Cambium Learning Group Reports Second Quarter 2015 Financial Results

20:00 EDT 12 Aug 2015 | Globe Newswire

Bookings from Technology-Enabled Products on Track for Full Year Double-Digit Growth

Learning A-Z Segment First Half Bookings Increased 17% and Adjusted EBITDA Increased 27%

Cash Income (Loss) Improves as Technology-Enabled Products and Lower Costs Offset Higher CapEx Investments

DALLAS, Aug. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cambium Learning® Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:ABCD) (the “Company”), a leading educational solutions and services company committed to helping all students reach their full potential, announced today financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2015.

“We continued to make good progress on our strategic initiatives during the second quarter and we are on track for our full year goals,” said John Campbell, chief executive officer of Cambium Learning Group, Inc. “Bookings grew 3% in the first half of the year, and Learning A-Z led the way with growth of 17%.  Adjusted EBITDA increased 38% in the first half of the year and Cash Income improved due to a higher portion of mix from technology-enabled products, which totaled 54% in the first half 2015 versus 49% in first half 2014, and the lower cost base from last year’s right-sizing.  With third quarter Bookings trending up 8% in July versus last year, we look forward to a strong seasonal build and a terrific upcoming school year helping students reach their full potential.”

Because Cambium Learning Group’s business is highly seasonal, management measures results primarily on a year-to-date basis. For the six months ended June 30, 2015, the Company reported improvements over prior year in Bookings, GAAP net revenues, Adjusted EBITDA and Cash Income. 

 Three Months Ended June 30,  Six Months Ended June 30, 
(in millions)2015  2014  $ Change  2015  2014  $ Change 
GAAP net revenues$37.5  $36.2  $1.2  $68.9  $67.3  $1.6 
GAAP net income (loss) 2.0   (1.3)  3.3   (0.5)  (7.9)  7.4 
EBITDA 11.1   8.6   2.5   17.4   12.0   5.4 
Adjusted EBITDA 11.2   9.1   2.1   17.6   12.7   4.8 
                        
Bookings$31.8  $32.7  $(0.9) $54.0  $52.5  $1.4 
Cash income 0.5   0.5      (6.8)  (9.2)  2.4 

As part of the business’ seasonality, Bookings historically peak during the third quarter, which represents by far the preponderance of Bookings, revenue, and income each year. For example, the first and second quarters combined represented approximately 35% of full year 2014 Bookings, and the Company has historically reported a net loss and negative Cash Income for the first half of the year. 

First Half 2015 Financial Highlights

  • GAAP net revenues for the first half of 2015 increased by 2% to $68.9 million compared with $67.3 million in 2014.  GAAP net revenues by segment for the six months ended June 30, 2015, and the change from the same period of 2014, were as follows: 
    • Learning A–Z—$26.2 million, increased $5.5 million or 26%
    • Voyager Sopris Learning—$33.0 million, decreased ($4.6) million or (12%)
    • ExploreLearning®—$9.7 million, increased $0.7 million or 8%
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $17.6 million, increasing $4.8 million from $12.7 million in 2014. The Company continues to see EBITDA improvement attributable to revenue favorability, increasing contributions from the Company’s higher margin technology-enabled products, and lower costs in the Voyager Sopris Learning segment attributable to last year’s actions to right-size cost structure in slower-growing or declining areas of the Company.
  • Cash Income was ($6.8) million, $2.4 million better than the ($9.2) million reported in the first half of 2014.  The benefits of higher Bookings and improving margins were partially offset by higher capital expenditures.  These capital expenditures reflect planned investments in product development and totaled $9.8 million in the first half of 2015 versus $8.4 million in the first half of 2014. Excluding capital expenditures, cash income increased $3.9 million to a profit for the 2015 six months compared to the 2014 six month loss.
  • Cash Income for Learning A-Z was flat in the first half of 2015 versus the first half of 2014, with higher Bookings offset by planned investments in product development, sales and marketing.  While the Company expects margins to be lower in 2015 versus 2014 as a result of these investments, Cash Income dollars are expected to be higher in 2015 than 2014 due to the segment’s expected Bookings growth.
  • The Company had cash and cash equivalents of $16.9 million at June 30, 2015. During the six months ended June 30, 2015, cash used by operations was $6.8 million, cash used in investing activities was $10.2 million, and cash used in financing activities was $0.5 million.

Second Quarter 2015 Financial Highlights

  • Bookings for the second quarter of 2015 decreased by 3% to $31.8 million compared with $32.7 million in the second quarter of 2014.  The quarter’s trend is in line with full-year expectations given that the Company experienced accelerated pacing in the first quarter and that the third quarter is off to a strong start.
  • GAAP net revenues for the second quarter of 2015 increased by 3% to $37.5 million compared with $36.2 million in 2014.  GAAP net revenues by segment for the three months ended June 30, 2015, and the change from the same period of 2014, were: 
    • Learning A–Z—$13.3 million, increased $2.7 million or 26%
    • Voyager Sopris Learning—$19.3 million, decreased ($1.9) million or (9%)
    • ExploreLearning®—$4.9 million, increased $0.4 million or 8%
  • Adjusted EBITDA was $11.2 million, increasing $2.1 million from $9.1 million in 2014. The Company continues to see EBITDA improvement attributable to revenue favorability, increasing contributions from the Company’s higher margin technology-enabled products, and lower costs in the Voyager Sopris Learning segment attributable to last year’s actions to right-size the cost structure in slower-growing or declining areas of the Company.
  • Cash Income was $0.5 million, flat with the 2014 second quarter.  The benefits of improving margins were offset by the Bookings decline and higher capital expenditures.  Capital expenditures totaled $5.0 million in the second quarter of 2015 versus $4.4 million in the second quarter of 2014.  Excluding capital expenditures, cash income increased 14% compared to the 2014 second quarter.

  • Bookings increased 3% from the first half of 2014. By segment:
    • Learning A-Z reported a 17% increase over prior year, with continued strong growth in its Raz-Kids.com and Headsprout® solutions.  Both are student-centric solutions, and the growth demonstrates strong demand for products that put technology directly into students’ hands.  Management’s full-year expectations for strong double-digit growth at Learning A-Z remain unchanged.
    • Voyager Sopris Learning reported a 4% decrease for the first half of 2015 versus prior year, with Bookings growth from newer technology-enabled solutions such as LANGUAGE! ® Live and Kurzweil’s firefly offset by the expected decline of older legacy products.  Voyager Sopris Learning is also experiencing success with its recently expanded and rereleased Step Up to Writing® program as school districts require quality programs to meet rigorous writing assessments.  Management’s full-year expectations that Bookings will decline at lower rates than in the prior year remain unchanged.
    • ExploreLearning experienced a 1% increase over prior year — this segment’s order pacing can fluctuate from quarter to quarter due to large deals and renewal timing.  Full-year expectations for double-digit growth at ExploreLearning remain unchanged.
    • Bookings for technology-enabled products represented 54% of Bookings for the first half of 2015 and grew 15% compared to the first half of 2014.

The Company’s technology-enabled products continue to receive industry recognition.  Learning A-Z recently received two prestigious awards for the leveled content provided in its flagship reading product, Reading A-Z, that supports English language learners (ELLs).  In addition to the CODiE™ award received in May from the Software Information and Industry Association (SIIA) for “Best ELL/World Language Acquisition Instructional Solution,” Learning A-Z also garnered a 2015 AAP REVERE Award for “Supplemental Resources, Resources for ELL.”

2015 Outlook

 “With a solid first half performance behind us, Cambium Learning Group is focused on strong execution during the seasonally important third quarter, which is starting strong. Our strategic priorities remain to continue to reinvest cash generated by legacy products in high-return, technology-enabled opportunities through our development, marketing, and sales initiatives. Today’s educators face challenges as never before, and Cambium Learning is uniquely positioned to grow our technology-enabled solutions that are specifically designed to combat these challenges, among districts, teachers and learners. Our aim is to help every learner reach his or her full potential and to continue to transform our revenue mix toward higher-margin subscription solutions and our business model toward improved economics and cash flow by driving this revenue stream on a more efficient cost base. We are excited about the new school year, and our 2015 expectations are unchanged.”

Company-wide Bookings are expected to be up slightly in 2015 compared to 2014, with orders of technology-enabled products potentially expanding to 70% or more of the 2015 total.  By segment, the Company expects:

  • Continued strong double-digit Bookings growth in Learning A-Z
  • Double-digit Bookings growth in ExploreLearning
  • Continued transformation of Voyager Sopris Learning, including the Kurzweil Education brand, where Bookings are expected to decline but at a lower percentage than the 20% experienced in 2014.  Provided the Company’s strategies for Voyager Sopris Learning continue to progress on plan, this segment could return to growth in 2016.  The Company continues to pursue its strategic objectives to build a platform for growth in 2016.

Conference Call

Management will conduct a conference call at 9 a.m. EDT today to discuss its financial results.  Participants are encouraged to listen to the presentation via a live web broadcast at www.cambiumlearning.com on the Investor Relations section.  In addition, a live dial-in is available at 855.899.0417 or 720.634.2941, passcode #96327027.

A replay will be available at 855.859.2056 or 404.537.3406, passcode #96327027, until August 14, 2015.  The webcast also will be archived on the Company’s Investor Relations pages.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Bookings, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Cash Income are not prepared in accordance with GAAP and may be different from similarly named, non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies.  Non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered a substitute for, or superior to, measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP. The Company believes that these non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors because they reflect the underlying performance of the ongoing operations of the Company and provide investors with a view of the Company’s operations from management’s perspective. Adjusted EBITDA and Cash Income remove significant purchase accounting, non-operational, or certain non-cash items from earnings. The Company uses Bookings, Adjusted EBITDA and Cash Income to monitor and evaluate the operating performance of the Company and as the basis to set and measure progress toward performance targets, which directly affect compensation for employees and executives. The Company generally uses these non-GAAP measures as measures of operating performance and not as measures of the Company’s liquidity. The Company’s presentation of Bookings, EBITDA, Adjusted EBITDA, and Cash Income should not be construed as an indication that our future results will be unaffected by unusual, non-operational, or non-cash items.
