Latest News

Strengthens Liquidity Position and Enhances Financial Flexibility

  • Secured up to $180 million investment from Crestview Partners and amended credit facility to provide financial covenant relief until September 30, 2022
  • GES continues to minimize costs while supporting clients with virtual events and plans for future event activity
  • Pursuit experiences are open and welcoming guests with focus on local and regional visitors

 

PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Viad Corp (NYSE: VVI) today reported financial results for the second quarter of 2020, as well as provided updates regarding the business and actions taken to bolster liquidity and secure financial flexibility.

Business Update

Steve Moster, president and chief executive officer, commented, “The second quarter was unlike any other quarter we have experienced. I want to thank our teams for their actions to support our businesses during this unprecedented time. As the COVID pandemic and government actions halted services across our business, we made swift and difficult decisions with an immediate focus on cash flows and the health and safety of our team members, clients, guests, and communities. We essentially placed our business into a state of hibernation and took a host of other actions to preserve liquidity, including securing additional capital of $180 million and amending our credit facility for longer-term covenant relief.”

“With the lifting of government mandated closures and stay-at-home orders, Pursuit got back to business with a phased re-opening of our attractions and lodging operations starting in May and continuing into July,” continued Moster. “Most experiences are currently open and welcoming guests primarily from our local and regional markets in North America and international visitors in Iceland. Despite ongoing border closures and other restrictions, we are seeing continued demand for Pursuit’s attractions and hotels as the summer tourism season progresses.”

“At GES, the live event market remains largely closed and our primary focus remains on minimizing the cash burn. We continue to operate at near hibernation levels, supporting clients with virtual events and planning for future events. Given the uncertainty we continue to see around event activity and industry recovery, we have a sharp focus on our transformation efforts to ensure GES emerges as a leaner and more profitable business. We will continue controlling the things that we can control, and we stand ready to re-activate areas of GES as it is prudent to do so,” concluded Moster.

Second Quarter 2020 Results

Revenue was $30.9 million, down 92.3% from the 2019 second quarter reflecting the acute impact of the COVID-19 pandemic that halted event activity and forced closures across Pursuit’s collection of experiences. Net loss attributable to Viad was $206.3 million, versus income of $13.8 million in the 2019 second quarter. The 2020 net loss included non-cash impairment charges of $114.0 million and unfavorable tax matters of $37.9 million, which includes a valuation allowance of $25.5 million against deferred tax assets and a reversal of the $12.4 million tax benefit recorded on impairment charges during the first quarter. Adjusted segment operating loss* was $48.9 million, versus income of $47.3 million in the prior year quarter, and adjusted segment EBITDA* was negative $35.1 million, versus positive $61.8 million in the 2019 second 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.

Cash was $154.2 million and debt totaled $475.1 million at June 30, 2020. Cash flow from operations was an outflow of $26.5 million, which included favorable changes in working capital of approximately $17 million. Cash flow from investing activities was an inflow of $20.1 million, with proceeds from insurance policies and the sale of assets of $29.3 million offsetting capital expenditures of $9.3 million. Return of capital during the quarter was $2.0 million, representing the regular quarterly dividend declared in February. Future dividend payments have since been suspended.

Moster said, “I am very proud of our team for responding rapidly to the challenges of the COVID pandemic. After fully drawing on our revolver at the beginning of April, we entered the second quarter with $162 million of cash. And we limited our subsequent cash outflow during the quarter to about $8 million through aggressive cost reductions, diligent working capital management, the monetization of certain non-operating assets, and the phased re-opening of Pursuit’s experiences.”

Moster concluded, “Given the evolving, uncertain nature of COVID-19, it is impossible 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 Update and Response to COVID-19 Pandemic

On August 5, 2020, the Company 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 credit facility that provides for the waiver of existing leverage ratio and interest coverage tests until the third quarter of 2022. That press release can be accessed on our website at www.viad.com.

On a pro forma basis, our liquidity position at June 30, 2020 would have been approximately $340 million when factoring in the total $180 million investment commitment from Crestview, $17 million of proceeds received in July from our sale of a GES warehouse, and fees and expenses related to the equity raise and credit facility amendment.

“We believe the investment from Crestview and the extended waiver period for our financial covenants provide us ample financial flexibility and strength to not only endure what may be a slow recovery within the event industry and a gradual return to normal levels of leisure travel, but also to continue making important investments to fuel the growth of Pursuit,” said Moster. “We remain committed to closely managing cash flows and our businesses to maximize value for our shareholders.”

In addition to our recent actions to secure additional liquidity and obtain longer-term financial covenant relief under our credit facility, we have taken various other measures including, but not limited to the following:

  • We implemented aggressive cost reduction actions, including furloughs, layoffs, mandatory unpaid time off, and salary reductions for all employees across the company.
  • We raised a total of $46 million in cash proceeds from the disposition of certain assets, including $25 million in May related to the cash surrender value of life insurance policies and $17 million in July from the sale of a GES warehouse that we plan to vacate in connection with our facility downsizing efforts.
  • We eliminated discretionary spending, reduced maintenance capital expenditures to essential levels, and paused spending on the majority of growth projects.
  • We suspended future dividend payments and share repurchases.
  • We took advantage of available governmental assistance programs for wage and tax relief.

VIAD CORP AND SUBSIDIARIES

TABLE ONE - NOTES TO QUARTERLY RESULTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

(A)

 

Corporate Activities — The decrease in corporate activities expense during the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 relative to 2019 was primarily due to lower headcount and lower performance-based compensation expense as we reduced our estimated performance achievement to zero as a result of COVID-19.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(B)

 

Restructuring Charges — Restructuring charges during the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 were primarily related to the elimination of certain positions at GES and Viad’s corporate office.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(C)

 

Impairment Charges — Due to the impact of COVID-19 on our business, we performed interim evaluations of goodwill as of March 31, 2020 and June 30, 2020. During the first quarter of 2020, we recorded a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $72.7 million associated with GES U.S., GES EMEA, and Pursuit’s Glacier Park Collection reporting units and we recorded a non-cash impairment charge to other intangible assets of $15.7 million related to our U.S. audio-visual production business. During the second quarter of 2020, we recorded a full impairment charge to the remaining GES goodwill balance of $113.1 million in addition to a fixed asset impairment charge of $0.9 million.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(D)

 

Legal Settlement — During 2019, we recorded a charge to resolve a legal dispute at GES involving a former industry contractor.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(E)

 

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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(F)

 

Net Interest Expense — The increase in net interest expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 relative to 2019 was primarily due to higher debt balances in 2020.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

(G)

 

Income Taxes — The effective tax rate was a negative 21% for the three months ended June 30, 2020 and 33% for the three months ended June 30, 2019. The effective tax rate was a negative 7% for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 19% for the six months ended June 30, 2019. The negative effective tax rates for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 were due to the recording of a valuation allowance this quarter against our remaining U.S., UK, and other European net deferred tax assets of $25 million, as well as no tax benefits on non-deductible goodwill impairments and losses recognized in those jurisdictions.

 

 

 

(H)

 

Loss from Discontinued Operations — Loss from discontinued operations during the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 was primarily related to legal expenses related to previously sold operations.

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.

VIAD CORP AND SUBSIDIARIES
TABLE TWO - NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES (CONTINUED)
(UNAUDITED)

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.
