Latest Research

From tweets to insights: A social media analysis of the emotion discourse of sustainable energy in the United States.

Jacqueline Corbet

t And Bastin Tony Roy Savarimuthu.

Abstract

Social acceptance is essential to effective sustainable energy policy implementation. Social media offer new platforms to support policy work and, by allowing emotional expressions, help to create an emotion discourse. Emotions and the discourse around them impact social acceptance by influencing organizational legitimacy, supporting and disrupting institutions, and energizing policy actors. This research investigates how social media analytics (SMA) can be used to decode the emotion discourse on sustainable energy to fulfill diverse informational goals of policy actors. Applying SMA to 6528 Twitter messages for 27 U.S. electricity utilities over five months, we demonstrate how to measure and compare the emotion discourse of utilities over time. Using a variety of SMA techniques, we find the emotion discourse around sustainable energy varies across utilities in terms of both magnitude and polarity and we uncover four clusters of utilities having similar patterns of emotion discourse. We further identify three anomalous emotional events. SMA also reveal that joy and sadness are, respectively, the most common positive and negative emotions expressed. Finally, we use SMA to reveal how different actors contribute to the emotion discourse: utility followers are predominately responsible for negative affect in the emotion discourse. This work serves as a proof-of-concept showing how SMA can complement other techniques for gauging social acceptance, informing policy, managing sustainable energy programs, and developing effective communication strategies.

The Industry

Latest Update: 2024

Industry Overview

At $660 billion, the U.S. media and entertainment (M&E) industry represents a third of the global M&E industry, and it includes motion pictures, television programs and commercials, streaming content, music and audio recordings, broadcast, radio, book publishing, video games, and ancillary services and products. In 2019, foreign direct investment accounted for $25.4 billion in the motion picture and sound recording industry and $3.4 billion in the radio and cable broadcasting industry. Foreign-owned businesses in the U.S. motion picture and sound recording industry employed 71,800 workers in 2018.

Filmed Entertainment (Motion Pictures, Television, and Video)

The U.S. motion picture and video industry encompasses films, movie theaters, TV subscriptions and electronic home video production, and distribution and consumption. Traditionally the film industry consisted of multinational umbrella corporations, major studios, and independent studios or "indies." Today, multi-channel networks engage in the filmed entertainment sector and SVOD platforms are major drivers in the filmed entertainment sector.

Drawing on formidable strengths, the U.S. film industry has a proven ability to produce films that generate hundreds of millions of dollars, including revenues from distribution across strong domestic and international networks. Success in the industry is based on creativity and financing, and the industry is largely self-regulated. The U.S. market has a large talent pool of writers, actors, producers, directors and technical experts, and is home to a variety of film crews, post-production firms, backdrops, and infrastructure to support production. U.S. filmmakers also receive critical protections for their intellectual property.

Many of the leading motion picture studios are part of larger media conglomerates that often include television, video and streaming services, music services, newspaper, cable and magazine segments. The industry offers attractive possibilities for international companies, both large and small, and provides film production tax incentives. With the shift toward digital production and distribution, foreign firms are continually seeking out U.S. digital and animation expertise and new formats.

As of 2019, 40 percent of the 428,900 workers in the industry are employed in arts, design, entertainment, sports, and media occupations, including 72,990 actors, producers, and directors and 51,000 media and communication equipment workers. The second-largest occupation group in the industry are the 76,060 personal care and service occupation workers, including 62,130 entertainment attendants and related workers.

Sound Recording Industry

The sound recording industry includes music publishers, sound recording studios, and record production and distribution. Of the 18,580 employees in the industry in 2019, 7,440 workers (40 percent) are employed in arts, design, entertainment, sports, and media occupations such as media and communication equipment workers (4,550 employees earning an average annual wage of $62,500) and entertainers and performers, sports and related workers (2,070 employees earning an average annual wage of $99,210). Other large occupation groups are office and administrative support occupations (3,490 workers earning an average annual wage of $40,280) and management occupations (2,530 workers earning an average annual wage of $139,560).

Radio, Television, and Cable Broadcasting

The broadcasting industry (except internet) includes radio stations, television broadcasting, and cable and other subscription programming. In 2019, the industry employed 268,170 employees, earning an average annual wage of $69,880. Over half of all employees are employed in three occupation groups: media and communications workers (56,270 employees earning an average of $60,410 per year); media and communication equipment workers (44,160 employees earning an average annual wage of $51,590); and entertainers and performers, sports and related workers (36,020 employees earning an average annual wage of $79,310).

US MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY

OVERVIEW

The U.S. Media and Entertainment (M&E) industry is known to be the largest in the world. At around $717 billion, it represents one-third of the global Media & Entertainment industry, including various segments: motion pictures, television programs and commercials, streaming content, music and audio recordings, broadcast, radio, book publishing, video games, and ancillary services and products.

The North American media and entertainment industry is the fastest growing industry that includes a vast range of product offerings and services, along with the evolving social media presence over the region.

The U.S. industry is under a phase of transition with both traditional and new models working hand-in-hand across multiple devices and platforms and the market is expected to further expand in the upcoming years. Digitisation as well as globalisation of services have further fostered a revolution in the US Media and Entertainment industry.

Integration of new OTT services across the already existing subscription-based streaming devices among the US household is expected to drive the media & entertainment sector across the region.

For instance, Comcast added Amazon Prime Video to the online content available through its service thereby enhancing the application of the OTT media, which already included streaming services such as Netflix, YouTube, and Pandora.

Further, Netflix is estimated to capture around 74% of the total penetration of US OTT households, followed by Youtube with 54% and Amazon by 33% penetration.

Such high deployment of the OTT services across the region is expected to drive the demand of the video & entertainment industry in the forthcoming years.

US MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY SEGMENTATION

Filmed Entertainment (Motion Pictures, Television, and Video)

Traditionally the film industry consisted of multinational corporations, major studios, and independent studios. Today, multi-channel networks engage in the filmed entertainment sector and Streaming Video On Demand (SVOD) platforms are major drivers in the filmed entertainment sector.

Alternatively, media houses are trying to diversify concession options, offer consumer products such as movie or brand related merchandise, and offer membership discounts to attract viewership.

The market overall is becoming increasingly polarized. Drawing on formidable strengths, the U.S. film industry has a proven ability to produce films that generate a buzz and garner the interest of millions, alternatively generating massive revenues from distribution across strong domestic and international networks. Success in the industry is based on creativity and financing, and the industry is largely self-regulated.

Many of the leading motion picture studios are part of larger media conglomerates that often include television, video and streaming services, music services, newspaper, cable and magazine segments.

The industry offers lucrative opportunities for international companies, both large and small, and provides advanced film production resources and technologies. With the shift towards a digital mode of production and distribution, foreign firms are continually seeking out U.S. digital and animation expertise and new formats.

Music

The U.S. recorded music industry (including concerts and touring) is said to be the largest global music market. Apart from contracting physical music sales, all segments of recorded music are up, including digital, streaming, and sync licensing. Overtaking physical music sales, digital sales have helped the music industry adapt to a fast-changing entertainment landscape.

Live and recorded music sales are rising, and digitally recorded music is expected to further grow. Many companies in the industry have diversified via signing up for sync deals with vertical businesses for TV ads, in-flight entertainment, satellite radio, restaurants, touring, live entertainment, and merchandise.

Digital technologies have greatly contributed in revolutionising the music industry by creating high quality, low-cost recording techniques and digital distribution, along with the proliferation of devices to download and listen to music.

Future industry growth is likely to come from diversified services like licensing brand name products and services, packaging consumer experiences around touring and live music, bundling music services with other online content services and more.

Video Games

The U.S. gaming industry accounts for a significant amount of the M&E industry, and revenues are expected to grow exponentially. Today's consumers have access to multiple devices for gaming, including PCs, mobile phones, digital or physical consoles, and tablets.

The sector comprises: physical, digital, and online games; mobile apps; and virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR). Electronic sports, also known as "e-sports", includes professional gaming, in which players compete before a live audience, and the industry is growing quickly.

The industry is constantly innovating and bringing new applications to the market. The use of digital technology like virtual reality and augmented reality to replace reality with a complete and realistic, immersive simulation coupled with interactive computer-generated content is garnering quite the attention of its consumers recently.

OTT Platforms

The United States remains the largest OTT video market globally, accounting for more than half (55.6%) of all OTT revenue in the world and showing massive scope for growth as the market matures further.

Streaming services will continue to grow and offer more personalized services in the form of user experiences for consumers. The consumers have the power to influence digital entertainment industries now more than ever before.

Notably, SVOD's share of total revenue will increase over the upcoming years as the popularity of streaming services continues to grow. The increase in competition means new entrants will have to work to differentiate themselves from mainstream SVOD players in order to attract subscribers.

Content generated is particularly exclusive and original, which has proven to be the crucial determinant in the battle to attract subscribers to streaming services. The level of content being poured into the market by both new and existing players is prodigious and is only expected to further grow among local and regional networks as well as national and international markets.

Internet Advertising

While the US still lags behind China and other Asian markets in some areas, it remains a hotbed of innovation and consolidation making it the largest global internet advertising market.

Furthermore, some of the defining recent trends in the internet advertising market, like the rise of video and mobile advertising, have taken hold much earlier in the US than in many other markets. Mobile is now dominant, accounting for 65.1% of US internet ad spend.

US MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY DRIVERS

As the streaming wars continue to intensify, industry players have deployed new technologies in order to reach out to their broader customer base:

Thriving popularity of Artificial intelligence (AI) and Virtual Reality

The M&E industry is poised to look on to a major transformation due to the advent of transformative technologies such as AI, which has been deployed by several companies in the entertainment industry in order to make personalized recommendations based on consumer usage and further making the system more effective for content creation.

In addition, AI also assists companies in streamlining both pre as well as post-production processes, thereby making all steps cohesive and therefore less resource consuming.

The industry is putting VR to use in order to captivate the attention of consumers by making consumers interact with brands. By the help of consumer engagement, the companies are able to improve the commercial success on their business front.

Personalised user experiences

As media and e-commerce experiences become more personal, gratification for consumers is becoming more instant and immediate. In response, content creators and distributors are devising new ways to appeal to consumers as individuals, and marketers are busy figuring out how to meet people at the point of consumption and guide them instantaneously towards purchase. The result is a rapid expansion of and evolution in consumer experiences.

The central theme of this growing world of media is that it's highly customised and increasingly digital. And it is constructed by the individual for his or her own enjoyment and gratification, and delivered through personal devices.

Companies, in turn, are tailoring their offerings and business models to revolve around personal preferences, using data and usage patterns to pitch their products not at audiences of billions, but at billions of individuals.

US MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE

Trends in this industry are in constant flux and it is thereby pertinent for any brand looking to strike a chord with customers, to keep up with the latest trends impacting the M&E industry. The ever-changing trends, specifically in the entertainment industry, have transformed the way in which people consume content via new platforms, mediums as well as features.

In the present scenario, it is rather clear that the growth of video streaming will continue to show decent growth.

While the slowdown in the global economy owing to the Coronavirus pandemic is expected to take a toll on the overall growth of the M&E industry globally, higher time spent by individuals at home due to the lockdown in different parts of the world is expected to continue to support the digital and video-streaming platforms.

An increasingly customised world has major implications for every E&M business across every segment. Whether the subject is business and revenue models, emerging technologies or regulation and trust, companies must keep on top of current and future developments, as well as stay agile and ready to respond proactively and at pace.

2024 media & entertainment industry outlook

Five trends driving industry growth

In the coming year, media & entertainment will continue to evolve quickly, not only reckoning with ongoing trends and disruptions within the industry, but also in its continued response to pandemic-led behavioral changes. Our 2022 M&E outlook explores five attention-grabbing trends that we think will have the broadest impact across the industry.

Riding a wave of opportunity

In 2021, the media and entertainment industry saw continued changes from technological progress, evolving generational behaviors, and ongoing impacts from the global pandemic. Amid recurring COVID-19 surges, people sought more media and entertainment at home, while often avoiding larger in-person events. Digital media engagement even remained strong over the healthier summer, evidence that the pandemic has only

accelerated preexisting trends toward the digital world

.

On the cusp of 2022, the broader socioeconomic dynamics animating the modern age appear to be converging with technology and amplifying change. This is driving more innovation and competition but is also putting pressure on business models to keep up with changing behaviors. The media and entertainment industry, embedded in the business of imagination, is riding a wave of tremendous opportunity amid the turbulence that attends times of significant change like the one we're in.

In this year's media & entertainment outlook, we examine five areas we believe will touch the most people and grab the most attention:

We will see the streaming video industry mature as metrics evolve beyond subscriber counts to lifetime customer value, and existing business models evolve to find greater profitability amid global competition.

In-person entertainment-as well as the businesses and venues that rely on it-will face greater pressure to go beyond simply bringing people out of their pandemic cocoons by evolving and differentiating itself from the living room.

Social media, the largest digital aggregator of humanity, will find itself at a turning point, moving to build out the next generation of retail shopping.

The sudden rise of NFTs and their success in bringing scarcity and exclusivity to digital goods will drive new models of customer engagement and loyalty. They'll also lead to more digital product innovation, greater empowerment for their creators, and a fuller realization of the grand ambitions for blockchain, cryptocurrency, and the decentralized web.

Each of these trends is slowly marching humanity closer toward the metaverse (or metaverses), where people will spend more of their time in immersive, social, digital worlds, and the digital world will be drawn across the physical one.

First quarter net cash flows from operating activities totaled $3.2 billion, compared to $3.3 billion in the prior year.

The footnotes contain important disclosures regarding the definitions used for these operating statistics. All percentages are calculated using whole numbers. Minor differences may exist due to rounding.

As of March 31, 2024, Charter had 29.8 million residential customer relationships, excluding mobile-only relationships.

First quarter residential Internet customers decreased by 72,000, compared to an increase of 67,000 during the first quarter of 2023.

Charter is on plan to evolve its network at a lower cost than its competitors to offer symmetrical and multi-gigabit speeds across its entire footprint. Charter's Advanced WiFi, a managed WiFi service that provides customers an optimized home network while providing greater control of their connected devices with enhanced security and privacy is available to all Spectrum Internet customers.

Residential video customers decreased by 392,000 in the first quarter of 2024, compared to a decline of 237,000 in the first quarter of 2023. As of March 31, 2024, Charter had 13.1 million residential video customers. In October 2023, Charter began deploying Xumo Stream Boxes to video customers. The Xumo Stream Box combines a live TV experience with access to hundreds of the most popular direct-to-consumer TV applications, and features unified search and discovery along with a curated content offering based on the customer's interests and subscriptions. During the first quarter, Charter launched two new value-oriented Internet-delivered streaming TV packages, Spectrum TV ® Stream and Spectrum Stream Latino, for Spectrum Internet customers. Spectrum TV Stream features many of the most popular news and entertainment networks, and Spectrum Stream Latino adds another option for Hispanic audiences to take advantage of Charter's robust programming lineup.

During the first quarter of 2024, residential wireline voice customers declined by 274,000, compared to a decline of 224,000 in the first quarter of 2023. As of March 31, 2024, Charter had 6.4 million residential wireline voice customers.

During the first quarter of 2024, Charter added 473,000 residential mobile lines, compared to growth of 666,000 during the first quarter of 2023. Spectrum Mobile TM is available to all new and existing Spectrum Internet customers and offers the fastest overall speeds, 1 with plans that include 5G access, do not require contracts and include taxes and fees in the price. Charter's converged offer, Spectrum One, and Spectrum Mobile are central to Charter's converged network strategy to provide consumers a differentiated connectivity experience with highly competitive, simple data plans and pricing. In April, Charter launched Anytime Upgrade, which is now included in the Spectrum Mobile Unlimited Plus data plan at no extra cost, and allows new and existing customers to upgrade their phones whenever they want, as many times as they want, eliminating the traditional wait times and condition requirements associated with phone upgrades.

First quarter 2024 monthly residential revenue per residential customer totaled $120.48, and decreased by 0.1% compared to the prior year period, given a lower mix of video customer relationships and a higher mix of lower priced video packages within Charter's video customer base, mostly offset by promotional rate step-ups, rate adjustments and the growth of Spectrum Mobile.

SMB customer relationships decreased by 3,000 in the first quarter of 2024, while first quarter 2023 SMB customer relationships grew by 8,000. Enterprise PSUs grew by 5,000 in the first quarter of 2024 versus 4,000 added in the first quarter of 2023.

Charter continues to work with federal, state and local governments to bring Spectrum Internet to unserved and underserved communities. During the first quarter of 2024, Charter activated 73,000 subsidized rural passings. Within Charter's subsidized rural footprint, total residential and SMB customer relationships increased by 35,000 in the first quarter of 2024.

Revenues

First quarter revenue increased by 0.2% year-over-year to $13.7 billion, driven by growth in residential mobile service, residential Internet and advertising sales revenues, partly offset by lower residential video revenue.

Residential revenue totaled $10.8 billion in the first quarter, a decrease of 0.4% year-over-year.

Internet revenue grew by 1.9% year-over-year to $5.8 billion, driven by promotional rate step-ups and rate adjustments, partly offset by lower bundled revenue allocation.

Video revenue totaled $3.9 billion in the first quarter, a decrease of 8.1% compared to the prior year period, driven by a decline in video customers during the last year and a higher mix of lower priced video packages within Charter's video customer base, partly offset by promotional rate step-ups and video rate adjustments that pass through programmer rate increases.

Voice revenue grew by 0.3% year-over-year to $374 million, driven by voice rate adjustments, mostly offset by a decline in wireline voice customers over the last twelve months.

First quarter mobile service revenue totaled $685 million, an increase of 37.8% year-over-year, driven by mobile line growth and higher bundled revenue allocation.

Commercial revenue increased by 1.3% year-over-year to $1.8 billion, driven by enterprise revenue growth of 3.8% year-over-year, partly offset by a SMB revenue decrease of 0.3%. The year-over-year decrease in first quarter 2024 SMB revenue was driven by lower monthly SMB revenue per SMB customer primarily due to a higher mix of lower priced video packages and a lower number of voice lines per SMB customer relationship, partly offset by customer relationship growth. Enterprise revenue excluding wholesale increased by 5.5% year-over-year, mostly reflecting PSU growth.

First quarter advertising sales revenue of $391 million increased by 10.0% compared to the year-ago quarter, primarily driven by higher political revenue. Excluding political revenue in both periods, advertising sales revenue increased by 0.3% year-over-year due to higher advanced advertising revenue, mostly offset by a more challenged advertising market.

Other revenue totaled $699 million in the first quarter, an increase of 2.4% compared to the first quarter of 2023, primarily driven by higher mobile device sales.

Operating Costs and Expenses

First quarter programming costs decreased by $229 million, or 8.2% as compared to the first quarter of 2023, reflecting fewer video customers and a higher mix of lower cost packages within Charter's video customer base, partly offset by contractual programming rate increases, renewals and adjustments. First quarter 2024 programming costs include $28 million of favorable adjustments compared to $50 million of favorable adjustments in the prior year period.

Other costs of revenue increased by $130 million, or 9.8% year-over-year, primarily driven by higher mobile service direct costs and mobile device sales.

Costs to service customers was virtually unchanged year-over-year, with additional activity to support the growth of Spectrum Mobile and higher bad debt expense, offset by productivity improvements.

Sales and marketing expenses decreased by $26 million, or 2.7% year-over-year, primarily due to lower labor costs.

Other expenses increased by $5 million, or 0.5% as compared to the first quarter of 2023.

Net Income Attributable to Charter Shareholders

Net income attributable to Charter shareholders totaled $1.1 billion in the first quarter of 2024, compared to $1.0 billion in the first quarter of 2023. The year-over-year increase in net income attributable to Charter shareholders was primarily driven by higher Adjusted EBITDA and a gain on sale of assets, partly offset by higher income tax and interest expenses.

Net income per basic common share attributable to Charter shareholders totaled $7.66 in the first quarter of 2024 compared to $6.74 during the same period last year. The increase was primarily the result of the factors described above in addition to a 4.6% decrease in basic weighted average common shares outstanding versus the prior year period.

Adjusted EBITDA

First quarter Adjusted EBITDA of $5.5 billion grew by 2.8% year-over-year, reflecting growth in revenue of 0.2% and a decrease in operating expenses of 1.5%.

Capital Expenditures

Capital expenditures totaled $2.8 billion in the first quarter of 2024, an increase of $327 million compared to the first quarter of 2023. Line extensions capital expenditures totaled $1.0 billion in the first quarter of 2024, driven by Charter's subsidized rural construction initiative and continued network expansion across residential and commercial greenfield and market fill-in opportunities. First quarter capital expenditures excluding line extensions totaled $1.8 billion, compared to $1.6 billion in the first quarter of 2023, driven by higher spend on upgrade/rebuild (primarily network evolution) and CPE (primarily Xumo Stream Boxes).

Charter currently expects full year 2024 capital expenditures to total between $12.2 billion and $12.4 billion, including line extensions capital expenditures of approximately $4.5 billion and network evolution spend of approximately $1.6 billion, compared to $4.0 billion and $0.9 billion, respectively, in 2023. The actual amount of capital expenditures in 2024 will depend on a number of factors including, but not limited to, the pace of Charter's network evolution and expansion initiatives, supply chain timing and growth rates in Charter's residential and commercial businesses.

Cash Flow and Free Cash Flow

During the first quarter of 2024, net cash flows from operating activities totaled $3.2 billion, compared to $3.3 billion in the prior year quarter. The year-over-year decrease in net cash flows from operating activities was primarily due to a one-time settlement payment in the first quarter of 2024, partly offset by higher Adjusted EBITDA.

Free cash flow in the first quarter of 2024 totaled $358 million, a decrease of $306 million compared to the first quarter of 2023. The year-over-year decrease in free cash flow was primarily driven by an increase in capital expenditures and a decrease in net cash flows from operating activities, partly offset by a less unfavorable change in accrued expenses related to capital expenditures.

Liquidity & Financing

As of March 31, 2024, total principal amount of debt was $97.8 billion and Charter's credit facilities provided approximately $2.9 billion of additional liquidity in excess of Charter's $661 million cash position.

Share Repurchases

During the three months ended March 31, 2024, Charter purchased 1.7 million shares of Charter Class A common stock and Charter Holdings common units for $567 million.

Additional Information Available on Website

The information in this press release should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and footnotes contained in the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the three months ended March 31, 2024, which will be posted on the "Results & SEC Filings" section of the Company's investor relations website at

ir.charter.com

, when it is filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). A slide presentation to accompany the conference call and a trending schedule containing historical customer and financial data will also be available in the "Results & SEC Filings" section.

Use of Adjusted EBITDA and Free Cash Flow Information

The Company uses certain measures that are not defined by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") to evaluate various aspects of its business. Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow are non-GAAP financial measures and should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, net income attributable to Charter shareholders and net cash flows from operating activities reported in accordance with GAAP. These terms, as defined by Charter, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow are reconciled to net income attributable to Charter shareholders and net cash flows from operating activities, respectively, in the Addendum to this release.

Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net income attributable to Charter shareholders plus net income attributable to noncontrolling interest, net interest expense, income taxes, depreciation and amortization, stock compensation expense, other income (expenses), net and other operating (income) expenses, net, such as special charges and (gain) loss on sale or retirement of assets. As such, it eliminates the significant non-cash depreciation and amortization expense that results from the capital-intensive nature of the Company's businesses as well as other non-cash or special items, and is unaffected by the Company's capital structure or investment activities. However, this measure is limited in that it does not reflect the periodic costs of certain capitalized tangible and intangible assets used in generating revenues and the cash cost of financing. These costs are evaluated through other financial measures.

Free cash flow is defined as net cash flows from operating activities, less capital expenditures and changes in accrued expenses related to capital expenditures.

Management and Charter's board of directors use Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow to assess Charter's performance and its ability to service its debt, fund operations and make additional investments with internally generated funds. In addition, Adjusted EBITDA generally correlates to the leverage ratio calculation under the Company's credit facilities or outstanding notes to determine compliance with the covenants contained in the facilities and notes (all such documents have been previously filed with the SEC). For the purpose of calculating compliance with leverage covenants, the Company uses Adjusted EBITDA, as presented, excluding certain expenses paid by its operating subsidiaries to other Charter entities. The Company's debt covenants refer to these expenses as management fees, which were $371 million and $374 million for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023, respectively.

Revenue for Residential Connectivity & Platforms was consistent with the prior year period, driven by increases in domestic broadband, international connectivity, domestic wireless and advertising revenue, offset by decreases in video and other revenue. Domestic broadband revenue increased due to higher average rates. International connectivity revenue increased due to an increase in broadband revenue from higher average rates and in wireless revenue, reflecting higher sales of wireless services and devices. These increases include the positive impact of foreign currency. Domestic wireless revenue increased due to an increase in the number of customer lines. Advertising revenue increased primarily due to higher domestic political advertising, higher revenue from our advanced advertising business and the positive impact of foreign currency, partially offset by lower domestic advertising. Video revenue decreased due to a decline in the number of video customers, partially offset by an overall increase in average rates and the positive impact of foreign currency. Other revenue decreased primarily due to lower residential wireline voice revenue, driven by a decline in the number of customers.

Adjusted EBITDA for Residential Connectivity & Platforms increased due to lower operating expenses. Programming expenses decreased primarily due to a decline in the number of domestic video customers, partially offset by rate increases under our domestic programming contracts and the impact of foreign currency. Non-programming expenses increased primarily due to higher technical and support costs, the impact of foreign currency and increased direct product costs, partially offset by lower spending on marketing and promotion expenses. Adjusted EBITDA margin increased to 38.3%.

Notes:

1

We define Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS as net income attributable to Comcast Corporation and diluted earnings per common share attributable to Comcast Corporation shareholders, respectively, adjusted to exclude the effects of the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, investments that investors may want to evaluate separately (such as based on fair value) and the impact of certain events, gains, losses or other charges that affect period-over-period comparisons. See Table 5 for reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures.

2

We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income attributable to Comcast Corporation before net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests, income tax expense, investment and other income (loss), net, interest expense, depreciation and amortization expense, and other operating gains and losses (such as impairment charges related to fixed and intangible assets and gains or losses on the sale of long-lived assets), if any. From time to time, we may exclude from Adjusted EBITDA the impact of certain events, gains, losses or other charges (such as significant legal settlements) that affect the period-to-period comparability of our operating performance. See Table 4 for reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measure.

3

All earnings per share amounts are presented on a diluted basis.

4

We define Free Cash Flow as net cash provided by operating activities (as stated in our Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows) reduced by capital expenditures and cash paid for intangible assets. From time to time, we may exclude from Free Cash Flow the impact of certain cash receipts or payments (such as significant legal settlements) that affect period-to-period comparability. Cash payments related to certain capital or intangible assets, such as the construction of Universal Beijing Resort, are presented separately in our Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows and are therefore excluded from capital expenditures and cash paid for intangible assets for Free Cash Flow. See Table 4 for reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measure.

5

Constant currency growth rates are calculated by comparing the results for each comparable prior year period adjusted to reflect the average exchange rates from each current year period presented rather than the actual exchange rates that were in effect during the respective periods. See Table 6 for reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures.

6

Adjusted EBITDA is the measure of profit or loss for our segments. From time to time, we may present Adjusted EBITDA for components of our reportable segments, such as Peaco*ck. We believe these measures are useful to evaluate our financial results and provide a basis of comparison to others, although our definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be directly comparable to similar measures used by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA for components are generally presented on a consistent basis with the respective segments and include direct revenue and operating costs and expenses attributed to the component operations.

Numerical information is presented on a rounded basis using actual amounts. Minor differences in totals and percentage calculations may exist due to rounding.

DISH Network Corporation - EchoStar Announces Financial Results for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2024 - 8/5/2024

Three Months Ended March 31, 2024:

EchoStar reported total revenue of $4.01 billion for the first quarter 2024, compared to $4.39 billion in the year ago quarter.

Net loss attributable to EchoStar in the first quarter 2024 was $107.38 million, compared to net income of $253.53 million in the year ago quarter. Diluted loss per share was $0.40, compared to earnings per share of $0.82 in the year ago quarter.

Consolidated OIBDA totaled $470.16 million in the first quarter, compared to $701.09 million in the year ago quarter. (See OBIDA definition and non-GAAP reconciliation below.)

"The EchoStar team performed as planned in the first quarter of 2024. We concentrated efforts on integrating the EchoStar and DISH Network businesses in order to maximize synergies and cost savings, facilitate growth opportunities, and drive operational alignment. Overall, ARPU increased in every business unit and customer satisfaction has improved," said Hamid Akhavan, president and CEO, EchoStar Corporation. "In addition, the business continues to focus on addressing necessary financing, improving our position in Retail Wireless, densifying and expanding the wireless network, maximizing our profitability with the newly launched EchoStar XXIV/Jupiter[TM] 3, and acquiring higher-quality Pay-TV customers."

Three Months Ended March 31, 2024 - Additional Information:

Net Pay-TV subscribers decreased approximately 348,000 in the first quarter, compared to a decrease of approximately 552,000 in the year-ago quarter. The company closed the quarter with 8.18 million Pay-TV subscribers including 6.26 million DISH TV subscribers and 1.92 million SLING TV subscribers. This change in net Pay-TV losses resulted from the decrease in net DISH TV subscriber losses due to a lower DISH TV churn rate and the decrease in net SLING TV subscriber losses, both resulting from our emphasis on acquiring higher quality subscribers, offset by lower gross new DISH TV subscriber activations.

Retail Wireless net subscribers decreased by approximately 81,000 in both the first quarter and in the year-ago quarter. The company closed the quarter with 7.30 million Retail Wireless subscribers. The three months ended March 31, 2024, was positively impacted by a lower Retail Wireless churn rate, partially offset by lower gross new Retail Wireless subscriber activations and lower net ACP/Gen Mobile subscriber additions.

Broadband net subscribers decreased by approximately 26,000 in the first quarter, compared to a decrease of 51,000 in the year-ago quarter. The company closed the quarter with 978,000 Broadband subscribers. The decrease in net Broadband subscriber losses was primarily due to the new EchoStar XXIV satellite service launch and increased subscriber demand for our new satellite service plans.

Set forth below is a table highlighting certain of EchoStar's segment results for the three months ended March 31, 2024 and 2023 (all U.S. GAAP amounts reference results from operations):

Note on Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

OIBDA is defined as "Operating income (loss)" plus "Depreciation and amortization."

OIBDA, which is presented by segment above, is a non-GAAP measure reconciled to "Operating income (loss)" and does not purport to be an alternative to operating income (loss) as a measure of operating performance. We believe this measure is useful to management, investors and other users of our financial information in evaluating operating profitability of our business segments on a more variable cost basis as it excludes the depreciation and amortization expenses related primarily to capital expenditures and acquisitions for those business segments, as well as in evaluating operating performance in relation to our competitors.

Q2 2022 HIGHLIGHTS

Dotdash Meredith revenue increased 568% year-over-year to $490 million, benefitting from the Meredith acquisition.

Digital revenue was $235 million and Print revenue was $260 million.

Operating loss of $28 million and Adjusted EBITDA of $39 million in Q2 2022 reflect $15 million of restructuring charges and transaction-related items associated with the acquisition of Meredith.

Angi Inc. revenue increased 23% year-over-year to $516 million, the 7 th consecutive quarter of double-digit growth and highest quarterly growth since 2018.

Angi Ads and Leads revenue increased 5% year-over-year, the first quarter of growth since Q2 2021.

Angi Services revenue was $151 million, increasing 107% year-over-year, and trailing twelve months Angi Services revenue was $494 million, up 120% period-over-period.

Monetized Transactions were 4.7 million and Transacting Service Professionals were 220,000.

Operating loss improved to $21 million (compared to a loss of $33 million in Q2 2021) and Adjusted EBITDA improved to a profit of $10 million (compared to a loss of $4 million in Q2 2021).

Emerging & Other revenue increased 6% year-over-year to $161 million reflecting 10% growth from Care.com and 68% growth from Bluecrew and Vivian Health on a combined basis. Operating loss of $108 million reflects an $87 million goodwill impairment at Mosaic Group and a $10 million charge related to the sale of certain employee-held equity interests in connection with the Vivian Health equity raise in April 2022 (the latter also impacted Adjusted EBITDA).

IAC repurchased 735,000 shares at an average price of $80.38 in Q2 2022.

IAC holds 63.5 million shares of MGM Resorts International ("MGM"). IAC's Net (loss) earnings and Diluted (loss) earnings per share reflect decreases or increases in MGM's share price as unrealized losses and gains. As a result, Net (loss) earnings and Diluted (loss) earnings per share can be very volatile, which reduces their ability to be effective measures to assess operating performance. IAC's stake in MGM was purchased for $1.2 billion in 2020 and Q1 2022 and is worth $2.2 billion as of August 5, 2022.

Liberty Global - Liberty Global Announces Q4 And Full Year 2023 Results - 15/2/2024

Mike Fries, Liberty Global CEO, stated: "In 2023 we managed through a challenging environment, including cost of living and inflationary pressures and an increasingly competitive landscape for broadband, mobile and video services.

Despite that, we delivered strong Q4 and full year results with continued postpaid momentum and an improved performance in broadband across most markets. We successfully executed price adjustments throughout the year, which supported stable to growing revenues across our FMC markets in 2023, and achieved our operating company guidance metrics for the full year as updated at Q3.

Our Full Company Distributable Cash Flow result was impacted by a U.S. litigationrelated cash tax payment of $315 million which was not anticipated in 2023, but excluding this item we exceeded our Distributable Cash Flow guidance of $1.6 billion for the year. After repurchasing 18.5% of our stock through January 2024, our share count has been reduced to 378 million shares outstanding and, with over $4 billion in cash and liquid securities, our balance sheet remains in great shape.

In Q4 we delivered postpaid growth across all of our core FMC operations and over 80,000 aggregate net adds. Our flanker brand strategies supported growth at VMO2 and Sunrise, and VodafoneZiggo delivered strong postpaid growth despite the price rise in October. At Telenet, overall results continued to be modestly impacted by the IT platform migration issues, but the return to postpaid growth in Q4 was driven by renewed FMC campaigns and targeted hardware offers. The sequential improvement in our broadband performance across most markets in the face of continued competition was positively impacted by our speed differentiation and commercial initiatives and, despite headwinds in fixed, the pricing actions taken during the year supported stable to growing ARPUs across the group in Q4. On the financial front, we reported quarterly revenue growth at VodafoneZiggo, Telenet and Sunrise, as well as stable or improved sequential Adjusted EBITDA performance across all of our core FMC operations.

We made significant progress on our fixed network strategies in 2023. With almost 32 million aggregate homes capable of delivering gigabit speeds, including those on the nexfibre network, we're investing heavily to further expand our reach to 38 million homes3 by 2026 through new build and wholebuy structures. At the end of 2023, VMO2 passed over 4 million FTTH homes, including those on the nexfibre network, and is targeting the addition of approximately 2 million FTTH homes in 2024, with nexfibre planning to invest £1 billion over the year. In Belgium, 2023 marked the launch of Telenet's Wyre NetCo partnership with Fluvius, which will ramp up its fiber rollout in 2024, and we're excited to launch our FMC offerings in Wallonia later this year. We look forward to providing a strategic update on how we plan to crystallize and deliver value over time as part of tomorrow's extended fourth quarter and full-year results call."

a)

Includes $81 million and $74 million of amortization related to purchase accounting as of September 30, 2022 and September 30, 2023, respectively, that is excluded from calculations for purposes of team payments.

Primary F1 revenue represents the majority of F1's revenue and is derived from (i) race promotion revenue, (ii) media rights fees and (iii) sponsorship fees.

There were eight races held in the third quarter of 2023, compared to seven races held in the third quarter of 2022. There are 22 events scheduled for the 2023 race calendar.

Primary F1 revenue increased in the third quarter with growth across race promotion, media rights and sponsorship partly driven by one more race held in the current period, which resulted in a greater proportion of season-based revenue recognized. Race promotion revenue also increased due to higher fees generated from the different mix of events held, with two additional races outside of Europe, and other contractual increases in fees. Media rights revenue benefited from increased fees under new and renewed contractual agreements and continued growth in F1 TV subscription revenue. Sponsorship revenue also increased due to recognition of revenue from new sponsors and growth in revenue from existing sponsors. Other F1 revenue increased in the third quarter primarily due to higher freight income driven by two additional races held outside of Europe and higher hospitality revenue generated from the Paddock Club, partially offset by lower licensing income.

Operating income and adjusted OIBDA (2) increased in the third quarter. Team payments were higher compared to the prior year due to the pro rata recognition of payments across the race season with one more race held, as well as an expectation of increased team payments for the full year. Other cost of F1 revenue is largely variable in nature and is mostly derived from servicing both Primary and Other F1 revenue opportunities. These costs increased due to higher hospitality costs driven by cost inflation and the mix of events held in the current period, as well as increased freight costs due to two additional races outside of Europe. Other cost of F1 revenue in the third quarter was also impacted by increased technical, travel and other event-related costs due to one additional race, as well as increased commissions and partner servicing costs associated with higher Primary F1 revenue streams, certain early stage costs of promoting the Las Vegas Grand Prix and costs incurred for the new F1 Academy series. Selling, general and administrative expense increased primarily due to higher personnel, property, IT and marketing costs, some of which is attributable to the Las Vegas Grand Prix, partially offset by lower legal costs and foreign exchange favorability. There were $8 million of costs associated with the planning of the Las Vegas Grand Prix included in selling, general and administrative expense in the third quarter of 2023.

The businesses and assets attributed to Formula One Group consist primarily of Liberty Media's subsidiary F1 and other minority investments.

LIBERTY LIVE GROUP - Liberty Media completed the Reclassification to create the Liberty Live Group tracking stock on August 3, 2023. In the third quarter, $5 million of corporate level selling, general and administrative expense (including stock-based compensation expense) was allocated to Liberty Live Group.

The businesses and assets attributed to Liberty Live Group consist primarily of Liberty Media's interest in Live Nation and other minority investments.

The cash and debt narrative below compares financial information as of June 30, 2023 adjusted for the Split-Off and Reclassification to financial information as of September 30, 2023. Financial information for the period ended June 30, 2023 unadjusted for the Split-Off and Reclassification can be found in the table above.

Total cash and cash equivalents attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group decreased $55 million in the third quarter as net debt repayment at both Liberty SiriusXM Group and SiriusXM, capital expenditures and return of capital at SiriusXM more than offset cash from operations at SiriusXM. Included in the cash and cash equivalents balance attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group at September 30, 2023 is $53 million held at SiriusXM. Although SiriusXM is a consolidated subsidiary, it is a separate public company with a non-controlling interest, therefore Liberty Media does not have ready access to SiriusXM's cash balance. Liberty SiriusXM Group received $78 million of dividends from SiriusXM during the quarter.

Total debt attributed to Liberty SiriusXM Group decreased $188 million during the quarter as Liberty SiriusXM Group paid down $100 million under its SiriusXM margin loan and SiriusXM reduced borrowing under its revolving credit facility. In October, Liberty SiriusXM Group retired the remaining $199 million outstanding principal amount of its 1.375% cash convertible notes with cash on hand.

Total cash and cash equivalents attributed to Formula One Group increased $119 million during the quarter as cash from operations at F1 more than offset capital expenditures primarily related to the Las Vegas Grand Prix. During the third quarter, Formula One Group announced it entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Quint. The transaction is expected to close by year-end and will be funded with Formula One Group cash on hand.

Total debt at Formula One Group was relatively flat in the third quarter. Formula 1 repriced its $1.7 billion Term Loan B facility on October 4, 2023, reducing the margin from 3.00% to 2.25%.

Total cash and cash equivalents attributed to Liberty Live Group increased $215 million and total debt increased $292 million during the third quarter. During the quarter, Liberty Live Group issued $1.15 billion aggregate principal amount of 2.375% exchangeable senior debentures due 2053. A portion of the proceeds were used to repurchase $858 million aggregate adjusted principal amount of its 0.5% exchangeable senior debentures due 2050 for a total cost of $918 million. Liberty Live Group expects to use the remaining net proceeds of the offering to settle its remaining 0.5% exchangeable senior debentures ahead of the September 2024 put/call date, and for general corporate purposes. On September 5, 2023, the Live Nation margin loan was amended, extending the maturity date to September 2026 while other terms remain unchanged.

In connection with the Reclassification, the 3.75% Liberty SiriusXM Group convertible notes due 2028 (convertible into LSXMA) and the 2.25% Formula One Group convertible notes due 2027 (convertible into FWONK) were adjusted to provide for the conversion and settlement of the notes into the reclassified Liberty SiriusXM Group and Formula One Group equities, respectively, at new conversion rates in accordance with each respective bond indenture. As of September 30, 2023, the conversion rate for the 3.75% notes is 35.4563 shares of LSXMA and the conversion rate for the 2.25% notes is 12.0505 shares of FWONK per $1,000 principal amount of the respective notes.

February 07, 2024 04:15 PM Eastern Standard Time

NEW YORK--(

BUSINESS WIRE

)--News Corporation ("News Corp" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: NWS, NWSA; ASX: NWS, NWSLV) today reported financial results for the three months ended December 31, 2023.

Commenting on the results, Chief Executive Robert Thomson said:

"News Corp again saw growth in both revenue and profitability this quarter as we continue to realize the collective benefit of our strategic shift to digital and subscription revenues, and away from sometimes volatile advertising revenues.

Our net income rose to $183 million from $94 million in the same quarter last year and our reported EPS was 27 cents, compared to 12 cents for the same period last year, driven by a 16% surge in Total Segment EBITDA. We had particularly robust results across the three core pillars of our business - Dow Jones, Book Publishing and Digital Real Estate Services - and believe there are strong prospects for further growth as difficult macro conditions ease in some of our markets.

We expect to be a core content provider for Generative AI companies, who need the highest quality, timely content to ensure the relevance and accuracy of their products. We patently prefer negotiation to litigation, courtship to courtrooms. But let's be clear, in my view those who repurpose without approval are stealing and are undermining the very act of creativity - counterfeiting is not creating, and the AI world is replete with content counterfeiters.

I also want to draw attention to the plight of our colleague Evan Gershkovich, who continues to be unjustly detained in a Moscow prison, solely for being a highly professional journalist. We hope that justice will prevail and thank all who publicly, and not so publicly, have been working to secure his emancipation."

SECOND QUARTER RESULTS

The Company reported fiscal 2024 second quarter total revenues of $2.59 billion, a 3% increase compared to $2.52 billion in the prior year period, primarily driven by higher Australian residential revenues at REA Group, continued strong growth in the professional information business at the Dow Jones segment, increased digital sales and improved returns due to better sell through of inventory at the Book Publishing segment and a $13 million, or 1%, positive impact from foreign currency fluctuations. The increase was partly offset by lower revenues at Move due to continued challenging housing market conditions in the U.S. and lower advertising revenues at the News Media segment. Adjusted Revenues (which excludes the foreign currency impact, acquisitions and divestitures as defined in Note 2) were up 2% compared to the prior year.

Net income for the quarter was $183 million, a 95% increase compared to net income of $94 million in the prior year, driven by higher Total Segment EBITDA, as discussed below, improved equity losses of affiliates and higher Other, net. These impacts were partially offset by higher income tax expense.

The Company reported second quarter Total Segment EBITDA of $473 million, a 16% increase compared to $409 million in the prior year primarily due to higher revenues, as discussed above, lower costs at the Book Publishing segment and gross cost savings related to the announced 5% headcount reduction initiative. The increase was partly offset by higher sports programming rights costs at the Subscription Video Services segment. Adjusted Total Segment EBITDA (as defined in Note 2) increased 14%.

Net income per share attributable to News Corporation stockholders was $0.27 as compared to $0.12 in the prior year.

Adjusted EPS (as defined in Note 3) were $0.26 compared to $0.14 in the prior year.

Digital Real Estate Services

Revenues in the quarter increased $33 million, or 9%, compared to the prior year, driven by strong performance at REA Group partly offset by lower revenues at Move. Segment EBITDA in the quarter increased $19 million, or 15%, compared to the prior year, primarily due to higher revenues at REA Group partly offset by lower revenues at Move and a $2 million, or 1%, negative impact from foreign currency fluctuations. Adjusted Revenues and Adjusted Segment EBITDA (as defined in Note 2) increased 8% and 16%, respectively.

In the quarter, revenues at REA Group increased $52 million, or 22%, to $292 million, primarily driven by higher Australian residential revenues due to price increases, increased depth penetration, favorable geographic mix and an increase in national listings, as well as an increase from financial services. The increase was slightly offset by a $3 million, or 1%, negative impact from foreign currency fluctuations. Australian national residential buy listing volumes in the quarter increased 8% compared to the prior year, with listings in Sydney and Melbourne up 22% and 24%, respectively.

Move's revenues in the quarter decreased $19 million, or 13%, to $127 million, primarily as a result of lower real estate revenues. Real estate revenues, which represented 82% of total Move revenues, decreased $17 million, or 14%, driven by the continued impact of the macroeconomic environment on the housing market, including higher mortgage rates, which has led to lower lead and transaction volumes. Revenues from the referral model, which includes the ReadyConnect Concierge[SM] product, and the traditional lead generation product decreased due to these factors. Based on Move's internal data, average monthly unique users of Realtor.com ® 's web and mobile sites for the fiscal second quarter was flat compared to the prior year at 66 million. Lead volume declined 7%, which was an improvement from the prior quarter rate.

Subscription Video Services

Revenues of $470 million in the quarter increased $8 million, or 2%, compared with the prior year, driven by higher revenues from Kayo and BINGE from increases in both volume and pricing, despite a more difficult Summer sports season and inflationary pressures, partially offset by the impact from fewer residential broadcast subscribers and a $6 million, or 1%, negative impact from foreign currency fluctuations. Adjusted Revenues of $476 million increased 3% compared to the prior year. Foxtel Group streaming subscription revenues represented approximately 29% of total circulation and subscription revenues in the quarter, as compared to 26% in the prior year.

As of December 31, 2023, Foxtel's total closing paid subscribers were over 4.3 million, flat compared to the prior year, as growth in streaming subscribers driven by Kayo and BINGE was offset by fewer residential broadcast subscribers. Broadcast subscriber churn in the quarter was flat compared to the prior year at 12.9%, despite the completion of Foxtel's migration project of subscribers off cable. Broadcast ARPU for the quarter increased 3% year-over-year to A$86 (US$56).

Segment EBITDA of $77 million in the quarter decreased $13 million, or 14%, compared with the prior year, which includes a $1 million, or 1%, negative impact from foreign currency fluctuations. Adjusted Segment EBITDA of $78 million decreased 13% compared to the prior year, primarily due to higher sports programming rights costs driven mainly by contractual increases across AFL and NRL and $10 million of costs related to the upcoming launch of Hubbl partially offset by higher revenues and lower technology and marketing costs.

Dow Jones

Revenues in the quarter increased $21 million, or 4%, compared to the prior year, driven by growth in circulation and subscription revenues led by growth in professional information business products. Digital revenues at Dow Jones in the quarter represented 78% of total revenues compared to 76% in the prior year. Adjusted Revenues increased 3%.

Circulation and subscription revenues increased $24 million, or 6%, including a $3 million, or 1%, positive impact from foreign currency fluctuations. Professional information business revenues grew 13%, primarily due to 16% growth in Risk & Compliance revenues to $72 million and 15% growth in Dow Jones Energy revenues to $62 million. Circulation revenues were flat compared to the prior year, as the continued growth in digital-only subscriptions, which benefited from an increase in bundle offers, was offset by lower print volume. Digital circulation revenues accounted for 70% of circulation revenues for the quarter, compared to 69% in the prior year.

During the second quarter, total average subscriptions to Dow Jones' consumer products were over 5.4 million, a 10% increase compared to the prior year. Digital-only subscriptions to Dow Jones' consumer products grew 15%.

Advertising revenues decreased $5 million, or 4%, primarily due to an 11% decline in print advertising revenues slightly offset by 1% growth in digital advertising revenues. Digital advertising accounted for 62% of total advertising revenues in the quarter, compared to 59% in the prior year.

Segment EBITDA for the quarter increased $24 million, or 17%, primarily as a result of the higher revenues discussed above. Adjusted Segment EBITDA increased 17%.

Book Publishing

Revenues in the quarter increased $19 million, or 4%, compared to the prior year, primarily driven by the increase in digital book sales and improved returns due to better sell through of inventory. Key titles in the quarter included The Pioneer Woman Cooks - Dinner's Ready! by Ree Drummond, The Little Liar by Mitch Albom, Tom Lake by Ann Patchett and My Effin' Life by Geddy Lee. Adjusted Revenues increased 2%. Digital sales increased 15% compared to the prior year, driven by strong market growth for downloadable audiobook sales, as well as the contribution from a new Spotify partnership. Digital sales represented 21% of Consumer revenues for the quarter compared to 19% in the prior year with audiobooks accounting for approximately half of digital revenues. Backlist sales represented approximately 60% of consumer revenues in the quarter compared to 57% in the prior year.

Segment EBITDA for the quarter increased $34 million, or 67%, compared to the prior year, primarily driven by the higher revenues discussed above and lower manufacturing, freight and distribution costs driven by product mix and the absence of prior year supply chain challenges and inventory and inflationary pressures, partly offset by higher employee costs. Adjusted Segment EBITDA increased 65%.

News Media

Revenues in the quarter decreased $16 million, or 3%, as compared to the prior year, primarily driven by lower advertising revenues, partially offset by the $13 million, or 2%, positive impact from foreign currency fluctuations and higher circulation and subscription revenues. Within the segment, revenues at News Corp Australia decreased 6%, driven by lower advertising revenues, while News UK was flat as lower advertising revenues were offset by a 5% positive impact from foreign currency fluctuations and higher circulation and subscription revenues. Adjusted Revenues for the segment decreased 5% compared to the prior year.

Circulation and subscription revenues increased $12 million, or 5%, compared to the prior year, primarily due to a $7 million, or 3%, positive impact from foreign currency fluctuations, price increases and digital subscriber growth, partially offset by lower print volumes.

Advertising revenues decreased $24 million, or 9%, compared to the prior year, primarily due to lower digital advertising across the business units mainly driven by a decline in traffic at some mastheads due to platform related changes and lower print advertising at News Corp Australia. The decline was partially offset by a $5 million, or 2%, positive impact from foreign currency fluctuations.

In the quarter, Segment EBITDA decreased $7 million, or 12%, compared to the prior year, driven by lower revenues, as discussed above, partially offset by lower production costs at News UK driven by lower volume and newsprint prices and a $2 million, or 3%, positive impact from foreign currency fluctuations. Adjusted Segment EBITDA decreased 15%.

Digital revenues represented 38% of News Media segment revenues in the quarter, compared to 37% in the prior year, and represented 36% of the combined revenues of the newspaper mastheads. Digital subscribers and users across key properties within the News Media segment are summarized below:

Closing digital subscribers at News Corp Australia as of December 31, 2023 were 1,051,000 (940,000 for news mastheads), compared to 1,011,000 (924,000 for news mastheads) in the prior year (Source: Internal data)

The Times and Sunday Times closing digital subscribers, including the Times Literary Supplement, as of December 31, 2023 were 575,000, compared to 550,000 in the prior year (Source: Internal data).

(102)

Net cash provided by operating activities of $305 million for the six months ended December 31, 2023 was $144 million higher than $161 million in the prior year, primarily due to higher Total Segment EBITDA, as noted above, lower working capital and lower tax payments, partially offset by higher restructuring payments.

Free cash flow in the six months ended December 31, 2023 was $69 million compared to $(56) million in the prior year. Free cash flow available to News Corporation in the six months ended December 31, 2023 was $(21) million compared to $(102) million in the prior year. The improvement in both free cash flow and free cash flow available to News Corporation was primarily due to higher cash provided by operating activities, as mentioned above, partially offset by higher capital expenditures. Foxtel's capital expenditures for the six months ended December 31, 2023 were $82 million compared to $84 million in the prior year.

Free cash flow and free cash flow available to News Corporation are non-GAAP financial measures. Free cash flow is defined as net cash provided by (used in) operating activities, less capital expenditures, and free cash flow available to News Corporation is defined as free cash flow, less REA Group free cash flow, plus cash dividends received from REA Group. Free cash flow and free cash flow available to News Corporation may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies, since companies and investors may differ as to what items should be included in the calculation of free cash flow.

Neither free cash flow nor free cash flow available to News Corporation represents the total increase or decrease in the cash balance for the period and should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, the net change in cash and cash equivalents as presented in the Company's consolidated statements of cash flows prepared in accordance with GAAP, which incorporates all cash movements during the period.

The Company believes free cash flow provides useful information to management and investors about the Company's liquidity and cash flow trends. The Company believes free cash flow available to News Corporation, which adjusts free cash flow to exclude REA Group's free cash flow and include dividends received from REA Group, provides management and investors with a measure of the amount of cash flow that is readily available to the Company, as REA Group is a separately listed public company in Australia and must declare a dividend in order for the Company to have access to its share of REA Group's cash balance. The Company believes free cash flow available to News Corporation provides a more conservative view of the Company's free cash flow because this presentation includes only that amount of cash the Company actually receives from REA Group, which has generally been lower than the Company's unadjusted free cash flow.

OTHER ITEMS

Dividends

The Company declared today a semi-annual cash dividend of $0.10 per share for Class A Common Stock and Class B Common Stock. This dividend is payable on April 10, 2024 to stockholders of record as of March 13, 2024.

COMPARISON OF NON-GAAP TO U.S. GAAP INFORMATION

Adjusted Revenues, Total Segment EBITDA, Adjusted Total Segment EBITDA, Adjusted Segment EBITDA, adjusted net income attributable to News Corporation stockholders, Adjusted EPS, constant currency revenues, free cash flow and free cash flow available to News Corporation are non-GAAP financial measures contained in this earnings release. The Company believes these measures are important tools for investors and analysts to use in assessing the Company's underlying business performance and to provide for more meaningful comparisons of the Company's operating performance between periods. These measures also allow investors and analysts to view the Company's business from the same perspective as Company management. These non-GAAP measures may be different than similar measures used by other companies and should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, measures of financial performance calculated in accordance with GAAP. Reconciliations for the differences between non-GAAP measures used in this earnings release and comparable financial measures calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP are included in Notes 1, 2, 3 and 4 and the reconciliation of net cash provided by operating activities to free cash flow and free cash flow available to News Corporation is included above.

Quad/Graphics, Inc. - Quad reports first quarter 2024 results - 30/4/2024

Quad reaffirms full-year 2024 financial guidance, including 1.8x Net Debt Leverage by year end

SUSSEX, WI, April 30, 2024 - Quad/Graphics, Inc. (NYSE: QUAD) ("Quad" or the "Company"), a global marketing experience company, today reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2024.

Recent highlights

Realized Net Sales of $655 million in the first quarter of 2024 compared to $767 million in 2023, and recognized a Net Loss of $28 million or $0.60 Diluted Loss Per Share for the first quarter of 2024.

Achieved Non-GAAP Adjusted EBITDA of $51 million in the first quarter of 2024 compared to $60 million in the first quarter of 2023, and reported $0.10 Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share for the first quarter of 2024.

Completed restructuring actions that are expected to generate $60 million of cost savings in 2024.

Announced In-Store Connect, a new retail solution that aims to advance the in-store shopping experience by creating digital interactions throughout physical retail environments.

Launched Household Fusion TM , a first-of-its-kind postal optimization program created to offset continued U.S. Postal Service rate hikes and further differentiate Quad as a market innovator.

Introduced the next evolution of the Company's media agency, Rise, which brings together its full range of media and owned data services under one brand.

Fitch corporate credit rating outlook revised to "Positive" from "Stable," indicating future potential upgrade from current 'B+' rating in recognition of Quad's strong financial and operational performance.

Declared quarterly dividend of $0.05 per share.

Reaffirms full-year 2024 financial guidance.

Joel Quadracci, Chairman, President and CEO of Quad, said: "Our first quarter results were in-line with our expectations, and we remain confident in our ability to achieve our full-year 2024 financial guidance. We continue to focus on growing our offerings, including strategic investments in innovative solutions and superior talent, while proactively managing ongoing revenue challenges that include external factors such as significant postal rate increases and continued economic uncertainty that negatively impact print volumes.

"During Q1, we announced our entry into the next big advertising channel - retail media networks or RMNs. EMARKETER predicts ad spend in omnichannel RMNs will grow to over $100 billion by 2027. Our solution, called

Quad In-Store Connect

, advances the in-store shopping experience by taking the best elements of digital commerce and bringing it into physical retail environments. Retailers and consumer packaged goods companies now have the ability to deliver engaging brand messages and promotions right at the store shelf - the most critical moment in the purchasing decision. We are excited to announce our partnership with The Save Mart Companies, the largest private regional grocer on the West Coast, to launch its in-store retail media network, and are in talks with several other retailers. We look forward to demonstrating how In-Store Connect can generate value for clients as we strive to become the industry standard for in-store RMNs.

"Also during Q1, we unveiled

Household Fusion

TM , a first-of-its-kind postal optimization program we proactively created to offset continued U.S. Postal Service rate hikes. This solution combines various marketing mail from different brands or, separately, various magazines from different publishers into a single package delivered to one address, creating significant postage savings. Clients like PWX Solutions, a direct marketing and production partnership formed between Hearst and Condé Nast, are enthusiastic about this solution, which reduces costs from one of a marketer's biggest budget lines.

"Additionally, we recently introduced the next evolution of our media agency,

Rise

, which brings together our full range of media and owned data services under one brand so we're even better equipped to solve client pain points. This evolution creates a truly differentiated offering in the market, including a modern integrated data stack that has privacy at its core and is resilient to industry challenges, like the deprecation of the third-party cookie.

"To reiterate, I am confident in our team, our strategy and our future as a marketing experience company. We are unwavering in our focus to enhance Quad's financial strength and create value for all our stakeholders."

Added Tony Staniak, Chief Financial Officer: "We reaffirm our full-year guidance and remain focused on delivering for our clients while enhancing our financial position, such as through our recent restructuring actions, including plant capacity and labor reduction initiatives, that we anticipate will generate $60 million in cost savings in 2024. We continue to expect strong cash generation, which we will use to further reduce Net Debt and achieve 1.8x Net Debt Leverage by the end of the year. We are pleased that our strong balance sheet and long-term commitment to debt reduction was recognized by Fitch Ratings, who recently revised our corporate credit rating outlook to Positive from Stable, indicating a potential future upgrade from our current 'B+' rating. In addition to lowering debt, we will continue to invest in accelerating our competitive position as an MX company while returning capital to shareholders through our regular quarterly dividend, and we expect to be opportunistic in terms of our future share repurchases."

First quarter 2024 financial results

Net Sales were $655 million in the first quarter of 2024, a decrease of 15% compared to the same period in 2023 primarily due to lower paper, print and agency solutions sales, including the loss of a large grocery client.

Net Loss was $28 million in the first quarter of 2024 compared to Net Loss of $25 million in the first quarter of 2023. The decrease is primarily due to lower sales and higher restructuring and impairment charges, partially offset by benefits from improved manufacturing productivity, savings from cost reduction initiatives and lower income tax expense.

Adjusted EBITDA was $51 million in the first quarter of 2024 as compared to $60 million in the same period in 2023. The decrease was primarily due to lower sales, partially offset by benefits from improved manufacturing productivity and savings from cost reduction initiatives.

Adjusted Diluted Earnings Per Share was $0.10 in the first quarter of 2024, as compared to $0.15 in the first quarter of 2023, primarily due to lower adjusted net earnings, partially offset by the beneficial impact from the Company repurchasing Class A shares totaling approximately 11% of its outstanding shares since the second quarter of 2022.

Net Cash Used in Operating Activities was $52 million in the first quarter of 2024, compared to $51 million in the first quarter of 2023. Free Cash Flow improved $9 million from last year to negative $70 million in the first quarter of 2024 primarily due to reduced capital expenditures. As a reminder, the Company historically generates most of its Free Cash Flow in the fourth quarter of the year.

Net Debt increased by $74 million to $544 million at March 31, 2024, as compared to $470 million at December 31, 2023, primarily due to the negative $70 million Free Cash Flow in the first quarter of 2024. We continue to expect to reduce Net Debt to approximately $405 million, or 1.8x Net Debt Leverage, at the end of this year.

Dividend

Quad's next quarterly dividend of $0.05 per share will be payable on June 7, 2024, to shareholders of record as of May 22, 2024.

The Company's full-year 2024 financial guidance is unchanged and is as follows:

The Walt Disney Company - The Walt Disney Company Reports Second Quarter and Six Months Earnings for Fiscal 2024 - 7/5/2024

BURBANK, Calif.-The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS) today reported earnings for its second quarter ended March 30, 2024.

Financial Results for the Quarter:

Revenues for the quarter increased to $22.1 billion from $21.8 billion in the prior-year quarter.

Diluted earnings per share (EPS) was a loss of $0.01 for the current quarter compared to income of $0.69 in the prior-year quarter. Diluted EPS decreased to a nominal loss due to goodwill impairments in the quarter, partially offset by higher operating income at Entertainment and Experiences.

Excluding certain items (1) , diluted EPS for the quarter increased to $1.21 from $0.93 in the prior-year quarter.

Key Points:

In the second fiscal quarter of 2024, we achieved strong double digit percentage growth in adjusted EPS (1) , and met or exceeded our financial guidance for the quarter.

As a result of outperformance in the second quarter, our new full year adjusted EPS (1) growth target is now 25%.

We remain on track to generate approximately $14 billion of cash provided by operations and over $8 billion of free cash flow (1) this fiscal year.

We repurchased $1 billion worth of shares in the second quarter and look forward to continuing to return capital to shareholders.

The Entertainment Direct-to-Consumer business was profitable in the second quarter. While we are expecting softer Entertainment DTC results in Q3 to be driven by Disney+ Hotstar, we continue to expect our combined streaming businesses to be profitable in the fourth quarter, and to be a meaningful future growth driver for the company, with further improvements in profitability in fiscal 2025.

Disney+ Core subscribers increased by more than 6 million in the second quarter, and Disney+ Core ARPU increased sequentially by 44 cents.

Sports operating income declined slightly versus the prior year, reflecting the timing impact of College Football Playoff games at ESPN, offset by improved results at Star India.

The Experiences business was also a growth driver in the second quarter, with revenue growth of 10%, segment operating income growth of 12%, and margin expansion of 60 basis points versus the prior year. Although the third quarter's segment operating income is expected to come in roughly comparable to the prior year, we continue to expect robust operating income growth at Experiences for the full year.

Diluted EPS excluding certain items (also referred to herein as adjusted EPS) and free cash flow are non-GAAP financial measures. The most comparable GAAP measures are diluted EPS and cash provided by operations, respectively. See the discussion on pages 17 through 21 for how we define and calculate these measures and a quantitative reconciliation of historical measures thereof and the forward-looking measure of free cash flow to the most directly comparable GAAP measures and why the Company is not providing a forward-looking quantitative reconciliation of diluted EPS excluding certain items to the most comparable GAAP measure.

Message From Our CEO:

"Our strong performance in Q2, with adjusted EPS (1) up 30% compared to the prior year, demonstrates we are delivering on our strategic priorities and building for the future," said Robert A. Iger, Chief Executive Officer, The Walt Disney Company. "Our results were driven in large part by our Experiences segment as well as our streaming business. Importantly, entertainment streaming was profitable for the quarter, and we remain on track to achieve profitability in our combined streaming businesses in Q4.

"Looking at our company as a whole, it's clear that the turnaround and growth initiatives we set in motion last year have continued to yield positive results. We have a number of highly anticipated theatrical releases arriving over the next few months; our television shows are resonating with audiences and critics alike; ESPN continues to break ratings records as we further its evolution into the preeminent digital sports platform; and we are turbocharging growth in our Experiences business with a number of near- and long-term strategic investments."

The decrease in domestic operating income in the current quarter compared to the prior-year quarter was due to:

Lower affiliate revenue primarily due to a decrease in subscribers including the impact of the non-renewal of carriage of certain networks by an affiliate, partially offset by higher contractual rates

A decline in advertising revenue attributable to a decrease in impressions reflecting lower average viewership, partially offset by higher rates

International

Lower international operating income was due to a decrease in affiliate revenue primarily attributable to fewer subscribers and contractual rate decreases.

Equity in the Income of Investees

Income from equity investees decreased due to lower income from A+E Television Networks (A+E) attributable to decreases in advertising and affiliate revenue.

The improvement in operating results in the current quarter compared to the prior-year quarter was due to:

Subscription revenue growth attributable to higher rates due to increases in retail pricing across our streaming services, and subscriber growth at Disney+ Core

Lower distribution costs

An increase in advertising revenue due to higher impressions, partially offset by lower rates

Higher marketing costs

An increase in programming and production costs due to more programming on our services and higher subscriber-based fees for programming the Hulu Live TV service, partially offset by lower average costs per hour of content available on our services

The increase in Hulu Live TV subscriber-based fees was due to rate increases and more subscribers

Second Quarter of Fiscal 2024 Comparison to First Quarter of Fiscal 2024

In addition to revenue, costs and operating income, management uses the following key metrics to analyze trends and evaluate the overall performance of our Disney+ and Hulu direct-to-consumer (DTC) product offerings (1) , and we believe these metrics are useful to investors in analyzing the business. The following tables and related discussion are on a sequential quarter basis.

Domestic Disney+ average monthly revenue per paid subscriber decreased from $8.15 to $8.00 due to a higher mix of wholesale subscribers, partially offset by increases in retail pricing.

International Disney+ (excluding Disney+ Hotstar) average monthly revenue per paid subscriber increased from $5.91 to $6.66 due to increases in retail pricing and a lower mix of subscribers to promotional offerings.

Disney+ Hotstar average monthly revenue per paid subscriber decreased from $1.28 to $0.70 due to lower advertising revenue.

Hulu SVOD Only average monthly revenue per paid subscriber decreased from $12.29 to $11.84 due to lower advertising revenue, partially offset by increases in retail pricing.

Domestic ESPN

Lower domestic ESPN operating results in the current quarter compared to the prior-year quarter were due to:

An increase in programming and production costs attributable to higher costs for College Football Playoff (CFP) programming as a result of airing an additional game in the current quarter due to timing. In the current quarter, we aired the championship game, two semi-final games and one host game compared to the airing of the championship game and two host games in the prior-year quarter.

Lower affiliate revenue driven by fewer subscribers, partially offset by contractual rate increases

Advertising revenue growth primarily due to increases in rates and, to a lesser extent, average viewership. These increases include benefits from the additional CFP game and an additional NFL playoff game in the current quarter.

Growth in ESPN+ subscription revenue due to higher rates

Star India

The decrease in operating loss at Star India was due to lower programming and production costs attributable to the non-renewal of Board of Control for Cricket in India rights, partially offset by an increase in costs for Indian Premier League matches due to more matches aired in the current quarter compared to the prior-year quarter.

Domestic Parks and Experiences

The increase in operating income at our domestic parks and experiences was due to higher results at Walt Disney World Resort and Disney Cruise Line, partially offset by lower results at Disneyland Resort.

At Walt Disney World Resort, higher results in the current quarter compared to the prior-year quarter were due to:

Increased guest spending attributable to higher average ticket prices

Higher costs due to inflation, partially offset by lower depreciation and cost saving initiatives

Growth at Disney Cruise Line was due to an increase in average ticket prices, partially offset by higher costs

The decrease in operating results at Disneyland Resort was due to:

Higher costs driven by inflation

An increase in guest spending attributable to higher average ticket prices and daily hotel room rates

Higher volumes due to attendance growth, partially offset by lower occupied room nights

International Parks and Experiences

Higher international parks and experiences' operating results were due to:

An increase in operating results at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort attributable to:

Guest spending growth due to increases in average ticket prices and food, beverage and merchandise spending

Higher volumes resulting from increases in attendance and occupied room nights. Volume growth benefitted from additional days of operations in the current quarter as well as the opening of World of Frozen in November 2023

Increased costs driven by inflation and new guest offerings

Consumer Products

The increase in consumer products operating results was driven by higher games licensing revenue.

DTC streaming businesses operating loss is not a financial measure defined by GAAP. The most comparable GAAP measures are segment operating income for the Entertainment segment and Sports segment. See the discussion on page 21 for how we define and calculate this measure and a reconciliation of it to the most directly comparable GAAP measures.

Corporate and Unallocated Shared Expenses

Corporate and unallocated shared expenses increased $112 million for the quarter, from $279 million to $391 million, primarily attributable to:

Higher costs related to our proxy solicitation and annual shareholder meeting

Increased compensation costs

Other cost inflation

Restructuring and Impairment Charges

In the current quarter, the Company recorded charges of $2,052 million due to goodwill impairments related to Star India and entertainment linear networks. The impairment at Star India was a result of the Company entering into a binding agreement in the current quarter to contribute our Star India operations into a new joint venture. In the prior-year quarter, the Company recorded charges of $152 million primarily for severance.

Other Income, net

In the prior-year quarter, the Company recorded a $149 million gain to adjust its investment in DraftKings, Inc. to fair value.

The increase in net income attributable to noncontrolling interests was primarily due to improved results at Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, partially offset by the comparison to the accretion of NBC Universal's interest in Hulu in the prior-year quarter with no accretion in the current quarter as we had fully accreted to the amount paid in December 2023.

Net income attributable to noncontrolling interests is determined on income after royalties and management fees, financing costs and income taxes, as applicable.

Free cash flow is not a financial measure defined by GAAP. The most comparable GAAP measure is cash provided by operations. See the discussion on pages 17 through 21.

Cash provided by operations increased $3.6 billion to $5.9 billion in the current period from $2.3 billion in the prior-year period. The increase was due to lower film and television production spending and the timing of payments for sports rights. The increase also reflected lower collateral payments related to our hedging program, a payment in the prior-year period related to the termination of content licenses in fiscal 2022 and higher operating income at Experiences. These increases were partially offset by payment in the current period of fiscal 2023 federal and California income taxes, which were deferred pursuant to relief provided by the Internal Revenue Service and California State Board of Equalization as a result of 2023 winter storms in California.
