 Clear Channel Outdoor Reports Third Quarter 2008 Results
   Monday, November 10, 2008 7:00:06 AM ET

Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. (CCO ) today reported results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2008.

Clear Channel Communications completed the merger with a group of equity funds sponsored by Bain Capital Partners, LLC and Thomas H. Lee Partners, L.P. on July 30, 2008. Clear Channel Communications is now owned indirectly by CC Media Holdings, Inc. ("CC Media Holdings"). The merger was accounted for as a purchase business combination in conformity with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 141, Business Combinations ("Statement 141"), and Emerging Issues Task Force Issue 88-16, Basis in Leveraged Buyout Transactions ("EITF 88-16"). Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 54, Push Down Basis of Accounting Required in Certain Limited Circumstances ("SAB 54"), requires the application of push down accounting in situations where the ownership of an entity has changed. As a result, the post-merger financial statements of the Company reflect the new basis of accounting.

Accordingly, the financial statements as of September 30, 2008 reflect Clear Channel Communications’ fair value basis resulting from the merger that has been pushed down to the Company. A portion of the consideration paid by Clear Channel Communications has been allocated to the assets and liabilities acquired at their respective fair values at July 30, 2008. The remaining portion was recorded at the continuing shareholders basis, due to the fact that certain shares of Clear Channel Communications’ were exchanged for shares of CC Media Holdings’ Class A common stock. Excess consideration after this allocation was recorded as goodwill. Clear Channel Communications has estimated the fair value of the acquired assets and liabilities as of the merger date utilizing information available at the time the financial statements were prepared. These estimates are subject to refinement until all pertinent information is obtained. Clear Channel Communications is currently in the process of obtaining third-party valuations of certain of the acquired assets and liabilities in order to allocate the purchase price. Clear Channel Communications will complete its purchase price allocation within one year of the closing of the acquisition. The final allocation of the purchase price may be different than the initial allocation.

The Company reported revenues of $813.4 million in the third quarter of 2008, a 0.5% decrease from the $817.5 million reported for the third quarter of 2007. Included in the Company’s revenue is a $20.2 million increase due to movements in foreign exchange; excluding the effects of these movements in foreign exchange, the revenue decline would have been 3%. See reconciliation of revenue excluding effects of foreign exchange to revenue at the end of this press release.

Clear Channel Outdoor’s operating expenses increased 7% to $605.5 million during the third quarter of 2008 compared to 2007. Included in the Company’s third quarter 2008 expenses is an $18.1 million increase due to movements in foreign exchange; excluding the effects of these movements in foreign exchange, growth in expenses would have been 4%. See reconciliation of expenses excluding effects of foreign exchange to expenses at the end of this press release. Also included in the Company’s third quarter 2008 operating expenses is approximately $3.0 million of non-cash compensation expense. This compares to non-cash compensation expense in operating expenses of $2.3 million in the third quarter of 2007.

Clear Channel Outdoor’s net income and diluted earnings per share were $9.1 million and $0.03, respectively, during the third quarter of 2008. This compares to net income of $54.7 million or $0.15 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2007. Clear Channel Outdoor’s third quarter 2008 net income included an approximate $9.0 million loss or $0.03 per diluted share on the impairment of a nonconsolidated affiliate. Excluding this loss, Clear Channel Outdoor’s third quarter 2008 net income would have been approximately $18.1 million or $0.06 per diluted share. See reconciliation of net income and diluted earnings per share at the end of this release.

The Company’s OIBDAN was $194.6 million in the third quarter of 2008, an 18% decrease from the third quarter of 2007. The Company defines OIBDAN as net income adjusted to exclude non-cash compensation expense and the following line items presented in its Statement of Operations: Minority interest, net of tax; Income tax benefit (expense); Other (expense) income - net; Equity in earnings of nonconsolidated affiliates; Interest expense; Gain on disposition of assets - net; and, D&A. See reconciliation of OIBDAN to net income at the end of this press release.

"Throughout its history, the Outdoor category has proven remarkably resilient. Still,economic pressures in the US and abroad are having their effect on our advertisers and our business performance. Overall revenues in the third quarter were virtually flat with the same period last year -- our international operations grew modestly while revenues in the Americas wereoff slightly.As we navigate these near-term difficulties, we are committed to measures that will position our businesses defensively. Cost efficiencies, disciplined capital spending and execution are paramount. WeareconfidentthatClear Channel Outdoor’sstrong and flexible assets are well-positioned for the long term -- our geographic diversity, digital platform and premium positioning world-wideare unique and valuable properties," commented Mark Mays, Chief Executive Officer of Clear Channel Outdoor.

Paul J. Meyer, Global President and Chief Operating Officer, commented, "In the third quarter, the Americas’ results reflect overall a decline in national business and a more modest decline in local business, partially offset by another strong performance from our Latin American markets and our growing U.S. digital networks. We continue to control core expenses, but overall expenses are still being negatively impacted by new contracts. Internationally, we began to experience the impact of the growing global slowdown across our Western European businesses, particularly in France and the UK. The effect of this slowdown was mitigated somewhat by strong performances in our Eastern European markets and China, which benefited significantly from Olympic advertising."

Americas

Revenue declined approximately $16.6 million during the third quarter of 2008 compared to the same period of 2007 driven by a decline in bulletin and poster revenues. The decline in bulletin and poster revenues was driven principally by a decline in occupancy compared to the third quarter of 2007. A decline in national advertising had the biggest adverse impact on occupancy. Partially offsetting the decline in bulletin and poster revenues was an increase in digital revenues primarily driven by an increase in the number of digital displays. The top five advertising categories during the quarter were telecommunications, retail, media, automotive and amusements. With the exception of Los Angeles and Milwaukee, two of the markets where the Company has installed digital networks, results for most U.S. markets reflected slowing demand during the quarter. The Company’s Latin American markets experienced significant growth in both revenue and OIBDAN during the quarter.

Operating expenses increased $18.7 million during the third quarter of 2008 compared to the same period of 2007 primarily from an $11.6 million increase in site-lease expenses. The increase in site-lease expenses is attributable to new taxi contracts in New York and Las Vegas, new airport contracts in San Jose and Seattle and new street furniture contracts in San Francisco.

International

Revenue increased approximately $12.5 million during the third quarter of 2008 compared to the same period of 2007 including the positive impact in foreign exchange of $18.5 million. Also contributing to the increased revenue was growth in China principally from the effects of the Olympics. Partially offsetting the revenue growth was a decline in France mostly from the loss of a contract for advertising on railways. Revenues in the United Kingdom also declined in the third quarter of 2008. The top five international advertising categories were retail, food products, telecommunications, automotive and entertainment. Leading markets during the quarter included China, Finland, Romania, Turkey, Poland, Russia and the Baltics.

Operating expenses increased $21.1 million primarily from an increase of $16.9 million from movements in foreign exchange.

Digital Conversion

The Company installed 56 digital displays during the quarter, compared to 27 during the same period last year. The Company has installed a total of 137 units through the first nine months of the year. The Company expects to install in excess of 150 digital boards in 2008.

Current Information and Expectations

The Company has previously provided information regarding its revenue pacings and certain expectations related to 2008 operating results. That information was last provided on May 9, 2008 and has not been updated. The Company is not providing such information in this release and does not anticipate providing this information in the future. The Company will not update or revise any previously disclosed information. Investors are cautioned to no longer rely on such prior information given the passage of time and other reasons discussed in the Company’s reports filed with the SEC. Future results could differ materially than the forward-looking information previously disclosed.

The Company periodically reviews its disclosure practices in the ordinary course of its business and management determined to cease providing this information after taking into consideration a number of factors. There should be nothing read into the timing of this change in policy, nor should any inferences be drawn relative to internal or external economic factors.

The global economic slowdown has adversely affected advertising revenues across the Company’s business in recent months. The Company will perform its annual impairment test in the fourth quarter of 2008 and it is possible that a continued deterioration in advertising revenues could result in the Company recognizing an impairment charge.

The discussion in this release is presented on a combined basis of the post-merger period for 2008. The 2008 post-merger and pre-merger results are presented below, but are not discussed separately. The Company believes that the discussion on a combined basis is more meaningful as it allows the results of the operations to be analyzed to comparable periods in 2007.

The following information in Table 1 is presented for two periods: post-merger and pre-merger. Purchase accounting adjustments pursuant to the aforementioned standards were pushed down to the opening balance sheet of the Company on July 31, 2008 as the merger occurred at the close of business on July 30, 2008 and the results of operations subsequent to this date reflect the impact of the new basis of accounting. The merger resulted in a new basis of accounting beginning on July 31, 2008 and the financial reporting periods are presented as follows:

-- The period from July 31 through September30, 2008 includes the post-merger period of the Company, reflecting the purchase accounting adjustments related to the merger that were pushed down to the Company.

-- The periods from January1 through July30, 2008 and July 1 through July 30, 2008 include the pre-merger period of the Company.

-- The 2007 periods presented are pre-merger. The consolidated financial statements for all pre-merger periods were prepared using the historical basis of accounting for the Company. As a result of the merger and the associated purchase accounting, the consolidated financial statements of the post-merger periods are not comparable to periods preceding the merger.

Income Taxes

The effective tax rate for the three months ended September 30, 2008 decreased to 35.7% as compared to 38.2% for the three months ended September 30, 2007, primarily due to the favorable settlement of certain state tax return examinations during 2008.

Liquidity and Financial Position

For the nine months ended September 30, 2008, cash flow from operating activities was $447.5 million, cash flow used by investing activities was $308.5 million, cash flow used by financing activities was $195.0 million, and the effect of exchange rate changes on cash was $3.2 million for a net decrease in cash of $52.8 million.

Leverage, defined as total debt including debt to Clear Channel Communications, net of cash, divided by the trailing 12-month OIBDAN, was 2.4x at September 30, 2008.

Supplemental Disclosure Regarding Non-GAAP Financial Information
Operating Income before Depreciation and Amortization (D&A),
Non-cash Compensation Expense and Gain on Disposition of Assets -
Net (OIBDAN)
The following tables set forth Clear Channel Outdoor’s OIBDAN for
the three months ended September 30, 2008 and 2007. The Company
defines OIBDAN as net income adjusted to exclude non-cash
compensation expense and the following line items presented in its
Statement of Operations: Minority interest, net of tax; Income tax
benefit (expense); Other (expense) income - net; Equity in earnings
of nonconsolidated affiliates; Interest expense; Gain on disposition
of assets - net; and D&A.
The Company uses OIBDAN, among other things, to evaluate the
Company’s operating performance. This measure is among the primary
measures used by management for planning and forecasting of future
periods, as well as for measuring performance for compensation of
executives and other members of management. This measure is an
important indicator of the Company’s operational strength and
performance of its business because it provides a link between
profitability and cash flows from operating activities. It is also a
primary measure used by management in evaluating companies as
potential acquisition targets.
The Company believes the presentation of this measure is relevant
and useful for investors because it allows investors to view
performance in a manner similar to the method used by the Company’s
management. It helps improve investors’ ability to understand the
Company’s operating performance and makes it easier to compare the
Company’s results with other companies that have different capital
structures, stock option structures or tax rates. In addition, this
measure is also among the primary measures used externally by the
Company’s investors, analysts and peers in its industry for purposes
of valuation and comparing the operating performance of the Company
to other companies in its industry.
Since OIBDAN is not a measure calculated in accordance with GAAP, it
should not be considered in isolation of, or as a substitute for,
net income as an indicator of operating performance and may not be
comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies.
OIBDAN is not necessarily a measure of the Company’s ability to fund
its cash needs. As it excludes certain financial information
compared with operating income and net income (loss), the most
directly comparable GAAP financial measures, users of this financial
information should consider the types of events and transactions,
which are excluded.
In addition, because a significant portion of the Company’s
advertising operations are conducted in foreign markets, principally
France and the United Kingdom, management reviews the operating
results from its foreign operations on a constant dollar basis. A
constant dollar basis (i.e. a foreign currency adjustment is made to
the 2008 actual foreign revenues and expenses at average 2007
foreign exchange rates) allows for comparison of operations
independent of foreign exchange movements.
As required by the SEC, the Company provides reconciliations below
to the most directly comparable amounts reported under GAAP,
including: (i) OIBDAN for each segment to consolidated operating
income; (ii) Revenue excluding foreign exchange effects to revenue;
(iii) Expense excluding foreign exchange effects to expense (iv)
OIBDAN to net income and (v) Net income and diluted earnings per
share excluding certain items discussed earlier.
