lifornia consists primarily of Universal Studios Hollywood. In addition, the company licenses the right to use the Universal Studios brand name and other intellectual property, and also provides other services, to third parties that own and operate the Universal Studios Japan theme park in Osaka, Japan and the Universal Studios Singapore theme park on Sentosa Island, Singapore. The company also owns a water park, Wet ‘n Wild, in Orlando, Florida. The Theme Parks segment licenses the right to use a substantial amount of intellectual property from third parties for its themed elements in rides, attractions, retail outlets and merchandising. Trademarks The company’s registered trademarks include Comcast, NBCUniversal and the Comcast and NBCUniversal logos. Seasonality In the Cable Communications segment, the company’s results are impacted by the seasonal nature of customers receiving cable services in college and vacation markets. This results in a reduction in net customer additions in the second quarter and an increase in net customer additions in the third and fourth quarters of each year. Revenue in the Cable Communications, Cable Networks and Broadcast Television segments is subject to cyclical advertising patterns and changes in viewership levels. The company’s U.S. advertising revenue is higher in the second and fourth quarters of each year, due in part to increases in consumer advertising in the spring and in the period leading up to and including the holiday season. Revenue in the company’s Cable Networks and Broadcast Television segments fluctuates depending on the timing of when its programming is aired on television, which results in higher advertising revenue in the second and fourth quarters of each year. Revenue in the Filmed Entertainment segment fluctuates due to the timing of the release of the company’s films in movie theaters, on DVD and electronically through digital distributors. As a result, revenue tends to be seasonal, with increases experienced each year during the summer months and around the holidays. The company’s theme parks experience peak attendance during the summer months when schools are closed and during early winter and spring holiday periods. Competition Phone Companies: The company competes with AT&T.
