Viad Corp Reports Results for the 2021 Third Quarter


Viad Corp (NYSE: VVI), a leading provider of experiential leisure travel and live events and marketing experiences, today reported financial results for the 2021 third quarter.

Steve Moster, president and chief executive officer, commented, "The third quarter was a pivotal one for our business. Revenue grew to nearly four times the level we experienced in the second quarter and reached 66% of the amount we realized in the pre-pandemic 2019 third quarter. We realized strong flow through to EBITDA and delivered positive operating cash flow that more than offset our investments in capital expenditures."

Moster continued, "With leisure travel continuing to accelerate and events beginning to return to in-person formats, the pandemic recovery has clearly taken hold for both Pursuit and GES. Across Viad, our teams are doing a fantastic job navigating the challenges of the pandemic re-opening to meet the needs of our clients and guests with great service and operational execution."

Third Quarter 2021 Results

Third quarter revenue was $233.6 million, up from $62.8 million in the 2020 third quarter. Third quarter net income attributable to Viad was $15.1 million and our adjusted segment EBITDA* was $55.4 million, as compared to a net loss of $30.8 million and adjusted segment EBITDA* of $8.1 million in the 2020 third quarter. These improvements relative to the prior year primarily reflect continued strengthening of leisure travel and the resumption of in-person event activity as health restrictions are relaxed, borders are re-opened, and people are increasingly more comfortable traveling and gathering.

* 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.

Regarding Pursuit, Moster commented, "At Pursuit, third quarter revenue of $117.6 million reached 87% of the amount generated in the 2019 third quarter, reflecting strong leisure travel demand at our Glacier and Alaska experiences, which draw largely domestic travelers. These destinations experienced exceptionally strong visitation this peak season, with Glacier posting record performance. Additionally, the three new attractions we opened this year, the Sky Lagoon and Golden Skybridge, which opened in the second quarter, and FlyOver Las Vegas, which opened September 1st, are all off to a solid start in this challenging environment. In Canada, the border is now open for all fully-vaccinated international travelers, which bodes well for a much stronger peak season in 2022 across our Canadian experiences."

Regarding GES, Moster commented, "GES' third quarter revenue of $116.0 million increased nearly 370% from the second quarter and reached 53% of the amount generated in the 2019 third quarter. Although the COVID Delta variant caused some event and exhibitor cancellations as we moved into the third quarter, many organizers of in-person events that were scheduled to take place chose to stay the course and were able to hold successful events. We are very encouraged by what we're seeing in terms of in-person event activity going forward, our level of new client wins on the Brand Experiences side of our business, and our ability to service events with our new, leaner operational model."

Cash Flow and Balance Sheet Highlights

Our 2021 third quarter cash flow from operations was an inflow of approximately $37 million and our capital expenditures totaled approximately $20 million, and we paid cash dividends of approximately $2 million on our convertible preferred equity.

Moster commented, "We are very pleased with the strong operating cash flow achieved during the third quarter. Although it was lower than our prior guidance primarily due to the unanticipated impact of the Delta variant, our teams responded well to the shifting demand landscape to maximize our cash generation while prudently investing in new growth areas. Our capital expenditures during the quarter included approximately $8 million for the development of Pursuit's new FlyOver Las Vegas attraction, which opened as planned on September 1st."

At September 30, 2021, our cash and cash equivalents were approximately $111 million and we had approximately $78 million of capacity available on our revolving credit facility ($100 million total facility size, less approximately $22 million in letters of credit). Our debt totaled approximately $470 million, including our $400 million Term Loan B, financing lease obligations of approximately $64 million (which primarily comprises real estate leases at Pursuit), and approximately $6 million in debt at FlyOver Iceland.

Moster concluded, "Our strong liquidity and improving industry fundamentals, combined with the flexibility offered by our new credit facility, put us in a solid position to pursue additional Refresh, Build, Buy investments that will continue to accelerate Pursuit's high-margin growth. Construction of Pursuit's new 88-room hotel in Jasper is progressing well and we expect to have that property open ahead of the 2022 peak season. We continue to work through planning and permitting for our FlyOver Toronto experience, which is targeted to open in 2024. In addition to these growth projects already underway, we remain very active in evaluating other growth investments, including acquisitions in iconic locations and new FlyOver locations."

TABLE ONE - NOTES TO QUARTERLY RESULTS
(UNAUDITED)
 

(A)

GES Revenue ? In 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 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 originally reported revenue to the corrected figures for 2020:

(B)

Corporate Activities ? The increase in corporate activities expense during the three months ended September 30, 2021 was primarily due to an FX impact loss of $0.8 million on the repayment of our Canadian debt and due to lower performance-based compensation expense in 2020 as we reduced our estimated performance achievement to zero as a result of COVID-19. The increase in corporate activities expense during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was primarily due to lower performance-based compensation expense in 2020.
 

(C)

Restructuring Charges ? Restructuring charges during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 were primarily related to facility closures and the elimination of certain positions at GES. 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. Restructuring charges during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 were primarily related to the elimination of certain positions at GES and our corporate office in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as charges related to the closure of GES' United Kingdom-based audio-visual services business during the third quarter of 2020.
 

(D)

Impairment Charges ? Due to the deteriorating macroeconomic environment in 2020 related to the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in disruptions to our operations and the decline in our stock price, we recorded non-cash goodwill impairment charges of $185.8 million, a non-cash impairment charge to intangible assets of $15.7 million related to GES' United States audio-visual production business, and a fixed asset impairment charge of $1.6 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2020. We recorded a fixed asset impairment charge of $0.7 million during the three months ended September 30, 2020.
 

(E)

Net Interest Expense ? The increase in interest expense during the three months ended September 30, 2021 was primarily due to higher interest rates and higher debt balances in 2021. As a result of the refinance and the repayment of the 2018 Credit Facility, we recorded $2.1 million of interest expense related to the write-off of unamortized debt issuance costs during the three months ended September 30, 2021. The increase in interest expense during the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was primarily due to higher debt balances in 2021 and the write-off of unamortized debt issuance costs.
 

(F)

Income Tax Expense ? The effective tax rate was 21% for the three months ended September 30, 2021 and a negative 3% for the three months ended September 30, 2020. The effective tax rate was 0% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 and a negative 7% for the nine months ended September 30, 2020. The effective tax rate for the three months ended September 30, 2021 was the result of income earned in Canada without taxes on income in our jurisdictions with valuation allowances. The rate for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 was lower than the blended statutory rate primarily as a result of excluding the tax benefit on losses recognized in the United States, the United Kingdom, and other European countries where we have a valuation allowance. The negative effective tax rates for 2020 were due to the recording of a valuation allowance against our remaining United States, United Kingdom, and other European countries net deferred tax assets of $25 million, as well as no tax benefits on non-deductible goodwill impairments and losses recognized in those jurisdictions.

(G)

Income (Loss) from Discontinued Operations ? Income from discontinued operations during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2021 was primarily due to a favorable legal settlement and an insurance recovery related to a previously sold operation, offset in part by legal expenses. Loss from discontinued operations during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 was primarily due to legal expenses related to previously sold operations.

1 When calculating basic income (loss) per share and diluted 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 per share, the outstanding preferred shares (as if converted at the beginning of the period) are added to the common shares outstanding and there is no adjustment to the reported net income for any dividends paid in kind. The preferred stock was convertible to 6,674,235 shares of common stock of September 30, 2021.

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 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 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.
