Stocks in this article: TWX

Full-Year Company Results

Full-year Revenues decreased 1% from 2011 to $28.7 billion, as growth at the Networks segment was more than offset by declines at the Film and TV Entertainment and Publishing segments. Adjusted Operating Income rose 4% from 2011, to $6.1 billion, due to growth at the Networks segment, partially offset by declines at the Publishing and Film and TV Entertainment segments. Operating Income increased 2% from 2011 to $5.9 billion. Adjusted Operating Income and Operating Income margins were 21% in 2012, up from 20% in 2011.

In 2012, Cash Provided by Operations from Continuing Operations reached $3.5 billion, and Free Cash Flow totaled $2.9 billion. As of December 31, 2012, Net Debt was $17.0 billion, up from $16.0 billion at the end of 2011, due to the funding of share repurchases and dividends, partially offset by the generation of Free Cash Flow and proceeds from the exercise of stock options.
