Brian Field, Emerald’s Interim President and Chief Executive Officer said, "While the events industry has remained extremely challenging across the world, I am pleased with the progress that we have achieved positioning Emerald for the future: staying focused on our strategy, building new customer relationships and continuing to nurture and deliver value to existing clients. Our position is further strengthened by our capital raise which provides us the financial flexibility to accelerate the implementation of strategic initiatives designed to improve all aspects of the customer experience at our shows while also investing in new digital offerings. These digital offerings, which in the second quarter alone delivered more than 50,000 new customer leads, will allow us to engage with our customers year-round while opening new, high-return revenue streams."

David Doft, Emerald’s Chief Financial Officer, added, "We are fortunate to have a comprehensive insurance policy which expressly covers losses due to event cancellation and postponement as a result of communicable disease. Through the second quarter, we have submitted $89.1 million in total claims for events originally scheduled to stage in the first half and have received $48.2 million in initial claim payments. Subsequent to quarter end, we have submitted an additional $6 million of claims for events which were originally scheduled to take place in the third quarter. Additionally, we continue to streamline our expense structure with the goal of driving excess cost out of the Company while improving our operational efficiency and scalability. Year to date, we have removed over $15 million of fixed costs and see further opportunities to improve our profitability at both the Company and show level. Our reduced cost structure in combination with our enhanced liquidity, has positioned Emerald to weather the near-term uncertainty and thrive over the long term."

COVID-19 Operational and Expected Insurance Recovery Update

Emerald remains focused on the health and safety of its employees and customers given this ongoing, unprecedented environment. All employees continue to work in a remote environment and Emerald is actively engaging the Company’s communities with new on-line offerings while 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 cancelled 59 events, and has not staged an in-person event since the middle of March. In total, these cancelled events accounted for approximately $197 million of 2019 revenues. Emerald has also postponed 16 events to the second half of 2020, which events accounted for approximately $8 million of 2019 revenues.

Emerald maintains event cancellation insurance to protect against losses due to the unavoidable cancellation, postponement, relocation and enforced reduced attendance at events due to certain covered causes. Specifically, these causes include event cancellation caused by the outbreak of communicable diseases, including COVID-19. Emerald’s policy provides coverage for the budgeted amount of 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. The aggregate limit under this event cancellation insurance policy is approximately $191.1 million in 2020 and $191.4 million in 2021, if losses arise for reasons within the scope of this policy.

In addition to this primary policy, Emerald maintains a separate event cancellation insurance policy for the Surf Expo Summer 2020 and Surf Expo Winter 2021 shows, with respective coverage limits of $6 million and $7.7 million. While there is no assurance that the insurance carriers will agree that all of Emerald’s claims are covered under these policies, 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 these event cancellation insurance policies.

The Company has been preparing and submitting insurance claims for each of its cancelled shows. For events previously scheduled to take place in the first and second quarters, Emerald has submitted approximately $89.1 million in claims, which represents the net amount of expected gross revenues less avoided costs for cancelled events. Insurance claim payments received to date total $48.2 million, of which $15 million was received in the second quarter and $33.2 million received in the third quarter. Subsequent to quarter end, the Company has submitted an additional $6 million of claims for events which were originally scheduled to take place in the third quarter. The Company expects to submit further claims over the next several weeks representing events cancelled subsequent to June 30, 2020.

Financial & Operational Results, Quarter Ended June 30, 2020

For the second quarter of 2020, Emerald reported revenues of $7.0 million compared to revenues of $103.0 million for the second quarter of 2019, a decrease of $96.0 million, or 93.2%. The decrease primarily reflected an $84.6 million reduction from the cancellation of 20 second quarter events due to the COVID-19 crisis, most notably Outdoor Retailer Summer Market, HD Expo, RetailX and the Couture Collection Show, as well as an $8.0 million decline due to the postponement of eight second quarter 2020 events to the second half of the year. Discontinued events representing $1.1 million of second quarter 2019 revenues also impacted second quarter 2020 results. The G3 Communications ("G3") acquisition, which closed in the fourth quarter of 2019, contributed $1.6 million of revenue in the second quarter of 2020. Organic revenues for the second quarter of 2020 declined $3.1 million, or 36.5%, as compared to the prior year second quarter.

The Company recognized net income of $9.9 million for the second quarter of 2020 compared to net income of $11.4 million for the second quarter of 2019. The Company recorded $48.2 million of Other Income during the second quarter as a result of the confirmation of event cancellation insurance claims related to events cancelled in the first and second quarters.

For the second quarter of 2020, Adjusted EBITDA was $33.2 million, compared to $36.5 million for the second quarter of 2019, adjusted for show scheduling differences, including COVID-19 related postponements. The decrease in Adjusted EBITDA of $3.3 million was mainly due to the COVID-19 related cancellation of 20 second quarter events, representing prior year second quarter Adjusted EBITDA of $56.3 million, offset by the recognition of $48.2 million in Other Income related to event cancellation insurance claims confirmed. Second quarter 2020 Adjusted EBITDA also reflected the combined effect of lower Organic revenues, offset by the cost savings of measures implemented at the onset of the COVID-19 crisis.

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 used in operating activities was $31.4 million in the second quarter of 2020, compared to cash provided by operating activities of $28.4 million in the second quarter of 2019, largely reflecting $27.2 million in refunds paid during the second quarter and the decline in cash receipts due to the cancellation of upcoming events, partially offset by the Company’s close management of operating cash flows given the challenging circumstances presented by the COVID-19 crisis. As a result of refunds paid, as of June 30, 2020, cancelled event liabilities were $45.6 million as compared to $72.1 million at March 31, 2020. Additionally, net cash used in operating activities was impacted by a $33.2 million insurance receivable, which was subsequently received in July.

Capital expenditures were $1.2 million for the second quarter of 2020, compared to $0.6 million for the second quarter of 2019.

Free Cash Flow, which the Company defines as net cash used in or provided by operating activities less capital expenditures, was an outflow of $32.6 million in the second quarter of 2020, compared to an inflow of $27.8 million in the second 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.

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.
