Viacom, Inc. Announces Consolidated Unaudited Earnings Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended March 31, 2013; Provides Tax Rate Guidance for the Year 2013

Viacom, Inc. announced consolidated unaudited earnings results for the second quarter and six months ended March 31, 2013. For the quarter, the company reported revenues of $3,135 million against $3,331 million a year ago. Operating income was $847 million against $932 million a year ago. Earnings from continuing operations before provision for income taxes were $747 million against $812 million a year ago. Net earnings from continuing operations were $489 million against $599 million a year ago. Net earnings were $486 million against $596 million a year ago. Net earnings attributable to company were $478 million against $585 million a year ago. Diluted earnings per share attributable to Viacom were $0.96 against $1.07 a year ago. Basic earnings per share continuing operations were $0.98 against $1.09 a year ago. Net earnings from continuing operations attributable to company were $481 million against $588 million a year ago. Adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $0.96 against $0.98 a year ago. Revenues decreased primarily due to lower Filmed Entertainment revenues and partially offset by an increase in Media Networks revenues as advertising revenue increased over the prior year. Operating income declined reflecting lower Filmed Entertainment results and an increase in Media Networks programming investment expense, partially offset by the increase in advertising and affiliate revenues. Adjusted net earnings from continuing operations attributable to Viacom were $481 million, and adjusted diluted earnings per share from continuing operations were $0.96 per diluted share. The company generated $700 million in operating free cash flow compared to $869 million last year. The company continued to maximize the free cash flow efficiency, converting over 80% of operating income into cash flow in the quarter. The decline in operating free cash flow in the quarter was principally due to an unfavorable working capital variance and lower operating income, partially offset by lower cash taxes.

Net earnings from continuing operations attributable to company were $954 million against $1,179 million a year ago.
