Commenting on the results, Julio Bruno, CEO of Time Out Group plc, said:

 

"We opened an exciting new chapter for Time Out when we became a listed company in June and presented an ambitious growth strategy for this iconic brand. In the first six months of 2016 we traded well and in line with our expectations, delivering material revenue increases across key growth areas. We made strong progress against our strategy as we increasingly monetise our audience, develop e-commerce and provide unique advertising opportunities to businesses.

 

I'm also very pleased with the excellent results for Time Out Market Lisbon. It has been a successful and profitable proof of the format and we can't wait to roll it out to other cities.

 

The second half of the financial year has begun well, with good year-on-year growth as we continue to inspire people to discover, book and share the very best of the world's cities."

†O&O is the Time Out 'owned and operated' business operations in 65 cities across 14 countries; this does not include international licencing arrangements in a further 43 cities across 25 countries. Average for six months.

 

Audience development

Time Out is one of the leading brands to inform and inspire users through the provision of curated content about how to enjoy food, drink, music, theatre, art, style, travel and entertainment. The Group's established brand and high brand awareness are key drivers of Time Out's significant audience reach (including its international licensing arrangements).

 

In the last month of the six month reporting period, Time Out achieved a global monthly audience reach of 136.6 million, growing 33% YoY. During the full six month period, the audience of the Group's owned and operated (O&O) sites grew by 34%. Website traffic for this period increased by 7% YoY and followers on social media grew by 46% YoY in June. Across O&O city websites, particularly strong growth was seen in the US sites driven by increased focus on content in the 'Things To Do' section, with a mix of evergreen content and blog content that continues to be distributed via social media. The proportion of visits through mobile and tablet device now exceeds 59%.

Advertising

Time Out has established long-term, direct relationships with brands and local businesses and uses a number of solution based advertising platforms, programmatic platforms and other creative channels, including native advertising and experiential advertising, to generate advertising revenue.

 

Digital advertising revenues grew 24% YoY with strong growth in the US on the back of improved operational performance. The benefit of being able to provide an enhanced nationwide advertising presence has helped to further develop direct relationships with major agencies.  In line with other media companies' commentary, the UK trading environment has been more challenging, as programmatic trading has increased, but with pleasing growth in visitors to the UK website. Our international advertising partners are increasingly seeking cross-platform solutions and we are confident that we will be able to deliver against this trend with our multi-media advertising solution strategy.

 

Overall Group print advertising declined 2% over the period, as expected. Within this figure a decline in revenue in the UK was offset by a stronger performance in other geographies including the US, as well as revenue from our Portuguese franchise, which was acquired in November 2015.

 

E-commerce

Time Out's e-commerce platform (currently available in London, Paris, New York, Chicago and Los Angeles), integrates third party booking engines allowing users to complete a booking or transaction across a broad range of categories including theatre, hotels, music, and event tickets, restaurant table reservations, offers, exclusive membership and attractions.

 

E-commerce revenue grew 49% YoY. This was driven by particularly strong performance from the Live Events arranged and sold by the Group; an area which continues to expand across cities in both the US and London, with strong revenue growth, including sponsorship income in the US. Elsewhere, a strong performance from affiliate sales in London and the launch of new categories in New York increased overall transactions by 13% compared to 2015.

 

The Group has entered into new affiliate agreements with See Tickets (May 2016) in London and Viator globally (August 2016). The partnership with See Tickets gives the Group access to inventory from a wider range of events and theatres while the partnership entered into with Viator expands access to attractions for customers across O&O sites. The performance of the Group's established offers business in London has seen slower growth but advanced plans are in place to focus product development on improving the visibility and distribution of offers.

 

Premium Profiles

Premium Profiles have been developed in London, Paris and New York to offer businesses opportunities to increase their exposure to Time Out's audience by purchasing additional advertising features on the Group's platform for a monthly subscription fee.

 

During the first half of the year, revenues in Premium Profiles grew by 54% and the number of active listers increased by 35%. The Group is looking forward to further strengthening the existing offering in London, Paris and New York in the second half of the year.

 

International

In addition to its owned and operated business operations in 65 cities across 14 countries, the Group has a presence in a further 43 cities across 25 countries through its international licensing arrangements whereby rights are granted to third parties to publish print magazines and produce digital content under the Time Out brand, generating revenue through the payment of fees and royalties by third party licensees.

 

In the first half of the year, revenue from franchisees was down YoY driven by the consolidation of our Portuguese franchise in November 2015 and more challenging economic conditions for our franchisees in Russia, Australia and Israel.

 

Digital product development

As outlined at the time of IPO, planned investment will be made in technology and product to expand the Group's team of technical employees, enhance the effectiveness of e-commerce and drive expansion into new verticals. Throughout the last six months, investment has been made in reforming and developing the product and technology teams. New staff have been hired and particular skills in mapping and the travel vertical have been brought into the business through the acquisition of HallStreet.com in April 2016.

 

The Group is now implementing its plan to put in place the people and resources to effect its plan to monetise and grow its customer base. As such, it is growing its headcount in the key areas of engineering and product development, creative solutions, Premium Profiles and e-commerce.

 

Time Out Market

Time Out Market is a physical, curated platform which brings together a city's best restaurants, food shops, and culture under one roof. At the time of the IPO, the Group acquired the Time Out Market business comprising the market in Lisbon and a central team who are developing the format for expansion into further cities worldwide.

 

The performance of the market in Lisbon has been very encouraging with record numbers of visitors and top ratings on review sites, contributing to a doubling in revenues YoY. The Lisbon market's strong revenue growth is ahead of expectations and has been profitable in each month of 2016.

 

In line with our stated growth strategy, as set out at the time of IPO, the intention is to expand this format internationally to other cities. Plans for new locations are in advanced discussions in London and Porto, and are progressing well in New York and Miami. The Group continues to find a high level of interest in the concept from landlords in many other cities.

 

Initial Public Offering

On 14 June the Company was admitted to trading on AIM and raised net proceeds of approximately £84m from the placing of 60 million shares with institutional investors.  The capital raise was undertaken to provide capital for the Group's next stage of development, further enhance the Group's profile and brand recognition with consumers and businesses, roll out the Time Out Market format and assist the recruitment, retention and incentivisation of senior management and employees at all levels of the Group.

 

To ensure that the Group is able to comply with its obligations as a listed company, additional resource has been employed in the head office, together with the engagement of suitable advisers and the recruitment of strong non-executive Board directors.

 

Financial performance

On admission to trading on AIM in June 2016, the Group raised gross funds of £90 million, which after fees and debt repayment generated net funds to the Company of £59 million.  As part of the admission process, the Group acquired Time Out Market Limited, the holding company of the Time Out Market in Lisbon and a 41.5% stake in Flypay, a provider of mobile technology based ordering and payment solutions to restaurants and venues.

 

Revenue

Reported Group revenue for the first six months has increased by 12% from £13.5m to £15.1m primarily through organic growth aided by acquisitions and favourable foreign exchange movement. Growth on a constant currency basis was 10%. Time Out Market Limited was acquired by the Group on 14 June 2016 and therefore only 17 days of trading are included in the reported figures. Taking into account a full six months of Time Out Market in 2016, Group revenue grew by 16%.

 

Gross margin

The overall gross margin of the Group rose by one percentage point YoY to 58.1%. This was aided by an improvement in our revenue mix, with a greater proportionate contribution of the Group's higher margin digital revenues versus a smaller contribution from our lower margin print revenue streams.

 

Operating expenditure

Group operating expenditure, before exceptional costs, share based payments, depreciation and amortisation, was £13.2m (2015: £13.4m). Savings in UK and USA operations of in excess of £1m were partially offset by higher Group management costs, the costs of the new business operations including Portugal, HallStreet.com and Time Out Market.

 

Adjusted EBITDA

The Group shows the adjusted EBITDA position on the face of the income statement. This represents the profit or loss before interest, taxation, depreciation, amortisation, share based payments and one-off exceptional items.

 

Adjusted EBITDA loss for the period was £4.4m (2015: £5.6m loss) an improvement of £1.2m due to profitable organic revenue growth and acquisitions. Excluding the results of Time Out Market for the 17 days of operation, the Group adjusted EBITDA loss improved by 22%.

 

For the six months to 30 June 2016, Time Out Market Lisbon had an adjusted EBITDA of £0.5m (2015: £Nil). After the costs of the central team established in early 2016, the Time Out Market division had an adjusted EBITDA loss of £0.4m (2015: £Nil). 

 

The Group's adjusted EBITDA loss including on a proforma basis a full six months of Time Out Market was £4.8m (2015: £5.6m loss).

 

Exceptional costs

One off exceptional costs include £0.9m of IPO advisory costs not directly related to the raising of equity finance (2015: £Nil), £0.4m of employee termination costs (2015: £Nil) and £0.1m of legal fees related to acquisitions (2015: £Nil).

 

Operating loss

The operating loss for the period was £7.3m (2015: £7.4m including depreciation of £0.2m (2015: £0.2m) and amortisation of intangible assets of £1.3m (2015: £1.3m).

 

The amortisation of intangible assets included £0.4m (2015: £0.4m) relating to acquired intangible assets. Other intangible asset amortisation, primarily amortisation of software both acquired and internally developed, was £0.9m (2015: £0.9m).

 

Net finance costs

Net finance costs, mainly comprising interest accrued on shareholder debt, decreased by £0.1m to £1.1m (2015: £1.2m) as a result of a foreign exchange gain on foreign currency cash held at the period end.  The shareholder debt was repaid from the IPO proceeds before the half year end.

 

Foreign exchange

The revenues and costs of Group entities reporting in dollars have been consolidated in these financial statements at an average exchange rate of $1.43 (2015: $1.52). The operations reporting in euros have been consolidated at a rate of €1.28 (2015: €1.37). For the 2016 half year the net loss of the dollar reporting entities was approximately $2m. Entities reporting in euros were close to break even when a full six months trading of Time Out Market in Lisbon is considered. With a fall in the value of sterling since 23 June 2016 the Group would see an increase in revenues and costs when converted into sterling, with an overall impact to annual EBITDA of £0.2m for a 10 cent move in the US$ exchange rate.

 

Associates

As part of the admission process, the Group acquired an additional 41.5% shareholding in Flypay Limited, bringing the total investment to 41.6%.  Flypay is a mobile technology platform providing solutions for ordering and payment within the hospitality sector.  The shareholding is accounted for as an associate and the Group's share of Flypay's loss for the period since acquisition is included as 'Share of associate's loss' in the income statement.

IPO proceeds

The IPO raised gross proceeds of £90 million; £4.6m of related costs were paid in the period. Of the remaining proceeds, £24.9m was used to pay down existing shareholder borrowings. Total fees and costs of the IPO are expected to be £6.3m.

Acquisitions and business combinations

The Group undertook two business combinations in the period, acquiring the trade and assets of HallStreet.com, Barcelona SL in March 2016 and an additional 76.5% of the ordinary share capital of Time Out Market Limited as part of the admission process.

 

Cash consideration for HallStreet.com was £0.3m with no cash acquired with the business.  Time Out Market was acquired for shares and had cash at acquisition of £0.8m resulting in net cash inflow from acquisitions of £0.5m. Time Out Market had third party debt of £3.4m at the time of acquisition.

 

The half year results include the results of these business combinations from the date of acquisition.

 

Post balance sheet events

On 6 July 2016, Time Out Market acquired a further 20.2% shareholding in MC-Mercados da Capital, LDA, the operator of the Lisbon Time Out Market, in cash taking their direct shareholding to 95.3% and the Group's indirect shareholding to 81%.  Cash consideration of £1.3m was paid.

 

Outlook

Execution of the business strategy outlined at the time of our IPO in June 2016 remains on track, with our online activities continuing to expand at very significant rates driven by good growth in digital advertising and e-commerce. Our Time Out Market business is developing into a substantial business success in its own right, to be further supplemented in the future by other cities.  At the Group level, the second half of the financial year has begun well, with the business trading in line with our expectations, showing good YoY top line growth.

1. Basis of preparation

 

The unaudited interim consolidated financial information for the six months ended 30 June 2016 has been prepared following the recognition and measurement principles of IFRS as adopted by the European Union and in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34 Interim Financial Reporting ('IAS 34').  The interim consolidated financial information does not include all the information and disclosures required in the annual financial information, and should be read in conjunction with the audited statutory financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2015 and the Admission Document dated 9 June 2016.

 

The condensed interim financial information contained in this interim statement does not constitute financial statements as defined by section 434(3) of the Companies Act 2006.  The condensed interim financial information has not been audited.  The financial information for the year ended 31 December 2015 is derived from the audited financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2015, which were unqualified and did not contain any statement under section 498(2) or 498(3) of the Companies Act 2006.  Statutory accounts for Time Out Group plc for the year ended 31 December 2015 have been delivered to the Registrar of Companies.  The comparative financial information for the period ended 30 June 2015 does not constitute statutory accounts for that period.

 

The condensed interim financial information for the six-month period has been prepared on a going concern basis.  The statements were approved by the Board on 26 September 2016.

 

 

2. Accounting policies

 

There have been no significant new standards made effective from 1 January 2016, therefore the same accounting policies and methods of computation are followed in these condensed set of financial statements as applied in the Group's latest annual audited financial statements and in the Admission Document dated 9 June 2016.

 

New accounting policies adopted as a result of the business combinations effected in the period are as follows:

 

Associates

An associate is an undertaking over which the Group exercises significant influence, usually from 20%-50% of the equity voting rights, in respect of the financial and operating policy. The Group accounts for its interests in associates using the equity method. Under the equity method, the investment in the associate is initially measured at cost. The carrying amount of the investment is adjusted to recognise changes in the Group's share of net assets of the associates since the acquisition date. The income statement reflects the Group's share of the results of operations of the entity. The statement of comprehensive income includes the Group's share of any other comprehensive income recognised by the associate. Dividend income is recognised when the right to receive the payment is established.

 

Non-controlling interests

Non-controlling interests in the net assets of consolidated subsidiaries are identified separately from the Group's equity and consist of the amount of those interests at the date of the original business combination plus their share of changes in equity since that date.

 

Service concession arrangements

The concession granted by the Municipality of Lisbon to occupy and operate an area within the Mercado da Ribeira in Lisbon is accounted for as a service concession arrangement under IFRIC 12 'Service Concession Arrangements'.  The present value of all payments to the Municipality are capitalised and recognised as a separate intangible asset and a corresponding obligation is recognised.  The intangible asset is amortised on a straight-line basis over the life of the concession arrangement.

4. Segmental information

 

In accordance with IFRS 8, the Group's operating segments are based on the figures reviewed by the Board of Directors, which represents the chief operating decision maker.  The Group is organised into four operating activities, having added a segment to report the acquired Market business:

 

·      Print - sale of print advertising and publications;

·      Digital - sale of digital advertising (including Premium Profiles) and e-commerce commissions generated by online bookings and transactions;

·      International - fees and royalties from third party licensees for the rights to publish print magazines and produce website content under the Time Out brand; and

·      Market - predominantly turnover related rent from restaurants in the market and charges for services.

7. Taxation

 

The taxation credit for the six months ended 30 June 2016 comprises £67k of deferred tax related to the acquisition of intangible assets in the US and Europe (30 June 2015: £219k; 31 December 2015: £274k) and £2k of current tax (30 June 2015: £417k; 31 December 2015: £427k). 

 

The current tax credit recognised in 2015 mainly related to the recovery of R&D tax credits.  The deferred tax liability is calculated using a tax rate of 18%, the credit for the six months to 30 June 2015 includes the impact of rate reduction from 20% to 18% on the deferred tax liability related to the US intangible assets.

 

 

8.  Loss per share

 

Basic loss per share is calculated by dividing the loss attributable to shareholders by the weighted average number of shares during the period.

 

For diluted loss per share, the weighted average number of shares in issue is adjusted to assume conversion for all dilutive potential shares.  All potential ordinary shares including options and deferred shares are antidilutive as they would decrease the loss per share, and are therefore not considered, diluted loss per share is therefore equal to basic loss per share.

On 14 June 2016, the Group acquired the entire issued preference share capital and an additional 76.5% of the total ordinary share capital of Time Out Market Limited.  The Group had previously acquired 8.5% of the ordinary share capital of the acquiree and hence now owns 85% of the voting equity interests.

Time Out Market Limited owns 75.1% of MC-Mercados da Capital, LDA, the operator of the Lisbon Time Out Market.  The Group intends to expand the Time Out Market concept internationally and is in advanced discussions regarding potential new venues for Time Out Market in cities including London, New York, Miami, Berlin and Porto.

 

Given the proximity of the acquisition date to the period end, the amounts recognised in the financial statements have been determined only provisionally.  The provisional fair values of the assets and liabilities acquired are as follows:

 

 

£'000

Property, plant and equipment

5,113

Intangible assets - other

1,250

Trade and other receivables

730

Cash and cash equivalents

836

(3,319)

Goodwill

9,662

Consideration paid

9,530

 

Acquired intangible assets mainly comprise the concession granted by the Municipality of Lisbon to occupy and fully operate an area within the Mercado da Ribeira in Lisbon.

 

The Group has not yet undertaken the fair value exercise to identify acquired intangible assets and recognise the acquired net assets at fair value.  Hence, the current goodwill includes the value of the acquired intangible assets which may be separately identified after the valuation exercise.  The goodwill acquired is not deductible for tax purposes.

 

The non-controlling interest, representing shares held by third parties in respect of the Lisbon business and a management shareholding in Time Out Market, is measured using the proportionate share method.

 

The fair value of the previously held equity interest in the acquiree is equal to the original cost of £2, as a result there is no gain or loss recognised on the acquisition of the additional ordinary share capital.

 

Revenue of £147k and operating loss of £7k since the acquisition date have been included in the consolidated income statement.  If the business combination had occurred at the beginning of the year the revenue for the six months would have been £16,601k (30 June 2015: £14,327k) and the operating loss for the period would have been £7,880k (30 June 2015: £7,579k).

 

b) Acquisition of HallStreet.com

On 1 March 2016, the Group acquired the trade and assets of Hall Street Barcelona, SL, an e-commerce business registered in Spain for cash consideration of £292,173 and shares of a value of £2,426.

 

The provisional fair value of the assets and liabilities acquired was £4k of property, plant and equipment and £4k of other payables, resulting in goodwill recognised equal to the consideration paid of £294k.  The goodwill represents the value of the acquired assembled workforce and is not deductible for tax purposes.

 

c) 2015 acquisition of Capital de Escrita

On 12 November 2015, the Group acquired the trade and assets of a former licensee, Capital de Escrita, LDA in Portugal for cash consideration of £1,154,147.

 

The review of the fair value of the assets and liabilities acquired in this business combination has resulted in the recognition of an intangible asset for the re-acquired trademark rights in Portugal and a related deferred tax liability.

 

The updated fair value of assets and liability acquired in the acquisition is as follows:

 

 

£'000

Intangible assets - re-acquired trademark rights

201

Property, plant and equipment

-

Trade and other receivables

4

Trade and other payables

(77)

(36)

10. Acquisition of associate - Flypay Limited

 

On 14 June 2016, the Group acquired a further 41.5% of the ordinary share capital of Flypay Limited, having acquired 0.1% of their ordinary share capital during 2015.  The Group issued 4,660,000 ordinary shares as consideration, with a total fair value of £6,990,000.

 

The cost of investment in Flypay is recognised on the Statement of Financial Position as an investment in associate.
