NOTE 1BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Business

 

Lindblad Expeditions Holdings, Inc. and its consolidated subsidiaries’ (the “Company” or “Lindblad”) mission is offering life-changing adventures around the world and pioneering innovative ways to allow its guests to connect with exotic and remote places. The Company currently operates a fleet of ten owned expedition ships and five seasonal charter vessels under the Lindblad brand, operates land-based, eco-conscious expeditions and active nature focused tours under the Natural Habitat, Inc. (“Natural Habitat”) and Off the Beaten Path, LLC (“Off the Beaten Path”) brands, designs handcrafted walking tours under the Classic Journeys, LLC (“Classic Journeys”) brand and operates luxury cycling and adventure tours under the DuVine Cycling + Adventure Company (“DuVine”) brand.

 

The Company operates the following two reportable business segments:

 

Lindblad Segment. The Lindblad segment primarily provides ship-based expeditions aboard customized, nimble and intimately-scaled vessels that are able to venture where larger cruise ships cannot, thus allowing Lindblad to offer up-close experiences in the planet’s wild and remote places and capitals of culture. Each expedition ship is fully equipped with state-of-the-art tools for in-depth exploration and the majority of expeditions involve travel to remote places with limited infrastructure and ports, such as Antarctica and the Arctic, or places that are best accessed by a ship, such as the Galápagos Islands, Alaska, Baja California’s Sea of Cortez and Panama, and foster active engagement by guests. The Company has an alliance with National Geographic Partners, LLC (“National Geographic”), which provides for lecturers and National Geographic experts, including photographers, writers, marine biologists, naturalists, field researchers and film crews, to join many of the Company’s expeditions.

 

Land Experiences Segment. The Land Experiences segment includes our four primarily land-based brands, Natural Habitat, DuVine, Off the Beaten Path and Classic Journeys.

 

 

Natural Habitat specializes in conservation-oriented adventures, providing life-enhancing forays into the natural world that feature wild habitats and the animals and people who live there. Natural Habitat’s travel adventures provide unparalleled access to the planet's most extraordinary wildlife, landscapes and cultures. Natural Habitat’s unique itineraries include access to private wildlife reserves, remote corners of national parks and distinctive, secluded and remote lodges and camps situated where wildlife viewing is best such as polar bear tours in Churchill, Canada, Alaskan grizzly bear adventures, small-group Galápagos Islands tours and African safaris. Natural Habitat has partnered with World Wildlife Fund (“WWF”) to offer conservation travel, which is sustainable travel that contributes to the protection of nature and wildlife.

   
 

DuVine specializes in luxury cycling and adventure tours around the world, providing immersive cultural and culinary experiences through thoughtfully designed itineraries led by expert local guides. Offerings primarily include tours throughout Europe, the United States and South America. Examples of DuVine's tours include cycling and culinary tours throughout the Bordeaux and Burgundy wine making regions, Tuscan truffle, porcini and chestnut harvest regions, Napa and Sonoma wine making regions and lakes and volcanos throughout Patagonia. DuVine's trips include top-quality gear and support and are tailored to riders of all abilities with an emphasis on exceptional food and wine experiences, along with boutique accommodations.

   
 

Off the Beaten Path provides active small-group and private custom journeys around the world with a long-standing focus on offering unique adventures and experiences throughout United States (“U.S.”) National Parks. In addition to other U.S.-based adventures such as ranch vacations and fly-fishing expeditions, Off the Beaten Path's small-group product offerings include international expeditions across Europe, Africa, Australia, Central and South America and the South Pacific such as hiking through the Dolomites, family adventures in Patagonia’s Lake District and experiencing the culture of Morocco. All Off the Beaten Path expeditions are defined by a focus on outdoor activity led by experienced, friendly guides.

   
 

Classic Journeys offers highly curated active small-group and private custom journeys centered around cinematic walks focused on engaging experiences that immerse guests into the history and culture of the places they are exploring and the people who live there, led by expert local guides in over 50 countries around the world. Classic Journeys’ tours are highlighted by luxury boutique accommodations and handcrafted itineraries curated through years of local connections such as experiencing Tuscan farmhouse kitchens, exploring Minoan ruins in Crete, or eating and dancing around a Berber encampment campfire.

The Company’s common stock is listed on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol “LIND”.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and footnotes have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) regarding unaudited interim financial information and include the accounts and transactions of the Company. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the Company’s financial statements for the periods presented. Operating results for the periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results of operations to be expected for the full year due to seasonality and other factors. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in the consolidated financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been omitted in accordance with the rules and regulations of the SEC for interim reporting. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements. These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and footnotes should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2021 contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the SEC on February 28, 2022 (the “2021 Annual Report”).

 

There have been no significant changes to the Company’s accounting policies from those disclosed in the 2021 Annual Report.

 

Ramp of Fleet Operations and COVID-19 Business Update

 

During the first quarter of 2022 the Company continued to ramp up its operations, providing expeditions to guests on nine of its ten owned vessels including trips to Antarctica, Baja California’s Sea of Cortez, Bahamas, Belize, Costa Rica and Panama, and the Galápagos. Due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus and the effects of travel restrictions around the world, the Company had previously suspended or rescheduled the majority of its expeditions departing between March 16, 2020 through May 31, 2021. Travel restrictions related to COVID-19 have diminished dramatically and the Company continues to work with local authorities on plans to operate itineraries in additional geographies during 2022 and 2023. Where travel restrictions remain, which now also includes a limited number of itineraries impacted by the Russia-Ukraine conflict, the Company works with guests to reschedule travel plans and refund payments or issue future travel certificates, as applicable.

 

The Company believes there are a variety of strategic advantages that enable it to deploy its ships safely and quickly, while mitigating the risk of COVID-19 as travel restrictions are lifted. The most notable is the size of its owned and operated vessels which range from 48 to 148 passengers, allowing for a highly controlled environment that includes stringent cleaning protocols. The small nature of the Company’s ships also allows it to efficiently and effectively test its guests and crew prior to boarding, or as otherwise needed. Additionally, all guests age five and older, crew and staff are required to be fully vaccinated and the majority of expeditions take place in remote locations where human interactions are limited, so there is less opportunity for external influence.

 

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

 

As of March 31, 2022, the Company had $154.8 million in unrestricted cash and $30.0 million in restricted cash primarily related to deposits on future travel originating from U.S. ports and credit card reserves. As of March 31, 2022, the Company had a total debt position of $584.1 million and was in compliance with all of its debt covenants.

 

On February 4, 2022, the Company issued $360.0 million of 6.75% senior secured notes, maturing 2027, and entered into a new $45.0 million revolving credit facility, including a letter of credit sub-facility in an aggregate principal amount of up to $5.0 million. Proceeds from the senior secured note issuance were used primarily to pay the outstanding borrowings under the Company's prior credit agreement, including the term facility, Main Street Loan and the revolving credit facility. The senior secured notes are guaranteed on a senior secured basis by the Company and certain of the Company’s subsidiaries and are collateralized by certain of the Company’s assets.

 

 

 

NOTE 2EARNINGS PER SHARE

 

Earnings per Common Share

 

Earnings (loss) per common share is computed using the two-class method related to its Series A Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock, par value of $0.0001 (“Preferred Stock”). Under the two-class method, undistributed earnings available to stockholders for the period are allocated on a pro rata basis to the common stockholders and to the holders of the Preferred Stock based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding and number of shares that could be issued upon conversion of the Preferred Stock.

 

Diluted earnings per share is computed using the weighted average number of common shares outstanding and, if dilutive, potential common shares outstanding during the period. Potential common shares consist of the dilutive incremental common shares associated with restricted stock awards and shares issuable upon the exercise of stock options, using the treasury stock method, and the potential common shares that could be issued from conversion of the Preferred Stock, using the if-converted method. When a net loss occurs, potential common shares have an anti-dilutive effect on earnings per share and such shares are excluded from the diluted earnings per share calculation.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, the Company incurred a net loss from operations, therefore basic and diluted net loss per share are the same for the periods. For the three months ended March 31, 2022, approximately 0.8 million restricted shares, 1.5 million shares issuable upon exercise of options and 9.3 million common shares issuable upon the conversion of the Preferred Stock were excluded from dilutive potential common shares for the periods as they were anti-dilutive. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, 0.9 million restricted shares, 0.5 million shares issuable upon exercise of options and 9.3 million common shares issuable upon conversion of the Preferred Stock were excluded from dilutive potential common shares for the periods as they were anti-dilutive.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, the Company calculated earnings (loss) per share as follows:

NOTE 3REVENUES

 

Customer Deposits and Contract Liabilities

 

The Company’s guests remit deposits in advance of tour embarkation. Guest deposits consist of guest ticket revenues as well as revenues from the sale of pre- and post-expedition excursions, hotel accommodations, land-based expeditions and air transportation to and from the ships. Guest deposits represent unearned revenues and are reported as unearned passenger revenues in the condensed consolidated balance sheets when received and are subsequently recognized as tour revenue over the duration of the trip. Accounting Standards Codification, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) defines a “contract liability” as an entity’s obligation to transfer goods or services to a customer for which the entity has received consideration from the customer. The Company does not consider guest deposits to be a contract liability until the guest no longer has the right, resulting from the passage of time, to cancel their reservation and receive a full refund. In conjunction with the suspension or rescheduling of expeditions, the Company provided guests an option of either a refund or future travel certificates, which in some instances exceeded the original cash deposit. The Company has recorded liabilities up to the amount of cash deposits. The additional value of any future travel certificates are being recognized as a discount when applied to future expeditions. The change in contract liabilities within unearned passenger revenues presented in our condensed consolidated balance sheets are as follows:

In 2021, the Company received a $27.0 million grant under the CERTS Act, which provided grants to eligible motorcoach, school bus, passenger vessel, and pilotage companies that have experienced annual revenue losses of 25 percent or more as result of COVID-19. The priority use of grant funds was required to be for payroll costs, though grants could be used for operating expenses and the repayment of debt accrued to maintain payroll. The Company accounted for the grant as a current liability on its balance sheet, as any amounts not appropriately used within one year of the grant date would have to be returned to the U.S. Treasury and recognized the grant in other income on the income statement as permitted expenses for the grant were incurred. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company recognized $11.6 million of the CERTS grant in other income for permitted payroll costs and ship operating expenses.

 

Loan Receivable

 

The Company’s loan receivable is recorded at amortized cost within other long-term assets. The Company reviewed its loan receivable for credit losses in connection with the preparation of its condensed consolidated financial statements for the period ended March 31, 2022. In evaluating the allowance for loan losses, the Company considered factors such as historical loss experience, the type and amount of loan, adverse situations that  may affect the borrower’s ability to repay and prevailing economic conditions. Based on these credit loss estimation and experience factors, the Company realized no allowance for loan loss for the three months ended March 31, 2022. The following is a rollforward of the loan receivable balance:

6.75% Notes

 

On February 4, 2022, the Company issued $360.0 million aggregate principal amount of 6.75% senior secured notes due 2027 (the “Notes”) in a private offering. The Notes bear interest at a rate of 6.75% per year, accruing from February 4, 2022 and interest on the Notes is payable semiannually in arrears on February 15 and August 15 of each year, beginning on August 15, 2022. The Notes will mature on February 15, 2027, subject to earlier repurchase or redemption. The Company used the net proceeds from the offering to prepay in full all outstanding borrowings under its prior credit agreement, including the term facility, Main Street Loan, and revolving credit facility, to pay any related premiums and to terminate in full its prior credit agreement and the commitments thereunder. The Notes are senior secured obligations of the Company and are guaranteed on a senior secured basis by the Company and certain of the Company’s subsidiaries (collectively, the “Guarantors”) and secured by first-priority pari passu liens, subject to permitted liens and certain exceptions, on substantially all the assets of the Company and the Guarantors. The Notes may be redeemed by the Company, at set redemption prices and premiums, plus accrued and unpaid interest, if any. 

 

The Notes contain covenants that, among other things, restrict the Company’s ability, and the ability of the Company’s restricted subsidiaries, to incur certain additional indebtedness and issue preferred stock and make certain dividend payments, distributions, investments and other restricted payments. These covenants are subject to a number of important exceptions and qualifications set forth in the Notes. 

 

New Revolving Credit Facility 

 

On February 4, 2022, the Company entered into a new senior secured revolving credit facility (the “New Revolving Credit Facility”), which provides for an aggregate principal amount of commitments of $45.0 million, maturing February 2027, including a letter of credit sub-facility in an aggregate principal amount of up to $5.0 million. The obligations under the New Revolving Credit Facility are guaranteed by the Company and the Guarantors and are secured by first-priority pari passu liens, subject to permitted liens and certain exceptions, on substantially all the assets of the Company and the Guarantors. Borrowings under the New Revolving Credit Facility, if any, will bear interest at a rate per annum equal to, at the Company’s option, an adjusted Secured Overnight Financing Rate (“SOFR”) rate plus a spread or a base rate plus a spread.

 

The New Revolving Credit Facility contains customary affirmative and negative covenants, as well as financial covenants and event of default provisions.

 

Senior Secured Credit Agreement

 

In January 2018, the Company entered into a senior secured credit agreement (the “First Export Credit Agreement”) making available to the Company a loan in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $107.7 million for the purpose of providing financing for up to 80% of the purchase price of the Company’s new ice class vessel, the National Geographic Endurance, delivered in March 2020. During June 2021, the Company amended its First Export Credit Agreement to, among other things, extend the deferral of scheduled amortization payments through December 2021 in the aggregate amount of $15.7 million, extend the waiver of its total net leverage ratio covenants through March 31, 2022, increase the interest rate spread by 50 basis points and annualize EBITDA used in its covenant calculation through December 31, 2022. The deferred principal payments began amortizing quarterly over three years starting March 2022. Certain other covenants continue to be more restrictive during the extended covenant waiver period. The First Export Credit Agreement, as amended, bears interest at a variable interest rate equal to three-month LIBOR plus a margin of 3.50% per annum, for an aggregated rate of 4.33% over the borrowing period covering March 31, 2022. 

 

In April 2019, the Company entered into a senior secured credit agreement (the “Second Export Credit Agreement”), to make available to the Company and subject to certain conditions, a loan in an aggregate principal amount not to exceed $122.8 million for the purpose of providing pre- and post-delivery financing for up to 80% of the purchase price of the Company’s new expedition ice-class cruise vessel, the National Geographic Resolution, delivered in September 2021 and borrowed $122.8 million under the Second Export Credit Agreement. During June 2021, the Company amended its Second Export Credit Agreement to, among other things, extend the waiver of its total net leverage ratio covenants through March 31, 2022, increase the interest rate spread by 50 basis points and annualize EBITDA used in its covenant calculation through December 31, 2022. Certain other covenants continue to be more restrictive during the extended covenant waiver period. The Second Export Credit Agreement, as amended, bears a variable interest rate equal to three-month LIBOR plus a margin of 3.50% per annum, for an aggregated rate of 4.43% over the borrowing period covering March 31, 2022.

Notes Payable

 

In connection with the Natural Habitat acquisition in May 2016, Natural Habitat issued a $2.5 million unsecured promissory note, amended in May 2020, to Benjamin L. Bressler, the founder of Natural Habitat, with an outstanding principal amount of $0.8 million as of March 31, 2022. The promissory note accrues interest at a rate of 1.44% annually, with interest payable every six months and the remaining principal payment due on December 22, 2022.

The outstanding balance will amortize at a rate of 15% on both December 2023 and December 2024, with the remaining balance due December 2025. The loan bears a variable interest rate equal to one-month LIBOR plus a spread of 3.00%, or 3.45% as of March 31, 2022. This loan may be voluntarily prepaid at any time and from time to time, without premium or penalty, other than customary “breakage costs” and fees for LIBOR-based loans.

Covenants

 

The Company’s Notes, New Revolving Credit Facility, First Export Credit Agreement and Second Export Credit Agreement contain financial and restrictive covenants that include among others, net leverage ratios, limits on additional indebtedness and limits on certain investments. As of March 31, 2022, the net leverage ratio covenant of the Company’s First Export Credit Agreement and Second Export Credit Agreement have been waived. The Company was in compliance with its covenants in effect as of March 31, 2022.

 

 

NOTE 6FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS AND FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

 

Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities

 

The Company’s derivative assets and liabilities consist principally of foreign exchange forward contracts and interest rate caps and are carried at fair value based on significant observable inputs (Level 2 inputs). Derivatives entered into by the Company are typically executed over-the-counter and are valued using internal valuation techniques, as quoted market prices are not readily available. The valuation technique and inputs depend on the type of derivative and the nature of the underlying exposure. The Company principally uses discounted cash flows along with fair value models that primarily use market observable inputs. These models take into account a variety of factors including, where applicable, maturity, currency exchange rates, interest rate yield curves and counterparty credit risks.

 

Currency Risk. The Company uses currency exchange forward contracts to manage its exposure to changes in currency exchange rates associated with certain of its non-U.S.-dollar denominated receivables and payables. The Company primarily economically hedges a portion of its current-year currency exposure to the Canadian and New Zealand dollars, the Brazilian Real, the South African Rand, the Euro and the British pound sterling. The fluctuations in the value of these forward contracts largely offset the impact of changes in the value of the underlying risk they economically hedge.

 

Interest Rate Risk. The Company previously used interest rate caps to manage the risk related to its previously existing variable rate corporate debt.

 

The Company recorded the effective portion of changes in the fair value of its cash flow hedges to other comprehensive income (loss), net of tax, and subsequently reclassified these amounts into earnings in the period during which the hedged transaction was recognized. Any changes in fair values of hedges that are determined to be ineffective are immediately reclassified from accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) into earnings. The Company reclassified $0.6 million from other comprehensive income (loss) to earnings for the period ended March 31, 2022, due to the termination of a cash flow hedge relationship between the Company’s interest rate caps and the Company’s underlying corporate variable rate debt, which was repaid during February 2022.

(b)

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, $0.4 million was recognized, net of tax, as a component of other comprehensive income (loss) within stockholders’ equity.

 

(c)

Gains (losses) related to derivative instruments are expected to be largely offset by (losses) gains on the underlying exposures being hedged. During the three months ended March 31, 2022, a gain of $0.1 million was recognized in gain (loss) on foreign currency. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, a gain of $0.1 million was recognized in gain (loss) on foreign currency.

 

In connection with the acquisition of Classic Journeys, the purchase agreement includes a contingent consideration earnout, see Note 11—Acquisitions, which is required to be recorded at fair value at each period. The possible contingent acquisition consideration earnout is either zero or $0.6 million, depending on the achievement of certain average annual net profits targets for the years ended December 31, 2022 and 2023 by the acquired operation. As of March 31, 2022, the contingent liability had a value of $0.2 million using a Level 3 valuation method, which was recorded in other long-term liabilities. 

 

The carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, accounts payable and accrued expenses, approximate fair value due to the short-term nature of these instruments. The carrying value of long-term debt approximates fair value given that the terms of the agreements were comparable to the market as of March 31, 2022. As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, the Company had no other significant liabilities that were measured at fair value on a recurring basis.

 

 

 

NOTE 7STOCKHOLDERS EQUITY

 

Stock and Warrant Repurchase Plan

 

The Company’s Board of Directors approved a stock and warrant repurchase plan (“Repurchase Plan”) in November 2015 and increased the repurchase plan to $35.0 million in November 2016. The Repurchase Plan authorizes the Company to purchase, from time to time, the Company’s outstanding common stock and previously outstanding warrants. Any shares purchased will be retired. The Repurchase Plan has no time deadline and will continue until otherwise modified or terminated at the sole discretion of the Company’s Board of Directors. These repurchases exclude shares repurchased to settle statutory employee tax withholding related to the exercise of stock options and vesting of stock awards. In March 2020, the Repurchase Plan was suspended due to the uncertain impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and it remains suspended due to restrictions related to the Main Street Expanded Loan Facility program. The Company has cumulatively repurchased 875,218 shares of common stock for $8.3 million and 6,011,926 warrants for $14.7 million, since plan inception. The remaining balance for the Repurchase Plan was $12.0 million as of March 31, 2022.

 

Preferred Stock

 

In August 2020, the Company issued and sold 85,000 shares of Preferred Stock for $1,000 per share for gross proceeds of $85.0 million. During the year ended December 31, 2021, 5,000 shares of Preferred Stock and related accumulated dividends were converted by the holder into 566,364 shares of the Company’s common stock. The Preferred Stock has senior and preferential ranking to the Company’s common stock. The Preferred Stock is entitled to cumulative dividends of 6.00% per annum, and for the first two years, the dividends will be paid-in-kind. After the second anniversary of the issuance date, the dividends may be paid-in-kind or be paid in cash at the Company’s option. At any time after the third anniversary of the issuance, the Company  may, at its option, convert all, but not less than all, of the Preferred Stock into common stock if the closing price of shares of common stock is at least 150% of the conversion price for 20 out of 30 consecutive trading days. The Preferred Stock is convertible at any time, at the holder’s election, into a number of shares of common stock of the Company equal to the quotient obtained by dividing the then-current accrued value by the conversion price of $9.50. The Preferred Stock deferred issuance costs were approximately $2.7 million as of March 31, 2022. The Company recorded accrued dividends for Preferred Stock of $1.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021. As of March 31, 2022, the 80,000 shares of Preferred Stock could be converted at the option of the holders into approximately 9.3 million shares of the Company’s common stock.

 

 

NOTE 8STOCK BASED COMPENSATION

 

The Company is authorized to issue up to 4.7 million shares of common stock under the 2021 Long-Term Incentive Plan (“the Plan”) which was approved by shareholders in June 2021. As of March 31, 2022, approximately 3.6 million shares were available to be granted under the Plan.

 

As of March 31, 2022 and December 31, 2021, options to purchase an aggregate of 1.5 million and 1.5 million shares of the Company’s common stock, respectively, with a weighted average exercise price of $14.37 and $10.30, respectively, were outstanding. As of March 31, 2022, 265,500 options were exercisable.

 

The Company recorded stock-based compensation expense of $1.8 million during the three months ended March 31, 2022, and $1.6 million during the three months ended March 31, 2021.

 

2022 Long-Term Incentive Compensation

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company granted 212,066 restricted stock units ("RSUs") with a weighted average grant price of $15.27. The RSUs will primarily vest equally over three years on the anniversary of the grant date, subject to the recipient’s continued employment or service with the Company on the applicable vesting date. The number of shares were determined based upon the closing price of our common stock on the date of the award.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2022, the Company awarded 56,209 market performance share units (“MSUs”) with a weighted average grant price of $15.08. The MSUs are market-based equity incentive awards based on a performance-multiplier of change in the stock price of the Company’s common stock between the grant date and March 31, 2025. The number of shares that will eventually be earned and vest may be more or less than the number of MSUs that are awarded, depending on the Company's common stock price, at a level ranging from 0% to 150%. The number of MSUs earned shall be determined and shall vest on March 31, 2025.

Natural Habitat Contingent Arrangement

 

In connection with the acquisition of Natural Habitat, Mr. Bressler, the founder of Natural Habitat, has an equity incentive opportunity to earn an award of options based on the future financial performance of Natural Habitat, where if the Final Year Equity Value of Natural Habitat, as defined in Mr. Bressler's amended employment agreement, exceeds $25.0 million, effective as of December 31, 2023, Mr. Bressler will be granted options with a fair value equal to 10.1% of such excess, subject to certain conditions.

 

 

NOTE 9RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

In May 2016, in connection with the Company's acquisition of Natural Habitat, Natural Habitat issued an unsecured promissory note, amended May 2020, to Mr. Bressler, the founder of Natural Habitat. See Note 5—Long-term Debt for more information.

 

 

NOTE 10INCOME TAXES

 

As of March 31, 2022, and December 31, 2021, the Company had no unrecognized tax benefits recorded. The Company’s policy is to record interest and penalties on uncertain tax positions as a component of income tax expense. The Company's effective tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2022 was a benefit of 0.4% versus a benefit of 7.6% for the three months ended March 31, 2021, primarily due to the expected results for 2022 compared to the 2021 due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company's operations.

 

 

NOTE 11ACQUISITIONS

 

To further expand the Company’s land-based experiential travel offerings and increase its addressable market, the Company completed three acquisitions during 2021. On February 1, 2021, the Company acquired 80.1% of the outstanding common stock of Off the Beaten Path, a land-based travel operator specializing in authentic national park experiences, on  March 3, 2021, the Company acquired 70% of the outstanding common stock of DuVine, an international luxury cycling and adventure company focused on exceptional food and wine experiences, and on October 13, 2021, the Company acquired 80.1% of Classic Journeys, a leading luxury walking tour company. 

 

The acquisitions had an aggregate purchase price of $23.6 million, including $1.8 million in Company stock and $0.2 million in deferred contingent consideration. The deferred contingent consideration has an earnout potential between zero and $0.6 million. The acquisitions were accounted for under purchase accounting and are included in the Company's consolidated financial statements since the date of the acquisitions. The Company preliminarily recorded $10.4 million in intangible assets related to tradenames and customer lists and $19.9 million in goodwill related to these acquisitions. The amount recorded for the intangible assets and goodwill is subject to possible adjustment when the valuation of Classic Journeys is finalized. 

 

 

NOTE 12COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

Redeemable Non-Controlling Interest

 

The Company has controlling interests in its Natural Habitat, Off the Beaten Path, DuVine and Classic Journeys consolidated subsidiaries. The noncontrolling interests are subject to put/call agreements. The put options enable the minority holders, but do not obligate them, to sell the remaining interests to the Company. The Company has call options which enable it, but does not obligate it, to acquire the remaining interests in the subsidiaries, subject to certain dates, expirations and similar redemption value purchase measurements as the put options.

 

15

 

Since the redemption of the noncontrolling interests are not solely in the Company’s control, the Company is required to record the redeemable noncontrolling interest outside of stockholders’ equity but after its total liabilities. In addition, if it is probable that the instrument will become redeemable, as such solely due to the passage of time, the redeemable noncontrollable interest should be adjusted to the redemption value via one of two measurement methods. The Company elected the income classification-excess adjustment and accretion methods for recognizing changes in the redemption value of the put options. Under this methodology, a calculation of the present value of the redemption value is compared to the carrying value of the redeemable noncontrolling interest and the carrying value of the redeemable noncontrolling interest is adjusted to the redemption value’s present value. Any adjustments to the carrying value of the redeemable noncontrolling interest, up to the redemption value of the noncontrolling interest, are classified to retained earnings. Adjustments in excess of the redemption value of the noncontrolling interest, are treated as a decrease to net income available to common stockholders.

 

The redemption value of the put options were determined using a discounted cash flow model. The redemption values were adjusted to their present value using the Company’s weighted average cost of capital.

NOTE 13SEGMENT INFORMATION

 

The Company is primarily a specialty cruise and experiential travel operator with operations in two reportable segments, Lindblad and Land Experiences. The Company evaluates the performance of the business based largely on the results of its operating segments. The chief operating decision maker and management review operating results monthly, and base operating decisions on the total results at a consolidated level, as well as at a segment level. The reports provided to the Board of Directors are at a consolidated level and contain information regarding the separate results of both segments.

 

The Company evaluates the performance of its business segments based largely on tour revenues and operating income, without allocating other income and expenses, net, income taxes and interest expense, net. For the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021, operating results for the Company’s reportable segments were as follows:

Business Overview

 

We provide expedition cruising and land-based adventure travel fostering a spirit of exploration and discovery, using itineraries featuring up-close encounters with wildlife and nature, history and culture and promote guest empowerment, human connections and interactivity. Our mission is to offer life-changing adventures around the world and pioneering innovative ways to allow our guests to connect with exotic and remote places. 

 

We currently operate a fleet of ten owned expedition ships and operate five seasonal charter vessels under the Lindblad Expeditions, LLC. (“Lindblad”) brand. Each expedition ship is fully equipped with state-of-the-art tools for in-depth exploration and the majority of our expeditions involve travel to remote places, such as voyages to the Arctic, Antarctic, the Galápagos Islands, Alaska, Baja’s Sea of Cortez, the South Pacific, Costa Rica and Panama. We have a longstanding relationship with the National Geographic Society dating back to 2004, which is based on a shared interest in exploration, research, technology and conservation. This relationship includes a co-selling, co-marketing and branding arrangement whereby our owned vessels carry the National Geographic name and National Geographic sells our expeditions through its internal travel division. We collaborate with National Geographic on voyage planning to enhance the guest experience by having National Geographic experts, including photographers, writers, marine biologists, naturalists, field researchers and film crews, join our expeditions. Guests are able to interface with these experts through lectures, excursions, dining and other experiences throughout their voyage.

 

We operate land-based nature adventure travel expeditions around the globe, with unique itineraries designed to offer intimate encounters with nature and the planet’s wild destinations and the animals and people who live there.

 

Natural Habitat, Inc. (“Natural Habitat”) provides eco-conscious expeditions and nature-focused, small-group experiences that include polar bear tours in Churchill, Canada, Alaskan grizzly bear adventures, small-group Galápagos Islands tours and African safaris. Natural Habitat has partnered with World Wildlife Fund (“WWF”) to offer conservation travel, which is sustainable travel that contributes to the protection of nature and wildlife. 

 

DuVine Cycling + Adventure Company (“DuVine”) provides intimate cycling adventures and travel experiences, led by expert guides, with a focus on connecting with local character and culture, including high-quality local cuisine and accommodations. International cycling tours include the exotic Costa Rican rainforests, the rocky coasts of Ireland and the vineyards of Spain, while cycling adventures in the United States include cycling beneath the California redwoods, pedaling through Vermont farmland and wine tastings in the world-class vineyards of Napa and Sonoma.

 

Off the Beaten Path, LLC (“Off the Beaten Path”) provides small group travel, led by local, experienced guides, with distinct focus on wildlife, hiking national parks and culture. Off the Beaten Path offerings include insider national park experiences in the Rocky Mountains, Desert Southwest, and Alaska, as well as unique trips across Europe, Africa, Australia, Central and South America and the South Pacific.

 

Classic Journeys, LLC (“Classic Journeys”) offers highly curated active small-group and private custom journeys centered around cinematic walks led by expert local guides in over 50 countries around the world. These walking tours are highlighted by luxury boutique accommodations and handcrafted itineraries that immerse guests into the history and culture of the places they are exploring and the people who live there.

 

We operate two segments including the Lindblad segment, which consists of the operations of our Lindblad brand, and the Land Experiences segment, consisting of our Natural Habitat, DuVine, Off the Beaten Path and Classic Journeys brands.

 

 

2022 First Quarter Highlights

 

During the first quarter of 2022 the Company continued to ramp its operations, providing expeditions to guests on nine of its ten owned vessels including trips to Antarctica, Baja California’s Sea of Cortez, Bahamas, Belize, Costa Rica and Panama, and the Galápagos.

 

On February 4, 2022, we issued $360.0 million of 6.75% senior secured notes due 2027 and entered into a new $45.0 million revolving credit facility, which remains undrawn and matures February 2027. We used the proceeds from the notes to prepay in full all outstanding borrowings under our prior term loan, including the Main Street Loan, and revolving credit facility, and paid all related premiums, terminating in full our existing credit agreement and the commitments thereunder.

 

On February 25, 2022, our cupos necessary for tours in the Galápagos Islands were contractually renewed for a 20-year period.

 

Ramp of Fleet Operations and COVID-19 Business Update 

 

During the first quarter of 2022, we continued to ramp up our operations, providing expeditions to guests on nine of our ten owned vessels including trips to Antarctica, Baja California’s Sea of Cortez, Bahamas, Belize, Costa Rica and Panama, and the Galápagos. Due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus and the effects of travel restrictions around the world, we had previously suspended or rescheduled the majority of our expeditions departing between March 16, 2020 through May 31, 2021. Travel restrictions related to COVID-19 have diminished dramatically and we continue to work with local authorities on plans to operate itineraries in additional geographies during 2022 and 2023. Where travel restrictions remain, which now also includes a limited number of itineraries impacted by the Russia-Ukraine conflict, we work with guests to reschedule travel plans and refund payments or issue future travel certificates, as applicable.

 

We believe there are a variety of strategic advantages that enable us to deploy our ships safely and quickly, while mitigating the risk of COVID-19 as travel restrictions are lifted. The most notable is the size of our owned and operated vessels which range from 48 to 148 passengers, allowing for a highly controlled environment that includes stringent cleaning protocols. The small nature of our ships also allows us to efficiently and effectively test our guests and crew prior to boarding, or as otherwise needed. Additionally, all guests age five and older, crew and staff are required to be fully vaccinated and the majority of expeditions take place in remote locations where human interactions are limited, so there is less opportunity for external influence.

 

Bookings Trends

 

We have substantial advanced reservations for future travel despite some continued impact from the COVID-19 virus, including elevated cancellations and softness in near-term demand, as well as some impact related to itinerary changes due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict. Bookings for the second half of 2022 are 50% ahead of the bookings for the second half of 2019 at the same point three years ago and 32% ahead of the bookings for 2020 two years ago.

 

Balance Sheet and Liquidity

 

As of March 31, 2022, we had $154.8 million in unrestricted cash and $30.0 million in restricted cash primarily related to deposits on future travel originating from U.S. ports and credit card reserves. Our total debt position was $584.1 million, and we were in compliance with all of our debt covenants currently in effect.

 

As we continue to ramp operations, our monthly cash usage will increase as we incur costs in operating expeditions, preparing additional ships for return to service, spending to market and advertise upcoming expeditions and trips. We also anticipate a significant increase in guest payments as we receive final payments for upcoming expeditions as well as deposits for new reservations for future travel. However, there can be no assurance that cash flows from operations will be available to fund future obligations or that we will not experience delays or cancellations with respect to the resumption of our operations.

 

The discussion and analysis of our results of operations and financial condition are organized as follows:

 

 

a description of certain line items and operational and financial metrics we utilize to assist us in managing our business;

     
 

results and a comparable discussion of our consolidated and segment results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2022 and 2021;

     
 

a discussion of our liquidity and capital resources, including future capital and contractual commitments and potential funding sources; and

     

 

 

a review of our critical accounting policies.

 

Financial Presentation

 

Description of Certain Line Items

 

Tour revenues

 

Tour revenues consist of the following:

 

 

Guest ticket revenues recognized from the sale of guest tickets; and

     
 

Other tour revenues from the sale of pre- or post-expedition excursions, hotel accommodations, air transportation to and from the ships and excursions, goods and services rendered onboard that are not included in guest ticket prices, trip insurance, and cancellation fees.

 

Cost of tours

 

Cost of tours includes the following:

 

 

Direct costs associated with revenues, including cost of pre- or post-expedition excursions, hotel accommodations, and land-based expeditions, air and other transportation expenses, and cost of goods and services rendered onboard;

     
 

Payroll costs and related expenses for shipboard and expedition personnel;

     
 

Food costs for guests and crew, including complimentary food and beverage amenities for guests;

     
 

Fuel costs and related costs of delivery, storage and safe disposal of waste; and

     
 

Other tour expenses, such as land costs, port costs, repairs and maintenance, equipment expense, drydock, ship insurance, and charter hire costs.

 

Selling and marketing

 

Selling and marketing expenses include commissions, royalties and a broad range of advertising and promotional expenses.

 

General and administrative

 

General and administrative expenses include the cost of shoreside vessel support, reservations and other administrative functions, including salaries and related benefits, credit card commissions, professional fees and rent.

 

Operational and Financial Metrics

 

We use a variety of operational and financial metrics, including non-GAAP financial measures, such as Adjusted EBITDA, Net Yields, Occupancy and Net Cruise Costs, to enable us to analyze our performance and financial condition. We utilize these financial measures to manage our business on a day-to-day basis and believe that they are the most relevant measures of performance. Some of these measures are commonly used in the cruise and tourism industry to evaluate performance. We believe these non-GAAP measures provide expanded insight to assess revenue and cost performance, in addition to the standard GAAP-based financial measures. There are no specific rules or regulations for determining non-GAAP measures, and as such, they may not be comparable to measures used by other companies within the industry.

 

The presentation of non-GAAP financial information should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for, or superior to, the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. You should read this discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations together with the condensed consolidated financial statements and the related notes thereto also included within.

 

 

Adjusted EBITDA is net income (loss) excluding depreciation and amortization, net interest expense, other income (expense), income tax (expense) benefit, (gain) loss on foreign currency, (gain) loss on transfer of assets, reorganization costs, and other supplemental adjustments. Other supplemental adjustments include certain non-operating items such as stock-based compensation, executive severance costs, the National Geographic fee amortization, debt refinancing costs, acquisition-related expenses and other non-recurring charges. We believe Adjusted EBITDA, when considered along with other performance measures, is a useful measure as it reflects certain operating drivers of the business, such as sales growth, operating costs, selling and administrative expense, and other operating income and expense. We believe Adjusted EBITDA helps provide a more complete understanding of the underlying operating results and trends and an enhanced overall understanding of our financial performance and prospects for the future. Adjusted EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of liquidity or cash flows from operations or a measure comparable to net income as it does not take into account certain requirements, such as unearned passenger revenues, capital expenditures and related depreciation, principal and interest payments, and tax payments. Our use of Adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to other companies within the industry.

 

The following metrics apply to our Lindblad segment:

 

Adjusted Net Cruise Cost represents Net Cruise Cost adjusted for Non-GAAP other supplemental adjustments which include certain non-operating items such as stock-based compensation, the National Geographic fee amortization, and acquisition-related expenses.

 

Available Guest Nights is a measurement of capacity and represents double occupancy per cabin (except single occupancy for a single capacity cabin) multiplied by the number of cruise days for the period. We also record the number of guest nights available on our limited land programs in this definition.

 

Gross Cruise Cost represents the sum of cost of tours plus, selling and marketing expenses, and general and administrative expenses.

 

Gross Yield per Available Guest Night represents tour revenues less insurance proceeds divided by Available Guest Nights.

 

Guest Nights Sold represents the number of guests carried for the period multiplied by the number of nights sailed within the period.

 

Maximum Guests is a measure of capacity and represents the maximum number of guests in a period and is based on double occupancy per cabin (except single occupancy for a single capacity cabin).

 

Net Cruise Cost represents Gross Cruise Cost excluding commissions and certain other direct costs of guest ticket revenues and other tour revenues.

 

Net Cruise Cost Excluding Fuel represents Net Cruise Cost excluding fuel costs.

 

Net Yield represents tour revenues less insurance proceeds, commissions and direct costs of other tour revenues.

 

Net Yield per Available Guest Night represents Net Yield divided by Available Guest Nights.

 

Number of Guests represents the number of guests that travel with us in a period.

 

Occupancy is calculated by dividing Guest Nights Sold by Available Guest Nights.

 

Voyages represent the number of ship expeditions completed during the period.

 

Foreign Currency Translation

 

The U.S. dollar is the functional currency in our foreign operations and re-measurement adjustments and gains or losses resulting from foreign currency transactions are recorded as foreign exchange gains or losses in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.

 

 

Seasonality

 

Traditionally, our Lindblad brand tour revenues are mildly seasonal, historically larger in the first and third quarters. The seasonality of our operating results fluctuates due to our vessels being taken out of service for scheduled maintenance or drydocking, which is typically during nonpeak demand periods, in the second and fourth quarters. Our drydock schedules are subject to cost and timing differences from year-to-year due to the availability of shipyards for certain work, drydock locations based on ship itineraries, operating conditions experienced especially in the polar regions and the applicable regulations of class societies in the maritime industry, which require more extensive reviews periodically. Drydocking impacts operating results by reducing tour revenues and increasing cost of tours. Our Natural Habitat, DuVine, Off the Beaten Path and Classic Journeys brands are seasonal businesses, with the majority of Natural Habitat’s tour revenue recorded in the third and fourth quarters from its summer season departures and polar bear tours, while the majority of Off the Beaten Path, DuVine and Classic Journeys’ revenues are recorded during the second and third quarters from their spring and summer season departures.

At the Lindblad segment, general and administrative expenses increased $4.6 million from the prior year period primarily due to higher personnel costs associated with the ramp in operations and higher credit card commissions due to the strong booking environment and increased stock-based compensation expense. At the Land Experiences segment, general and administrative expenses increased $2.2 million, primarily due to increased personnel costs related to operating additional trips, higher credit card commissions due to the strong booking environment and the inclusion of a full quarter of the results of Off the Beaten Path and DuVine, which were acquired during the first quarter of 2021, and Classic Journeys which was acquired during the fourth quarter of 2021. 

 

 

Selling and Marketing

 

Selling and marketing expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2022 increased $9.8 million to $12.3 million, compared to $2.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021. At the Lindblad segment, selling and marketing expenses increased $8.6 million primarily due to higher commissions related to the ramp in operations and increased advertising spend to drive future growth. At the Land Experiences segment, selling and marketing expenses increased $1.2 million, primarily due to increased marketing spend associated with the ramp up in operations and the inclusion of the results of Off the Beaten Path and DuVine, which were acquired during the first quarter of 2021, and Classic Journeys which was acquired during the fourth quarter of 2021.

 

Depreciation and Amortization

 

Depreciation and amortization expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2022 increased $2.9 million, or 36%, to $11.2 million, compared to $8.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, primarily due to depreciation for the National Geographic Resolution placed into service in September 2021, depreciation of technology assets placed into service to support our digital initiatives, accelerated depreciation for the National Geographic Islander, which will be replaced later in 2022, and the amortization of acquired intangibles.

 

Other Income (Expense)

 

Other expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2022, increased $2.5 million to $8.1 million from $5.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, primarily due to the following:

 

  A $3.0 million increase in interest expense, net to $8.7 million in 2022, primarily due to additional drawdowns throughout 2021 under our export credit agreements related to the delivery of the National Geographic Resolution, as well as increased principal and higher rates on our debt facilities. 
     
 

A net gain of $0.6 million primarily due to recognition of $11.6 million in other income related to expenses covered under the CERTS grant received in 2021, partially offset by the write-off of $9.0 million of deferred financing costs and $1.9 million of fees and other expenses related to the repayment of our prior credit agreement, including the term facility, Main Street Loan and revolving credit facility.
