Technicolor Slows Bleeding, Reports Q2 Results

Technicolor SA announced financial and production results for its second quarter 2012.

According to the statement, Technicolor’s revenues were €846 million (US $1.027 billion) in the quarter, up 13.3% compared to Q2 2011. The company posted a net loss of €26 million (US $31.6 million) in the first half of 2012, substantially less than its €112 million (US $136 million) loss during the same period in 2011.

On the optical disc replication front, Technicolor reported that “combined SD-DVD and Blu-ray volumes decreased by 2% compared to the second quarter of 2011. This marked improvement over the 9% decrease experienced in the previous quarter resulted in a limited volume decline of 6% in the first half of 2012, notwithstanding an unusually weak release slate from the Group’s Studio clients over the period. In the quarter, Technicolor also commenced operations on a new multi-year distribution services agreement with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment for the Canadian territory.”

Additionally, “standard Definition DVD volumes continued to show resiliency, with the European market declining less than in the previous quarter and the North American market experiencing a slight year-on-year increase. Blu-ray volumes rebounded from an unusually soft first quarter, with a 17% increase in the second quarter of 2012. Games volumes deteriorated somewhat due to a weaker slate of new release titles compared to the second quarter of 2011.”

Moreover, “the second quarter is traditionally the lightest period of the year for major studio and games new releases, and the ongoing stability of volumes in the quarter demonstrates continued consumer appetite for packaged media products.”

In terms of raw numbers, the company manufactured roughly 221 million DVDs in the second quarter of 2012 (down 1% from the same period in 2011) as well as 27 million Blu-ray discs (up 17% over Q2 2011).

PARIS--(Jul 25, 2012) -

Solid revenue growth in Q2 2012

Improved Adjusted EBITDA in H1 2012

Paris (France), July 25, 2012 - The Board of Directors of Technicolor (Euronext Paris: TCH) met yesterday to review the Group's first half 2012 results.

H1 2012 highlights

· Group revenues up 5.6% at current currency compared to H1 2011, and up 0.6% at constant currency. Growth in Technology revenues driven by a strong Q2 2012 and the confirmed recovery of Connected Home fully offset the decline in Entertainment Services revenues;

· Adjusted EBITDA[1] up 18.5% at EUR198 million, or 12% of revenues, an increase of 1.3 point compared with H1 2011 resulting from a strong performance in Technology, a broadly stable contribution of Entertainment Services and the ongoing turnaround of Connected Home;

· Significant reduction in Group net loss at EUR(26) million compared to a loss of EUR(112) million in H1 2011;

· Positive Group Free Cash Flow[2] at EUR2 million, reflecting the control on working capital despite the strong recovery of Connected Home. Net debt at nominal value (non IFRS) amounting to EUR1,161 million at June 30, 2012.

Q2 2012 revenues highlights

Group revenues from continuing operations amounted to EUR846 million in Q2 2012, up 13.3% at current currency and up 5.9% at constant currency compared to Q2 2011.

· Technology: Licensing revenues recorded strong growth of 20.7% at constant currency, reflecting continuing strength of MPEG LA revenues and good performances across its programs, in particular in Digital TV and Set Top Boxes;

· Entertainment Services: Revenues were down 13.1% at constant currency and down only 6.1% excluding photochemical film activities which are at end of life. DVD Services reported an improvement compared with the first quarter of 2012 with volume growth in North America and softer volume decrease in Europe. Creation Services recorded another quarter of revenue growth;

· Digital Delivery: Confirmed recovery of Connected Home, with revenues up 34.7% at constant currency, reflecting a strong recovery in volumes and product mix. This recovery was also confirmed by additional customer wins for new solutions and services across Americas, EMEA and APAC.

A strengthened financial structure

· The financial structure will be strengthened in the second half of 2012 with the completion of the Broadcast Services disposal on July 2 and the ongoing capital increases that will lead to Vector Capital ("Vector"), through its private equity funds and the Luxembourg company Petalite Investment S.à r.l. ("Petalite"), becoming a significant shareholder of Technicolor.

· The EUR17.5 million of net proceeds resulting from the disposal of Broadcast Services will be fully applied to debt reduction, as well as 80% of total net proceeds of the two capital increases in accordance with the credit agreements.

· These capital increases, of an amount comprised between EUR167 million and EUR191 million, will allow Technicolor to strengthen its balance sheet and enhance its capabilities to implement its "Amplify 2015" strategic roadmap.

· A supplemental note to the note d'opération (the "Supplemental Note"), which principally includes the first half 2012 financial statements, is being filed with the Autorité des Marchés Financiers ("AMF") with a visa expected on July 26, 2012. In accordance with the law, a withdrawal period for investors who have exercised their rights and subscribed to new shares prior the publication of the Supplemental Note will open from July 27 to July 30, 2012. The Rights issue is open until August 2, 2012 post market opening hours.

· As a result of the settlement and delivery on July 16 of the reserved capital increase to Petalite, Technicolor has already received gross proceeds of EUR95 million. The Rights Issue that is ongoing will be closed on August 2 with a settlement on August 14 and will generate between EUR72million and EUR96million of gross proceeds.

· On a proforma basis, calculated in relation to the debt level at June 30, 2012, net debt at nominal value (non IFRS) would have been comprised between EUR960 million and EUR984 million at June 30, 2012 upon completion of the two transactions. Net debt as per consolidated financial statements would have been comprised between EUR821 million and EUR844 million at June 30, 2012.

Amplify 2015 recent developments

As part of its Amplify 2015 roadmap announced in February 2012, several initiatives have already been identified, with offers being designed for a potential market launch over the next 12 to 18 months. They include:

· M-Go, the innovative platform aiming at helping consumer discover, access and share effortless its media, which entered at the beginning of the summer 2012 in closed beta launch and is planned to be rolled-out mainstream before year-end;

· Innovative services to content creators such as on-set digital capture services successfully launched in the second quarter of 2012 with major project wins with Fox and other studios, digital production workflow management services and value-added content distribution services;

· Roll-out of the Technology licensing model to proactively disseminate content-based innovations around Color and Sound to the consumer electronic industry and digital platforms;

· A new venture set-up with digital advertising entrepreneurs to accelerate the development of advertising and content enrichment services based on Technicolor innovations for "second-screen".

Confirmation of 2012 objectives

Based on H1 2012 achievements, Technicolor confirms its 2012 objectives:

· Adjusted EBITDA in the range of EUR475-500 million.

· Positive free cash flow generation despite higher restructuring expenses and investments in growth businesses.

· Operate within the financial covenants of credit agreements.

Frederic Rose, Chief Executive Officer of Technicolor, stated:

"Our solid first semester results in a difficult market environment are a good result, especially with regard to the confirmed recovery of the Connected Home business. These results demonstrate that we are on track to achieve the guidance provided earlier this year. The growth of our revenues, the improvement of our EBITDA and our positive Free Cash Flow, combined with the strengthening of our financial structure in the second half of 2012, are encouraging signs for the future".

An analyst conference call hosted by Frederic Rose, CEO and Stéphane Rougeot, CFO and SEVP Strategy will be held on Wednesday, July 25, 2012 at 3:00 pm CET.

Stable revenues and increased operating profitability in H1 2012

· In the first half of 2012, revenues from continuing operations amounted to EUR1,646 million compared with EUR1,559 million in the first half of 2011, an increase of 0.6% at constant currency.

· In the first half of 2012, gross margin amounted to EUR354 million, up 18.3%, and represented 21.5% of revenues, an improvement of 2.3 points year-on- year.

· Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations amounted to EUR198 million compared with EUR167 million in the first half of 2011, a 18.5% increase year-on- year or 1.3 points margin growth.

· These increases resulted from the good level of activity across the three segments and tight cost containment due in particular to the Operational Excellence program that Technicolor implemented in December 2011 to improve its overall competitiveness through increased operational efficiency and a reduction of the cost structure.

Net loss reduced by EUR86 million in H1 2012

· In the first half of 2012, adjusted EBIT from continuing operations amounted to EUR93 million compared to EUR37 million in the first half of 2011, an increase in margin of 3.3 points reflecting the increase in Adjusted EBITDA margin and lower depreciation & amortization expenses.

· EBIT from continuing operations amounted to EUR115 million in the first half of 2012 compared with EUR12 million in the first half of 2011. Other impacts amounted to EUR22 million compared with EUR(25) million in the first half of 2011, reflecting a EUR4 million loss related to the deconsolidation of Angers, lower restructuring and impairment charges and a positive curtailment gain of EUR41 million. This gain resulted from Technicolor's decision to align its retirees life insurance benefits in the US with the practice of other US companies. As a result, future cash out related to the retirement benefit obligations in the US will be reduced.

· In the first half of 2012, the Group's financial result amounted to EUR(116) million, including net interest charges of EUR76 million, of which EUR18 million non-cash charges related to IFRS effective interest rate impact (in accordance with IAS 39-43 the reinstated debt was initially valued at its fair value, resulting in a gain of EUR229 million as of May 26, 2010 and is subsequently measured at amortized cost using the effective interest rate method).

· Net result amounted to a loss of EUR26 million in the first half of 2012 compared with a loss of EUR112 million in the first half of 2011.

Sustained Operating Cash Flow from continuing operations in H1 2012

· Operating cash flow from continuing operations amounted to EUR101 million in the first half of 2012, an increase of EUR39 million compared with the first half of 2011, and represented 6.1% of revenues, a year- on-year increase of 2.1 points. In the first half of 2012, cash outflow for net capital expenditures amounted to EUR74 million, a EUR10 million year-on-year decrease resulting from a decrease in capacity expansion in Blu-ray™, and with the bulk of the investment in the US sound facility already done. Cash outflow related to restructuring amounted to EUR23 million, broadly stable year-on- year.

Positive Group Free Cash Flow in H1 2012

· The Group generated positive Free Cash Flow of EUR2 million in H1 2012 compared with EUR32 million in H1 2011 which benefited from a strong contribution from working capital due in particular to the drop in the Connected Home business. The Group generated positive Free Cash Flow for the third consecutive semester.

· Main impacts on Group Free Cash Flow are as follows:

Cash position and financial debt

· Gross debt at nominal value amounted to EUR1,466 million on 30 June 2012, a decrease of EUR34 million compared with 31 December 2011, reflecting:

* Debt reimbursement for EUR56 million resulting in particular from a
Normal scheduled repayment of EUR22 million and an excess cash flow
Mandatory prepayment of EUR25 million;
* An increase in the debt level due to a negative forex impact of
EUR22 million on the Group's debt denominated in US dollar.

· The Group's cash position amounted to EUR305 million on 30 June 2012, compared with EUR370 million at 31 December 2011. The change in cash position resulted from:

* Positive Group Free Cash Flow of EUR2 million;
* Debt reimbursement for EUR(56) million;
* Other for EUR(11) million, including in particular the impact of a
joint- venture with Indoor Direct and the acquisition of French
assets in Postproduction.

· Net debt at nominal value (non IFRS) amounted to EUR1,161 million on June 30, 2012, compared to EUR1,130 million at December 31, 2011;

In the first half of 2012, Technology revenues totaled EUR236 million, up 7.9% at current currency and up 2.9% at constant currency compared to the first half of 2011, with Licensing revenues up 8.4% at current currency and 3.3% at constant currency. Adjusted EBITDA margin for the Technology segment increased by 0.8 point year-on-year to 75.4% of revenues, driven by the growth in Licensing business, as well as stable operating costs.

Licensing revenue trends and Research & Innovation ("R&I") milestones in Q2 2012

In the second quarter of 2012, Technology revenues amounted to EUR115 million, up 28.5% at current currency and up 19.7% at constant currency compared to the second quarter of 2011.

* Licensing revenues increased strongly by 20.7% at constant currency in
the second quarter of 2012, reflecting good performances across the
different programs, including renewals in Digital TV and Digital SetTop
Boxes. MPEG LA revenues were strong in the second quarter of 2012, with
Technicolor remaining a key contributor to the pool.
* In the second quarter of 2012, Research & Innovation ("R&I")
transferred several innovations to the Group's other businesses. For
example, a new postproduction tool was transferred to Technicolor
India. Using this tool, artists can pre-visualize in real time lighting
and texturing of complex animated sequences that would otherwise
require hours of rendering on a dedicated, expensive render farm.
Technicolor's technology produces near to final rendering quality at
standard playback speed, where competing pre-visualization solutions
provide lower rendering quality in order to reach interactivity.
Content creators can thus focus on crucial tasks and unleash their
creativity, one of the key objectives of Technicolor's 2012-2015
research orientation. This solution has been tested by Technicolor
Digital Production's animation studio in India during the authoring of
its most recent direct-to-video title.

Other innovations for content creators as well as content distributors were also displayed during the Science and Technology week that took place on June 25- 27 at Technicolor's Headquarter in Issy-les-Moulineaux. 26 technologies were showcased during the Open Days, some of which being in active transfer to the Group's other businesses. Other advanced technologies slated for transfer later in 2012 and early 2013 were demonstrated as well as 'on the horizon' exploratory topics which will drive technology in Technicolor in the years to come. This included Color Sciences, 3D, Restoration and Archiving, Visual Effects (VFX), Synchronization technologies, Content Interactivity, Recommendation and Targeted Profiling, and Smart Home. This event created an opportunity for innovation at Technicolor to openly connect with the Group's customers and partners.

In the first half of 2012, Entertainment Services revenues totaled EUR757 million, down 3.4% at current currency and down 9.2% at constant currency compared with the first half of 2011, resulting from the continuing rapid decline of Photochemical Film activities and some weakness in Europe for DVD Services, partially offset by the DVD volume improvement in North America, some growth in Digital Production and strong revenue growth in Postproduction and Media Services. In the first half of 2012, digital services represented 67% of Creation Services and Theatrical Services revenues compared with 53% in 2011.

Entertainment Services Adjusted EBITDA was stable year-on-year and margin improved by 0.3 point compared with the first half of 2011. The improved mix resulting from the increased weight of digital services and further cost savings initiatives in particular in DVD Services compensated the contraction in revenues and the continuing ramp up costs related to the additional postproduction facilities in the US and in France.

* Creation Services posted a year-on-year decrease in margin, due to the
delayed release of two movies, which impacted the level of activity of
Digital Production, and to the continuing ramp up in the second quarter
of 2012 of the Group's new postproduction facilities in the US and in
France, which will reach full capacity by the end of the year;
* Theatrical Services margin was up compared with the first half of 2011,
reflecting further improvement in the mix between Photochemical Film
and Digital Cinema Distribution activities.
* DVD Services margin remained stable, driven by multiple factors,
notably the positive impact of ongoing cost savings initiatives and
efficiency improvement programs and the sustained volume performance in
North America.

Entertainment Services revenue trends in Q2 2012

In the second quarter of 2012, Entertainment Services revenues amounted to EUR362 million, down 4.6% at current currency and down 13.1% at constant currency compared with the second quarter of 2011, and only down 6.1% at constant currency excluding Photochemical Film activities.

* Creation Services

Creation Services posted strong revenue growth in the second quarter of 2012 compared with the second quarter of 2011, with growing digital revenues in Postproduction and Media Services.

o Digital Production experienced slight revenue growth in the second quarter of 2012 compared to the second quarter of 2011. Visual Effects ("VFX") for commercials remained strong, without fully offsetting a weaker quarter for feature films. The feature film VFX activity was affected by the delay in two sizeable projects, World War Z and 47 Ronin, with the bulk of the workload being pushed back toward the end of the year. In the second quarter of 2012, VFX teams completed work on Prometheus while continuing work on Superman and Life of Pi and starting to work on The Lone Ranger.

o Postproduction revenues increased significantly in the second quarter of 2012 compared to the second quarter of 2011, as the Group continued to benefit from its investments in both talents and technologies. This activity reported strong growth in the US and in Europe with a positive contribution of the new sound facilities in the US and in France. During the second quarter, the Group successfully launched its on-set digital capture services with major project wins with Fox (The Internship) and other studios. An agreement was also signed with Colorworks (Sony) to deploy the F65 new Sony Camera workflow.

o Media Services revenues were up in the second quarter of 2012, as Digital Distribution Services benefited from strong growth of the Group's digital solutions for Over-the-Top and Video-on-Demand players, especially in the UK.

· Theatrical Services

Revenues from Theatrical Services decreased in the second quarter of 2012 compared with the second quarter of 2011 mainly due to the drop of 53% in photochemical film footage and to the slowdown in Digital Cinema Distribution. Digital Cinema Distribution reported a decrease in the second quarter of 2012 reflecting the weaker slate of titles released by the Group's Studio clients and increased pricing pressure particularly in Europe, but also in North America. At the end of June 2012, digital screen penetration reached 73% in North America and 62% in Europe. At this level of penetration, the strong growth in revenues generated over the past years by the rapid conversion of the screens is going to slowdown.

DVD Services

In the second quarter of 2012, combined SD-DVD and Blu-ray™ volumes decreased by 2% compared to the second quarter of 2011. This marked improvement over the 9% decrease experienced in the previous quarter resulted in a limited volume decline of 6% in the first half of 2012, notwithstanding an unusually weak release slate from the Group's Studio clients over the period. In the quarter, Technicolor also commenced operations on a new multi-year distribution services agreement with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment for the Canadian territory.

Standard Definition DVD volumes continued to show resiliency, with the European market declining less than in the previous quarter and the North American market experiencing a slight year-on-year increase. Blu-ray™ volumes rebounded from an unusually soft first quarter, with a 17% increase in the second quarter of 2012. Games volumes deteriorated somewhat due to a weaker slate of new release titles compared to the second quarter of 2011.

The second quarter is traditionally the lightest period of the year for major studio and games new releases, and the ongoing stability of volumes in the quarter demonstrates continued consumer appetite for packaged media products.

In the first half of 2012, revenues were up 18% at current currency and 14.2% at constant currency, driven by strong growth of Connected Home in the second quarter following the stabilization reported in the first quarter. In the first half of 2012, Adjusted EBITDA for the Digital Delivery segment was at breakeven. Connected Home Adjusted EBITDA amounted to EUR(12) million compared with EUR(26) million in the first half of 2011. The turnaround plan of Connected Home launched in December 2011 is on track and Connected Home is well positioned to achieve Adjusted EBITDA breakeven in 2012 and to generate a positive Adjusted EBITDA in the second half of 2012.

Connected Home performed extremely well in the first half of 2012 with a top line growth of 16.8% year-on-year at constant currency. In addition, Connected Home had new customer wins for new solutions and services in all regions. Gross margin in the first half of 2012 was up 1.4 point at 11.2%. The impact of the cost saving initiatives was slightly behind expectations (by EUR4.6 million), due to delays in the restructuring in Europe, which will only be completed in the third quarter of 2012.

Connected Home revenue trends in Q2 2012

In the second quarter of 2012, Digital Delivery revenues amounted to EUR370 million, up 33.5% at current currency and up 28% at constant currency compared to the second quarter of 2011. This increase was due to the strong recovery reported by Connected Home.

In the second quarter of 2012, Connected Home recorded revenue growth of 34.7% at constant currency with revenues growing in all regions compared with the second quarter of 2011. Volumes were up 31% in the second quarter and 20% in the first half of 2012, reflecting an overall improvement in the product mix since the beginning of the year. With 14.5 million units of Connected Home products delivered in the first half of 2012, volumes have returned to their 2009 level.

The Group reported a strong performance in Latin America and Asia- Pacific as well as a significant improvement of the Europe, Middle-East and Africa region:

* In North America (NAM), Connected Home product volumes were down year-
on-year, as volumes in the second quarter of 2011 were driven by
particularly strong shipments of digital-to-analog adaptors (DTAs).
This decline in volumes was more than offset however by an improved
product mix. The Group remains confident in its ability to deliver
stable revenue year-on-year in North America on a full year basis.
* In Europe, Middle-East and Africa (EMEA), Connected Home was strongly
up in the second quarter of 2012, with increased deliveries of Gateways
and Modems & Routers. This sharp increase in volumes and larger
deliveries of HD PVRs in Cable have been partially offset by the
phase-out of some Set Top Box contracts. The Group expects its European
operations to continue improving throughout 2012 despite adverse market
conditions.
* In Latin America (LATAM), volumes reported another quarter of strong
growth compared with an already strong second quarter of 2011, with
shipments of Set Top Boxes more than doubling year-on-year. This region
is set to be Technicolor's largest market over the next few years,
backed by strong demand and the move upmarket by the Group's customers.
Technicolor expects continuous strong revenue growth over the course of
the year.
* In Asia-Pacific (APAC), more than 1 million Connected Home products
were delivered over the second quarter of 2012 mainly due to a strong
increase in Set Top Boxes. The Asia-Pacific market is now significant,
with dynamic growth in the Group's revenues in particular in India.
Technicolor expects that revenues will keep on growing strongly in
Asia-Pacific in the second half of 2012.

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 2011, a set of adjusted indicators which 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 the Group EBIT from continuing operations of EUR22 million in the first half of 2012 (EUR(25) million in the first half of 2011).
