TECHNICOLOR: FIRST HALF 2017 RESULTS

PRESS RELEASE

     Technicolor: FIRST HALF 2017 results

Paris (France), 26 July 2017 - Technicolor (Euronext Paris: TCH; OTCQX: TCLRY) announces today its results for the first half of 2017.

Frederic Rose, Chief Executive Officer of Technicolor, stated:

"Following a slow start to the year, we saw a marked improvement in the latter half of the period across all our operating businesses which we expect to carry through for the rest of the year."

First Half 2017 key highlights

  • First half 2017 revenues were at €2,146 million and the Adjusted EBITDA at €107 million. This was largely attributed to:
    • The Connected Home Adjusted EBITDA decreased year-on-year as a result of lower revenues versus a very strong first half 2016 performance, which was exacerbated by the €30 million negative impact of memory price increases;
    • The Technology segment revenues declined compared to a very strong first half 2016 performance and due to the expiry of Digital TV agreements in anticipation of the ramp up of the joint licensing program with Sony.
  • Entertainment Services saw a stable Adjusted EBITDA as Production Services revenue and profit growth was constrained by capacity ramp up and DVD Services improvement in margin was offset by a mix which was heavily weighted toward Standard Definition discs;
  • Free cash flow excluding cash impacts of the CRT[1] case settlements amounted to €(67) million due to the lower Adjusted EBITDA. Group free cash flow amounted to €(148) million;
  • Technicolor reinforced its cost optimization program while working on ongoing mitigation actions related to the memory cost impact.

Full Year 2017 objectives confirmed

As a result of the memory price increases affecting Connected Home profitability, Technicolor expects to deliver an Adjusted EBITDA in the range of €420 million to €480 million as announced on June 29, 2017.

The Group confirms its free cash flow objective (in excess of €150 million before cash impacts of the CRT cartel case settlements). These cash settlements amounted to €81 million and were paid in the first half of 2017.

These objectives are calculated based on constant exchange rates.

Segment review - H1 2017 result highlights

Connected Home revenues amounted to €1,252 million, down 11.2% year-on-year at constant rate mainly resulting from a continued weak macro-economic environment in Latin America and the delayed ramp in the early part of the year of a number of large contracts in Western Europe. After a slow start in the first quarter, Connected Home experienced very strong growth in the second quarter, particularly in North America which represented 63% of total revenues for the first half.

North America:

  • Revenue growth materially accelerated in the second quarter with record deliveries across several cable customers, fueled in particular by large volumes of the Worldbox to Charter. As a result, Technicolor substantially outperformed the overall North American market;
  • Twelve new product introductions, both in Video and Broadband are planned in the second half across North American customers;
  • Commercial activity remained strong with a win rate of 76% on different tender offers.

Europe, Middle East and Africa:

  • Revenues were affected by the end of some large deployments in the last part of 2016 and shipment delays to a large customer.

Latin America:

  • Technicolor maintained its leading market share position both in Broadband and Video. Revenues were affected by continued difficult market conditions in Mexico which remained the most challenging market. Technicolor saw stabilization in Brazil and growth in other countries like Argentina and Chile.

Asia Pacific:

  • Revenues were down year-on-year due to lower deliveries in India and Australia, partly compensated by growth in Japan and South Korea.

      

Revenue breakdown for Connected Home

   First Half
In € million 2016 2017 Change[2]
Total revenues 1,378 1,252 (9.2)%
By region North America 724 790 +9.1%

  Asia-Pacific 110 100 (8.9)%
By product Video 790 748 (5.3)%
  Broadband 588 504 (14.4)%

Adjusted EBITDA amounted to €57 million, or 4.6% of revenue, down 310 basis points compared to last year. The margin decline was driven by the gross margin squeeze resulting from memory price increases. Excluding the memory cost impact, Adjusted EBITDA margin would have reached 7.0%.

Gross margin reached 14.1%, down 230 basis points compared to the first half of 2016, mainly due to the negative impact of memory price increases that amounted to €30 million. The gross margin excluding the memory cost impact would have reached 16.5%.

###

Entertainment Services revenues amounted to €838 million in the first half of 2017, down 3.3% at constant currency compared to the first half of 2016.

  • Production Services revenues amounted to €383 million in the first half of 2017, up 4.9% at constant currency compared to the first half of 2016, driven by a strong performance in Animation, Games and Post-Production.

     The level of activity in VFX for film and TV was sustained with the teams working on more than 25 Film projects, including Warner Bros. Wonder Woman and Paramount's Transformers: The Last Knight, and over 10 TV projects, including season 5 of Vikings (History) and season 2 of The Shannara Chronicles (MTV/Spike). Several large VFX film projects began in the first half, including Disney's live-action adaptation of The Lion King. Capacity expansion program continued through the first half coupled with the hiring of additional creative talent.

     Revenue growth was strong in Animation driven by the delivery of DreamWorks Animation's Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, the ramp-up of several long form feature animation projects, such as Paramount's Sherlock Gnomes and a very solid pipeline in content IP.

     Post-Production activity experienced growth particularly in the theatrical sound business and saw growing success with Netflix Originals.

     VFX for Advertising was slightly lower compared to the first half of 2016, which included more VFX-heavy campaigns, resulting in a weaker mix compared to last year.

  • DVD Services revenues reached €454 million in the first half of 2017, down c.9% at constant currency compared to the first half of 2016.  Overall disc volumes recorded a year-on-year net increase in the second quarter compensating the weak performance of the first quarter and resulted in a reduction of less than 6% year-on-year. This demonstrated resiliency of the business given the comparative strength of the first half of 2016, which benefited from a number of major blockbuster releases including Star Wars: The Force Awakens and a higher number of AAA Games

     Volume trends in the first half of 2017 were driven in large part by robust DVD back catalog activity in North America, highlighting continued, broad-based consumer demand for packaged media content. Games volume declined, as there was only one major Xbox One title release during the first half, and represented only a very small percentage of total overall disc volume in the period.

  Music & Audio 55.0 45.2 (17.9)%

Adjusted EBITDA reached €72 million in the first half of 2017, globally stable compared to the first half of 2016:

  • Adjusted EBITDA of Production Services was stable year-on-year as Technicolor expanded its capacity and hired additional talent to deliver strong growth in the second half of 2017;
     
  • In DVD Services, year-on-year percentage profitability improved as a result of cost saving actions directly related to the integration of Cinram North American assets in 2016.  These improvements were, however, globally offset by product mix impacts.

Technology revenues amounted to €56 million in the first half of 2017, down €103 million compared to the first half of 2016 excluding MPEG LA revenues. This significant decline was caused by the strength of the first half of 2016 resulting from the success of our licensing efforts (revenues excluding MPEG LA were up 58% in that period). These agreements included one-off revenues including the lump sum payment related to an HEVC licensing deal and several upfront payments related to other licensing agreements.

In the context of its joint licensing program with Sony in Digital TV, Technicolor did not renew a number of its agreements in that field to allow the Group, as agent for the program to start discussions with manufacturers.

Adjusted EBITDA amounted to €19 million, or a margin of 33.2%. The margin decline was largely due to the fixed cost structure of the business. Licensing operations and Research & Innovations spending remained stable year-on-year.

The timeline of its ongoing licensing discussions is expected to result in new agreements being signed in the second half of 2017.

Group revenues from continuing operations totaled €2,146 million in the first half of 2017, down by 12.6% at constant currency compared to the first half of 2016, resulting mainly from lower revenues in the Connected Home segment and in DVD Services.

Adjusted EBITDA from continuing operations amounted to €107 million in the first half of 2017, down 60.9% at constant currency compared to the first half of 2016. The Adjusted EBITDA margin amounted to 5.0%, down by 6 points year-on-year due mainly to the margin squeeze in the Connected Home segment due to the memory cost impact and the much lower contribution of the high-margin Technology business.

Depreciation and Amortization amounted to €119 million out of which €26 million of amortization was related to purchase price allocation, mostly related to the 2015 acquisitions.

EBIT from continuing operations totaled €(37) million in the first half of 2017. This was mostly due to the lower Adjusted EBITDA as restructuring costs and other non-current items recorded a significant decrease compared to last year. Restructuring provisions were mainly taken in the Connected Home segment and in DVD Services. Non-current items were much lower notwithstanding some additional integration fees in the Connected Home segment. Excluding the purchase price allocation amortization, EBIT from continuing operations was a loss of €11 million in the first half of 2017.

The Group's financial result totaled €(62) million in the first half of 2017 compared to €(73) million in the first half of 2016, reflecting:

  • Net interest costs amounted to €(24) million in the first half of 2017 compared to €(44) million in the first half of 2016, reflecting lower interest expense both related to lower debt (317m€ of net repayments done in 2016) and lower average interest rates due to the 2017 refinancing;
  • Other financial charges amounted to €(38) million in the first half of 2017 compared to €(29) million in the first half of 2016. These charges included the IFRS adjustment write off for €27 million, that was generated by the repayment of the old Term Loan maturing in 2020.

Income tax amounted to €11 million, lower by €19 million compared to last year, mostly due to lower results.

Net income was a loss of €106 million in the first half of 2017 compared to a loss of 54 million in the first
half of 2017.

  • Capital expenditures amounted to €69 million, down by €5 million year-on-year;

  • The change in working capital & other assets and liabilities was negative €29 million in the first half of 2017 mostly driven by the seasonality of DVD services;

Group free cash flow amounted to €(148) million in the first half of 2017, including:

  • Financial charges were €37 million, down by €10 million year-on-year due to lower interest expense both related to lower debt (€317million of net repayments done in 2016) and lower average interest rates due to refinancing;
  • Tax cash inflow was €3 million, improved by €43 million year-on-year, due to lower results and the monetization of research tax credit for around €10 million;
  • Other cash charges reached €20 million, mainly reflecting pensions for €12 million and Connected Home integration cash outflow for €2 million;
  • Cash impact of the CRT settlements amounted to €81 million.

Nominal gross debt totaled €1,099 million at end June 2017, up €16 million versus end December 2016, after partial refinancing of the Group's debt in March 2017.

The Group's cash position amounted to €183 million at end June 2017, down by €188 million compared to end December 2016, mainly reflecting the negative free cash flow and the dividend payment for €25 million.

Net debt at nominal value amounted to €916 million at end June 2017, compared to €712 million at end December 2016 mainly due to the lower cash position.
