Technicolor Reports Q2 Results, Blu-ray Remains Strong

Technicolor SA announced financial and production results for its second quarter 2013.

According to the statement, Technicolor’s revenues were €814 million (US $1.08 billion) in the quarter, up 0.9% at current currency compared to Q2 2012.

On the optical disc replication front, Technicolor reported that “combined Standard Definition DVD and Blu-ray volumes rose by 7% compared to the second quarter of 2012, leading to overall year-on-year volume growth of almost 8% for the first half of 2013. Blu-ray disc volumes demonstrated continued double-digit growth in the second quarter (+67%), while Standard Definition DVD volumes were stable, with slight growth in North America offsetting some softness in Europe. Disc replication for the quarter was driven by a number of major new release titles, including 42 (Warner), Oz, the Great and Powerful (Disney), Identity Thief (Universal), and G.I. Joe: Retaliation (Paramount). Games volumes declined slightly (down 1.4 million units), as a result of a smaller number of new title releases year-on-year. The second quarter is traditionally the lightest period of the year for major studio and game new releases, and the continuing volume growth experienced in the quarter demonstrated ongoing broad consumer appeal of packaged media products.”

In terms of raw numbers, the company manufactured roughly 221 million DVDs in the second quarter of 2013 (roughly even with the same period in 2012) as well as 45 million Blu-ray discs (up 67% over Q2 2012).

Q2 2013 revenue highlights

In the second quarter of 2013, Group revenues from continuing operations amounted to EUR814 million, up 0.9% at constant scope and current currency and up 4.0% at constant scope and currency compared to the second quarter of 2012[5].

· Technology: Another quarter of revenues above EUR100 million, driven by the breadth and the strength of Technicolor's licensing programs.

· Entertainment Services: Increased revenues year-on-year excluding legacy activities[6], reflecting the return to growth of Digital Production and a sustained performance of DVD Services.

· Connected Home: Fifth consecutive quarter of double-digit year-on-year growth in revenues, driven by continued momentum in the emerging markets and further improvement in overall product mix.

Update on Amplify 2015

· Technology launched several new initiatives to expand its licensing activities, notably in the field of smartphones. The agreement with Sony in that area significantly reinforces Technicolor's ability to monetize its extensive IP portfolio for key technologies used in mobile devices. In addition, the pace of contributions to standards was strong in the first half of 2013, in particular for MPEG HEVC and MPEG-H audio standards.

· Entertainment Services recorded good performance across its core activities and continued to improve its operating margin through ongoing cost initiatives and efficiency improvement programs.

· Connected Home pursued its focus on customer wins and market share gains strengthening its sales pipeline, in particular in EMEA, while further demonstrating its leading technological edge in Wi-Fi, Ultra Broadband and Vectoring.

· Further improvement of the financial structure through a successful refinancing

Technicolor successfully completed its refinancing transaction on 12 July allowing the Group to borrow new funds at a lower interest rate, effectively extend its debt maturity and significantly increase its financial flexibility. The implementation of this new debt structure is another important step in the improvement of the Group's financial structure.

The Group put in place a new EUR100 million 5-year revolving credit facility as part of the refinancing transaction.

2013 objectives confirmed

· Growth of adjusted EBITDA between 5% to 10% compared to FY 2012 adjusted EBITDA at constant scope[7] (EUR498 million):

o Licensing adjusted EBITDA broadly stable vs. FY 2012 assuming another year of strong contracts;

o Continued improvement of Connected Home adjusted EBITDA and return to positive free cash flow generation;

o Improved profitability in Entertainment Services, reflecting cost actions implemented in H2 2012;

· Strong growth in Free Cash Flow, above 30%, before one-off payments for legacy litigations (in particular the EU antitrust fine for EUR38.6 million).

Net debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio objective

· Given the refinancing impact on the IFRS adjustment and the transaction costs, the net debt (IFRS) to adjusted EBITDA ratio target announced in February (below 1.25x) is no longer relevant. The Group has therefore decided to shift to a nominal value based ratio going forward, given that both the financial covenant in the Group's new debt and its Amplify 2015 goals are based on nominal debt ratios.

· The Group expects to achieve a net debt (at nominal value) to adjusted EBITDA ratio below 1.6x at the end of December 2013. With respect to Amplify 2015, the Group now targets to achieve a net debt to adjusted EBITDA ratio below 1.0x at the end of December 2015 (versus 1.1x previously), taking into account the positive impact of the refinancing on its free cash flow generation.

Frederic Rose, Chief Executive Officer of Technicolor, stated:

"Technicolor continued to show strong progress across all activities in the first half of 2013, combining revenue growth, improved profitability and solid cash flow generation. This performance is reinforced by the refinancing transaction recently completed, which further strengthens the Group's financial structure. Technicolor continues to deliver on its Amplify 2015 strategic roadmap, dynamized notably by another good performance of Connected Home, by a strong performance across Entertainment Services activities and by the enhancement of its intellectual property portfolio as illustrated by the significant agreement announced with Sony for smartphones."

An analyst conference call hosted by Frederic Rose, CEO and Stéphane Rougeot, CFO and SEVP Strategy will be held on Friday, 26 July 2013 at 3:00pm CEST.

Summary of consolidated first half 2013 results (unaudited)

Technicolor is presenting, in addition to published results and with the aim of providing a more comparable view of the evolution of its operating performance compared with the first half of 2012, a set of adjusted indicators that exclude the following items as per the statement of operations of our interim consolidated financial statements:

· Restructuring charges;

· Net impairment charges;

· Other income and expenses (other non-current items).

These adjustments, the reconciliation of which is detailed on page 22, amounted to an impact on Group EBIT from continuing operations of EUR(24) million in the first half of 2013 (EUR22 million in H1 2012).

Growth in revenues at constant scope and increased operating profitability in H1 2013

· In the first half of 2013, Group revenues from continuing operations amounted to EUR1,589 million, up 1.5% at constant scope and current currency and up 3.1% at constant scope and currency compared to the first half of 2012[10], due to solid performances of Connected Home and Entertainment Services.

· In the first half of 2013, gross margin amounted to EUR346 million, and represented 21.8% of revenues, an improvement of 0.5 point year-on-year.

· Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations reached EUR207 million, up 11% year-on-year at constant scope, a 1.0 point margin improvement compared to the first half of 2012.

· The improvement in adjusted EBITDA resulted from very good levels of activity in volume-driven activities, combined with tight cost containment at corporate level and across the segments.

Net result improved by EUR32 million in H1 2013 versus H1 2012

* Adjusted EBIT from continuing operations amounted to EUR111 million in the first half of 2013 compared to EUR93 million in the first half of 2012, a 1.3 point margin improvement, reflecting growth in adjusted EBITDA and lower depreciation & amortization expenses.

* EBIT from continuing operations reached EUR87 million in the first half of 2013 compared to EUR115 million in the first half of 2012, which included a EUR41 million curtailment gain related to US retirement benefit obligations. Financial result totaled EUR(72) million in the first half of 2013 compared to EUR(116) million in the first half of 2012, which included negative one-off effects related to the capital increases. Net interest charges amounted to EUR63 million in the first half of 2013 (H1 2012: EUR76 million).

* Net result amounted to a profit of EUR6 million in the first half of 2013 compared to a loss of EUR26 million in the first half of 2012.

Operating Cash Flow from continuing operations up 24% in H1 2013

· Operating cash flow from continuing operations amounted to EUR125 million in the first half of 2013, an increase of EUR24 million compared with the first half of 2012, and represented 7.9% of revenues, a year-on-year improvement of 1.8 point. Cash outflow for net capital expenditures totaled EUR52 million in the first half of 2013 (H1 2012: EUR74 million), a EUR22 million year-on-year decrease resulting from a strict control in Entertainment Services and lower capitalized R&D both in Connected Home and Technology segments. Cash outflow related to restructuring reached EUR30 million in the first half of 2013, an increase of EUR7 million year-on-year (H1 2012: EUR23 million), reflecting restructuring in legacy activities and DVD Services and further streamlining in Connected Home and support functions.

Improved Group Free Cash Flow in H1 2013

· The Group posted positive Free Cash Flow of EUR24 million in the first half of 2013, up from EUR2 million in the first half of 2012, despite payment of the EU antitrust fine (EUR38.6 million) and a previously disclosed litigation cost (EUR17.3 million). This performance reflected double-digit growth in operating cash flow from continuing operations, combined with a tight management of working capital, despite the strong level of activity, and the reduction in cash financial charges resulting from the significant deleveraging achieved in the second half of 2012. The Group generated positive Free Cash Flow for the fifth consecutive half.

· Group Free Cash Flow was impacted by the following items:

* Working capital variation was positive at EUR19 million in H1 2013;

* Cash financial charges amounted to EUR51 million in H1 2013;

* Other cash charges, mainly related to tax and pensions, totaled EUR30 million;

* Free Cash Flow from discontinued activities amounted to EUR(38) million, mainly resulting from the EU antitrust fine payment.

Cash position and financial debt

* Nominal gross debt (non IFRS) amounted to EUR1,207 million (EUR1,101 million IFRS) at end June 2013 compared to EUR1,236 million (EUR1,115 million IFRS) at end December 2012, a reduction of EUR29 million, reflecting in particular normal senior debt repayments of EUR36 million and negative forex impact.

* The Group's cash position amounted to EUR370 million at end June 2013 compared to EUR397 million at end December 2012, reflecting free cash flow generation of EUR24 million in the first half of 2013, senior debt reimbursement for EUR(36) million and others for EUR(15) million, including forex.

* Net debt at nominal value (non IFRS) amounted to EUR837 million at end June 2013, broadly stable compared to EUR839 million at end December 2012.

* Net debt as per interim consolidated financial statements (IFRS) amounted to EUR731 million at end June 2013 compared to EUR718 million at end December 2012.

Financial covenants

On 30 June 2013, the Group met its financial covenants. In the context of the refinancing, these covenants, which were linked to the existing debt, have been removed and not replaced. A leverage covenant is attached to the new debt and a cross default agreement will apply to the remaining existing debt in event of default.

In the second quarter of 2013, Technology revenues amounted to EUR101 million, down 5.2% at constant currency compared to the second quarter of 2012. The breadth and the strength of the Group's licensing programs secured another quarter of revenues above EUR100 million, with Licensing revenues of EUR101 million in the second quarter of 2013, down 4.9% at constant currency as compared to the strong double digit growth recorded in the second quarter of 2012. This performance resulted from a negative dollar impact and some softness in the Consumer Electronics market, leading to lower revenues across the Group's various licensing programs.

In the first half of 2013, Technology revenues totaled EUR227 million, down 4.0% at current currency and down 3.3% at constant currency compared to the first half of 2012. Licensing revenues were EUR226 million, reflecting a limited decrease of 3.0% at constant currency. Adjusted EBITDA for the Technology segment reached EUR164 million, or 72.2% of revenues, down 3.2 points year-on-year, as slightly improved Licensing margin of 88% was offset by increased operating expenses for M-GO.

Technology - Q2 2013 Business Highlights

Boris Teksler has been named President of the Technology Group, assuming responsibilities for both Research & Innovation and Intellectual Property & Licensing activities of the Group. His experience in protecting assets and driving focused innovation will strongly support the continued development of the Technology segment.

Regarding new strategic initiatives, Technicolor recently announced a significant intellectual property collaboration with Sony for smartphones, a licensing agreement which strengthens its strategic patent licensing initiative in the field of mobile devices. The combined portfolio covers a wide range of technologies found in leading smartphones and will offer the industry a comprehensive license to this unified portfolio.

In Technology Licensing, Technicolor has awarded the first 4K Image Certification to Marseille Networks for its system on chip to deliver content on 4K televisions. A first milestone has been reached with the signing of Toshiba as the first Blu-ray™ player manufacturer to be awarded 4K Image Certification by Technicolor.

During the quarter, the Group pressed its implication in standards with various contributions, especially in the MPEG High Efficiency Video Coding ("HEVC") standard. In particular, Technicolor proposes to improve the HEVC standard with support for more colors and bit depth for higher image quality and fidelity. Following through on its commitment to broadly support the industry in developing the quality of media delivered, synchronized contributions to application specifications such as DVB and ATSC for the transmission of UHDTV video on satellite, cable, IP or terrestrial networks has also been made. Recognizing the value of an immersive experience for consumers, Technicolor demonstrated through formal listening tests, the sound quality consumers would be able to enjoy from the Technicolor contributions made to the MPEG-H audio standard.

As a key enabler for 4K and UHDTV and its capacity to double compression efficiency versus other standards such as MPEG-4, the sustained and significant involvement of Technology teams in this MPEG standard is a key asset both for Entertainment Services and Connected Home segments.

* Legacy activities include mainly photochemical film and compression & authoring activities

In the first half of 2013, Entertainment Services revenues amounted to EUR732 million, down 3.3% at current currency and down 2.5% at constant currency compared to the first half of 2012. Excluding legacy activities, Entertainment Services revenues increased by 4.2% at constant currency compared to the first half of 2012, as a result of strong performance in DVD Services associated with higher volumes and solid growth in Digital Creative Services. Adjusted EBITDA amounted to EUR84 million, or 11.5% of revenues, up 2.7 points year-over-year, driven by improved DVD Services results.

* In DVD Services, a total of 601 million discs were replicated in the first half of 2013, a 8% rise year-on-year, supported by resiliency of Standard Definition DVD, and continued growth in Blu-ray™. In the first half of 2013, DVD Services benefited from total disc volume growth, product mix improvement associated with greater Blu-ray™ volumes, as well as the impact of ongoing cost savings initiatives and efficiency improvement programs.

* Creative Services revenues decreased in the first half of 2013 compared to the first half of 2012, as a result of a drop in legacy activities. Digital Creative Services posted broadly stable revenues, driven by the return to growth of Digital Production in the second quarter, due to a strong level of activity in VFX for feature films, and the continued growth of other Digital Creative Services. In the first half of 2013, the revenue drop in legacy activities was mitigated by the related variable cost structure and additional cost cutting measures across the Group. Digital Creative Services margin improved, excluding the Italy-based operations that have been strongly affected by the significant weakness of local market.

DVD Services - Q2 2013 Revenue Highlights

In the second quarter of 2013, combined Standard Definition DVD and Blu-ray™ volumes rose by 7% compared to the second quarter of 2012, leading to overall year-on-year volume growth of almost 8% for the first half of 2013. Blu-ray™disc volumes demonstrated continued double-digit growth in the second quarter (+67%), while Standard Definition DVD volumes were stable, with slight growth in North America offsetting some softness in Europe. Disc replication for the quarter was driven by a number of major new release titles, including 42 (Warner), Oz, the Great and Powerful (Disney), Identity Thief (Universal), and G.I. Joe: Retaliation (Paramount). Games volumes declined slightly (down 1.4 million units), as a result of a smaller number of new title releases year-on-year. The second quarter is traditionally the lightest period of the year for major studio and game new releases, and the continuing volume growth experienced in the quarter demonstrated ongoing broad consumer appeal of packaged media products.

Creative Services - Q2 2013 Revenue Highlights

In the second quarter of 2013, Creative Services recorded a year-on-year decline in revenues, due to a 40% revenue drop at constant currency in legacy activities. Excluding legacy activities, Creative Services revenues grew compared to the second quarter of 2012. The continuing focus of Digital Post Production and Digital Distribution Services activities on their core strengths, in particular Video and Sound activities in Post Production and work on digital content libraries in Distribution, combined with the return to growth of Digital Production resulted in a solid year-on-year revenue expansion in the quarter.

Digital Creative Services

* Digital Production activities posted a solid revenue increase in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012, driven by a return to growth in Visual Effects ("VFX") for feature films, which grew double-digits in the quarter, benefiting from a strong workload across all facilities. During the second quarter, VFX teams completed work on World War Z (Paramount) and The Lone Ranger (Disney), while continuing work on Maleficent (Disney), Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters (Fox), as well as 300: Rise of an Empire (Warner). The teams also started new projects, including Guardians of the Galaxy (Marvel/Disney) and Godzilla (Warner/Legendary).

* Digital Post Production revenues increased in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012, lifted by a good level of activity in the US, especially in Theatrical and Broadcast Post work. This good performance fully offset the persistent weakness of European markets, which mainly affected Italian operations and Sound & Versioning activities in the UK and France. During the quarter, Digital Post Production teams continued to work on feature films such as World War Z (Paramount), Delivery Man (BVI) and The Smurfs 2 (Sony) in Theatrical, and on successful TV series such as Mad Men Season 5 (AMC), True Blood Season 6 (HBO) and Dexter Season 8 (Showtime) in Broadcast.

* Digital Distribution Services revenues decreased slightly in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012, due to further decline in Localization Services (subtitling) in North America and a lower level of activity in the UK, partially offset by continuing work on digital content libraries for major Studios and distributors, Video-on-Demand and Over-the-Top aggregators in the US.

* Digital Cinema activities recorded a slight increase in revenues in the second quarter of 2013 compared to the second quarter of 2012, as the launch of the business in France and solid volume growth in the UK helped to offset increasing competition in the US. Digital screen penetration is now at 93% in North America and 80% in Europe.

Legacy activities

Legacy activities continued to significantly decline in the second quarter of 2013, with the ongoing digital conversion of theatres. Legacy activities accounted only for approximately 3% of Group revenues in the first half of 2013 compared to approximately 6% in the first half of 2012.

Connected Home

Following the sale of Broadcast Services and SmartVision (television-over-IP) businesses in 2012, and the disposal of Cirpack softswitch operations (voice-over-IP) in 2013, the Group renamed the existing "Digital Delivery" segment to "Connected Home". The business review is focused on Connected Home.

In the first half of 2013, Connected Home revenues totaled EUR630 million, up 10.0% at current currency and up 13.1% at constant currency compared to the first half of 2012. This sustained performance mainly reflected continued strong volume growth across the emerging markets, particularly in Brazil and India, as well as further improvement in overall product mix, led by the North American Cable market.

Global shipments in Europe grew slightly during the period, amid persistent economic softness across the region, and recent customer wins will start to positively impact revenue growth in the second half of 2013. Revenues in North America were principally affected by the phase-out of some Satellite products and the decline of digital-to-analog Cable adaptor deliveries as compared to the first half of 2012, while shipments of new products started as expected during the second quarter, and in particular in June. The introduction of new, higher- end devices will generate strong growth in the region in the second half of 2013. Based on the current backlog, Connected Home will grow revenues in all regions on a full year basis.

In the first half of 2013, Adjusted EBITDA amounted to EUR2 million, an increase of EUR13 million compared to the first half of 2012, supported by sustained top-line growth and improved gross margin. The continuous optimization of Connected Home operations generated further cost savings, as expected, and resulted in a gross margin of 11.7% in the first half of 2013, a 1.1 percentage point increase compared to the first half of 2012. The strong revenue performance, good execution of the turnaround plan and tight management of working capital resulted in a positive free cash flow for Connected Home in the second quarter of 2013, comforting the Group's objective to generate a positive free cash flow for the full year.

Connected Home - Q2 2013 Revenue Highlights

In the second quarter of 2013, Connected Home revenues were EUR356 million, up 10.8% at constant currency compared to the second quarter of 2012, marking the fifth consecutive quarter of double-digit year-on-year expansion. This performance reflected continued strong demand across Latin America and Asia- Pacific, relatively stable shipments to European customers amid difficult market conditions, as well as the benefit of new product deployments on overall mix in North America, despite lower volumes.

* In North America, Connected Home product volumes fell in the second quarter of 2013, but registered a sequential improvement over the first quarter of 2013, reflecting a drop in set top box shipments related to the phase-out of some Satellite products and reduced deliveries of digital-to- analog Cable adaptors, partly offset by strong growth in volumes of broadband Cable gateways. As expected, new product deployments started at the end of the quarter and shipments will accelerate in the second half. Overall product mix improved significantly year-on-year, driven by higher share of higher-end devices in Cable, partly offset by lower shipments of High Definition PVRs in Satellite.

* In Latin America, Connected Home product volumes recorded another quarter of double-digit growth, driven by continued strong demand across the region, particularly for Satellite and Cable devices. This performance also benefited from the rollout of new generation Satellite set top boxes, notably in Brazil. Overall product mix improved year-on-year, due to higher proportion of High Definition products.

* In Europe, Middle-East and Africa, Connected Home product volumes remained relatively stable in the second quarter of 2013, despite still difficult market environment, as sustained growth in shipments of Cable modems offset reduced deliveries of other product categories. Overall product mix was lower year-on-year, due notably to lower shipments of High Definition PVRs.

* In Asia-Pacific, Connected Home product volumes experienced buoyant growth in the second quarter of 2013, driven by strong shipments of Satellite set top boxes, especially in India, as well as increased deliveries of broadband Telecom gateways. Overall product mix improved strongly compared to last year, benefiting from the introduction of new devices for several customers during the quarter.

Summary of consolidated results at constant scope (unaudited)

Following the sale of the Broadcast Services and the SmartVision (television-over-IP or IPTV) businesses in 2012, and the disposal of Cirpack softswitch operations (voice-over-IP or VoIP) in 2013, Technicolor renamed the existing "Digital Delivery" segment "Connected Home".

The following table provides proforma financial indicators for the first half of 2012 and the first half of 2013 (excluding Broadcast Services, IPTV and VoIP activities).

Reconciliation of adjusted indicators

Technicolor is presenting, in addition to published results and with the aim to provide a more comparable view of the evolution of its operating performance compared with the first half of 2012, a set of adjusted indicators that exclude the following items as per the statement of operations of our consolidated financial statements:

· Restructuring charges;

· Net impairment charges;

· Other income and expenses (other non-current items).

These adjustments, the reconciliation of which is detailed in the following table, amounted to an impact on Group EBIT from continuing operations of EUR(24) million in the first half of 2013 (EUR22 million in H1 2012).
