Washington, DC, March 9, 2021 – Stagwell Media LP, which has entered into a definitive transaction agreement to combine its businesses with MDC Partners (Nasdaq: MDCA), announced financial results for its holding company Stagwell Marketing Group LLC (“Stagwell” or the “Company”) for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2020.

Stagwell Partner Jay Leveton stated, “2020 was a year of significant growth for Stagwell despite a challenging environment brought on by the pandemic. Our position at the forefront of technology and digital marketing led to substantial increases in revenue and EBITDA. As the operating environment improves in 2021 and we accelerate to an even more digital world, we remain uniquely positioned as a disruptor that solves the challenges modern marketers face.”

“Strategic investments in growth lines of business as well as prudent cost management from our centralized operating structure led to strong revenue growth and cash flow in 2020. The pandemic significantly impacted some of our brands in the travel and entertainment verticals, however our diversified assets, paired with an established track recorded of growth and profitability, performed well in 2020,” remarked Stagwell Chief Financial Officer Ryan Greene.

Three Months Ended December 31, 2020 Results

Stagwell GAAP revenue grew $126.1 million, or 67.5%, to $313.1 million. This included organic revenue growth of $111.9 million, or 59.9%. Inorganic revenue was $13.8 million and we recorded a foreign exchange benefit of $0.5 million.

Stagwell GAAP revenue includes third-party direct costs, which are expenses incurred with third-party vendors when Stagwell acts as the principal when performing services for its clients.

Net revenue, after deducting third-party direct costs, was $199.2 million as compared to $157.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2019.

Net income was $32.7 million as compared to net income of $3.4 million in the prior year period, an increase of $29.3 million, or 857.5%. This was primarily due to an increase in net revenue of $42.2 million less increases to operating expense other than third-party direct costs of $18.4 million, which resulted in an increase to operating income of $23.8 million, or 158.7%. Additionally, the Company reported a decrease to its non-operating expenses totaling $5.4 million, which was largely due to reductions to provision for income taxes and interest expense, net of $4.0 million and $2.6 million, respectively.

Adjusted EBITDA was $64.2 million as compared to $33.5 million in the prior year period, an increase of 91.7%, primarily due to strong performance in Stagwell’s Communications, Public Affairs and Advocacy segment. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA margin was 20.5%, up from 17.9% in the prior year period.

Twelve Months Ended December 31, 2020 Results

Stagwell GAAP revenue grew $259.3 million, or 41.3%, to $888.0 million. This included organic revenue growth of $182.7 million, or 29.1%. Inorganic revenue was $76.1 million, and we recorded a foreign exchange gain of $0.6 million. Net revenue after deducting third-party direct costs was $633.2 million as compared to $562.8 million in 2019.

Net income was $71.5 million as compared to net income of $20.7 million in the prior year period, an increase of $50.7 million, or 244.7%. This was primarily due to an increase in net revenue of $70.4 million less increases to operating expense other than third-party direct costs of $27.3 million, which resulted in an increase to operating income of $43.0 million, or 105.8%. Additionally, non-operating expenses decreased $7.7 million, which was largely due to reductions to provision for income taxes and interest expense, net of $4.1 million and $2.4 million, respectively.

Adjusted EBITDA was $143.2 million as compared to $98.8 million in the prior year period, an increase of 44.8%, primarily driven by the strong performance in Stagwell’s Communications, Public Affairs and Advocacy segment. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA margin was 16.1%, up from 15.7% in the prior year period.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Estimated Results

Stagwell plans to provide its audited financial results for the year ended December 31, 2020 in an amendment to MDC’s previously filed registration statement on Form S-4. Stagwell provided its financial results for the year to date period ended September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019, along with the annual audited financial results for the year ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 in MDC’s previously filed registration statement on Form S-4. The quarterly results presented in these materials for the 2020 period are based on calculations or figures prepared internally, and have not been reviewed by Stagwell’s independent auditor. Therefore the results presented in this press release for the year and three months ended December 31, 2020, including the non-GAAP reconciliation tables are estimates only and are subject to revisions that could differ materially from our audited results. For more information regarding factors that could cause actual results to differ from those described above, please see “Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements”.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Stagwell has included in this press release certain financial results that the Securities and Exchange Commission defines as “non-GAAP financial measures.” Management believes that such non-GAAP financial measures, when read in conjunction with the Company’s reported results, can provide useful supplemental information for investors analyzing period to period comparisons of the Company’s results. Such non-GAAP financial measures include the following:

Net Revenue: “Net Revenue” is GAAP Revenue less third-party direct costs, which includes certain costs where the Company act as the principal when providing services to its customers. Third-party direct costs include certain portions of digital media, content production and data acquisition costs and other direct expenses incurred when completing work for customers.

Inorganic Revenue: “Inorganic Revenue” consists of (i) for acquisitions during the current year, the revenue effect from such acquisitions as if the acquisition had been owned during the equivalent period in the prior year and (ii) for acquisitions during the previous year, the revenue effect from such acquisitions as if they had been owned during that entire year (or same period as the current reportable period), taking into account their respective pre-acquisition revenues for the applicable periods.​

Organic Revenue​: Organic revenue is calculated by subtracting both the foreign exchange and inorganic components from total revenue growth. “Organic revenue growth” and “organic revenue decline” refers to the positive or negative changes in revenue that were not attributable to the effects of foreign exchange or acquired run rate revenue from acquisitions, which is defined in the inorganic revenue definition above. The organic revenue growth (decline) component reflects the constant currency impact of (a) the change in revenue of the Company’s Brands that have been held throughout each of the comparable periods presented, and (b) inorganic revenue. ​

Adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA is a non-GAAP financial measure that represents net income adjusted for (a) interest expense, (b) provision for income taxes, (c) depreciation and amortization, (d) other income (expenses), (e) equity in earnings (losses) of unconsolidated affiliates, (f) deferred acquisition consideration adjustments, (g) and other items, net, which includes items such as acquisition-related expenses, other non-recurring items and other restructuring costs.

Included in the Company’s press release and supplemental management presentation are tables reconciling Stagwell’s GAAP results to arrive at certain of these non-GAAP financial measures.
