(NYSE:TWX) today reported financial results for its fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2013.  Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jeff Bewkes said: “We had another very successful year in 2013, with Turner, Home Box Office and Warner Bros. all posting record profits while also investing for future growth. We grew Adjusted Operating Income by 8% and Adjusted EPS by 16% — our fifth consecutive year of double-digit Adjusted EPS growth. Among Turner’s highlights, TBS ranked as ad-supported cable’s #1 network in primetime among adults 18-49 and TNT was the #2 network in total day among adults 25-54. Adult Swim had the most-watched year in its history and ranked #1 on ad-supported cable among adults 18-34 in total day for the ninth year in a row. HBO remains in a league of its own, once again receiving the most Primetime Emmy Awards of any network, while tying for the most Golden Globe Awards and recording its biggest gain in domestic subscribers in 17 years. Warner Bros. delivered its best year on record by any measure. Theatrically, it led both the domestic and international box office, and its films received an industry-leading 21 Academy Award nominations — including Best Picture nominations for Gravity and Her.  In television, Warner Bros. has over 60 programs airing on broadcast and cable during the 2013-2014 television season, including, among adults 18-49, the #1 comedy in The Big Bang Theory, the #1 unscripted show in The Voice and the #3 drama in The Following.”  Mr. Bewkes continued: “We also remain on track for the separation of Time Inc. into an independent publicly-traded company during the second quarter of 2014. And our plans to consolidate our New York City area operations into a single new location reflect our unrelenting focus on increased efficiency and collaboration. Demonstrating our commitment to stockholder returns, in 2013, we returned nearly $5 billion to our stockholders in the form of share buybacks and dividends. Furthering this commitment, our Board of Directors has authorized a new $5 billion share repurchase program and a double-digit increase in our dividend for the fifth consecutive year.”  Full-Year Company Results  Full-year revenues increased 4% from 2012 to $29.8 billion and Adjusted Operating Income rose 8% from 2012 to $6.6 billion as growth at Turner, Home Box Office and Warner Bros. and a decrease in intercompany eliminations more than offset a decline at Time Inc. Operating Income increased 12% from 2012 to $6.6 billion. Adjusted Operating Income and Operating Income margins were 22% in 2013 compared to 21% in 2012.  The Company posted 2013 Adjusted Diluted Income per Common Share from Continuing Operations (“Adjusted EPS”) of $3.77, up 16% from $3.24^2 in the prior year. Diluted Income per Common Share from Continuing Operations was $3.77 compared to $3.00^2 in 2012.  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 Time Inc. from Time Warner. In 2013, excluding Time Inc., Revenues increased 4%, Adjusted Operating Income grew 9% and Operating Income rose 14%.  In 2013, Cash Provided by Operations from Continuing Operations reached $3.7 billion and Free Cash Flow totaled $3.5 billion. As of December 31, 2013, Net Debt was $18.3 billion, 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.  Fourth-Quarter Company Results  Revenues increased 5% to $8.6 billion in the fourth quarter of 2013 due to growth at Warner Bros., Turner and Home Box Office. Adjusted Operating Income decreased 2% to $1.9 billion due to declines at Turner, Time Inc. and Home Box Office, partially offset by an increase at Warner Bros. Operating Income decreased 9% to $1.8 billion. Adjusted Operating Income and Operating Income margins were 23% and 22% in the fourth quarter of 2013, respectively, compared to 24% and 25% in the prior year quarter, respectively.  The Company posted Adjusted EPS of $1.17, up 1% from $1.16^2 for the year-ago quarter. Diluted Income per Common Share from Continuing Operations was $1.06 compared to $1.15^2 in the prior year quarter.  In the fourth quarter of 2013, excluding Time Inc., Revenues increased 6%, Adjusted Operating Income fell 1% and Operating Income decreased 5%.

Stock Repurchase Program Update  From January 1, 2013 through January 31, 2014, the Company repurchased approximately 64 million shares of common stock for approximately $3.9 billion. These amounts reflect the purchase of approximately  14 million shares of common stock for approximately $927 million since the amounts reported in the Company’s third quarter earnings release issued on November 6, 2013.  In January 2014, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized a total of $5 billion in share repurchases beginning January 1, 2014, which replaced the amount remaining under the prior authorization.  Regular Quarterly Dividend  On February 4, 2014, the Company’s Board of Directors increased the Company’s regular quarterly dividend by 10% to $0.3175 per share.

Unless otherwise noted, the dollar amounts in parentheses represent year-over-year changes.  TURNER  Full-Year Results  Revenues rose 5% ($456 million) to $10.0 billion, benefiting from growth of 5% ($236 million) in Subscription revenues and 5% ($219 million) in Advertising revenues, partially offset by a decline of 2% ($6 million) in Content revenues. The increase in Subscription revenues was primarily due to higher domestic rates and international growth, partially offset by the negative effect of foreign currency exchange rates. Advertising revenues primarily benefited from growth at Turner’s domestic entertainment networks, principally due to higher pricing, as well as increased demand for Turner’s sports programming. The growth in Advertising revenues was partially offset by declines at Turner’s news networks mainly due to the comparison to the 2012 U.S. presidential election. The decline in Content revenues was primarily due to the shutdown of TNT television operations in Turkey in the second quarter of 2012.  Adjusted Operating Income increased 6% ($202 million) to $3.5 billion, reflecting higher revenues, partly offset by higher programming costs and increased restructuring and severance expenses. Programming costs grew 6%, primarily reflecting an increase in original programming, including at Turner’s domestic news networks, and higher programming impairments.  Operating Income increased 10% ($314 million) to $3.5 billion. The prior year included $192 million in charges related to the shutdown of Turner’s general entertainment network, Imagine, in India and its TNT television operations in Turkey as well as a $34 million gain related to the 2007 sale of the Atlanta Braves baseball franchise (the “Braves”).  TNT claimed four of the top fifteen ad-supported cable original series of 2013, more than any other network. In 2013, TBS ranked as ad-supported cable’s #1 primetime network among adults 18-34 and adults 18-49. 2013 was Adult Swim’s most-watched year in its history for adults 18-34 and adults 18-49 in total day, and it ranked #1 in total day on ad-supported cable among adults 18-34 for the ninth year in a row. CNN once again reached more viewers than any other cable news network in 2013 and reclaimed the #2 ranking in total day for cable news networks among total viewers.  Fourth-Quarter Results  Revenues increased 3% ($73 million) to $2.5 billion, due to increases of 6% ($69 million) in Subscription revenues and 1% ($6 million) in Advertising revenues. Similar to the full year results, the increase in Subscription revenues mainly resulted from higher domestic rates and international growth, partially offset by the negative effect of foreign currency exchange rates. Advertising revenues benefited from growth at Turner’s domestic entertainment networks, mainly due to increased pricing and demand. That growth was partially offset by declines at the domestic news networks, primarily due to the comparison to the 2012 U.S. presidential election in the prior year quarter.  Adjusted Operating Income fell 3% ($27 million) to $879 million, due to increased expenses, including higher programming costs and marketing expenses. Programming costs grew 12% in the quarter primarily due to higher programming impairments and increased investments in original programming, including at Turner’s domestic news networks.  Operating Income decreased 10% ($95 million) to $853 million. The fourth quarter of 2013 included an $18 million impairment related to a building in South America. The prior year quarter included a $34 million gain related to the 2007 sale of the Braves.  HOME BOX OFFICE  Full-Year Results  Revenues rose 4% ($204 million) to $4.9 billion, as Subscription revenue growth of 6% ($221 million) was partially offset by a decline of 3% ($18 million) in Content revenues. The increase in Subscription revenues resulted mainly from higher domestic rates and the consolidation of HBO Asia and HBO South Asia (collectively, “HBO Asia”) and HBO Nordic. Content revenues declined due to lower home video revenues, primarily due to lower library sales.  Adjusted Operating Income increased 8% ($131 million) to $1.7 billion, reflecting higher revenues, partly offset by increased expenses, including higher marketing and restructuring and severance expenses. Programming costs grew 1% due to the consolidation of HBO Asia and HBO Nordic and higher original programming expenses, partly offset by lower programming impairments and lower expenses for acquired theatrical product due to lower volume of titles.  Operating Income increased 16% ($244 million) to $1.8 billion and included $113 million in gains related to HBO’s acquisitions of its partners’ interests in HBO Asia and HBO Nordic.  In 2013, HBO received the most Primetime Emmy Awards of any network for the twelfth consecutive year. At the 71^st Annual Golden Globe Awards, HBO won two awards, including Best TV Movie or Mini-Series for Behind the Candelabra.  Fourth-Quarter Results  Revenues increased 6% ($69 million) to $1.3 billion, due to Subscription revenue growth of 8% ($84 million), which was partially offset by a decrease of 9% ($16 million) in Content revenues. The increase in Subscription revenues resulted mainly from higher domestic rates and the consolidation of HBO Asia and HBO Nordic. Content revenues decreased largely due to lower home video revenues, partly offset by higher international licensing revenues.  Adjusted Operating Income decreased 4% ($16 million) to $414 million, due to higher expenses, including a 12% increase in programming costs. Programming costs grew due to higher original programming expenses and the consolidation of HBO Asia and HBO Nordic, partly offset by lower expenses for acquired theatrical product.  Operating Income decreased 4% ($17 million) to $413 million.  WARNER BROS.  Full-Year Results  Revenues increased 2% ($294 million) to $12.3 billion, mainly due to stronger theatrical and videogames slates, as well as growth in electronic sell-through. The increase was partially offset by declines in television licensing revenues due to fewer theatrical availabilities and the comparison to last year’s initial off-network availability of The Mentalist, as well as lower physical home video revenues.  Adjusted Operating Income rose 7% ($90 million) to $1.3 billion, mainly due to higher revenues, partially offset by higher print and advertising expenses due to an increased number of theatrical releases, as well as increased restructuring and severance expenses.  Operating Income increased 8% ($96 million) to $1.3 billion.  In 2013, Warner Bros. ranked #1 at the domestic and international box offices, with its films grossing over $5 billion globally for the first time ever, led by The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, Gravity and Man of Steel. It was also the 5^th straight year that Warner Bros.’ films grossed over $4 billion at the worldwide box office, setting an industry record. In 2013, Warner Bros. remained #1 domestically in overall home entertainment. Warner Bros. has over 60 series airing on television for the 2013-2014 television season, including 32 series on broadcast networks, the most of any studio. At the 71^st Annual Golden Globe Awards, Warner Bros. won awards for Best Director – Motion Picture for Gravity and Best Screenplay – Motion Picture for Her. For the 86^th Academy Awards, Warner Bros. received an industry-leading 21 nominations, including Best Picture nominations for Gravity and Her.  Fourth-Quarter Results  Revenues increased 7% ($273 million) to $4.0 billion, mainly due to stronger theatrical and videogames slates. The fourth quarter of 2013 included the theatrical releases of Gravity and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and the videogame release of Batman: Arkham Origins. The growth was partially offset by a decline in home video revenues and lower television licensing revenues from theatrical product.  Adjusted Operating Income increased 4% ($21 million) to $576 million mainly due to the increase in revenues and lower theatrical valuation adjustments, partially offset by increased television costs due to product mix.  Operating Income increased 4% ($21 million) to $573 million.  TIME INC.  Full-Year Results  Revenues declined 2% ($82 million) to $3.4 billion, reflecting decreases of 7% ($81 million) in Subscription revenues and 1% ($12 million) in Advertising revenues, partially offset by an increase of 5% ($16 million) in Other revenues. Subscription revenues declined due to lower worldwide newsstand revenues and lower domestic subscription revenues, partially offset by the acquisition of American Express Publishing Corporation (“AEP”) in October 2013. Advertising revenues decreased primarily due to declines in worldwide magazine advertising, partially offset by the inclusion of AEP’s revenues.  Adjusted Operating Income decreased 13% ($59 million) to $404 million due to the decline in revenues and increased restructuring and severance expenses.  Operating Income decreased 20% ($83 million) to $337 million. The current year included $79 million of impairments primarily related to certain tradenames. The prior year included a pre-tax loss of $36 million related to the sale of Time Inc.’s school fundraising business, QSP.  In 2013, Time Inc. maintained its leading share of overall domestic magazine advertising with 23.7%, up from 21.5% in 2012 (Publishers Information Bureau data). The 2013 share reflects the inclusion of AEP and a title managed on behalf of American Express Company for the full year.  Fourth-Quarter Results  Revenues were essentially flat at $966 million due to a decrease of 6% ($19 million) in Subscription revenues offset by increases of 2% ($13 million) in Advertising revenues and 6% ($5 million) in Other revenues. Similar to the full year results, Subscription revenues declined due to lower worldwide newsstand revenues and lower domestic subscription revenues, partially offset by the inclusion of AEP. Advertising revenues increased due to the acquisition of AEP, partially offset by the impact of certain weekly titles having one fewer issue in the fourth quarter of 2013. Excluding the impact of acquiring AEP, Subscription, Advertising and Other revenues would have decreased 10%, 7% and 4%, respectively, and Total revenues would have declined 8%.  Adjusted Operating Income decreased 14% ($28 million) to $173 million, primarily due to revenue declines at certain non-AEP titles.  Operating Income decreased 47% ($93 million) to $107 million and included $79 million of impairments primarily related to certain tradenames.  CONSOLIDATED NET INCOME AND PER SHARE RESULTS  Full-Year Results  For the year ended December 31, 2013, Adjusted EPS was $3.77 compared to $3.24^2 in 2012. The increase in Adjusted EPS primarily reflects higher Adjusted Operating Income and fewer shares outstanding.  The Company reported Income from Continuing Operations attributable to Time Warner common shareholders of $3.6  billion, or $3.77  per diluted common share. This compares to Income from Continuing Operations attributable to Time Warner common shareholders in 2012 of  $2.9  billion^2, or $3.00^2  per diluted common share.  For the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, the Company reported Net Income of $3.7 billion and $2.9 billion^2, respectively.  Fourth-Quarter Results  Adjusted EPS was $1.17  for the three months ended December 31, 2013, compared to $1.16^2 in last year’s fourth quarter. The increase in Adjusted EPS primarily reflects fewer shares outstanding.  For the three months ended December 31, 2013, the Company reported Income from Continuing Operations attributable to Time Warner common shareholders of $1.0  billion, or $1.06  per diluted common share. This compares to Income from Continuing Operations attributable to Time Warner common shareholders in the fourth quarter of 2012 of  $1.1 billion^2, or $1.15^2  per diluted common share.  For the fourth quarter of 2013 and 2012, the Company reported Net Income of  $1.0  billion and  $1.1 billion^2, respectively.  ______________________________ ^1 In the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company separated its former Networks reportable segment into two reportable segments: Turner and Home Box Office. In addition, during the fourth quarter of 2013, the Company changed the names of its Film and TV Entertainment reportable segment to Warner Bros. and its Publishing reportable segment to Time Inc. The new presentation had no impact on the historical consolidated financial information previously reported by the Company.  ^2 The Company has recast its historical financial results to reflect the presentation of its investment in Central European Media Enterprises Ltd. (“CME”) under the equity method of accounting for all prior periods from the date of the Company’s initial investment in CME in May 2009.  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 Time Inc. from Time Warner, the Company also uses Adjusted Operating Income (Loss) excluding Time Inc. 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 (other than deferred gains on sale-leasebacks); gains and losses recognized in connection with pension and other postretirement benefit plan curtailments or settlements; 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 Income from Continuing Operations attributable to Time Warner Inc. common shareholders is Income from Continuing Operations attributable to Time Warner Inc. common shareholders excluding noncash impairments of goodwill, intangible and fixed assets and investments; gains and losses on operating assets (other than deferred gains on sale-leasebacks), liabilities and investments; gains and losses recognized in connection with pension and other postretirement benefit plan curtailments or settlements; 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 Income per Common Share from Continuing Operations attributable to Time Warner Inc. common shareholders excluding the above items.  Adjusted Income from Continuing Operations 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) excluding Time Inc., Adjusted Operating Income margin, Adjusted Income from Continuing Operations 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 Time Inc., Adjusted Income from Continuing Operations 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), Income from Continuing Operations attributable to Time Warner Inc. common shareholders, Diluted Income per Common Share from Continuing Operations 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.
