Net income attributable to Viad improved by $25 million from the 2021 third quarter primarily driven by higher revenue at GES and Pursuit.

Pursuit Results

Pursuit’s third quarter revenue increased $46.2 million (39%) from the 2021 quarter. Pursuit’s same-store revenue from experiences that were owned and open prior to 2021 was $145.1 million, up $34.9 million from the 2021 third quarter primarily due to stronger visitation at our Canadian experiences, which were impacted in 2021 by border restrictions. Revenue from new experiences opened or acquired from 2021 forward was $18.7 million versus $7.4 million in the prior year quarter, reflecting the continued ramping of Sky Lagoon and Golden Skybridge and the additions of FlyOver Las Vegas and Glacier Raft Company.

Pursuit’s third quarter adjusted EBITDA increased by $15.5 million versus the 2021 third quarter primarily due to the increase in revenue.

Regarding Pursuit’s results, Moster commented, “Pursuit delivered significant year-over-year growth during the third quarter as international tourism to Canada and Iceland improved versus 2021 and our U.S. hotels and attractions continued to post very strong results. Although we haven’t yet seen a full recovery of long-haul international guests to our Canadian experiences, Pursuit continues to achieve record levels of revenue due to our ongoing Refresh, Build, Buy efforts. We are driving growth through investments in new attractions and hotels, as well as upgraded food and beverage and retail offerings across our existing portfolio.”

Moster continued, “As long-haul leisure travel continues to recover and awareness of our newest attractions builds, we expect strong growth will continue beyond 2022.”

GES Results

GES’ third quarter revenue increased $102.9 million (89%) from the 2021 third quarter and Adjusted EBITDA improved by $14.9 million. These improvements are primarily due to increased live event activity as compared to the 2021 third quarter.

Regarding GES’ overall results, Moster commented, “GES posted strong third quarter results as live event activity continued to improve and we realized the benefits of an improved cost structure. Same-show revenues for events produced by our U.S. exhibitions team grew to 91% of 2019 pre-pandemic levels, up from 46% in the 2021 third quarter, and we continued to see solid spending from Spiro’s corporate clients.”

Moster continued, “The benefits of our cost structure improvements are apparent when comparing our third quarter results to those achieved in the 2019 third quarter. On essentially the same level of revenue, we delivered adjusted EBITDA that was $13.5 million better than the 2019 third quarter. I remain confident that the actions we took during the pandemic have positioned GES Exhibitions and Spiro for greater success in the future.”

The following table provides a comparison of 2022 third quarter revenue and Adjusted EBITDA to the comparable period in 2021 for GES’ two reportable segments.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Highlights

We ended the third quarter with total liquidity of $165.8 million, comprising cash and cash equivalents of $79.2 million and $86.6 million of capacity available on our revolving credit facility ($100 million total facility size, less $13.4 million in letters of credit). Our debt totaled $479.4 million, including $397 million outstanding on our Term Loan B, financing lease obligations of approximately $60 million (which primarily comprises real estate leases at Pursuit), and approximately $22 million in other debt.

Our 2022 third quarter cash flow from operations was an inflow of approximately $61 million, our capital expenditures totaled approximately $23 million, and we paid approximately $2 million in cash dividends on our convertible preferred equity. Our net debt payments during the quarter were approximately $8 million, including $15 million on our revolver offset in part by other borrowings of approximately $7 million.

Moster commented, “During the third quarter, we completed construction of and opened our new Forest Park Hotel in downtown Jasper and continued to make progress with other growth investments including FlyOver Chicago and a new mountain coaster at our Golden Skybridge attraction. We remain focused on prudent cash management to maintain a strong liquidity position while also making smart investments in high-return growth opportunities through Pursuit’s Refresh, Build, Buy strategy.”

2022 Outlook

Regarding Viad’s outlook, Moster commented, “We have experienced very strong recovery across our businesses this year and we expect that will continue into the fourth quarter. At Pursuit, we’ll enter a seasonally slower part of the year, but we expect to deliver higher adjusted EBITDA as compared to the 2021 fourth quarter as same-store revenue improves and our newer year-round attractions continue to grow. At GES, we expect the recent positive trends we have experienced in same-show revenue and corporate client spending will continue and result in higher fourth quarter revenue than we experienced in 2021.”

Our guidance for Adjusted EBITDA is as follows:

Forward-Looking Non-GAAP Measures

The company has not quantitatively reconciled its guidance for adjusted EBITDA to its respective most comparable GAAP financial measure because certain reconciling items that impact this metric including, provision for income taxes, interest expense, restructuring or impairment charges, acquisition-related costs, and attraction start-up costs have not occurred, are out of the company’s control, or cannot be reasonably predicted. Accordingly, reconciliations to the nearest GAAP financial measure are not available without unreasonable effort. Please note that the unavailable reconciling items could significantly impact the company’s results as reported under GAAP.

VIAD CORP AND SUBSIDIARIES
TABLE ONE – NOTES TO QUARTERLY RESULTS
(UNAUDITED)
 
(A) Corporate Activities — The increase in corporate activities expense during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 was primarily due to higher performance-based compensation expense.
 
(B) Restructuring Charges — Restructuring charges during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021 were primarily related to facility closures and severance at GES. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, we accelerated our transformation and streamlining efforts at GES to significantly reduce costs and create a lower and more flexible cost structure focused on servicing our more profitable market segments.
 
(C) Net Interest Expense — The increase in interest expense during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2022 was primarily due to higher interest rates and higher debt balances in 2022, offset in part by $0.1 million in capitalized interest recorded during the three months ended September 30, 2022 and $2.7 million during the nine months ended September 30, 2022.
 
(D) Income Tax Expense – The effective rate was 18% for the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 21% for the three months ended September 30, 2021. The effective rate was 23% for the nine months ended September 30, 2022 and 0% for the nine months ended September 30, 2021. The effective tax rates differed from the blended statutory rate primarily as a result of excluding the tax expense or benefit in jurisdictions where we have a valuation allowance. The minimal tax expense recorded for the nine months ended September 30, 2021 on a pre-tax loss was due to the minimal pre-tax income earned in jurisdictions with no valuation allowance.
 
(E) Income (Loss) per Common Share — We apply the two-class method in calculating income (loss) per common share as preferred stock and unvested share-based payment awards that contain nonforteitable rights to dividends are considered participating securities. Accordingly, such securities are included in the earnings allocation in calculating income per share.
Diluted income (loss) per common share is calculated using the more dilutive of the two-class method or as-converted method. The two-class method uses net income (loss) available to common stockholders and assumes conversion of all potential shares other than participating securities. The as-converted method uses net income (loss) available to common shareholders and assumes conversion of all potential shares including participating securities. Dilutive potential common shares include outstanding stock options, unvested restricted share units and convertible preferred stock.
Additionally, the adjustment to the carrying value of redeemable non-controlling interests is reflected in income (loss) per common share.
The components of basic and diluted income (loss) per share are as follows:
