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.

First quarter adjusted net income attributable to DIRECTV declined to $730 million and adjusted diluted earnings per share fell to $1.44 in the quarter mainly due to the lower adjusted operating profit, as well as a $31 million pre-tax non-cash loss associated with the revaluation of U.S. dollar denominated net liabilities in Brazil compared to a $6 million gain in the prior year period. These declines were partially offset by the impact of lower tax expense primarily due to the lower adjusted pre-tax income.
