Time Warner Inc. Reports Second-Quarter 2013 Results

07:00 EDT Wednesday, August 07, 2013

NEW YORK (Business Wire) -- Time Warner Inc. (NYSE:TWX) today reported financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bewkes said: “We had a very strong quarter and first half financially and operationally, putting us on track for another great year. During the second quarter, we grew revenues by 10%, Adjusted Operating Income by 25%, and Adjusted EPS by nearly 50%. Our Networks businesses, Turner and HBO, continued to shine, reflecting the success of our increased investments in distinctive programming that is resonating with audiences, advertisers and affiliates. For example, TNT and TBS finished the second quarter as the #1 and #3 ad-supported cable networks in primetime for adults 18-49 on the strength of original dramas like Falling Skies, Major Crimes and Dallas, comedies like The Big Bang Theory and Cougar Town and another very strong showing for the NBA Playoffs. CNN also grew ratings by almost 70% in its key demo, taking share from competing news networks. HBO continues to benefit from the strongest programming lineup in its history, including Game of Thrones, which finished its third season up more than 20% in viewers, and the made-for-HBO film Behind the Candelabra – the most watched HBO film in a decade. Underscoring that strength, HBO recently received 108 Primetime Emmy nominations, the most of any network for the thirteenth year in a row and more than double the closest competitor. At Warner Bros., we had a fantastic quarter, including one of its most successful upfront seasons ever, with orders for 31 new and returning shows from the broadcast networks. And we had a strong theatrical quarter with our blockbuster reboot of the Superman franchise, Man of Steel,and The Great Gatsby. Reflecting our confidence in our outlook and our commitment to stockholder returns, so far this year we've repurchased $1.8 billion of our stock and paid out over $500 million in dividends.”

Company Results

Revenues increased 10%to $7.4 billion in the second quarter of 2013 as growth at the Film and TV Entertainment and Networks segments more than offset a modest decline at the Publishing segment. Adjusted Operating Income rose 25% to $1.5 billion due to growth at all segments as well as a year-over-year decrease in intersegment eliminations. Operating Income increased 42% to $1.5 billion. Adjusted Operating Income and Operating Income margins were both 20% for the second quarter of 2013 compared to 18% and 16% in the second quarter of 2012, respectively.

In the second quarter, the Company posted Adjusted Diluted Net Income per Common Share (“Adjusted EPS”) of $0.83versus $0.571 for the year-ago quarter. Diluted Income per Common Share was $0.81 for the three months ended June 30, 2013 compared to $0.421 for last year's second quarter.

On March 6, 2013, Time Warner announced that its Board of Directors has authorized management to proceed with plans for the complete legal and structural separation of the Company's Publishing segment from Time Warner. In the second quarter of 2013, excluding Publishing, Revenues grew 12%, Adjusted Operating Income rose 24% and Operating Income increased 44%.

For the first six months of 2013, Cash Provided by Operations from Continuing Operations reached $1.6billion and Free Cash Flow totaled $1.8 billion. As of June 30, 2013, Net Debt was $17.4billion, up from $17.0 billion at the end of 2012, due to share repurchases and dividends, partially offset by the generation of Free Cash Flow and proceeds from the exercise of stock options.

Refer to “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” in this release for a discussion of the non-GAAP financial measures used in this release and the reconciliations of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Stock Repurchase Program Update

In January 2013, the Company's Board of Directors authorized a total of $4 billion in share repurchases beginning January 1, 2013, which replaced the amount remaining under the prior authorization.

From January 1, 2013 through August 2, 2013, the Company repurchased approximately 32 million shares of common stock for approximately $1.8 billion. These amounts reflect the purchase of 16 million shares of common stock for $956 million since the amounts reported in the Company's first quarter earnings release issued on May 1, 2013.

Presented below is a discussion of the performance of Time Warner's segments for the second quarter of 2013. Unless otherwise noted, the dollar amounts in parentheses represent year-over-year changes.

NETWORKS (Turner Broadcasting and HBO)

Revenues increased 7% ($243 million) to $3.8 billion, with increases of 4% ($97 million) in Subscription revenues, 11% ($129 million) in Advertising revenues and 5% ($13 million) in Content revenues. Subscription revenues primarily benefited from higher domestic rates and international growth, partially offset by the negative effect of foreign currency exchange rates. The increase in Advertising revenues was largely driven by growth at Turner's domestic entertainment networks, principally due to higher pricing, strong demand for the NBA Playoffs on TNT, and the timing of the 2013 NCAA Division I Men's Basketball National Championship tournament (the “NCAA Tournament”). This increase was partially offset by the shutdown of Turner's TNT television operations in Turkey in the second quarter of 2012. Content revenues increased due to higher sales of HBO's original programming.

Adjusted Operating Income grew 13% ($144 million) to $1.3 billion, reflecting higher revenues partly offset by increased expenses. Programming costs grew 8%, primarily due to higher spending on sports and original programming. The increase in sports programming costs was mainly due to the timing of the NCAA Tournament. Adjusted Operating Income also benefited from an adjustment to a receivable allowance ($31 million) and was negatively affected by increased restructuring and severance expenses ($16 million).

Operating Income increased 31% ($300 million) to $1.3 billion. The prior year quarter included $147 million in charges related to the shutdown of Turner's general entertainment network, Imagine, in India and TNT television operations in Turkey.

TNT was ad-supported cable's #1 network with adults 18-49 and 25-54 in primetime in the second quarter of 2013. The NBA Eastern Conference Finals averaged 8.4 million total viewers, up 8% compared to TNT's coverage of the Western Conference Finals in 2012. The fourth season of Rizzoli & Isles on TNT has ranked as the #1 ad-supported cable series of the summer through July 28 in total viewers. In the second quarter, TBS was the #3 ad-supported cable network with adults 18-34 and 18-49 in primetime, and The Big Bang Theory on TBS remained the #1 comedy on ad-supported cable among total viewers and adults 18-49 for the sixth consecutive quarter.

HBO received 108 Primetime Emmy nominations in July, the most for any network for the thirteenth year in a row and more than double the closest competitor. Nominations included Outstanding Drama Series for Game of Thrones, Outstanding Comedy Series for Girls and VEEP and Outstanding Miniseries or Movie for Behind the Candelabra and Phil Spector. Game of Thrones averaged 14.2 million viewers per episode during its third season, an increase of over 20% compared to its second season and the second highest viewership ever for an HBO series, behind only The Sopranos. HBO recently added Apple TV to the devices supporting HBO GO, its authenticated online video service.

FILM AND TV ENTERTAINMENT (Warner Bros.)

Revenues increased 13% ($327 million) to $2.9 billion mainly due to a stronger theatrical release slate, which included Man of Steel, The Hangover Part III and The Great Gatsby, as well as an increase in international television syndication and subscription video-on-demand revenues. These gains were partially offset by a decline in domestic television licensing revenue due to the initial off-network availability of The Mentalist in the prior year quarter.

Adjusted Operating Income increased 34% ($47 million) to $184 million primarily due to higher revenues, partly offset by higher associated film costs, and increased advertising and restructuring and severance expenses.

Operating Income increased 35% ($47 million) to $181 million.

From its opening on June 14 through August 4, Man of Steel grossed over $600 million worldwide at the box office. During the recent upfronts, Warner Bros. Television Group led all studios with orders for 18 returning series and 13 new series on the U.S. broadcast networks' primetime schedules for the 2013-2014 television season, marking the highest number of returning series for the studio in more than 30 years.

PUBLISHING (Time Inc.)

Revenues declined 3%($25 million)to $833 million, reflecting declines of 5% ($24 million) in Advertising revenues and 7% ($19 million) in Subscription revenues, partially offset by a 23% ($17 million) increase in Other revenues. Advertising revenues decreased due to lower magazine advertising revenues. The decrease in Subscription revenues was primarily due to lower worldwide newsstand revenues.

Operating Income increased 28% ($27 million) to $124 million, primarily due to lower expenses as a result of operational cost savings, including from the restructuring actions taken in the first quarter of 2013.

During the first half of 2013, Time Inc. maintained its leading share of overall domestic magazine advertising with 22.2% (Publishers Information Bureau data).

CONSOLIDATED NET INCOME AND PER SHARE RESULTS

Adjusted EPS was $0.83for the three months ended June 30, 2013, compared to $0.571 in last year's second quarter. The increase in Adjusted EPS primarily reflects higher Adjusted Operating Income and fewer shares outstanding.

For the three months ended June 30, 2013, the Company reported Net Income attributable to Time Warner Inc. shareholders of$771million, or $0.81per diluted common share. This compares to Net Income attributable to Time Warner Inc. shareholders in 2012's second quarter of$413 million1, or $0.421 per diluted common share.

For the second quarter of 2013 and 2012, the Company reported Net Income of$771million and$412 million1, respectively.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The Company utilizes Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) and Adjusted Operating Income margin, among other measures, to evaluate the performance of its businesses. In light of the pending legal and structural separation of the Company's Publishing segment from Time Warner, the Company also uses Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) excluding Publishing to further evaluate the non-publishing businesses. Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) is Operating Income (Loss) excluding the impact of noncash impairments of goodwill, intangible and fixed assets; gains and losses on operating assets; gains and losses recognized in connection with pension plan curtailments, settlements or termination benefits; external costs related to mergers, acquisitions or dispositions, as well as contingent consideration related to such transactions, to the extent such costs are expensed; and amounts related to securities litigation and government investigations. Adjusted Operating Income margin is defined as Adjusted Operating Income divided by Revenues. These measures are considered important indicators of the operational strength of the Company's businesses.

Adjusted Net Income attributable to Time Warner Inc. common shareholders is Net Income attributable to Time Warner Inc. common shareholders excluding noncash impairments of goodwill, intangible and fixed assets and investments; gains and losses on operating assets, liabilities and investments; gains and losses recognized in connection with pension plan curtailments, settlements or termination benefits; external costs related to mergers, acquisitions, investments or dispositions, as well as contingent consideration related to such transactions, to the extent such costs are expensed; amounts related to securities litigation and government investigations; and amounts attributable to businesses classified as discontinued operations, as well as the impact of taxes and noncontrolling interests on the above items. Similarly, Adjusted EPS is Diluted Net Income per Common Share attributable to Time Warner Inc. common shareholders excluding the above items.

Adjusted Net Income attributable to Time Warner Inc. common shareholders and Adjusted EPS are considered important indicators of the operational strength of the Company's businesses as these measures eliminate amounts that do not reflect the fundamental performance of the Company's businesses. The Company utilizes Adjusted EPS, among other measures, to evaluate the performance of its businesses both on an absolute basis and relative to its peers and the broader market. Many investors also use an adjusted EPS measure as a common basis for comparing the performance of different companies. Some limitations of Adjusted Operating Income (Loss), Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) for the Company's businesses excluding Publishing, Adjusted Operating Income margin, Adjusted Net Income attributable to Time Warner Inc. common shareholders and Adjusted EPS are that they do not reflect certain charges that affect the operating results of the Company's businesses and they involve judgment as to whether items affect fundamental operating performance.

For periods ending on or after July 1, 2012, Free Cash Flow is defined as Cash Provided by Operations from Continuing Operations plus payments related to securities litigation and government investigations (net of any insurance recoveries), external costs related to mergers, acquisitions, investments or dispositions, to the extent such costs are expensed, contingent consideration payments made in connection with acquisitions, and excess tax benefits from equity instruments, less capital expenditures, principal payments on capital leases and partnership distributions, if any. For periods ending prior to that date, Free Cash Flow is defined as Cash Provided by Operations from Continuing Operations plus payments related to securities litigation and government investigations (net of any insurance recoveries), external costs related to mergers, acquisitions, investments or dispositions, to the extent such costs are expensed, and excess tax benefits from equity instruments, less capital expenditures, principal payments on capital leases and partnership distributions, if any. A change to the definition of Free Cash Flow for periods prior to July 1, 2012 to adjust for contingent consideration payments made in connection with acquisitions would have had no impact on the Free Cash Flow for such periods. The Company uses Free Cash Flow to evaluate its businesses and this measure is considered an important indicator of the Company's liquidity, including its ability to reduce net debt, make strategic investments, pay dividends to common shareholders and repurchase stock.

A general limitation of these measures is that they are not prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies due to differences in methods of calculation and excluded items. Adjusted Operating Income (Loss), Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) excluding Publishing, Adjusted Net Income attributable to Time Warner Inc. common shareholders, Adjusted EPS and Free Cash Flow should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, the Company's Operating Income (Loss), Net Income attributable to Time Warner Inc. common shareholders, Diluted Net Income per Common Share and various cash flow measures (e.g., Cash Provided by Operations from Continuing Operations), as well as other measures of financial performance and liquidity reported in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.

Note 4. INVESTMENTS IN CENTRAL EUROPEAN MEDIA ENTERPRISES LTD. (“CME”)

CME is a publicly-traded broadcasting company operating leading networks in six Central and Eastern European countries. Since Time Warner's initial investment in CME in May 2009, CME founder and Non-Executive Chairman Ronald S. Lauder had controlled the voting rights associated with Time Warner's shares in CME pursuant to a voting agreement between the parties. During the second quarter of 2013, the voting agreement ended and Time Warner assumed control of the voting rights associated with its shares of Class A common stock and Series A convertible preferred stock. Prior to the second quarter of 2013, Time Warner accounted for its investment in CME under the cost method of accounting. However, as a result of the end of the voting agreement with Mr. Lauder, Time Warner began accounting for its investment in the Class A common stock and Series A convertible preferred stock of CME under the equity method of accounting. In accordance with applicable accounting guidance, Time Warner has recast its historical financial results to reflect the presentation of its investment in the Class A common stock and Series A convertible preferred stock of CME under the equity method of accounting for all prior periods from the date of Time Warner's initial investment in CME in May 2009.

The recast resulted in an increase in net income of $34 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013 and a decrease in net income of $17 million and $22 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012, respectively.
