NBCUniversal Reports Earnings Results for the Third Quarter of 2016; Provides Capex Guidance for the Year 2016

NBCUniversal reported earnings results for the third quarter of 2016. For the quarter, the company reported revenues increased 28.3% and operating cash flow increased 31.5%. Adjusting to include the acquisition of Universal Studios Japan in last year's results, pro forma revenue increased 22.5%, and operating cash flow increased 19.2%. These exceptional results were driven in part by the success of the Rio Olympics, which added $1.6 billion in revenue, of which $1.2 billion is related to advertising revenue and is included in the Cable Networks and Broadcast segments. In addition to the Olympics, NBCUniversal results reflect strong performance at parks and broadcast as well as the theatrical success of the Secret Life of Pets. At NBCUniversal, capital expenditures increased 16.3% to $336 million in the third quarter and increased 19.5% to $991 million on a year-to-date basis, driven by the inclusion of Universal Studios Japan. The company continues to expect NBCUniversal's CapEx to increase approximately 10% this year.
