NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)
 
(1)
Interim Financial Statements
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements of Beasley Broadcast Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries (the “Company”) included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form
10-K
for the year ended December 31, 2021. These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form
10-Q
and Article 10 of Regulation
S-X.
Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, the financial statements reflect all adjustments necessary for a fair statement of the financial position and results of operations for the interim periods presented, and all such adjustments are of a normal and recurring nature. The Company’s results are subject to seasonal fluctuations; therefore the results shown on an interim basis are not necessarily indicative of results for the full year.
 
(2)
Acquisitions and Dispositions
On June 22, 2022, the Company completed the acquisition of Guarantee Digital, LLC, a digital marketing agency, for $2.0 million in cash. The Company is currently determining whether the acquisition should be recorded as a business combination or an asset acquisition and has temporarily recorded the purchase price in other intangibles, net in the accompanying balance sheet as of June 30, 2022. The purchase price allocation is expected to be completed during the third quarter of 2022.
On April 1, 2022, the Company completed the sale of substantially all of the assets used in the operations of
WWNN-AM
in West Palm Beach-Boca Raton, FL to a third party for $1.25 million in cash. As a result of the sale, the Company recorded an impairment loss of $1.9 million related to the Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) license during the first quarter of 2022.
 
(3)
FCC Licenses
Changes in the carrying amount of FCC licenses for the six months ended June 30, 2022 are as follows:
 
Balance as of January 1, 2022
   $ 508,413,913  
Radio station disposition (see Note 2)
     (790,232
Impairment losses (see below and also Note 2)
     (4,619,772
    
 
 
 
Balance as of June 30, 2022
   $ 503,003,909  
    
 
 
 
FCC licenses are tested for impairment on an annual basis, or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the FCC licenses might be impaired. The Company assesses qualitative factors to determine whether it is more likely than not that its FCC licenses are impaired. If the Company determines it is more likely than not that its FCC licenses are impaired, then the Company is required to perform the quantitative impairment test. The quantitative impairment test compares the fair value of the FCC licenses with the carrying amounts of such licenses. If the carrying amounts of the FCC licenses exceed the fair value, an impairment loss is recognized in an amount equal to that excess. For the purpose of testing FCC licenses for impairment, the Company combines its licenses into reporting units based on its market clusters.
Due to an increase in interest rates in the U.S. economy, the Company tested its FCC licenses for impairment during the second quarter of 2022. As a result of the quantitative impairment test performed as of June 30, 2022, the Company recorded impairment losses of $2.8 million related to the FCC licenses in its Fort Myers-Naples, FL, Las Vegas, NV, and Wilmington, DE market clusters. The impairment losses were primarily due to an increase in the discount rate used in the discounted cash flow analyses to estimate the fair value of the FCC licenses due to certain risks associated with the U.S. economy.
The fair values of the FCC licenses in the Fort Myers-Naples, FL, Las Vegas, NV, and Wilmington, DE market clusters were estimated using an income approach. The income approach is based upon discounted cash flow analyses incorporating variables such as projected radio market revenues, projected growth rate for radio market revenues, projected radio market revenue shares, projected radio station operating income margins, and a discount rate appropriate for the radio broadcasting industry. The key assumptions used in the discounted cash flow analyses are as follows:
 

Revenue growth rates
   (1.9)
% -
15.9%
Market revenue shares at maturity
   0.6% - 44.0%

Goodwill
Changes in the carrying amount of goodwill for the six months ended June 30, 2022 are as follows:

Goodwill is tested for impairment on an annual basis, or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the Company’s goodwill might be impaired. The Company assesses qualitative factors to determine whether it is necessary to perform a quantitative assessment for each reporting unit. If the quantitative assessment is necessary, the Company will determine the fair value of each reporting unit. If the fair value of any reporting unit is less than the carrying amount, the Company will recognize an impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit’s fair value. The loss recognized will not exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to the reporting unit. For the purpose of testing goodwill for impairment, the Company has identified its radio market clusters and esports as its reporting units.
Due to an increase in interest rates in the U.S. economy, the Company tested its goodwill for impairment during the second quarter of 2022. As a result of the quantitative impairment test performed as of June 30, 2022, the Company recorded impairment losses of $5.9 million related to the goodwill in its Boston, MA, Charlotte, NC, Fayetteville, NC, Fort Myers-Naples, FL and Tampa-Saint Petersburg, FL market clusters. The impairment losses were primarily due to an increase in the discount rate used in the discounted cash flow analyses to estimate the fair value of goodwill due to certain risks associated with the U.S. economy.
The fair values of the goodwill in the Boston, MA, Charlotte, NC, Fayetteville, NC, Fort Myers-Naples, FL and Tampa-Saint Petersburg, FL market clusters was estimated using an income approach.

8.625
% per annum and is payable semiannually in arrears on February 1 and August 1 of each year. The Notes are secured on a first-lien priority basis by substantially all assets of the Company and its majority owned subsidiaries and are guaranteed jointly and severally by the Company and its majority owned subsidiaries. The Indenture contains restrictive covenants that limit the ability of the Company and its subsidiaries to, among other things, incur additional indebtedness, guarantee indebtedness or issue disqualified stock or, in the case of such subsidiaries, preferred stock; pay dividends on, repurchase or make distributions in respect of our capital stock or make other restricted payments; make certain investments or acquisitions; sell, transfer or otherwise convey certain assets; create

In April 2022, the Company repurchased $5.0 million aggregate principal amount of the Notes for an aggregate price equal to 96% of the principal amount. As a result of the repurchase, the Company recorded an aggregate gain on repurchase of long-term debt of $0.1 million during the second quarter of 2022. In July 2022, the Company repurchased $2.0 million principal amount of the Notes for a price equal to 75% of the principal amount.

The Company recognizes revenue when it satisfies a performance obligation under a contract with an advertiser. The transaction price is allocated to performance obligations based on executed contracts which represent relative standalone selling prices. Payment is generally due within 30 days, although certain advertisers are required to pay in advance. Revenues are reported at the amount the Company expects to be entitled to receive under the contract. The Company has elected to use the practical expedient to expense sales commissions as incurred. Payments received from advertisers before the performance obligation is satisfied are recorded as deferred revenue in the balance sheet. Substantially all deferred revenue is recognized within twelve months of the payment date.

Audio revenue includes revenue from the sale or trade of aired commercial spots to advertisers directly or through national, regional or local advertising agencies. Each commercial spot is considered a performance obligation. Revenue is recognized when the commercial spots have aired. Trade sales are recorded at the estimated fair value of the goods or services received. If commercial spots are aired before the goods or services are received, then a trade sales receivable is recorded. If goods or services are received before the commercial spots are aired, then a trade sales payable is recorded. Other revenue includes revenue from concerts, promotional events, talent fees and other miscellaneous items. Such revenue is generally recognized when the concert, promotional event, or talent services are completed.

Digital revenue includes revenue from the sale of streamed commercial spots, station-owned assets and third-party products. Each streamed commercial spot, station-owned asset and third-party product is considered a performance obligation. Revenue is recognized when the commercial spots have streamed. Station-owned assets are generally scheduled over a period of time and revenue is recognized over time as the digital items are used for advertising content except for streamed commercial spots. Third-party products are generally scheduled over a period of time with an impression target each month. Revenue from the sale of third-party products is recognized over time as the digital items are used for advertising content and impression targets are met each month.

Stock-Based Compensation
The Beasley Broadcast Group, Inc. 2007 Equity Incentive Award Plan (the “2007 Plan”) permits the Company to issue up to 7.5 million shares of Class A common stock. The 2007 Plan allows for eligible employees, directors and certain consultants of the Company to receive restricted stock units, shares of restricted stock, stock options or other stock-based awards. The restricted stock units that have been granted under the 2007 Plan generally vest over one to five years of service.
A summary of restricted stock unit activity is presented below:

The Company excluded the effect of restrictive stock units and restricted stock under the treasury stock method when reporting a net loss as the addition of shares was anti-dilutive. As a result, the Company excluded 136,119 shares for the three months ended June 30, 2022, and 77,908 shares and 171,501 shares for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2022, respectively.

Financial Instruments
The carrying amount of the Company’s financial instruments including cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable and accounts payable approximate fair value due to the short-term nature of these financial instruments.
The estimated fair value of the Notes, based on available market information, was $295.9 million and $228.6 million as of December 31, 2021 and June 30, 2022, respectively. The Company used Level 2 measurements under the fair value measurement hierarchy to determine the estimated fair value of the Notes.

Segment Information
The Company currently operates three operating segments (Audio, Digital, esports) and two reportable segments (Audio, Digital). The identification of segments is consistent with how the segments report to and are managed by the Company’s Chief Executive Officer (the Company’s Chief Operating Decision Maker). The Audio segment generates revenue primarily from the sale of commercial advertising to customers of the Company’s radio stations in the following radio markets: Atlanta, GA, Augusta, GA, Boston, MA, Charlotte, NC, Detroit, MI, Fayetteville, NC, Fort Myers-Naples, FL, Las Vegas, NV, Middlesex, NJ, Monmouth, NJ, Morristown, NJ, Philadelphia, PA, Tampa-Saint Petersburg, FL, and Wilmington, DE. The Digital segment generates revenue primarily from the sale of digital advertising to customers of the Company’s radio stations and other advertisers throughout the United States. Corporate includes general and administrative expenses and certain other income and expense items not allocated to the operating segments.
Non-operating
corporate items including interest expense and income taxes, are reported in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of comprehensive income (loss).

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.
General
We are a multi-platform media company whose primary business is operating radio stations throughout the United States. We offer local and national advertisers integrated marketing solutions across audio, digital and event platforms. We own and operate radio stations in the following radio markets: Atlanta, GA, Augusta, GA, Boston, MA, Charlotte, NC, Detroit, MI, Fayetteville, NC, Fort Myers-Naples, FL, Las Vegas, NV, Middlesex, NJ, Monmouth, NJ, Morristown, NJ, Philadelphia, PA, Tampa-Saint Petersburg, FL, and Wilmington, DE. We refer to each group of radio stations in each radio market as a market cluster. Unless the context otherwise requires, all references in this report to the “Company,” “we,” “us” or “our” are to Beasley Broadcast Group, Inc. and its subsidiaries.
Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
This report contains “forward-looking statements” about the Company within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995, which relate to future, not past, events. All statements other than statements of historical fact included in this document are forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are based on the current beliefs and expectations of the Company’s management and are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements, which address the Company’s expected business and financial performance and financial condition, among other matters, contain words such as: “expects,” “anticipates,” “intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “estimates,” “may,” “will,” “plans,” “projects,” “could,” “should,” “would,” “seek,” “forecast,” or other similar expressions.
Forward-looking statements, by their nature, address matters that are, to different degrees, uncertain. Although the Company believes the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are based upon reasonable assumptions, it can give no assurance that the expectations will be attained or that any deviation will not be material. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date on which they are made. The Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements.
Forward-looking statements involve a number of risks and uncertainties, and actual results or events may differ materially from those projected or implied in those statements. Factors that could cause actual results or events to differ materially from these forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to:
 
   
the effects of the
COVID-19
pandemic, including its potential effects on the economic environment and the Company’s results of operations, liquidity and financial condition, and the increased risk of impairments of the Company’s Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) licenses and/or goodwill;
 
   
external economic forces that could have a material adverse impact on the Company’s advertising revenues and results of operations;
 
   
the ability of the Company’s radio stations to compete effectively in their respective markets for advertising revenues;
 
   
the ability of the Company to develop compelling and differentiated digital content, products and services;
 
   
audience acceptance of the Company’s content, particularly its radio programs;
 
   
the ability of the Company to respond to changes in technology, standards and services that affect the radio industry;
 
   
the Company’s dependence on federally issued licenses subject to extensive federal regulation;
 
   
actions by the FCC or new legislation affecting the radio industry;
 
   
increases to royalties the Company pays to copyright owners or the adoption of legislation requiring royalties to be paid to record labels and recording artists;
 
   
the Company’s dependence on selected market clusters of radio stations for a material portion of its net revenue;
 
14

   
credit risk on the Company’s accounts receivable;
 
   
the risk that the Company’s FCC licenses and/or goodwill could become impaired;
 
   
the Company’s substantial debt levels and the potential effect of restrictive debt covenants on the Company’s operational flexibility and ability to pay dividends;
 
   
the potential effects of hurricanes on the Company’s corporate offices and radio stations;
 
   
the failure or destruction of the internet, satellite systems and transmitter facilities that the Company depends upon to distribute its programming;
 
   
disruptions or security breaches of the Company’s information technology infrastructure;
 
   
the loss of key personnel;
 
   
the Company’s ability to integrate acquired businesses and achieve fully the strategic and financial objectives related thereto and their impact on the Company’s financial condition and results of operations;
 
   
the fact that the Company is controlled by the Beasley family, which creates difficulties for any attempt to gain control of the Company; and
 
   
other economic, business, competitive, and regulatory factors affecting the businesses of the Company, including those set forth in the Company’s filings with the SEC.
Although we believe the expectations reflected in any of our forward-looking statements are reasonable, actual results could differ materially from those projected or assumed in any of our forward-looking statements. We do not intend, and undertake no obligation, to update any forward-looking statement.
Financial Statement Presentation
The following discussion provides a brief description of certain key items that appear in our financial statements and general factors that impact these items.
Net Revenue.
Our net revenue is primarily derived from the sale of commercial spots to advertisers directly or through national, regional or local advertising agencies. Revenues are reported at the amount we expect to be entitled to receive under the contract. Local revenue generally consists of commercial advertising sales, digital advertising sales and other sales to advertisers in a radio station’s local market, either directly to the advertiser or through the advertiser’s agency. National revenue generally consists of commercial advertising sales through advertiser agencies. National advertiser agencies generally purchase advertising for multiple markets. National sales are generally facilitated by our national representation firm, which serves as our agent in these transactions.
Our net revenue is generally determined by the advertising rates that we are able to charge and the number of advertisements that we can broadcast without jeopardizing listener levels. Advertising rates are primarily based on the following factors:
 
   
a radio station’s audience share in the demographic groups targeted by advertisers as measured principally by periodic reports issued by Nielsen Audio;
 
   
the number of radio stations, as well as other forms of media, in the market competing for the attention of the same demographic groups;
 
   
the supply of, and demand for, radio advertising time; and
 
   
the size of the market.
 
15

Our net revenue is affected by general economic conditions, competition and our ability to improve operations at our radio market clusters. Seasonal revenue fluctuations are also common in the radio broadcasting industry and are primarily due to variations in advertising expenditures by local and national advertisers. Our revenues typically are lowest in the first calendar quarter of the year. In addition, our revenues tend to fluctuate between years, consistent with, among other things, increased advertising expenditures in even-numbered years by political candidates, political parties and special interest groups. This political spending typically is heaviest during the fourth quarter of such years.
We use trade sales agreements to reduce cash paid for operating costs and expenses by exchanging advertising airtime for goods or services; however, we endeavor to minimize trade revenue in order to maximize cash revenue from our available airtime.
We also continue to invest in digital support services to develop and promote our radio station websites, applications, and other distribution platforms. We derive revenue from our websites through the sale of advertiser promotions and advertising on our websites and the sale of advertising airtime during audio streaming of our radio stations over the internet. We also generate revenue from selling third-party digital products and services.
Operating Expenses.
Our operating expenses consist primarily of programming, engineering, sales, advertising and promotion, and general and administrative expenses incurred at our radio stations. We strive to control our operating expenses by centralizing certain functions at our corporate offices and consolidating certain functions in each of our radio market clusters.
Critical Accounting Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect reported amounts and related disclosures. We consider an accounting estimate to be critical if:
 
   
it involves a significant level of estimation uncertainty; and
 
   
changes in the estimate or different estimates that could have been selected have had or are reasonably likely to have a material impact on our results of operations or financial condition.
FCC Licenses.
FCC licenses are tested for impairment on an annual basis, or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that our FCC licenses might be impaired. We assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is more likely than not that our FCC licenses are impaired. If we determine it is more likely than not that our FCC licenses are impaired, then we are required to perform the quantitative impairment test. The quantitative impairment test compares the fair value of our FCC licenses with the carrying amounts. If the carrying amounts of the FCC licenses exceed the fair value, an impairment loss is recognized in an amount equal to that excess. For the purpose of testing FCC licenses for impairment, we combine our FCC licenses into reporting units based on our market clusters.
Due to an increase in interest rates in the U.S. economy, we tested our FCC licenses for impairment during the second quarter of 2022. As a result of the quantitative impairment test performed as of June 30, 2022, we recorded impairment losses of $2.8 million related to the FCC licenses in our Fort Myers-Naples, FL, Las Vegas, NV, and Wilmington, DE market clusters. The impairment losses were due to an increase in the discount rate used in the discounted cash flow analyses to estimate the fair value of our FCC licenses due to certain risks associated with the U.S. economy.
The fair values of the FCC licenses in our Fort Myers-Naples, FL, Las Vegas, NV, and Wilmington, DE market clusters were estimated using an income approach. The income approach is based upon discounted cash flow analyses incorporating variables such as projected radio market revenues, projected growth rate for radio market revenues, projected radio market revenue shares, projected radio station operating income margins, and a discount rate appropriate for the radio broadcasting industry. The key assumptions used in the discounted cash flow analyses are as follows:
 
Revenue growth rates
  
(1.9)% - 15.9%
Market revenue shares at maturity
   0.6% - 44.0%
Operating income margins at maturity
   19.2% - 32.6%
Discount rate
   9.5%
 
16

The carrying amount of our FCC licenses for each reporting unit and the percentage by which fair value exceeded the carrying amount are as follows:

Goodwill.
We are required to test our goodwill for impairment on an annual basis, or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that our goodwill might be impaired. We assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is necessary to perform a quantitative assessment for each reporting unit. If the quantitative assessment is necessary, we will determine the fair value of each reporting unit. If the fair value of any reporting unit is less than the carrying amount, we will recognize an impairment charge for the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the reporting unit’s fair value. The loss recognized will not exceed the total amount of goodwill allocated to the reporting unit. For the purpose of testing our goodwill for impairment, we have identified our radio market clusters and esports as our reporting units.
Due to an increase in interest rates in the U.S. economy, we tested our goodwill for impairment during the second quarter of 2022. As a result of the quantitative impairment test performed as of June 30, 2022, we recorded impairment losses of $5.9 million related to the goodwill in our Boston, MA, Charlotte, NC, Fayetteville, NC, Fort Myers-Naples, FL and Tampa-Saint Petersburg, FL market clusters. The impairment losses were due to an increase in the discount rate used in the discounted cash flow analyses to estimate the fair value of our goodwill due to certain risks associated with the U.S. economy.
The fair values of the goodwill in our Boston, MA, Charlotte, NC, Fayetteville, NC, Fort Myers-Naples, FL and Tampa-Saint Petersburg, FL market clusters were estimated using an income approach. The income approach is based upon discounted cash flow analyses incorporating variables such as projected radio market revenues, projected growth rate for radio market revenues, projected radio market revenue shares, projected radio station operating income margins, and a discount rate appropriate for the radio broadcasting industry. The key assumptions used in the discounted cash flow analyses are as follows:
 
Revenue growth rates
  
(1.9)% - 11.1%
Operating income margins
   5.4% - 29.8%
Discount rate
   9.5%
We believe we have made reasonable estimates and assumptions to calculate the estimated fair value of our FCC licenses and goodwill, however, these estimates and assumptions are highly judgmental in nature. Actual results can be materially different from estimates and assumptions. If actual market conditions are less favorable than those projected by the industry or by us, or if events occur or circumstances change that would reduce the estimated fair value of our indefinite-lived intangible assets below the amounts reflected on our balance sheet, we may recognize future impairment charges, the amount of which may be material.
Our remaining critical accounting estimates are described in Item 7 of our Annual Report on Form
10-K
for the year ended December 31, 2021. There have been no additional material changes to our critical accounting estimates during the six months ended June 30, 2022.

Net Revenue.
Net revenue increased $5.2 million during the three months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2021. Audio revenue increased $2.2 million during the three months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2021, primarily due to continued recovery from the
COVID-19
pandemic. Digital revenue increased $2.7 million during the three months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2021, primarily due to continued growth in the digital segment.
Operating Expenses.
Operating expenses increased $5.1 million during the three months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2021. Audio operating expenses increased $3.5 million during the three months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2021, primarily due to continued recovery from the
COVID-19
pandemic. Digital operating expenses increased $1.3 million during the three months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2021, primarily due to continued investment in the digital segment.
Corporate Expenses.
Corporate expenses increased $0.6 million during the three months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the three months ended June 30, 2021, primarily due to an increase in compensation.
Impairment Losses.
Due to an increase in interest rates in the U.S. economy, we tested our FCC licenses and goodwill for impairment during the second quarter of 2022. As a result of the quantitative impairment tests, we recorded impairment losses of $2.8 million related to the FCC licenses in our Fort Myers-Naples, FL, Las Vegas, NV, and Wilmington, DE market clusters and impairment losses of $5.9 million related to the goodwill in our Boston, MA, Charlotte, NC, Fayetteville, NC, Fort Myers-Naples, FL and Tampa-Saint Petersburg, FL market clusters. The impairment losses were primarily due to an increase in the discount rate used in the discounted cash flow analyses to estimate the fair value of FCC licenses and goodwill due to certain risks associated with the U.S. economy.
 
18

Other Operating Income, Net.
Other operating income, net for the three months ended June 30, 2021 includes life insurance proceeds of $3.0 million related to the death of Mr. George Beasley, the Company’s former Chairman, in June 2021, partially offset by certain payments totaling $1.5 million that were accrued in accordance with Mr. Beasley’s employment contract.
Income Tax Expense (Benefit).
Our effective tax rate was approximately (120)% and 32% for the three months ended June 30, 2021 and 2022, respectively. These rates differ from the federal statutory rate of 21% due to the effect of state income taxes, certain
non-taxable
income, and certain expenses that are not deductible for tax purposes.
Net Income (Loss).
Net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2022 was $14.5 million compared to net income of $0.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2021 as a result of the factors described above.

Operating Expenses.
Operating expenses increased $12.2 million during the six months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2021. Audio operating expenses increased $9.6 million during the six months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2021, primarily due to continued recovery from the
COVID-19
pandemic. Digital operating expenses increased $2.4 million during the six months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2021, primarily due to continued investment in the digital segment.
Corporate Expenses.
Corporate expenses increased $0.9 million during the six months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2021, primarily due to an increase in cash compensation, contract services, and travel expenses.
Impairment Losses.
Due to an increase in interest rates in the U.S. economy, we tested our FCC licenses and goodwill for impairment during the second quarter of 2022. As a result of the quantitative impairment tests, we recorded impairment losses of $2.8 million related to the FCC licenses in our Fort Myers-Naples, FL, Las Vegas, NV, and Wilmington, DE market clusters and impairment losses of $5.9 million related to the goodwill in our Boston, MA, Charlotte, NC, Fayetteville, NC, Fort Myers-Naples, FL and Tampa-Saint Petersburg, FL market clusters. The impairment losses were primarily due to an increase in the discount rate used in the discounted cash flow analyses to estimate the fair value of FCC licenses and goodwill due to certain risks associated with the U.S. economy. On April 1, 2022, we completed the sale of substantially all of the assets used in the operations of
WWNN-AM
in West Palm Beach-Boca Raton, FL to a third party for $1.25 million in cash. As a result of the sale, we recorded an impairment loss of $1.9 million related to the FCC license during the first quarter of 2022.
Other Operating Income, Net.
Other operating income, net for the six months ended June 30, 2021 includes life insurance proceeds of $3.0 million related to the death of Mr. George Beasley, the Company’s former Chairman, in June 2021, partially offset by certain payments totaling $1.5 million that were accrued in accordance with Mr. Beasley’s employment contract, payments of $0.6 million for consulting services related to the
COVID-19
pandemic and expenses of $0.5 million related to the early termination of a programming contract.
Interest Expense.
Interest expense increased $1.0 million during the six months ended June 30, 2022, as compared to the six months ended June 30, 2021. The primary factors affecting interest expense were an increase in long-term debt outstanding and the applicable interest rate.
Loss on Extinguishment of Long-Term Debt.
We recorded a loss on extinguishment of long-term debt of $5.0 million during the six months ended June 30, 2021, resulting from the issuance of the Notes on February 2, 2021 and the use of proceeds to repay the credit facility.
Income Tax Benefit.
Our effective tax rate was approximately (27)% and (13)% for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2022, respectively. These rates differ from the federal statutory rate of 21% due to the effect of state income taxes, certain
non-taxable
income, and certain expenses that are not deductible for tax purposes.
Net Loss.
Net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2022 was $18.0 million compared to a net loss of $10.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 as a result of the factors described above.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Overview.
 Our primary sources of liquidity are internally generated cash flow and cash on hand. Our primary liquidity needs have been, and for the next twelve months and thereafter are expected to continue to be, for working capital, debt service, and other general corporate purposes, including capital expenditures and radio station acquisitions. Historically, our capital expenditures have not been significant. In addition to property and equipment associated with radio station acquisitions, our capital expenditures have generally been, and are expected to continue to be, related to the maintenance of our office and studio space, the maintenance of our radio towers and equipment, and digital products and information technology. We have also purchased or constructed office and studio space in some of our markets to facilitate the consolidation of our operations.
In response to the
COVID-19
pandemic, our board of directors has suspended future quarterly dividend payments until it is determined that resumption of dividend payments is in the best interest of the Company’s stockholders. In addition, as discussed in “Secured Notes” below, the Indenture governing our Notes limits our ability to pay dividends.
 
20

Secured Notes.
On February 2, 2021, we issued $300.0 million aggregate principal amount of 8.625% senior secured notes due on February 1, 2026 (the “Notes”) under an indenture dated February 2, 2021 (the “Indenture”). Interest on the Notes accrues at the rate of 8.625% per annum and is payable semiannually in arrears on February 1 and August 1 of each year. The Notes are secured on a first-lien priority basis by substantially all assets of the Company and its majority owned subsidiaries and are guaranteed jointly and severally by the Company and its majority owned subsidiaries. The Indenture contains restrictive covenants that limit the ability of the Company and its subsidiaries to, among other things, incur additional indebtedness, guarantee indebtedness or issue disqualified stock or, in the case of such subsidiaries, preferred stock; pay dividends on, repurchase or make distributions in respect of our capital stock or make other restricted payments; make certain investments or acquisitions; sell, transfer or otherwise convey certain assets; create liens; enter into agreements restricting certain subsidiaries’ ability to pay dividends or make other intercompany transfers; consolidate, merge, sell or otherwise dispose of all or substantially all of our assets; enter into transactions with affiliates; prepay certain kinds of indebtedness; and issue or sell stock of our subsidiaries.
In April 2022, we repurchased $5.0 million aggregate principal amount of the Notes for an aggregate price equal to 96% of the principal amount. As a result of the repurchase, we recorded an aggregate gain on repurchase of long-term debt of $0.1 million during the second quarter of 2022. In July 2022, we repurchased $2.0 million principal amount of the Notes for a price equal to 75% of the principal amount. As a result of the repurchase, we recorded a gain on repurchase of long-term debt of $0.5 million during the third quarter of 2022.
From time to time, we repurchase sufficient shares of our common stock to fund withholding taxes in connection with the vesting of restricted stock units. We paid $0.1 million to repurchase 70,823 shares during the six months ended June 30, 2022. From time to time, we may seek to repurchase, redeem or otherwise retire our Notes through cash purchases and/or exchanges for equity securities, in open market purchases, privately negotiated transactions, tender offers or otherwise. Such repurchases, redemptions or other transactions, if any, will depend on prevailing market conditions, our liquidity requirements, contractual restrictions, and other factors. The amounts involved may be material.
We expect to provide for future liquidity needs through one or a combination of the following sources of liquidity:
 
   
internally generated cash flow;
 
   
additional borrowings or notes offerings, to the extent permitted under the Indenture governing our Notes; and
 
   
additional equity offerings.
We believe we will have sufficient liquidity and capital resources to permit us to provide for our liquidity requirements and meet our financial obligations for the next twelve months and thereafter. However, poor financial results or unanticipated expenses could give rise to default under the Notes, additional debt servicing requirements or other additional financing or liquidity requirements sooner than we expect, and we may not secure financing when needed or on acceptable terms.
Off-Balance
Sheet Arrangements.
We did not have any
off-balance
sheet arrangements as of June 30, 2022.
Cash Flows
. The following summary table presents a comparison of our cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2022 with respect to certain of our key measures affecting our liquidity. The changes set forth in the table are discussed in greater detail below. This section should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes to financial statements included in Item 1 of this report.
