21st Century Fox Reports Second Quarter Income from Continuing Operations Attributable to 21st Century Fox Stockholders of $1.84 Billion, a 114% Increase over the Prior Year Quarter and Revenues of $8.04 Billion, a 5% Increase over the Prior Year Quarter

NEW YORK--()--Twenty-First Century Fox, Inc. (“21st Century Fox” or the “Company” -- NASDAQ: FOXA, FOX) today reported financial results for the three months ended December 31, 2017.

The Company reported quarterly income from continuing operations attributable to 21st Century Fox stockholders of $1.84 billion ($0.99 per share), a 114% increase compared to $857 million ($0.46 per share) reported in the prior year quarter. The current quarter income from continuing operations attributable to 21st Century Fox stockholders includes a tax benefit of $1.34 billion, or $0.72 per share, due to a non-cash remeasurement of the Company’s net deferred tax liability related to the enactment of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Excluding the net income effects of Impairment and restructuring charges, Other, net, tax reform remeasurement benefit and adjustments to Equity losses of affiliates1, adjusted quarterly earnings per share from continuing operations attributable to 21st Century Fox stockholders2 was $0.42 compared to the adjusted result of $0.53 for the same quarter of the prior year.

The Company reported total quarterly revenues of $8.04 billion, a $355 million, or 5%, increase from the $7.68 billion of revenues reported in the prior year quarter. This increase reflects higher affiliate, syndication and advertising revenues reported at the Cable Network Programming segment partially offset by lower revenues reported at the Television segment.

Quarterly income from continuing operations before income tax benefit (expense) of $703 million decreased 49% from the $1.39 billion reported in the prior year quarter. Quarterly total segment operating income before depreciation and amortization (“OIBDA”)3 of $1.44 billion was 28% lower than the prior year quarter as higher contributions from the Cable Network Programming segment were more than offset by lower contributions from the Company’s Television and Filmed Entertainment segments.

Commenting on the results, Executive Chairmen Rupert and Lachlan Murdoch said:

“We delivered another quarter of solid top-line revenue growth including the further acceleration of gains in global affiliate revenues and despite challenging revenue comparisons for our TV segment. Our results also reflect increased investment behind higher volumes of global sporting events as well as film releases from our studio, which led the industry in Golden Globe awards and Oscar nominations. Looking ahead, we are focused on continuing to deliver value to our shareholders through achieving our near-term growth plans, completing our proposed acquisition of the balance of Sky, obtaining the required approvals for the successful completion of our transaction with Disney and planning for the exciting launch of the new ‘Fox’.”

CABLE NETWORK PROGRAMMING

Cable Network Programming quarterly segment OIBDA increased 3% compared to the prior year quarter to $1.37 billion, driven by an 11% revenue increase on higher affiliate, syndication and advertising revenues partially offset by a 15% increase in expenses. The increase in expenses was primarily due to higher global sports programming costs reflecting the inaugural broadcasts of Big Ten college football at FS1 and Argentine Football Association matches at Fox Networks Group International (“FNG International”) as well as the impact of contractual increases and more National Basketball Association games at the regional sports networks due to the earlier start of the season and a shift in timing of cricket matches at STAR India (“STAR”).

Domestic affiliate revenue increased 12% driven by contractual rate increases across all of our domestic brands. Domestic advertising revenue decreased 3% from the prior year period due to lower general entertainment ratings primarily reflecting a lower volume of original series in the current quarter. Domestic OIBDA contributions increased 1% over the prior year quarter as higher contributions from Fox News were partially offset by lower contributions from the domestic sports networks and National Geographic.

International affiliate revenue increased 13% driven by rate and subscriber growth at both FNG International and STAR. International advertising revenue increased 14% led by double digit growth at STAR and continued growth at FNG International. International OIBDA contributions were 8% higher than the prior year quarter as higher contributions at FNG International and STAR entertainment networks were partially offset by lower contributions at STAR sports networks where higher sports programming costs more than offset the higher reported revenues.

TELEVISION

Television reported quarterly segment OIBDA of $56 million, a decrease of 85% compared to the prior year quarter. Quarterly segment revenues were 6% lower than the corresponding period in the prior year as higher retransmission consent revenue was more than offset by lower advertising revenues reflecting lower cyclical political revenues at the TV stations, lower National Football League and World Series ratings and the absence of revenue generated in the prior year quarter by the granting of a license of one of our television stations to permit the commercial use of adjacent wireless spectrum in that market. The decrease in segment OIBDA was primarily driven by the lower revenues as well as higher contractual sports programming costs at the FOX Broadcast Network, including a higher volume of college football and National Football League games broadcast in the current year quarter.

FILMED ENTERTAINMENT

Filmed Entertainment generated quarterly segment OIBDA of $131 million, a 66% decrease from the $389 million reported in the prior year quarter. The OIBDA decrease was driven primarily by higher theatrical releasing costs which more than offset higher theatrical revenues in the current quarter to support a heavier theatrical film release slate which included Murder On The Orient Express, Ferdinand, The Greatest Showman, The Shape Of Water (winner of 2 Golden Globes and nominated for 13 Academy Awards), Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri (winner of 4 Golden Globes and nominated for 7 Academy Awards) and The Post. Partially offsetting these higher expenses were higher television production contributions reflecting higher subscription video-on-demand revenues. Quarterly segment revenues of $2.25 billion were similar to a year-ago as higher television production revenues offset lower film studio revenues reflecting lower home entertainment and pay and free TV licensing revenues.

Quarterly equity losses of affiliates were $33 million as compared to $41 million reported in the same period a year-ago. The $8 million decrease in losses primarily reflects improved results reported at Sky and Endemol Shine Group partially offset by higher equity losses at Hulu and a write-down of our equity method investment in certain businesses in Asia and Africa.

OTHER ITEMS

Acquisition by Disney and Creation of New “Fox”

On December 14, 2017, the Company announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement for The Walt Disney Company (NYSE: DIS) to acquire the Company, including the Twentieth Century Fox Film and Television studios, along with cable and international TV businesses, for approximately $52.4 billion in stock (subject to adjustment). Prior to the acquisition, the Company will separate the Fox Broadcasting network and its owned and operated television stations, Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, FS1, FS2, Big Ten Network and certain other assets into a newly listed company that will be spun off to its shareholders. The transaction is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, including regulatory and shareholder approval, the receipt of a tax ruling from the Australian Taxation Office and certain tax opinions with respect to the treatment of the transaction under U.S. and Australian tax laws, and other customary closing conditions. The transaction is expected to be completed approximately 12 to 18 months from December 13, 2017.

Pending Acquisition of the Remaining Shares of Sky

The Company’s pending acquisition of the public shares of Sky has been cleared on public interest and plurality grounds in all of the markets in which Sky operates except the UK, including Austria, Germany, Italy and the Republic of Ireland. The acquisition has also received unconditional clearance by all relevant competition authorities. The transaction is subject to certain other customary closing conditions and the requisite approval of Sky shareholders unaffiliated with the Company. On September 20, 2017, the U.K. Secretary of State referred the proposed transaction to the Competition and Market Authority (CMA) for a second phase review on grounds of media plurality and broadcasting standards. On January 23, 2018, the CMA published its notice of provisional findings on media plurality and broadcasting standards which provisionally found that the Company has a genuine commitment to broadcasting standards and the transaction is not likely to operate against the public interest in this respect but did raise provisional public interest concerns regarding media plurality. In addition, the CMA elected to avail itself of the statutory 8-week extension, moving its deadline for the provision of its final report to the U.K. Secretary of State to May 1, 2018. The Company anticipates regulatory approval of the transaction by June 30, 2018.

Dividends

The Company has declared a dividend of $0.18 per Class A and Class B share. The dividend declared is payable on April 18, 2018 with a record date for determining dividend entitlements of March 14, 2018.

NOTE 1 – TOTAL SEGMENT OPERATING INCOME BEFORE DEPRECIATION AND AMORTIZATION

The Company evaluates the performance of its operating segments based on segment operating income before depreciation and amortization (“OIBDA”), and management uses total segment OIBDA as a measure of the performance of operating businesses separate from non-operating factors. Total segment OIBDA may be considered a non-GAAP measure and should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, net income, cash flow and other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP. In addition, this measure does not reflect cash available to fund requirements. This measure excludes items, such as depreciation and amortization as well as impairment charges, that are significant components in assessing the Company’s financial performance.

Management believes that total segment OIBDA is an appropriate measure for evaluating the operating performance of the Company’s business and provides investors and equity analysts a measure to analyze operating performance of the Company’s business and enterprise value against historical data and competitors’ data. Segment OIBDA is the primary measure used by our chief operating decision maker to evaluate the performance of and allocate resources to the Company’s business segments.

Segment OIBDA does not include depreciation and amortization and the amortization of cable distribution investments and eliminates the variable effect across all business segments of depreciation and amortization. Depreciation and amortization expense includes the depreciation of property and equipment, as well as amortization of finite-lived intangible assets. Amortization of cable distribution investments represents a reduction against revenues over the term of a carriage arrangement and, as such, it is excluded from segment operating income before depreciation and amortization.

In addition, total segment OIBDA does not include: (Loss) income from discontinued operations, net of tax, Impairment and restructuring charges, Equity (losses) earnings of affiliates, Interest expense, net, Interest income, Other, net, Income tax benefit (expense) and Net income attributable to noncontrolling interests.

NOTE 2 – ADJUSTED NET INCOME AND ADJUSTED EPS FROM CONTINUING OPERATIONS

The calculation of income and earnings per share (“EPS”) from continuing operations attributable to 21st Century Fox stockholders excluding the net income effects of Impairment and restructuring charges, Equity affiliate adjustments, Other, net, tax reform remeasurement benefit and tax provision adjustments (“adjusted income and diluted EPS from continuing operations attributable to 21st Century Fox stockholders”) may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies. Adjusted income and diluted EPS from continuing operations attributable to 21st Century Fox stockholders are not measures of performance under generally accepted accounting principles and should not be construed as substitutes for consolidated net income and EPS as determined under GAAP as a measure of performance. However, management uses these measures in comparing the Company’s historical performance and believes that they provide meaningful and comparable information to investors to assist in their analysis of our performance relative to prior periods and our competitors.

The Company uses adjusted income and diluted EPS from continuing operations attributable to 21st Century Fox stockholders to evaluate the performance of the Company’s operations exclusive of certain items that impact the comparability of results from period to period.

The following table reconciles reported income and reported diluted EPS from continuing operations attributable to 21st Century Fox stockholders to adjusted income and diluted EPS from continuing operations attributable to 21st Century Fox stockholders for the three months ended December 31, 2017 and 2016.
