Financial Position Remains Solid and Actions to Strengthen Business Continue

  • Total available liquidity was approximately $260 million as of December 31, 2020
  • Pursuit resumes its growth journey with two new attractions to open in 2021
  • GES continues to prepare for return of live events

PHOENIX--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- 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 2020 fourth quarter and full year. The company continued its sharp focus on cash flow management, while making important progress on initiatives that will position the company for stronger results in 2021 and beyond.

Steve Moster, president and chief executive officer, commented, “Our industries have been some of the hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic, and I am extremely grateful for the tireless efforts of our team to help our company successfully navigate through this challenging period. Not only have we solidified our liquidity position and dramatically reduced our expenses, but we have also taken actions that will accelerate our recovery and position us for greater success on the other side.”

Regarding Pursuit, Moster commented, “At Pursuit, we maximized revenue and profits during the peak summer tourism season by catering to local and regional guests with diligent cost management down to the property level, and an unrelenting focus on guest experience. We also continued to push forward with some important growth projects, including our new Sky Lagoon attraction in Iceland and FlyOver Las Vegas, which are both on schedule to open this year.”

Regarding GES, Moster commented, “At GES, we brought expenses down to minimum essential levels while maintaining our strong client relationships and bolstering our corporate client roster. We also made important structural changes that have freed up capital, reduced our fixed costs, and positioned GES to flex up when revenue returns with a more variable cost structure and improved margins.”

Moster concluded, “As we begin 2021, our industries continue to feel the effects of the pandemic, with muted leisure travel and sparse live event activity. We are fortunate to have a strong liquidity position and we remain optimistic about the future for both of our businesses. We expect that leisure travel will lead the way in the travel sector’s post-pandemic recovery and Pursuit’s experiences in iconic locations are well-positioned to benefit from pent-up perennial demand. The recovery at GES will likely take longer to unfold, but live events are taking place in some locations and the level of bookings in the back half of 2021 is encouraging. Our clients remain eager to return to face-to-face events and we are ready to support them.”

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2020 Results

Fourth quarter revenue was $27.9 million, down from $300.7 million in the 2019 fourth quarter, reflecting the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on live events and leisure travel. Revenue from Pursuit was down approximately 58% from the 2019 fourth quarter, as Pursuit welcomed primarily regional and domestic long-haul visitors, while border closures and pandemic concerns constrained international travel. GES revenue was down approximately 93% from the 2019 fourth quarter, as GES supported clients primarily through virtual events and planning for future events, while face-to-face event activity remained at minimal levels. The fourth quarter net loss attributable to Viad was $50.5 million and our adjusted segment EBITDA* was negative $30.2 million.

Full year revenue was $415.4 million, down approximately 68% from $1.3 billion in 2019, with declines of approximately 66% at Pursuit and 69% at GES. The full year net loss attributable to Viad was $374.1 million, versus income of $22.0 million in 2019. The 2020 loss included non-cash impairment charges of $203.1 million, unfavorable tax matters of $25.5 million, restructuring and restructuring-related charges of $18.7 million primarily related to cost-reduction efforts across GES, and other non-recurring expenses of $6.7 million. Full year adjusted segment EBITDA* was negative $50.2 million, versus positive $152.7 million in 2019.

* 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, “We entered 2020 with great momentum and posted revenue growth of 8.5% during the first two months of the year. When the pandemic hit, we quickly shifted gears in response to the abrupt revenue decline, and implemented sweeping cost reductions and enhanced safety measures across Viad that have helped us weather this unprecedented year. Importantly, we did so while continuing to advance our growth strategies with two new attractions set to open in the coming year, and delivering great hospitality and service to our guests and clients. While our full year financial performance looks nothing like we expected it would at the beginning of 2020, I am incredibly proud of what our team accomplished. In this upcoming year of recovery, I am confident that the strength, drive, creativity, and flexibility of our team will help us succeed.”

Liquidity and Capital Deployment

As of December 31, 2020, our total available liquidity was approximately $260 million, comprising approximately $40 million in unrestricted cash, approximately $175 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.

During the 2020 fourth quarter, our total available liquidity decreased by approximately $50 million. Our fourth quarter cash flow from operations was an outflow of approximately $38 million and our capital expenditures totaled $13.5 million, which included the development of Pursuit’s FlyOver Las Vegas attraction.

As of December 31, 2020, our debt totaled $296.4 million, primarily comprising approximately $267 million drawn on our $450 million revolving credit facility, which matures in October 2023. Our remaining debt balance at the end of 2020 primarily comprises financing lease obligations and a term loan at FlyOver Iceland.

Moster commented, “During the course of 2020, we have solidified our liquidity position and ended the year with net debt that was approximately $23 million lower than December 31, 2019. We accomplished this by securing a $135 million capital investment from Crestview Partners, raising $47 million through GES asset dispositions, delivering positive EBITDA across all Pursuit geographies during its peak season, and implementing aggressive cost reductions across the company. Those actions, combined with our credit facility covenant waiver period through September 2022 and the $45 million delayed draw commitment from Crestview, put us on solid financial footing heading into 2021 with the ability to selectively invest in high-return growth projects at Pursuit like FlyOver Las Vegas.”

Moster concluded, “In this challenging and uncertain environment, we remain committed to carefully managing our cash flows and being strong stewards of our capital to maximize shareholder value.”

TABLE ONE - NOTES TO QUARTERLY AND FULL YEAR RESULTS
(UNAUDITED)
 
(A) GES Revenue — 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 on a net basis to reflect only the fees received for arranging these services. 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 twelve months ended December 31, 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, 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 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 2020. 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 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. During 2019, we recorded asset impairment charges of $5.3 million related to our audio-visual production business in the United Kingdom.
 
(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 decrease in net interest expense for the three months ended December 31, 2020 was primarily due to the repayment of a portion of our outstanding revolver balance during the third quarter of 2020. The increase in net interest expense for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 relative to 2019 was primarily due to higher debt balances during the first half of 2020.
 
(H) Income Taxes – The effective rate was negative 4% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 and 10% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019. The negative effective tax rate for the twelve months ended December 31, 2020 was 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. The 10% effective rate for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019 was low primarily due a $4.5 million benefit resulting from the remeasurement of our Alberta deferred tax assets due to a statutory rate reduction.
 
(I) Income (Loss) from Discontinued Operations — Loss from discontinued operations during the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020 was primarily due to a settlement and legal expenses related to previously sold operations. Loss from discontinued operations for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2019 was primarily related to legal expenses, offset in part by a favorable legal settlement related to previously sold operations.

1 When calculating basic income (loss) per share, dividends paid-in-kind on convertible preferred stock are deducted from the reported net income (loss) for the period and there is no adjustment to the number of common shares outstanding to reflect the potential future conversion of the outstanding preferred shares.  When calculating diluted net income (loss) per share, the outstanding preferred shares at the beginning of the period (expressed in common shares as if converted) are added to the common shares outstanding and the dividends paid-in-kind are not deducted from net income (loss); however, the diluted net loss per share cannot be less than the basic net loss per share.  The following table shows the outstanding preferred stock expressed in common shares as if converted:

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.
