Acquisition of Businesses
Acquisition of Businesses

Note 3. Acquisition of Businesses

On February 19, 2013, Viad acquired the assets of Resource Creative Limited (“RCL”) for $647,000 in cash, subject to certain adjustments, plus a deferred payment of up to approximately $278,000, which is contingent upon RCL’s performance. RCL is a United Kingdom-based company specializing in providing creative graphic services to the exhibition, events and retail markets throughout the United Kingdom and continental Europe.

The preliminary amounts assigned to the assets of RCL as of the acquisition date included: property and equipment of $72,000, goodwill of $158,000 and other intangible assets of $695,000. In addition, a liability of $278,000 was recorded as of the acquisition date related to the contingent consideration. The primary factor that contributed to a purchase price resulting in the recognition of goodwill relates to future growth opportunities. The goodwill is deductible for tax purposes over a period of 15 years. The amounts assigned to other intangible assets included: $564,000 of customer relationships and $131,000 of noncompete agreements. The weighted-average amortization period related to the other intangible assets was 4.5 years. The transaction costs related to the acquisition were insignificant. The results of operations of RCL have been included in Viad’s consolidated financial statements from the date of acquisition.

On March 7, 2012, Viad acquired the Banff International Hotel and related assets for $23.6 million in cash. The Banff International Hotel is a 162-guest room hotel located in downtown Banff, Alberta, Canada and is operated by Brewster within the Travel & Recreation Group.

The goodwill is deductible for tax purposes pursuant to regulations in Canada. The amount assigned to other intangible assets relates to an operating contract and customer relationships. The weighted-average amortization period related to the other intangible assets was 7.7 years. The transaction costs related to the acquisition were insignificant. The results of operations of the Banff International Hotel have been included in Viad’s consolidated financial statements from the date of acquisition.

Debt
Debt

Note 9. Debt

In May 2011, Viad entered into an amended and restated revolving credit agreement (the “Credit Facility”). The Credit Facility provides for a $130 million revolving line of credit, which may be increased up to an additional $50 million under certain circumstances. The term of the Credit Facility is five years (expiring on May 18, 2016) and borrowings are to be used for general corporate purposes (including permitted acquisitions) and to support up to $50 million of letters of credit. The lenders have a first perfected security interest in all of the personal property of Viad and GES, including 65 percent of the capital stock of top-tier foreign subsidiaries. As of March 31, 2013, Viad’s total debt of $2.5 million consisted entirely of capital lease obligations. As of March 31, 2013, Viad had $128.2 million of capacity remaining under the Credit Facility reflecting outstanding letters of credit of $1.8 million.

Borrowings under the Credit Facility (of which GES is a guarantor) are indexed to the prime rate or the London Interbank Offered Rate, plus appropriate spreads tied to Viad’s leverage ratio. Commitment fees and letters of credit fees are also tied to Viad’s leverage ratio. The fees on the unused portion of the Credit Facility are currently 0.35 percent annually.

The Credit Facility contains various affirmative and negative covenants that are customary for facilities of this type, including a fixed-charge coverage ratio, leverage ratio, minimum cash balance, dividend limits and share repurchase restrictions. Significant other covenants include limitations on: investments, additional indebtedness, sales/leases of assets, acquisitions, consolidations or mergers and liens on property. As of March 31, 2013, Viad was in compliance with all covenants.

 

Effective December 12, 2012, the Credit Facility was amended to remove the limitation on share repurchases of $10 million in the aggregate per calendar year pursuant to certain conditions. The amendment allows share repurchases unless the Company’s leverage ratio, as defined in the Credit Facility, is greater than 1.50 to 1.00 or a default or an unmatured default, as defined in the Credit Facility, exists. The amendment also allows dividends to be declared and paid in excess of $10 million in the aggregate per calendar year, as well as distributions on its capital stock, as defined in the Credit Facility, unless the Company’s leverage ratio, as defined in the Credit Facility, is greater than 1.50 to 1.00 or a default or an unmatured default, as defined in the Credit Facility, exists.

The estimated fair value of total debt was $2.4 million and $2.1 million as of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively. The fair value of debt was estimated by discounting the future cash flows using rates currently available for debt of similar terms and maturity.

In December 2012, Viad announced its intent to repurchase up to an additional one million shares of the Company’s common stock from time to time at prevailing market prices. At the time of the announcement, there were 30,438 shares available for repurchase pursuant to previously announced authorizations. Under these authorizations, no shares were repurchased during the three months ended March 31, 2013 or 2012. As of March 31, 2013, 1,030,438 shares remain available for repurchase. Additionally, during the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, the Company repurchased 44,606 shares for $1.2 million and 50,894 shares for $1.0 million, respectively, related to tax withholding requirements on share-based awards.

Fair Value Measurements
Fair Value Measurements

Note 11. Fair Value Measurements

The fair value of an asset or liability is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. The fair value guidance requires an entity to maximize the use of quoted prices and other observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value, and also establishes a fair value hierarchy which prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value as follows:

 

Level 1 – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2 – Observable inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly.

 

Level 3 – Unobservable inputs to the valuation methodology that are significant to the measurement of fair value.

Viad measures its money market mutual funds and certain other mutual fund investments at fair value on a recurring basis using Level 1 inputs. The fair value information related to these assets is summarized in the following table:

As of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, Viad had investments in money market mutual funds of $679,000 and $10.2 million, respectively, which are included in the consolidated balance sheets under the caption “Cash and cash equivalents.” These investments were classified as available-for-sale and were recorded at fair value. There have been no realized or unrealized gains or losses related to these investments and the Company has not experienced any redemption restrictions with respect to any of the money market mutual funds.

As of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, Viad had investments in other mutual funds of $1.3 million and $1.2 million, respectively, which are classified in the consolidated balance sheets under the caption “Other investments and assets.” These investments were classified as available-for-sale and were recorded at fair value. As of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, there were unrealized gains on the investments of $550,000 ($336,000 after-tax) and $450,000 ($275,000 after-tax), respectively, which were included in the consolidated balance sheets under the caption “Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss).”

The carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, receivables and accounts payable approximate fair value due to the short-term maturities of these instruments. The estimated fair value of debt obligations is disclosed in Note 9.

Options to purchase 54,000 and 267,000 shares of common stock were outstanding during the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, but were not included in the computation of dilutive shares outstanding because the effect would be anti-dilutive. Additionally, 403,000 and 272,000 share-based compensation awards were considered dilutive and included in the computation of diluted income per share during the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Income Taxes
Income Taxes

Note 13. Income Taxes

The effective tax rates for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012 were 30.1 percent and 39.3 percent, respectively. The income tax provision for the three months ended March 31, 2013 was computed based on the Company’s estimated effective tax rate and forecasted income by jurisdiction expected to be applicable for the full fiscal year, including the impact of any unusual or infrequent items. The relatively low effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2013 as compared to the federal statutory rate of 35 percent was primarily due to foreign income which is taxed at lower rates.

 

Viad is required to estimate and record provisions for income taxes in each of the jurisdictions in which the Company operates. Accordingly, the Company must estimate its actual current income tax liability and assess temporary differences arising from the treatment of items for tax purposes as compared to the treatment for accounting purposes. These differences result in deferred tax assets and liabilities which are included in Viad’s consolidated balance sheets. As of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, Viad had gross deferred tax assets of $73.3 million and $77.2 million, respectively. These deferred tax assets reflect the expected future tax benefits to be realized upon reversal of deductible temporary differences and the utilization of net operating loss and tax credit carryforwards.

The Company considered all available positive and negative evidence regarding the future recoverability of its deferred tax assets, including the Company’s recent operating history, taxpaying history and future reversals of deferred tax liabilities. The Company also evaluated its ability to utilize its foreign tax credits, given its recent utilization history. These tax credits are subject to a 10-year carryforward period and begin to expire in 2019. Based on the Company’s assessment, it was determined during the fourth quarter of 2012 that the weight of the evidence indicated that certain deferred tax assets associated with foreign tax credit carryforwards no longer met the more-likely-than-not test regarding the realization of those assets. As of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, Viad had a valuation allowance of $14.7 million and $14.6 million, respectively, related to certain federal, state and foreign deferred tax assets. With respect to all other deferred tax assets, management believes that recovery from future taxable income is more-likely-than-not.

As noted above, Viad uses considerable judgment in forming a conclusion regarding the recoverability of its deferred tax assets. As a result, there are inherent uncertainties regarding the ultimate realization of these assets, which is primarily dependent upon Viad’s ability to generate sufficient taxable income in future periods. In future periods, it is reasonably possible that the relative weight of positive and negative evidence regarding the recoverability of Viad’s deferred tax assets may change, which could result in a material increase in the Company’s valuation allowance. If such an increase in the valuation allowance were to occur, it would result in increased income tax expense in the period the assessment was made.

Viad had accrued gross liabilities associated with uncertain tax positions for discontinued operations of $636,000 as of both March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012. In addition, as of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, Viad had accrued interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions for discontinued operations of $426,000 and $418,000, respectively. Future tax resolutions or settlements that may occur related to these uncertain tax positions would be recorded through discontinued operations (net of federal tax effects, if applicable). Viad does not expect any of the unrecognized tax benefits to be recognized during the next 12 months. As of both March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, liabilities associated with uncertain tax positions (including interest and penalties) of $1.1 million were classified as non-current liabilities.

Viad expects to contribute $2.0 million to its funded pension plans, $1.1 million to its unfunded pension plans and $400,000 to its postretirement benefit plans in 2013. During the three months ended March 31, 2013, Viad contributed $721,000 to its funded pension plans and $227,000 to its unfunded pension plans. However, due to timing of the fundings, Viad made no contributions to its postretirement benefit plans during the three months ended March 31, 2013.

During the three months ended March 31, 2013, Viad recorded net restructuring charges of $720,000 primarily related to facility consolidations and the elimination of certain positions in the Marketing & Events Group. The amounts included in the restructuring liability as of March 31, 2013 related to future lease obligations which will be paid over the remaining lease terms, and severance and employee benefits that are expected to be paid by the end of 2013. The table below represents a reconciliation of Viad’s restructuring liability by major restructuring activity:

Litigation, Claims, Contingencies and Other

Note 16. Litigation, Claims, Contingencies and Other

Viad and certain of its subsidiaries are plaintiffs or defendants to various actions, proceedings and pending claims, some of which involve, or may involve, compensatory, punitive or other damages. Litigation is subject to many uncertainties and it is possible that some of the legal actions, proceedings or claims could be decided against Viad. Although the amount of liability as of March 31, 2013, with respect to certain of these matters is not ascertainable, Viad believes that any resulting liability, after taking into consideration amounts already provided for, including insurance coverage, will not have a material impact on the Company’s business, financial position or results of operations.

Viad is subject to various U.S. federal, state and foreign laws and regulations governing the prevention of pollution and the protection of the environment in the jurisdictions in which Viad has or had operations. If the Company has failed to comply with these environmental laws and regulations, civil and criminal penalties could be imposed and Viad could become subject to regulatory enforcement actions in the form of injunctions and cease and desist orders. As is the case with many companies, Viad also faces exposure to actual or potential claims and lawsuits involving environmental matters relating to its past operations. Although it is a party to certain environmental disputes, Viad believes that any resulting liabilities, after taking into consideration amounts already provided for, including insurance coverage, will not have a material effect on the Company’s financial position or results of operations. As of March 31, 2013, there was a remaining environmental remediation liability of $5.3 million related to previously sold operations of which $499,000 was included in the consolidated balance sheets under the caption “Other current liabilities” and $4.8 million under the caption “Other deferred items and liabilities.”

As of March 31, 2013, Viad had certain obligations under guarantees to third parties on behalf of its subsidiaries. These guarantees are not subject to liability recognition in the consolidated financial statements and relate to leased facilities entered into by Viad’s subsidiary operations. The Company would generally be required to make payments to the respective third parties under these guarantees in the event that the related subsidiary could not meet its own payment obligations. The maximum potential amount of future payments that Viad would be required to make under all guarantees existing as of March 31, 2013 would be $19.0 million. These guarantees relate to leased facilities expiring through October 2017. There are no recourse provisions that would enable Viad to recover from third parties any payments made under the guarantees. Furthermore, there are no collateral or similar arrangements whereby Viad could recover payments.

Viad’s businesses contribute to various multi-employer pension plans based on obligations arising under collective-bargaining agreements covering its union-represented employees. Based upon the information available to Viad from plan administrators, management believes that several of these multi-employer plans are underfunded. The Pension Protection Act of 2006 requires pension plans underfunded at certain levels to reduce, over defined time periods, the underfunded status. In addition, under current laws, the termination of a plan, or a voluntary withdrawal from a plan by Viad, or a shrinking contribution base to a plan as a result of the insolvency or withdrawal of other contributing employers to such plan, would require Viad to make payments to such plan for its proportionate share of the plan’s unfunded vested liabilities. As of March 31, 2013, the amount of additional funding, if any, that Viad would be required to make related to multi-employer pension plans is not ascertainable.

 

Glacier Park operates the concession portion of its business under a concession contract with the U.S. National Park Service (the “Park Service”) for Glacier National Park. Glacier Park’s original 25-year concession contract with the Park Service that was to expire on December 31, 2005 has been extended for eight one-year periods and now expires on December 31, 2013. Glacier Park generated approximately 49 percent of its 2012 revenues through its concession contract for services provided within Glacier National Park.

On December 14, 2012, the Park Service issued a prospectus soliciting proposals from prospective bidders, including Glacier Park, for the award of a 16-year concession contract beginning on January 1, 2014. Glacier Park submitted its bid for the contract on April 16, 2013. Although Viad believes that Glacier Park is well-positioned to win the new contract, if the Park Service selects a new concessionaire, Glacier Park would be entitled to $25 million for its “possessory interest,” which generally means the value of the structures acquired or constructed, fixtures installed and improvements made to the concession property at Glacier National Park during the term of the concession contract, plus an additional estimated $5 million to $6 million for the personal property Glacier Park uses at the facilities covered by the concession contract.

If a new concessionaire is selected by the Park Service, Glacier Park would continue to generate revenue from the four properties it owns outside of Glacier National Park: Glacier Park Lodge in East Glacier, Montana; Grouse Mountain Lodge in Whitefish, Montana; St. Mary Lodge & Resort in St. Mary, Montana and the Prince of Wales Hotel in Waterton Lakes National Park, Alberta, which Glacier Park owns and operates under a 42-year ground lease with the Canadian government running through January 31, 2052. Glacier Park generated 24 percent of the Travel & Recreation Group’s 2012 segment operating income.

Segment Information
Segment Information

Note 17. Segment Information

Viad measures profit and performance of its operations on the basis of segment operating income which excludes restructuring charges and recoveries and impairment charges and recoveries. For the purpose of discussing segment operations, Viad refers to segment operating income as calculated by subtracting segment direct expenses from segment revenues. Overhead and shared expenses, including share-based compensation costs, are not allocated to segment operations; they are reported in the caption “Corporate activities.” Similarly, references to operating margin regarding segment operations mean segment operating income divided by segment revenues. Intersegment sales are eliminated in consolidation and intersegment transfers are not significant. Corporate activities include expenses not allocated to operations. Depreciation and amortization and share-based compensation expense are the only significant non-cash items for the reportable segments.

Impact of Recent Accounting Pronouncements
Impact of Recent Accounting Pronouncements

Note 18. Impact of Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In February 2013, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued new guidance related to the reporting of amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income, which is codified in Accounting Standards Codification Topic 220. The new guidance requires entities to provide information about the amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income by component. In addition, entities are required to present significant amounts reclassified out of other comprehensive income by the respective line items of net income in certain circumstances, or otherwise cross-reference amounts to other disclosures. The adoption of this new guidance did not have an impact on Viad’s financial condition or results of operations. See Note 10 for required disclosures.
