NEW YORK, April 26, 2018 – Time Warner Inc. (NYSE:TWX) today reported financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2018.

Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bewkes said: “We’re off to a strong start to 2018 and we remain on track to meet the financial goals we laid out at the beginning of the year, as we continue to execute our strategic objectives, including investing in and delivering the most compelling content to audiences around the globe and across platforms. Turner had another successful multiplatform airing of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament, while CNN was the #1 news network among adults 18-34 and remained the leader in digital news. Additionally, year-to-date, TNT’s The Alienist is the #1 new cable drama and TBS’s The Last O.G. is the #1 new cable comedy. Home Box Office had another standout quarter and recently had the much-anticipated return of Westworld (produced by Warner Bros.), which saw viewership of the second season premiere episode increase 13% compared to the prior season’s average.”

Mr. Bewkes continued: “Warner Bros. remained a leader in television production with top comedies like The Big Bang Theory and Young Sheldon and top unscripted series, including The Voice, The Bachelor and Ellen’s Game of Games, airing across the broadcast networks. Theatrically, Warner Bros.’ latest sci-fi epic, Ready Player One, which opened at the end of March, is off to a strong start at the global box office and is the studio’s highest-grossing film ever in China. We look forward to the resolution of the legal challenge to our pending merger with AT&T and remain excited about the benefits of the merger, such as the potential to further strengthen our businesses by accelerating our innovation and increasing our ability to connect more directly with consumers.”

Company Results

Revenues increased 3% to $8.0 billion due to growth at Turner and Home Box Office, partially offset by a decline at Warner Bros. Operating Income decreased 13% to $1.8 billion and Adjusted Operating Income decreased 8% to $2.0 billion due to declines at all operating divisions, partially offset by positive intersegment eliminations.

The Company posted Diluted Net Income per Common Share (“EPS”) of $2.07, up 15% compared to $1.80 for the prior year quarter. Adjusted Diluted Net Income per Common Share (“Adjusted EPS”) was $2.28, up 37% compared to $1.66 for the prior year quarter. EPS and Adjusted EPS in the current year quarter included a net benefit of $0.49 related to the settlement of a U.S. federal tax audit and the retroactive extension of an expired tax law.


For the first three months of 2018, Cash Provided by Operations from Continuing Operations reached $1.3 billion and Free Cash Flow totaled $1.2 billion.

Presented below is a discussion of the performance of Time Warner’s segments for the first quarter of 2018. Unless otherwise noted, the dollar amounts in parentheses represent year-over-year changes.

TURNER

Revenues increased 8% ($256 million) to $3.3 billion, due to increases of 8% ($125 million) in Subscription revenues, 9% ($113 million) in Advertising revenues and 9% ($18 million) in Content and other revenues. Subscription revenues benefited from higher domestic rates and growth at Turner’s international networks, partially offset by lower domestic subscribers. The increase in Advertising revenues was mainly due to growth at Turner’s sports properties, primarily due to Turner’s networks airing the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament (“NCAA Tournament”) Final Four games, as well as growth at Turner’s news business. The airing of the NCAA Tournament Final Four games provided a benefit of approximately 5% to Advertising revenues.

Operating Income decreased 7% ($78 million) to $1.1 billion. The growth in revenues was more than offset by higher expenses, mainly increased programming and marketing costs. Programming expenses grew 21% primarily due to higher sports costs, including those associated with Turner’s networks airing the NCAA Tournament Final Four games, and higher original programming costs at Turner’s domestic entertainment networks.

Adjusted Operating Income decreased 5% ($59 million) to $1.1 billion.

In the first quarter of 2018, Turner had three of the top five ad-supported cable networks in primetime among adults 18-34 and adults 18-49 and CNN was the #1 news network among adults 18-34 and the leading digital news destination for multiplatform unique visitors and video starts for the ninth and twelfth consecutive quarter, respectively. Year-to-date, TNT’s The Alienist is the #1 new cable drama and TBS’ The Last O.G. is the #1 new cable comedy. Mobile viewership hours on March Madness Live, the NCAA Tournament’s streaming product managed by Turner, increased 10% compared to 2017. Viewership of NBA on TNT for the 2017-2018 regular season was up 13% compared to the prior season.

HOME BOX OFFICE

Revenues increased 3% ($51 million) to $1.6 billion, due to an increase of 10% ($127 million) in Subscription revenues, partially offset by a decrease of 29% ($76 million) in Content and other revenues. Subscription revenues grew primarily due to higher domestic subscribers and rates and international growth, partially offset by the negative effect of a change in accounting related to new revenue recognition guidance. Content and other revenues declined due to lower international licensing revenues.

Operating Income decreased 12% ($69 million) to $516 million. The growth in revenues was more than offset by increased expenses, including programming costs. Programming expenses increased 8% due to higher acquired and original programming costs.

Adjusted Operating Income decreased 10% ($62 million) to $535 million.

HBO recently renewed Silicon Valley and Barry for a sixth and second season, respectively. The initial telecast of the premiere episode of Westworld’s second season saw viewership increase 13% compared to the prior season’s initial telecast average. In March 2018, HBO launched an OTT service in Poland, marking the expansion of OTT services to all 17 countries served by HBO Europe.

WARNER BROS.

Revenues decreased 4% ($127 million) to $3.2 billion, primarily due to lower television and theatrical revenues, partially offset by higher games revenues and the favorable effect of foreign currency exchange rates. The decline in television revenues was primarily due to the comparison to the domestic licensing of certain library series in the prior year quarter. Theatrical revenues decreased due to the mix and timing of releases, as the prior year quarter included the releases of Kong: Skull Island and The LEGO Batman Movie compared to the late quarter release of

 

4


Ready Player One in the current year, partially offset by higher international licensing revenues. Games revenues increased primarily due to carryover revenue from Golf Clash, Injustice 2 and Middle-earth: Shadow of War.

Operating Income decreased 34% ($168 million) to $322 million primarily due to the decline in revenues.

Adjusted Operating Income decreased 25% ($129 million) to $383 million.

From its opening on March 29 through April 24, Ready Player One grossed over $525 million at the worldwide box office and is Warner Bros.’ highest-grossing film ever in China. For the 2017-2018 broadcast television season to date, among adults 18-49, Warner Bros. is producing half of the top ten comedies, including The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon and Mom, as well as four of the top five non-scripted series, including The Voice, The Bachelor and Ellen’s Game of Games. In addition, 13 Warner Bros. series have already been renewed for the 2018-2019 broadcast television season, including five DC Entertainment television series. In March, Warner Bros. received five Academy Awards, with Dunkirk and Blade Runner 2049 winning three and two awards, respectively.

CONSOLIDATED NET INCOME AND PER SHARE RESULTS

First-Quarter Results

For the three months ended March 31, 2018, the Company had Net Income attributable to Time Warner Inc. shareholders of $1.6 billion and EPS of $2.07. This compares to Net Income attributable to Time Warner Inc. shareholders for the first quarter of 2017 of $1.4 billion and EPS of $1.80. The increase in EPS primarily reflects a tax provision benefit related to the U.S. tax reform legislation enacted at the end of 2017 as well as benefits related to the settlement of a U.S. federal tax audit and the retroactive extension of an expired tax law.

Adjusted EPS was $2.28 for the three months ended March 31, 2018, compared to $1.66 for last year’s first quarter.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

The Company utilizes Adjusted Operating Income (Loss), Adjusted Operating Income margin and Adjusted EPS, among other measures, to evaluate the performance of its businesses. These measures are considered important indicators of the operational strength of the Company’s businesses. Some limitations of Adjusted Operating Income (Loss), Adjusted Operating Income margin 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.

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 (other than deferred gains on sale-leasebacks); costs related to the AT&T merger (including retention and incentive, restructuring and severance costs associated with the transaction); external costs related to mergers, acquisitions or dispositions (including restructuring and severance costs associated with 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 EPS is Diluted Net Income per Common Share attributable to Time Warner Inc. common shareholders with the following items excluded from Net Income attributable to Time Warner Inc. common shareholders: noncash impairments of goodwill, intangible and fixed assets and investments; gains and losses on operating assets (other than deferred gains on sale-leasebacks), liabilities (including extinguishments of debt) and investments, in each case including associated costs of the transaction;

 

5


gains and losses recognized in connection with pension and other postretirement benefit plan curtailments or settlements; costs related to the AT&T merger (including retention and incentive, restructuring and severance costs associated with the transaction); external costs related to mergers, acquisitions, investments or dispositions (including restructuring and severance costs associated with 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 and the Company’s share of the above items with respect to equity method investments.

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 (including restructuring and severance costs associated with dispositions), to the extent such costs are expensed, and contingent consideration payments made in connection with acquisitions, less capital expenditures, principal payments on capital leases and partnership distributions, if any. The Company uses Free Cash Flow to evaluate the performance and liquidity of its businesses and considers Free Cash Flow when making decisions regarding strategic investments, dividends and share repurchases. The Company believes Free Cash Flow provides useful information to investors because it is 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 EPS and Free Cash Flow should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, the Company’s Operating Income (Loss), 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.

TIME WARNER INC.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Note 1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

Time Warner Inc. (“Time Warner” or the “Company”) is a leading media and entertainment company, whose businesses include television networks, and film and TV entertainment. Time Warner classifies its operations into three reportable segments: Turner: consisting principally of cable networks and digital media properties; Home Box Office: consisting principally of premium pay television services and a service that delivers video content to consumers over the internet (“OTT service”) domestically and premium pay, basic tier television and OTT services internationally; and Warner Bros.: consisting principally of television, feature film, home video and game production and distribution.

On October 22, 2016, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with AT&T Inc. (“AT&T”), West Merger Sub, Inc., and West Merger Sub II, LLC, pursuant to which the Company will be acquired by AT&T for a combination of $53.75 and shares of AT&T stock. At the time of entry into the Merger Agreement, the value of the merger consideration was $107.50 per share of Time Warner common stock and the value will vary, subject to a collar, prior to the closing of the transaction. Time Warner shareholders adopted the Merger Agreement at a special meeting of shareholders held on February 15, 2017.

The merger is conditioned on the receipt of certain antitrust and other required regulatory consents. On November 20, 2017, the United States Department of Justice filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia (the “Court”) under a federal antitrust statute to enjoin the merger. The trial began the week of March 19, 2018 and the parties’ presentation of their cases is expected to conclude in early May 2018. Time Warner and AT&T have agreed to extend the termination date of the Merger Agreement to April 22, 2018, and each has agreed to waive, until June 21, 2018, its right to terminate the Merger Agreement based on the merger not being completed by April 22, 2018.

merger-related employee retention and incentive programs (as discussed below). For the three months ended March 31, 2018 and 2017, approximately $145 million and $80 million, respectively, of these costs are included in Selling, general and administrative expenses and the remainder in Costs of revenues in the accompanying Consolidated Statement of Operations.

In connection with entering into the Merger Agreement, the Company has granted 5.7 million special retention restricted stock units (“Special Retention RSUs”) as of March 31, 2018 to certain employees of Time Warner and its divisions, including all executive officers of Time Warner. Half of the Special Retention RSUs will vest 25% per year on each of the first four anniversaries of February 15, 2017, and the remaining half will vest 25% per year on each of the first four anniversaries of February 15, 2018. Pursuant to the Special Retention RSU agreements, vesting as a result of retirement is not permitted unless the employee retires after the merger has closed. In addition, the awards do not accelerate automatically following the closing of the merger. Instead, the employee must remain employed following the closing, and the awards will vest only on the scheduled vesting date or upon termination of employment under certain circumstances, such as termination without cause, for good reason or due to retirement.

In addition, the Company has implemented merger-related cash-based incentive plans, including a retention plan for certain employees of Time Warner and its divisions, including executive officers of Time Warner other than the Chairman and CEO, and a retention and incentive plan focused on the operating divisions’ 2018 performance in which the executive officers of Time Warner do not participate.
