Share:

NEW YORK, Aug. 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Madison Square Garden Company (NYSE:MSG) today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended June 30, 2019.

For fiscal 2019, the Company generated revenues of approximately $1.6 billion, which represents an increase of 5% as compared to the prior year, due to growth at both the MSG Entertainment and MSG Sports segments.  In addition, the Company generated an operating loss of $13.9 million, as compared to operating income of $23.1 million in fiscal 2018, and adjusted operating income of $169.8 million, a decrease of $28.2 million as compared to fiscal 2018.(1)(2)  This was primarily due to increased expenses in Corporate and Other, which reflects higher professional fees including costs related to the proposed spin-off of the Company's sports business, and higher employee compensation mainly as a result of the Company's ongoing investment in personnel as it moves forward with its growth plans.

For the fiscal 2019 fourth quarter on a reported basis, the Company generated revenues of $263.6 million, a decrease of 17% as compared with the prior year quarter.  In addition, the Company generated an operating loss of $79.9 million as compared to an operating loss of $44.2 million in the prior year quarter and adjusted operating loss of $34.9 million, as compared to an adjusted operating loss of $1.3 million in the prior year quarter.

Excluding the impact of ASC Topic 606, fiscal 2019 fourth quarter revenues would have been $326.2 million, an increase of 3% as compared with the prior year period.(3) In addition, operating loss would have decreased by $2.9 million to a loss of $41.3 million and adjusted operating income would have increased by $5.0 million to $3.7 million, both as compared to the prior year period.(4)  For comparative purposes, please note that net provisions for certain team personnel transactions decreased by $21.5 million in the fiscal 2019 fourth quarter, as compared with the prior year quarter.

Executive Chairman and CEO James L. Dolan said, "Ongoing demand for our sports and entertainment assets helped drive a number of operational highlights in fiscal 2019, including continued growth in bookings, productions, suites, marketing partnerships and media rights.  Looking ahead, we remain confident in the strength of our core businesses and expect fiscal 2020 to be an important year as we work to complete the proposed sports spin-off and begin to usher in the company's next chapter, with MSG Sphere in Las Vegas starting to take shape."

  1. See page 4 of this earnings release for the definition of adjusted operating income (loss) included in the discussion of non-GAAP financial measures.
  2. The Company records TAO Group's operating income results in its consolidated statements of operations on a three-month lag basis.
  3. Effective July 1, 2018, the Company adopted ASU 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (ASC Topic 606), the new accounting standard for revenue recognition.  The most significant impact of ASC Topic 606 in fiscal 2019 is a change in the timing of when certain Company revenue streams and professional sports team-related fulfillment expenses are recognized during the fiscal year.
  4. See pages 8-9 of this earnings release for a reconciliation of adjusted operating income (loss) to adjusted operating income (loss) excluding the impact of ASC Topic 606.
  5. Corporate and Other primarily consists of i) unallocated corporate general and administrative costs, including professional fees for initiatives such as the Company's proposed spin-off of its Sports business; ii) unallocated venue-related depreciation and amortization expense; iii) MSG Sphere technology and content development; and iv) inter-segment eliminations.

MSG Entertainment
For the fiscal 2019 fourth quarter as compared to the prior year period, MSG Entertainment revenues of $174.0 million decreased 6%.  The decrease was primarily due to lower event-related revenues at the Company's venues and, to a lesser extent, lower event-related revenues for the Boston Calling festival, the impact of ASC Topic 606 on suite license fees and the wind-down of Obscura Digital's third-party business. This was partially offset by higher TAO Group revenues and sponsorship and signage revenues.

Fiscal 2019 fourth quarter operating loss of $7.2 million increased by $7.2 million and adjusted operating income of $1.1 million decreased by $7.1 million.  This primarily reflects the decrease in revenues, partially offset by lower direct operating expenses.

The decrease in direct operating expenses was primarily due to lower event-related expenses at the Company's venues and, to a lesser extent, lower venue operating costs and lower expenses for Obscura Digital and the Boston Calling festival.  This was partially offset by higher TAO Group expenses.

Excluding the impact of ASC Topic 606, fiscal 2019 fourth quarter MSG Entertainment revenues would have been $180.9 million, a decrease of 3% as compared to the prior year period.  In addition, fiscal 2019 fourth quarter operating loss would have increased by $4.7 million to a loss of $4.7 million and adjusted operating income would have decreased by $4.6 million to $3.6 million, both as compared to the prior year period.

MSG Sports
For the fiscal 2019 fourth quarter as compared to the prior year period, MSG Sports revenues of $90.0 million decreased 32%.  The decrease in revenues was primarily due to the impact of ASC Topic 606, which significantly impacted professional sports teams' regular-season ticket-related revenue, local media rights fees from MSG Networks Inc., suite license fees, league distributions and sponsorship and signage revenues.  The overall decrease in these revenue lines was partially offset by higher event-related revenues from other live sporting events.

Fiscal 2019 fourth quarter operating income decreased by $16.9 million to a loss of $11.6 million and adjusted operating income decreased by $16.5 million to a loss of $5.7 million.  This primarily reflects the decrease in revenues, partially offset by lower direct operating expenses.                

The decrease in direct operating expenses was primarily due to lower net provisions for certain team personnel transactions and lower team personnel compensation costs, partially offset by higher event-related expenses from other live sporting events.

Excluding the impact of ASC Topic 606, fiscal 2019 fourth quarter MSG Sports revenues would have been $145.7 million, an increase of 10% as compared to the prior year period.  In addition, fiscal 2019 fourth quarter operating income would have been $24.4 million, an increase of $19.2 million, and adjusted operating income would have been $30.4 million, an increase of $19.6 million, both as compared to the prior year period.

Corporate and Other
For the fiscal 2019 fourth quarter, Corporate and Other operating loss of $55.6 million increased by $11.8 million and adjusted operating loss of $30.3 million increased by $10.1 million, primarily due to higher selling, general and administrative expenses, mainly as a result of higher professional fees and employee compensation and related benefits.

MSG Sphere in Las Vegas
The Company has made significant progress on MSG Sphere at The Venetian, its state-of-the-art entertainment venue currently under construction in Las Vegas.

MSG views both innovative design and cost management as key imperatives to the construction process. While it is always difficult to provide a definitive construction cost estimate for large-scale construction projects, it is particularly challenging for one as unique as MSG Sphere. In May, the Company's Board of Directors approved a preliminary cost estimate of $1.2 billion based upon schematic designs for purposes of developing the Company's budget and financial projections. MSG expects the estimation process for MSG Sphere construction costs will be dynamic as the project moves forward. The actual construction costs for MSG Sphere in Las Vegas incurred through June 30, 2019 were approximately $109 million.

In June, MSG announced that it engaged AECOM - a leading builder known for creating bold, innovative projects - as its general contractor. MSG made the strategic decision to enter into a "cost plus" construction contract with AECOM. While this type of contract adds to the complexity of the cost estimation process, MSG believes its "cost plus" construction contract with AECOM will help its efforts to maximize the quality of work, while permitting it to play a more vigilant role in managing the project's costs, including full transparency into the selection of, negotiations with, and labor and materials utilized by subcontractors.

In order to further drive cost control, under the terms of the construction contract, AECOM will receive lower fees if the "hard" construction costs come in greater than an "incentive benchmark" agreed upon by the Company and AECOM. The process of setting the incentive benchmark began in July when AECOM provided the Company with its proposal, representing its estimate of the hard construction costs of the project. AECOM's initial benchmark proposal, together with the costs of additional core technology and estimated soft costs, results in a project cost estimate that is approximately $1.7 billion. MSG believes this cost estimate is too high and is now in the contractual process of reviewing, testing and challenging the elements of AECOM's estimates and assumptions. MSG is also value engineering aspects of the project to further reduce costs. MSG intends to do this in a granular fashion using, among other resources, its outside project manager. MSG believes it will be successful in achieving significant cost reductions through this process, while noting that there are no assurances that it will reach an agreement on the incentive benchmark.

The above cost estimates for the MSG Sphere in Las Vegas have been reduced to reflect the $75 million that the Las Vegas Sands Corp. has agreed to pay the Company to defray the construction costs of a pedestrian bridge that will link the venue to the Sands Expo Convention Center. The estimates and costs also do not contain significant capitalized and non-capitalized costs for items such as content creation, internal labor costs, and furniture and equipment. As with any major construction project, the construction of MSG Spheres is subject to potential unexpected delays, costs or other complications. MSG's goal is to open MSG Sphere in Las Vegas in calendar year 2021.

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

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