EchoStar Corp. Announces Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months June 30, 2015; Provides Capital Expenditure Guidance for the Year 2015

EchoStar Corp. announced earnings results for the second quarter and six months June 30, 2015.

The company's capital expenditures for the quarter were $179 million compared to $156 million last year. This spending increase was primarily related to the ramp up in satellite construction. EBITDA was $212 million in the quarter compared to $233 million in the second quarter of 2014, once again primarily due to the decline in DISH sale and some onetime expenses, partially offset by growth in its consumer broadband business.
