Emerald Holding, Inc. (NYSE:EEX) ("Emerald" or the "Company"), a leading U.S. business-to-business platform producer of trade shows, events, conferences and marketing solutions, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020.

Highlights

  • First quarter results negatively impacted by event cancellations due to the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Revenues decreased 27.4% to $99.7 million, compared to $137.4 million for first quarter 2019
    • Cancellation of seven live events due to the COVID-19 crisis represents the loss of $34.3 million in comparable period prior year revenues
    • Postponement of two live events due to the COVID-19 crisis expected to push $3.6 million in comparable period prior year revenues to the second half of 2020
  • Organic revenues, a non-GAAP measure, decreased 2.6% to $95.8 million for the first quarter 2020, compared to $98.4 million for the first quarter 2019 (Refer to Schedule 1 for a reconciliation to revenues, the most directly comparable GAAP measure)
  • Net loss of $570.1 million for the first quarter 2020, compared to net income of $26.5 million for the first quarter 2019

Brian Field, Emerald’s Interim President and Chief Executive Officer said, "We are living in unprecedented times, which has had significant implications across industries given current restrictions on in-person group events. Despite these challenges, I have been deeply impressed by the agility and focus of our teams to support our customers’ needs and innovate new digital product solutions. Through online education, networking and connecting our buying and selling customers, we continue to build and grow our relationships across our industry segments, which I expect will pay long-term dividends when conditions improve. At the same time, our cost-cutting efforts have paid off with an annualized reduction of over $15 million in SG&A and over $30 million in direct cost avoidance to date."

David Doft, Emerald’s Chief Financial Officer, added, "We are very fortunate to have a comprehensive insurance policy which expressly covers event cancellation and postponement as a result of communicable disease, and we are filing claims for all of our impacted shows. We are also working to optimize our operations and cost structure for both the short and long term to ensure we have adequate liquidity to run Emerald for an extended period without any shows staging, while staying in compliance with our financial covenants."

COVID-19 Operational and Expected Insurance Recovery Update

Emerald is focused on the health and safety of its employees and customers given this unprecedented environment. As a result, we have implemented our Business Continuity plan under which all employees have been transitioned to a remote working environment and we are actively engaging the Company’s communities with new on-line offerings and planning for future events.

The rapid spread of COVID-19 has had a material impact on Emerald’s ability to deliver large, in-person experiences which has necessitated substantial changes to the Company’s show calendar. To date, Emerald has canceled 29 events, including ASD March, JA New York, Couture, Retail X, and Outdoor Retailer Summer Market. In total, these events accounted for approximately $118 million of 2019 revenues. Emerald has also postponed 14 events to the second half of 2020, which events accounted for approximately $12 million of 2019 revenues.

Emerald maintains event cancellation insurance which provides coverage for the gross revenues (less avoided costs, plus certain costs relating to the taking of remedial action) for each of the Company’s individual events and conferences occurring within a calendar year, up to an aggregate limit of approximately $191 million per year for each of 2020 and 2021 if losses arise for reasons within the scope of Emerald’s policy. Emerald’s coverage expressly includes losses resulting from the unavoidable cancellation, postponement, change in event venue and enforced reduced attendance due to certain covered causes, one of which is the outbreak of communicable diseases. While there is no assurance that the insurance carriers will agree that all of Emerald’s claims are covered, the Company believes that all shows that have been cancelled or postponed due to COVID-19 to date should qualify as covered losses with respect to this event cancellation insurance policy.

The Company has been preparing and submitting insurance claims for each of its cancelled shows. To date, Emerald has submitted approximately $66 million in claims, which represents the net amount of expected gross revenues less avoided costs for cancelled events, and expects to submit further claims over the next several weeks.

Emerald also continues to analyze a range of initiatives to improve its long-term operating efficiency while also reducing the Company’s cash burn and improving its financial flexibility. The Company has implemented a broad range of cost reduction initiatives, including furloughs and permanent reductions in headcount, to support its ability to manage against these challenges while meeting and complying with its financial obligations and covenants under its credit agreement.

Financial & Operational Results, Quarter Ended March 31, 2020

For the first quarter of 2020, Emerald reported revenues of $99.7 million compared to revenues of $137.4 million for the first quarter of 2019, a decrease of $37.7 million, or 27.4%. The decrease primarily reflected a $34.3 million reduction from the cancellation of seven first quarter events due to the COVID-19 crisis, most notably ASD March, the International Pizza Expo ("Pizza Expo"), and JA Spring, as well as a $3.6 million decline due to the postponement of two first quarter 2020 events to the second half of the year. Discontinued events representing $2.3 million of first quarter 2019 revenues also impacted first quarter 2020 results. The G3 Communications ("G3") acquisition, which closed in the fourth quarter of 2019, contributed $3.9 million of revenue in the first quarter of 2020. Organic revenues for the first quarter of 2020 declined $2.6 million, or 2.6%, as compared to the prior year first quarter.

The Company incurred a net loss of $570.1 million for the first quarter of 2020 compared to net income of $26.5 million for the first quarter of 2019. In the first quarter of 2020, in connection with a triggering event caused by the anticipated impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the travel and events industry, the Company’s forecasted results and the market value of its common stock, the Company performed an interim goodwill impairment assessment and recorded a $564.0 million non-cash charge related to the impairment of goodwill and a $59.4 million non-cash charge related to impairment of certain trade names and customer-relationship intangible assets.

For the first quarter of 2020, Adjusted EBITDA was $23.6 million, compared to $57.5 million for the first quarter of 2019, adjusted for show scheduling differences, including COVID-19 related postponements. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA of $33.9 million was mainly related to the cancellation of seven first quarter events, representing prior year first quarter Adjusted EBITDA of $25.7 million as well as the acceleration of previously deferred expenses related to second quarter events which Emerald was forced to cancel as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. First quarter 2020 Adjusted EBITDA also reflected the combined effect of lower organic revenues, incremental investments in the events that took place in the quarter, and increased marketing costs.

For a discussion of the Company’s presentation of Organic revenues and Adjusted EBITDA, which are non-GAAP measures, see below under the heading "Non-GAAP Financial Information." Refer to Schedule 1 for a reconciliation of Organic revenues to revenues (discussed in the first paragraph of this section), the most directly comparable GAAP measure, and refer to Schedule 2 for a reconciliation of Adjusted EBITDA to net income (discussed in the second paragraph of this section), the most directly comparable GAAP measure.

Cash Flow

Net cash provided by operating activities decreased by $2.8 million to $8.8 million in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $11.6 million in the first quarter of 2019, largely reflecting the Company’s close management of operating cash flows given the challenging circumstances presented by the COVID-19 crisis offset by lower income.

Capital expenditures were $1.1 million for the first quarter of 2020, compared to $0.3 million for the first quarter of 2019.

Free Cash Flow, which the Company defines as net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures, was $7.7 million in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $11.3 million in the first quarter of 2019.

For a discussion of the Company’s presentation of Free Cash Flow, which is a non-GAAP measure, see below under the heading "Non-GAAP Financial Information." Refer to Schedule 4 for a reconciliation of Free Cash Flow to net cash provided by operating activities (discussed in the first paragraph of this section), the most directly comparable GAAP measure.

Suspension of Dividend and Share Repurchase Programs

On March 20, 2020, due to uncertainty caused by the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the travel and events industry, Emerald’s Board of Directors made the decision to temporarily suspend the Company’s regular quarterly cash dividend on its common stock as well as its share repurchase program. The Board of Directors announced that it would re-assess the dividend suspension throughout the year to determine, in light of facts and circumstances at that time, whether and when to reinstate the dividend.

Non-GAAP Financial Information

This press release presents certain "non-GAAP" financial measures. The components of these non-GAAP measures are computed by using amounts that are determined in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). A reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release to their nearest comparable GAAP financial measures is included in the schedules attached hereto.

We define "organic revenue growth" and "organic revenue decline" as the growth or decline, respectively, in our revenue from one period to the next, adjusted for the revenue impact of: (i) acquisitions and dispositions, (ii) discontinued events, (iii) material show scheduling adjustments and (iv) event cancellations for which the Company has received, or expects to receive, claim proceeds from its event cancellation insurance policy. We disclose changes in Organic revenue because we believe it assists investors and analysts in comparing Emerald’s operating performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe provide a fair comparison of the trends underlying our existing event portfolio given changes in timing or strategy. Management and Emerald’s board of directors evaluate changes in Organic revenue to evaluate our historical and prospective financial performance and understand underlying revenue trends of our events.

We use Adjusted EBITDA because we believe it assists investors and analysts in comparing Emerald’s operating performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. Management and Emerald’s board of directors use Adjusted EBITDA to assess our financial performance and believe it is helpful in highlighting trends because it excludes the results of decisions that are outside the control of management, while other measures can differ significantly depending on long-term strategic decisions regarding capital structure, the tax jurisdictions in which we operate, and capital investments. Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered as an alternative to net income as a measure of financial performance or to cash flows from operations as a liquidity measure.

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income before (i) interest expense, (ii) income tax benefit, (iii) depreciation and amortization, (iv) stock-based compensation, (v) deferred revenue adjustment, (vi) goodwill and other intangible asset impairment charge, (vii) material show scheduling adjustments, and (viii) other items that management believes are not part of our core operations.

In addition to net income presented in accordance with GAAP, we present Adjusted Net Income because we believe it assists investors and analysts in comparing our operating performance across reporting periods on a consistent basis by excluding items that we do not believe are indicative of our core operating performance. Our presentation of Adjusted Net Income adjusts net income for (i) stock-based compensation, (ii) deferred revenue, (iii) goodwill and other intangible asset impairment charges, (iv) other items that management believes are not part of our core operations, (v) amortization of deferred financing fees and discount, (vi) amortization of acquired intangible assets and (vii) tax adjustments related to non-GAAP adjustments.

We use Adjusted Net Income as a supplemental metric to evaluate our business’s performance in a way that also considers our ability to generate profit without the impact of certain items.

For example, it is useful to exclude stock-based compensation expenses because the amount of such expenses in any specific period may not directly correlate to the underlying performance of our business, and these expenses can vary significantly across periods due to timing of new stock-based awards. We also exclude professional fees associated with debt refinancing, the amortization of acquired intangible assets and certain discrete costs, including deferred revenue adjustments, impairment charges and transaction costs (including professional fees and other expenses associated with acquisition activity) in order to facilitate a period-over-period comparison of our financial performance. This measure also reflects an adjustment for the difference between cash amounts paid in respect of taxes and the amount of tax recorded in accordance with GAAP. Each of the normal recurring adjustments and other adjustments described in this paragraph help to provide management with a measure of our operating performance over time by removing items that are not related to day-to-day operations or are noncash expenses.

Adjusted Net Income is a supplemental non-GAAP financial measure of operating performance and is not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP. Adjusted Net Income should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to net income, cash flows from operating activities or other measures determined in accordance with GAAP. Also, Adjusted Net Income is not necessarily comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies.

Adjusted Diluted EPS is defined as Adjusted Net Income divided by diluted weighted average common shares outstanding.

We present Free Cash Flow because we believe it is a useful indicator of liquidity that provides information to management and investors about the amount of cash generated from our core operations that, after capital expenditures, can be used to maintain and grow our business, for the repayment of indebtedness, payment of dividends and to fund strategic opportunities. Free Cash Flow is a supplemental non-GAAP measure of liquidity and is not based on any standardized methodology prescribed by GAAP. Free Cash Flow should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to cash flows from operating activities or other measures determined in accordance with GAAP.

Other companies may compute these measures differently. No non-GAAP metric should be considered as an alternative to any other measure derived in accordance with GAAP.
