Published

MONTRÉAL, Aug. 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ - Quebecor Inc. ("Quebecor" or the "Corporation") today reported its consolidated financial results for the second quarter of 2019. Quebecor consolidates the financial results of Quebecor Media Inc. ("Quebecor Media"), a wholly owned subsidiary since June 22, 2018.

As described under "Changes in Accounting Policies" below, on January 1, 2019 the Corporation adopted on a fully retrospective basis the new rules in IFRS 16 – Leases. Accordingly, comparative figures have been restated to reflect the impact of the new rules. 

Second quarter 2019 highlights 

  • Revenues: $1.06 billion in the second quarter of 2019, up $18.2 million (1.8%) from the same period of 2018.
  • Adjusted EBITDA1: $455.0 million, up $29.1 million (6.8%). Without restatement of comparative figures following the adoption of IFRS 16, adjusted EBITDA increased $40.8 million (9.9%).
  • Net income attributable to shareholders: $140.2 million ($0.55 per basic share) in the second quarter of 2019, compared with $42.0 million ($0.18 per basic share) in the same period of 2018, an increase of $98.2 million ($0.37 per basic share). Without restatement of comparative figures following the adoption of IFRS 16, net income attributable to shareholders was $140.2 million in the second quarter of 2019 compared with $41.3 million in the same period of 2018, a $98.9 million increase.
  • Adjusted income from continuing operating activities2: $136.2 million ($0.53 per basic share) in the second quarter of 2019, compared with $105.9 million ($0.45 per basic share) in the same period of 2018, an increase of $30.3 million ($0.08 per basic share) or 28.6%.
  • The Telecommunications segment grew its revenues by $12.0 million (1.4%) and its adjusted EBITDA by $20.2 million (4.7%) in the second quarter of 2019. Without restatement of comparative figures following the adoption of IFRS 16, the Telecommunications segment's adjusted EBITDA increased $30.3 million (7.2%).
  • Videotron Ltd. ("Videotron") significantly increased its revenues from mobile telephony ($15.6 million or 11.9%) and Internet access ($7.1 million or 2.6%) in the second quarter of 2019.

Mobile ABPU was $52.56 in the second quarter of 2019 compared with $53.70 in the same period of 2018, a $1.14 (‑2.1%) decrease due in part to the popularity of bring your own device plans.
  • Subscriber connections to the mobile telephony service increased by 38,300 in the second quarter of 2019 compared with an increase of 31,900 in the same period of 2018.
  • On June 5, 2019, TVA Group Inc. ("TVA Group") announced that, on account of significant viewing changes related to the globalization of content and of the proliferation of unregulated distribution vehicles, it needed to make deep budget cuts to preserve its leading position in the Québec market and protect the production of original French‑language content in Québec. TVA Group's budget reduction plan affects all its segments and regrettably entails the elimination of 68 positions.
  • On April 10, 2019, Videotron acquired 10 blocks of low‑frequency spectrum in the 600 MHz band in Innovation, Science and Economic Development Canada's ("ISED Canada") commercial mobile spectrum auction. The licences, covering the Eastern, Southern and Northern Québec, as well as the Outaouais and Eastern Ontario regions, were acquired for $255.8 million. Among other things, they will support the roll‑out of 5G new‑generation mobile capabilities.
  • On April 1, 2019, TVA Group closed the acquisition of the companies in the Incendo Media inc. ("Incendo Media") group, a Montréal‑based producer and distributor of television programs for international markets, for a cash consideration of $11.1 million (net of cash acquired of $0.9 million) and a balance payable at fair value of $6.8 million.

"I am very satisfied with Quebecor's performance in the second quarter of 2019," said Pierre Karl Péladeau, President and Chief Executive Officer of Quebecor. "The Corporation's operating profits continued to show strong growth, driven by Videotron. It demonstrates our ability to deliver on our action plans, which target promising investments for the Corporation's future."

"Videotron maintained its excellent performance, particularly in mobile telephony, where subscriber connections increased by 152,700 or 14.1% during the 12‑month period ended June 30, 2019," commented Jean‑François Pruneau, President and Chief Executive Officer of Videotron. "Our constant goal is to strengthen that trend and retain our leading position by innovating and investing in state‑of‑the‑art technology. With our partners in the Open‑Air Laboratory for Smart Living, we announced the creation of a first new‑generation 5G site that will help lay the foundations for the development of the next‑generation mobile network. We also continued working on the upcoming launch of Helix, based on our partner Comcast Corporation's Xfinity XI platform. Currently in testing with a large group of employees, Helix will enable convergence among all the technologies in a home. To enlarge our geographic footprint, we also announced plans to expand into the Abitibi‑Témiscamingue region, now served by a single wireline provider, and offer our cable television, Internet and cable telephone services there, in addition to our currently available mobile telephony service.

"During the quarter, Fizz won the prestigious 'Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Award,' awarded by the TM Forum to recognize digital innovation," Mr. Pruneau added. "The TM Forum is the telecommunications industry association that includes digital service providers around the world. I am very proud of this honour and also of Videotron's No. 1 ranking on the Top‑Rated Workplaces: Best in Québec list, based on reviews left by employees on Indeed, Canada's top job site."

"TVA Group posted a $6.6 million favourable variance in adjusted EBITDA in the second quarter, largely because of the integration of the Évasion and Zeste specialty channels and the improvement in TVA Sports' negative adjusted EBITDA, combined with cost‑reduction initiatives implemented during the quarter," said France Lauzière, President and Chief Executive Officer of TVA Group. "TVA Group's total television market share increased 0.3 points to 40.5%.1 TVA Network had 7 of the top 10 shows in Québec during the second quarter of 2019, including La Voix, which held the top spot with an average audience of more than 1.9 million."

"In the second quarter of 2019, TVA Group was forced to make deep budget cuts in response to economic and competitive environments that have been destabilizing the television industry for years, combined with a regulatory framework that places Québec and Canadian companies at a competitive disadvantage," Mr. Péladeau commented. "For years, the television industry has been contending with numerous inequities, which have been exacerbated by the lack of decisive action by regulatory authorities to modernize the Canadian system.

"Moreover, the announced acquisition of the conventional television network V and its digital assets by Bell Media will further undermine Québec's media ecosystem by allowing a dominant player to become even more so. We have therefore been forced to take action and we are making our case to the appropriate bodies in order to protect the services available to consumers for the long term. The business practices of Bell Canada, which is both broadcaster and distributor, do not recognize the fair market value of TVA Group's specialty channels, including TVA Sports, and have forced us to sound the alarm to alert regulatory authorities to the need to correct these major flaws in the Canadian broadcasting system".

"In view of the CRTC's refusal to act and inability to modernize, we intend to vigorously defend our rights in court, as we have done successfully against Bell Canada on several occasions," Mr. Péladeau added.

"We continue investing and diversifying our revenue streams by broadening our range of products and services and expanding geographically in order to give consumers a real choice. Building on our successes, which have delivered attractive returns for our shareholders and a stimulating work environment for our employees, we are more firmly focused on the future than ever," Pierre Karl Péladeau concluded.

Discontinued operations

On January 24, 2019, Videotron sold its 4Degrees Colocation Inc. data centre operations for an amount of $261.6 million, which was fully paid in cash at the date of transaction. An amount of $0.9 million relating to a working capital adjustment was also paid by Videotron in the second quarter of 2019. The determination of the final proceeds from the sale is however subject to certain adjustments based on the realization of future conditions over a period of up to 10 years. Accordingly, a gain on disposal of $97.2 million, net of income taxes of $18.5 million, was accounted for in the first quarter of 2019, while an amount of $53.1 million from the proceeds received at the date of transaction was deferred in connection with the estimated present value of the future conditional adjustments. The results of operations and cash flows of these businesses were reclassified as discontinued operations in the consolidated statements of income and cash flows. In this press release, only continuing operating activities of Quebecor Media are included in the analysis of its segment operating results.

Changes in Accounting Policies 

On January 1, 2019, the Corporation adopted, on a fully retrospective basis, the new rules under IFRS 16 which set out new principles for the recognition, measurement, presentation and disclosure of leases for both parties to a contract. The standard provides lessees with a single accounting model for all leases, with certain exemptions. In particular, lessees are required to report most leases on their balance sheets by recognizing right‑of‑use assets and related financial liabilities. Assets and liabilities arising from a lease are initially measured on a present value basis. The adoption of IFRS 16 had significant impacts on the consolidated financial statements since all of the Corporation segments are engaged in various long‑term leases relating to premises and equipment. Under IFRS 16, most lease charges are now expensed as a depreciation of the right‑of‑use asset, along with interest on the related lease liability. Since under the former standard, operating lease charges were recognized as operating expenses as they were incurred, the adoption of IFRS 16 changes the timing of the recognition of these lease charges over the term of each lease. It also affects the classification of expenses in the consolidated statements of income. Principal payments on the lease liability are now presented as financing activities in the consolidated statements of cash flows, whereas under the previous standard these payments were presented as operating activities. A description of the new rules and details of the retroactive adjustments to comparative data are provided in Note 2 to Quebecor's condensed consolidated financial statements for the second quarter of 2019 and under "Changes in Accounting Policies" in Quebecor's Management Discussion and Analysis for the same period.

Table 2 presents segmented adjusted EBITDA for the last eight quarters, restated to reflect the retroactive application of IFRS 16.

Financial transactions

600 MHz spectrum auction

On April 10, 2019, Videotron purchased 10 blocks of low‑frequency spectrum in the 600 MHz band in ISED Canada's latest commercial mobile spectrum auction. The licences, covering the Eastern, Southern and Northern Québec, as well as the Outaouais and Eastern Ontario regions, were acquired for $255.8 million.

Board of Directors

The Right Honourable Brian Mulroney, Chairman of the Board of the Corporation, welcomes Manon Brouillette and Lise Croteau as Directors of Quebecor, bringing the proportion of women on the Board to 44%. The target of 40% women in 2020 has therefore been reached one year ahead of schedule.

Normal course issuer bid

On August 7, 2019, the Board of Directors of Quebecor authorized the renewal of its normal course issuer bid for a maximum of 1,000,000 Class A Multiple Voting Shares ("Class A Shares"), representing approximately 1.3% of issued and outstanding Class A Shares, and for a maximum of 4,000,000 Class B Subordinate Voting Shares ("Class B Shares"), representing approximately 2.2% of issued and outstanding Class B Shares as of August 1, 2019. The purchases can be made from August 15, 2019 to August 14, 2020 at prevailing market prices on the open market through the facilities of the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX"), in accordance with the requirements of that exchange, or other alternative trading systems. All repurchased shares will be cancelled. As of August 1, 2019, 77,246,744 Class A Shares and 178,670,253 Class B Shares were issued and outstanding.

The average daily trading volume of the Class A Shares and Class B Shares of the Corporation between February 1, 2019 and July 31, 2019 on the TSX was 813 Class A Shares and 634,171 Class B Shares. Consequently, the Corporation will be authorized to purchase a maximum of 1,000 Class A Shares and 158,542 Class B Shares during the same trading day, pursuant to its normal course issuer bid.

The Corporation believes that the repurchase of these shares under this normal course issuer bid is in the best interests of the Corporation and its shareholders.

Between August 15, 2018 and July 31, 2019, of the 1,000,000 Class A Shares and 7,800,000 Class B Shares it was authorized to repurchase under its previous normal course issuer bid, the Corporation repurchased no Class A Shares and 7,800,000 Class B Shares at a weighted average price of $27.3398 per share on the open market through the facilities of the TSX and alternative trading systems.

In the first half of 2019, the Corporation purchased and cancelled 1,319,600 Class B Shares for a total cash consideration of $39.5 million (4,909,900 Class B Shares for a total cash consideration of $118.0 million in the first half of 2018). The $31.7 million excess of the purchase price over the carrying value of the repurchased Class B Shares was recorded as an increase in the deficit ($108.6 million reduction of retained earnings in the first half of 2018). On February 1, 2019, the maximum number of Class B Shares that could be repurchased under the normal course issuer bid authorized on August 8, 2018 had been reached.

In the first half of 2019, 180,000 Class B Shares of Quebecor were issued upon exercise of stock options for a cash consideration of $2.7 million (100,000 Class B Shares for a cash consideration of $1.3 million in the first half of 2018). Following this transaction, the contributed surplus was increased by $3.0 million ($1.2 million in the first half of 2018) and the stock option plan liability was reduced by the same amount.

Dividend

On August 7, 2019, the Board of Directors of Quebecor declared a quarterly dividend of $0.1125 per share on its Class A Shares and Class B Shares, payable on September 17, 2019 to shareholders of record at the close of business on August 23, 2019. This dividend is designated an eligible dividend, as provided under subsection 89(14) of the Canadian Income Tax Act and its provincial counterpart.

DEFINITIONS

Adjusted EBITDA

In its analysis of operating results, the Corporation defines adjusted EBITDA, as reconciled to net income under the IFRS, as net income before depreciation and amortization, financial expenses, gain (loss) on valuation and translation of financial instruments, restructuring of operations and other items, income taxes and income from discontinued operations. Adjusted EBITDA as defined above is not a measure of results that is consistent with IFRS. It is not intended to be regarded as an alternative to other financial operating performance measures or to the statement of cash flows as a measure of liquidity. It should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. The Corporation uses adjusted EBITDA in order to assess the performance of its investment in Quebecor Media. The Corporation's management and Board of Directors use this measure in evaluating its consolidated results as well as the results of the Corporation's operating segments. This measure eliminates the significant level of impairment and depreciation/amortization of tangible and intangible assets and is unaffected by the capital structure or investment activities of the Corporation and its business segments. Adjusted EBITDA is also relevant because it is a significant component of the Corporation's annual incentive compensation programs. A limitation of this measure, however, is that it does not reflect the periodic costs of tangible and intangible assets used in generating revenues in the Corporation's segments. The Corporation also uses other measures that do reflect such costs, such as cash flows from segment operations and free cash flows from continuing operating activities of the Quebecor Media subsidiary. The Corporation's definition of adjusted EBITDA may not be the same as similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Table 4 provides a reconciliation of adjusted EBITDA to net income as disclosed in Quebecor's condensed consolidated financial statements.

Adjusted income from continuing operating activities

The Corporation defines adjusted income from continuing operating activities, as reconciled to net income attributable to shareholders under IFRS, as net income attributable to shareholders before gain (loss) on valuation and translation of financial instruments, restructuring of operations and other items, net of income tax related to adjustments and net income attributable to non‑controlling interest related to adjustments, and before the income from discontinued operations attributable to shareholders. Adjusted income from continuing operating activities, as defined above, is not a measure of results that is consistent with IFRS. It should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with IFRS. The Corporation uses adjusted income from continuing operating activities to analyze trends in the performance of its businesses. The above‑listed items are excluded from the calculation of this measure because they impair the comparability of financial results. Adjusted income from continuing operating activities is more representative for forecasting income. The Corporation's definition of adjusted income from continuing operating activities may not be identical to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. 

Table 6 provides a reconciliation of adjusted income from continuing operating activities to the net income attributable to shareholders' measure used in Quebecor's condensed consolidated financial statements.

KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Revenue‑generating unit

The Corporation uses revenue‑generating unit ("RGU"), an industry metric, as a key performance indicator. An RGU represents, as the case may be, subscriptions to the cable Internet, cable television and Club illico over‑the‑top video services ("Club illico"), and subscriber connections to the mobile telephony and cable telephony services. RGU is not a measurement that is consistent with IFRS and the Corporation's definition and calculation of RGU may not be the same as identically titled measurements reported by other companies or published by public authorities.

Average billing per unit

The Corporation uses ABPU, an industry metric, as a key performance indicator. This indicator is used to measure monthly average subscription billing per RGU. ABPU is not a measurement that is consistent with IFRS and the Corporation's definition and calculation of ABPU may not be the same as identically titled measurements reported by other companies.

Mobile ABPU is calculated by dividing the average subscription billing for mobile telephony services by the average number of mobile RGUs during the applicable period, and then dividing the resulting amount by the number of months in the applicable period.

Total ABPU is calculated by dividing the combined average subscription billing for cable Internet, cable television, Club illico, mobile telephony and cable telephony services by the total average number of RGUs from cable Internet, cable television, mobile telephony and cable telephony services during the applicable period, and then dividing the resulting amount by the number of months in the applicable period.
