Total revenue for the first quarter of 2011 was $9.08 billion, up 6% year-over-year compared to the previous year. Diluted EPS rose 2% during the same period. Overall, the company's media networks segment performed exceptionally well, registering 12% and 17% growth in revenue and operational income, respectively.

The company's operating cash flows for the first six months increased 23% to $3.1 billion over the same period prior year due to higher operating cash receipts from segments such as media networks, resorts and consumer products.
