Tribune Media Company Reports Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2016 Results

NEW YORK, March 1, 2017 — Tribune Media Company (the “Company”) (NYSE: TRCO) today reported its results for the three months and year ended December 31, 2016.

FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL-YEAR 2016 FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS (compared to the prior year period)

 

    In January 2017, the Company completed the sale of substantially all of its Digital and Data business to Nielsen. The historical results of operations for the businesses included in the sale are reported as discontinued operations for all periods presented. All references made to financial data in this release are to Tribune Media Company’s continuing operations.

 

    Consolidated operating revenues increased 11% to $529.6 million for the fourth quarter and increased 8% to $1,947.9 million for the full year

 

    Consolidated operating profit increased 129% to $113.2 million for the fourth quarter and increased 261% to $433.6 million for the full year

 

    Consolidated Adjusted EBITDA increased 38% to $181.5 million for the fourth quarter and increased 21% to $531.1 million for the full year

 

    Total Television and Entertainment net advertising revenues (which includes political and digital revenues) increased 10% to $384.6 million for the fourth quarter and increased 5% to $1,374.6 million for the full year

 

    Retransmission revenue increased 20% to $89.2 million for the fourth quarter and increased 18% to $334.7 million for the full year

 

    Carriage fee revenue increased 35% to $30.7 million for the fourth quarter and increased 42% to $121.0 million for the full year

 

    Digital ad revenue increased 7% to $18.9 million for the fourth quarter and increased 12% to $66.6 million for the full year

“Bolstered by record fourth quarter revenues, Tribune Media’s financial results for 2016 were very strong,” said Peter Liguori, Tribune Media’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Consolidated revenues grew 8% and consolidated Adjusted EBITDA was up 21% over last year, driven by strong political advertising revenue and solid growth in retransmission and carriage fee revenues. These results are a clear demonstration that our operational strategies continue delivering value for our shareholders. In addition, last year’s monetization of real estate assets for more than $500 million and the recent sale of Gracenote enables Tribune Media to be a more focused television company, uniquely positioned to take advantage of the opportunities presented by a rapidly changing media environment.”
