Comcast Reports 2nd Quarter 2021 Results

7:00 am ET July 29, 2021 (BusinessWire) Print

Comcast Corporation (NASDAQ: CMCSA) today reported results for the quarter ended June 30, 2021.

"We delivered excellent results in the quarter, continuing our great start to the year. At Cable, our performance was exceptional, highlighted by 11% revenue and 15% Adjusted EBITDA growth, the best broadband and total customer relationship net additions on record for a second quarter, and the most wireless net additions since the launch of Xfinity Mobile in 2017. At NBCUniversal, Adjusted EBITDA increased an impressive 13%, fueled by the recovery at Theme Parks, particularly at Universal Orlando. And I am pleased with and encouraged by our customer and financial metrics in the U.K., which drove Sky's double-digit total revenue growth in the quarter. We remain committed to innovating for our customers and investing for a strong future. I have great confidence in our strategy and our ability to execute, which is reflected in our decision to restart our share repurchase program during the quarter, earlier than previously planned," commented Brian L. Roberts, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Comcast Corporation.

                       Percent of Cable Communications Revenue

Revenue for Cable Communications increased 10.9% to $16.0 billion in the second quarter of 2021, driven by increases in broadband, advertising, wireless, business services, video and other revenue, partially offset by a decrease in voice revenue. In the prior year period, results were negatively impacted by COVID-19, including accrued customer regional sports network (RSN) fee adjustments, reduced advertising revenue and lower revenue due to Xfinity's commitment to the FCC's Keep Americans Connected Pledge and our efforts to assist customers during the COVID-19 public health crisis. Excluding the impact of accrued customer RSN fee adjustments in the prior year period(5), Cable Communications revenue increased 9.3%. Broadband revenue increased 14.3% due to an increase in the number of residential broadband customers and an increase in average rates. Excluding the impact of accrued RSN fee adjustments in the prior year period for customers taking bundled services(5), broadband revenue increased 12.6%. Advertising revenue increased 58.6%, primarily reflecting an overall market recovery in the current period and reduced spending from advertisers in the prior year period as a result of COVID-19. Excluding political advertising revenue, advertising revenue increased 60.4%. Wireless revenue increased 70.4% due to an increase in the number of customer lines and an increase in device sales. Business services revenue increased 9.9%, primarily due to an increase in average rates compared to the prior year period which was negatively impacted by COVID-19. Video revenue increased 2.6%, reflecting an increase in average rates, partially offset by a decrease in the number of residential video customers. Excluding the impact of accrued customer RSN fee adjustments in the prior year period(5), video revenue increased 0.5%. Other revenue increased 12.4%, primarily reflecting increases in revenue from our security and automation services and from licensing of our technology platforms. Voice revenue decreased 0.8%, primarily reflecting a decrease in the number of residential voice customers, partially offset by an increase in average rates.

For the six months ended June 30, 2021, Cable revenue increased 8.4% to $31.8 billion compared to 2020, driven by growth in broadband, wireless, business services, advertising, video and other revenue, partially offset by a decrease in voice revenue.

Adjusted EBITDA for Cable Communications increased 14.5% to $7.1 billion in the second quarter of 2021, reflecting higher revenue, partially offset by an 8.2% increase in operating expenses. In the prior year period, total operating expenses benefited from adjustments for provisions in our programming distribution agreements with RSNs related to canceled sporting events as a result of COVID-19. In the second quarter of 2021, programming costs increased 12.1%, including the effects of the adjustment provisions in the prior year period. Excluding these adjustments(5), programming costs increased 5.0%, reflecting the timing of contract renewals, partially offset by a decline in the number of video subscribers. Non-programming expenses increased 5.7%, primarily reflecting higher technical and product support expenses and advertising, marketing and promotion expenses, partially offset by lower other expenses and customer service expenses. Non-programming expenses per customer relationship increased 0.5%. Adjusted EBITDA per customer relationship increased 8.9%, and Adjusted EBITDA margin was 44.2% compared to 42.8% in the prior year period. While the accrued RSN adjustments did not impact Adjusted EBITDA in the prior year period, they resulted in an increase to Adjusted EBITDA margin. Cable Communications results include Adjusted EBITDA(7) of $68 million from our wireless business, compared to a loss of $37 million in the prior year period.

For the six months ended June 30, 2021, Adjusted EBITDA per customer relationship increased 7.9%, and Adjusted EBITDA margin was 43.7% compared to 41.7% in 2020.

Beginning in the first quarter of 2021, the operations of Peacock, which were previously reported in Corporate and Other, are now included with NBCUniversal results and the operations of NBCUniversal are now presented in three reportable business segments: Media, Studios and Theme Parks. Prior periods have been adjusted to reflect this presentation.

Revenue for NBCUniversal increased 39.2% to $8.0 billion in the second quarter of 2021. Adjusted EBITDA increased 12.5% to $1.6 billion.

For the six months ended June 30, 2021, NBCUniversal revenue increased 11.4% to $15.0 billion compared to 2020. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 0.8% to $3.0 billion.

Media Media revenue increased 25.7% to $5.1 billion in the second quarter of 2021, reflecting higher advertising revenue, distribution revenue and other revenue. Advertising revenue increased 32.8%, reflecting an increase in the number of sporting events and higher pricing in the current period, and reduced spending from advertisers in the prior year period as a result of COVID-19, including from the postponement or cancellation of sporting events. These increases were partially offset by ratings declines. Distribution revenue increased 19.0%, driven by contractual rate increases in the current period and credits accrued at some of our RSNs in the prior year period resulting from the reduced number of games played by professional sports leagues in 2020 due to COVID-19, partially offset by a decline in subscribers at our networks. Other revenue increased 31.1% due to an increase in revenue from our digital properties. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 15.8% to $1.4 billion in the second quarter of 2021, reflecting higher revenue, more than offset by higher operating expenses. The increase in operating expenses was primarily driven by higher programming and production expenses, reflecting higher sports programming costs due to an increase in the number of sporting events compared to the prior year period when sports were postponed due to COVID-19, as well as higher amortization expense related to programming at Peacock. Media results include $122 million of revenue and an Adjusted EBITDA(7) loss of $363 million related to Peacock, compared to $6 million of revenue and an Adjusted EBITDA(7) loss of $117 million in the prior year period.

For the six months ended June 30, 2021, revenue from the Media segment increased 13.5% to $10.2 billion compared to 2020, reflecting higher distribution revenue, advertising revenue and other revenue. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 9.9% to $2.9 billion compared to 2020, reflecting higher operating expenses, which more than offset higher revenue. The increase in operating expenses was primarily driven by higher programming and production expenses, reflecting higher sports programming costs due to an increase in the number of sporting events in the current period, and amortization of content at Peacock. Media results include $213 million of revenue and an Adjusted EBITDA(7) loss of $640 million related to Peacock, compared to $6 million of revenue and an Adjusted EBITDA(7) loss of $176 million in 2020.

Studios Studios revenue increased 8.4% to $2.2 billion in the second quarter of 2021, primarily reflecting higher theatrical revenue. Theatrical revenue increased by $191 million, reflecting the comparison to the higher level of theater closures and theaters operating at reduced capacity due to COVID-19 in the prior year period, and the success of releases in this year's second quarter, including F9. Adjusted EBITDA decreased 51.7% to $156 million in the second quarter of 2021, reflecting higher operating expenses, which more than offset higher revenue. The increase in operating expenses was driven by higher programming and production expenses reflecting an increase in television series production and comparisons to the prior year period when production was paused due to COVID-19, as well as higher advertising, marketing and promotion expenses reflecting a higher number of theatrical releases in the current period.

For the six months ended June 30, 2021, revenue from the Studios segment increased 3.6% to $4.6 billion compared to 2020, reflecting higher content licensing revenue, partially offset by lower theatrical revenue and home entertainment and other revenue. Adjusted EBITDA increased 4.8% to $653 million compared to 2020, reflecting higher revenue, partially offset by higher operating expenses.

Theme Parks Theme Parks revenue increased $958 million to $1.1 billion in the second quarter of 2021, reflecting improved operating conditions compared to the prior year period, when each of our theme parks were closed for either the majority or entirety of the period as a result of COVID-19. Theme Parks Adjusted EBITDA was $221 million in the second quarter of 2021, which included pre-opening costs related to Universal Beijing Resort, compared to a $393 million Adjusted EBITDA loss in the prior year period.

For the six months ended June 30, 2021, revenue from the Theme Parks segment increased 61.5% to $1.7 billion compared to 2020, reflecting improved operating conditions compared to 2020, when each of our theme parks were either closed or operating at limited capacity as a result of COVID-19. Theme Parks Adjusted EBITDA was $159 million, which included pre-opening costs related to Universal Beijing Resort, compared to a $306 million Adjusted EBITDA loss in 2020.

Headquarters and Other NBCUniversal Headquarters and Other includes overhead, personnel costs and costs associated with corporate initiatives. Headquarters and Other Adjusted EBITDA loss was $186 million compared to a loss of $82 million in the prior year period.

For the six months ended June 30, 2021, Headquarters and Other Adjusted EBITDA loss was $395 million compared to a loss of $303 million in 2020.

Eliminations Amounts represent eliminations of transactions between our NBCUniversal segments, which are affected by the timing of recognition of content licenses between our Studios and Media segments. Revenue eliminations for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 were $534 million compared to $580 million in the prior year period, and Adjusted EBITDA eliminations were $15 million compared to $104 million in the prior year period.

For the six months ended June 30, 2021, revenue eliminations were $1.6 billion compared to $1.1 billion in 2020, and Adjusted EBITDA eliminations were $225 million compared to $110 million in 2020.

Revenue for Sky increased 28.0% to $5.2 billion in the second quarter of 2021. Excluding the impact of currency, revenue increased 14.9%, reflecting higher direct-to-consumer revenue, advertising revenue and content revenue. Direct-to-consumer revenue increased 7.7% to $4.2 billion, primarily driven by higher average revenue per customer relationship due to lower sports subscription revenues in the prior year period when sports were postponed due to COVID-19, as well as a rate increase in the U.K. Advertising revenue increased 78.8% to $643 million, reflecting an overall market recovery from COVID-19 as well as an increase in the number of sporting events in the current period. Content revenue increased 36.1% to $355 million, primarily due to higher wholesale revenue from sports programming compared to the prior year period when sports were postponed due to COVID-19.

For the six months ended June 30, 2021, Sky revenue increased 18.9% to $10.2 billion compared to 2020. Excluding the impact of currency, revenue increased 8.2%, reflecting higher direct-to-consumer revenue, advertising revenue and content revenue.

Excluding the impact of currency, Adjusted EBITDA decreased 32.4%, reflecting higher operating expenses, which more than offset higher revenue. The increase in operating expenses was primarily driven by higher programming and production expenses, reflecting higher sports programming costs due to an increase in the number of sporting events compared to the prior year period when sports were postponed due to COVID-19.

For the six months ended June 30, 2021, Sky Adjusted EBITDA decreased 29.0% to $924 million compared to 2020. Excluding the impact of currency, Adjusted EBITDA decreased 35.4%.

Corporate, Other and Eliminations

Corporate and Other Corporate and Other primarily relates to corporate operations and Comcast Spectacor. Revenue for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 was $92 million compared to $40 million in the prior year period. Corporate and Other Adjusted EBITDA loss was $261 million compared to a loss of $389 million in the prior year period, reflecting certain costs incurred in the second quarter of 2020 in response to COVID-19, including severance charges related to our businesses, which are presented in Corporate and Other.

For the six months ended June 30, 2021, Corporate and Other revenue was $181 million compared to $160 million in 2020. Corporate and Other Adjusted EBITDA loss was $541 million compared to a loss of $582 million in 2020.

Eliminations Amounts represent eliminations of transactions between Cable Communications, NBCUniversal, Sky and other businesses. Eliminations of transactions between NBCUniversal segments are presented separately. Revenue eliminations for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 were $723 million compared to $547 million in the prior year period, and Adjusted EBITDA eliminations were a benefit of $2 million compared to a benefit of $11 million in the prior year period.

Notes:
1                    We define Adjusted Net Income and Adjusted EPS as net income attributable to Comcast Corporation and diluted earnings per common share attributable to Comcast Corporation shareholders, respectively, adjusted to exclude the effects of the amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, investments that investors may want to evaluate separately (such as based on fair value) and the impact of certain events, gains, losses or other charges that affect period-over-period comparisons. See Table 5 for reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures.

2                    We define Adjusted EBITDA as net income attributable to Comcast Corporation before net income (loss) attributable to noncontrolling interests and redeemable subsidiary preferred stock, income tax expense, investment and other income (loss), net, interest expense, depreciation and amortization expense, and other operating gains and losses (such as impairment charges related to fixed and intangible assets and gains or losses on the sale of long-lived assets), if any. From time to time, we may exclude from Adjusted EBITDA the impact of certain events, gains, losses or other charges (such as significant legal settlements) that affect the period-to-period comparability of our operating performance. See Table 4 for reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measure.

4                    We define Free Cash Flow as net cash provided by operating activities (as stated in our Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows) reduced by capital expenditures and cash paid for intangible assets. From time to time, we may exclude from Free Cash Flow the impact of certain cash receipts or payments (such as significant legal settlements) that affect period-to-period comparability. Cash payments related to certain capital or intangible assets, such as the construction of Universal Beijing Resort, are presented separately in our Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows and are therefore excluded from capital expenditures and cash paid for intangible assets for Free Cash Flow. See Table 4 for reconciliation of non-GAAP financial measure.

6                    In the first quarter of 2021, we updated Cable Communications' total residential customer relationships and broadband customers due to a conforming change to methodology resulting in a reduction of approximately 26,000 customers. There was no impact to net additions and prior periods have been recast on a comparable basis.

7                    Adjusted EBITDA is the measure of profit or loss for our segments. From time to time, we may present Adjusted EBITDA for components of our reportable segments, such as Peacock and the wireless business within Cable Communications. We believe these measures are useful to evaluate our financial results and provide a basis of comparison to others, although our definition of Adjusted EBITDA may not be directly comparable to similar measures used by other companies. Adjusted EBITDA for components are generally presented on a consistent basis with the respective segments and include direct revenue and operating costs and expenses attributed to the component operations.

8                    Sky constant currency growth rates are calculated by comparing the current period results to the comparative period results in the prior year adjusted to reflect the average exchange rates from the current year period rather than the actual exchange rates in effect during the respective prior year periods. See Table 6 for reconciliation of Sky's constant currency growth.

9                    In the first quarter of 2021, we implemented conforming changes in the methodology for counting commercial customer relationships in Italy and Germany, which are now counted on a consistent basis with customers in the United Kingdom. The change resulted in a reduction in Sky's total customer relationships of 714,000 as of December 31, 2020. The impact of the change in methodology to customer relationship net additions for any period was not material. For comparative purposes, we have recast Sky's historical total customer relationships to reflect this adjustment.
