Home Box Office, Inc. Key Developments

Federal Jury Dismisses Defamation Suit against HBO

HBO won the dismissal of a defamation lawsuit filed by Mitre Sports International in 2008. The company applauded the verdict by a federal jury and said the case lacked merit. Mitre Sports International had reportedly claimed that a 2008 segment of "Real Sports With Bryant Gumbel" allegedly misled viewers by running a report that showed "low-paid, underage" children in India sewing soccer balls for Mitre Sports.

HBO, Showtime, AT&T Inc., Comcast Corp. and DIRECTV Face Suits over Mayweather/Pacquiao Fight

The parties involved in the May 2, 2015, boxing match between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr. are facing as many as five lawsuits. One such lawsuit was filed against the boxers, their promoters, HBO, Showtime, AT&T Inc., Comcast Corp. and DIRECTV. The suit, which seeks class action status, was filed following Pacquiao's recent disclosure about a shoulder injury he suffered while preparing for the fight. The plaintiffs reportedly claimed that the parties involved in the boxing event would not have earned as much pay-per-view revenues as they got had they disclosed information about the injury before the match.

Home Box Office Announces Unaudited Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2015

Home Box Office announced unaudited earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2015. For the quarter, the company’s revenues grew 4% ($59 million) to $1.4 billion, reflecting increases of 4% ($49 million) in Subscription revenues and 5% ($10 million) in Content and other revenues. Subscription revenues increased primarily due to higher domestic rates, partially offset by the transfer to Turner of the operation of HBO's basic cable network in India. The increase in Content and other revenues reflected higher home entertainment revenues and higher international licensing revenues. Adjusted Operating Income declined 1% ($6 million) to $458 million, as higher revenues were more than offset by higher programming, distribution and marketing costs. Operating Income decreased 1% ($6 million) to $458 million.
