TVA Group reports $8.6 million growth in adjusted operating income(1) in the second quarter of 2017

  (August 04, 2017)

MONTREAL, Aug. 4, 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - TVA Group Inc. ("TVA Group" or the "Corporation") announced today that it recorded a net loss attributable to shareholders in the amount of $1.9 million or $0.04 per share in the second quarter of 2017, compared with a net loss attributable to shareholders of $5.7 million or $0.13 per share in the same quarter of 2016.

Second quarter operating highlights:

  • Consolidated adjusted operating income1 of $11,072,000, a favourable variance of $8,645,000 from the same quarter of 2016.
  • $5,076,000 adjusted operating income1 in the Broadcasting & Production segment, a favourable variance of $7,507,000 caused mainly by a 30.2% decrease in the adjusted operating loss1 of "TVA Sports" due to increased advertising and subscription revenues.
  • $3,965,000 adjusted operating income1 in the Magazines segment, a favourable variance of $45,000 due primarily to the savings generated by rationalization plans implemented in recent quarters.
  • $2,031,000 adjusted operating income1 in the Film Production & Audiovisual Services segment ("MELS"), a favourable variance of $1,093,000 essentially because of increased adjusted operating income1 from soundstage and equipment rental due to higher volume of activities.

"We are satisfied with our second quarter of 2017 results, particularly in the Broadcasting & Production segment, which grew its advertising revenues for the third consecutive quarter, with year-over-year increases of 77.6% at "TVA Sports", 4.2% at the other specialty services, and 6.7% at TVA Network.


TVA Group's total market share increased by 3.5 points to 39.8%2 in the second quarter of 2017 compared with 36.3% in the same period of 2016. "TVA Sports" increased its market share by 1.8 points to 5.4% as a result of large audiences for the Stanley Cup playoffs. The channel set a new record by registering the best ratings for the Stanley Cup finals since 2008. The news and public affairs channel "LCN" grew its market share by 0.8 points to 4.5% and TVA Network by 0.5 points to 23.9%. TVA Network also had the top 3 most-watched programs in Quebec during the period," commented Julie Tremblay, President and CEO of the Corporation.

"The Magazines segment's adjusted operating income1 was stable in the second quarter of 2017 compared with the same quarter of 2016 despite an 11.0% decrease3 in its operating revenues. The savings generated by the expense rationalization and reduction plans implemented in recent quarters have offset the decline in the segment's operating revenues," added Julie Tremblay.

"Lastly, the arrival of major new productions, including the Hollywood movie X-Men and the television series The Bold Type, in the second quarter, helped boost the Film Production & Audiovisual Services segment's adjusted operating income,1 which more than doubled compared with the same quarter of 2016. The growing demand for film and TV serie production services, combined with the drawing power of Canada and of Montreal in particular and the reputation of our facilities and services in this field, have led us to submit to the Corporation's Board of Directors a project to expand our existing complex," concluded Ms. Tremblay. 

MELS studios enlargement project

The Corporation's Board of Directors today approved the plan to expand the MELS production complex in the Technoparc, near the Bonaventure Autoroute. The project involves construction of a 160,000 square-foot building which will include a 60,000-square-foot soundstage with 50-foot vertical clearance and adjacent multi-use spaces. The Corporation is in the process of obtaining the required permits. It hopes to break ground in the fall and have the facility ready to welcome its first productions in the summer of 2018.

Definition

Adjusted operating income (loss)("Adjusted operating results")

In its analysis of operating results, the Corporation defines adjusted operating income (loss) as net income (loss) before depreciation of property, plant and equipment, amortization of intangible assets, financial expenses, operational restructuring costs and others, income taxes and share of income of associated corporations. Adjusted operating income (loss) as defined above is not a measure of results that is consistent with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"). Neither is it intended to be regarded as an alternative to other financial performance measures or to the statement of cash flows as a measure of liquidity. This measure should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for other performance measures prepared in accordance with IFRS. This measure is used by management and the Board of Directors to evaluate the Corporation's consolidated results and the results of its segments. This measure eliminates the significant level of impairment, depreciation and amortization of tangible and intangible assets and is unaffected by the capital structure or investment activities of the Corporation and its segments. Adjusted operating income (loss) is also relevant because it is a significant component of the Corporation's annual incentive compensation programs. The Corporation's definition of adjusted operating income (loss) may not be identical to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Forward-looking information disclaimer

The statements in this news release that are not historical facts may be forward-looking statements and are subject to important known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions which could cause the Corporation's actual results for future periods to differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements.

Certain factors that may cause actual results to differ from current expectations include seasonality, operational risks (including pricing actions by competitors and the risk of loss of key customers in the Film Production & Audiovisual Services segment), programming, content and production cost risks, credit risk, government regulation risks, government assistance risks, changes in economic conditions, fragmentation of the media landscape, risk related to the Corporation's ability to adapt to fast-paced technological change and to new delivery and storage methods, and labour relation risks.

Investors and others are cautioned that the foregoing list of factors that may affect future results is not exhaustive and that undue reliance should not be placed on any forward-looking statements.

TVA GROUP INC.
Notes to interim condensed consolidated financial statements

Three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2017 and 2016 (unaudited)
(Tabular amounts are expressed in thousands of Canadian dollars, except per share and per option amounts)

TVA Group Inc. ("TVA Group" or the "Corporation") is governed by the Quebec Business Corporations Act. TVA Group is a communications company engaged in the Broadcasting & Production, Film Production & Audiovisual Services, and Magazines businesses (note 10). The Corporation is a subsidiary of Quebecor Media Inc. ("Quebecor Media" or the "parent corporation") and its ultimate parent corporation is Quebecor Inc. ("Quebecor"). The Corporation's head office is located at 1600 de Maisonneuve Boulevard East, Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

The Corporation's businesses experience significant seasonality due to, among other factors, seasonal advertising patterns, consumers' viewing, reading and listening habits, and the production needs of international and local producers. Because the Corporation depends on the sale of advertising for a significant portion of its revenues, operating results are also sensitive to prevailing economic conditions, including changes in local, regional and national economic conditions, particularly as they may affect advertising expenditures. Accordingly, the results of operations for interim periods should not necessarily be considered indicative of full-year results.

1. Basis of presentation

These consolidated financial statements were prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB"), except that they do not include all disclosures required under IFRS for annual consolidated financial statements. In particular, these consolidated financial statements were prepared in accordance with IAS 34, Interim Financial Reporting, and accordingly, they are condensed consolidated financial statements. These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Corporation's 2016 annual consolidated financial statements, which describe the accounting policies used to prepare these financial statements.

Certain comparative figures for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2016 have been restated to conform to the presentation adopted for the three-month and six-month periods ended June 30, 2017.

2. Revenues

Deferred stock unit ("DSU") and performance stock unit ("PSU") plans

TVA Group has a DSU plan and a PSU plan for some management employees based on TVA Group Class B Non-Voting Shares ("TVA Group Class B Shares"). Quebecor also has DSU and PSU plans for its employees and those of its subsidiaries, based on, among other things, Quebecor Class B Shares. Under these plans, the DSUs vest over six years and will be redeemed for cash only upon the participant's retirement or cessation of employment, as the case may be. The PSUs vest over three years and will be redeemed for cash at the end of that period, subject to achievement of financial targets. Under the TVA Group plan, holders of DSUs and PSUs are entitled to receive dividends on TVA Group Class B Shares in the form of additional units. Under the Quebecor plan, holders of DSUs and PSUs are entitled to receive dividends on Quebecor Class B Shares in the form of additional units.

9. Fair value of financial instruments

In accordance with IFRS 13, Fair Value Measurement, the Corporation has considered the following fair value hierarchy. This hierarchy reflects the significance of the inputs used in measuring the financial instruments accounted for at fair value on the consolidated balance sheets:

 

Level 1:

Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;

Level 2:

Inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly (i.e., as prices) or indirectly (i.e., derived from prices); and

Level 3:

Inputs that are not based on observable market data (unobservable inputs).

 

The fair value of long-term debt and of the derivative financial instrument are estimated based on a valuation model using Level 2 inputs. Fair value is based on discounted cash flows using period-end market yields or the market value of similar financial instruments with the same maturity.

The book value and fair value of long-term debt and the derivative financial instrument as at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016 are as follows:

The Chief Executive Officer uses adjusted operating income (loss) as a measure of financial performance for assessing the performance of each of the Corporation's segments. Adjusted operating income (loss) is defined as net income (loss) before depreciation of property, plant and equipment, amortization of intangible assets, financial expenses, operational restructuring costs and others, income taxes and share of income of associated corporations. Adjusted operating income (loss) as defined above is not a measure of results that is consistent with IFRS.
