iHeartCommunications, Inc. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

 

 

NOTE 1 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION

Preparation of Interim Financial Statements

All references in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q to the “Company,” “we,” “us” and “our” refer to iHeartCommunications, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries.  The Company’s reportable segments are iHeartMedia (“iHM”), Americas outdoor advertising (“Americas outdoor” or “Americas outdoor advertising”) and International outdoor advertising (“International outdoor” or “International outdoor advertising”). 

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements were prepared by the Company pursuant to the rules and regulations of the SEC and, in the opinion of management, include all normal and recurring adjustments necessary to present fairly the results of the interim periods shown. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) have been condensed or omitted pursuant to such SEC rules and regulations. Management believes that the disclosures made are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. Due to seasonality and other factors, the results for the interim periods may not be indicative of results for the full year.  The financial statements contained herein should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s 2014 Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

We are a holding company and have no significant assets other than the ownership interests in our subsidiaries. All of our operations and all of our operating assets are held by our subsidiaries.  Certain of our outstanding indebtedness is fully and unconditionally guaranteed on a joint and several basis by our parent, iHeartMedia Capital I, LLC (“Capital I”), and certain of our direct and indirect wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries.  Not all of our subsidiaries guarantee our obligations under such outstanding indebtedness.  For a presentation of the allocation of assets, liabilities, equity, revenues and expenses attributable to the guarantors of our indebtedness in conformity with the SEC’s Regulation S-X Rule 3-10(d), please refer to Note 10 to the consolidated financial statements of Capital I as of and for the period ending September 30, 2015.

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries.  Also included in the consolidated financial statements are entities for which the Company has a controlling financial interest or is the primary beneficiary.  Investments in companies in which the Company owns 20% to 50% of the voting common stock or otherwise exercises significant influence over operating and financial policies of the company are accounted for under the equity method.  All significant intercompany transactions are eliminated in the consolidation process.  Certain prior-period amounts have been reclassified to conform to the 2015 presentation.

 

During the first quarter of 2015, in connection with the appointment of the new chief executive officer for Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. (“CCOH”), an indirect non-wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, and a new chief executive officer for the Americas outdoor business, the Company reevaluated its segment reporting and determined that its Latin American operations should be managed by its Americas outdoor leadership team.  As a result, the operations of Latin America are no longer reflected within the Company’s International outdoor segment and are included in the results of its Americas outdoor segment.  In addition, the Company reorganized a portion of its national representation business such that the cost of sales personnel for iHM radio stations are now included in the iHM segment and its national representation business no longer charges iHM for intercompany cost allocations.  Accordingly, the Company has recast the corresponding segment disclosures for prior periods to include Latin America within the Americas outdoor segment and has also recast the corresponding segment disclosures to reflect internal representation services as direct expenses of iHM.

 

The Company is a Texas corporation with all of its common stock being held by Capital I.  All of Capital I’s interests are held by iHeartMedia Capital II, LLC, a direct, wholly-owned subsidiary of iHeartMedia, Inc. (“Parent”). Parent was formed in May 2007 by private equity funds sponsored by Bain Capital Partners, LLC and Thomas H. Lee Partners, L.P. (together, the “Sponsors”) for the purpose of acquiring the business of the Company.

 

Omission of Per Share Information

Net loss per share information is not presented as Capital I owns 100% of the Company’s common stock. The Company does not have any publicly traded common stock.

 

New Accounting Pronouncements

During the first quarter of 2015, the Company adopted the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) ASU No. 2014-08, Presentation of Financial Statements (Topic 205) and Property, Plant, and Equipment (Topic 360), Reporting Discontinued

The update is effective for annual periods beginning on or after 15 December 2014 and interim periods within those years.  The adoption of this guidance did not have a material effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

During the first quarter of 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-02, Consolidation (Topic 810), Amendments to the Consolidation Analysis. This new standard eliminates the deferral of FAS 167, which has allowed entities with interest in certain investment funds to follow the previous consolidation guidance in FIN 46(R) and makes other changes to both the variable interest model and the voting model. The standard is effective for annual periods, and for interim periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2015.  The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the provisions of this new standard on its financial position and results of operations.

 

During the second quarter of 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-03, Interest-Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30): Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs. This update requires entities to present debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that direct debt liability.  The standard is effective for annual periods, and for interim periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2015.  The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the provisions of this new standard on its financial position and results of operations.

 

During the third quarter of 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-14, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Deferral of the Effective Date. This update provides a one-year deferral of the effective date for ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers.  ASU No. 2014-09 provides guidance for the recognition, measurement and disclosure of revenue resulting from contracts with customers and will supersede virtually all of the current revenue recognition guidance under U.S. GAAP.  The standard is effective for the first interim period within annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017.  The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the provisions of this new standard on its financial position and results of operations.

 

During the third quarter of 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-16, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Simplifying the Accounting for Measurement-Period Adjustments. This update eliminates the requirement for an acquirer in a business combination to account for measurement-period adjustments retrospectively. Instead, acquirers must recognize measurement-period adjustments during the period in which they determine the amounts, including the effect on earnings of any amounts they would have recorded in previous periods if the accounting had been completed at the acquisition date. The standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015, and interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of the provisions of this new standard on its financial position and results of operations.

  

 

NOTE 2 – Property, plant and equipment, INTANGIBLE ASSETS AND GOODWILL

Dispositions

During the first quarter of 2015, the Company sold two office buildings located in San Antonio, Texas for $34.3 million.  Concurrently with the sale of these properties, the Company entered into lease agreements for the continued use of the buildings, pursuant to which the Company will have annual lease payments of $2.6 million.  The Company recognized a gain of $8.1 million on the sale of one of the buildings, which is being recognized over the term of the lease. 

 

On December 11, 2014, Parent announced that its subsidiary had entered into an agreement with Vertical Bridge Holdings, LLC (“Vertical Bridge”) for the sale of up to 411 of our broadcast communications tower sites.  On April 3, 2015, an affiliate of Parent and certain of the Company’s subsidiaries completed the first closing for the sale of 367 of the Company’s broadcast communications tower sites and related assets for $369.2 million. Simultaneous with the sale, the Company entered into lease agreements for the continued use of 360 of the towers sold.  Upon completion of the transaction, the Company realized a net gain of $207.2 million, of which $108.1 million will be deferred and recognized over the lease term.  On July 16, 2015, Parent and certain of the Company’s subsidiaries completed the second closing for the sale of an additional nine of the Company’s broadcast communication tower sites and related assets for approximately $5.9 million. Simultaneous with the sale, the Company entered into lease agreements for the continued use of seven of the towers sold.  Upon completion of the second closing, the Company realized a net gain of $4.4 million, of which $1.7 million will be deferred and recognized over the lease term.  The Company incurred $5.2 million and $10.2 million in operating lease expense in relation to these agreements in the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015, respectively.  The leases entered into as a part of these transactions are for a term of fifteen years and include three optional five-year renewal periods.

Indefinite-lived Intangible Assets

The Company’s indefinite-lived intangible assets consist of Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) broadcast licenses in its iHM segment and billboard permits in its Americas outdoor advertising segment. Due to significant differences in both business practices and regulations, billboards in the International outdoor advertising segment and in Latin America are subject to long-term, finite contracts, unlike the Company’s permits in the United States and Canada. Accordingly, there are no indefinite-lived intangible assets in the International outdoor advertising segment.

 

Annual Impairment Test to FCC Licenses and Billboard Permits

Historically, the Company performed its annual impairment test on indefinite-lived intangible assets as of October 1 of each year.  Beginning in the third quarter of 2015, the Company began performing its annual impairment test on July 1 of each year.  

 

The impairment tests for indefinite-lived intangible assets consist of a comparison between the fair value of the indefinite-lived intangible asset at the market level with its carrying amount.  If the carrying amount of the indefinite-lived intangible asset exceeds its fair value, an impairment loss is recognized equal to that excess.  After an impairment loss is recognized, the adjusted carrying amount of the indefinite-lived asset is its new accounting basis.  The fair value of the indefinite-lived asset is determined using the direct valuation method as prescribed in ASC 805-20-S99.  Under the direct valuation method, the fair value of the indefinite-lived assets is calculated at the market level as prescribed by ASC 350-30-35. The Company engaged Corporate Valuation Consulting LLC (formerly a Mesirow Financial Consulting Practice), a third-party valuation firm, to assist it in the development of the assumptions and the Company’s determination of the fair value of its indefinite-lived intangible assets.

 

The application of the direct valuation method attempts to isolate the income that is properly attributable to the indefinite-lived intangible asset alone (that is, apart from tangible and identified intangible assets and goodwill).  It is based upon modeling a hypothetical “greenfield” build-up to a “normalized” enterprise that, by design, lacks inherent goodwill and whose only other assets have essentially been paid for (or added) as part of the build-up process.  The Company forecasts revenue, expenses, and cash flows over a ten-year period for each of its markets in its application of the direct valuation method.  The Company also calculates a “normalized” residual year which represents the perpetual cash flows of each market.  The residual year cash flow was capitalized to arrive at the terminal value of the licenses in each market.

 

Under the direct valuation method, it is assumed that rather than acquiring indefinite-lived intangible assets as part of a going concern business, the buyer hypothetically develops indefinite-lived intangible assets and builds a new operation with similar attributes from scratch.  Thus, the buyer incurs start-up costs during the build-up phase which are normally associated with going concern value.  Initial capital costs are deducted from the discounted cash flow model which results in value that is directly attributable to the indefinite-lived intangible assets.

 

The key assumptions using the direct valuation method are market revenue growth rates, market share, profit margin, duration and profile of the build-up period, estimated start-up capital costs and losses incurred during the build-up period, the risk-adjusted discount

rate and terminal values.  This data is populated using industry normalized information representing an average FCC license or billboard permit within a market.

 

The Company recognized an impairment charge related to its indefinite-lived intangible assets of $21.6 million during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015. 

 

Other Intangible Assets

Other intangible assets include definite-lived intangible assets and permanent easements.  The Company’s definite-lived intangible assets include primarily transit and street furniture contracts, talent and representation contracts, customer and advertiser relationships, and site-leases, all of which are amortized over the respective lives of the agreements or over the period of time the assets are expected to contribute directly or indirectly to the Company’s future cash flows. Permanent easements are indefinite-lived intangible assets which include certain rights to use real property not owned by the Company.  The Company periodically reviews the appropriateness of the amortization periods related to its definite-lived intangible assets.  These assets are recorded at cost.

 

The following table presents the gross carrying amount and accumulated amortization for each major class of other intangible assets as of September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively:

Annual Impairment Test to Goodwill

Historically, the Company performed its annual impairment test on goodwill as of October 1 of each year.  Beginning in the third quarter of 2015, the Company began performing its annual impairment test on July 1 of each year.  

 

Each of the Company’s U.S. radio markets and outdoor advertising markets are components.  The U.S. radio markets are aggregated into a single reporting unit and the U.S. outdoor advertising markets are aggregated into a single reporting unit for purposes of the goodwill impairment test using the guidance in ASC 350-20-55.  The Company also determined that each country within its Americas outdoor segment and International outdoor segment constitutes a separate reporting unit.

The goodwill impairment test is a two-step process. The first step, used to screen for potential impairment, compares the fair value of the reporting unit with its carrying amount, including goodwill. If applicable, the second step, used to measure the amount of the impairment loss, compares the implied fair value of the reporting unit goodwill with the carrying amount of that goodwill.

 

Each of the Company’s reporting units is valued using a discounted cash flow model which requires estimating future cash flows expected to be generated from the reporting unit and discounting such cash flows to their present value using a risk-adjusted discount rate.  Terminal values were also estimated and discounted to their present value.  Assessing the recoverability of goodwill requires the Company to make estimates and assumptions about sales, operating margins, growth rates and discount rates based on its budgets, business plans, economic projections, anticipated future cash flows and marketplace data.  There are inherent uncertainties related to these factors and management’s judgment in applying these factors.

 

The Company concluded no goodwill impairment charge was required for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2015 and the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014.

 

The following table presents the changes in the carrying amount of goodwill in each of the Company’s reportable segments:

NOTE 4 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

The Company and its subsidiaries are involved in certain legal proceedings arising in the ordinary course of business and, as required, have accrued an estimate of the probable costs for the resolution of those claims for which the occurrence of loss is probable and the amount can be reasonably estimated.  These estimates have been developed in consultation with counsel and are based upon an analysis of potential results, assuming a combination of litigation and settlement strategies.  It is possible, however, that future results of operations for any particular period could be materially affected by changes in the Company’s assumptions or the effectiveness of the Company’s strategies related to these proceedings.  Additionally, due to the inherent uncertainty of litigation, there can be no assurance that the resolution of any particular claim or proceeding would not have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition or results of operations.

 

Although the Company is involved in a variety of legal proceedings in the ordinary course of business, a large portion of the Company’s litigation arises in the following contexts: commercial disputes; defamation matters; employment and benefits related claims; governmental fines; intellectual property claims; and tax disputes.

 

Los Angeles Litigation

In 2008, Summit Media, LLC, one of the Company’s competitors, sued the City of Los Angeles (the “City”), Clear Channel Outdoor, Inc. (“CCOI”) and OUTFRONT Media Inc. (formerly CBS Outdoor Americas Inc.) in Los Angeles Superior Court (Case No. BS116611) challenging the validity of a settlement agreement that had been entered into in November 2006 among the parties and pursuant to which CCOI had taken down existing billboards and converted 83 existing signs from static displays to digital displays.  In 2009, the Los Angeles Superior Court ruled that the settlement agreement constituted an ultra vires act of the City, and nullified its existence.  After further proceedings, on April 12, 2013, the Los Angeles Superior Court invalidated 82 digital modernization permits issued to CCOI (77 of which displays were operating at the time of the ruling) and CCOI was required to turn off the electrical power to all affected digital displays on April 15, 2013.  The digital display structures remain intact but digital displays are currently prohibited in the City.  CCOI is seeking permits under the existing City sign code to either wrap the LED faces with vinyl or convert the LED faces to traditional static signs and has obtained a number of such permits.  CCOI is also pursuing a new ordinance to permit digital signage in the City.

 

International Outdoor Investigation

 

On April 21, 2015, inspections were conducted at the premises of Clear Channel in Denmark and Sweden as part of an investigation by Danish competition authorities.  Additionally, on the same day, Clear Channel UK received a communication from the UK competition authorities, also in connection with the investigation by Danish competition authorities. Clear Channel and its affiliates are cooperating with the national competition authorities.
