News Corporation Reports Second Quarter Results For Fiscal 2014


The Company previously filed refund claims for certain losses, pertaining to periods prior to the separation, in a foreign jurisdiction that had been subject to litigation. In the first quarter of fiscal 2014, the foreign tax authority determined that it would not appeal a favorable court ruling received by the Company in July 2013 and therefore, a portion of the uncertain matter was resolved during the three months ended September 30, 2013. In the second quarter of fiscal 2014, the foreign tax authority completed its review and the remainder of the uncertain matter was resolved during the three months ended December 31, 2013.

Pursuant to the Tax Sharing and Indemnification Agreement with 21st Century Fox, refunds received related to these matters, net of applicable taxes to be paid by the Company, are to be remitted to 21st Century Fox. Accordingly, the Company recorded an income tax benefit and a corresponding expense, net of applicable taxes, to Other, net of $238 million for the payable to 21st Century Fox in the Statements of Operations for the three months ended December 31, 2013.
