74.5 million in the second quarter of 2013. Same store sales grew 6.7% in the second quarter of 2014 compared with a decrease of 1.1% in the second quarter of 2013 primarily due to the price increase for all U.S. grocery retail locations for the coin voucher product that was implemented on October 1, 2013. The average transaction size in the second quarter of 2014 increased $0.14 to $41.32 from the second quarter of 2013.

Coinstar segment operating income was $30.8 million, an increase of 21.1% compared with the second quarter of 2013, and Coinstar segment operating margin was 38.6%, an increase of 450 basis points compared with the second quarter of 2013. Both increases were primarily the result of the U.S. price increase, higher volume in the U.K. due to an increase in the U.K. kiosk base, lower research and development expenses, and cost efficiencies across the Coinstar field organization.

New Ventures

New Ventures segment revenue was $23.8 million in the second quarter of 2014, primarily due to the inclusion of the ecoATM business that was acquired in July 2013. New Ventures segment operating loss of $6.4 million in the second quarter of 2014 was primarily due to investments in ecoATM, including the addition of approximately 70 net new ecoATM kiosks, as business expands in the mass merchant and grocery channels. At June 30, 2014, New Ventures had approximately 1,010 kiosks installed, including approximately 980 ecoATM kiosks.

In the ecoATM business, the number of devices collected and the value per device increased in the second quarter of 2014 compared with the first quarter of 2014, primarily as a result of a higher installed kiosk base, greater consumer awareness, competitive pricing and kiosk enhancements.

During 2013, the company discontinued four new venture concepts: Orango, Rubi, Crisp Market and Star Studio ventures. These concepts are classified as discontinued operations for all periods presented.

SHARE REPURCHASES AND CAPITAL STRUCTURE

During the second quarter of 2014, the company completed the sale of $300 million of 5.875% senior unsecured notes due 2021 and amended and extended its senior secured credit facility consisting of a $150 million amortizing term loan and a $600 million revolving line of credit. The maturity of the credit facility was extended from July 2016 to June 2019.

The company repurchased approximately $50.0 million of its common stock, representing approximately 712,000 shares at an average price of $70.27 per share during the second quarter of 2014. At June 30, 2014, there was approximately $233.3 million in authority remaining under the company's stock repurchase authorization.

The company's net leverage ratio[2] was 2.00x at June 30, 2014. The company continues to expect a net leverage ratio in the range of 1.75x to 2.25x in 2014.

GUIDANCE

A comprehensive 2014 guidance table is included in the "Earnings Release Schedules" section at the end of this release. Beginning in 2015, Outerwall will provide annual guidance only. The company believes annual guidance is a more relevant measurement of the business given its stage of growth, and full-year results capture the varying seasonal patterns of each of its businesses.

Guidance for the third quarter and full-year 2014 reflects lower than expected second quarter 2014 revenue, a lower box office for the second half of this year compared with the company's previous expectations, changes in the timing of the release schedule, increased interest expense as a result of the new debt issued in June, the repurchase of common stock in the second quarter of 2014 and the delayed timing of ecoATM kiosk installs.

For the 2014 third quarter, the company expects:

  • Consolidated revenue between $535 million and $565 million;
  • Core adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations between $100 million and $115 million;
  • Core diluted EPS from continuing operations between $0.99 and $1.29 on a fully diluted basis; and
  • Average diluted shares outstanding between 19.7 million and 19.8 million[3].

For the full-year 2014, the company expects:

  • Consolidated revenue between $2.254 billion and $2.334 billion;
  • Core adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations between $450 million and $490 million;
  • Core diluted EPS from continuing operations between $5.78 and $6.28 on a fully diluted basis;
  • Free cash flow between $200 million and $240 million; and
  • Average diluted shares outstanding between 20.9 million and 21.0 million3.

APPENDIX A

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Non-GAAP measures may be provided as a complement to results provided in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP").

We use the following non-GAAP financial measures to evaluate our financial results:

  • Core adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations;
  • Core diluted earnings per share ("EPS") from continuing operations;
  • Free cash flow; and
  • Net debt and net leverage ratio.

These measures, the definitions of which are presented below, are non-GAAP because they exclude certain amounts which are included in the most directly comparable measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. Our non-GAAP financial measures are not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our GAAP financial measures and may not be comparable with similarly titled measures of other companies.

Core and Non-Core Results

We distinguish our core activities, those associated with our primary operations which we directly control, from non-core activities. Non-core activities are primarily nonrecurring events or events we do not directly control. Our non-core adjustments include i) restructuring costs associated with actions to reduce costs in our continuing operations primarily through workforce reductions across the Company, ii) compensation expense for rights to receive cash issued in conjunction with our acquisition of ecoATM and attributable to post-combination services as they are fixed amount acquisition related awards and not indicative of the directly controllable future business results, iii) income or loss from equity method investments, which represents our share of income or loss from entities we do not consolidate or control, and iv) a tax benefit related to a net operating loss adjustment ("Non-Core Adjustments").

We believe investors should consider our core results because they are more indicative of our ongoing performance and trends, are more consistent with how management evaluates our operational results and trends, provide meaningful supplemental information to investors through the exclusion of certain expenses which are either non-recurring or may not be indicative of our directly controllable business operating results, allow for greater transparency in assessing our performance, help investors better analyze the results of our business and assist in forecasting future periods.

Core Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations

Our non-GAAP financial measure core adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations is defined as earnings from continuing operations before depreciation, amortization and other; interest expense, net; income taxes; share-based payments expense; and Non-Core Adjustments.

A reconciliation of core adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations to net income from continuing operations, the most comparable GAAP financial measure, is presented in the following table:

Free Cash Flow

Our non-GAAP financial measure free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by operating activities after capital expenditures. We believe free cash flow is an important non-GAAP measure as it provides additional information to users of the financial statements regarding our ability to service, incur or pay down indebtedness and repurchase our securities.

A reconciliation of free cash flow to net cash provided by operating activities, the most comparable GAAP financial measure, is presented in the following table:

Net Debt and Net Leverage Ratio

Our non-GAAP financial measure net debt is defined as the total face value of outstanding debt, including capital leases, less cash and cash equivalents held in financial institutions domestically. Our non-GAAP financial measure net leverage ratio is defined as net debt divided by core adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations for the last twelve months (LTM). We believe net debt and net leverage ratio are important non-GAAP measures because they:

  • are used to assess the degree of leverage by management;
  • provide additional information to users of the financial statements regarding our ability to service, incur or pay down indebtedness and repurchase our securities as well as additional information about our capital structure; and
  • are reported quarterly to support covenant compliance under our credit agreement.

A reconciliation of net debt to total outstanding debt including capital leases, the most comparable GAAP financial measure, is presented in the following table:
