Graham Holdings Company Reports Third Quarter Earnings

ARLINGTON, Va.--()--Graham Holdings Company (NYSE: GHC) today reported net income attributable to common shares of $39.6 million ($7.90 per share) for the third quarter of 2021, compared to $77.6 million ($15.22 per share) for the third quarter of 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic and measures taken to prevent its spread, such as travel restrictions, shelter in place orders and mandatory closures, significantly impacted the Company’s results for 2020 and the first nine months of 2021, largely from reduced demand for the Company’s products and services. This significant adverse impact is expected to continue for several of the Company’s businesses for the remainder of 2021. The Company’s management has taken a variety of measures to reduce costs and implement changes to business operations. The Company cannot predict the severity or duration of the pandemic, the extent to which demand for the Company’s products and services will be adversely affected or the degree to which financial and operating results will be negatively impacted.

The results for the third quarter of 2021 and 2020 were also affected by a number of items as described in the following paragraphs. Including these items, income before income taxes was $33.8 million for the third quarter of 2021, compared to $108.1 million for the third quarter of 2020. Excluding these items, income before income taxes was $37.0 million for the third quarter of 2021, compared to $61.1 million for the third quarter of 2020.

The Company reported operating income of $54.8 million for the first nine months of 2021, compared to $54.2 million for the first nine months of 2020.

Division Results

Education

Education division revenue totaled $336.0 million for the third quarter of 2021, up 11% from $302.5 million for the same period of 2020. Kaplan reported operating income of $9.9 million for the third quarter of 2021, compared to $3.3 million for the third quarter of 2020.

For the first nine months of 2021, education division revenue totaled $1,005.3 million, up 1% from revenue of $992.0 million for the same period of 2020. Kaplan reported operating income of $42.0 million for the first nine months of 2021, compared to $20.3 million for the first nine months of 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic adversely impacted Kaplan’s operating results beginning in February 2020 and continued through the first nine months of 2021.

Kaplan serves a significant number of students who travel to other countries to study a second language, prepare for licensure, or pursue a higher education degree. Government-imposed travel restrictions and school closures arising from COVID-19 had a negative impact on the ability of international students to travel and attend Kaplan’s programs, particularly Kaplan International’s Language programs. In addition, most licensing bodies and administrators of standardized exams postponed or canceled scheduled examinations due to COVID-19, resulting in a significant number of students deciding to defer their studies, negatively impacting Kaplan’s exam preparation education businesses. Overall, this is expected to continue to adversely impact Kaplan's revenues and operating results for the remainder of 2021, particularly at Kaplan International Languages (Languages).

To help mitigate the adverse impact of COVID-19, Kaplan implemented a number of significant cost reduction and restructuring activities across its businesses. Related to these restructuring activities, Kaplan recorded $0.1 million and $3.3 million in impairment of long-lived assets charges in the third quarter and first nine months of 2021, respectively. In the first nine months of 2020, Kaplan recorded $12.5 million in lease restructuring costs and in the third quarter and first nine months of 2020, Kaplan recorded $1.9 million and $3.1 million in severance restructuring costs, respectively. The lease restructuring costs included $3.4 million in accelerated depreciation expense in the first nine months of 2020. Kaplan also recorded $1.9 million and $11.9 million in lease impairment charges in connection with these restructuring plans in the third quarter and first nine months of 2020, respectively. These impairment charges included $0.2 million and $2.2 million in property, plant and equipment write-downs in the third quarter and first nine months, respectively. In the second and third quarters of 2020, the Company approved Separation Incentive Programs (SIP) that reduced the number of employees at all of Kaplan’s divisions, resulting in $7.8 million and $12.8 million in non-operating pension expense in the third quarter and first nine months of 2020, respectively. Kaplan management is continuing to monitor the ongoing COVID-19 disruptions and changes in its operating environment and may develop and implement further restructuring activities in 2021.

In 2020, Kaplan also accelerated the development and promotion of various online programs and solutions, rapidly transitioned most of its classroom-based programs online and addressed the individual needs of its students and partners, substantially reducing the disruption from COVID-19 while simultaneously adding important new product offerings and operating capabilities. Further, in the fourth quarter of 2020, Kaplan combined its three primary divisions based in the United States (Kaplan Test Prep, Kaplan Professional, and Kaplan Higher Education) into one business known as Kaplan North America (KNA). This combination is designed to enhance Kaplan’s competitiveness by better leveraging its diversified academic and professional portfolio, as well as its relationship with students, universities and businesses. For financial reporting purposes, KNA is reported in two segments: Higher Education and Supplemental Education (combining Kaplan Test Prep and Kaplan Professional (U.S.) into one reporting segment).

Kaplan International includes postsecondary education, professional training and language training businesses largely outside the United States. Kaplan International revenue increased 36% and 7% for the third quarter and first nine months of 2021, respectively (increase of 31% and decrease of 1%, respectively, on a constant currency basis). The increase in the third quarter is due largely to growth at Pathways, UK Professional and Languages. The increase for the first nine months is due largely to growth at UK Professional and Pathways, partially offset by declines at Languages. Kaplan International reported an operating loss of $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2021, compared to $13.8 million in the third quarter of 2020. Operating income increased to $23.3 million in the first nine months of 2021, compared to $21.3 million in the first nine months of 2020. The increase in operating results in the third quarter and first nine months of 2021 is due to a reduction in losses at Languages, and improved results at Pathways and UK Professional. Overall, Kaplan International’s operating results were negatively impacted by $5 million and $31 million in losses, respectively, incurred at Languages from continued significant COVID-19 disruptions for the third quarter and first nine months of 2021. In addition, Kaplan International recorded $3.9 million of lease restructuring costs and $2.2 million of severance restructuring costs at Languages in the first nine months of 2020; the lease restructuring costs included $1.5 million in accelerated depreciation expense. Due to the travel restrictions imposed as a result of COVID-19, Kaplan expects the disruption of its Languages business operating environment to continue for the remainder of 2021.

Higher Education includes the results of Kaplan as a service provider to higher education institutions. In the third quarter of 2021, Higher Education revenue increased 2% due to an increase in the Purdue Global fee recorded, resulting in increased operating income for the quarter. For the first nine months of 2021, Higher Education revenue was down 2% and operating income declined due to a reduction in the overall Purdue Global fee recorded during this period. For the third quarter and first nine months of 2021, Kaplan recorded a portion of the fee with Purdue Global based on an assessment of its collectability under the TOSA with a lower fee recognized in the first half of 2021 due to less cash available for distribution at June 30, 2021 due to timing of cash receipts at Purdue Global. The Company will continue to assess the collectability of the fee with Purdue Global on a quarterly basis to make a determination as to whether to record all or part of the fee in the future and whether to make adjustments to fee amounts recognized in earlier periods. For the first nine months of 2020, Kaplan Higher Education recorded $3.5 million in lease restructuring costs, of which $0.1 million was accelerated depreciation expense.

Supplemental Education includes Kaplan’s standardized test preparation programs and domestic professional and other continuing education businesses. Supplemental Education revenue declined 13% and 6%, respectively, for the third quarter and first nine months of 2021, due to additional revenue recognized in the third quarter of 2020 from product-life extensions made earlier in 2020 related to the postponement of various standardized test and certification exam dates due to COVID-19, offset in part by growth in securities and insurance programs. Operating results were down in the third quarter of 2021 due largely to additional revenue recognized in the third quarter of 2020 from product-life extensions made earlier in 2020 related to the postponement of various standardized test and certification exam dates due to COVID-19. Operating results improved in the first nine months of 2021 due to savings from restructuring activities implemented in 2020, $5.1 million of lease restructuring costs incurred in the second quarter of 2020 (of which $1.8 million was accelerated depreciation), and $0.9 million in severance restructuring costs incurred in the third quarter of 2020.

Kaplan corporate and other represents unallocated expenses of Kaplan, Inc.’s corporate office, other minor businesses and certain shared activities. Overall, Kaplan corporate and other expenses increased in the first nine months of 2021 due to normalization of compensation costs compared to 2020, which included salary abatements and reduced incentive compensation accruals.

Television Broadcasting

Revenue at the television broadcasting division decreased 5% to $126.5 million in the third quarter of 2021, from $133.8 million in the same period of 2020. The revenue decrease is due to a $24.1 million decline in political advertising revenue, partially offset by increased local and national advertising revenues, which were adversely impacted in 2020 by reduced demand related to the COVID-19 pandemic, increased revenue from summer Olympics-related advertising revenue at the Company’s NBC affiliates, and a $2.8 million increase in retransmission revenues. The increase in local and national advertising was from growth in the home products, health and fitness, and sports betting categories. In the third quarter of 2021 and 2020, the television broadcasting division recorded $0.1 million and $1.2 million, respectively, in reductions to operating expenses related to property, plant and equipment gains due to new equipment received at no cost in connection with the spectrum repacking mandate of the FCC. Operating income for the third quarter of 2021 decreased 23% to $40.6 million, from $52.7 million in the same period of 2020, due to reduced revenues and higher network fees.

Revenue at the television broadcasting division increased 3% to $360.1 million in the first nine months of 2021, from $350.0 million in the same period of 2020. The revenue increase is due to increased local and national advertising revenues, which were adversely impacted in 2020 by reduced demand related to the COVID-19 pandemic, an $8.7 million increase in retransmission revenues, and increased revenue from summer Olympics-related advertising revenue at the Company’s NBC affiliates, partially offset by a $38.1 million decline in political advertising revenue. The increase in local and national advertising was from growth in the home products, health and fitness, and sports betting categories. In the first nine months of 2021 and 2020, the television broadcasting division recorded $0.9 million and $2.5 million, respectively, in reductions to operating expenses related to property, plant and equipment gains due to new equipment received at no cost in connection with the spectrum repacking mandate of the FCC. Operating income for the first nine months of 2021 decreased 3% to $109.1 million, from $112.1 million in the same period of 2020, due to higher network fees.

Manufacturing

Manufacturing includes four businesses: Hoover, a supplier of pressure impregnated kiln-dried lumber and plywood products for fire retardant and preservative applications; Dekko, a manufacturer of electrical workspace solutions, architectural lighting and electrical components and assemblies; Joyce/Dayton, a manufacturer of screw jacks and other linear motion systems; and Forney, a global supplier of products and systems that control and monitor combustion processes in electric utility and industrial applications.

Manufacturing revenues decreased 6% in the third quarter of 2021, due primarily to a reduction in revenues at Hoover from lower wood prices during the quarter and lower product demand. Manufacturing revenue increased 18% in the first nine months of 2021, due primarily to significantly increased revenues at Hoover from substantially higher wood prices in 2021 and improved product demand, partially offset by reduced revenues at Dekko from lower product demand, particularly in the commercial office electrical products and hospitality sectors. Wood prices began to decline in June 2021 and this trend has continued through September 2021, which resulted in significant losses on inventory sales at Hoover in the third quarter of 2021. For the first nine months of 2021, Hoover’s operating results reflect overall gains on inventory sales. Manufacturing operating results declined in the third quarter of 2021 due to a significant loss at Hoover from substantial losses on inventory sales, and a $26.7 million goodwill impairment charge recorded at Dekko, due to continued weakness in demand for certain Dekko products related to the COVID-19 pandemic, increases in labor and commodity costs and related supply chain challenges. Manufacturing operating results declined in the first nine months of 2021 due primarily to the Dekko goodwill impairment charge.

In the second quarter of 2021, Dekko announced a plan to relocate its manufacturing operations in Shelton, CT to other Dekko manufacturing facilities. In connection with this activity, Dekko is in the process of implementing a SIP for the affected employees, resulting in $1.1 million in non-operating SIP expense recorded in the second quarter of 2021, to be funded by the assets of the Company's pension plan.

Healthcare

The Graham Healthcare Group (GHG) provides home health and hospice services in three states. GHG provides other healthcare services, including nursing care and prescription services for patients receiving in-home infusion treatments through its 75% interest in CSI Pharmacy Holdings Company, LLC (CSI). Healthcare revenues increased 8% and 9% for the third quarter and first nine months of 2021, respectively, largely due to growth at CSI and home health services. The decline in GHG operating results in the third quarter of 2021 was primarily due to lower patient census for hospice services and increased business development costs. The increase in GHG operating results in the first nine months of 2021 is due to improved results from home health services and CSI, offset by a decline in results from hospice services.

In the second quarter of 2020, GHG received $7.4 million from the Federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) Provider Relief Fund. GHG did not apply for these funds; they were disbursed to GHG as a Medicare provider under the CARES Act. Under the Department of Health and Human Services guidelines, these funds may be used to offset revenue reductions and expenses incurred in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic. Of this amount, GHG recorded $5.5 million and $0.2 million in revenue in the second and third quarters of 2020, respectively, to partially offset the impact of revenue reductions due to the COVID-19 pandemic from the curtailment of elective procedures by health systems and other factors. The remaining amount of $1.7 million was recorded as a credit to operating costs in the second quarter of 2020 to partially offset the impact of costs incurred to procure personal protective equipment for GHG employees and other COVID-19 related costs.

The Company also holds interests in four home health and hospice joint ventures managed by GHG, whose results are included in equity in earnings of affiliates in the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Operations. The Company recorded equity in earnings of $2.5 million and $2.8 million for the third quarter of 2021 and 2020, respectively, from these joint ventures. The Company recorded equity in earnings of $8.0 million and $8.3 million for the first nine months of 2021 and 2020, respectively, from these joint ventures.

Automotive

Automotive includes three automotive dealerships in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area: Lexus of Rockville, Honda of Tysons Corner, and Ourisman Jeep of Bethesda. Revenues for the third quarter and first nine months of 2021 increased 10% and 33%, respectively, due to sales growth at each of the three dealerships, due partly to significantly reduced demand for sales and service in the first half of 2020 at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, and higher average new and used car selling prices as a result of strong consumer demand and inventory shortages related to supply chain disruptions and production delays at vehicle manufacturers. In the first quarter of 2020, the Company’s automotive dealerships recorded a $6.7 million intangible asset impairment charge as a result of the pandemic and the related recessionary conditions. Operating earnings for the third quarter and first nine months of 2021 improved significantly from the prior year due to increased sales and margins, in addition to the impairment charge recorded in the first quarter of 2020.

Other Businesses

Clyde’s Restaurant Group

Clyde’s Restaurant Group (CRG) owns and operates eleven restaurants and entertainment venues in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, including Old Ebbitt Grill and The Hamilton. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, CRG temporarily closed all of its restaurants and venues in mid-March 2020 through mid-June 2020, pursuant to government orders, maintaining limited operations for outdoor dining, delivery and pickup. CRG recorded a $9.7 million goodwill and intangible assets impairment charge in the first quarter of 2020. In June 2020, CRG made the decision to close its restaurant and entertainment venue in Columbia, MD effective July 19, 2020, resulting in accelerated depreciation of property, plant and equipment totaling $2.8 million in the second quarter of 2020; an additional $2.8 million in accelerated depreciation was recorded in the third quarter of 2020. In December 2020, CRG temporarily closed its restaurant dining rooms in Maryland and the District of Columbia for the second time, reopening again for limited indoor dining service in mid-February 2021. Dining restrictions from government orders were substantially lifted for all of CRG’s operations by the end of the second quarter of 2021.

Overall, CRG incurred operating losses in each of the third quarters and first nine months of 2021 and 2020 due to limited revenues and costs incurred to maintain its facilities and support its employees; however, the losses incurred in 2021 were significantly lower than the losses incurred in 2020. While CRG revenues have been adversely impacted as a result of the pandemic, such revenues improved steadily in each of the first three quarters of 2021. CRG continues to develop and implement initiatives to increase sales and reduce costs to mitigate the impact of COVID-19.

Framebridge

On May 15, 2020, the Company acquired Framebridge, Inc., a custom framing service company, headquartered in Washington, DC, with two retail locations in the DC metropolitan area and a manufacturing facility in Richmond, KY. At the end of the third quarter of 2021, Framebridge had twelve retail locations in the Washington, DC, New York City, Atlanta, GA, Philadelphia, PA, Boston, MA and Chicago, IL areas and three manufacturing facilities in Kentucky and New Jersey. Framebridge expects to open four additional stores in the Chicago, IL and New York City areas in the fourth quarter of 2021, with plans for additional expansion in 2022. Framebridge revenues for the third quarter and first nine months of 2021 increased from the prior year. Framebridge is an investment stage business and reported significant operating losses in the first nine months of 2021.

Code3

Code3 is a performance marketing agency focused on driving performance for brands through three core elements of digital success: media, creative and commerce. Code 3 revenue was up in the third quarter of 2021, due to strong growth in creative and commerce revenues. Code 3 revenue was down in the first nine months of 2021, due to overall sluggish marketing spending by some advertising clients, offset by strong growth in creative and commerce revenues. Code3 reported operating losses in the first nine months of 2021 and 2020. For the third quarter of 2021, however, Code 3 reported operating income due largely to revenue growth. In the second quarter of 2021, Code 3 recorded a $1.6 million lease impairment charge (including $0.4 million in property, plant and equipment write-downs). In the second quarter of 2020, Code3 recorded a $1.5 million lease impairment charge (including $0.1 million in property, plant and equipment write-downs) in connection with a restructuring plan that included other cost reduction initiatives. These initiatives included the approval of a SIP that reduced the number of employees at Code3, resulting in $1.0 million in non-operating pension expense in the second quarter of 2020.

Leaf Group

On June 14, 2021, the Company closed on the acquisition of all outstanding shares of common stock of Leaf Group Ltd. (Leaf) at $8.50 per share in an all cash transaction valued at approximately $322 million. Leaf Group, headquartered in Santa Monica, CA, is a consumer internet company that builds enduring, creator-driven brands that reach passionate audiences in large and growing lifestyle categories, including fitness and wellness (Well+Good, Livestrong.com and MyPlate App), and home, art and design (Saatchi Art, Society6 and Hunker).

The Leaf operating results for the period June 14, 2021 to September 30, 2021 are included in other businesses. Leaf has three major operating divisions: Society6 Group and Saatchi Art Group (Marketplace businesses) and the Media Group. For the third quarter of 2021, revenue for Society6 Group declined, as Society6 Group reported rapid growth in the third quarter of 2020, largely related to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Media Group and Saatchi Art Group each reported revenue growth in the third quarter of 2021. Overall, Leaf reported an operating loss for the third quarter of 2021.

Megaphone

Megaphone was sold by the Company to Spotify in December 2020.

Other

Other businesses also include Slate and Foreign Policy, which publish online and print magazines and websites; and four investment stage businesses, CyberVista, Decile and Pinna, as well as City Cast, a local daily podcast business that began operations in 2021. All of these businesses reported revenue increases in the first nine months of 2021. Losses from each of these six businesses in the first nine months of 2021 adversely affected operating results.

Overall, for the third quarter of 2021, operating revenues for other businesses increased due largely to the Leaf acquisition and increases at CRG, partially offset by declines due to the sale of Megaphone in December 2020. For the first nine months of 2021, operating revenues for other businesses increased due largely to increases from the Framebridge and Leaf acquisitions and increases at CRG, partially offset due to the sale of Megaphone in December 2020. Operating results improved in the first nine months of 2021 primarily due to improvements at CRG, in addition to the goodwill and other long-lived asset impairment charges recorded in the first quarter of 2020 at CRG, partially offset by losses at Framebridge and Leaf.

Corporate Office

Corporate office includes the expenses of the Company’s corporate office and certain continuing obligations related to prior business dispositions. Corporate office expenses increased in the first nine months of 2021 due primarily to higher compensation costs, offset by a credit related to the fair value change in contingent consideration related to the Framebridge acquisition.

(Benefit from) Provision for Income Taxes

The Company’s effective tax rate for the first nine months of 2021 and 2020 was 22.6% and 29.6%, respectively. The Company’s effective tax rate for 2021 was favorably impacted by a $15.7 million deferred tax adjustment arising from a change in the estimated deferred state income tax rate attributable to the apportionment formula used in the calculation of deferred taxes related to the Company’s pension and other postretirement plans.

The calculation of diluted earnings per share for the third quarter and first nine months of 2021 was based on 4,976,998 and 4,980,056 weighted average shares outstanding, respectively, compared to 5,071,998 and 5,191,556, respectively, for the third quarter and first nine months of 2020.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION
GRAHAM HOLDINGS COMPANY
(Unaudited)

In addition to the results reported in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (GAAP) included in this press release, the Company has provided information regarding Income before income taxes, excluding certain items described below, reconciled to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Management believes that these non-GAAP measures, when read in conjunction with the Company’s GAAP financials, provide useful information to investors by offering:

  • the ability to make meaningful period-to-period comparisons of the Company’s ongoing results;
  • the ability to identify trends in the Company’s underlying business; and
  • a better understanding of how management plans and measures the Company’s underlying business.

The Company has provided this non-GAAP information on a pre-income tax basis in order to facilitate a meaningful period-to-period comparison of income in light of the difference in applicable income tax rates for the third quarter and first nine months of 2021 and the third quarter and first nine months of 2020.

Income before income taxes, excluding certain items, should not be considered substitutes or alternatives to computations calculated in accordance with and required by GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures should be read only in conjunction with financial information presented on a GAAP basis. The following table reconciles the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures:
