Dover Motorsports, Inc. Reports Results for the Third Quarter of 2016

27 10 2016

DOVER, DE – October 27, 2016 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – Dover Motorsports, Inc. (NYSE: DVD) today reported results for the three months ended September 30, 2016.

The Company’s NASCAR fall race weekend in Dover was held from September 30, 2016 through October 2, 2016. The K&N Pro Series East event was held during the third quarter of 2016 while the NASCAR XFINITY Series and Sprint Cup Series races were held during the fourth quarter of 2016. The entire fall race weekend was held during the fourth quarter of 2015.

Revenues for the third quarter of 2016 were $369,000 compared with $133,000 in the third quarter of 2015. Operating and marketing expenses were $1,387,000 in the third quarter of 2016 compared to $1,140,000 in the third quarter of 2015. Both increases are primarily from the timing of the 2016 fall NASCAR race weekend.

General and administrative expenses of $1,799,000 in the third quarter of 2016 were comparable to $1,748,000 in the third quarter of 2015.

Depreciation expense decreased to $828,000 in the third quarter of 2016 compared to $1,410,000 in the third quarter of 2015. The decrease is due to the decision in early 2015 to remove certain grandstand seats and structures from service after our 2015 race season. We changed the estimated useful lives of the impacted assets resulting in a $655,000 increase in our third quarter 2015 depreciation expense.

Income from assets held for sale of $1,867,000 in the third quarter of 2015 represents non-refundable payments made to extend the closing date under a now expired agreement to sell our Nashville facility. We entered into this agreement on May 29, 2014 and after several amendments, the agreement expired by its terms on July 27, 2015.

Net interest expense of $41,000 in the third quarter of 2016 was comparable to $47,000 in the third quarter of 2015.

Loss before income taxes for the third quarter of 2016 was ($3,679,000) compared with loss before income taxes of ($2,357,000) in the third quarter of 2015. The results for the third quarter of 2015 include the $655,000 of accelerated depreciation and the $1,867,000 of income from assets held for sale. On an adjusted basis, excluding these items, loss before income taxes for the third quarter of 2015 was ($3,569,000).

Net loss for the third quarter of 2016 was ($2,167,000) or ($0.06) per diluted share compared to ($1,396,000) or ($0.04) per diluted share for the third quarter of 2015. Adjusted for the aforementioned items, net loss was ($2,221,000), or ($0.06) per diluted share, in the third quarter of 2015.

At September 30, 2016, the Company’s total indebtedness was $8,060,000 compared with $10,580,000 at September 30, 2015.

As previously announced, on August 25, 2016, we entered into a definitive agreement to sell our Nashville Superspeedway facility along with some related equipment and other assets. The agreement provides for an aggregate purchase price of $27.5 million in cash plus the assumption by the purchaser of our obligations under certain Variable Rate Tax Exempt Infrastructure Revenue Bonds issued by the Sports Authority of the County of Wilson, Tennessee. The Bonds, which have a remaining principal balance of $16,300,000, are secured by a letter of credit provided by us which will be replaced by a letter of credit provided by the potential purchaser. Closing is anticipated during the first quarter of 2017. The assets of Nashville Superspeedway are reported as assets held for sale in our consolidated balance sheet at September 30, 2016 and December 31, 2015.

The Company announced yesterday that its Board of Directors declared an annual cash dividend on both classes of common stock of $.05 per share. The dividend will be payable on December 10, 2016 to shareholders of record at the close of business on November 10, 2016. Due to the seasonal nature of our business, we will evaluate dividends annually.

_________________________

(1)

During the first quarter of 2016, we began a renovation project of certain track related assets at our Dover International Speedway facility which will take approximately one year to complete.  As a result, we shortened the service lives of these assets which resulted in accelerated depreciation being recorded in the first nine months of 2016.

During the first quarter of 2015, we made the decision to remove certain grandstand seating at our Dover International Speedway facility at the end of the 2015 race season.  As a result, we shortened the service lives of these assets which resulted in accelerated depreciation being recorded in the first nine months of 2015.

(2)

On May 29, 2014, we entered into an agreement to sell our Nashville Superspeedway facility.  The potential buyer made several payments to us to extend the closing date of settlement.  The sale agreement expired on July 27, 2015 and all payments made to us have been recognized as income from assets held for sale.

(3)

Loss on disposal of long-lived assets is attributable to the decision to remove and dispose of certain grandstand seating at our Dover International Speedway facility.

The above financial information is presented using other than generally accepted accounting principles (“non-GAAP”), and is reconciled to comparable information presented using GAAP.  Non-GAAP adjusted (loss) earnings before income taxes, adjusted net (loss) earnings and adjusted net (loss) earnings per common share – basic and diluted are derived by adjusting amounts determined in accordance with GAAP for the aforementioned accelerated depreciation, income from assets held for sale and loss on disposal of long-lived assets.  Income taxes are based on our approximate statutory tax rates applicable to each of these items.  We believe such non-GAAP information is useful and meaningful to investors, and is used by investors and us to assess core operations.  This non-GAAP financial information may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other entities and should not be considered as an alternative to (loss) earnings before income taxes, net (loss) earnings or net (loss) earnings per common share – basic and diluted, which are determined in accordance with GAAP.
