Fox Entertainment Group, Inc. Key Developments

Filmed Entertainment Reports Earnings Results Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended March 31, 2014

Fox Entertainment Group, Inc. reported earnings results third quarter and nine months ended March 31, 2014. The company reported quarterly segment OIBDA of $354 million, a 6% increase over the $334 million reported in the same period a year ago. This result reflects higher contributions from the television production businesses, led by higher SVOD revenues driven by the sale of series to Amazon, which included 24 and The Americans, and the syndication of Modern Family. This growth was partially offset by the timing of theatrical launch costs incurred in the quarter in advance of the successful worldwide theatrical release of Rio 2 in April, which has grossed nearly $400 million in worldwide box office to date. For the quarter, the company reported revenues of $2,279 million against $2,346 million a year ago. For the nine months, the company reported revenues of $6,876 million against $6,607 million a year ago. OIBDA was $1,019 million against $1,191 million a year ago.

New York Federal Court Rules Against Fox Searchlight Pictures Inc. and Fox Entertainment Group for Unpaid Interns

A New York federal court ruled Fox Searchlight Pictures Inc. and Fox Entertainment Group, Inc. are liable for failing to pay interns in violation of federal and state labor laws. In the first ruling of its kind, U.S. District Court Judge William H. Pauley III, of the Southern District of New York, ruled that named plaintiffs Eric Glatt and Alexander Footman were employees of defendant Fox Searchlight Pictures and protected by the federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) and state wage and hour law. Judge Pauley also held that plaintiff Eden Antalik may prosecute her claims as a class action against the defendants on behalf of interns employed by certain FEG subsidiaries. The interns worked as production assistants, bookkeepers, secretaries and janitors on films produced and co-produced by Fox Searchlight Pictures. Mr. Glatt and Mr. Footman were unpaid interns who worked on production of the film Black Swan in New York. After production ended, Mr. Glatt took a second unpaid internship relating to Black Swan's post-production. Ms. Antalik was an unpaid intern at Searchlight's corporate offices in New York.
