Viad Corp Reports 2018 Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results

Viad Corp (NYSE: VVI) today announced fourth quarter and full year 2018 results. Our year-over-year results reflect negative show rotation at GES, partially offset by strong organic growth at Pursuit. Both business groups continued to make progress toward our strategic goals and focused on expanding and enhancing our offerings to accelerate our growth and profitability.

Full Year

  • Full year revenue of $1.3 billion decreased $10.8 million (0.8%) year-over-year, or $16.6 million (1.3%) on an organic basis (which excludes the impact of exchange rate variances).
    • The decrease in organic revenue is primarily due to negative show rotation of about $35 million at GES, partially offset by high single-digit growth at Pursuit.
    • Exchange rate variances had a favorable impact on revenue of $5.8 million versus 2017.
  • Adjusted segment operating income, adjusted segment EBITDA and income before other items declined year-over-year, primarily due to lower revenue and investments to support continued growth in both business units, partially offset by lower performance-based incentives.

Fourth Quarter

  • Revenue of $296.9 million increased $19.6 million (7.1%) year-over-year, or $22.1 million (8.0%) on an organic basis (which excludes the impact of exchange rate variances).
    • The organic revenue increase primarily reflects strong underlying revenue growth and positive show rotation at GES. Pursuit also experienced strong organic revenue growth during its seasonally slow fourth quarter.
    • Exchange rate variances had an unfavorable impact of $2.4 million.
  • Adjusted segment operating income, adjusted segment EBITDA and income before other items improved compared to the prior year quarter primarily due to higher revenue and lower performance-based incentives.

Steve Moster, president and chief executive officer, commented, During 2018, we continued to make good progress toward our strategic goals. At GES, our efforts to become the global full-service provider for live events are creating new growth opportunities for our business while driving innovation and enhanced experiences for our clients. At Pursuit, we continue to find unique opportunities to scale the business and we are leveraging revenue management to accelerate growth and profitability. I am encouraged by the actions we are taking to capitalize on key opportunities and position our business for future success.

(1) Base same-shows are defined as shows produced by GES out of the same city during the same quarter in both the current year and prior year. Base same-shows represented 29.8% and 33.8% of GES U.S. organic revenue during the 2018 fourth quarter and full year, respectively.
(2) Show rotation refers to shows that take place once every two, three or four years, as well as annual shows that change quarters from one year to the next.
 

GES Full Year

  • Full year GES revenue decreased $22.2 million (2.0%) year-over-year. On an organic basis (which excludes the impact of exchange rate variances), the decrease was $29.9 million, or 2.6%.
    • U.S. organic revenue decreased $24.9 million (2.9%) primarily due to negative show rotation of approximately $27 million and certain non-recurring business produced in 2017, partially offset by base same-show growth of 2.8%.
    • International organic revenue decreased $9.3 million (3.3%) primarily due to negative show rotation of approximately $8 million and certain non-recurring business produced in 2017, partially offset by new business wins.
  • Full year GES adjusted segment operating income decreased $11.1 million (21.9%), and $11.6 million (22.7%) on an organic basis.
    • U.S. organic adjusted segment operating income decreased $9.4 million, primarily due to lower revenue and selective investments in additional resources to capitalize on continued growth opportunities, partially offset by lower performance-based incentives.
    • International organic adjusted segment operating income decreased $2.2 million, primarily due to lower revenue, partially offset by lower performance-based incentives.
  • Exchange rate variances had a favorable impact on full year revenue and adjusted segment operating income of $7.7 million and $0.4 million, respectively.

GES Fourth Quarter

  • GES revenue of $281.8 million increased $18.8 million (7.1%) year-over-year. On an organic basis, which excludes the impact of exchange rate variances, revenue increased $20.6 million (7.8%).
    • U.S. organic revenue increased $22.3 million (11.8%) primarily due to positive show rotation of approximately $10 million, increased revenue from our corporate clients and new business wins.
    • International organic revenue decreased $1.0 million (1.2%) primarily due to negative show rotation of approximately $2 million, partially offset by growth in the underlying business.
  • GES adjusted segment operating income of $8.9 million* increased $6.6 million year-over-year, and $6.5 million on an organic basis.
    • U.S. organic adjusted segment operating income of $4.2 million* increased by $9.0 million primarily due to the increase in revenue and lower performance-based incentives.
    • International organic adjusted segment operating income of $4.5 million* decreased by $2.5 million primarily due to the decline in revenue and increased personnel costs to support continued growth, partially offset by lower performance-based incentives.
  • Exchange rate variances had an unfavorable impact on fourth quarter revenue of $1.9 million and a favorable impact on adjusted segment operating income of $0.1 million.

Moster said, GES finished the year with strong revenue growth of 7.1% during the fourth quarter. We continue to drive growth both on a same-show basis as well as through new corporate event and other business wins. As we strive to position GES as the preferred global, full-service provider for live events, we are leveraging our audio visual production and event technology services to strengthen existing relationships and create new client opportunities. In addition, we are focused on driving innovation and operational excellence across our business to further strengthen our competitive position for long-term value creation.

(1)     Same-store RevPAR is calculated as total rooms revenue divided by the total number of room nights available for all comparable Pursuit properties during the periods presented, expressed on a constant currency basis. Comparable properties are defined as those owned by Viad and operating for the entirety of both periods. Accordingly, the measures shown above do not include the Mount Royal Hotel, which was closed during 2017 and through June 2018 due to fire damage.
(2) Same-store revenue per passenger is calculated as total attractions revenue, which includes ticket sales as well as ancillary retail and food and beverage revenue, divided by the total number of passengers for all comparable Pursuit attractions, expressed on a constant currency basis. Same-store effective ticket price is a similar measure but only takes into consideration revenue from the sale of attraction tickets. Comparable attractions are defined as those owned by Viad and operating for the entirety of both periods.
 

Pursuit Full Year

  • Full year Pursuit revenue increased $11.4 million (6.6%) year-over-year. On an organic basis (which excludes exchange rate variances), revenue increased $13.3 million (7.6%) driven primarily by revenue management and investments to refresh our attraction and hospitality portfolio, as well as the re-opening of our Mount Royal Hotel.
  • Full year Pursuit adjusted segment operating income increased $1.5 million (3.2%). On an organic basis, adjusted segment operating income increased $3.1 million (6.5%) primarily due to the increase in revenue, partially offset by additional depreciation expense related to the reconstruction of our Mount Royal Hotel and other costs to support the continued growth of the business.
  • Exchange rate variances had an unfavorable impact on full year revenue and adjusted segment operating income of $1.9 million and $1.6 million, respectively.

Pursuit Fourth Quarter

  • Pursuit revenue of $15.2 million increased $0.9 million (6.1%) year-over-year. On an organic basis, revenue increased $1.4 million (10.0%) primarily driven by the re-opening of our Mount Royal Hotel and our revenue management and refresh efforts.
  • Pursuit adjusted segment operating loss of $4.7 million* improved by $0.8 million (14.0%). Organic adjusted segment operating loss of $4.7 million* improved by $0.8 million (15.0%) primarily due to the increase in revenue.

Moster said, Pursuit delivered strong full year results, with organic revenue growth of 7.6%. Our revenue management and refresh investments throughout the year led to strong performance at our attractions and hospitality assets, despite the impact of forest fires that hurt visitation during our peak season. Revenue per passenger improved 7.7% at our attractions and RevPAR was up 2.9% at our hospitality assets. In addition, the investments we have made to enhance our food and beverage offerings are driving enhanced guest satisfaction with strong financial returns. Overall, our team delivered impressive financial results and great progress against the various organic projects scheduled to come online in 2019. With a strong pipeline of new additions to our portfolio of unique experiences, we are excited about the year ahead.

Cash Flow / Capital Structure

  • Our cash flow from operations was an outflow of $14.7 million for the fourth quarter and an inflow of $87.0 million for the full year.
  • Capital expenditures for the quarter totaled $15.9 million, comprising $6.1 million for GES and $9.9 million for Pursuit. For the full year, capital expenditures totaled $85.5 million, comprising $26.3 million for GES and $59.0 million for Pursuit, which includes approximately $20 million for the reconstruction and renovation of our Mount Royal Hotel and approximately $7 million for the development of our FlyOver Iceland attraction.
  • Return of capital totaled $10.1 million for the quarter and $25.3 million for the full year.
    • During the fourth quarter, we repurchased 165,382 shares for $8.1 million. For the full year, we repurchased 340,473 shares at an average price of $50.44, totaling $17.2 million.
    • Viads Board of Directors authorized the repurchase of an additional 500,000 shares, bringing our total authorized shares remaining for repurchase to 600,067.
    • Our regular quarterly dividend payments of $0.10 per share, totaled $2.0 million for the quarter and $8.2 million for the full year.
  • Debt proceeds (net) totaled $30.5 million for the quarter and $18.4 million for the full year.
  • Cash and cash equivalents were $44.9 million, debt was $232.4 million and our debt-to-capital ratio was 34.0% at December 31, 2018.

2019 Full Year Guidance

Moster said, We are excited about our growth plans for 2019. At Pursuit, we have many expansion projects underway that will be complete for the 2019 peak tourism season. As with our past investments at Pursuit, we expect these will deliver strong returns, revenue and margins. At GES, we expect continued same-show growth and new business wins as we continue to pursue share gains in the high-margin corporate event market. We expect this growth to more than offset the impact of negative show rotation. We remain committed to our growth strategies for both business units and continue to identify new opportunities to drive profitable growth and deliver strong returns on investment.

  • We expect consolidated revenue to increase at a mid-single digit rate from 2018 full year revenue, driven by growth at both GES and Pursuit.
  • We expect consolidated adjusted segment EBITDA to be in the range of $152.5 million to $158.5 million, as compared to $146.3 million* in 2018.
  • Our guidance assumes that exchange rates during 2019 will approximate $0.77 U.S. Dollars per Canadian Dollar and $1.30 U.S. Dollars per British Pound. As compared to 2018, we expect exchange rate variances to impact 2019 full year results as follows:

$ in millions, except per share data
Revenue $ (5.0 )           $ (5.5 )           $ 0.5

  • The outlook for our business units is as follows:
                          GES           Pursuit

  • We expect GES show rotation to have a net negative impact on full year revenue of about $25 million versus 2018. Show rotation refers to shows that occur less frequently than annually, as well as annual shows that shift quarters from one year to the next.

  • We expect GES U.S. base same-show revenue to increase at a low single digit rate.
  • We expect Pursuits 2019 growth to be fueled primarily by investments to support our Refresh, Build, Buy strategy, which are expected to contribute incremental revenue of approximately $15 million to $17 million during 2019. On a same-store basis, we expect Pursuits revenue to increase at a mid-single digit rate, reflecting our revenue management efforts to maximize yields across our high-quality experiences.
  • We expect start-up costs related to the development of Pursuits FlyOver Iceland attraction, which is expected to open in Summer 2019, to approximate $1 million during the first six months of 2019. These costs are not included in the adjusted segment EBITDA or adjusted segment operating income guidance ranges above.
  • We expect corporate activities expense to approximate $11 million to $12 million.
  • We expect our effective tax rate on income before other items to approximate 29%.

  • We expect GES first quarter revenue to be negatively impacted by about $8 million versus the 2018 first quarter due to show rotation and exchange rate variances, partially offset by low-single digit same show growth and new business wins. Our outlook for GES adjusted segment operating results reflects higher compensation expense, including performance-based incentives and additional resources to drive growth and profitability in high-value areas.
  • We expect Pursuit first quarter revenue to increase primarily due to the re-opening of the Mount Royal Hotel in July 2018, as well as continued focus on revenue management and refresh efforts across our attraction and hospitality portfolio. Our outlook for Pursuits adjusted segment operating results reflects an increase in depreciation expense of approximately $2 million.

TABLE ONE – NOTES TO QUARTERLY AND FULL YEAR RESULTS
(UNAUDITED)
   
(A) Corporate Activities The decrease in corporate activities expense for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018 relative to 2017 was primarily due to a decrease in performance-based compensation expense.
 
(B) Impairment Recoveries The impairment recoveries recorded during the twelve months ended December 31, 2017 were related to insurance proceeds received as a partial settlement for fire damage to our Mount Royal Hotel.
 
(C) Other Expense On January 1, 2018, we adopted ASU 2017-07, which requires retrospective adoption. As a result, we recorded the nonservice cost component of net periodic benefit cost within other expense for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2018, and we reclassified $1.1 million and $2.0 million from operating expenses to other expense for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2017, respectively, to conform to current period presentation.
 
(D) Net Interest Expense The increase in net interest expense for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2018 was primarily due to higher debt balances in 2018.
 
(E) Income Taxes We recorded a $16.1 million tax charge during the fourth quarter of 2017 and a $3.1 million tax benefit during the third quarter of 2018 related to the estimated impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Excluding the $16.1 million charge, our effective tax rate was 34% and 29% for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2017, respectively. The tax expense recorded for the three months ended December 31, 2018 includes a $0.9 million increase to our valuation allowance for foreign net operating losses and reflects a higher mix of foreign income, which is taxed at higher rates than our domestic losses, as well as increased non-deductible expenses as compared to the three months ended December 31, 2017. Excluding the $3.1 million benefit, our effect rate for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018 was 31%. The increase in the full year rate is due to our mix of domestic versus foreign income, which is taxed at higher rates, a $0.9 million increase to our valuation allowance for foreign net operating losses, increased non-deductible expenses, and a higher effective state tax rate.
 
(F) Income (Loss) from Discontinued Operations The income from discontinued operations for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018 was primarily related to favorable legal settlements related to previously sold operations, partially offset by legal expenses associated with previously sold operations. The loss from discontinued operations for the twelve months ended December 31, 2017 was primarily related to legal expenses associated with previously sold operations, offset in part by a reduction in an uncertain tax position due to the lapse of statute and the reduction of certain reserves.

TABLE TWO – NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
(UNAUDITED)
     
IMPORTANT DISCLOSURES REGARDING NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
 
This document includes the presentation of “Income/(Loss) Before Other Items”, “Adjusted EBITDA”, “Adjusted Segment EBITDA” and “Adjusted Segment Operating Income/(Loss)”, which are supplemental to results presented under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP) and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. These non-GAAP measures are utilized by management to facilitate period-to-period comparisons and analysis of Viads operating performance and should be considered in addition to, but not as substitutes for, other similar measures reported in accordance with GAAP. The use of these non-GAAP financial measures is limited, compared to the GAAP measure of net income attributable to Viad, because they do not consider a variety of items affecting Viads consolidated financial performance as reconciled below. Because these non-GAAP measures do not consider all items affecting Viads consolidated financial performance, a user of Viads financial information should consider net income attributable to Viad as an important measure of financial performance because it provides a more complete measure of the Companys performance.
 
Income/(Loss) Before Other Items and Adjusted Segment Operating Income/(Loss) are considered useful operating metrics, in addition to net income attributable to Viad, as potential variations arising from non-operational expenses/income are eliminated, thus resulting in additional measures considered to be indicative of Viads performance. Management believes that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Segment EBITDA provide useful information to investors regarding Viads results of operations for trending, analyzing and benchmarking the performance and value of Viads business. Management also believes that the presentation of Adjusted Segment EBITDA for acquisitions and other major capital projects enables investors to assess how effectively management is investing capital into major corporate development projects, both from a valuation and return perspective.

Organic – The term “organic” is used within this document to refer to results without the impact of exchange rate variances and acquisitions, if any, until such acquisitions are included in the entirety of both comparable periods. The impact of exchange rate variances (or “FX Impact”) is calculated as the difference between current period activity translated at the current period’s exchange rates and the comparable prior period’s exchange rates. Management believes that the presentation of “organic” results permits investors to better understand Viad’s performance without the effects of exchange rate variances or acquisitions.
