Madison Square Garden Sports Corp. Reports Fiscal 2024 Second Quarter Results

NEW YORK, Feb. 6, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Madison Square Garden Sports Corp. (NYSE: MSGS) today reported financial results for the fiscal second quarter ended December 31, 2023.

With the 2023-24 New York Knicks ("Knicks") and New York Rangers ("Rangers") seasons now more than halfway complete, the Company has continued to see positive operating momentum across its business. During the fiscal 2024 second quarter, average per-game revenues for nearly every key revenue category - including tickets, suites, food, beverage and merchandise - exceeded results for the prior year period. In addition, local and national media rights fees were higher, primarily due to contractual rate increases.

In the fiscal 2024 second quarter, the Knicks and Rangers played a combined nine fewer regular season home games as compared to the prior year period. As a result, the Company generated revenues of $326.9 million, a decrease of $26.8 million, or 8%, as compared to the prior year period. In addition, the Company reported operating income of $28.8 million, a decrease of $22.7 million, or 44%, and adjusted operating income of $37.0 million, a decrease of $27.4 million, or 43%, both as compared to the prior year period.(1)

Madison Square Garden Sports Corp. Executive Chairman James L. Dolan said, "Enthusiasm for the Knicks and Rangers from fans and partners alike remains strong, with our Company seeing growth in average per-game revenues in the second quarter. We remain confident in the value of owning premier professional sports franchises and our ability to generate long-term value for shareholders."

See page 3 of this earnings release for the definition of adjusted operating income (loss) included in the discussion of non-GAAP financial measures. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023, the Company amended this definition so that the impact of the non-cash portion of operating lease costs (which was $9.0 million and $9.4 million for the three and six months ended December 31, 2023, respectively, and $12.2 million and $12.7 million for the three and six months ended December 31, 2022, respectively) related to the Company's arena license agreements with Madison Square Garden Entertainment Corp. ("MSG Entertainment") is no longer excluded in all periods presented.

Summary of Reported Results from Operations
For the fiscal 2024 second quarter, revenues of $326.9 million decreased $26.8 million, or 8%, as compared to the prior year period. This decrease was primarily due to the Knicks and Rangers playing a combined nine fewer regular season home games at the Madison Square Garden Arena ("The Garden") during the fiscal 2024 second quarter as compared to the prior year period. As a result, pre/regular season ticket-related revenues, suite revenues and sponsorship and signage revenues all decreased as compared to the prior year period. The decrease in revenues was partially offset by higher local media rights fees and revenues from league distributions.

Pre/regular season ticket-related revenues decreased $19.0 million, as compared to the prior year period, primarily due to the Knicks and Rangers playing fewer games at The Garden during the fiscal 2024 second quarter, partially offset by higher average per-game revenue.

Suite revenues decreased $5.9 million, as compared to the prior year period, primarily due to the Knicks and Rangers playing fewer games at The Garden during the fiscal 2024 second quarter, partially offset by higher net sales of suite products, including revenue related to new premium hospitality offerings which were made available at the start of the 2023-24 seasons.

Sponsorship and signage revenues decreased $5.8 million as compared to the prior year period, primarily due to the Knicks and Rangers playing fewer games at The Garden during the fiscal 2024 second quarter.

Local media rights fees increased $2.0 million as compared to the prior year period, primarily due to contractual rate increases. In addition, revenues from league distributions increased $1.7 million as compared to the prior year period, primarily due to higher national media rights fees, partially offset by lower other league distributions.

Direct operating expenses of $232.2 million increased $6.5 million, or 3%, as compared to the prior year period. This increase was primarily driven by higher team personnel compensation of $12.2 million and higher net provisions for league revenue sharing expense (net of escrow and excluding playoffs) of $2.6 million, both as compared to the prior year period. These increases were partially offset by a decrease in operating lease costs under the arena license agreements with MSG Entertainment of $7.3 million due to the Knicks and Rangers playing fewer games at The Garden during the fiscal 2024 second quarter, and other net cost decreases.

Selling, general and administrative expenses of $65.1 million decreased $10.6 million, or 14%, as compared to the prior year period. This decrease was primarily driven by lower employee compensation and related benefits of $7.8 million, mainly due to executive management transition costs recognized in the prior year period, and lower other general and administrative expenses.

Operating income of $28.8 million decreased $22.7 million, or 44%, as compared to the prior year period, primarily due to the decrease in revenues and, to a lesser extent, the increase in direct operating expenses, partially offset by lower selling, general and administrative expenses. Adjusted operating income of $37.0 million decreased $27.4 million, or 43%, as compared to the prior year period, primarily due to the decrease in revenues and, to a lesser extent, the increase in direct operating expenses, partially offset by a decrease in selling, general and administrative expenses.

About Madison Square Garden Sports Corp.
Madison Square Garden Sports Corp. (MSG Sports) is a leading professional sports company, with a collection of assets that includes the New York Knicks (NBA) and the New York Rangers (NHL), as well as two development league teams - the Westchester Knicks (NBAGL) and the Hartford Wolf Pack (AHL). MSG Sports also operates a professional sports team performance center - the MSG Training Center in Greenburgh, NY. More information is available at www.msgsports.com.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures
During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023, the Company amended its definition of adjusted operating income (loss) so that the impact of the non-cash portion of operating lease costs related to the Company's arena license agreements with MSG Entertainment is no longer excluded in the calculation of adjusted operating income (loss) in all periods presented.

We define adjusted operating income (loss), which is a non-GAAP financial measure, as operating income (loss) excluding (i) depreciation, amortization and impairments of property and equipment, goodwill and other intangible assets, (ii) share-based compensation expense or benefit, (iii) restructuring charges or credits, (iv) gains or losses on sales or dispositions of businesses, (v) the impact of purchase accounting adjustments related to business acquisitions, and (vi) gains and losses related to the remeasurement of liabilities under the Company's Executive Deferred Compensation Plan. Because it is based upon operating income (loss), adjusted operating income (loss) also excludes interest expense (including cash interest expense) and other non-operating income and expense items. We believe that the exclusion of share-based compensation expense or benefit allows investors to better track the performance of our business without regard to the settlement of an obligation that is not expected to be made in cash. In addition, we believe that the exclusion of gains and losses related to the remeasurement of liabilities under the Company's Executive Deferred Compensation Plan provides investors with a clearer picture of the Company's operating performance given that, in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP"), gains and losses related to the remeasurement of liabilities under the Company's Executive Deferred Compensation Plan are recognized in Operating (income) loss whereas gains and losses related to the remeasurement of the assets under the Company's Executive Deferred Compensation Plan, which are equal to and therefore fully offset the gains and losses related to the remeasurement of liabilities, are recognized in Miscellaneous income (expense), net, which is not reflected in Operating income (loss).

We believe adjusted operating income (loss) is an appropriate measure for evaluating the operating performance of our Company. Adjusted operating income (loss) and similar measures with similar titles are common performance measures used by investors and analysts to analyze our performance. Internally, we use revenues and adjusted operating income (loss) as the most important indicators of our business performance, and evaluate management's effectiveness with specific reference to these indicators. Adjusted operating income (loss) should be viewed as a supplement to and not a substitute for operating income (loss), net income (loss), cash flows from operating activities, and other measures of performance and/or liquidity presented in accordance with GAAP. Since adjusted operating income (loss) is not a measure of performance calculated in accordance with GAAP, this measure may not be comparable to similar measures with similar titles used by other companies. For a reconciliation of operating income (loss) to adjusted operating income (loss), please see page 5 of this release.

During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2023, the Company amended its definition of adjusted operating income (loss) so that the impact of the non-cash portion of operating lease costs related to the Company's arena license agreements with MSG Entertainment is no longer excluded. Pursuant to GAAP, recognition of operating lease costs is recorded on a straight-line basis over the term of the agreement based upon the value of total future payments under the arrangement. As a result, operating lease costs is comprised of a contractual cash component plus or minus a non-cash component for each period presented. Adjusted operating income includes operating lease costs of (i) $15,409 and $16,238 of expense paid in cash for the three and six months ended December 31, 2023, respectively, and $19,416 and $20,221 of expense paid in cash for the three and six months ended December 31, 2022, respectively, and (ii) a non-cash expense of $8,953 and $9,435 for the three and six months ended December 31, 2023, respectively, and $12,202 and $12,708 for the three and six months ended December 31, 2022, respectively.
