NOTES TO INTERIM UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

JUNE 30, 2011

 

1.   Description of Business and Basis of Presentation

LBI Media Holdings, Inc. (“LBI Media Holdings”) was incorporated in Delaware on June 23, 2003 and is a wholly owned subsidiary of Liberman Broadcasting, Inc., a Delaware corporation (successor in interest to LBI Holdings I, Inc.) (the “Parent” or “Liberman Broadcasting”). Pursuant to an Assignment and Exchange Agreement dated September 29, 2003, between the Parent and LBI Media Holdings, the Parent assigned to LBI Media Holdings all of its right, title and interest in 100 shares of common stock of LBI Media, Inc. (“LBI Media”) (constituting all of the outstanding shares of LBI Media) in exchange for 100 shares of common stock of LBI Media Holdings. Thus, upon consummation of the exchange, LBI Media Holdings became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Parent, and LBI Media became a wholly owned subsidiary of LBI Media Holdings.

LBI Media Holdings is not engaged in any business operations and has not acquired any assets or incurred any liabilities, other than the acquisition of stock of LBI Media, the issuance and purchase of a portion of its senior discount notes (see Note 5) and the operations of its subsidiaries. Accordingly, its only material source of cash is dividends and distributions from its subsidiaries, which are subject to restrictions by LBI Media’s senior credit facility and the indenture governing the senior subordinated notes and senior secured notes issued by LBI Media (see Note 5). Parent-only condensed financial information of LBI Media Holdings on a stand-alone basis is presented in Note 12.

LBI Media Holdings and its wholly owned subsidiaries (collectively referred to as the “Company”) own and operate radio and television stations located in California, Texas, Arizona, Utah, New York, Colorado, and Illinois. The Company operates its New York television station and three of its radio stations in its California and Texas markets under time brokerage agreements. The Company also owns television production facilities that are used to produce programming for Company-owned and affiliated television stations. The Company sells commercial airtime on its radio and television stations to local, regional and national advertisers.

The Company’s KHJ-AM, KVNR-AM, KWIZ-FM, KBUE-FM, KBUA-FM, KEBN-FM and KRQB-FM radio stations serve the greater Los Angeles, California market (including Riverside/San Bernardino); its KQUE-AM, KJOJ-AM, KEYH-AM, KJOJ-FM, KTJM-FM, KQQK-FM, KNTE-FM and KXGJ-FM radio stations serve the Houston, Texas market and its KNOR-FM, KZMP-AM, KTCY-FM, KZZA-FM, KZMP-FM and KBOC-FM radio stations serve the Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas market.

The Company’s television stations, KRCA, KSDX, KVPA, KETD, KZJL, KMPX, KPNZ, WASA and WESV serve the Los Angeles, California, San Diego, California, Phoenix, Arizona, Denver, Colorado, Houston, Texas, Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, Salt Lake City, Utah, New York, New York, and Chicago, Illinois markets, respectively.

The Company’s two television studio facilities in Burbank, California, and one each in Houston, Texas, and Dallas, Texas, are owned and operated by its indirect, wholly owned subsidiaries.

In 2009, the Company began entering into affiliation agreements with certain television stations to broadcast its EstrellaTV network programming on their primary or digital multicast channels. Currently, this affiliate network consists of television stations in various states, and along with the Company’s owned and operated television stations, serves 37 designated market areas, including nine each in California and Texas, four in Florida, three in Arizona, two in Nevada, and one each in Colorado, Illinois, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Utah, and Washington.

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions for Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year. The condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s December 31, 2010 consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K (the “Annual Report”). All terms used but not defined elsewhere herein have the meanings ascribed to them in the Annual Report.

The condensed consolidated balance sheet at December 31, 2010 has been derived from the audited financial statements at that date but does not include all the information and footnotes required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. The condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of LBI Media Holdings and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

2.   Fair Value Measurements

Accounting Standards Codification Topic 820 “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures” (“ASC 820”) establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands related disclosures. The fair value framework requires the categorization of assets and liabilities into three levels based upon the assumptions (inputs) used to price the assets or liabilities. Level 1 provides the most reliable measure of fair value, whereas Level 3 generally requires significant management judgment. The three levels are defined as follows:

 

  Level 1: Inputs are unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities that can be assessed at a measurement date.

 

  Level 2: Observable inputs other than those included in Level 1. For example, quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets or quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in inactive markets.

 

  Level 3: Unobservable inputs reflecting management’s own assumptions about the inputs used in pricing the asset or liability.

As of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, respectively, the fair values of the Company’s financial liabilities are categorized as follows:

 

     Total      Level 1      Level 2      Level 3  
     (In thousands)  

As of June 30, 2011

           

Liabilities subject to fair value measurement:

           

Interest rate swap (a)

   $ 1,611       $ —         $ 1,611      $ —

   $ 1,611      $ —         $ 1,611      $ —     
  

 

 

    

 

 

    

 

 

    

 

 

 

As of December 31, 2010

           

Liabilities subject to fair value measurement:

           

Interest rate swap (a)

   $ 3,146       $ —         $ 3,146       $ —     
  

 

 

    

 

 

    

 

 

    

 

 

 

Total

   $ 3,146       $ —         $ 3,146       $ —     
  

 

 

    

 

 

    

 

 

    

 

 

 

 

(a) Based on London Interbank Offered Rate (“LIBOR”). See “Long-Term Debt” in Note 5.

Certain assets and liabilities are measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis. This means that certain assets are not measured at fair value on an ongoing basis but are subject to fair value reviews only in certain circumstances. Included in this category are the Company’s radio and television Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) broadcast licenses that are written down to fair value when they are determined to be impaired. As no impairment indicators were noted during the three or six months ended June 30, 2011, no such fair value reviews were conducted during those periods.

During the three months ended June 30, 2010, pursuant to ASC 350-30 “General Intangibles Other Than Goodwill” (“ASC 350-30”) and ASC 360 “Property, Plant and Equipment,” and in connection with an interim impairment test performed for certain asset values as of June 30, 2010, the Company recorded a $1.8 million impairment charge to write down the carrying value of one of its television broadcast licenses and certain other related long-lived assets. The fair values were estimated utilizing Level 3 inputs. A description of the Level 3 inputs and the information used to develop the inputs is discussed below in Note 3.

The fair value of the Company’s financial instruments included in current assets and current liabilities (such as cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, and other similar items) approximate fair value due to the short-term nature of such instruments.

 

   

The fair values of LBI Media’s senior subordinated notes and senior secured notes and LBI Media Holdings’ senior discount notes (see Note 5) were determined using quoted market prices.

 

   

The Company’s other long-term debt has variable interest rates, or rates that the Company believes approximate current market rates, and accordingly, the fair value of those instruments approximates the carrying amounts.

3.   Broadcast Licenses

The Company’s indefinite-lived assets consist of its FCC broadcast licenses. The Company believes its broadcast licenses have indefinite useful lives given that they are expected to indefinitely contribute to the future cash flows of the Company and that they may be continually renewed without substantial cost to the Company. In certain prior years, the licenses were considered to have finite lives and were subject to amortization. Accumulated amortization of broadcast licenses totaled approximately $17.5 million at June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010.

In accordance with ASC 350-30, the Company no longer amortizes its broadcast licenses. The Company tests its broadcast licenses for impairment at least annually or when indicators of impairment are identified. The Company’s valuations principally use the discounted cash flow methodology, an income approach based on market revenue projections, and not company-specific projections, which assumes broadcast licenses are acquired and operated by a third party. This approach incorporates variables such as types of signals, media competition, audience share, market advertising revenue projections, anticipated operating margins and discount rates, without taking into consideration the station’s format or management capabilities. This method calculates the estimated present value that would be paid by a prudent buyer for the Company’s FCC licenses as new radio or television stations. If the discounted cash flows estimated to be generated from these assets are less than the carrying value, an adjustment to reduce the carrying value to the fair market value of the assets is recorded.

The Company generally tests its broadcast licenses for impairment at the individual license level. However, ASC 350-30 states that separately recorded indefinite-lived intangible assets should be combined into a single unit of accounting for purposes of testing impairment if they are operated as a single asset and, as such, are essentially inseparable from one another. The Company aggregates broadcast licenses for impairment testing if their signals are simulcast and are operating as one revenue-producing asset.

As no impairment indicators were noted during the three or six months ended June 30, 2011, no such impairment tests were conducted during those periods.

The Company performed an interim review of the fair market value of one of its television broadcast licenses as of June 30, 2010, as a result of impairment indicators the Company noted related to one of its recently acquired stations. As a result, the Company recorded a $1.0 million impairment charge to write down the carrying value of this broadcast license to its estimated fair value. Below are key assumptions used in the income approach model for estimated fair values for the impairment testing performed as of June 30, 2010:

 

Television Broadcast License

   June 30, 2010
Discount Rate    12.3%
2010 Market Growth Rate    8.5%
Out-year Market Growth Rate    2.5%
Market Share Range (1)    0.7% - 1.3%
Operating Profit Margin Range (1)    (0.8)% - 30.4%

 

(1) Excludes first year of operations.

 

4.   Television Program Costs

Costs incurred for the production of the Company’s original television programs are expensed based on the ratio of the current period’s gross revenues to estimated remaining total gross revenues from all sources (“Ultimate Revenues”) on an individual program basis. Costs of television productions are subject to regular recovery assessments which compare the estimated fair values with the unamortized costs. The amount by which the unamortized costs of television productions exceed their estimated fair values is written off. GAAP sets forth the requirements that must be met before capitalization of program costs is appropriate, including the ability to reasonably estimate Ultimate Revenues generated from television programming and the period in which those revenues would be realized. The Company has determined, based on an evaluation of historical programming data, that certain of its television programs have demonstrated the ability to generate

Table of Contents

gross revenues beyond the initial airing, and accordingly, capitalizes television production costs for certain of its programs, and amortizes those costs to operating expense based on the ratio of the current period’s gross revenues to Ultimate Revenues as described above. Costs related to the production of all other television programs for which the Company does not believe have a useful life beyond the initial airing or does not have revenue directly attributed to production are expensed as incurred. For episodic television series, costs are expensed for each episode as it recognizes the related revenue for the episode. Approximately $12.8 million and $9.3 million of original television programming costs were capitalized as of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, respectively.

Television program rights acquired by the Company from third-party vendors are stated at the lower of unamortized cost or estimated net realizable value. These program rights, together with the related liabilities, are recorded when the license period begins and the program becomes available for broadcast. Program rights are amortized using the straight-line method over the license term. Program rights expected to be amortized in the next year and program rights payable within one year are classified as current assets and current liabilities, respectively. Approximately $1.9 million and $1.6 million of acquired program costs were capitalized as of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, respectively.

The following table sets forth the components of the Company’s unamortized programming costs as of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010:

LBI Media’s 2011 Revolver

In March 2011, LBI Media refinanced its prior $150.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility and $110.0 million senior secured term loan facility with $220.0 million in senior secured notes (discussed below) and a $50.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility (“2011 Revolver”) pursuant to a new credit agreement. The 2011 Revolver includes a $7.5 million swing line sub-facility and allows for letters of credit up to the lesser of $5.0 million or the available remaining revolving commitment amount. There are no scheduled reductions of commitments under the 2011 Revolver. The 2011 Revolver matures in March 2016.

Borrowings under the 2011 Revolver bear interest based on either, at the option of LBI Media, the base rate for base rate loans or the LIBOR rate for LIBOR loans, in each case plus the applicable margin. The base rate will be the higher of (i) Credit Suisse’s prime rate and (ii) the Federal Funds Effective Rate (as published by the Federal Reserve Bank of New

Table of Contents

York) plus 0.50%. The applicable margin for loans under the 2011 Revolver is 3.75% per annum for base rate loans and 4.75% per annum for LIBOR loans. Interest on base rate loans is payable quarterly in arrears and interest on LIBOR loans is payable either monthly, bimonthly or quarterly depending on the interest period elected by LBI Media. All amounts that are not paid when due under the 2011 Revolver will accrue interest at the otherwise applicable rate plus 2.00% until such amounts are paid in full. In addition, LBI Media will pay quarterly in arrears an unused commitment fee of 0.75% per annum.

The 2011 Revolver is guaranteed on a senior secured basis by all of LBI Media’s existing and future wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries. Borrowings under the 2011 Revolver are secured by substantially all of the tangible and intangible assets of LBI Media and its existing and future wholly owned domestic subsidiaries (other than the assets of LBI Media’s subsidiary Empire Burbank Studios, LLC (“Empire”)), including a first priority pledge of all capital stock of each of LBI Media’s subsidiaries. The 2011 Revolver also contains customary covenants that, among other things, restrict the ability of LBI Media and its restricted subsidiaries to: (i) incur or guaranty additional debt; (ii) engage in mergers, acquisitions and asset sales; (iii) make loans and investments; (iv) declare and pay dividends or redeem or repurchase capital stock; (v) transact with affiliates; and (vi) engage in different lines of business. All of these covenants are subject to a number of important limitations and exceptions under the agreements governing the 2011 Revolver. Under the 2011 Revolver, LBI Media must also maintain its material FCC licenses and maintain a maximum revolving facility leverage ratio (as defined in the new credit agreement). As of June 30, 2011, LBI Media was in compliance with all such covenants.

In connection with LBI Media’s entry into the credit agreement relating to the 2011 Revolver and the indenture relating to its 2011 Senior Secured Notes discussed below, LBI Media and the guarantors of the 2011 Revolver and its 2011 Senior Secured Notes also entered into a collateral trust and intercreditor agreement, or the Intercreditor Agreement. The Increditor Agreement defines the relative rights of the lenders under the 2011 Revolver and the holders of the 2011 Senior Secured Notes with respect to the collateral securing LBI Media’s and the guarantors’ respective obligations under the 2011 Revolver and the 2011 Senior Secured Notes. Pursuant to the Intercreditor Agreement, amounts received upon sale of collateral securing the 2011 Revolver and the 2011 Senior Secured Notes following an event of default will be applied first to repay indebtedness under the 2011 Revolver and LBI Media’s existing swap obligations, and then to repay indebtedness under the 2011 Senior Secured Notes and any future indebtedness sharing priority with the 2011 Senior Secured Notes with respect to such repayments.

The indenture governing LBI Media’s 8 1/2% senior subordinated notes, subject to certain exceptions, prohibits borrowing under the 2011 Revolver, the proceeds of which would be used to repay, redeem, repurchase or refinance any of our senior discount notes earlier than one year prior to their stated maturity.

As of June 30, 2011, no amounts were outstanding under the 2011 Revolver.

LBI Media’s Senior Secured Notes due 2019

In March 2011, LBI Media issued approximately $220.0 million aggregate principal amount of 9 1/4% senior secured notes due 2019 (the “2011 Senior Secured Notes”). The 2011 Senior Secured Notes were sold at 98.594% of the principal amount, resulting in gross proceeds of approximately $216.9 million. The Company used the net proceeds to repay all outstanding borrowings under its prior $150.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility and $110.0 million senior secured term loan.

The 2011 Senior Secured Notes are guaranteed on a senior secured basis by all of LBI Media’s existing and future wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries. Subject to certain exceptions and permitted liens, the 2011 Senior Secured Notes and the guarantees are secured on a first priority basis, along with indebtedness under the 2011 Revolver, by liens on substantially all of LBI Media’s and the guarantors’ assets (other than the assets of Empire), including a first priority pledge of all capital stock of each of LBI Media’s domestic subsidiaries. As discussed above, pursuant to the Intercreditor Agreement, amounts received upon the sale of the collateral securing the 2011 Senior Secured Notes following an event of default will be applied first to repay indebtedness under the 2011 Revolver and LBI Media’s existing swap obligations, and then to repay indebtedness under the 2011 Senior Secured Notes and any future indebtedness sharing priority with the 2011 Senior Secured Notes with respect to such repayments.

The 2011 Senior Secured Notes bear interest at a rate of 9 1/4% per annum. Interest payments are made on a semi-annual basis each April 15 and October 15, and payments will commence on October 15, 2011. The 2011 Senior Secured Notes will mature in April 2019. LBI Media may redeem the 2011 Senior Secured Notes at any time on or after April 15, 2015 at redemption prices on redemption dates specified in the indenture governing the notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest. At any time prior to April 15, 2015, LBI Media may redeem some or all of its 2011 Senior Secured Notes at a redemption price equal to a 100% of the principal amount of the 2011 Senior Secured Notes plus a “make-whole” amount specified in the indenture. Also, LBI Media may redeem up to 35% of the aggregate principal amount of the 2011 Senior

Secured Notes with the net proceeds from certain equity offerings completed prior to April 15, 2015 at a redemption price of 109.25% of the principal amount of the 2011 Senior Secured Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any; provided that at least 65% of the aggregate principal amount of all 2011 Senior Secured Notes remain outstanding immediately after such redemption, subject to certain exceptions, and that such redemption occurs within 90 days of the date of closing of any such equity offering.

In addition, upon a change of control, as defined in the indenture governing the 2011 Senior Secured Notes, LBI Media must make an offer to repurchase all of the outstanding 2011 Senior Secured Notes, at a purchase price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of the notes repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest.

The indenture governing the 2011 Senior Secured Notes contains customary covenants that limit the ability of LBI Media to, among other things: (i) incur or guaranty additional indebtedness or issue certain preferred stock; (ii) pay dividends or distributions on, or redeem or repurchase, capital stock; (iii) make investments and other restricted payments; (iv) incur liens; (v) apply the proceeds from certain asset sales; (vi) consummate any merger, consolidation or sale of substantially all assets; (vii) enter into or engage in certain transactions with affiliates; and (viii) engage in certain business or activities. All of these covenants are subject to a number of important limitations and exceptions. As of June 30, 2011, LBI Media was in compliance with all such covenants.

The indenture governing the 2011 Senior Secured Notes and the related security agreement provide for customary events of default, including but not limited to the failure to make payments of interest or premium, if any, on or principal of, the 2011 Senior Secured Notes, the failure to comply with certain covenants for a period of time after notice has been provided, the acceleration of other indebtedness resulting from the failure to pay principal on such other indebtedness prior to its maturity, and certain events of insolvency. If any event of default occurs, the principal, premium, if any, interest and any other monetary obligations on all the outstanding 2011 Senior Secured Notes may become due and payable immediately.

LBI Media’s Senior Subordinated Notes due 2017

In July 2007, LBI Media issued approximately $228.8 million aggregate principal amount of 8  1/2% senior subordinated notes due 2017 (the “2007 Senior Subordinated Notes”). The 2007 Senior Subordinated Notes were sold at 98.350% of the principal amount, resulting in gross proceeds of approximately $225.0 million. All of LBI Media’s subsidiaries provide full and unconditional joint and several guarantees of the 2007 Senior Subordinated Notes.

The 2007 Senior Subordinated Notes bear interest at a rate of 8.5% per annum. Interest payments are made on a semi-annual basis each February 1 and August 1. The 2007 Senior Subordinated Notes will mature in August 2017.

LBI Media may redeem the 2007 Senior Subordinated Notes at any time on or after August 1, 2012 at redemption prices specified in the indenture governing its 2007 Senior Subordinated Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest. At any time prior to August 1, 2012, LBI Media may redeem some or all of its 2007 Senior Subordinated Notes at a redemption price equal to a “make whole” amount as set forth in the indenture governing the 2007 Senior Subordinated Notes. Also, LBI Media may redeem up to 35% of the aggregate principal amount of the 2007 Senior Subordinated Notes with the net proceeds of certain equity offerings completed on or prior to August 1, 2010, at a redemption price of 108.5% of the principal amount of the notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest thereon, if any, to the applicable redemption date.

The indenture governing the 2007 Senior Subordinated Notes contains restrictive covenants that limit, among other things, LBI Media’s and its subsidiaries’ ability to incur additional indebtedness, issue certain kinds of equity, and make particular kinds of investments. The indenture governing the 2007 Senior Subordinated Notes prohibits the incurrence of indebtedness, the proceeds of which would be used to repay, redeem, repurchase or refinance any of LBI Media Holdings’ senior discount notes earlier than one year prior to the stated maturity of the senior discount notes unless such indebtedness is (i) unsecured, (ii) pari passu or junior in right of payment to the 8 1/2% senior subordinated notes of LBI Media, and (iii) otherwise permitted to be incurred under the indenture governing the 2007 Senior Subordinated Notes. As of June 30, 2011, LBI Media was in compliance with all such covenants.

The indenture governing the 2007 Senior Subordinated Notes provides for customary events of default, which include (subject in certain instances to cure periods and dollar thresholds): nonpayment of principal, interest and premium, if any, on the 2007 Senior Subordinated Notes, breach of covenants specified in the indenture, payment defaults or acceleration of other indebtedness, a failure to pay certain judgments and certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency and reorganization. The 2007 Senior Subordinated Notes will become due and payable immediately, without further action or notice, upon an event of default arising from certain events of bankruptcy or insolvency with respect to LBI Media and certain of its subsidiaries. If any other event of default occurs and is continuing, the trustee or the holders of at least 25% in principal amount of the then outstanding 2007 Senior Subordinated Notes may declare all the 2007 Senior Subordinated Notes to be due and payable immediately.

Senior Discount Notes due 2013

In October 2003, LBI Media Holdings issued $68.4 million aggregate principal amount at maturity of senior discount notes that mature in 2013 (the “Senior Discount Notes”). The Senior Discount Notes were sold at 58.456% of principal amount at maturity, resulting in gross proceeds of approximately $40.0 million and net proceeds of approximately $38.8 million after certain transaction costs. Under the terms of the Senior Discount Notes, cash interest did not accrue and was not payable on the notes prior to October 15, 2008 and instead the value of the Senior Discount Notes had been increased each period until it equaled $68.4 million on October 15, 2008; such accretion was recorded as additional interest expense by LBI Media Holdings. After October 15, 2008, cash interest began to accrue at a rate of 11% per year and is payable semi-annually on each April 15 and October 15. The Senior Discount Notes mature on October 15, 2013.

In 2008, LBI Media Holdings purchased approximately $22.0 million aggregate principal amount of its Senior Discount Notes in various open market transactions at a weighted average purchase price of 43.321% of the principal amount. The total consideration paid (including accrued interest) was approximately $9.9 million. In 2009, LBI Media Holdings purchased an additional $1.0 million aggregate principal of its Senior Discount Notes on the open market at a purchase price of 48.0% of the principal amount. Additionally, in 2010 LBI Media Holdings purchased approximately $3.6 million aggregate principal of its Senior Discount Notes on the open market at a purchase price of 91.5% of the principal amount.

The indenture governing the Senior Discount Notes contains certain restrictive covenants that, among other things, limit LBI Media Holdings’ ability to incur additional indebtedness and pay dividends. As of June 30, 2011, LBI Media Holdings was in compliance with all such covenants. The Senior Discount Notes are structurally subordinated to the 2011 Revolver, the 2011 Senior Secured Notes and the 2007 Senior Subordinated Notes.

Empire’s 2004 Note

In July 2004, Empire issued an installment note for approximately $2.6 million (the “2004 Empire Note”) and used the proceeds to repay its former mortgage note. The 2004 Empire Note bears interest at the rate of 5.52% per annum and is payable in monthly principal and interest payments of approximately $21,000 through maturity in July 2019. The borrowings under the 2004 Empire Note are secured primarily by all of Empire’s real property.

Scheduled Debt Repayments

As of June 30, 2011, the Company’s long-term debt had scheduled repayments for each of the next five fiscal years (and thereafter) as follows:

Interest Rate Swap

The Company uses an interest rate swap to manage interest rate risk associated with its variable rate borrowings. In connection with the issuance of LBI Media’s former senior secured facility, in July 2006, the Company entered into a fixed-for-floating interest rate swap to hedge the underlying interest rate risk on the expected outstanding balance of LBI Media’s former senior secured term loan over time. Pursuant to the terms of this interest rate swap, the Company pays a fixed rate of 5.56% on the notional amount and receives payments based on LIBOR. This swap fixes the interest rate at 7.56% (including the applicable margin) and terminates in November 2011. In November 2009, the notional amount was reduced to $60.0 million (from $80.0 million) and will remain at this level through termination of the swap contract in November 2011.

Table of Contents

The Company accounts for its interest rate swap in accordance with ASC 815, “Derivatives and Hedging” (“ASC 815”). As noted above, the effect of the interest rate swap is to fix the interest rate at 7.56% on the Company’s variable rate borrowings (including the applicable margin). However, changes in the fair value of the interest rate swap for each reporting period have been recorded in interest rate swap income in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations because the interest rate swap does not qualify for hedge accounting.

The fair value of the interest rate swap agreement at each balance sheet date was as follows (in millions):

The Company measures the fair value of its interest rate swap on a recurring basis pursuant to ASC 820. As described in Note 2, ASC 820 establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value. The three tiers are: Level 1, defined as inputs such as quoted prices in active markets; Level 2, defined as inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable; and Level 3, defined as unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions. The Company categorizes this swap contract as Level 2.

As a result of the adoption of ASC 820, the Company modified the assumptions used in measuring the fair value of its interest rate swap. Specifically, the Company now includes the impact of its own credit risk on the interest rate swap measured at fair value under ASC 820. Counterparty credit risk adjustments are applied to the valuation of the interest rate swap, if necessary. Not all counterparties have the same credit risk, so the counterparty’s credit risk is considered in order to estimate the fair value of such an item. Bilateral or “own” credit risk adjustments are applied to the Company’s own credit risk when valuing derivatives measured at fair value. Credit adjustments consider the estimated future cash flows between the Company and its counterparty under the terms of the instruments and affect the credit risk on the valuation of those cash flows.

The fair value of the Company’s interest rate swap was a liability of $1.6 million and $3.1 million at June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, respectively. The fair value of the interest rate swap represents the present value of the expected future cash flows that are estimated to be received from or paid to a marketplace participant of the instrument. It is valued using inputs such as broker dealer quotes and adjusted for non-performance risk, which are based on valuation models that incorporate observable market information and are classified within Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy.

 

6.   Acquisitions

WESV-LP. In December 2010, two of LBI Media Holdings’ indirect, wholly owned subsidiaries, KRCA Television LLC (“KRCA TV”) and KRCA License LLC (“KRCA License”), as buyers, consummated the acquisition of selected assets of television station W40BY, licensed to Palatine, Illinois, from Trinity Broadcasting Network, pursuant to an asset purchase agreement entered into by the parties in February 2010. Subsequent to the purchase, the Company changed the call letters of the acquired station to WESV. The total purchase price of approximately $1.3 million was paid primarily through borrowings under LBI Media’s former senior revolving credit facility. The selected assets primarily included (i) licenses and permits authorized by the FCC for or in connection with the operation of the station and (ii) broadcast and other equipment used to operate the station. The Company allocated the purchase price as follows (in thousands):

WASA-LP. In February 2010, KRCA TV and KRCA License, as buyers, consummated the acquisition of selected assets of low-power television station WASA-LP, licensed to Port Jervis, New York, from Venture Technologies, Group, LLC, pursuant to an asset purchase agreement entered into by the parties in November 2008. The total purchase price of approximately $6.0 million was paid primarily through borrowings under LBI Media’s former senior revolving credit facility. The selected assets primarily included licenses and permits authorized by the FCC for or in connection with the operation of the station. The Company allocated the entire purchase price to broadcast licenses.

KDES-FM. In November 2007, LBI California and LBI Radio, as buyers, entered into an asset purchase agreement with R&R Radio Corporation (“R&R Radio”), as seller, pursuant to which the buyers had agreed to acquire selected assets of radio station KDES-FM, located in Palm Springs, California, from the seller. The selected assets were to include, among other things, (i) licenses and permits authorized by the FCC for or in connection with the operation of the station and (ii) transmitter and other broadcast equipment used to operate the station. The Company intended to change the location of KDES-FM from Palm Springs, California to Redlands, California.

The aggregate purchase price was to be approximately $17.5 million in cash, subject to certain adjustments, of which $0.5 million had been deposited in escrow. The Company would have paid $10.5 million of the aggregate purchase price to the seller and $7.0 million to Spectrum Scan-Idyllwild, LLC (“Spectrum Scan”). As a condition to the Company’s then pending purchase of the assets from the seller, LBI California had entered into an agreement relating to the relocation and purchase of KDES-FM with Spectrum Scan whereby it would have paid $7.0 million to Spectrum Scan in exchange for Spectrum Scan’s agreement to terminate its option to purchase KWXY-FM, located in Cathedral City, California, and Spectrum Scan’s assistance in the relocation of KDES-FM from Palm Springs, California to Redlands, California. Payment to Spectrum Scan was conditioned on the completion of the purchase of the assets from the seller. However, if the Company had received final FCC approval and the purchase of KDES-FM was not completed, the Company would have been required to pay a $0.5 million fee to Spectrum Scan.

In July 2009, LBI California and LBI Radio entered into an assignment and assumption agreement with LC Media LP (“LC Media”) and R&R Radio, pursuant to which LBI California and LBI Radio assigned all of their rights, benefits, obligations and duties in and to a certain asset purchase agreement to purchase the selected assets of radio station KDES-FM to LC Media and LC Media assumed all of the rights, benefits, obligations and duties under such asset purchase agreement, including payment of the purchase price to R&R Radio and the entry into a substitute escrow agreement with R&R Radio. As a result, the $0.5 million escrow deposit that had been previously paid by the Company’s indirect, wholly-owned subsidiaries was returned to the Company in August 2009.

In connection with the assignment and assumption agreement, LBI California and Spectrum Scan entered into an amendment to the agreement relating to the relocation and purchase of KDES-FM, pursuant to which LBI California agreed to pay, subject to certain exceptions, approximately $4.2 million to Spectrum Scan (instead of the $7.0 million previously agreed upon) in exchange for Spectrum Scan’s agreement to terminate its option to purchase KWXY-FM, located in Cathedral City, California, and Spectrum Scan’s assistance in the relocation of KDES-FM from Palm Springs, California to Redlands, California when LC Media and R&R Radio consummated the acquisition of the selected assets.

As consideration for the assignment and assumption agreement and the amendment to the agreement with Spectrum Scan, LC Media agreed to pay, subject to and upon consummation of the purchase of KDES-FM from R&R Radio by LC Media, $5.9 million to the Company. Upon receipt of this payment, the Company agreed to then pay $4.2 million to Spectrum Scan pursuant to the amendment to the agreement relating to the relocation and purchase of KDES-FM, as described above.

In February 2010, the purchase of KDES-FM was consummated and the Company received $5.9 million from LC Media, in accordance with the assignment and assumption agreement. The Company, in turn, paid $4.2 million to Spectrum Scan pursuant to the amendment to the agreement relating to the relocation and purchase of KDES-FM. As such, for the six

months ended June 30, 2010, the Company realized a pre-tax gain on this transaction of approximately $1.6 million, which represents the net effect of the cash payments described above, reduced by the book value of certain transmission equipment that was sold to LC Media in connection with the assumption and assignment agreement. Such gain is included in gain on assignment of asset purchase agreement in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations.

 

7.   Commitments and Contingencies

Ratings Services

In September 2009, the Company entered into a four-year contract with Nielsen Media Research (“Nielsen”), to provide television programming ratings services for the Company’s EstrellaTV network. In February 2011, the Company entered into an agreement with Nielsen to amend certain payment provisions in the contract. As a result, the aggregate payments remaining under the agreement, as of June 30, 2011, were approximately $10.1 million and will be paid through August 2013.

Affiliation Agreements

In June 2009, the Company entered into a network affiliation agreement with a certain television station whereby the Company is obligated to make cash payments to the affiliate station upon the occurrence of certain events, as outlined below:

 

  (1) If the affiliate station does not achieve at least $600,000 in annual net national sales in calendar year 2011, during the time periods specified in the affiliation agreement (during which time the Company is supplying the station with its EstrellaTV network programming), the Company will be required to pay the difference to the affiliate station. This guarantee is reduced by $12,500 for each month in which the television channel is not carried by certain cable providers.

 

  (2) The Company will pay a success fee to the affiliate station in the amount of $125,000 in calendar year 2011 if the station’s average rating is ranked by Nielsen as number three or better in the applicable Hispanic demographic during the November sweeps period, as specified in the affiliation agreement.

Based on the affiliate station’s 2011 operating performance, as of June 30, 2011, the Company had reserved approximately $0.1 million with respect to the guarantee outlined in (1) above. However, no reserve has been recorded related to the potential cash obligation specified in (2) above, based on the affiliate station’s expected ratings position for 2011.

Litigation

In 2008, the Company began negotiations with Broadcast Music, Inc. (“BMI”) related to disputes over royalties owed to BMI. In October 2009, the Company settled all royalty disputes relating to its television stations as well as royalties owed for periods prior to December 31, 2006 for the Company’s radio stations. In June 2011, the Company settled royalty disputes relating to its radio stations for periods subsequent to January 1, 2010. The remaining outstanding dispute relates to the Company’s radio stations for the period commencing January 1, 2007, through December 31, 2009, for which the Company has filed an application for a reasonable license under BMI’s antitrust consent decree (the “post-court period”). As of June 30, 2011, the Company had reserved approximately $0.8 million relating to the BMI dispute. Such reserve is included in accrued liabilities in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet. The Company believes this reserve, all of which relates to the post-court period, is adequate as of June 30, 2011.

In June 2011, the Company settled a legal dispute related to a tortuous interference claim, and recorded a $0.9 million gain related to the settlement. Of this amount, approximately $0.6 million was received in cash and the remaining $0.3 million represents the fair value of radio advertising credits which can be used by the Company over a 24-month period. Such gain is included in gain on legal settlement in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011.

The Company is also subject to other pending litigation arising in the normal course of its business. While it is not possible to predict the results of such litigation, management does not believe the ultimate outcome of these matters will have a materially adverse effect on the Company’s financial position or results of operations.

 

8.   Related Party Transactions

The Company had approximately $3.4 million due from stockholders of the Parent and from affiliated companies at June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010. These amounts include a $1.9 million loan the Company made to one of the stockholders of the Parent in July 2002. The loans due from the stockholders of the Parent bear interest at the applicable federal rate and currently mature through December 2012. Such loans and the related balances of accrued interest have been

The Company also had approximately $690,000 due from one of its executive officers and directors at June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, which is included in employee advances in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. The Company made these loans in various transactions in 1998, 2002 and 2006. Except for an advance of $30,000, which does not bear interest and does not have a maturity date, the remaining loans bear interest at 8.0% and mature through December 2012.

In December 2008, stockholders of the Parent and one of the Company’s executive officers purchased approximately $1.9 million aggregate principal amount of the Senior Discount Notes in open market transactions. In July 2009, stockholders of the Parent purchased approximately $0.8 million aggregate principal amount of the 2007 Senior Subordinated Notes in open market transactions. LBI Media did not pay any interest to these noteholders during the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, and paid approximately $34,000 of interest during the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

One of the Parent’s stockholders is the sole shareholder of L.D.L. Enterprises, Inc. (“LDL”), a mail order business. From time to time, the Company allows LDL to use, free of charge, unsold advertising time on its radio and television stations. The Company had approximately $0.1 million due from LDL as of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, which is included in amounts due from related parties in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets. Such advances are payable upon demand.

 

9.   Equity Incentive Plan

In December 2008, the stockholders of the Parent adopted the Liberman Broadcasting, Inc. Stock Incentive Plan (the “Plan”). Grants of equity under the Plan are made to employees who render services to the Company. Accordingly, the Company reflects compensation expense related to the options in its financial statements. The Plan allows for the award of up to 14.568461 shares of the Parent’s Class A common stock and awards under the Plan may be in the form of incentive stock options, nonqualified stock options, restricted stock awards or stock awards. The Plan is administered by the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors determines the type, number, vesting requirements and other features and conditions of such awards.

As of June 30, 2011, the only option grant under the Plan has been to one of the Company’s executive officers, which was made in December 2008, pursuant to such employee’s employment agreement. The options have a contractual term of ten years from the date of the grant and vest over five years. No new options were granted during the three or six months ended June 30, 2011 or 2010.

Since 2008, the Parent has entered into certain employment agreements whereby it has agreed to grant an aggregate of 11.3634 shares of the Parent’s Class A common stock to certain employees and an executive officer. None of these options have been granted as of June 30, 2011. The options, when granted by the Board of Directors, will have a contractual term of ten years from the date of the grant and vest in equal installments over five years.

Table of Contents

The Company accounts for stock-based compensation according to the provisions of ASC 718 “Compensation — Stock Compensation” which requires the measurement and recognition of compensation expense for all stock-based awards made to employees and directors including employee stock options under the Plan based on estimated fair values. Services required under a certain employment agreement pursuant to which the options were granted are rendered to the Company. Accordingly, the Company reflects compensation expense related to the options in its financial statements.

The fair value of each stock option is estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model that uses assumptions for expected term, dividends, risk-free interest rate and expected volatility. For the awards, the Company recognizes compensation expense using a straight-line amortization method. Expected volatilities are based on the historical volatility of the Company’s publicly traded competitors. The Company uses historical data to estimate option exercise and employee termination within the valuation model. The expected term of the option is estimated using the “simplified” method as provided in SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 107 “Share-Based Payment”. Under this method, the expected life equals the arithmetic average of the vesting term and the original contractual term of the options. The risk-free interest rate for periods within the contractual life of the stock option is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant. When estimating forfeitures, the Company considers voluntary termination behavior.

Valuation Assumptions

The Company calculated the fair value of its December 2008 option award on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The following weighted average assumptions were used for each respective period:

 

     2008  

Expected term

     7.5 years   

Dividends to common stockholders

     None   

Risk-free interest rate

     2.60

Expected volatility

     67

The weighted average grant date fair value using the Black-Scholes option pricing model was approximately $90,000 per share. Unamortized compensation as of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010 was approximately $129,000 and $142,000, respectively, and is being amortized over the vesting period of 7.5 years.

Stock-based compensation expense was approximately $7,000 for each of the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010 and approximately $13,000 for each of the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010.

The following is a summary of the Company’s stock options as of June 30, 2011:

 

     Shares      Weighted
Average
Exercise
Price Per Share
     Aggregate

     2.19       $ 1,368,083       $ —           7.5   

Vested and exercisable at June 30, 2011

     1.31       $ 1,368,083       $ —           7.5   

Vested and expected to vest at June 30, 2011

     2.19       $ 1,368,083       $ —           7.5   

During the six months ended June 30, 2011, options to purchase an additional 0.437054 shares of the Parent’s Class A common stock had vested. However, none of these stock options had been exercised and no stock options expired during the three or six months ended June 30, 2011. Additionally, there was no intrinsic value for the stock options exercisable at June 30, 2011.

 

10.   Segment Data

ASC 280 “Segment Reporting” requires companies to provide certain information about their operating segments. The Company has two reportable segments — radio operations and television operations. Management uses operating income or loss before stock-based compensation expense, depreciation and amortization, loss (gain) on sale and disposal of property and equipment and impairment of broadcast licenses and long-lived assets as its measure of profitability for purposes of assessing performance and allocating resources.

11.   Income Taxes

In assessing the realizability of deferred tax assets, the Company considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the periods in which those temporary differences become deductible. The Company considers the scheduled reversal of deferred tax liabilities, projected future taxable income, and tax planning strategies in making this assessment. If the realization of deferred tax assets in the future is considered more likely than not, an adjustment to the deferred tax assets would increase net income in the period such determination is made.

Based upon the level of historical taxable income and projections for future taxable income over the periods which the deferred tax assets are deductible, the Company currently believes it is more likely than not that it will not realize the benefits of the majority of these deductible differences. As a result, the Company has established and maintained a valuation allowance for that portion of the deferred tax assets it believes will not be realized.

There was no activity in the Company’s unrecognized tax benefits (“UTB”) during the three or six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010. The Company files income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction and various state jurisdictions. The Company is no longer subject to federal or state income tax examinations for years prior to 2007 and 2006, respectively. The Company believes that it has appropriate support for the income tax positions taken and presently expected to be taken on its tax returns.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the financial statements included elsewhere in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and the audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2010, included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K (File No. 333-110122).

Overview

We own and operate radio and television stations in Los Angeles (including Riverside and San Bernardino counties), California, Houston, Texas and Dallas, Texas and television stations in San Diego, California, Salt Lake City, Utah, Phoenix, Arizona, New York, New York, Denver, Colorado and Chicago, Illinois. Our radio stations consist of five FM and two AM stations serving Los Angeles, California and its surrounding areas, five FM and three AM stations serving Houston, Texas and its surrounding areas, and five FM stations and one AM station serving Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas and its surrounding areas. Our nine television stations consist of five full-power stations serving Los Angeles, California, Houston, Texas, Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, Salt Lake City, Utah and Denver, Colorado. We also own four low-power television stations serving the San Diego, California, Phoenix, Arizona, New York, New York and Chicago, Illinois markets.

In addition, we operate two television production facilities in Burbank, California that we use to produce our core programming for all of our television stations, and we have television production facilities in Houston and Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, that allow us to produce programming in those markets as well. We have entered into time brokerage agreements with third parties for three of our radio stations and one of our low-power television stations.

We are also affiliated with television stations in various states, and along with our owned and operated stations, serve 37 designated market areas, or DMA’s, including nine each in California and Texas, four in Florida, three in Arizona, two in Nevada, and one each in Colorado, Illinois, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. We distribute our EstrellaTV programming to these stations and we share in the available advertising time to be sold on the affiliate stations while our EstrellaTV programming is broadcasting. Our EstrellaTV network broadcasts in the above 37 DMAs which in the aggregate comprise over 77% of U.S. Hispanic television households. In addition to the advertising time we retain, we also sell national air time for the affiliate stations through our wholly owned national sales organization, Spanish Media Rep Team, and earn a commission based on those sales. In addition, we syndicate and air on our owned and operated radio stations our popular radio morning show, El Show de Don Cheto, in 19 markets.

We operate in two reportable segments, radio and television. We generate revenue from sales of local, regional and national (including network) advertising time on our owned and affiliated radio and television stations and the sale of time to brokered or infomercial customers on our radio and television stations. Beginning in September 2009, we also began generating advertising sales on our affiliated stations that broadcast our “EstrellaTV” network programming.

Advertising rates are, in large part, based on each station’s ability to attract audiences in demographic groups targeted by advertisers. Our stations compete for audiences and advertising revenue directly with other Spanish-language radio and television stations, and we generally do not obtain long-term commitments from our advertisers. As a result, our management team focuses on creating a diverse advertiser base, providing cost-effective advertising solutions for clients, executing targeted marketing campaigns to develop a local audience and implementing strict cost controls. We recognize revenues when the commercials are broadcast or the brokered time is made available to the customer. We incur commissions from agencies on local, regional and national (including network) advertising, and our net revenue reflects deductions from gross revenue for commissions to these agencies.

Our primary expenses are employee compensation, including commissions paid to our local and national sales staffs, promotion and selling expenses, programming and engineering expenses, general and administrative expenses, and interest expense. Our programming expenses for television consist of amortization of capitalized costs related to the production of original programming content, production of local and national newscasts and other daily programs and, to a lesser extent, the amortization of television programming content acquired from other sources. Because we are highly leveraged, we will need to dedicate a substantial portion of our cash flow from operations to pay interest on our debt.

Recent Acquisitions

WESV-LP. In December 2010, two of our indirect, wholly owned subsidiaries, KRCA Television LLC and KRCA License LLC, as buyers, consummated the acquisition of selected assets of low-power television station W40BY, licensed to Palatine, Illinois, from Trinity Broadcasting Network, pursuant to an asset purchase agreement entered into by the parties in February 2010. Subsequent to the purchase, we changed the call letters of the station to WESV. The total purchase price of approximately $1.3 million was paid primarily through borrowings under LBI Media’s former senior revolving credit facility (see “ — Liquidity and Capital Resources” below for a discussion regarding LBI Media’s former senior revolving credit

facility). The selected assets primarily included (i) licenses and permits authorized by the FCC for or in connection with the operation of the station and (ii) broadcast and other equipment used to operate the station. The purchase of these assets represents the first television station we have owned in the Chicago market.

KETD-TV. In June 2010, KRCA Television LLC and KRCA License LLC consummated the acquisition of selected assets of television station KWHD-TV, licensed to Castle Rock, Colorado, from LeSEA Broadcasting Corporation, pursuant to an asset purchase agreement entered into by the parties in January 2010. Subsequent to the purchase, we changed the call letters of the station to KETD. The total aggregate purchase price of approximately $6.5 million was paid primarily through borrowings under LBI Media’s former senior revolving credit facility. The selected assets primarily included (i) licenses and permits authorized by the FCC for or in connection with the operation of the station, (ii) antenna and transmitter facilities and (iii) property, broadcast and other studio equipment used to operate the station. The purchase of these assets represents the first television station we have owned in the Denver market.

WASA-LP. In February 2010, KRCA Television LLC and KRCA License LLC consummated the acquisition of selected assets of low-power television station WASA-LP, Channel 25, licensed to Port Jervis, New York, from Venture Technologies, Group, LLC, pursuant to an asset purchase agreement entered into by the parties in November 2008. The total purchase price of approximately $6.0 million was paid primarily through borrowings under LBI Media’s former senior revolving credit facility. The selected assets primarily included licenses and permits authorized by the FCC for or in connection with the operation of the station. The purchase of these assets represents the first television station we have owned in the New York market.

We generally experience lower operating margins for several quarters following the acquisition of radio and television stations. This is primarily due to the time it takes to fully implement our format changes, build our advertiser base and gain viewer or listener support.

From time to time, we engage in discussions with third parties concerning the possible acquisition and/or divestiture of radio or television stations and their related assets. Any such discussions may or may not lead to our acquisition and/or divestiture of broadcasting assets.

Investor Rights Agreement

In March 2007, our parent, Liberman Broadcasting, sold shares of its Class A common stock to affiliates of Oaktree Capital Management, LLC, or Oaktree, and Tinicum Capital Partners II, L.P., or Tinicum. In connection with the sale of Liberman Broadcasting’s Class A common stock, Liberman Broadcasting and its stockholders entered into an investor rights agreement that defines certain rights and obligations of Liberman Broadcasting and the stockholders of Liberman Broadcasting.

Three Months Ended June 30, 2011 Compared to the Three Months Ended June 30, 2010

Net Revenues. Net revenues increased by $0.8 million, or 2.7%, to $31.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, from $30.7 million for the same period in 2010. The change was primarily attributable to increased advertising revenue from our television segment, partially offset by a decline in our radio segment.

Net revenues for our radio segment declined by $1.2 million, or 7.3%, to $15.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, from $16.4 million for the same period in 2010. This change was primarily attributable to declines in advertising revenue in our Dallas and Houston markets.

Net revenues for our television segment increased by $2.0 million, or 14.3%, to $16.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, from $14.3 million for the same period in 2010. This increase was primarily attributable to increased revenue from our EstrellaTV national television network.

We currently expect net revenue in 2011 as compared to 2010 to increase in our television segment and remain level or decline slightly in our radio segment. We expect our television segment to benefit from the continued expansion of our EstrellaTV national television network.

Total operating expenses. Total operating expenses decreased by $0.7 million, or 2.8%, to $24.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to $25.2 million for the same period in 2010. This decrease was primarily related to a $1.8 million decline in broadcast license impairment charges, a $0.9 million gain related to the settlement of a certain legal dispute and a $0.2 million reduction in program and technical expenses. These changes were partially offset by:

 

  (1) a $1.4 million increase in selling, general and administrative expenses, primarily attributable to (a) additional costs related to the expansion of our EstrellaTV network, including additional sales staff and costs related to upfront presentations, (b) incremental costs related to our Denver station, KETD-TV, which began fully operating in the fourth quarter 2010, and (c) an increase in legal fees and employee related costs;

 

  (2) a $0.6 million loss on disposal of property and equipment, primarily related to the disposal of obsolete television stage props and other equipment; and

 

  (3) a $0.1 million increase in depreciation and amortization expense.

 

23


Table of Contents

Total operating expenses for our radio segment decreased by $0.9 million, or 9.2% for the three months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to the same period in 2010 primarily due to the $0.9 million gain related to the settlement of a certain legal dispute.

Total operating expenses for our television segment increased by $0.2 million, or 1.2%, to $15.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, from $15.6 million for the same period in 2010. This increase was primarily due to:

(1) a $1.3 million increase in selling, general and administrative expenses, primarily reflecting additional costs related to our EstrellaTV network, incremental costs related to television station KETD-TV and an increase in legal fees and employee related costs; and

(2) a $0.6 million loss on disposal of property and equipment, primarily related to the disposal of obsolete television stage props and other equipment.

These increases in operating expenses for our television segment were partially offset by a $1.8 million decline in broadcast license and long-lived asset impairment charges.

We currently anticipate that our total operating expenses, before consideration of any impairment charges, will increase in 2011 as compared to 2010. We anticipate higher programming costs for our television segment and increased personnel and promotional expenses relating to the expansion of our EstrellaTV network. This expectation could be negatively impacted by the number and size of additional radio and television assets that we acquire, if any, during 2011.

Interest expense and interest and other income. Interest expense and interest and other income increased by $4.2 million to $12.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to $8.3 million for the same period of 2010. In March 2011, we refinanced our former senior credit facility with the issuance of $220.0 million of 9  1/4% senior secured notes and our new $50.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility. As a result of this transaction, our weighted average interest rates and debt balances increased during the three months ended June 30, 2011 as compared to the same period in 2010.

As a result of the aforementioned refinancing, we expect our interest expense to increase in 2011 as compared to 2010. This expectation could be even more negatively impacted if we borrow under LBI Media’s 2011 senior secured revolving credit facility to fund operations or acquire additional radio or television station assets.

Interest rate swap income. Interest rate swap income increased to $0.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to $0.6 million for the same period of 2010, a change of $0.2 million. Interest rate swap income or expense reflects changes in the fair market value of our interest rate swap during the respective period.

Provision for income taxes. We recognized an income tax provision of $0.5 million for the each of three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010.

Net loss. We recognized a net loss of $5.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to a net loss of $2.7 million for the same period of 2010, an increase in net loss of $2.5 million. This change was primarily attributable to (1) the $4.2 million increase in interest expense and interest and other income, (2) a $1.2 million decrease in net revenues in our radio segment and (3) higher selling, general and administrative expenses and losses on the disposal of property and equipment. These increases were partially offset by (1) a $2.0 million increase in net revenues in our television segment, (2) a $1.8 million reduction in broadcast license and long-lived asset impairment charges and (3) the $0.9 million legal settlement gain.

Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA increased by $0.5 million, or 5.2%, to $10.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to $9.8 million for the same period in 2010. The increase was primarily the result of a $2.0 million increase in net revenues in our television segment and the $0.9 million gain related to the settlement of a certain legal dispute. However, these increases were partially offset by higher selling, general and administrative costs, primarily related to the expansion of our EstrellaTV network and a $1.2 million decline in net revenues in our radio segment.

Adjusted EBITDA for our radio segment decreased by $0.2 million, or 2.8%, to $8.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to $8.2 million for the same period in 2010. The decrease was primarily the result of the $1.2 million decline in net revenues offset by the $0.9 million legal settlement and a decrease in program and technical expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA for our television segment increased by $0.7 million, or 46.1%, to $2.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, from $1.6 million for the same period in 2010. This increase was primarily the result of the $2.0 million increase in net revenues, partially offset by higher selling, general and administrative expenses.

Six Months Ended June 30, 2011 Compared to the Six Months Ended June 30, 2010

Net Revenues. Net revenues increased by $2.7 million, or 4.9%, to $57.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, from $54.3 million for the same period in 2010. The change was primarily attributable to increased advertising revenue from our television segment, partially offset by a decline in our radio segment.

Net revenues for our radio segment declined by $1.8 million, or 6.3%, to $26.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, from $28.3 million for the same period in 2010. This change was primarily attributable to declines in advertising revenue in our Dallas and Houston markets, partially offset by increases in advertising revenues in our Los Angeles market.

Net revenues for our television segment increased by $4.5 million, or 17.1%, to $30.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, from $26.0 million for the same period in 2010. This increase was primarily attributable to increased revenue from our EstrellaTV national television network.

Total operating expenses. Total operating expenses increased by $4.0 million, or 9.0%, to $48.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to $44.2 million for the same period in 2010. This increase was primarily attributable to:

 

  (1) a $1.8 million increase in program and technical expenses, which resulted from (a) an increase in amortization of capitalized costs related to the production of original programming content and (b) incremental costs related to our EstrellaTV network, primarily ratings service and related costs;

 

  (2) a $2.3 million increase in selling, general and administrative expenses primarily related to (a) additional costs related to the expansion of our EstrellaTV network, including additional sales staff and costs related to upfront presentations, (b) incremental costs related to our Denver station, KETD-TV, which began fully operating in the fourth quarter 2010, (c) a $0.7 million charge related to a legal settlement and (d) an increase in legal fees and employee related costs;

 

  (3) the absence in 2011 of the $1.6 million gain on assignment of the asset purchase agreement to acquire radio station KDES-FM;

 

  (4) a $0.6 million increase in loss (gain) on disposal of property and equipment, primarily related to the disposal of obsolete television stage props and other equipment; and

 

  (5) a $0.4 million increase in promotional, depreciation and amortization expenses.

These increases in total operating expenses were partially offset by (1) a $1.8 million decrease in broadcast license and long-lived asset impairment charges and (2) a $0.9 million gain related to a certain legal settlement.

Total operating expenses for our radio segment increased by $1.5 million, or 8.4%, to $19.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, from $17.5 million for the same period in 2010. This increase was primarily attributable to:

 

  (1) a $1.6 million decrease in gain on assignment of the asset purchase agreement to acquire radio station KDES-FM;

 

  (2) a $0.5 million increase in selling, general and administrative expenses, which primarily reflects a $0.7 million charge related to a legal settlement, partially offset by lower trade expenses;

 

  (3) a $0.2 million increase in promotional expenses; and

 

  (4) a $0.1 million increase in loss (gain) on sale and disposal of property and equipment and depreciation and amortization expense.

These increases were offset by the $0.9 million gain related to a certain legal settlement.

Total operating expenses for our television segment increased by $2.5 million, or 9.4%, to $29.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, from $26.7 million for the same period in 2010. This increase was primarily due to:

 

  (1) a $1.9 million increase in selling, general and administrative expenses, primarily attributable to (a) additional costs related to the expansion of our EstrellaTV network, including additional sales staff and costs related to upfront presentations, (b) incremental costs related to our Denver station, KETD-TV, which began fully operating in the fourth quarter 2010, and (c) an increase in legal fees and employee related costs;

 

  (2) a $1.7 million increase in programming and technical expenses, resulting from an increase in amortization of capitalized costs related to the production of original programming content and incremental costs related to our EstrellaTV network, primarily ratings service and related costs;

  (3) a $0.6 million increase in loss (gain) on disposal of property and equipment, primarily related to the disposal of obsolete television stage props and other equipment; and

 

  (4) a $0.2 million increase in depreciation and amortization expense.

These increases were partially offset by (1) a $1.8 million decrease in broadcast license and long-lived asset impairment charges and (2) a $0.1 million decrease in promotional expenses.

Interest expense and interest and other income. Interest expense and interest and other income increased by $5.8 million to $22.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to $16.5 million for the same period of 2010, as a result of the March 2011 refinancing of our former senior credit facility with $220.0 million of 9  1/4% senior secured notes and our new $50.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility. This transaction resulted in (1) the write-off of $1.0 million of deferred financing costs associated with our former senior credit facility and (2) higher weighted average interest rates and outstanding balances on our long-term debt.

Interest rate swap income. Interest rate swap income increased to $1.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to $0.9 million for the same period of 2010, a change of $0.6 million. Interest rate swap income or expense reflects changes in the fair market value of our interest rate swap during the respective period.

Provision for income taxes. During the six months ended June 30, 2011, we recognized an income tax provision of $1.0 million, as compared to $1.2 million for the same period in 2010.

Net loss. We recognized a net loss of $13.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to a net loss of $6.7 million for the same period of 2010, an increase in net loss of $6.3 million. This change was primarily attributable to (1) the absence in 2011 of the $1.6 million gain on assignment of the asset purchase agreement to acquire radio station KDES-FM, (2) the $1.8 million decline in net revenues in our radio segment, (3) the $1.0 million write off of deferred financing costs relating to LBI Media’s prior senior secured credit facility, (4) higher interest expense and (5) an increase in program and technical expenses and selling, general and administrative expenses. These increases were partially offset by (1) the $4.5 million increase in net revenues in our television segment, (2) the $1.8 million reduction in broadcast license impairment charges and (3) the $0.9 million legal settlement gain.

Adjusted EBITDA. Adjusted EBITDA decreased by $2.2 million, or 13.4%, to $14.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to $16.8 million for the same period in 2010. The decrease was primarily the result of (1) the $4.0 million increase in program and technical and selling, general and administrative expenses, (2) decrease in net revenues in our radio segment, (3) the absence in 2011 of the $1.6 million gain realized on the assignment of the asset purchase agreement to acquire radio station KDES-FM and (4) a $0.7 million charge related to the settlement of a legal dispute and related professional fees. These decreases were partially offset by (1) higher net revenues in our television segment, (2) a decrease in broadcast license and long-lived asset impairment charges and (3) a $0.9 million gain related to the settlement of a certain legal dispute.

Adjusted EBITDA for our radio segment decreased by $3.1 million, or 23.5%, to $10.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to $13.4 million for the same period in 2010. The decrease was primarily the result of (1) the absence in 2011 of the $1.6 million gain realized on the assignment of the asset purchase agreement to acquire radio station KDES-FM, (2) a $0.7 million charge related to the settlement of a legal dispute and related professional fees, and (3) a $1.8 million decline in net revenues, offset by a $0.9 million gain related to the settlement of a certain legal dispute.

Adjusted EBITDA for our television segment increased by $0.9 million, or 26.8%, to $4.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, from $3.4 million for the same period in 2010. This increase was primarily the result of the $4.5 million increase in net revenues and the $1.8 million reduction in broadcast license impairment charges, partially offset by higher program and technical and selling, general and administrative expenses.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Our primary sources of liquidity are cash provided by operations and available borrowings under the $50.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility of our wholly owned subsidiary, LBI Media, Inc., or LBI Media.

LBI Media Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility. In March 2011, LBI Media refinanced its prior $150.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility and $110.0 million senior secured term loan facility with $220.0 million in senior secured notes (discussed below) and a $50.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility, or 2011 Revolver, pursuant to a new credit agreement. The 2011 Revolver includes a $7.5 million swing line sub-facility and allows for letters of credit up to the lesser of $5.0 million or the available remaining revolving commitment amount. There are no scheduled reductions of commitments under the 2011 Revolver. The 2011 Revolver matures in March 2016.

Table of Contents

Borrowings under the 2011 Revolver bear interest based on either, at the option of LBI Media, the base rate for base rate loans or the LIBOR rate for LIBOR loans, in each case plus the applicable margin. The base rate will be the higher of (i) Credit Suisse’s prime rate and (ii) the Federal Funds Effective Rate (as published by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York) plus 0.50%. The applicable margin for loans under the 2011 Revolver is 3.75% per annum for base rate loans and 4.75% per annum for LIBOR loans. Interest on base rate loans is payable quarterly in arrears and interest on LIBOR loans is payable either monthly, bimonthly or quarterly depending on the interest period elected by LBI Media. All amounts that are not paid when due under the 2011 Revolver will accrue interest at the rate otherwise applicable plus 2.00% until such amounts are paid in full. In addition, LBI Media will pay quarterly in arrears an unused commitment fee of 0.75% per annum.

The 2011 Revolver is guaranteed on a senior secured basis by all of LBI Media’s existing and future wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries. Borrowings under the 2011 Revolver are secured by substantially all of the tangible and intangible assets of LBI Media and its existing and future wholly owned domestic subsidiaries (other than the assets of LBI Media’s subsidiary Empire Burbank Studios, LLC, or Empire), including a first priority pledge of all capital stock of each of LBI Media’s subsidiaries. The 2011 Revolver also contains customary covenants that, among other things, restrict the ability of LBI Media and its restricted subsidiaries to: (i) incur or guaranty additional debt; (ii) engage in mergers, acquisitions and asset sales; (iii) make loans and investments; (iv) declare and pay dividends or redeem or repurchase capital stock; (v) transact with affiliates; and (vi) engage in different lines of business. All of these covenants are subject to a number of important limitations and exceptions under the agreements governing the 2011 Revolver. Under the 2011 Revolver, LBI Media must also maintain its material FCC licenses and maintain a maximum revolving facility leverage ratio (as defined in the new credit agreement). As of June 30, 2011, LBI Media was in compliance with all such covenants.

In connection with LBI Media’s entry into the credit agreement relating to the 2011 Revolver and the indenture relating to its 2011 Senior Secured Notes (defined below), LBI Media and the guarantors of the 2011 Revolver and its 2011 Senior Secured Notes also entered into a collateral trust and intercreditor agreement, or the Intercreditor Agreement. The Increditor Agreement defines the relative rights of the lenders under the 2011 Revolver and the holders of the 2011 Senior Secured Notes with respect to the collateral securing LBI Media’s and the guarantors’ respective obligations under the 2011 Revolver and the 2011 Senior Secured Notes. Pursuant to the Intercreditor Agreement, amounts received upon the sale of collateral securing the 2011 Revolver and the 2011 Senior Secured Notes following an event of default will be applied first to repay indebtedness under the 2011 Revolver and LBI Media’s existing swap obligations, and then to repay indebtedness under the 2011 Senior Secured Notes and any future indebtedness sharing priority with the 2011 Senior Secured Notes with respect to such repayments.

The indenture governing LBI Media’s 8 1/2% senior subordinated notes prohibits borrowing under the 2011 Revolver, the proceeds of which would be used to repay, redeem, repurchase or refinance any of our senior discount notes earlier than one year prior to their stated maturity.

As of June 30, 2011, no amounts were outstanding under the 2011 Revolver.

LBI Media’s 9 1/4% Senior Secured Notes.

In March 2011, LBI Media issued approximately $220.0 million aggregate principal amount of 9   1/4% senior secured notes due 2019, or 2011 Senior Secured Notes. The 2011 Senior Secured Notes were sold at 98.594% of the principal amount, resulting in gross proceeds of approximately $216.9 million. LBI Media used the net proceeds from the issuance of the 2011 Senior Secured Notes to repay all outstanding borrowings under its prior $150.0 million senior secured revolving credit facility and $110.0 million senior secured term loan.

The 2011 Senior Secured Notes are guaranteed on a senior secured basis by all of LBI Media’s existing and future wholly-owned domestic subsidiaries. Subject to certain exceptions and permitted liens, the 2011 Senior Secured Notes and the guarantees are secured on a first priority basis, along with indebtedness under the 2011 Revolver, by liens on substantially all of LBI Media’s and the guarantors’ assets (other than the assets of Empire), including a first priority pledge of all capital stock of each of LBI Media’s domestic subsidiaries. As discussed above, pursuant to the Intercreditor Agreement, amounts received upon sale of the collateral securing the 2011 Senior Secured Notes following an event of default will be applied first to repay indebtedness under the 2011 Revolver and LBI Media’s existing swap obligations, and then to repay indebtedness under the 2011 Senior Secured Notes and any future indebtedness sharing priority with the 2011 Senior Secured Notes with respect to such repayments.

The 2011 Senior Secured Notes bear interest at a rate of 9.25% per annum. Interest payments are made on a semi-annual basis each April 15 and October 15, and payments will commence on October 15, 2011. The 2011 Senior Secured Notes will mature in April 2019. LBI Media may redeem the 2011 Senior Secured Notes at any time on or after April 15, 2015 at redemption prices on redemption dates specified in the indenture governing the notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest. At any time prior to April 15, 2015, LBI Media may redeem some or all of its 2011 Senior Secured Notes at a

 

27


Table of Contents

redemption price equal to a 100% of the principal amount of the 2011 Senior Secured Notes plus a “make-whole” amount specified in the indenture. Also, LBI Media may redeem up to 35% of the aggregate principal amount of the 2011 Senior Secured Notes with the net proceeds from certain equity offerings completed prior to April 15, 2015 at a redemption price of 109.25% of the principal amount of the 2011 Senior Secured Notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any; provided that at least 65% of the aggregate principal amount of all 2011 Senior Secured Notes remain outstanding immediately after such redemption, subject to certain exceptions, and that such redemption occurs within 90 days of the date of closing of any such equity offering.

In addition, upon a change of control, as defined in the indenture governing the 2011 Senior Secured Notes, LBI Media must make an offer to repurchase all 2011 Senior Secured Notes outstanding, at a purchase price equal to 101% of the aggregate principal amount of the notes repurchased, plus accrued and unpaid interest.

The indenture governing the 2011 Senior Secured Notes contains customary covenants that limit the ability of LBI Media to, among other things: (i) incur or guaranty additional indebtedness or issue certain preferred stock; (ii) pay dividends or distributions on, or redeem or repurchase, capital stock; (iii) make investments and other restricted payments; (iv) incur liens; (v) apply the proceeds from certain asset sales; (vi) consummate any merger, consolidation or sale of substantially all assets; (vii) enter into or engage in certain transactions with affiliates; and (viii) engage in certain business or activities. All of these covenants are subject to a number of important limitations and exceptions. As of June 30, 2011, LBI Media was in compliance with all such covenants.

The indenture governing the 2011 Senior Secured Notes and the related security agreement provide for customary events of default, including but not limited to, the failure to make payments of interest or premium, if any, on or principal of, the 2011 Senior Secured Notes, the failure to comply with certain covenants for a period of time after notice has been provided, the acceleration of other indebtedness resulting from the failure to pay principal on such other indebtedness prior to its maturity, and certain events of insolvency. If any event of default occurs, the principal, premium, if any, interest and any other monetary obligations on all the outstanding 2011 Senior Secured Notes may become due and payable immediately.

LBI Media’s 8  1/2% Senior Subordinated Notes. In July 2007, LBI Media issued approximately $228.8 million aggregate principal amount of 8  1/2% Senior Subordinated Notes that mature in 2017, resulting in gross proceeds of approximately $225.0 million and net proceeds of approximately $221.6 million after deducting certain transaction costs. Under the terms of LBI Media’s 8  1/2% senior subordinated notes, it pays semi-annual interest payments of approximately $9.7 million each February 1 and August 1, which commenced on February 1, 2008. LBI Media may redeem the 8  1/2% senior subordinated notes at any time on or after August 1, 2012 at redemption prices specified in the indenture governing its 8  1/2% senior subordinated notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest. At any time prior to August 1, 2012, LBI Media may redeem some or all of its 8  1/2% senior subordinated notes at a redemption price equal to a “make whole” amount as set forth in the indenture governing such senior subordinated notes. Also, LBI Media may redeem up to 35% of the aggregate principal amount of the notes with the net proceeds of certain equity offerings completed on or prior to August 1, 2010 at a redemption price of 108.5% of the principal amount of the notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any, thereon to the applicable redemption date.

The indenture governing these notes contains restrictive covenants that limit, among other things, LBI Media’s and its subsidiaries’ ability to incur additional indebtedness, issue certain kinds of equity, and make particular kinds of investments. The indenture governing LBI Media’s 8  1/2% senior subordinated notes also prohibits the incurrence of indebtedness, the proceeds of which would be used to repay, redeem, repurchase or refinance any of our senior discount notes earlier than one year prior to the stated maturity of the senior discount notes unless such indebtedness is (i) unsecured, (ii) pari passu or junior in right of payment to the 8  1/2% senior subordinated notes of LBI Media, and (iii) otherwise permitted to be incurred under the indenture governing LBI Media’s 8  1/2% senior subordinated notes. As of June 30, 2011, LBI Media was in compliance with all such covenants.

The indenture governing these notes also provides for customary events of default, which include (subject in certain instances to cure periods and dollar thresholds): nonpayment of principal, interest and premium, if any, on the notes, breach of covenants specified in the indenture, payment defaults or acceleration of other indebtedness, a failure to pay certain judgments and certain events of bankruptcy, insolvency and reorganization. The notes will become due and payable immediately without further action or notice upon an event of default arising from certain events of bankruptcy or insolvency with respect to us and certain of its subsidiaries. If any other event of default occurs and is continuing, the trustee or the holders of at least 25% in principal amount of the then outstanding notes may declare all the notes to be due and payable immediately.

Senior Discount Notes. In October 2003, we issued $68.4 million aggregate principal amount at maturity of senior discount notes that mature in 2013. Under the terms of the senior discount notes, cash interest did not accrue and was not payable on the senior discount notes prior to October 15, 2008, and instead the accreted value of the senior discount notes

Table of Contents

increased until such date. Since October 15, 2008, cash interest began to accrue on the senior discount notes at a rate of 11% per year payable semi-annually on each April 15 and October 15. We may redeem the senior discount notes at any time at redemption prices specified in the indenture governing our senior discount notes, plus accrued and unpaid interest.

In 2010, 2009 and 2008, we purchased approximately $3.6 million, $1.0 million and $22.0 million, respectively, aggregate principal amount of our senior discount notes in various open market transactions. As such, the total principal amount due to noteholders, other than LBI Media Holdings was $41.8 million as of June 30, 2011.

The indenture governing the senior discount notes contains certain restrictive covenants that, among other things, limit our ability to incur additional indebtedness and pay dividends to Liberman Broadcasting. As of June 30, 2011, we were in compliance with all such covenants. Our senior discount notes are structurally subordinated to the 2011 Revolver, 2011 Senior Secured Notes and 8 1/2% senior subordinated notes.

Empire Burbank Studios’ Mortgage Note. In July 2004, one of our indirect, wholly owned subsidiaries, Empire Burbank Studios, issued an installment note for approximately $2.6 million. The loan is secured by Empire Burbank Studios’ real property and bears interest at 5.52% per annum. The loan is payable in monthly principal and interest payments of approximately $21,000 through maturity in July 2019.

The following table summarizes our various levels of indebtedness at June 30, 2011.

(1) In 2010, 2009 and 2008, we purchased approximately $3.6 million, $1.0 million and $22.0 million, respectively, aggregate principal amount of our senior discount notes in various open market transactions. As such, the total principal amount due to noteholders, other than LBI Media Holdings was $41.8 million as of June 30, 2011.

Cash Flows. Cash and cash equivalents were $19.7 million and $0.3 million at June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, respectively. The increase in our cash balances primarily reflects the net proceeds from the issuance of LBI Media’s senior secured notes in March 2011, after the repayment of LBI Media’s former senior credit facilities and transaction costs.

Net cash used in operating activities was $6.3 million and $4.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. This change was primarily attribable to an increase in television programming cost payments.

Net cash used in investing activities was $6.4 million and $11.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. During the six months ended June 30, 2011, our investing activities primarily consisted of fixed asset purchases related to the build-out of our new television production facility in Burbank, California. During the six months ended June 30, 2010, our investing activities primarily consisted of the acquisition of the broadcast license for television station KETD-TV in Denver, Colorado, partially offset by $1.7 million in net cash proceeds relating to the assignment of the asset purchase agreement to acquire radio station KDES-FM.

Net cash provided by financing activities was $32.0 million and $16.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. During the six months ended June 30, 2011, cash provided by financing activities reflected the net proceeds from the issuance of LBI Media’s senior secured notes, after the repayment of LBI Media’s former senior credit facilities and transaction costs. Cash provided by financing activities during the six months ended June 30, 2010 primarily reflected net borrowings under LBI Media’s former revolving credit facility.

Contractual Obligations. We have certain cash obligations and other commercial commitments, which will impact our short- and long-term liquidity. At June 30, 2011, such obligations and commitments were LBI Media’s senior secured revolving credit facility, 9  1/4% senior secured notes and 8  1/2% senior subordinated notes, our senior discount notes, certain non-recourse debt of one of our indirect, wholly owned subsidiaries, our operating leases and our Nielsen network ratings contract (for a description of this contract, see Note 7 “Commitments and Contingencies — Ratings Services” in our accompanying condensed consolidated unaudited financial statements) as follows (in millions):

Expected Use of Cash Flows. We believe that our cash on hand, cash expected to be provided by operating activities and available borrowings under LBI Media’s senior secured revolving credit facility will be sufficient to permit us to fund our contractual obligations and operations for at least the next twelve months. For both our radio and television segments, we have historically funded, and will continue to fund, expenditures for operations, administrative expenses, capital expenditures and debt service from our operating cash flow and from time to time, borrowings under a revolving credit facility of LBI Media.

We have used, and expect to continue to use, a portion of our capital resources to fund acquisitions. Future acquisitions will be funded from amounts available under LBI Media’s senior secured revolving credit facility, the proceeds of future equity or debt offerings and our internally generated cash flows. However, our ability to pursue future acquisitions may be impaired if we or our parent are unable to obtain funding from other capital sources. As a result, we may not be able to increase our revenues at the same rate as we have in recent years.

Inflation

We believe that inflation has not had a material impact on our results of operations for each of our fiscal years in the two-year period ended June 30, 2011. However, there can be no assurance that future inflation would not have an adverse impact on our operating results and financial condition.

Seasonality

Seasonal net revenue fluctuations are common in the television and radio broadcasting industry and result primarily from fluctuations in advertising expenditures by local and national advertisers. Our first fiscal quarter generally produces the lowest net revenue for the year.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We use the term “Adjusted EBITDA.” Adjusted EBITDA consists of net income or loss, plus income tax expense or benefit, gain or loss on sale and disposal of property and equipment, net interest expense, interest rate swap expense or income, depreciation and amortization, impairment of broadcast licenses and long-lived assets and stock-based compensation expense.

The term, as we define it, may not be comparable to a similarly titled measure employed by other companies and is not a measure of performance calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Management considers this measure an important indicator of its financial performance, as it eliminates the effects of certain of the Company’s non-cash items and the Company’s capital structure. In addition, it provides useful information to investors regarding our financial condition and results of operations and our ability to service debt. The measure should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for or superior to, other measures of liquidity and financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP, such as cash flows from operating activities, operating income or loss and net income or loss.

We believe Adjusted EBITDA is useful to an investor in evaluating its financial performance because:

 

   

it is widely used in the broadcasting industry to measure a company’s financial performance without regard to items such as net interest expense and depreciation, which can vary substantially from company to company, depending upon accounting methods and book value of assets, financing methods, capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired;

 

30


Table of Contents
   

it gives investors another measure to evaluate and compare the results of our operations from period to period by removing the impact of our capital structure (such as net interest expense and net interest rate swap expense), asset base (such as depreciation) and actions that do not affect liquidity (such as stock-based compensation expense) from our operating results; and

 

   

it helps investors identify items that are within our operational control. For example, depreciation charges, while a component of operating income, are fixed at the time of the asset purchase in accordance with the depreciable lives of the related asset and as such are not a directly controllable operating charge in the period.

Our management uses Adjusted EBITDA:

 

   

as a measure of operating performance because it assists us in comparing our financial performance on a consistent basis as it removes the impact of our capital structure, asset base and actions that do not affect liquidity from our operating results;

 

   

as a measure to assist us in evaluating and planning our acquisition strategy;

 

   

in presentations to our board of directors to enable them to have the same consistent measurement basis of financial performance used by management;

 

   

as a measure for determining our operating budget and its ability to fund working capital; and

 

   

as a measure for planning and forecasting capital expenditures.

The Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, has adopted rules regulating the use of non-GAAP financial measures, such as Adjusted EBITDA, in filings with the SEC and in disclosures and press releases. These rules require non-GAAP financial measures to be presented with and reconciled to the most nearly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP. We have included a presentation of net loss and a reconciliation to Adjusted EBITDA on a consolidated basis under “Item 2. Results of Operations.”

Critical Accounting Policies

The discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our condensed consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with GAAP. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates, including those related to acquisitions of radio station and television station assets, allowance for doubtful accounts, television program costs, intangible assets, property and equipment and commitments and contingencies. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

There were no significant changes to our critical accounting policies during the six months ended June 30, 2011. Please see “Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations”, contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010 for further discussion on our critical accounting policies.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

You can identify these statements by the use of words like “may,” “will,” “could,” “continue,” “expect” and variations of these words or comparable words. Actual results could differ substantially from the results that the forward-looking statements suggest for various reasons. The risks and uncertainties include but are not limited to:

 

   

sufficient cash to meet our debt service obligations;

 

   

general economic conditions in the United States and in the regions in which they operate;

changes in rules and regulations of the FCC;

 

   

our ability to attract, motivate and retain key personnel;

our ability to successfully affiliate with television stations and convert acquired radio and television stations to a Spanish-language format;

 

   

our ability to maintain FCC licenses for our radio and television stations;

 

   

successful integration of acquired radio and television stations;

 

   

potential disruption from natural hazards, equipment failure, power loss and other events or occurrences;

 

   

strong competition in the radio and television broadcasting industries;

 

   

our ability to remediate or otherwise mitigate any material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting or significant deficiencies that may be identified in the future;

 

   

compliance with our restrictive covenants on our debt instruments; and

 

   

our ability to obtain regulatory approval for future acquisitions.

The foregoing factors are not exhaustive, and new factors may emerge or changes to the foregoing factors may occur that could impact our business. The forward-looking statements in this Quarterly Report, as well as subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to us or persons acting on our behalf, are hereby expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements in this Quarterly Report, the risk factors included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010, our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 and other documents that we file from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission, particularly any Current Reports on Form 8-K. We are not obligated to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

In the ordinary course of business, we are exposed to various market risk factors, including fluctuations in interest rates and changes in general economic conditions. There were no material changes to our quantitative and qualitative disclosures about market risk during the six months ended June 30, 2011. Please see “Item 7A. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk”, contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010 for further discussion on quantitative and qualitative disclosures about market risk.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

(A) Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

As required by SEC Rule 15d-15(b), we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer, President and Secretary and our Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of June 30, 2011. Based on the foregoing, our Chief Executive Officer, President and Secretary and our Chief Financial Officer concluded that, as of the end of the period covered by this report, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective at the reasonable assurance level due to the material weakness described below.

As discussed in Part II, Item 9A “Controls and Procedures” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, we identified a material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting because we did not maintain effective controls over the accounting for income taxes, including the determination and reporting of deferred income taxes and the related income tax provision. Specifically, we did not have adequate personnel and other resources to enable us to (i) properly consider and apply U.S. generally accepted accounting principles providing guidance over accounting for income taxes, (ii) review and monitor the accuracy and completeness of the components of the income tax provision calculations and the related deferred taxes and (iii) ensure that effective oversight of the work performed by our outside tax advisors was exercised. In addition, until remediated, this material weakness could result in a misstatement in the tax-related accounts described above that would result in a material misstatement to our interim or annual consolidated financial statements and disclosures that would not be prevented or detected.

The material weakness resulted in accounting errors in the treatment of certain temporary state tax credits and the classification of certain deferred tax accounts relating to the Company’s indefinite-lived intangible assets that were not prevented or detected on a timely basis.

(B) Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

As of June 30, 2011, we have begun, but have not completely remediated the material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting with respect to our processes to accurately report our income tax provision as discussed above. Since

Table of Contents

the material weakness has been identified, we have undertaken an evaluation of our available resources and personnel deployed for accounting for income taxes, and are in the process of identifying necessary changes to our processes and the addition of personnel as required. Other than as described in this Item 4, there have been no significant changes in our internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation of such internal control that occurred during our last fiscal quarter, which have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings

Our dispute with Broadcast Music, Inc. relating to royalties is ongoing. During the three months ended June 30, 2011, the Company settled royalty disputes relating to its radio stations for approximately $0.4 million for periods subsequent to January 1, 2010. The remaining outstanding dispute relates to the Company’s radio stations for the period commencing January 1, 2007, through December 31, 2009. For more information on these proceedings, see “Note 7. Commitments and Contingencies” to our financial statements included elsewhere in this report and “Item 3. Legal Proceedings” in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2010.

We are subject to pending litigation arising in the normal course of our business. While it is not possible to predict the results of such litigation, management does not believe the ultimate outcome of these matters will have a materially adverse effect on our financial position or results of operations.
