Quebecor consolidates the financial results of its Quebecor Media Inc. ("Quebecor Media") subsidiary, in which it holds a 75.4% interest.

Third quarter 2013 highlights

  • Operating income1 up $31.0 million (8.9%) to $380.3 million.

  • Adjusted income from continuing operations:2 $63.7 million in the third quarter of 2013 ($0.51 per basic share) compared with $49.5 million ($0.39 per basic share) in the same period of 2012, an increase of $14.2 million ($0.12 per basic share) or 28.7%.

  • Telecommunications segment's revenues up $33.1 million (5.1%) and operating income up $24.9 million (8.2%) in the third quarter of 2013.

  • Videotron Ltd. ("Videotron") recorded third quarter 2013 revenue increases for all of its major services: mobile telephony ($13.0 million or 28.9%), Internet access ($12.0 million or 6.2%), cable telephony ($6.0 million or 5.3%), and cable television ($1.5 million or 0.6%).

  • Videotron's revenue-generating units3 up 43,500 in the third quarter of 2013 (compared with an increase of 101,100 in the same quarter of 2012) and up 147,000 (3.0%) in the 12-month period ended September 30, 2013. Videotron passed the 5 million revenue-generating units mark during the third quarter of 2013.

  • On October 22, 2013, Videotron qualified on a provisional basis to participate in the 700 MHz spectrum auction announced by Industry Canada, which is scheduled to commence on January 14, 2014.

  • News Media segment's operating income up 14.7% to $25.8 million; Broadcasting segment's operating income more than doubled to $15.2 million. The increases reflect, among other things, the impact of significant cost-containment and repositioning initiatives implemented in recent years.

2 See "Adjusted income from continuing operations" under "Definitions."
3 The sum of cable television, cable and mobile Internet access, and cable telephony service subscriptions and subscriber connections to the mobile telephony service.

"The News Media and Broadcasting segments grew their operating income in the third quarter of 2013," said Robert Dépatie, President and Chief Executive Officer of Quebecor. "Accordingly, the Telecommunications segment's growth was fully reflected in the overall improvement in the Corporation's consolidated results. The stronger results at our media subsidiaries show that the restructuring and repositioning initiatives we have taken over the past few years are bearing fruit. Financial transactions that create value for shareholders, carried out since the beginning of 2012, also contributed to the 28.7% increase in adjusted income from continuing operations."

"In a highly competitive market, Videotron posted strong results again in the third quarter of 2013, growing its revenues by 5.1% and its operating income by 8.2%," said Manon Brouillette, President and Chief Operating Officer of Videotron. "All of Videotron's core services generated revenue increases, particularly mobile telephony and Internet access. Average monthly revenue per user ("ARPU") continued to grow, climbing $6.92 (6.2%) to $119.24. These results demonstrate once again Videotron's great creativity in developing new services and delivering the best possible customer experience. During the quarter, the illico Club Unlimited service launched in early 2013 passed the 50,000-customer mark. illico Club Unlimited offers the largest selection of unlimited on-demand French-language titles in Canada.

"During the third quarter, Videotron announced the expansion of its multiplatform offering with the addition of Super Channel to its illico Digital TV service. Super Channel carries blockbuster films, popular television series and boxing matches. Videotron also announced plans to launch a new English-language community television channel, MYtv, to serve as a voice and mirror for the Anglophone community in the greater Montréal area."

"The numbers show that the refocusing of our news media operations generated concrete financial results in the third quarter of 2013," commented Julie Tremblay, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sun Media Corporation. "The News Media segment's operating income increased by 14.7%, reflecting the impact of the many significant cost-containment and repositioning measures implemented in recent years. On the business development front, Le Sac Plus reached an exclusive agreement to distribute the Target retail chain's weekly flyer in the Le Sac Plus doorknob bag starting in fall 2013, in partnership with the Novus agency. Le Sac Plus will distribute nearly 100 million promotional flyers per year for Target through its vast, Québec-wide network."

In the Broadcasting segment, operating income totalled $15.2 million, an $8.4 million increase from the same period of 2012. The increase reflects the positive impact of a retroactive adjustment to retransmission royalties as well as the restructuring and cost-containment initiatives undertaken in the second quarter of 2013.

"By leveraging all its strengths, Quebecor is positioning itself to pursue its growth, business development and profitability targets," said Robert Dépatie.

2013/2012 third quarter comparison

Revenues: $1.08 billion, an increase of $20.4 million (1.9%).

  • Revenues increased in Telecommunications ($33.1 million or 5.1% of segment revenues) and Broadcasting ($5.1 million or 5.2%).

  • Revenues were flat in Interactive Technologies and Communications.

  • Revenues decreased in News Media ($19.8 million or -8.7%) and Leisure and Entertainment ($2.9 million or -3.7%).

  • Operating income decreased in Leisure and Entertainment ($3.9 million or -33.1%) and at Head Office ($5.2 million). The decrease at Head Office was due primarily to the unfavourable variance in the fair value of stock options.

  • The change in the fair value of Quebecor Media stock options resulted in a $3.5 million unfavourable variance in the consolidated stock-based compensation charge in the third quarter of 2013 compared with the same period of 2012. The change in the fair value of Quebecor stock options resulted in a $6.7 million unfavourable variance in the Corporation's consolidated stock-based compensation charge in the third quarter of 2013.

Net loss attributable to shareholders: $167.8 million ($1.36 per basic share) in the third quarter of 2013, compared with net income attributable to shareholders in the amount of $17.1 million ($0.14 per basic share) in the same period of 2012, an unfavourable variance of $184.9 million ($1.50 per basic share).

  • The unfavourable variance was due primarily to:

    • $132.3 million unfavourable variance in losses and gains on valuation and translation of financial instruments;

During the third quarter of 2013, Quebecor Media recorded a total non-cash charge of $305.8 million in its News Media and Leisure and Entertainment segments for impairment of goodwill and intangible assets ($187.0 million in the third quarter of 2012), in accordance with IFRS accounting valuation principles. The charge reflects weak market conditions and the impact of the transition to digital in the newspaper, music and book industries.

Adjusted income from continuing operations: $63.7 million in the third quarter of 2013 ($0.51 per basic share) compared with $49.5 million ($0.39 per basic share) in the third quarter of 2012, an increase of $14.2 million ($0.12 per basic share).

  • Revenues increased in Telecommunications ($89.4 million or 4.6% of segment revenues) and Broadcasting ($2.7 million or 0.8%).

  • Operating income increased in Telecommunications ($63.5 million or 7.1% of segment operating income), Broadcasting ($13.1 million or 71.6%) and Interactive Technologies and Communications ($3.2 million or 50.0%).

  • Operating income decreased in News Media ($18.4 million or -24.9%), Leisure and Entertainment ($7.4 million or -44.8%) and at Head Office ($9.5 million). The decrease at Head Office was due primarily to the unfavourable variance in the fair value of stock options.

  • The change in the fair value of Quebecor Media stock options resulted in a $0.3 million favourable variance in the consolidated stock-based compensation charge in the first nine months of 2013 compared with the same period of 2012. The change in the fair value of Quebecor stock options resulted in an $11.5 million unfavourable variance in the Corporation's consolidated stock-based compensation charge in the first nine months of 2013.

Net loss attributable to shareholders: $177.3 million ($1.43 per basic share) in the first nine months of 2013, compared with net income attributable to shareholders in the amount of $154.0 million ($1.22 per basic share) in the same period of 2012, an unfavourable variance of $331.3 million ($2.65 per basic share).

  • The unfavourable variance was due primarily to:

    • $441.4 million unfavourable variance in losses and gains on valuation and translation of financial instruments;

    • $64.2 million increase in amortization charge;

    • $13.9 million favourable variance in the charge for restructuring of operations, impairment of assets and other special items.

Operating income

In its analysis of operating results, the Corporation defines operating income, as reconciled to net (loss) income under IFRS, as net (loss) income before amortization, financial expenses, (loss) gain on valuation and translation of financial instruments, charge for restructuring of operations, impairment of assets and other special items, charge for impairment of goodwill and intangible assets, (loss) gain on debt refinancing, income tax, and (loss) income from discontinued operations. Operating income 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 operating income 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 amortization of tangible and intangible assets and is unaffected by the capital structure or investment activities of the Corporation and its segments.

Operating income 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. In addition, measures like operating income are commonly used by the investment community to analyze and compare the performance of companies in the industries in which the Corporation is engaged. The Corporation's definition of operating income may not be the same as similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Table 2 below provides a reconciliation of operating income with net (loss) income as disclosed in Quebecor's condensed consolidated financial statements.

Adjusted income from continuing operations

The Corporation defines adjusted income from continuing operations, as reconciled to net (loss) income attributable to shareholders under IFRS, as net (loss) income attributable to shareholders before (loss) gain on valuation and translation of financial instruments, charge for restructuring of operations, impairment of assets and other special items, charge for impairment of goodwill and intangible assets, (loss) gain on debt refinancing, net of income tax related to adjustments, net (loss) income attributable to non-controlling interests related to adjustments, and (loss) income from discontinued operations attributable to shareholders. Adjusted income from continuing operations, 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's definition of adjusted income from continuing operations may not be identical to similarly titled measures reported by other companies.

Average Monthly Revenue per User

ARPU is an industry metric that the Corporation uses to measure its monthly cable television, Internet access, cable and mobile telephony revenues per average basic cable customer. ARPU is not a measurement that is consistent with IFRS and the Corporation's definition and calculation of ARPU may not be the same as identically titled measurements reported by other companies. The Corporation calculates ARPU by dividing its combined cable television, Internet access, and cable and mobile telephony revenues by the average number of basic customers during the applicable period, and then dividing the resulting amount by the number of months in the applicable period.
