The Madison Square Garden Company Reports Fiscal 2019 Third Quarter Results

NEW YORK, May 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Madison Square Garden Company (NYSE: MSG) today reported financial results for the fiscal third quarter ended March 31, 2019.

For the fiscal 2019 third quarter, the Company generated revenues of $517.2 million, operating income of $38.5 million and adjusted operating income of $84.1 million.(1)(2)  Prior period results have not been restated to reflect the adoption of ASC Topic 606 and, therefore, the Company’s consolidated and segment results for the fiscal 2019 third quarter are not directly comparable to the results for the third quarter of fiscal 2018.(3)

Excluding the impact of ASC Topic 606, fiscal 2019 third quarter revenues would have been $475.8 million, an increase of 4% as compared with the prior year period.  In addition, fiscal 2019 third quarter operating income would have decreased by $15.7 million to a loss of $7.4 million and adjusted operating income would have decreased by $11.9 million to $38.2 million, both as compared to the prior year period.(4)  Fiscal 2019 third quarter financial results, both including and excluding the impact of ASC Topic 606, reflect $8.3 million in revenue, operating income and adjusted operating income related to prior periods due to the renewal of an agreement with the Company's key ticketing platform provider.

Executive Chairman and CEO Jim Dolan said, “We remain confident that we are executing on a plan that positions us for long-term growth. This plan includes our MSG Sphere initiative, where we made important progress this past quarter, as well as the proposed spin-off of our sports business, which remains on track to be completed during the second half of this calendar year.”

  1. See page 3 of this earnings release for the definition of adjusted operating income (loss) included in the discussion of non-GAAP financial measures.
  2. The Company records TAO Group’s operating results in its consolidated statements of operations on a three-month lag basis.
  3. Effective July 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (ASC Topic 606), the new accounting standard for revenue recognition.  The most significant impact of ASC Topic 606 in fiscal 2019 is a change in the timing of when certain Company revenue streams and professional sports team-related fulfillment expenses are recognized during the fiscal year.
  4. See page 7 of this earnings release for a reconciliation of adjusted operating income (loss) to adjusted operating income (loss) excluding the impact of ASC Topic 606.
  5. Corporate and Other primarily consists of unallocated corporate general and administrative costs (including costs associated with business development initiatives) and unallocated venue-related depreciation and amortization expense, as well as inter-segment eliminations.

MSG Entertainment
For the fiscal 2019 third quarter, MSG Entertainment revenues of $166.5 million increased 4%, as compared to the prior year period. This primarily reflects higher TAO Group revenues and increased revenues for the Christmas Spectacular Starring the Radio City Rockettes production, partially offset by other net revenue decreases.  The increase in TAO Group revenues reflects the impact of new venue openings, partially offset by the impact of one less week in the quarter as compared to the prior year period due to the timing of the retail calendar.  Increased Christmas Spectacular production revenues primarily reflects higher ticket-related revenue, a result of 13 performances in the current year quarter as compared with three performances in the fiscal 2018 third quarter and revenue related to prior periods due to the renewal of the ticketing agreement, partially offset by lower average per-show paid attendance in the current year quarter.

Fiscal 2019 third quarter operating income decreased by $4.1 million to a loss of $1.7 million and adjusted operating income decreased by $2.5 million to $7.2 million, both as compared to the prior year period.  This primarily reflects higher direct operating expenses and selling, general and administrative expenses, partially offset by the increase in revenues.  The increase in direct operating expenses was primarily due to higher TAO Group expenses and, to a lesser extent, higher expenses for the Christmas Spectacular production, partially offset by other net expense decreases.  The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily due to higher professional fees, employee compensation and related benefits and corporate general and administrative expenses, partially offset by other net cost decreases.

Excluding the impact of ASC Topic 606, fiscal 2019 third quarter MSG Entertainment revenues would have been $170.3 million, an increase of 7% as compared to the prior year period.  In addition, fiscal 2019 third quarter operating income would have decreased by $4.6 million to a loss of $2.2 million and adjusted operating income would have decreased by $3.0 million to $6.7 million, both as compared to the prior year period.  Financial results for the fiscal 2019 third quarter include $3.7 million in revenue, operating income and adjusted operating income related to prior periods due to the renewal of the ticketing agreement.

MSG Sports
For the fiscal 2019 third quarter, MSG Sports revenues of $351.6 million increased 17%, as compared to the prior year period.  This primarily reflects increases in local media rights fees from MSG Networks Inc., professional sports teams’ pre/regular season ticket-related revenue and suite license fee revenue, all mainly due to the impact of ASC Topic 606.

Third quarter operating income of $96.5 million increased by 80% and adjusted operating income of $103.1 million increased by 74%, both as compared to the prior year period.  This reflects the increase in revenues, partially offset by higher direct operating expenses and selling, general and administrative expenses.  The increase in direct operating expenses was primarily driven by higher net provisions for certain team personnel transactions and, to a lesser extent, higher other team operating expenses, partially offset by lower team personnel compensation costs.  The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily due to higher employee compensation and related benefits, marketing costs, and corporate general and administrative costs, partially offset by other cost decreases.

Excluding the impact of ASC Topic 606, fiscal 2019 third quarter MSG Sports revenues would have been $306.3 million, an increase of 2% as compared to the prior year period.  In addition, fiscal 2019 third quarter operating income would have been $51.1 million, a decrease of $2.6 million, and adjusted operating income would have been $57.7 million, a decrease of $1.4 million, both as compared to the prior year period.  Financial results for the fiscal 2019 third quarter include $4.6 million in revenue, operating income and adjusted operating income related to prior periods due to the renewal of the ticketing agreement.

Corporate and Other
For the fiscal 2019 third quarter, Corporate and Other’s operating loss of $51.4 million and adjusted operating loss of $26.2 million increased by 24% and 40%, respectively, both as compared with the prior year period, mainly due to higher selling, general and administrative expenses.  The increase in selling, general and administrative expenses was primarily due to higher employee compensation and related benefits, as well as higher expenses related to the Company's business development initiatives and costs associated with the proposed spin-off transaction.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
We define adjusted operating income (loss), which is a non-GAAP financial measure, as operating income (loss) before 1) depreciation, amortization and impairments of property and equipment and intangible assets, 2) share-based compensation expense or benefit, 3) restructuring charges or credits, 4) gains or losses on sales or dispositions of businesses and 5) the impact of purchase accounting adjustments related to business acquisitions.  Because it is based upon operating income (loss), adjusted operating income (loss) also excludes interest expense (including cash interest expense) and other non-operating income and expense items. We believe that the exclusion of share-based compensation expense or benefit allows investors to better track the performance of the various operating units of our business without regard to the settlement of an obligation that is not expected to be made in cash.  Effective July 1, 2018, we adopted ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (ASC Topic 606), the new accounting standard for revenue recognition.  The most significant impact of ASC Topic 606 in fiscal year 2019 is a change in the timing of when certain Company revenue streams and professional sports team-related fulfillment expenses are recognized during the fiscal year.  During fiscal year 2019, while we are presenting transition disclosures related to ASC Topic 606, we also present adjusted operating income (loss) excluding the impact of ASC Topic 606.

We believe adjusted operating income (loss) including and excluding the impact of ASC Topic 606 are appropriate measures for evaluating the operating performance of our business segments and the Company on a consolidated basis.  Adjusted operating income (loss) and similar measures with similar titles are common performance measures used by investors and analysts to analyze our performance.  Internally, we use revenues and adjusted operating income (loss) as the most important indicators of our business performance, and evaluate management’s effectiveness with specific reference to these indicators, including, during fiscal year 2019, evaluating management's performance with reference to adjusted operating income (loss) excluding the impact of ASC Topic 606. Adjusted operating income (loss) should be viewed as a supplement to and not a substitute for operating income (loss), net income (loss), cash flows from operating activities, and other measures of performance and/or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Since adjusted operating income (loss) is not a measure of performance calculated in accordance with GAAP, this measure may not be comparable to similar measures with similar titles used by other companies. For a reconciliation of operating income (loss) to adjusted operating income (loss), please see page 5 of this release. For a reconciliation of adjusted operating income (loss) to adjusted operating income (loss) excluding the impact of ASC Topic 606, please see pages 7 and 8 of this release.

In the first quarter of fiscal 2019, the Company adopted ASU No. 2017-07. The adoption of this standard resulted in the non-service cost components of net periodic benefit cost to be presented separately in the income statement from the service cost component and the non-service cost components to no longer be included in the subtotal for operating income. As this standard was applied retrospectively, the Company reclassified $0.3 million and $0.7 million of net periodic benefit cost from direct operating expenses and selling, general and administrative expenses, respectively, to miscellaneous income (expense) within other income (expense) in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2018.  For the nine months ended March 31, 2018, the Company reclassified $0.8 million and $2.2 million of net periodic benefit cost from direct operating expenses and selling, general and administrative expenses, respectively, to miscellaneous income (expense) within other income (expense) in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations.  Furthermore, all prior period amounts presented throughout this release reflect reclassifications made as a result of the adoption of ASU No. 2017-07.
