AMC Networks Inc. Reports Second Quarter 2022 Results

AMC Networks Inc.
AMC Networks Inc.

NEW YORK, Aug. 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AMC Networks Inc. (“AMC Networks” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: AMCX) today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Interim Chief Executive Officer Matt Blank said: "AMC Networks delivered a solid second quarter, benefiting from strong subscriber growth for our differentiated streaming services as we execute on our strategy to super-serve passionate audiences with a curated, targeted content experience. We added nearly 1.3 million new subscribers in aggregate across our streaming portfolio, ahead of our forecast, to end the quarter with 10.8 million total paying subscribers. As we leverage our strong linear business, we are seeing increasing demand for our digital and advanced advertising opportunities. And our content creation strengths were on full display in the quarter, with viewership records, widespread critical acclaim for new and returning series including for Better Call Saul and Dark Winds, and Emmy Award nominations across major categories. We are building our business in a steady, disciplined and sustainable fashion, positioning ourselves for future growth and delivering shareholder value."

Operational Highlights:

  • Grew streaming subscribers 46% to 10.8 million subscribers as of June 30, 2022, from 7.4 million in the prior year, driven by the AMC+ premium streaming bundle launch in Spain and strong content offerings

  • Received 12 Emmy nominations, including seven for Better Call Saul

  • Renewed two AMC original series, Moonhaven and Dark Winds, for second seasons

  • Ordered a third new series in The Walking Dead universe, featuring original stars Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira

  • Acquired North American rights to new series Monsieur Spade, from Emmy Winners Scott Frank and Tom Fontana, featuring Clive Owen in the iconic role of Sam Spade, the beloved character created by Dashiell Hammett and featured in The Maltese Falcon

  • Expanded streaming distribution footprint in India with the launch of AMC+ on Amazon Prime Video Channels

Second Quarter Ended June 30, 2022 – Financial Highlights:

  • Net revenues decreased 4% to $738 million as compared to the prior-year. Reported streaming revenues grew 20% and normalized(1) streaming revenues grew 36%, offset by several timing impacts in the quarter, including expected lower affiliate, content licensing, and advertising revenues, and unfavorable foreign exchange translation

  • Operating income increased 125% to $153 million. The prior-year quarter included impairment and other charges of $143 million associated with a one-time litigation-related settlement payment

  • Adjusted Operating Income(2) decreased 22% to $196 million, with a margin of 26%, as compared to the prior-year quarter due to the timing of increased investments in content and marketing to drive subscriber and streaming revenue growth

  • Diluted EPS of $1.91; Adjusted EPS(2) of $2.06

  • Net cash provided by operating activities of $41 million; Free Cash Flow(2) of $7 million

  • On track to achieve long-term subscriber goal of 20 million to 25 million streaming subscribers by 2025, with 10.8 million streaming subscribers as of June 30, 2022

    • Second quarter net streaming subscriber additions of 1.3 million, led by the June 2022 launch of AMC+ in Spain

  • Reaffirming full year 2022 financial outlook of low-single-digit total company revenue growth, Adjusted Operating Income approximately 10% lower than the full year 2021 due to increased strategic content, marketing, and technology investments, and Free Cash Flow of approximately $100 million

(1) Excluding the one-time beneficial impact of a distribution agreement renewal in the prior-year quarter.
(2) See page 4 of this earnings release for a discussion of non-GAAP financial measures used in this release. This discussion includes the definition of Adjusted Operating Income, Adjusted EPS and Free Cash Flow.

Domestic Operations

Second Quarter Results:

  • Domestic Operations' revenues decreased 3% to $621 million compared to the prior-year quarter

    • Distribution and other revenues decreased 2% to $419 million; excluding the one-time beneficial impact of a distribution agreement renewal in the prior-year quarter, distribution and other revenues increased 2%

      • Subscription revenues grew 1% due to increased streaming revenues driven by strong subscriber growth on our streaming services and contractual affiliate rate increases, partially offset by declines in the linear subscriber universe; excluding the one-time beneficial impact of a distribution agreement renewal in the prior-year quarter, subscription revenues increased 5%

        • Reported streaming revenues increased 20%; normalized streaming revenues increased 36%

        • Reported and normalized affiliate revenues declined in the mid-single-digits due to basic subscriber declines

      • Content licensing revenues decreased 13% to $72 million due to the expected timing of deliveries in the quarter

    • Advertising revenues decreased 5% to $202 million due to lower linear ratings, partially offset by higher year-over-year AMC Originals impressions, pricing, and digital growth

  • Operating income increased 114% to $189 million in the quarter, which included impairment and other charges of $143 million associated with a one-time litigation-related settlement payment in the prior-year quarter

  • Adjusted Operating Income, with a margin of 34%, decreased 16% from the prior-year quarter to $209 million, reflecting revenue performance and additional investments in future top-line revenue growth, including content and subscriber acquisition and retention marketing

  • International and Other revenues for the second quarter decreased 9% to $126 million compared to the prior year; excluding the impact of foreign currency translation, revenues decreased 3%

    • Distribution and other revenues decreased 7% to $104 million, primarily due to the unfavorable impact of foreign currency translation at AMCNI; excluding the impact of foreign currency translation, distribution and other revenues decreased 2%

    • Advertising revenues decreased 16% to $22 million primarily due to the unfavorable impact of foreign currency translation; excluding the impact of foreign currency translation, advertising revenues decreased 7%

  • Operating income decreased 29% to $14 million in the quarter, reflecting decreased revenues

Description of Non-GAAP Measures

The Company defines Adjusted Operating Income (Loss), which is a non-GAAP financial measure, as operating income (loss) before share-based compensation expense or benefit, depreciation and amortization, impairment and other charges (including gains or losses on sales or dispositions of businesses), restructuring and other related charges, cloud computing amortization, and including the Company’s proportionate share of adjusted operating income (loss) from majority-owned equity method investees. From time to time, we may exclude the impact of certain events, gains, losses, or other charges (such as significant legal settlements) from AOI that affect our operating performance. Because it is based upon operating income (loss), Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) also excludes interest expense (including cash interest expense) and other non-operating income and expense items. The Company believes that the exclusion of share-based compensation expense or benefit allows investors to better track the performance of the various operating units of the business without regard to the effect of the settlement of an obligation that is not expected to be made in cash.

The Company believes that Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) is an appropriate measure for evaluating the operating performance of the business segments and the Company on a consolidated basis. Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) and similar measures with similar titles are common performance measures used by investors, analysts, and peers to compare performance in the industry.

Internally, the Company uses net revenues and Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) measures as the most important indicators of its business performance and evaluates management’s effectiveness with specific reference to these indicators. Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) should be viewed as a supplement to and not a substitute for operating income (loss), net income (loss), and other measures of performance presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"). Since Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) is not a measure of performance calculated in accordance with GAAP, this measure may not be comparable to similar measures with similar titles used by other companies. For a reconciliation of operating income (loss) to Adjusted Operating Income (Loss), please see pages 7-8 of this release.

The Company defines Free Cash Flow, which is a non-GAAP financial measure, as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures and cash distributions to noncontrolling interests, all of which are reported in our Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows. The Company believes the most comparable GAAP financial measure of its liquidity is net cash provided by operating activities. The Company believes that Free Cash Flow is useful as an indicator of its overall liquidity, as the amount of Free Cash Flow generated in any period is representative of cash that is available for debt repayment, investment, and other discretionary and non-discretionary cash uses. The Company also believes that Free Cash Flow is one of several benchmarks used by analysts and investors who follow the industry for comparison of its liquidity with other companies in the industry, although the Company’s measure of Free Cash Flow may not be directly comparable to similar measures reported by other companies. For a reconciliation of net cash provided by operating activities to Free Cash Flow, please see page 9 of this release.

The Company defines Adjusted Earnings per Diluted Share (“Adjusted EPS”), which is a non-GAAP financial measure, as earnings per diluted share excluding the following items: amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets; impairment and other charges (including gains or losses on sales or dispositions of businesses); non-cash impairments of goodwill, intangible and fixed assets; restructuring and other related charges; and gains and losses related to the extinguishment of debt; as well as the impact of taxes on the aforementioned items. The Company believes the most comparable GAAP financial measure is earnings per diluted share. The Company believes that Adjusted EPS is one of several benchmarks used by analysts and investors who follow the industry for comparison of its performance with other companies in the industry, although the Company’s measure of Adjusted EPS may not be directly comparable to similar measures reported by other companies. For a reconciliation of earnings per diluted share to Adjusted EPS, please see pages 10-11 of this release.
