OPERATING HIGHLIGHTS

· Combined Russian national inventory almost fully sold-out for Q3 and approximately 95% sold-out for the full year

· Establishment of new unified content production company Story First Production in July to merge Costafilm and Soho Media platforms

· Launch of new digital broadcasting complex in Moscow in July

· DTV Network relaunched under the “Peretz” brand name and logo in October, with significant changes made to its programming grid

· Channel 31 in Kazakhstan recorded an all-time high average quarterly audience share of 17.7% in Q3

· Videomore.ru received an average of 350,000 unique visitors per day in Q3, up from 120,000 in Q2

· CTC Media’s content is now available on VimpelCom’s IPTV platform Beeline TV, through an interactive subscription service 

Anton Kudryashov, Chief Executive Officer of CTC Media, commented: “We continue to capture the growth in the Russian TV advertising market with an almost fully sold out inventory for Q3 at prices that are significantly higher year-on-year and with an increased blended power ratio. However, as expected, the market growth slowed down in Q3 compared to the first half of 2011 and our revenue dynamics were also affected by lower year-on-year audience shares of our flagship CTC channel.

“Our Fall schedule ratings have gradually improved as the season has progressed and as our major prime time premieres have been rolled out. DTV’s repositioning to Peretz has been launched, and the introduction of a new communications platform and programming grid for the channel marks the first step of this process. Growth in CTC Media’s other markets continues to exceed expectations, mainly due to a substantial increase in the average target audience shares of Channel 31 in Kazakhstan and the dynamic growth in scale and reach of CTC-International and our new media activities. The number of unique daily visitors of our online social television network Videomore.ru almost tripled during the third quarter, driven by catch-up viewings of our prime-time shows. We also recently launched a female dedicated portal under the Domashny channel brand and a unique video application-based subscription service for Beeline TV IPTV customers, the first of its kind on the Russian market.  

“We are now approximately 95% sold-out for the full year, but the growth outlook for the advertising market in the near to mid-term has become more volatile and we are seeing signs of a slowdown in advertiser demand and a risk of some unsold inventory in the fourth quarter. Consequently, we now expect like-for-like total operating revenue growth of between 9% and 11% year-on-year in ruble terms for the full year. We also now expect to report an OIBDA margin of between 31% and 33% for the full year 2011 (excluding any potential additional non-recurring non-cash asset impairment charges), which is equivalent to between 35% and 37% under the terms of the advertising sales structure that was in place prior to 2011. We continue to expect full year CAPEX, excluding acquisitions, to amount to up to $25 million. 

“We paid a cash dividend of $0.22 per share in October and declared a further dividend to be paid in the fourth quarter. Our anticipated total full-year dividend payments will therefore amount to $130 million, higher than in 2010, which reflects the high levels of cash generation and conversion in the business. We continue to invest in the development of our existing operations, as well as to seek and review new opportunities to expand our presence in Russia and abroad.” 

Changes in the Advertising Sales Structure in 2011 and Related Changes in Accounting Treatment  

Prior to 2011, advertising on CTC Media’s television channels in Russia was not generally placed directly by advertisers. Video International, one of the largest sales houses in Russia, placed this advertising on an exclusive basis under agency agreements. Advertising placed through Video International historically accounted for substantially all of CTC Media’s advertising revenues. Under this structure, the Company recognized the commissions paid to Video International as a reduction of revenue as opposed to a cost incurred (i.e., the Company reported revenues on a net basis).  

Effective from January 1, 2011, the Company has terminated all of its agency agreements with Video International, and developed a new structure for the sale of advertising on its channels. The Company’s own sales house now serves as the exclusive advertising sales agent for all of its networks in Russia. At the same time, the Company agreed a new model of cooperation with Video International based on the licensing of specialized advertising software by Video International to CTC Media’s internal sales house, together with the provision by Video International of related software maintenance, analytical support and consulting services. CTC Media’s internal sales house is primarily responsible for all of its national and regional advertising sales, with the exception of advertising sales to local clients of its regional stations, which continue to be placed through Video International. 

With effect from January 1, 2011 and following the change in the sales structure, as well as the change of CTC Media’s contractual terms with Video International, CTC Media reports its Russian advertising revenues, excluding regional advertising revenues from local clients, based on the amounts billed by CTC Media to advertisers on a gross basis. Fees payable to Video International for the use of advertising software, related maintenance, analytical support and consulting services are included in selling, general and administrative expenses in CTC Media’s consolidated statement of income statements. Revenues from regional advertising sales to local clients continue to be recorded net of agency commissions payable under the agency agreements with Video International. 

This press release presents selected comparable-basis non-GAAP financial measures for the third quarter and the first nine months of 2010. CTC Media is presenting this comparable-basis historical financial information in order to assist analysts and investors by facilitating period-to-period comparisons of the Company’s results following the implementation of the Company’s current model of advertising sales. The reconciliation of comparable-basis non-GAAP financial measures to US GAAP financial measures is provided at the end of this press release.  

Unaudited comparable-basis, non-GAAP summary financial information for the full year of 2009, the full year of 2010 and each quarter of 2010 is available from the Company’s website at:

The CTC Network maintained its place as the fourth most-watched broadcaster in Russia during the third quarter, while its average target audience share was down year-on-year, reflecting intensified competition and audience fragmentation. All larger national free-to-air TV channels in Russia were negatively impacted by increased non-free-to-air and local TV channel viewership, which was up year-on-year in the third quarter from 13.8% to 16.6% among 6 to 54 years-olds.

The Domashny Network’s target audience share was stable year-on-year in the third quarter at 3.3%. The DTV Network’s target audience share was also stable year-on-year in the third quarter at 2.0%. In October 2011, the channel started broadcasting under its new “Peretz” brand and logo and is now positioned as the first ironic and edgy TV channel for the adult audience, and is focused on meaningful entertainment that provides an alternative view on life. A new programming grid and communications platform were introduced, which center around a more edgy theme and on-air presence.

Starting from January 1, 2012, the target audiences of the Domashny and DTV (Peretz) Networks will be slightly adjusted as part of a standardization of advertising inventory that is taking place in the Russian television industry. Thus, Domashny’s target audience will be modified from “females 25-60” to “females 25-59”; DTV’s target audience will be modified from “all 25-54” to “all 25-59”.

Channel 31’s average target audience share was up substantially year-on-year and also up quarter-on-quarter to 17.7%. This is the highest ever quarterly audience share recorded for the channel. Channel 31 has therefore further strengthened its position as the second most-watched broadcaster in Kazakhstan. The year-on-year increase was primarily due to the good performance of own-produced Kazakh-language entertainment shows, the success of Turkish prime time series and a stronger movie line-up.

The third quarter audience share of the CTC/TV DIXI channel in Moldova averaged 6.9% in its all 6-54 target demographic (urban), up from 2.0% during the third quarter of 2010. This is the channel’s highest quarterly audience share for the last three years and CTC/TV DIXI is now the third most-watched broadcaster in Moldova, up from the eighth most-watched in the third quarter of 2010.

Total operating revenues were up 12% year-on-year in the third quarter in US dollar terms and up 7% in ruble terms, each on a comparable basis, which primarily reflected the growth of the Russian television advertising market and growth in the Company’s other markets, resulting in higher pricing levels. This was partially offset by lower year-on-year target audience shares for the CTC channel. Russian advertising sales accounted for approximately 94% of third quarter total operating revenues and were up 9% year-on-year in ruble terms on a comparable basis.  

The Company’s sublicensing and own-production revenue was down 45% year-on-year in the third quarter in US dollar terms, which was primarily due to lower sales of content to broadcasters in Ukraine. As previously indicated, the sublicensing and own-production revenue comparables were exceptionally high in 2010 and will not be repeated in 2011. 

Other revenue was up 248% year-on-year in the third quarter in US dollar terms, which primarily reflects growth in revenues from CTC-International and from new media projects.

The higher year-on-year growth in third quarter revenues for the Company’s television station groups compared with revenue growth for the networks is primarily due to a higher rate of growth in the Russian regional TV advertising market than in the national TV advertising market.

The CIS Group, which accounted for 2% of revenues in the third quarter of 2011, reported a 53% year-on-year increase in sales in US dollar terms. This primarily reflected higher target audience shares and advertising prices for Channel 31 in Kazakhstan.

Expenses

On a comparable basis, total operating expenses before non-recurring items were up 11% year-on-year in the third quarter in US dollar terms and up 5% in ruble terms. This primarily reflected the year-on-year increase in programming amortization costs, direct operating expenses and selling, general and administrative expenses, though these increases were partially offset by the year-on-year decrease in stock-based compensation expenses.

Segment revenues are shown from external customers only, net of intercompany revenues of $32.7 million in the first nine months of 2010 and $24.5 million in the first nine months of 2011, primarily related to revenues from the Production Group that have been eliminated in the consolidation of the Company’s revenues.

Direct operating expenses increased by 30% year-on-year in US dollar terms and by 23% in ruble terms in the third quarter, largely as a result of increased transmission fees, broadcasting expenses relating to regional stations acquired after the third quarter of 2010 and higher salaries and benefits.

On a comparable basis, selling, general and administrative expenses were up 9% year-on-year in US dollar terms and up 4% year-on-year in ruble terms in the third quarter. The increase was primarily due to higher salaries and benefits and higher rent and utility expenses associated with the move to a new principal office location in Moscow. Compensation payable to Video International, which has been included in selling, general and administrative expenses from January 1, 2011, amounted to $16.4 million in the third quarter of 2011, compared to agency commission fees of $16.6 million paid to Video International in respect of national and regional advertising revenues from Moscow-based clients in the third quarter of 2010.

Stock-based compensation expenses totaled $0.8 million in the third quarter (Q3 2010: $9.2 million). The decrease in stock-based compensation expense was principally due to the reversal of portion of expense related to some options and stock appreciation rights that are not expected to vest, and the fact that some options granted in 2007 and 2008 became fully vested.

Programming expenses were up 27% year-on-year in US dollar terms and up 21% in ruble terms in the third quarter, which primarily reflected a more expensive content mix for the CTC and Domashny channels and higher programming impairment charges due to changes in programming schedules and the relative underperformance of certain programming.

Amortization of programming rights for the CTC channel increased by 28% year-on-year in US dollar terms and by 21% in ruble terms in the third quarter. Programming impairment charges amounted to $4.0 million (Q3 2010: $1.3 million). Amortization of programming rights for the Domashny channel increased by 31% year-on-year in US dollar terms and by 24% in ruble terms in the third quarter. Programming impairment charges amounted to $1.4 million (Q3 2010: $1.0 million). Amortization of programming rights for the DTV channel decreased by 20% year-on-year in US dollar terms and by 24% in ruble terms in the third quarter. Programming impairment charges amounted to $1.8 million in the third quarter of each of 2010 and 2011.

Sublicensing and own production costs were down 26% year-on-year in US dollar terms and down 30% year-on-year in ruble terms in the third quarter, and primarily reflected the year-on-year decrease in corresponding revenues.

Depreciation and amortization expenses were up 40% year-on-year in US dollar terms and up 33% year-on-year in ruble terms in the third quarter. The increase primarily related to the Company’s new broadcasting facility in Moscow.

As a result of its latest interim asset impairment test, the Company has recorded non-cash impairment charges totaling $16.8 million, which primarily related to an impairment charge in respect of the carrying value of the DTV trade name as a result of the Company’s decision to reposition and rebrand that network, as well as certain regional licenses. Starting from October 2011, the DTV Network operates under the new brand name and logo “Peretz”.

CTC Media therefore reported consolidated adjusted OIBDA of $48.1 million in the third quarter (Q3 2010: $40.7 million). The adjusted OIBDA margin was 30.2% for the quarter (Q3 2010 comparable-basis OIBDA margin: 28.7%).

Net interest income was $1.1 million in the third quarter of 2011 (Q3 2010: $0.9 million). The Company reported a foreign currency loss of $2.1 million in the third quarter of 2011 (Q3 2010 foreign currency gain: $0.2 million) due to the impact of ruble depreciation on the Company’s dollar-denominated liabilities, partially offset by the impact of ruble depreciation on its dollar-denominated assets.

Adjusted pre-tax income therefore increased by 22% year-on-year in US dollar terms to $47.0 million in the third quarter (Q3 2010: $38.4 million).

CTC Media’s adjusted effective tax rate was flat year-on-year at 35% in the third quarter.

Adjusted net income attributable to CTC Media, Inc. stockholders therefore increased by 23% year-on-year in US dollar terms to $29.9 million in the third quarter (Q3 2010: $24.3 million), and adjusted fully diluted earnings per share increased to $0.19 (Q3 2010: $0.16). 

Cash Flow

The Company’s net cash flow from operating activities totaled $57.0 million for the first nine months of 2011 (first nine months of 2010: $71.8 million) and reflected the net effect of increased advertising sales and higher cash expenditure, including acquisition of programming and sublicensing rights.

Net cash used in investing activities totaled $1.9 million (first nine months of 2010: $87.8 million). This included $16.0 million of capital expenditures (mainly purchases of equipment and software for the Company’s new digital broadcasting center in Moscow), $6.5 million paid in earn-outs relating to the acquisition of Costafilm and $18.0 million paid in relation to the acquisition of regional television stations. These cash payments were partially offset by $38.6 million of net cash receipts from deposits.

Cash used in financing activities amounted to $59.2 million for the first nine months of 2011 (first nine months of 2010: $26.9 million) and primarily reflected the payment of $59.7 million in cash dividends to the Company’s stockholders.

The Company’s cash and cash equivalents and short-term investments amounted to $132.2 million at September 30, 2011, compared to $146.2 million at the end of the third quarter of 2010 and to $129.5 million at the end of the second quarter of 2011. 

Dividends

The CTC Media Board of Directors has declared a dividend of $0.22 per share payable in the fourth quarter, or approximately $35 million in total, which will be paid on or about December 31, 2011 to shareholders of record as at December 1, 2011. Thus, the total dividend payments in 2011 will be approximately $130 million, as previously anticipated.  

Updated Full Year 2011 Outlook

Approximately 95% of CTC Media’s forecast full-year 2011 Russian national inventory is currently committed, at average prices that are significantly higher than in 2010. Nevertheless, due to volatility in the Russian TV advertising market, fueled by broader economic instability, together with a slowdown in advertiser demand and a risk of unsold inventory in the fourth quarter, CTC Media must provide revised outlook for its operating revenue growth and OIBDA margin for the full-year 2011. CTC Media now expects total operating revenue growth of between 9% and 11% year-on-year in ruble terms, when adjusting the 2010 revenues for commissions payable to Video International for direct sales of CTC Media’s advertising inventory in Russia.

As a result of the revised full-year revenue outlook and a $16.8 million impairment charge recognized in the third quarter of 2011, the Company now expects to report an OIBDA margin of between 31% and 33% for the full year 2011 (excluding any potential additional non-recurring non-cash asset impairment charges), which is equivalent to between 35% and 37% under the terms of the advertising sales structure in place prior to 2011. The negative effect on the full-year 2011 OIBDA margin from the impairment charge recognized in the third quarter of 2011 is estimated to be approximately 2 percentage points.

CTC Media’s capital expenditure (excluding acquisitions) is expected to amount to up to approximately $25 million in 2011, and primarily comprises maintenance capital expenditure, as well as investments in the Company’s play-out facility and new office space for the Company’s internal advertising sales house.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with US GAAP, the Company uses the following non-GAAP financial measures: OIBDA (on a consolidated and segment basis) and OIBDA margin, as well as certain adjusted figures described below. The Company also uses the following unaudited non-GAAP financial information for the historical periods covered on a basis comparable to the reporting in 2011: total operating revenues (on a consolidated and segment basis), advertising revenue, selling, general and administrative expenses, and total operating expenses (on a consolidated and segment basis). The presentation of this financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the accompanying financial tables included at the end of this release.

The Company uses these non-GAAP financial measures for financial and operational decision making and as a means to evaluate period-to-period comparisons. The Company believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding certain expenses that may not be indicative of its recurring core business operating results. These metrics are used by management to further its understanding of the Company’s operating performance in the ordinary, ongoing and customary course of operations. The Company also believes that these metrics provide investors and equity analysts with a useful basis for analyzing operating performance against historical data and the results of comparable companies.

OIBDA and OIBDA margin. OIBDA is defined as operating income before depreciation and amortization (exclusive of amortization of programming rights and sublicensing rights). OIBDA margin is defined as OIBDA divided by total operating revenues. The most directly comparable GAAP measures to OIBDA and OIBDA margin are operating income and operating income margin, respectively. Unlike operating income, OIBDA excludes depreciation and amortization, other than amortization of programming rights and sublicensing rights. The purchase of programming rights is the Company’s most significant expenditure that enables it to generate revenues, and OIBDA includes the impact of the amortization of these rights. Expenditures for capital items such as property, plant and equipment have a materially less significant impact on the Company’s ability to generate revenues. For this reason, the Company excludes the related depreciation expense for these items from OIBDA. Moreover, a significant portion of the Company’s intangible assets were acquired in business acquisitions. The amortization of intangible assets is therefore also excluded from OIBDA.

Adjusted financial measures. As described above, in the third quarter of 2011, CTC Media recognized $16.8 million in intangible asset impairment charges arising primarily from the impairment of the DTV trade name. CTC Media uses adjusted OIBDA (on a consolidated and segment basis), adjusted total operating expenses (before non-recurring items), adjusted operating income, adjusted net income before tax and noncontrolling interest, adjusted income tax expense, adjusted effective tax rate, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share, each of which has been adjusted to exclude the non-recurring charges described above, so as to permit management to assess and compare the operational performance of the business for the third quarters of 2010 and 2011, and the first nine months of 2010 and 2011, and to facilitate comparisons for future reporting periods.

Comparable-basis non-GAAP financial measures. Management uses comparable-basis historical information internally to compare financial results and believes that its presentation provides analysts and investors with additional useful information to understand the Company’s performance on a comparable period-to-period basis following the implementation of the Company’s current model of advertising sales starting from 2011. However, this information is not presented in accordance with US GAAP or Article 11 of Regulation S-X, relating to pro forma financial statements.
