Viad Corp Reports Results for the 2020 Third Quarter

Viad Corp (NYSE: VVI), a leading provider of experiential leisure travel and face-to-face events and marketing experiences, today reported financial results for the third quarter of 2020.

Steve Moster, president and chief executive officer, commented, “I am very proud of how our team has responded to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, and I am pleased with our performance during a very difficult third quarter. We kept a keen focus on cash and finished the quarter with a strong liquidity position that will enable us to withstand the pandemic and position our businesses for greater success on the other side.”

Business Update

Regarding Pursuit, Moster commented, “We had a successful third quarter across Pursuit, with improving revenue trends. Each of our geographies successfully re-opened and delivered positive EBITDA during the quarter. Despite ongoing border closures and other restrictions, we saw Pursuit-wide revenue rise to about 40% of the prior year levels during August and September driven by strong demand from our domestic long haul, local and regional markets. Remarkably, some Pursuit experiences posted year-over-year growth in the quarter. Occupancy across Pursuit was 60% with select properties seeing higher average daily rates and RevPAR than 2019. These results demonstrate the resiliency of our business model, the strength of our Refresh, Build, Buy strategy, the value of iconic, inspiring and unforgettable experiences, and the determination of our team to prevail in the face of significant challenges.”

Regarding GES, Moster commented, “We are seeing strong interest from exhibitors and attendees to see live events resume. However, the ongoing pandemic and related government restrictions have kept the live events market largely closed. At GES, we have responded by reducing operating costs to minimal essential levels to preserve liquidity, and we are making structural changes to our delivery model that will yield ongoing cost-savings when revenues return. The market disruption caused by the pandemic has provided us a unique opportunity to accelerate the transformation of GES into a leaner, more flexible, and more profitable organization. I am very grateful to our team for responding rapidly to the challenges of the pandemic and making the difficult decisions necessary to ensure we weather the storm and emerge stronger.”

Third Quarter 2020 Results

Revenue was $63.1 million, down 82.2% from the 2019 third quarter reflecting the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on event activity and long-distance leisure travel. As compared to the 2020 second quarter, revenue more than doubled as Pursuit entered its peak tourism season and experienced strong demand from its local and regional markets, while GES revenue remained at minimal levels. Net loss attributable to Viad was $30.8 million, versus income of $31.4 million in the 2019 third quarter. The 2020 net loss included restructuring charges of $11.3 million primarily related to cost-reduction efforts across GES. Adjusted segment operating loss* was $5.8 million, versus income of $56.0 million in the prior year quarter, and adjusted segment EBITDA* was $8.1 million, versus $72.3 million in the 2019 third quarter.

* Refer to Table 2 of this press release for a discussion and reconciliation of this non-GAAP financial measure to its most directly comparable GAAP financial measure.

Moster commented, “The COVID-19 pandemic continues to have a meaningful impact on the live events industry and leisure travel, and our third quarter results reflect that reality. We continue to believe that virtual cannot replace the value of in-person experiences and interactions, and we are seeing positive signs for future demand. At GES, we’re seeing increased RFPs for corporate business and strong contract pacing for future events. At Pursuit, our 2021 bookings for many locations are pacing ahead of the same time last year. These are indicators that our guests and clients are eager to explore and convene when it is safe and possible to do so. That said, given the evolving, uncertain nature of COVID-19, it is not possible to predict how the pandemic and government reactions will continue to impact the events industry and the broader travel market. Accordingly, we will not be re-issuing financial guidance at this time.”

Liquidity and Capital Deployment

As of September 30, 2020, our total available liquidity was approximately $311 million, comprising $56.5 million in cash, $209.8 million of available capacity on our revolving credit facility, and an additional $45 million available to us through a delayed draw commitment from Crestview Partners. On August 5, 2020, we announced that Crestview Partners made an initial investment of $135 million in newly issued perpetual convertible preferred stock, with a delayed draw commitment of up to an additional $45 million. We also announced an amendment to our $450 million credit facility that waives our existing leverage ratio and interest coverage tests until the third quarter of 2022. During the waiver period, those tests are replaced by a minimum liquidity requirement of $125 million that drops to $100 million on December 31, 2020. That press release can be accessed on our website at www.viad.com.

Our third quarter cash flow from operations was an outflow of approximately $14.7 million, reflecting inflows from Pursuit that partially offset outflows at GES and corporate. Our cash flow from investing activities was a net inflow of approximately $9.6 million, which included proceeds of about $17.1 million from the sale of a GES warehouse and other assets, which more than offset capital expenditures of $7.5 million mainly at Pursuit.

As of September 30, 2020, our debt totaled $259.1 million, down from $475.1 million at the end of the second quarter. During the quarter, we repaid $217.0 million of our outstanding revolver balance bringing the total amount outstanding down to $230.5 million as of September 30, 2020. Our revolver matures in October 2023. The remaining debt balance at the end of the quarter primarily comprises financing lease obligations.

Moster commented, “The actions we have taken to strengthen our liquidity position, including the capital investment from Crestview, $46 million raised through asset dispositions, aggressive cost reductions, and the amendment of our credit facility, put us on solid financial footing. Unlike many competitors, we are fortunate to be in a position of relative strength with the ability to resume important growth investments like FlyOver Las Vegas. Construction for this new attraction restarted in September and we are on track to have it open in the 2021 third quarter. Additionally, construction of our new Sky Lagoon attraction in Iceland remains on course for a second quarter 2021 opening.”

Moster concluded, “In this challenging and uncertain environment, we are being very selective about where we invest our precious capital. We are committed to closely managing cash flows to withstand the pandemic and return to a path of strong value creation for our shareholders.”

VIAD CORP AND SUBSIDIARIES
TABLE ONE - NOTES TO QUARTERLY RESULTS
(UNAUDITED)
 
(A)GES Revenue — During the third quarter of 2020, we identified prior period errors related to the recognition of revenue of our Corporate Accounts’ third-party services. Revenue from these services should have been recorded net. Whereas previously, we recorded this revenue on a gross basis, thus overstating revenue and cost of services by the same amount. As a result, GES' prior period revenue shown in this press release has been corrected to reflect this gross-to-net adjustment. We determined that the error is not material to the previously issued financial statements. The following table provides a reconciliation of previously reported revenue to the corrected figures for 2020 and 2019:

(B)Corporate Activities — The decrease in corporate activities expense during the nine months ended September 30, 2020 relative to 2019 was primarily due to lower headcount, lower performance-based compensation expense as we reduced our estimated performance achievement to zero as a result of COVID-19, and higher acquisition transaction-related costs in 2019, offset in part by fees and expenses related to the equity raise and credit facility amendment.
 
(C)Restructuring Charges — Restructuring charges during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 were primarily related to the elimination of positions and facility closures at GES, as well as charges related to the closure and liquidation of GES' UK-based audio-visual services business during the 2020 third quarter. The 2019 actions arose in connection with our ongoing efforts to simplify and transform GES for greater profitability. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, we accelerated our transformation and streamlining efforts at GES to significantly reduce costs and create a lower and more flexible cost structure focused on servicing our more profitable market segments. The 2020 charges also included amounts related to the elimination of positions at our corporate office in response to the pandemic.
 
(D)Impairment Charges — During the three months ended September 30, 2020, we recorded a fixed asset impairment charge of $0.7 million. During the nine months ended September 30,2020, we recorded non-cash goodwill impairments of $185.8 million, a non-cash impairment charge to intangible assets of $15.7 million, and fixed asset impairment charges of $1.6 million.
 
(E)Legal Settlement — During 2019, we recorded a charge to resolve a legal dispute at GES involving a former industry contractor.
 
(F)Pension Plan Withdrawal — During 2019, we finalized the terms of a new collective-bargaining agreement with the Teamsters 727 union. The terms included a withdrawal from the under-funded Central States Pension Plan. Accordingly, we recorded a charge of $15.5 million, which represented the estimated present value of future contributions we will be required to make to the plan as a result of this withdrawal from the plan. Additionally, in 2020, we recorded $0.5 million related to the withdrawal from one of our multi-employer plans.
 
(G)Net Interest Expense — The increase in net interest expense for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 relative to 2019 was primarily due to higher debt balances in 2020.
 
(H)Income Taxes — The effective rate was a negative 3% for the three months ended September 30, 2020 and 26% for the three months ended September 30,2019. The effective rate was negative 7% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 27% for the nine months ended September 30, 2019. The negative effective tax rates for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 were due to no tax benefits being recorded in our U.S., United Kingdom, and other European jurisdictions as a result of recording a valuation allowance during the second quarter of 2020 against our net deferred tax assets in these jurisdictions due to our belief that it is more likely than not that we will be unable to realize the tax benefits from our current year losses in these jurisdictions.
 
(I)Income (Loss) from Discontinued Operations — Loss from discontinued operations during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 was primarily due to a settlement and legal expenses related to previously sold operations. Income from discontinued operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 was primarily related to a favorable legal settlement related to previously sold operations partially offset by legal expenses.

VIAD CORP AND SUBSIDIARIES
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 Viad’s 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 Viad’s consolidated financial performance as reconciled below. Because these non-GAAP measures do not consider all items affecting Viad’s consolidated financial performance, a user of Viad’s 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 Company’s 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 Viad’s performance. Management believes that the presentation of Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted Segment EBITDA provide useful information to investors regarding Viad’s results of operations for trending, analyzing and benchmarking the performance and value of Viad’s 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.
