Discovery Communications Announces Acquisition of Espresso Education, the Leading Provider of Primary School Digital Education Content in the U.K.

Discovery Communications, Inc. ("Discovery" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: DISCA, DISCB, DISCK) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2014.

David Zaslav, Discovery's President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "The operating strength across Discovery's organic businesses, along with increased contributions from strategic acquisitions, led to sustained financial momentum during the second quarter.  Our persistent focus on building a broad and deep content portfolio to leverage the opportunities across our unique distribution platform is driving viewership and revenue growth worldwide as pay-tv continues to evolve.  Going forward, investing in compelling programing remains a priority as we integrate our recent acquisitions and build new avenues of growth so we can deliver additional long term value to our shareholders."

Second Quarter Results

Second quarter revenues of $1,610 million increased $143 million, or 10%, over the second quarter a year ago, as 23% growth at International Networks was partially offset by a 2% decline at U.S. Networks, primarily due to additional revenues from licensing agreements in the prior year.  Adjusted Operating Income Before Depreciation and Amortization(1) ("OIBDA") increased 6% to $694 million, as International Networks were up 19% while U.S. Networks were down 1% due to the impact of licensing agreements. Excluding the impact of the Eurosport transaction(2), foreign currency fluctuations and licensing agreements, total Company revenues increased 9% and Adjusted OIBDA increased 11%.

Second quarter net income available to Discovery Communications, Inc. of $379 million ($1.09 per diluted share)(3) increased $79 million, or 26%, compared to $300 million ($0.82 per diluted share) for the second quarter a year ago, primarily due to the strong operating performance in the current quarter. The current quarter results also reflect a $31 million gain associated with the sale of HowStuffWorks, a $29 million gain associated with the consolidation of  Eurosport and a $15 million increase in equity earnings.  Adjusted Earnings Per Diluted Share(4) ("Adjusted EPS"), which excludes the impact of the amortization of acquisition related intangible assets, was $1.16 per diluted share in the second quarter of this year compared with $0.91 per diluted share in the same period a year ago.  For the last twelve months, Adjusted EPS was $3.62, up 35% compared with $2.69 in the prior twelve months.

The Company completed its acquisition of a controlling stake in Eurosport International ("Eurosport") in May 2014.  See page 12 for a reconciliation to results excluding Eurosport.

(3)

 

All per share amounts are calculated using Net Income Available to Discovery Communications, Inc. stockholders. See table on page 13 for the reconciliation.

(4)

 

See the full definition of Adjusted Earnings Per Diluted Share on page 5.  Note that the purchase price amortization related to Eurosport is still preliminary and could be revised once finalized.

Free cash flow was $202 million for the second quarter, a decrease of $109 million, or down 35% from the second quarter of 2013, as increased operating performance was more than offset by higher tax payments, as well as higher content and interest payments. Free cash flow is defined as cash provided by operating activities less purchases of property and equipment.

U.S. Networks' revenues in the second quarter of 2014 decreased 2% to $777 million as advertising growth was more than offset by a decline in distribution and other revenue. Advertising revenues increased 5% mainly due to higher pricing.  Distribution revenues decreased 8% as higher rates were more than offset by additional revenues from licensing agreements in the second quarter of 2013.  Other revenues declined by $7 million due to a decrease in content production contracts as well as lower representative fees . Excluding the impact of licensing agreements, distribution revenues grew 6% and total revenues grew 4% over the prior year's quarter. 

Adjusted OIBDA decreased slightly to $466 million, primarily reflecting the impact of licensing agreements in the prior year.  Excluding the impact of licensing agreements, Adjusted OIBDA grew 8% over last year's second quarter, reflecting the 4% revenue growth as well as lower marketing costs.

International Networks' revenues for the second quarter increased 23% to $802 million, as advertising revenues were up 23% and distribution revenues were up 19%.  Excluding Eurosport and foreign currency fluctuations, total revenues were up 14%.  Advertising revenues, excluding Eurosport, were up 17% in local currency terms, primarily due to increased pricing and volume in Western Europe, Latin America and CEEMEA as well as from eight additional days due to the timing of the closing of the SBS Nordic acquisition. Distribution revenues, excluding Eurosport, grew 10% in local currency terms, mainly from increased subscribers and higher rates in Latin America and subscriber growth in CEEMEA and as well as due to the timing of the SBS Nordic acquisition.  Other revenues increased 22% excluding Eurosport and foreign currency fluctuations due to additional revenues from new production studios.

Adjusted OIBDA increased 19% to $297 million on a reported basis and was up 15% excluding Eurosport and foreign currency fluctuations, reflecting the 14% revenue growth partially offset by a 13% increase in operating expenses. The higher operating expenses were primarily due to increased content expense, production costs associated with production studios and personnel costs.

Education revenues for the second quarter increased by $7 million due to higher streaming, licensing and digital textbook revenues as well as additional revenues due to a business combination. Adjusted OIBDA increased by $2 million compared to the second quarter of 2013, as the revenue growth was partially offset by investment in new products as well as integration costs associated with the business combination.

Corporate and Eliminations

Adjusted OIBDA decreased by $3 million compared to the second quarter a year ago, primarily due to the acceleration of certain equity-based compensation expense as well as higher professional fees.

STOCK REPURCHASE

During the quarter, the Company, pursuant to its existing stock repurchase program, repurchased 6.7 million shares of its Series C common stock for an aggregate purchase price of $503 million at an average price of $74.85 per share.  Following the quarter, from July 1, 2014 through July 28, 2014, the Company repurchased 1.4 million shares of its Series C common stock for approximately $109 million.

The Company has repurchased 81.5 million shares of Series C common stock and 2.8 million shares of its Series A common stock under its stock repurchase program to date at an aggregate purchase price of approximately $4.4 billion. In aggregate, including the 17.73 million preferred shares acquired from Advance/Newhouse Programming Partnership ("ANPP") and from Advance Programming Holdings, LLC, the Company has repurchased 24% of its outstanding shares since buyback activity was authorized in 2010.

Under the stock repurchase program, management is authorized to purchase shares of common stock from time to time through open market purchases at prevailing prices or privately negotiated purchases or pursuant to one or more accelerated stock repurchase agreements or other derivative arrangements as permitted by securities laws and other legal requirements and subject to stock price, business and market conditions and other factors.

On May 22, 2014, the Company entered into a share repurchase agreement with ANPP to repurchase their shares of the Company's Series C convertible preferred stock, on a quarterly basis, in proportion to the company's repurchases under its stock repurchase program in a manner that is intended to maintain ANPP's current ownership percentage of the Company.  The first purchases under this agreement are expected to take place in the third quarter of 2014.

OTHER ITEMS 

On May 8, 2014, Discovery and Liberty Global plc ("Liberty Global") announced the formation of a joint venture to acquire All3Media, a leading international production company. The acquisition will be funded by contributions of approximately $153 million from each of Discovery and Liberty Global and additional equity and non-recourse credit facilities raised at All3Media.

On May 20, 2014, the Company announced a special dividend of one share of Series C Common Stock payable on each share of Series A Common Stock, Series B Common Stock or Series C Common Stock outstanding as of July 28, 2014.  The dividend is expected to be paid on August 6, 2014.

On May 30, 2014, the Company completed the previously announced acquisition of a controlling interest in Eurosport International, increasing its stake from 20% to 51% for approximately $349 million, which resulted in a gain of $29 million included in Other Income.

On May 30, 2014, Discovery sold HowStuffWorks for $45 million, which resulted in a pre-tax gain on disposition of $31 million.

FULL YEAR 2014 OUTLOOK

For the full year ending December 31, 2014, Discovery Communications, Inc. expects total revenue between $6.45 billion and $6.525 billion, Adjusted OIBDA between $2.6 billion and $2.65 billion, net income available to Discovery Communications, Inc. between $1.225 billion and $1.275 billion and Adjusted net income available to Discovery Communications, Inc.(5) ("Adjusted net income") between $1.34 billion and $1.4 billion.  Our outlook incorporates current foreign exchange rates for revenues and expenses and the current share price for mark-to-market equity-based compensation calculations.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Adjusted OIBDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Earnings Per Share and Free Cash Flow

In addition to the results prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") provided in this release, the Company has presented Adjusted OIBDA, Adjusted net income, Adjusted EPS and free cash flow. The Company evaluates the operating performance of its segments based on financial measures such as revenues and Adjusted OIBDA. Adjusted OIBDA is defined as revenues less costs of revenues and selling, general and administrative expenses excluding: (i) mark-to-market equity-based compensation, (ii) depreciation and amortization, (iii) amortization of deferred launch incentives, (iv) exit and restructuring charges, (v) certain impairment charges, and (vi) gains and losses on business and asset dispositions.

Beginning January 1, 2014, the Company reclassified foreign currency gains (losses), net due to transaction settlements and re-measurement of working capital items from selling, general and administrative expense, which is a component of operating income, to other income (expense), net. Prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.  The total foreign currency reclassifications were a gain of $15 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013.   

The Company uses Adjusted OIBDA to assess operating results and performance of its segments, perform analytical comparisons, identify strategies to improve performance and allocate resources to each segment. The Company believes this measure is relevant to investors because it allows them to analyze the operating performance of each segment using the same metric management uses. The Company excludes mark-to-market equity-based compensation, exit and restructuring charges, certain impairment charges, and gains and losses on business and asset dispositions from the calculation of Adjusted OIBDA due to their volatility. The Company also excludes depreciation of fixed assets and amortization of intangible assets and deferred launch incentives, as these amounts do not represent cash payments in the current reporting period.

The Company defines Adjusted net income as net income excluding the impact of amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets and defines Adjusted EPS as earnings excluding the impact of amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets per diluted share.  The Company believes Adjusted net income and Adjusted EPS are relevant to investors because these metrics allow them to evaluate the performance of the Company's operations exclusive of the non-cash amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets that impact the comparability of results from period to period.

The Company defines free cash flow as cash provided by operating activities less acquisitions of property and equipment. The Company uses free cash flow as it believes it is an important indicator for management and investors of the Company's liquidity, including its ability to reduce debt, make strategic investments and return capital to stockholders.

Adjusted OIBDA, Adjusted net income, Adjusted EPS and free cash flow are non-GAAP measures, and should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, operating income, net income, earnings per diluted share and other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP. Please review the supplemental financial schedules beginning on page 10 for reconciliations to GAAP measures.
