Warner Bros. Announces Unaudited Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015
Apr 29 15
Warner Bros. announced unaudited earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company’s revenues increased 4% ($133 million) to $3.2 billion, reflecting higher television licensing revenues primarily due to the subscription video-on-demand sale of Friends and higher revenues from videogames. Revenues also benefited from growth in theatrical revenues led by the strong performance of American Sniper. The increase was partially offset by the effect of foreign currency exchange rates. Adjusted operating income declined 13% ($50 million) to $330 million, as higher revenues were more than offset by higher film and advertising costs due to the mix of theatrical releases and videogame product. Operating Income decreased 12% ($45 million) to $324 million.
