Discovery, Inc. Reports Second-Quarter 2021 Results

NEW YORK, Aug. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Discovery, Inc. ("Discovery" or the "Company") /zigman2/quotes/200511275/composite DISCA +3.18% /zigman2/quotes/204961565/composite DISCB -11.57% /zigman2/quotes/201842100/composite DISCK +2.34% today reported financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

David Zaslav , President and Chief Executive Officer of Discovery said, "Discovery delivered very strong results this quarter as we executed well amidst a recovering global advertising market. Advertising revenue increased in every region of the globe and accelerated throughout the quarter, particularly in our International segment as revenue increased 70%.  Indeed, many key markets such as the UK, Italy, Germany, as well as a number of Latam and APAC markets, all demonstrated a marked resurgence and finished ahead of 2019. We continued to steadily execute in our emerging next generation businesses, with 17 million paying direct-to-consumer subscribers at the end of the quarter, and 18 million as of today. This contributed to 130% revenue growth in the second quarter. Our first Summer Olympic Games have thus far been a success, supporting healthy viewing and subscriptions across both our linear and streaming platforms, and underscores the importance of our commitment and investment in marquee IP. We continue to fire on all cylinders, and I am very pleased with our momentum as we work to complete our transformational WarnerMedia transaction."

Second-Quarter 2021 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenues of $3,062 million increased 21% compared to the prior year quarter, or 18% ex-FX. [(1)]

  • Net income available to Discovery, Inc. was $672 million and diluted earnings per share was $1.01.

Second-Quarter 2021

  • Total International Networks revenues increased 40% to $1,093 million, or 31% ex-FX, compared to the prior year quarter.

  • Total operating expenses increased 49% to $878 million, or 37% ex-FX, compared to the prior year quarter.

Free Cash Flow Second quarter 2021 cash provided by operating activities decreased to $834 million from $991 million in the prior year quarter. Free cash flow decreased to $757 million from $879 million, primarily attributable to higher content spend reflecting our direct-to-consumer investments, as well as the return to normal content production levels, partially offset by strong working capital.

Other In June 2021, the Company completed the sale of its Great American Country linear network and recorded a pre-tax gain of $76 million, or $0.09 per diluted share on an after-tax basis on the transaction. Additionally, the Company recorded a pre-tax gain of $82 million, or $0.09 per diluted share on an after-tax basis, related to a fair value adjustment for Sharecare.

Definitions and Sources (1)  Methodology for Calculating Growth Rates Excluding the Impact of Currency Effects: The impact of exchange rates on our business is an important factor in understanding period-to-period comparisons of our results. For example, our international revenues are favorably impacted as the U.S. dollar weakens relative to other foreign currencies, and unfavorably impacted as the U.S. dollar strengthens relative to other foreign currencies. We believe the presentation of results on a constant currency basis ("ex-FX"), in addition to results reported in accordance with GAAP, provides useful information about our operating performance because the presentation ex-FX excludes the effects of foreign currency volatility and highlights our core operating results. The presentation of results on a constant currency basis should be considered in addition to, but not a substitute for, measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP.

The ex-FX change represents the percentage change on a period-over-period basis adjusted for foreign currency impacts. The ex-FX change is calculated as the difference between the current year amounts translated at a baseline rate, which is a spot rate for each of our currencies determined early in the fiscal year as part of our forecasting process (the "2021 Baseline Rate"), and the prior year amounts translated at the same 2021 Baseline Rate.

In addition, consistent with the assumption of a constant currency environment, our ex-FX results exclude the impact of our foreign currency hedging activities, as well as realized and unrealized foreign currency transaction gains and losses. Results on a constant currency basis, as we present them, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

(2)  Adjusted OIBDA and Adjusted OIBDA Excluding the Impact of Currency Effects: The Company evaluates the operating performance of its segments based on financial measures such as revenues and Adjusted OIBDA. Adjusted OIBDA is defined as operating income excluding: (i) employee share-based compensation, (ii) depreciation and amortization, (iii) restructuring and other charges, (iv) certain impairment charges, (v) gains and losses on business and asset dispositions, (vi) certain inter-segment eliminations related to production studios, (vii) third-party transaction and integration costs, and (viii) other items impacting comparability.

The Company uses this measure to assess the operating results and performance of its segments, perform analytical comparisons, identify strategies to improve performance, and allocate resources to each segment. The Company believes Adjusted OIBDA is relevant to investors because it allows them to analyze the operating performance of each segment using the same metric management uses.

The Company excludes share-based compensation, restructuring and other charges, certain impairment charges, gains and losses on business and asset dispositions and acquisition and integration costs from the calculation of Adjusted OIBDA due to their impact on comparability between periods. The Company also excludes the depreciation of fixed assets and amortization of intangible assets, as these amounts do not represent cash payments in the current reporting period. Certain corporate expenses and inter-segment eliminations related to production studios are excluded from segment results to enable executive management to evaluate segment performance based upon the decisions of segment executives. Adjusted OIBDA should be considered in addition to, but not a substitute for, operating income, net income, and other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Refer to the comments in footnote 1 for the methodology used to calculate growth rates excluding foreign currency effects.

(3)  Free Cash Flow: The Company defines free cash flow as cash flow from operations less acquisitions of property and equipment. The Company believes free cash flow is an important indicator for management and investors of the Company's liquidity, including its ability to reduce debt, make strategic investments, and return capital to stockholders.

(4)  Financial Highlights Table:  This table presents a selection of the Company's financial results. Because the table as shown excludes the "Corporate, Inter-segment Eliminations, and Other" operating segment, the row "Total Adjusted OIBDA" will not foot as presented in the table.

(5)  Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) Definitions: Next Generation Revenues:  Subscription and advertising revenues generated from the Company's DTC products, as well as revenues from our TV Everywhere, GO applications and other digital properties.

Direct-to-Consumer Subscriber:  A subscription is 1) a subscription to a direct-to-consumer product for which we have recognized subscription revenue from a direct-to-consumer platform; 2) a subscription received through wholesale arrangements in which we receive a fee for the distribution of our direct-to-consumer platforms, as well as subscriptions provided directly or through third-party platforms; and 3) a subscription recognized by certain joint venture partners and affiliated parties. We may refer to the aggregate number of subscriptions across our direct-to-consumer services as subscribers. A subscriber is only counted if they are on a paying status and excludes users on free trials.

(6)  Source:  Total audience measurement among all individuals. Average viewing audiences is defined as the average number of viewers watching a channel or program at any moment of its duration. The change in viewing audiences is calculated by adjusting the prior year to include any newly acquired channels. Prior year excludes Russia.

(7) Source: Nielsen, Q2 2021 (3/29-6/27/21), Prime (8pm-11pm) & Total Day (Mon-Sun 6am-6am), Live+7, Duration-Weighted Delivery: "Most Watched". Key demographics include: Persons 2+, Households, Adults/Men/Women 18+, Adults/Women 25-54, and Women 18-49. Some networks may include Out-of-Home measurement, effective 8/31/20.

(8)  Source:  Nielsen, Q2 2021 (3/29-6/27/21), Total Day (Mon-Sun 6am-6am), Live+7 time-period data, 6-minute qualifier, Women 25-54, average time spent is 44 hours, total TV claim excludes media companies with less than 10 million Women 25-54 reach. Some networks may include Out-of-Home measurement, effective 8/31/20.

(9)  Source:  Nielsen, Q2 2021 (3/29-6/27/21), Total Day (Mon-Sun 6am-6am), Live+7 program-based data (000s), Women 25-54, excl. breakouts and nets with less than 50% duration per day. Some networks may include Out-of-Home measurement, effective 8/31/20.

(10)  SG&A Expenses: Selling, general and administrative expenses exclude employee share-based compensation and third-party transaction and integration costs.

(11)  2021 Outlook: Discovery does not expect to be able to provide a reconciliation of the non-GAAP forward-looking commentary to comparable GAAP measures as, at this time, the Company cannot determine the occurrence or impact of the adjustments, such as the effect of future changes in foreign currency exchange rates or future acquisitions or divestitures that would be excluded from such GAAP measures.
