Dover Motorsports, Inc. Reports Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2018

DOVER, Del.--()--Dover Motorsports, Inc. (NYSE: DVD) today reported its results for the three months ended March 31, 2018.

The Company historically reports a loss in the first quarter due to the seasonality of our motorsports business. No major events were promoted during the first quarter of 2018 or 2017; therefore, our revenues were minimal.

Operating and marketing expenses of $1,151,000 in the first quarter of 2018 increased from $1,054,000 in the first quarter of 2017 primarily due to the timing of advertising costs.

General and administrative expenses of $1,955,000 in the first quarter of 2018 decreased slightly from $2,020,000 in the first quarter of 2017 primarily from lower employee costs.

Depreciation expense increased to $878,000 in the first quarter of 2018 from $821,000 in the first quarter of 2017. The increase is due to assets placed in service during the past 12 months.

Costs to remove long-lived assets of $286,000 represent costs incurred during the first quarter of 2017 to remove the remaining grandstands, seats and structures that were taken out of service and written off in 2015.

As previously reported, we closed on the sale of a parcel of land in Nashville for net proceeds of approximately $5 million after closing costs, resulting in a gain of $2,512,000.

Net interest expense was $40,000 in the first quarter of 2018 compared to $48,000 in the first quarter of 2017.

Loss before income taxes was $1,349,000 for the first quarter of 2018 compared to $4,108,000 for the first quarter of 2017. The results for 2018 include the gain on sale of land and the results for 2017 include costs to remove long-lived assets. On an adjusted basis, excluding these items, loss before income taxes was $3,861,000 for the first quarter of 2018 compared to $3,822,000 for the first quarter of 2017.

The Company’s effective income tax rate was 26.5% in the first quarter of 2018 compared with 41.5% in the first quarter of 2017, lower primarily from the impact of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.

Net loss for the first quarter of 2018 was $992,000 or $.03 per diluted share compared with a loss of $2,405,000 or $.07 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2017. Net loss, adjusted for the aforementioned items, was $2,976,000 or $.08 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2018 compared to $2,238,000 or $.06 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2017.

At March 31, 2018, the Company’s total indebtedness was $500,000 compared with $6,360,000 at March 31, 2017.

During the first quarter this year, the Company repurchased 92,479 shares of its common stock on the open market at an average price of $2.11 per share.

225 acres of our Nashville Speedway property are under option for a total purchase price of approximately $12.4 million. The Company continues to hold over 1,000 acres of prime commercial real estate.

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 before income taxes, adjusted net loss and adjusted net loss per common share - basic and diluted are derived by adjusting amounts determined in accordance with GAAP for the aforementioned gain on sale of land and costs to remove 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 before income taxes, net loss or net loss per common share - basic and diluted, which are determined in accordance with GAAP.
