Income before income taxes was $1,171 million compared to $1,065 million a year ago.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $1,636 million compared to $1,590 million a year ago. Cash paid for property and equipment was $613 million compared to $650 million a year ago. Subtotal - free cash flow was $927 million compared to $886 million a year ago. Adjusted operating profit was $1,387 million compared to $1,508 million a year ago. Adjusted net income attributable the company was $730 million compared to $842 million a year ago. Adjusted diluted earnings per common share were $1.44 compared to $1.63 a year ago. First quarter adjusted net income attributable to DIRECTV declined to $730 million and adjusted diluted earnings per share fell to $1.44 in the quarter mainly due to the lower adjusted operating profit, as well as a $31 million pre-tax non-cash loss associated with the revaluation of U.S. dollar denominated net liabilities in Brazil compared to a $6 million gain in the prior year period. These declines were partially offset by the impact of lower tax expense primarily due to the lower adjusted pre-tax income.

The Supreme Court to Hear DirecTV Appeal over Termination Fees

The Supreme Court will consider whether satellite provider DirecTV can cut off a class action lawsuit and force customers suing over early termination fees into private arbitration hearings instead. The justices agreed on March 23, 2015 to hear an appeal from DirecTV, which says its customer agreements do not allow customers to band together to sue the company. The company argues that customers must use arbitration to resolve their claims one by one. A California state appeals court ruled against the DirecTV last year, saying that state law forbids agreements that waive customer's rights to bring a class action. The state Supreme Court affirmed. DirecTV argues that California law is pre-empted by the Federal Arbitration Act, which favors such agreements. Justices will hear arguments this fall in the case, DirecTV v. Imbruglia, 14-462.
