Fiscal 2012 fourth quarter AOCF of $77.8 million increased 90%, as compared to the prior year period, primarily driven by an AOCF increase in the MSG Sports segment and, to a lesser extent, by an AOCF increase in the MSG Media segment and improved AOCF results in the MSG Entertainment segment. Operating income of $49.9 million grew 245% and net income of $28.6 million ($0.37 per diluted share) grew 235%, both as compared to the prior year quarter. President and CEO Hank Ratner said: "Our Company had an impressive year as the ongoing strength of our fully integrated media, entertainment and sports business drove record AOCF for fiscal 2012.
