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.
