Apr 30 15
Starz announced consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the first quarter, Starz consolidated revenue was $450.7 million, adjusted OIBDA was $155.5 million and operating income was $142.5 million. Adjusted OIBDA increased 14% to $129.7 million, primarily as a result of the increase in revenue and lower programming costs, which were partially offset by increased cooperative marketing efforts with the company's distributors. The company reported first-quarter earnings of $84.6 million and net income of 79 cents. Cash used in operations was $5.8 million as compared to $41.3 million of cash provided by operations during first quarter of 2014. The use of cash in first quarter 2015 was due to increased cash spending related to the ramp-up in original programming lineup and timing of payments under agreements with Disney and The Weinstein Company.
