WASHINGTON – The Washington Post Company (NYSE: WPO) today reported income from continuing operations attributable to common shares of $44.7 million ($6.02 per share) for the second quarter of 2013, compared to $36.1 million ($4.76 per share) for the second quarter of 2012.

Division Results

 

Education

 

Education division revenue totaled $548.2 million for the second quarter of 2013, a 1% decline from revenue of $551.8 million for the second quarter of 2012. Kaplan reported second quarter 2013 operating income of $23.7 million, compared to $3.7 million in the second quarter of 2012.

 

For the first six months of 2013, education division revenue totaled $1,076.0 million, a 2% decline from revenue of $1,098.5 million for the same period of 2012. Kaplan reported operating income of $19.7 million for the first six months of 2013, compared to an operating loss of $8.2 million for the first six months of 2012.

 

In response to student demand levels, Kaplan has formulated and implemented restructuring plans at its various businesses, with the objective of establishing lower cost levels in future periods. Across all businesses, restructuring costs totaled $4.9 million and $14.4 million in the second quarter and first six months of 2013, respectively, compared to $5.0 million in the second quarter and first six months of 2012. Kaplan currently expects to incur approximately $10 million in additional restructuring costs for the remainder of 2013 at Kaplan Higher Education (KHE) and Kaplan International in conjunction with completing these restructuring plans. Kaplan may also incur additional restructuring charges in 2013 as Kaplan management continues to evaluate its cost structure.

KHE includes Kaplan’s domestic postsecondary education businesses, made up of fixed-facility colleges and online postsecondary and career programs. KHE also includes the domestic professional training and other continuing education businesses.

 

In September 2012, KHE announced a plan to consolidate its market presence at certain of its fixed-facility campuses. Under this plan, KHE ceased new enrollments at nine ground campuses as it considered alternatives for these locations, and is in the process of consolidating operations of four other campuses into existing, nearby locations. Revenues at these campuses represented approximately 4% of KHE’s total revenues in 2012. In the fourth quarter of 2012, KHE also began implementing plans to consolidate other facilities and reduce its workforce. In connection with these and other plans, KHE incurred $2.6 million and $11.6 million in total restructuring costs in the second quarter and first six months of 2013, respectively, compared to $3.8 million in severance costs for the second quarter and first six months of 2012. For the second quarter of 2013, these costs included accelerated depreciation ($1.4 million), severance ($0.6 million) and lease obligation losses ($0.6 million). For the first six months of 2013, these costs included accelerated depreciation ($5.0 million), severance ($1.4 million), lease obligation losses ($4.3 million) and other items ($0.9 million). In the first six months of 2013, nine of the KHE campuses were closed.

 

In the second quarter and first six months of 2013, higher education revenue declined 6% and 9%, respectively, due largely to declines in average enrollments that reflect weaker market demand over the past year and the impact of campuses in the process of closing. These declines were partially offset by a revenue increase arising from trial period modifications and process improvements. 

 

KHE operating income increased significantly in the second quarter and first six months of 2013, due largely to expense reductions associated with lower enrollments and recent restructuring efforts, partially offset by lower revenue and restructuring costs noted above.

 

New student enrollments at KHE increased 21% and 3% in the second quarter and first six months of 2013, respectively. New student enrollments were positively impacted by trial period modifications and process improvements, partially offset by the impact of closed campuses and those planned for closure that are no longer recruiting students.

Kaplan Test Preparation (KTP) includes Kaplan’s standardized test preparation and tutoring offerings. KTP revenue increased 7% and 8% for the second quarter and first six months of 2013, respectively. Enrollment increased 2% and 1% for the second quarter and first six months of 2013, respectively, driven by strength in pre-college, nursing and bar review programs, offset by declines in graduate programs. KTP operating results improved in the first six months of 2013 due largely to increased revenues.

 

Kaplan International includes English-language programs and postsecondary education and professional training businesses outside the United States. Kaplan International revenue increased 5% and 6% in the second quarter and first six months of 2013, respectively, due to enrollment growth in the pathways, English-language and Singapore higher education programs. Kaplan International operating income declined in the second quarter and first six months of 2013 due to restructuring costs in Australia and reduced earnings in Europe, partially offset by strong results in Singapore. In the second quarter of 2012, International results benefited from a net $1.9 million adjustment that resulted from a favorable adjustment to certain items recorded in prior periods. In the second quarter and first six months of 2013, restructuring costs totaled $2.3 million and $2.6 million, respectively, in Australia, where Kaplan has been consolidating and restructuring its businesses to optimize operations; such costs are largely made up of severance costs and other expenses to teach-out students for certain programs that are being eliminated. 

 

Corporate represents unallocated expenses of Kaplan, Inc.’s corporate office, other minor businesses and shared activities.

Cable Television

 

Cable television division revenue increased 5% in the second quarter of 2013 to $204.6 million, from $195.6 million for the second quarter of 2012; for the first six months of 2013, revenue increased 5% to $404.7 million, from $385.8 million in the same period of 2012. The revenue increase for the first six months of 2013 is due to recent rate increases for many subscribers, growth in commercial sales and a reduction in promotional discounts. The increase was partially offset by a decline in basic video subscribers, as the cable division focuses its efforts on churn reduction and retention of its high-value subscribers.

 

Cable television division operating income increased 16% to $44.7 million, from $38.4 million in the second quarter of 2012; for the first six months of 2013, operating income increased 14% to $81.3 million, from $71.2 million for the first six months of 2012. The division’s operating income improved due to increased revenues and reductions in labor costs and bad debt expense, partially offset by higher programming and depreciation costs. 

 

At June 30, 2013, Primary Service Units (PSUs) were down 3% from the prior year due to a decline in basic video subscribers. A summary of PSUs is as follows:

Newspaper Publishing

 

Newspaper publishing division revenue totaled $138.4 million for the second quarter of 2013, down 1% from revenue of $139.2 million for the second quarter of 2012; division revenue declined 2% to $265.7 million for the first six months of 2013, from $271.7 million for the first six months of 2012. Print advertising revenue at The Washington Post in the second quarter of 2013 was $54.5 million, down 4% from the second quarter of 2012; print advertising revenue was $103.1 million for the first six months of 2013, down 6% from the first six months of 2012. The decline is largely due to reductions in retail and general advertising. Revenue generated by the Company’s newspaper online publishing activities, primarily washingtonpost.com and Slate, increased 15% to $29.8 million for the second quarter of 2013 versus the second quarter of 2012; newspaper online revenues increased 12% to $55.6 million for the first six months of 2013 versus the first six months of 2012. Display online advertising revenue increased 25% and 21% for the second quarter and first six months of 2013, respectively. Online classified advertising revenue declined 7% for both the second quarter and first six months of 2013.

 

For the first six months of 2013, Post daily and Sunday circulation declined 7.1% and 7.6%, respectively, compared to the same periods of the prior year. For the six months ended June 30, 2013, average daily circulation at The Washington Post totaled 447,700 and average Sunday circulation totaled 646,700.

 

In February 2013, the Company announced a Voluntary Retirement Incentive Program (VRIP) which was offered to certain employees of the Post. The total VRIP expense was $20.4 million, which is being funded from the assets of the Company’s pension plan. Of this amount, $12.0 million was recorded in the first quarter of 2013 and $8.4 million was recorded in the second quarter of 2013. The Post also implemented a Separation Incentive Program in February 2013 that resulted in an additional $2.3 million in early retirement program expense in the first quarter of 2013, which is also being funded from the assets of the Company pension plan. In addition, voluntary severance and other early retirement expense of $0.7 million and $2.2 million was recorded at the newspaper publishing division in the second quarter and first six months of 2013, respectively, compared to $3.4 million and $5.3 million for the second quarter and first six months of 2012, respectively. 

 

The newspaper publishing division reported an operating loss of $14.8 million in the second quarter of 2013, compared to an operating loss of $12.6 million in the second quarter of 2012. For the first six months of 2013, the newspaper publishing division reported an operating loss of $49.3 million, compared to an operating loss of $33.2 million for the first six months of 2012. These operating losses include noncash pension expense of $16.8 million and $7.7 million for the second quarter of 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $39.7 million and $16.3 million for the first six months of 2013 and 2012, respectively. The decline in operating results for the second quarter and first half of 2013 is due to the $5.7 million

and $19.6 million increase in early retirement and severance expense, respectively, and revenue reductions discussed above, offset partially by a decline in other operating expenses. Newsprint expense was down 17% and 14% for the second quarter and first six months of 2013, respectively, primarily due to a decline in newsprint consumption.

 

Television Broadcasting

 

Revenue for the television broadcasting division increased 4% to $99.3 million in the second quarter of 2013, from $95.6 million in the same period of 2012; operating income for the second quarter of 2013 increased 9% to $47.7 million, from $43.7 million in the same period of 2012. For the first six months of 2013, revenue increased 4% to $184.6 million, from $177.1 million in the same period of 2012; operating income for the first six months of 2013 increased 11% to $83.1 million, from $74.7 million in the same period of 2012.  

 

The increase in revenue and operating income reflects growth in advertising demand across many product categories; incremental advertising revenue from the NBA finals broadcast at the division’s ABC affiliates in Miami and San Antonio; and increased retransmission revenues. The increase in revenue and operating income was offset partially by a $5.3 million and $8.1 million decline in political advertising revenue in the second quarter and first six months of 2013, respectively.

 

Other Businesses

 

Other businesses includes the operating results of Social Code, a marketing solutions provider helping companies with marketing on social media platforms; Celtic Healthcare, a provider of home health care and hospice services in the northeastern and mid-Atlantic regions that was acquired by the Company in November 2012; and WaPo Labs, a digital team focused on emerging technologies and new product development.  

 

On August 1, 2013, the Company completed the acquisition of Forney Corporation, a global supplier of products and systems that control and monitor combustion processes in electric utility and industrial applications.

 

Corporate Office

 

Corporate office includes the expenses of the Company’s corporate office as well as a net pension credit.

 

Equity in Earnings (Losses) of Affiliates

 

The Company holds a 16.5% interest in Classified Ventures, LLC and interests in several other affiliates.

 

The Company’s equity in earnings of affiliates, net, was $3.9 million for the second quarter of 2013, compared to $3.3 million for the second quarter of 2012. For the first six months of 2013, the Company’s equity in earnings of affiliates, net, totaled $7.3 million, compared to $7.2 million for the same period of 2012.

 

Other Non-Operating Income (Expense)

 

The Company recorded other non-operating expense, net, of $12.9 million for the second quarter of 2013, compared to $0.6 million for the second quarter of 2012. The second quarter 2013 non-operating expense, net, included $12.6 million in unrealized foreign currency losses and other items. The second quarter 2012 non-operating expense, net, included $2.6 million in unrealized foreign currency losses, offset by other items.

 

The Company recorded non-operating expense, net, of $16.9 million for the first six months of 2013, compared to other non-operating income, net, of $8.0 million for the same period of the prior year. The 2013 non-operating expense, net, included $17.2 million in unrealized foreign currency losses and other items. The 2012 non-operating income, net, included a $7.3 million gain on sales of cost method investments, $0.1 million in unrealized foreign currency gains and other items.

Net Interest Expense

 

The Company incurred net interest expense of $8.5 million and $17.0 million for the second quarter and first six months of 2013, respectively, compared to $8.2 million and $16.3 million for the same periods of 2012. At June 30, 2013, the Company had $450.0 million in borrowings outstanding, at an average interest rate of 7.0%.

 

Provision for Income Taxes

 

The effective tax rate for income from continuing operations for the first six months of 2013 was 42.1%, compared to 39.6% for the first six months of 2012. The high effective tax rate for the first six months of 2013 and 2012 results primarily from losses in Australia for which no tax benefit is recorded.

 

Discontinued Operations

 

In March 2013, the Company completed the sale of The Herald, a daily and Sunday newspaper headquartered in Everett, WA. Kaplan sold Kidum in August 2012, EduNeering in April 2012 and Kaplan Learning Technologies (KLT) in February 2012. The Company also divested its interest in Avenue100 Media Solutions in July 2012. Consequently, the Company’s income from continuing operations excludes these businesses, which have been reclassified to discontinued operations, net of tax.

 

The sale of The Herald resulted in a pre-tax loss of $0.1 million that was recorded in the first quarter of 2013. The sale of KLT resulted in a pre-tax loss of $3.1 million that was recorded in the first quarter of 2012. The sale of EduNeering resulted in a pre-tax gain of $29.5 million that was recorded in the second quarter of 2012. In the first quarter of 2012, in connection with each of the sales of the Company’s stock in KLT and EduNeering, the Company recorded $23.2 million of income tax benefits related to the excess of the outside stock tax basis over the net book value of the net assets acquired.

 

Earnings (Loss) Per Share

 

The calculation of diluted earnings per share for the second quarter and first six months of 2013 was based on 7,283,116 and 7,276,421 weighted average shares outstanding, respectively, compared to 7,545,150 and 7,579,888, respectively, for the second quarter and first six months of 2012. At June 30, 2013, there were 7,422,238 shares outstanding and the Company had remaining authorization from the Board of Directors to purchase up to 180,993 shares of Class B common stock.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION

THE WASHINGTON POST COMPANY

(Unaudited)

In addition to the results reported in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP) included in this press release, the Company has provided information regarding income from continuing operations, excluding certain items described below, reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Management believes these non-GAAP measures, when read in conjunction with the Company‘s GAAP financials, provide useful information to investors by offering:

§  the ability to make meaningful period-to-period comparisons of the Company’s ongoing results;

§  the ability to identify trends in the Company’s underlying business; and

§  a better understanding of how management plans and measures the Company’s underlying business.

Income from continuing operations, excluding certain items, should not be considered substitutes or alternatives to computations calculated in accordance with and required by GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures should be read only in conjunction with financial information presented on a GAAP basis. 

The following table reconciles the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures:
