PRIMEDIA INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements (Unaudited)
(in thousands, except share and per share amounts)

1.   Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation

PRIMEDIA Inc., together with its subsidiaries, is herein referred to as either “PRIMEDIA” or the “Company” unless the context implies otherwise. In the opinion of the Company’s management, the condensed consolidated financial statements present fairly the consolidated financial position of the Company as of March 31, 2007 and December 31, 2006, the results of consolidated operations of the Company for the three months ended March 31, 2007 and 2006 and consolidated cash flows of the Company for the three months ended March 31, 2007 and 2006. The adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. The condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2006 has been derived from the Company’s audited consolidated balance sheet included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2006. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. These statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s annual consolidated financial statements and related notes for the year ended December 31, 2006, which are included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2006. The operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2007 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for a full year. Certain amounts in the prior periods’ condensed consolidated statement of operations and related notes have been reclassified due to discontinued operations to conform to the presentation as of and for the three months ended March 31, 2007.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements Adopted

SAB No. 108, “Considering the Effects of Prior Year Misstatements when Quantifying Misstatements in Current Year Financial Statements”

During the fourth quarter of 2006, the Company adopted Staff Accounting Bulletin (“SAB”) No. 108, “Considering the Effects of Prior Year Misstatements when Quantifying Misstatements in Current Year Financial Statements.” During the fourth quarter of 2006, the Company concluded that deferred income tax benefits of approximately $7,500 should have been recorded during the year ended December 31, 2005 when it became apparent that certain taxable temporary differences would reverse as a result of classification of businesses as discontinued operations. Management believes that this error totaling approximately $7,500 is not material to the prior year’s financial statements. Upon adoption of SAB No. 108 the Company recorded a cumulative effect adjustment as of January 1, 2006 to accumulated deficit of approximately $7,500.   Of this amount, approximately $5,500 had previously been recorded to income from discontinued operations in the first quarter of 2006. The consolidated statement of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2006 has been restated to adjust for the impact of the SAB No. 108 adjustment.

FASB Interpretation No. 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes”

In July 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Interpretation No. 48 (“FIN 48”), “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes”, effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2006. This Interpretation clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements in accordance with SFAS No. 109. This Interpretation prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. FIN 48 requires that, in order to be recognized, tax benefits must be more likely than not to be sustained upon examination by taxing

5




authorities. The amount recognized is measured as the largest amount of benefit that is greater than 50% likely of being realized upon ultimate settlement. Differences between the amounts recognized in the statements of financial position prior to the adoption of FIN 48 and the amounts reported after adoption should be accounted for as a cumulative-effect adjustment recorded to the beginning balance of retained earnings. FIN 48 also provides guidance on de-recognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure, and transition. (See Note 9).

EITF 06-3, “How Taxes Collected from Customers and Remitted to Governmental Authorities Should Be Presented in the Income Statement (That Is, Gross Versus Net Presentation)”

In June 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) ratified a consensus on the Emerging Issues Task Force (“EITF”) Issue No. 06-03, “How Taxes Collected from Customers and Remitted to Governmental Authorities Should Be Presented in the Income Statement (That Is, Gross Versus Net Presentation)”, related to the classification of certain sales, value added and excise taxes within the income statement. The EITF reached a tentative conclusion that the presentation of taxes on either a gross (included in revenues and costs) or a net (excluded from revenues) basis is an accounting policy decision that should be disclosed. The Company records taxes collected from customers and remitted to governmental authorities on a net basis.

2.   Divestitures

The Company has classified the results of certain divested entities and entities planned for disposition as of March 31, 2007 as discontinued operations in accordance with SFAS No. 144, “Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets”.

In the fourth quarter of 2005, the Company decided to pursue the sales of its Crafts and History groups, part of the Enthusiast Media segment, which has been classified as discontinued operations as of March 31, 2007. The Company completed the sales of these groups during 2006.

In the fourth quarter of 2006, the Company announced that it had agreed to sell its Outdoors group (part of the Enthusiast Media segment), which consists primarily of its hunting, fishing, and shooting titles, for $170,000 in cash. The transaction was completed in January 2007 and the Company recorded a gain of $48,703, net of tax. The net proceeds from this sale are subject to routine post-closing adjustments. The assets and liabilities of the Outdoors group are included in assets and liabilities of businesses held for sale on the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2006.

In the fourth quarter of 2006, the Company announced that it would classify the results of operations of its Education segment as discontinued operations, due to the Company actively pursuing the sale of this segment. The Company’s Education segment is comprised of Channel One, a proprietary network for secondary schools; Films Media Group, a leading source of educational video; and PRIMEDIA Healthcare, a medical education business. In April 2007, the company completed the sale of Channel One. The assets and liabilities of the Education segment are classified as businesses held for sale on the accompanying consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2007 and December 31, 2006 (see further discussion below).

In February 2007, the Company announced that its Board of Directors had authorized the Company to explore the sale of its Enthusiast Media segment, as the market conditions are favorable, in lieu of the spin-off of the Consumer Guides segment. PRIMEDIA has retained Goldman Sachs and Lehman Brothers to manage this process. The Company will apply the proceeds from the sale to pay down debt.

The operating results of these operations have been classified as discontinued operations for all periods presented.

The Company has established October 31 as its annual impairment test date. In addition to the annual impairment test, an assessment is also required whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. For the three months ended March 31, 2007 and 2006, there were no events or changes in circumstances requiring the Company to perform an impairment test related to goodwill, intangible assets or other finite lived assets, and accordingly, there were no impairments recorded.

During the first quarter of 2006, the Company purchased $7,025 principal amount of its 87¤8% Senior Notes due May 15, 2011 in three different transactions for $6,832 plus $200 of accrued interest. As a result, the Company recorded a gain of $54 net of the write-off of unamortized deferred financing costs and bond discount. This amount is included in the other income, net line on the accompanying condensed statements of consoldiated operations for the three months ended March 31, 2006.

The Senior Notes and the bank credit facilities all rank senior in right of payment to all subordinated obligations which PRIMEDIA Inc. (a holding company) may incur. The Senior Notes and bank credit facilities are secured by a pledge of stock of Consumer Source Inc. (formerly known as PRIMEDIA Companies Inc.). Consumer Source Inc. includes all of the business and related operations of PRIMEDIA Inc. The operating results of Consumer Source Inc. are the same as consolidated PRIMEDIA Inc., and their balance sheets are substantially the same, except that PRIMEDIA Inc. holds all of the Company’s bank credit facilities, Senior Notes indebtedness, capital stock accounts and other miscellaneous balance sheet accounts.

Under the most restrictive covenants as defined in the bank credit facilities agreement, as amended on September 30, 2005, the Company must maintain a minimum interest coverage ratio, as defined, of 1.75 to 1 and a minimum fixed charge coverage ratio, as defined, of 1.05 to 1. The maximum allowable debt leverage ratio, as defined in the bank credit facilities, is 6.25 to 1 and decreases to 6.00 to 1 on October 1, 2007.

The Senior Floating Rate Notes bear interest equal to the three-month LIBOR plus 5.375% per year. The interest rate of the Senior Floating Rate Notes was 10.735 % at March 31, 2007.

9.   Income Taxes

The Company adopted the provisions of FIN 48 on January 1, 2007.  As a result of the implementation of FIN 48, the Company recognized a liability for unrecognized tax benefits, interest and penalties of $16,126 which was accounted for as an increase to the January 1, 2007 balance of accumulated deficit, net of any valuation allowance impact.  The total amount of unrecognized tax benefits as of January 1, 2007 was $15,786, net of valuation allowance impact.  Substantially all of this amount would, if recognized, have an effect on the effective income tax rate.   In addition to the unrecognized tax benefits, the Company had $3,689 of interest and penalties accrued as of January 1, 2007.

The Company’s policy is to recognize interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits in the provision for income taxes.  

The Company or one of its subsidiaries files income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction and various state and local jurisdictions, and the Company is routinely under audit by many different tax authorities. Management believes that its accrual for tax liabilities is adequate for all open audit years based on its assessment of many factors, including past experience and interpretations of tax law.  This assessment relies on estimates and assumptions and may involve a series of complex judgments about future events.   As a result of its net operating loss carryforwards, the Company is subject to federal examination for all years since 1992.

It is possible that federal, state and local tax examinations will be settled during the next twelve months.  If any of these settlements do occur within the next twelve months, the Company would make any necessary adjustments to the liability for unrecognized tax benefits.  Until formal resolutions are reached between the Company and the tax authorities, the determination of a possible audit settlement range with respect to the impact on uncertain tax benefits is not practicable.  On the basis of present information, it is the opinion of the Company’s management that any assessments resulting from the current examinations will not have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.  The statute of limitations in select jurisdictions is expected to expire within the next twelve months and may result in a decrease of unrecognized tax benefits and accrued interest of $2,274.

During the first quarter of 2007, the Company’s liability for unrecognized tax benefits increased by $2,570, all of which would affect the effective tax rate if recognized. An additional $352 of interest was accrued in the first quarter of 2007.

The Company does not amortize the book basis of its indefinite-lived intangible assets, but continues to amortize these intangible assets for tax purposes. For the three months ended March 31, 2007 and 2006, provision for income taxes primarily consisted of deferred income taxes of $636 and $585, respectively. The Company expects that it will record a total of approximately $1,905, to increase deferred tax liabilities during the remainder of 2007.

10.   Provision for Restructuring Costs

In 2006, the Company began new cost reduction initiatives to streamline operations, reduce layers of management and consolidate real estate.

The remaining liability related to real estate lease commitments for space that the Company no longer occupies, is expected to be paid through 2015. The employee-related termination costs are expected to be paid through 2007. To reduce the lease related costs, the Company has aggressively pursued subleases of its available office space. These leases have been recorded at their net present value amounts and are net of sublease income amounts. The Company evaluates the appropriateness of its reserves on a quarterly basis.

As a result of the implementation of this new plan, the Company has closed 6 office locations and has terminated a total of 102 individuals.

Liabilities of $4,209 and $3,485 representing the current portion of the provision for restructuring costs are included in accrued expenses and other on the condensed consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2007 and December 31, 2006, respectively. Liabilities of $20,696 and $21,208 representing the non-current portion of the provision for restructuring costs are included in other non-current liabilities on the condensed consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2007 and December 31, 2006, respectively.

11.   Income per Common Share

Income per common share for the three months ended March 31, 2007 and 2006 has been determined based on net income divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for all periods presented.

The securities that could potentially dilute basic earnings per share in the future consist of approximately 9,870,000 warrants at March 31, 2007 and 2006, and 18,688,678 and 20,467,729 stock options at March 31, 2007 and 2006, respectively.

12.   Commitments and Contingencies

The Company is involved in ordinary and routine litigation incidental to its business. In the opinion of management, there is no pending legal proceeding that would have a material adverse effect on the condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company.

In 2005, the Company sold substantially all of the assets of Workplace Learning for the assumption of ongoing liabilities while retaining a secondary liability as the assignor of the building and satellite time leases. The Company received a third party guaranty of up to $10,000 against those lease obligations to reimburse the Company for lease payments made (the “Guaranty”). In the first half of 2006, the Company made payments on behalf of Workplace Learning pursuant to its secondary liability. During the second quarter of 2006, the Company recorded a liability for the fair value of the lease payments, net of sublease income, related to its secondary liability on the lease payments. At that time, the Company also recorded a receivable of $10,000 for the amount due from the third party guarantor for the lease payments. As a result of recording the receivable and liability during the second quarter, the Company has recorded a charge of approximately $7,200 to discontinued operations. In the second half of 2006, the Company commenced a lawsuit to collect on the Guaranty. During the fourth quarter of 2006, the Company determined that it was not probable that the third party would remit payment, as required under the Guaranty, and fully reserved for the $10,000 receivable with a charge to discontinued operations as of December 31, 2006. The Company continues to exercise all available legal remedies against the third party guarantor and to fulfill its secondary obligation regarding the Workplace Learning leases.

At March 31, 2007, the Company has recorded a total liability of $15,923 for the fair value of the future lease payments, net of estimated sublease income, in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheet.

13.   Business Segment Information

In the fourth quarter of 2006, the Company announced that it would classify the results of operations of its Education segment as discontinued operations, due to the Company actively pursuing the sale of this segment. The Company’s Education segment is comprised of Channel One, a proprietary network for secondary schools; Films Media Group, a leading source of educational video; and PRIMEDIA Healthcare, a medical education business. In April 2007, the company completed the sale of Channel One.

In February 2007, the Company announced that its Board of Directors had authorized the Company to explore the sale of its Enthusiast Media segment, as the market conditions are favorable, in lieu of the spin-off of the Consumer Guides segment. PRIMEDIA has retained Goldman Sachs and Lehman Brothers to manage this process. The Company will apply the proceeds from the sale to pay down debt. The operating results of the Enthusiast Media segment have been classified as discontinued operations for all periods presented.

The Company operates in one segment, the Consumer Guides segment, and has a Corporate function, which supports the Consumer Guides segment as well as the Enthusiast Media and Education segments, which are included in discontinued operations. The Consumer Guides segment is the nation’s largest publisher and distributor of free publications, including Apartment Guide, New Home Guide and Auto Guide and operates related Internet sites.

The following information includes certain intersegment transactions and is, therefore, not necessarily indicative of the results had the operations existed as stand-alone businesses. Intersegment transactions represent intercompany advertising and other services, which are billed at what management believes are prevailing market rates. These intersegment transactions, which represent transactions between operating units in different business segments, are eliminated in consolidation.

Information regarding the operations of the Company is set forth below based primarily on the nature of the targeted audience. Corporate overhead represents items not allocated to other business segments.

PRIMEDIA evaluates performance based on several factors, of which the primary financial measure is segment earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and other charges (“Segment EBITDA”). Other charges include non-cash compensation and provision for restructuring costs.

(1)          Segment EBITDA represents the segments’ earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization and other charges. Segment EBITDA is not intended to be and should not be considered as an alternative to net income or loss (as determined in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles), or as an indicator of the Company’s operating performance. Segment EBITDA is presented herein because the Company’s chief operating decision maker evaluates and measures each business unit’s performance based on its Segment EBITDA results. PRIMEDIA believes that Segment EBITDA is an accurate indicator of its segments’ results, because it focuses on revenue and operating cost items driven by each operating managers’ performance, and excludes items largely outside of the operating managers’ control. Segment EBITDA as presented may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies since not all companies necessarily calculate Segment EBITDA in an identical manner, and therefore, is not necessarily an accurate measure of comparison between companies.

14.   Financial Information for Guarantors of the Company’s Debt

The information that follows presents consolidating financial information as of March 31, 2007 and December 31, 2006 and for the three months ended March 31, 2007 and 2006 for a) PRIMEDIA Inc. (as the Issuer), b) the guarantor subsidiaries, which are, with limited exceptions, the restricted subsidiaries, represent the core PRIMEDIA businesses and exclude investment and other development properties included in the unrestricted category, c) the non-guarantor subsidiaries (primarily representing Internet assets and businesses, new launches and other properties under evaluation for turnaround or shutdown and foreign subsidiaries), which are with limited exceptions the unrestricted subsidiaries, d) elimination entries and e) the Company on a consolidated basis. Corporate operating expenses have been included in the operations of the guarantor subsidiaries. These reclassifications are in compliance with our debt agreements and have not had a material effect on the Company’s debt covenant ratios as defined in the bank credit facilities. Certain 2006 amounts have been recast to conform to the 2007 presentation. The Company believes that this presentation more accurately reflects the financial information of the categories presented below.

The consolidating financial information includes certain allocations of revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities based on management’s best estimates which are not necessarily indicative of financial position, results

14




of operations and cash flows that these entities would have achieved on a stand-alone basis and should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements of the Company. The intercompany balances in the accompanying consolidating financial statements include cash management activities, management fees, cross promotional activities and other intercompany charges between PRIMEDIA Inc. and the business units and among the business units. The non-guarantor subsidiary results of operations include: internet operations, foreign operations, certain distribution operations, certain start-up magazine businesses, revenues and related expenses derived from the licensing of certain products of guarantor subsidiaries and expenses associated with the cross promotion by the guarantor subsidiaries of the activities of the non-guarantor subsidiaries. The transactions described above are billed, by the Company, at what the Company believes are market rates. All intercompany related activities are eliminated in consolidation. Consumer Source Inc. (formerly known as PRIMEDIA Companies Inc.) includes all of the businesses and related operations of PRIMEDIA Inc. The operating results of Consumer Source Inc. are the same as consolidated PRIMEDIA Inc., and their balance sheets are substantially the same, except that PRIMEDIA Inc. holds all of the Company’s bank credit facilities, Senior Notes indebtedness, capital stock accounts and other miscellaneous balance sheet accounts.

The Company is herewith providing detailed information and disclosure as to the methodology used in determining compliance with the leverage ratio in the credit facilities agreement. Under its bank credit facilities and Senior Note agreements, the Company is allowed to designate certain businesses as unrestricted subsidiaries to the extent that the value of those businesses does not exceed the permitted amounts, as defined in these agreements. The Company has designated certain of its businesses as unrestricted (the “Unrestricted Group”), which primarily represent Internet businesses, trademark and content licensing and service companies, new launches (including traditional start-ups), other properties under evaluation for turnaround or shutdown and foreign subsidiaries. Except for those specifically designated by the Company as unrestricted, all businesses of the Company are restricted (the “Restricted Group”). Indebtedness under the bank credit facilities and Senior Note agreements is guaranteed by each of the Company’s 100%-owned domestic subsidiaries in the Restricted Group in accordance with the provisions and limitations of the Company’s bank credit facilities and Senior Note agreements. The guarantees are full, unconditional and joint and several. The Unrestricted Group does not guarantee the bank credit facilities or Senior Notes. For purposes of determining compliance with certain financial covenants under the Company’s bank credit facilities, the Unrestricted Group’s results (positive or negative) are not reflected in the Consolidated EBITDA of the Restricted Group which, as defined in the bank credit facilities agreement, excludes losses of the Unrestricted Group, non-cash charges and restructuring charges and is adjusted primarily for the trailing four quarters results of acquisitions and divestitures and estimated savings for acquired business.
