Time Out Group plc

("Time Out", the "Company" or the "Group")

Unaudited results for the six months ended 30 June 2020

Time Out Group plc, the global media and leisure business, today announces its unaudited results for the six months ended 30 June 2020. The results reflect a period of significant disruption as a consequence of the enforced closure of leisure venues and travel restrictions in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Financial Highlights

· Prior to the escalation of the COVID-19 pandemic the Group was performing in line with our expectations; digital advertising and the recently expanded Time Out Market estate continued the trading momentum established in 2019

· Gross revenue (1) decline of 24% to £20.3m (2019: £26.9m) and net revenue decline of 36% to £15.8m (2019: £24.7m) due to the temporary closure of the Time Out Markets and the sharp decline in advertising revenues generated from the travel and leisure sectors

· Gross margin (2) increase of 7 percentage points to 78% (2019: 71%), despite Group gross profit decline of 19% to £12.4m, reflecting Time Out Media's higher digital revenue mix

· Group adjusted EBITDA loss (3) of £8.8m (2019: £4.5m), includes the partial benefit of the cost reduction initiatives implemented in the period

· Group operating loss increase to £13.6m (2019: £8.6m)

· Funding: Successful equity placing raised gross proceeds of £47.1m to strengthen the Company's balance sheet in the wake of the impact of COVID-19 and redeem £24m of loan notes

· Cash of £22.5m at 30 June 2020 and debt of £22.0m, resulted in adjusted net cash(4) of £0.5m. Reported net debt was £32.7m including £33.2m of IFRS 16 lease liabilities

· Outlook: The duration and scale of the continued impact of COVID-19 and the measures required to curb it are unknown. However, the Group has taken funding, cost and operating initiatives to ensure it emerges stronger from this period of disruption

 

Operational Highlights

· The Group's global brand audience increased by 29% to a monthly average of 73.3m (2019: 57.0m), reflecting the authority and continued relevance of Time Out's content, which seeks to champion virtual culture, food and drink, and community during periods of lockdown 

· Time Out Market locations were closed by 16 March 2020 in response to COVID-19 outbreaks and the subsequent local government guidelines and remained closed for the remainder of the period

· Accelerated development and launch of the Time Out Market app has enabled contactless transactions with order & pay at table, home delivery and collection

· Lisbon, New York, Chicago, Boston and Montreal have now safely re-opened post period end, with Miami expected to re-open in Q4 2020

· Time Out Media faced significant delays to advertising spend

· Creative Solutions initiated recovery as global consumer brands launched digital campaigns

· First post-lockdown magazine published in August, with more following as advertising allows return to print in the UK and Spain

Commenting on the results, Julio Bruno, CEO of Time Out Group plc, said:

"2020 will be remembered as the year the world stood still and we stopped going out. I am proud that a company so focused on being out and about in the world's greatest cities was able to adapt and innovate so quickly, remaining relevant with both consumers and advertisers. Our early pivot to Time-In allowed us to create new content that engaged our global audience from home and develop new business opportunities from e-commerce to digital advertising."

 

"Our Time Out Markets closed in mid-March but our teams continued to innovate resulting in the launch of our Time Out Market app, which facilitates contactless transactions, order & pay at table, takeaway and delivery. We redesigned our Markets to create enjoyable, COVID-safe environments, where we still offer the best food and cultural experiences in the city that both our Chefs and consumers are keen to return to."

 

"The combination of a successful fundraising, a cost-reduction programme and further strategic initiatives will support Time Out as it emerges from this  period of COVID-led disruption with a stronger global brand, a larger audience, and a higher operating margin. Landlords and developers around the world are approaching us, more than ever, to explore the roll-out of more Time Out Markets, a testament to the enduring value of our brand."

(3)  Time Out Market Miami and New York opened in May 2019 and Boston opening in June 2019.  Therefore net revenue is not directly comparable to H1 2019

(4)  Adjusted EBITDA is stated before interest, taxation, depreciation, amortisation, share based payments, share of associate's loss and exceptional items. It also includes £3.5m of property lease costs which, under IFRS 16, is replaced by depreciation and interest charges (see note 4)

 

The period started in line with our expectations, with the Group building on the transformative prior year, which most notably produced positive Group adjusted EBITDA in H2 2019.  The five newly opened Time Out Markets ('Market') in North America were enjoying growing footfall and the performance of Time Out Media ('Media') continued to improve. However, the period ended with all Market operations closed and Media operations substantially curtailed as a result of the world-wide lockdowns in response to COVID-19 pandemic.

The Group's net revenue decline of 36% to £15.8m (2019: £24.7m) was primarily driven by Media, as travel and leisure advertising campaigns were postponed, resulting in the temporary suspension of all print editions.  Market revenue year-on-year is not comparable as new markets first opened in May 2019.  The prior period principally comprises the operation of Time Out Market Lisbon. 

As expected, adjusted EBITDA decreased sharply due to the fall in revenue. In response to the impact on trading the Group took action to manage the impact on cash. All 2020 salary increases were reversed, all 2020 bonus schemes were cancelled, up to 30% of staff were furloughed across the Group and the senior management team took a temporary pay cut of 25%. Within the Market division immediate cash savings were identified through a focused review of contracts with all non-essential spending suspended and all material lease agreements reviewed with the landlords to secure rent deferrals.  The Group successfully completed an equity placing raising gross proceeds of £47.1m to strengthen the balance sheet and all capital expenditure related to the Time Out Market roll-out has been delayed until 2021.

(1)  Global brand audience is the estimated monthly average in the period including all owned & operated cities and franchises. It has been redefined to include print circulation, unique website visitors, unique social users (as reported by Facebook and Instagram with social followers on other platforms used as a proxy for unique users), social followers (for other social media platforms), opted in members and Market visitors. 

(2)  Total transaction value across all Time Out Markets including food, drink and other retail sales

 

Maintaining and growing our global brand audience is a key objective of the Group.  The pandemic presented a significant challenge to our ability to reach and strengthen engagement with our audience. In response to residential containment we pivoted the brand to Time In, launched an e-magazine and created a community to share unique daily information of virtual resources available in cities. This helped to grow our global audience by 29% to 73.3m year-on-year despite the suspension of print publications and market closures.

Our social media followers increased by 59% to a monthly average of 42.9m (2019: 27.0m). Return visitors to our sites increased and share count increased five-fold demonstrating an effective global cross posting strategy.  This was in part driven by collaborations with social platforms, for example Inside Voices on Instagram invited New York and London locals to share talent videos, while the Love Local campaign particularly resonated with our audience who were spending more time in local neighbourhoods.

Our website traffic increased by 10% to a monthly average of 25.2m (2019: 22.9m), which in turn will drive programmatic and display advertising as marketing budgets return. 

Circulation decreased by 57% as all print editions ceased in late March.  The first post-lockdown magazine was published in August, encouragingly attracting repeat advertising clients. The decline in Time Out Market visitors and TTV is a direct result of market closures.

The period started with performance in line with our expectations. Lisbon continued to grow footfall and average spend despite its relative maturity and the five newly opened Markets were gaining further traction with locals and receiving growing plaudits. By 16 March however, in response to the global efforts to contain the spread of COVID-19, all markets were temporarily closed as we focussed on the wellbeing and safety of our employees, guests, concessionaires and their teams. 

As outlined above, in response to closures, immediate cost saving initiatives were introduced to help  mitigate the revenue lost. We engaged in productive discussions with our landlords and are appreciative of their on-going support through partial deferrals of rent.  While this still results in an accounting rent charge within Market adjusted EBITDA, the agreements afford some cash preservation as the markets re-open and revert to a normal level of operation.

COVID-19 has proven to be a catalyst for the acceleration of initiatives already in the pipeline, most notably the development and launch of the Market app that facilities contactless transactions, order and payment at tables, collection and home delivery via third party fulfilment.

Chefs and consumers alike have been keen to return to the Time Out Markets since reopening, demonstrating that the scale and layout of well-ventilated venues is well suited to allow social distancing in an enjoyable environment. The markets have been adapted to include distanced seating plans, table partitioning, cashier shields and sanitisation teams. As a result of these measures and government restrictions being lifted, Lisbon and Montreal Markets reopened in July followed by New York, Boston and Chicago in August. We currently expect the Miami market to reopen in Q4.

There are five previously announced and contracted sites, where progress is being made towards opening. Although they may be subject to further COVID-19 related delays, the current scheduled timings are:

· London Waterloo (owned & operated) - currently expected to open in H1 2022

· Porto (owned & operated) - currently expected to open in Q4 2021

· London Spitalfields (owned & operated) - Listed Building consent application has been submitted and the Group awaits the outcome.

· Dubai (management agreement) - construction has now re-started following a COVID related pause and is currently expected to open in Q1 2022

· Prague (management agreement) - expected opening date in 2023

 

Time Out's unique curated markets show-casing the best of each city, hold particular appeal for retail real estate owners, as they seek solutions to generating high and consistent footfall.  As a result, we are actively reviewing a growing pipeline of proposals from landlords around the world. Following the success of Montreal, management agreements are an increased strategic focus, especially given that these projects require no capital outlay and provide long-term visibility over guaranteed revenue and EBITDA.

The pattern of performance has been repeated in the Media division. A year that started in line with expectations driven by continued growth in digital advertising, has been severely impacted by the pandemic, the subsequent lockdowns and travel restrictions. Most major advertisers, especially in travel and leisure have paused material media spend and await greater certainty with regards freedom of movement and consumer sentiment.

In response to COVID-19 we implemented the cost saving measures outlined above and suspended all print publications.  The brand and its content pivoted to "Time In" allowing the Company to remain relevant to and engaged with our home-bound audience. Becoming a pure-play digital publisher improved the revenue mix and drove a ten-percentage point increase in gross margin. 

Programmatic revenue, which remains a key element of our digital performance, was hampered in the period as supply exceeded demand and our audience transitioned to increased mobile usage with a lower average yield.  Our terms with each programmatic partner were critically assessed to ensure maximum revenue from our inventory and the ability to offer more innovative and engaging formats on mobile devices. 

The appeal of our integrated Creative Solutions offering helped deliver key campaigns during this challenging period.  This included PayPal where we created a digital microsite to help users explore elements of lock-down that could be retained, with users pledging to 'Keep the change' via social media.  For Uber Eats, in conjunction with the Love Local editorial campaign to support London's food, drink, culture and entertainment businesses, we created a digital offering including a 25% discount on food when ordering via the Uber Eats app.

The first post lock down magazine was published on 11 August, paying homage to our founder Tony Elliott, with more following as advertising aided the return of print editions in the UK and Spain.  Encouragingly we are beginning to attract larger campaigns again with blue-chip consumer brands, albeit the recovery of global advertising spend post-lockdown has been slow and inconsistent. 

 

 

Financial Review

 

Group gross revenue for the period decreased by 24% to £20.3m (2019: £26.9m).  While the period started in line with our expectations, overall revenue has been impacted due to COVID-19.

Group gross profit decreased by only 19% in the period, benefitting from the improvement in gross margin (as a percentage of net revenue) from 71% to 78%.  This seven percentage-point gain was primarily driven by Media revenue mix, which was skewed to higher margin digital operations, with gross margin of 75% (2019: 65%).  Time Out Market gross margin declined from 86% to 83%.

 

Operating expenses

Adjusted operating expenses decreased by 5% to £21.1m (2019: 22.1m).  Market adjusted operating expenses increased by £3.1m with the increase in trading operating expenditure (£5.4m) being offset by a decrease in pre-opening costs and central costs (£2.3m).  This is driven by having five markets open in Q1 2020 compared to only Time Out Market Lisbon in the prior period.  This increase was partially offset by Media, which reduced its operating costs by 25% to £11.0m.  Corporate costs also decreased 41% to 0.5m (2019: £0.9m).  This overall decrease in Group-wide operating expenses was part of a focussed cost savings exercise which included a review of contracts with all non-essential spending suspended and all material lease agreements reviewed with landlords to secure savings.  In addition, all 2020 salary increases were reversed, all 2020 bonus schemes were cancelled, and the senior management team took a 25% temporary cut.  The Group also took advantage of government support schemes including the UK Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme with up to 30% of staff furloughed across the Group.

 

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is stated before interest, taxation, depreciation, amortisation, share-based payments, share of associate's losses and exceptional items. Although IFRS 16 has been applied in the period, the £3.6m cost of property leases has been included in the operating expenses discussed above, as the Board believes it provides a fairer reflection of the operating margins of the business.  The 93% decrease in Group adjusted EBITDA to a £8.8m loss (2018: £4.5 loss) was driven by the reduced revenue and costs described above.

 

Corporate costs also decreased by £0.3m due to staff cost reductions.

 

Operating loss

The reported operating loss was £13.6m (2019: £8.6m), a 60% increase year-on-year, and includes an additional net benefit of £1.7m (2019: £0.2m net charge) - comprising the saving of £3.5m (2019: £1.1m) of property lease costs (previously reported in operating expenditure), offset by £1.8m (2019: £1.3m) of incremental depreciation on the right-of-use asset created in relation to these property leases. 

 

The net exceptional costs of £0.2m primarily relate to professional fees incurred in the settlement of the Oakley Capital Investments Limited ('OCI') loan notes in June 2020 and the write-off of the related deferred financing costs.

 

The depreciation charge of £5.4m (2019: 2.3m) increased by £3.1m, driven principally by the additional depreciation of new market openings (£2.6m) and the depreciation charge of £1.8m (2019: £1.3m) recognised on right-of-use assets.

 

The amortisation of intangible assets of £2.2m (2019: £2.2m) includes £1.1m (2019: £1.1m) relating to acquired intangible assets and £1.1m (2019: £1.1m) relating to other intangible assets, primarily acquired and internally developed software.

 

Net finance costs

Net finance costs of £4.4m (2019: 3.4m) primarily relates to interest on debt of £2.4m (2019: £2.1m), coupled with the foreign exchange loss on financial liabilities of £0.2m (2019: £0.1m loss), and the amortisation of deferred financing costs of £0.1m (2019: £0.1m).  In addition, the interest costs in respect of lease liabilities was £1.9m (2019: 1.2m).

 

Foreign exchange

The revenue and costs of Group entities reporting in dollars have been consolidated in these financial statements at an average exchange rate of $1.27 (2019: $1.30). The operations reporting in euros have been consolidated at a rate of €1.15 (2019: €1.14).

Cash and cash equivalents increased by £9.1m (2019: £14.6m decrease).  The most significant movements relate to net inflows from the equity raise in June 2020 of £45.9m and the subsequent settlement in full of the OCI loan notes of £24.4m (including interest of £4.4m).  Capital expenditure related primarily to the final construction and fit out costs of the Chicago market and essential re-fit costs in advance of anticipated market re-openings, a material decrease from £20.3m in the prior period. Media invested a further £0.9m in capitalised software development costs relating to the teams working on the Group's digital platforms.

Cash used in operations of £3.8m (2019: £2.3m) was driven by the EBITDA loss and a net working capital inflow of £1.6m (2019: £1.3m).  Working capital benefitted from one-off cash inflows related to government COVID-19 support loans of £1.0m in the period.  

Borrowings now comprises principally the Incus facility which was £20.6m at period end. In June 2020, the Incus facility was revised to defer capital and interest payments due in June 2020 and November 2020 to November 2021, with the next covenant testing date extended to 31 December 2021.

Cash utilisation continues to be closely monitored, particularly in light of the potential for further restrictions being imposed in response to COVID-19 infection rates. The consequence of repeated periods of containment is the restriction of the Group's ability to operate and may result in the need to secure additional medium-term funding.  Further information is included in note 1 to these condensed financial statements.

 

 

Outlook

 

We are operating in an environment of rapidly changing circumstances, with the full impact of COVID-19 being dependent on the duration and severity of the virus and the response by governments and consumers alike. As such, it is not possible to provide a precise outlook for the rest of the current financial year.

However the Board believes that, following the successful refinancing, a cost reduction programme and further strategic initiatives, the Group will emerge, following the immediate impact of COVID-19, with a stronger brand, a larger audience and a higher operating margin and will be well positioned to continue the successful Time Out Markets roll-out which transformed the Group in 2019. In the meantime, the pipeline of new Time Out Market management agreements continues to grow as landlords worldwide search for much needed proven concepts and footfall generators and that increase the appeal of their real estate.

Notes to the condensed consolidated statements

1.  Basis of preparation

The unaudited condensed interim consolidated financial information for the six months ended 30 June 2020 has been prepared following the recognition and measurement principles of IFRS as adopted by the European Union. The condensed interim consolidated financial statements do not include all the information and disclosures required in the annual financial statements and should be read in conjunction with the audited statutory financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2019.

The condensed interim financial information contained in this interim statement does not constitute financial statements as defined by section 434(3) of the Companies Act 2006.  The condensed interim financial information is unaudited and has not been reviewed by the Group's auditor.  The financial information for the year ended 31 December 2019 is derived from the audited financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2019, which were unqualified and did not contain any statement under section 498(2) or 498(3) of the Companies Act 2006.  Statutory accounts for Time Out Group plc for the year ended 31 December 2019 have been delivered to the Registrar of Companies.  The comparative financial information for the period ended 30 June 2019 does not constitute statutory financial statements for that period.

These statements were approved by the Board on 29 September 2020.

 

Reserves adjustment

An amount of £0.2m was posted through the Statement of Changes in Equity to adjust for a change in estimate arising on the adoption of IFRS 16 in the prior year.

 

Alternative performance measures

The Group uses alternative performance measures to help management and analysts to assess the underlying business before one-off and non-cash items.  These includes:

· Adjusted EBITDA is calculated as profit or loss before interest, taxation, depreciation, amortisation, share based payments, share of associates loss and exceptional items.  It also includes property lease costs which, under IFRS 16, is replaced by depreciation and interest charges. A reconciliation to operating loss is detailed in Note 4.

· Adjusted net debt excludes the lease liabilities recognised in accordance with IFRS 16 "Leases"

· Net revenue is calculated as gross revenue less the share of concessionaire revenue, further detailed in Note 4.

 

Going Concern

These condensed interim financial statements have been prepared under the going concern basis of accounting as the Directors have a reasonable expectation that the Group and Company will continue in operational existence and be able to settle their liabilities as they fall due for the foreseeable future, being a period of not less than one year from the date of approval of these financial statements. In making this determination, the Directors have considered the financial position of the Group, projections of its future performance and the financing facilities that are in place.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant adverse impact on the Group's current trading and any projection of future performance is inherently uncertain. The key drivers of uncertainty are the actions that may be taken by governments to respond to the pandemic (which could restrict our ability to operate our Markets business), the response of our customers to the pandemic itself and to adverse changes in their economic circumstances (which will impact on revenues in both our Markets and Media businesses). We have taken, and will continue to take, steps to minimise our discretionary expenditure and therefore the principal driver of our future profitability and cash flows will be the revenue we are able to generate from our two businesses. We have also agreed with our lender, Incus Capital Finance, that no payments of interest or capital will be required on our £19 .6m term loan before November 2021 and that the quarterly financial covenants that apply to that loan will not be measured  before the 31 December 2021 measurement date.

Should the impact of the pandemic be more severe or prolonged than we currently forecast, the Group will need to seek additional funding.  Although the Board considers that there are strong grounds for believing that such funding could be secured, there can be no guarantee that would be the case.  This gives rise to a material uncertainty that may cast doubt on the Group's ability to continue as a going concern.

Notwithstanding the material uncertainty described above, the Directors consider it appropriate to prepare the financial statements under the going concern basis.

 

 

2.  Accounting policies

The same accounting policies and methods of computation are followed in these condensed set of financial statements as applied in the Group's latest annual audited financial statements.

 

 

3.  Exchange rates

4.  Segmental information

In accordance with IFRS 8, the Group's operating segments are based on the figures reviewed by the Board, which represents the chief operating decision maker.  The Group comprises two operating segments:

· Time Out Market - this includes Time Out's share of concessionaires' sales, revenues from Time Out operated bars and other revenues include retail, events and sponsorship

· Time Out Media - this includes the sale of digital and print advertising, local marketing solutions, live events tickets and sponsorship, commissions generated from e-commerce transactions, and fees from our franchise partners.

Gross revenue represents the total value of all food, beverage and retail sales transactions in relation to the North American markets, the Group's share of sales transactions in relation to the Lisbon market and any fees management agreement fees.  Net revenue is calculated as gross revenue less the concessionnaires' share of revenue.

IFRS 16 'Leases' materially benefitted EBITDA in the year as property lease costs £3.5m (2019: 1.1m) are no longer included within administrative expenses and are replaced by additional depreciation costs on right-of-use assets of £1.8m (2019: £1.2m) and interest costs £1.8m (2019: £1.2m).  Adjusted EBITDA is presented including the property lease costs to aid understanding of underlying performance.

The restructuring costs in each period relate to redundancy costs.  Loan facility settlement fees relate to professional fees incurred in the settlement of the Oakley Capital Investments Limited ('OCI') loan notes in June 2020 and the write-off of the related deferred financing costs.

 

 

6.  Loss per share

Basic loss per share is calculated by dividing the loss attributable to shareholders by the weighted average number of shares during the period.

For diluted loss per share, the weighted average number of shares in issue is adjusted to assume conversion for all dilutive potential shares.  All potential ordinary shares including options and deferred shares are antidilutive as they would decrease the loss per share and are therefore not considered. Diluted loss per share is equal to basic loss per share.
