MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

OF RESULTS OF OPERATIONS AND FINANCIAL CONDITION

INTRODUCTION

Management’s discussion and analysis of results of operations and financial condition (“MD&A”) is a supplement to the accompanying consolidated financial statements and provides additional information on Time Warner Inc.’s (“Time Warner” or the “Company”) businesses, current developments, financial condition, cash flows and results of operations. MD&A is organized as follows:

 

   

Overview.  This section provides a general description of Time Warner’s business segments, as well as recent developments the Company believes are important in understanding the results of operations and financial condition or in understanding anticipated future trends.

 

   

Results of operations.  This section provides an analysis of the Company’s results of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014. This analysis is presented on both a consolidated and a business segment basis. In addition, a brief description of transactions and other items that affect the comparability of the results being analyzed is included.

 

   

Financial condition and liquidity.  This section provides an analysis of the Company’s financial condition as of June 30, 2014 and cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2014.

 

   

Caution concerning forward-looking statements.  This section provides a description of the use of forward-looking information appearing in this report, including in MD&A and the consolidated financial statements.

Separation of Time Inc.

On June 6, 2014, the Company completed the legal and structural separation of the Company’s Time Inc. segment from the Company (the “Time Separation”). With the completion of the Time Separation, the Company disposed of the Time Inc. segment in its entirety and ceased to consolidate its assets, liabilities and results of operations in the Company’s consolidated financial statements. Accordingly, the Company has recast its financial information to present the financial condition and results of operations of its former Time Inc. segment as discontinued operations in the accompanying consolidated financial statements for all periods presented. See Note 1, “Description of Business and Basis of Presentation,” to the accompanying consolidated financial statements. In connection with the Time Separation, the Company received $1.4 billion from Time Inc. consisting of proceeds from Time Inc.’s acquisition of the IPC publishing business in the U.K. from a wholly-owned subsidiary of Time Warner and a special dividend.

OVERVIEW

Time Warner is a leading media and entertainment company whose major businesses encompass an array of the most respected and successful media brands. Among the Company’s brands are TNT, TBS, CNN, HBO, Cinemax, Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema. During the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company generated Revenues of $13.591 billion (up 6% from $12.815 billion in 2013), Operating Income of $3.615 billion (up 29% from $2.806 billion in 2013), Income from continuing operations of $2.208 billion (up 51% from $1.462 billion in 2013), Net Income attributable to Time Warner shareholders of $2.142 billion (up 40% from $1.525 billion in 2013) and Cash provided by operations from continuing operations of $2.057 billion (up 35% from $1.525 billion in 2013).

Time Warner Businesses

Time Warner classifies its operations into three reportable segments: Turner, Home Box Office and Warner Bros. For additional information regarding Time Warner’s segments, refer to Note 13, “Segment Information,” to the accompanying consolidated financial statements.

Turner.  Time Warner’s Turner segment consists of businesses managed by Turner Broadcasting System, Inc. (“Turner”). During the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Turner segment recorded Revenues of $5.343 billion (39% of the Company’s total Revenues) and Operating Income of $1.829 billion.

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

OF RESULTS OF OPERATIONS AND FINANCIAL CONDITION – (Continued)

 

Turner operates domestic and international television networks, including such recognized brands as TNT, TBS, truTV, CNN, Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, which are among the leaders in advertising-supported television networks. The Turner networks generate revenues principally from providing programming to affiliates that have contracted to receive and distribute this programming to subscribers and from the sale of advertising. In addition, Turner provides online and mobile offerings for on-demand viewing of programs on its networks and live streaming of its networks to authenticated subscribers. Turner also manages and operates various digital media properties that primarily consist of websites, including CNN.com, CNNMoney.com, BleacherReport.com, NBA.com, NCAA.com and cartoonnetwork.com, that generate revenues principally from the sale of advertising and sponsorships.

Home Box Office.  Time Warner’s Home Box Office segment consists of businesses managed by Home Box Office, Inc. (“Home Box Office”). During the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Home Box Office segment recorded Revenues of $2.756 billion (20% of the Company’s total Revenues) and Operating Income of $1.012 billion.

Home Box Office operates the HBO and Cinemax multi-channel premium pay television services, with the HBO service ranking as the most widely distributed multi-channel premium pay television service. HBO- and Cinemax-branded premium pay and basic tier television services are distributed in more than 60 countries across Latin America, Asia and Europe. HBO and Cinemax domestic premium pay television subscribers have access to the authenticated HBO GO and MAX GO streaming services, respectively, on various mobile devices and other online platforms, and an authenticated HBO GO streaming service is available to international premium pay television subscribers of HBO in a number of countries. Home Box Office generates revenues principally from providing programming to domestic affiliates that have contracted to receive and distribute such programming to their customers who subscribe to the HBO or Cinemax services. Home Box Office’s agreements with domestic affiliates are typically long-term arrangements that provide for annual service fee increases and marketing support. While fees are generally based on the number of subscribers served by the affiliates, the relationship between subscriber totals and the amount of revenue earned varies between affiliates depending on the specific terms of the applicable agreement, which may include basic and/or pay television subscriber thresholds, volume discounts and other performance-based discounts. Marketing and promotional activities intended to retain existing subscribers and acquire new subscribers may also impact revenue earned. Home Box Office also derives subscription revenues from the distribution by international affiliates of country-specific HBO and Cinemax premium pay and basic tier television services to their local subscribers. Additional sources of revenues for Home Box Office are the home entertainment sales of its original programming, including Game of Thrones, True Blood and Boardwalk Empire, via DVDs, Blu-ray Discs and electronic sell-through (“EST”) and the licensing of its original programming primarily to international television networks and the Amazon Prime Instant Video subscription video-on-demand (“SVOD”) service (the “Amazon SVOD Service”).

Warner Bros.  Time Warner’s Warner Bros. segment consists of businesses managed by Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. (“Warner Bros.”) that principally produce and distribute feature films, television shows and videogames. During the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Warner Bros. segment recorded Revenues of $5.936 billion (41% of the Company’s total Revenues) and Operating Income of $603 million.

The Warner Bros. segment’s theatrical product revenues are generated principally through rental fees from theatrical exhibition of feature films, including the following recently released films: 300: Rise of An Empire, Edge of Tomorrow, Godzilla, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and The LEGO Movie, and subsequently through licensing fees received from the distribution of films on television broadcast and cable networks, premium pay television and SVOD services. Television product revenues are generated principally from the licensing of programs to television broadcast and cable networks, premium pay television and SVOD services. The segment also generates revenues for both its theatrical and television product through home video distribution on DVD and Blu-ray Discs and in various digital formats (e.g., EST and video-on-demand). In addition, the segment generates revenues through the development and distribution of videogames.

Warner Bros. continues to be an industry leader in the television content business. Domestically, for the 2014-2015 season, Warner Bros. expects to produce 60 series, including (i) at least two series for each of the five broadcast networks (including 2 Broke Girls, Arrow, The Bachelor, The Big Bang Theory, The Following, Gotham, The Mentalist, The Middle, Mike & Molly, Mom, Person of Interest, Two and a Half Men, Vampire Diaries and The Voice), (ii) original series for cable television networks (including Longmire, Major Crimes, Pretty Little Liars, Rizzoli & Isles and Sullivan & Son), (iii) series for first-run syndication (including The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Extra and TMZ) and (iv) animated series for cable television networks. Warner Bros. also licenses many of these series internationally. In addition, in 16 countries

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

OF RESULTS OF OPERATIONS AND FINANCIAL CONDITION – (Continued)

 

across Europe, South America, Australia and New Zealand, Warner Bros. operates a group of local television production companies that focus on developing non-scripted programs and formats that can be sold internationally and adapted for sale in the U.S. Warner Bros. also creates locally-produced versions of programs owned by the studio as well as original local television programming for international territories.

The distribution and sale of physical discs (both standard definition DVDs and high definition Blu-ray Discs) is one of the largest contributors to the segment’s revenues and profits. In recent years, home video revenues have declined as a result of several factors, including consumers shifting to subscription rental services and discount rental kiosks, which generate significantly less revenue per transaction for the Company than physical disc sales; changing retailer initiatives and strategies (e.g., reduction of floor space devoted to physical discs); retail store closures; increasing competition for consumer discretionary time and spending; and piracy. The electronic delivery of film and television content is growing and becoming more important to the Warner Bros. segment, which has helped to offset some of the decline in sales of physical discs. Consumer spending on physical discs continued to decline and consumer spending on electronic delivery continued to increase.

Recent Developments

Restructuring Activities

The Company plans to undertake restructuring activities to streamline its operations and reallocate resources to the Company’s strategic priorities. The restructuring plans are being developed and as such the Company is not able to estimate the charges that it will incur. However, the restructuring charges will likely be material and incurred during the second half of 2014. Additionally, the Company will be evaluating whether to dispose of certain licensed programming in connection with these restructuring activities. To the extent the Company decides to dispose of licensed programming, the Company will likely incur material impairment charges or termination fees.

2014 Debt Offering

On May 20, 2014, Time Warner issued $2.0 billion aggregate principal amount of debt securities in a public offering. See “Financial Condition and Liquidity – Outstanding Debt and Other Financing Arrangements” for more information.

Venezuela Currency

Certain of the Company’s divisions conduct business in Venezuela. As of June 30, 2014, the Company has $139 million of net Venezuelan Bolivares Fuertes (“VEF”) denominated consolidated monetary assets, primarily consisting of cash and accounts receivable, which have been remeasured at the official exchange rate as published by the Central Bank of Venezuela of 6.3 VEF to each U.S. Dollar. However, because of Venezuelan government-imposed restrictions on the exchange of foreign currency in Venezuela, the Company has not been able to convert VEF earned in Venezuela into U.S. Dollars at the official government rate.

In March of 2013, the Venezuelan government announced the creation of a new foreign currency exchange system called the Complimentary System of Foreign Currency Acquirement (“SICAD”), a complementary currency auction system it created for purchases of U.S. Dollars by certain eligible importers and tourists. In December 2013, the Venezuelan government published the SICAD rate for the first time and issued Exchange Agreement No. 24, which clarified that SICAD could be used only by companies operating in the oil and gas industry for certain transactions and for gold purchases conducted by the Central Bank of Venezuela. In January 2014, the government expanded the use of SICAD and announced that it would increase the amount of U.S. Dollars available to buyers to $220 million per week from $100 million. In addition, through Exchange Agreement No. 25, the government noted that it would expand the use of the SICAD auction rate for certain other types of transactions that were previously limited to the official rate. For the period that includes June 30, 2014, the published SICAD exchange rate was 10.6 VEF for each U.S. Dollar. Based on the published SICAD requirements, the Company does not believe it is eligible to access the SICAD exchange. If the Company had used the published SICAD exchange rate as of June 30, 2014 to remeasure its VEF-denominated consolidated monetary assets, the Company would have recognized foreign exchange losses of approximately $56 million, on a pretax basis, in its Consolidated Statement of Operations.

On March 24, 2014, the Venezuelan government introduced a new currency exchange system referred to as SICAD 2, which is regulated by the Central Bank of Venezuela. The Company does not believe it is eligible to access the SICAD 2 exchange due to the requirements regarding an entity’s legal structure that must be met for an entity to participate in the exchange. During the three months ended June 30, 2014, the published average daily rate was 50.0 VEF for each U.S. Dollar. Given the status of its eligibility to access the SICAD and SICAD 2 exchanges, the Company continues to use the official exchange rate for its remeasurement rate as of June 30, 2014. If the Company is able to utilize the SICAD 2 exchange system to regularly access U.S. Dollars in future periods, the SICAD 2 rate may be used as its remeasurement rate. If the Company had used the published SICAD 2 exchange rate as of June 30, 2014 to remeasure its VEF-denominated consolidated monetary assets, the Company would have recognized foreign exchange losses of approximately $121 million, on a pretax basis, in its Consolidated Statement of Operations.

Central European Media Enterprises Ltd.

During the second quarter of 2014, Time Warner and Central European Media Enterprises Ltd. (“CME”) completed a series of related financing transactions.

On May 2, 2014, pursuant to a rights offering by CME, Time Warner acquired approximately 2.8 million units, each consisting of $100 principal amount of 15% senior secured notes due 2017 and 21 unit warrants, with each unit warrant entitling the Company to purchase one share of CME Class A common stock. In addition, Time Warner acquired 581,533 units in a private offering, and CME issued warrants to Time Warner to purchase an additional 30 million shares of Class A common stock. The warrants issued to Time Warner, including the unit warrants in connection with the rights offering and the private offering, have a four-year term and an exercise price of $1.00 per share, do not contain any voting rights and are not exercisable until the second anniversary of their issuance. The warrants are subject to a limited right whereby the Company can exercise any of its warrants earlier solely to own up to 49.9% of CME’s Class A common stock.

Additionally, Time Warner provided CME with a $115 million revolving credit facility and a $30 million term loan that mature on December 1, 2017. Amounts outstanding under the revolving credit facility will bear interest at a rate per annum based on LIBOR (subject to a minimum rate of 1.00%) plus 14%. CME can pay accrued interest for an applicable quarterly interest period either fully in cash or by adding such amount to the outstanding principal amount of the revolving credit facility. The revolving credit facility also contains a commitment fee on the average daily unused amount under the facility of 0.50% per annum. As of June 30, 2014, no amounts have been drawn under the revolving credit facility. The $30 million term loan bears interest at a rate of 15.0% per annum, paid semi-annually either fully in cash or by adding such amount to the principal amount of the loan.

These transactions did not change the Company’s approximate 49% voting interest, but resulted in the Company holding an approximate 75% economic interest in CME on a diluted basis. The Company accounts for its investment in CME’s Class A common stock and Series A convertible preferred stock under the equity method of accounting. The Company accounts for its investment in CME’s Series B convertible redeemable preferred shares under the cost method of accounting. The warrants issued to Time Warner are recorded at fair value in the Consolidated Balance Sheet.

Eyeworks

On June 2, 2014, Warner Bros. acquired the operations outside the U.S. of Eyeworks Group, a television production and distribution company, which are located in 15 countries across Europe, South America, Australia and New Zealand, for approximately $267 million, net of cash acquired (the “Eyeworks Acquisition”). The Eyeworks Acquisition did not significantly impact the Company’s consolidated financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014.

Sale and Leaseback of Time Warner Center

On January 16, 2014, Time Warner sold the space it owned in Time Warner Center for approximately $1.3 billion and agreed to lease space in Time Warner Center from the buyer until early 2019. In connection with these transactions, the Company recognized a pretax gain of $441 million and a tax benefit of $58 million in the first quarter of 2014. Additionally, a pretax gain of approximately $325 million has been deferred and is being recognized ratably over the lease period. The Company also reached a preliminary agreement relating to the move of its Corporate headquarters and its New York City-based employees to the Hudson Yards development on the west side of Manhattan, which remains subject to

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, the increase in Subscription revenues was primarily related to increases at the Turner and Home Box Office segments. Advertising revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2014 increased primarily due to an increase at the Turner segment. Content revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2014 were essentially flat as increases at the Home Box Office and Turner segments were mostly offset by a decline at the Warner Bros. segment. The increase in Content revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was due primarily to an increase at the Warner Bros. and Home Box Office segments, partially offset by a decline at the Turner segment. The increase in Other revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was primarily related to an increase at the Warner Bros. segment.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 1% to $2.487 billion from $2.469 billion for the six months ended June 30, 2013 primarily related to increases at the Home Box Office segment and Corporate, partially offset by decreases at the Turner and Warner Bros. segments. The segment variations are discussed in “Business Segment Results.”

Included in Costs of revenues and Selling, general and administrative expenses is depreciation expense of $135 million and $268 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively, and $137 million and $272 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, respectively.

Restructuring and severance costs are as follows (millions):

 

                                                                                           
     Three Months Ended      Six Months Ended

Operating Income.  Operating Income increased to $1.567 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2014 from $1.387 billion for the three months ended June 30, 2013. Excluding the items noted under “Transactions and Other Items Affecting Comparability” totaling $51 million and $1 million of expense for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, Operating Income increased $230 million, reflecting increases at the Warner Bros., Home Box Office and Turner segments.

Operating Income increased to $3.615 billion for the six months ended June 30, 2014 from $2.806 billion for the six months ended June 30, 2013. Excluding the items noted under “Transactions and Other Items Affecting Comparability” totaling $371 million of income and $31 million of expense for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, Operating Income increased $407 million, reflecting increases at the Warner Bros., Home Box Office and Turner segments. The Company expects the Operating income growth rate in the second half of 2014 will be lower than the growth rate in the first half of 2014 mainly due to the timing of programming and marketing expenses at the Turner and Home Box Office segments as well as difficult comparisons related to theatrical releases in 2013 at the Warner Bros. segment.

The segment variations are discussed under “Business Segment Results.”

Interest Expense, Net.  For the three months ended June 30, 2014, Interest expense, net decreased to $296 million from $300 million for the three months ended June 30, 2013 reflecting higher interest income of $13 million mainly due to noncash interest income related to the investments in CME made in 2014. For the six months ended June 30, 2014, Interest expense, net decreased to $561 million from $589 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013 reflecting higher interest income of $49 million mainly due to the recognition of interest income on a note receivable that was collected in March 2014 and noncash interest income related to the recent investments in CME.

The increase in the effective tax rate for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was primarily due to a decrease in tax reserves in the prior year. The decrease in the effective tax rate for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was primarily due to the expected utilization of tax attribute carryovers.

Income from Continuing Operations.  Income from continuing operations was $843 million and $698 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively. Excluding the items noted under “Transactions and Other Items Affecting Comparability” totaling $33 million and $22 million of expense for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, income from continuing operations increased $156 million, primarily reflecting higher Operating Income.

The increase in Subscription revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 was primarily due to higher domestic rates.

The increase in Advertising revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 reflected domestic growth of $6 million and $53 million, respectively, driven by an increase at Turner’s domestic entertainment networks mainly due to the 2014 National Collegiate Athletic Association Division I Men’s Basketball Championship tournament (the “NCAA Tournament”), including the airing of additional games, and higher pricing. The increase in Advertising revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 was partially offset by lower audience delivery and demand.

Content revenues increased for the three months ended June 30, 2014 primarily due to the timing of SVOD availabilities. Content revenues decreased for the six months ended June 30, 2014 primarily related to lower licensing and merchandising sales.

(a)

Costs of revenues exclude depreciation.

The increase in Costs of revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 was primarily due to higher originals and sports programming costs, mainly due to higher costs related to the NCAA Tournament.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased mainly due to lower marketing expenses of $22 million and $13 million, respectively. In addition, the decline for the periods reflects the reversal of a $20 million accrued contingency.

As previously noted under “Transactions and Other Items Affecting Comparability,” the results for the three months ended June 30, 2014 included a $2 million gain on the sale of a building in South America, a $10 million charge related to miscellaneous asset impairments and a $3 million charge primarily related to exit costs for shutdowns of several small operations. In addition, the six months ended June 30, 2014 included a $13 million gain on operating assets related to the sale of Zite, a $7 million charge primarily related to exit costs for the shutdown of CNN Latino and a $1 million charge related to miscellaneous asset impairments. The results for the six months ended June 30, 2013 included a $12 million charge related to the impairment of certain Turner international intangible assets and an $8 million charge related to Turner’s decision in the first quarter of 2013 to shut down certain of its entertainment networks in Spain. This charge consisted of a $6 million impairment related to programming assets and a $2 million charge related to exit costs.

The increase in Operating Income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, was primarily due to higher Revenues and lower Selling, general and administrative expenses, partially offset by higher Costs of revenues.

The increase in Subscription revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 was primarily due to higher domestic subscription revenues of $53 million and $94 million, respectively, driven primarily by higher contractual rates, as well as the 2013 consolidation of HBO Asia and HBO South Asia (collectively, “HBO Asia”) and HBO Nordic, which contributed $48 million and $93 million, respectively.

The increase in Content revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 was primarily due to the licensing of select original programming to the Amazon SVOD Service.

The components of Costs of revenues for the Home Box Office segment are as follows (millions):

(a)

Costs of revenues exclude depreciation.

The increase in Costs of revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 reflected higher programming and other direct operating costs. The increase in programming costs was primarily due to higher Originals and sports programming costs, reflecting higher costs for original series, as well as higher Acquired films and syndicated series programming costs, reflecting the consolidation of HBO Asia and HBO Nordic. The increase in other direct operating costs was mainly due to the absence of a $31 million adjustment to a receivable allowance recorded in 2013.

As previously noted under “Transactions and Other Items Affecting Comparability,” the results for the three months ended June 30, 2014 included a $4 million noncash impairment of an international tradename. The results for the three months ended June 30, 2013 included a $9 million gain that was recognized as a result of the Company’s acquisition of Home Box Office’s former partner’s interest in HBO Nordic.

The increase in Operating Income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 was primarily due to higher Revenues, partially offset by higher Costs of revenues.

Theatrical product revenues from film rentals decreased for the three months ended June 30, 2014, reflecting lower revenues of $195 million from theatrical films released during the second quarter of 2014 compared to the second quarter of 2013. The Company released 5 and 4 theatrical films during the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively. Theatrical product revenues from film rentals increased for the six months ended June 30, 2014, reflecting higher revenues of $36 million from theatrical films released in the first half of 2014 compared to the first half of 2013. The Company released 9 theatrical films in the first half of both 2014 and 2013.

For the three months ended June 30, 2014, theatrical product revenues from home video and electronic delivery increased due to higher revenues of $216 million from releases during the second quarter of 2014 compared to the second quarter of 2013. There were 6 and 5 home video and electronic delivery releases during the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively. For the six months ended June 30, 2014, theatrical product revenues from home video and electronic delivery increased due to higher revenues of $63 million from releases in the first half of 2014 compared to the first half of 2013. There were 8 and 7 home video and electronic delivery releases during the first half of 2014 and 2013, respectively.

Theatrical product revenues from television licensing decreased for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 due in part to the timing and mix of availabilities.

Television product revenues from television licensing for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 increased primarily due to additional series produced.

The decrease in television product revenues from home video and electronic delivery for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 was primarily due to continued declines in sales of consumer packaged goods.

Other content revenues decreased for the three months ended June 30, 2014 primarily due to lower revenues of $62 million from videogames released during the second quarter of 2014 compared to the second quarter of 2013, offset in part by higher carryover revenues of $32 million from videogames released in prior periods.

The Company released 1 videogame during the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 3 videogames during the three months ended June 30, 2013.

Other content revenues increased for the six months ended June 30, 2014 primarily due to higher carryover revenues of $49 million from videogames released in prior periods offset in part by lower revenues of $17 million from videogames released in the first half of 2014 compared to the first half of 2013. The Company released 3 and 5 videogames in the first half of 2014 and 2013, respectively.

Included in film and television production costs are production costs related to videogames, as well as theatrical film valuation adjustments resulting from revisions to estimates of ultimate revenue for certain theatrical films. Theatrical film valuation adjustments for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 were $36 million and $10 million, respectively. There were no film valuation adjustments for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013. The changes in film and television production costs and print and advertising costs for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 were primarily due to the performance and mix of product released. Other costs, including merchandise and related costs, decreased for the three months ended June 30, 2014, primarily due to lower distribution costs associated with videogames. Other costs increased for the six months ended June 30, 2014, primarily due to higher distribution costs associated with videogames.

For the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased mainly due to a reversal of certain bad debt reserves.

As previously noted under “Transactions and Other Items Affecting Comparability,” the results for six months ended June 30, 2014 included a $5 million impairment of certain internally developed software and the results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 included $3 million and $5 million, respectively, of miscellaneous asset impairments.

The increase in Operating Income for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was primarily due to lower Costs of revenues, lower Selling, general and administrative expenses and lower Restructuring and severance costs, partially offset by lower Revenues. The increase in Operating Income for the six months ended June 30, 2014 was primarily due to higher Revenues, lower Selling, general and administrative expenses and lower Restructuring and severance costs, partially offset by higher Costs of revenues.

Selling, general and administrative expenses exclude depreciation.

As previously noted under “Transactions and Other Items Affecting Comparability,” the results for the six months ended June 30, 2014 included a $441 million gain in connection with the sale and leaseback of the Company’s space in Time Warner Center and a $6 million impairment of certain internally developed software. The results for the six months ended June 30, 2013 included an $8 million gain on the disposal of certain corporate assets and a $7 million impairment of certain internally developed software.

Excluding the transactions noted above, Operating Loss for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 increased due primarily to higher external costs related to mergers, acquisitions or dispositions of $27 million and $25 million, respectively, related to the Time Separation, as well as the impact of a reduction in certain accrued employee benefit plan liabilities in 2013.

Selling, general and administrative expenses included costs related to enterprise efficiency initiatives of $12 million for both the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, and $24 million and $22 million for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively. The enterprise efficiency initiatives involve the centralization of certain administrative functions to generate cost savings or other benefits for the Company.

FINANCIAL CONDITION AND LIQUIDITY

Management believes that cash generated by or available to the Company should be sufficient to fund its capital and liquidity needs for the foreseeable future, including scheduled debt repayments, quarterly dividend payments and the purchase of common stock under the Company’s stock repurchase program. Time Warner’s sources of cash include Cash provided by operations, Cash and equivalents on hand, available borrowing capacity under its committed credit facilities and commercial paper program and access to capital markets. Time Warner’s unused committed capacity at June 30, 2014 was $9.502 billion, which included $4.480 billion of Cash and equivalents.

In connection with the Time Separation, the Company received $1.4 billion from Time Inc. consisting of proceeds from Time Inc.’s acquisition of the IPC publishing business in the U.K. from a wholly-owned subsidiary of Time Warner and a special dividend.

Current Financial Condition

At June 30, 2014, Time Warner had net debt of $18.083 billion ($22.563 billion of debt less $4.480 billion of Cash and equivalents) and $25.907 billion of Shareholders’ equity, compared to net debt of $18.311 billion ($20.127 billion of debt less $1.816 billion of Cash and equivalents) and $29.904 billion of Shareholders’ equity at December 31, 2013.

The following table shows the significant items contributing to the decrease in net debt from December 31, 2013 to June 30, 2014 (millions):

On June 13, 2014, Time Warner’s Board of Directors authorized up to $5.0 billion of share repurchases in addition to the $5.0 billion it had previously authorized for share repurchases beginning January 1, 2014. Purchases under the stock repurchase program may be made from time to time on the open market and in privately negotiated transactions. The size and timing of these purchases are based on a number of factors, including price and business and market conditions. From January 1, 2014 through August 1, 2014, the Company repurchased 51 million shares of common stock for $3.539 billion pursuant to trading plans under Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

On January 16, 2014, Time Warner sold the space it owned in Time Warner Center for approximately $1.3 billion and agreed to lease space in Time Warner Center from the buyer until early 2019. In connection with these transactions, the Company recognized a pretax gain of $441 million and a tax benefit of $58 million in the first quarter of 2014. Additionally, a pretax gain of approximately $325 million has been deferred and is being recognized ratably over the lease period. The Company also reached a preliminary agreement relating to the move of its Corporate headquarters and its New York City-based employees to the Hudson Yards development on the west side of Manhattan, which remains subject to further negotiation and execution of final agreements. Assuming final agreements are reached, the Company expects to invest approximately $1.3 billion in the Hudson Yards development project over the next several years.

Cash Flows

Cash and equivalents increased by $2.664 billion, including $189 million of Cash used by discontinued operations, for the six months ended June 30, 2014. Cash and equivalents decreased by $766 million, including $117 million of Cash provided by discontinued operations for the six months ended June 30, 2013. Components of these changes are discussed below in more detail.

lower than expected valuations associated with the cash flows and revenues at Time Warner’s reporting units, which could result in Time Warner’s inability to realize the value recorded for intangible assets and goodwill at those reporting units;

   

increased volatility or decreased liquidity in the capital markets, including any limitation on the Company’s ability to access the capital markets for debt securities, refinance its outstanding indebtedness or obtain bank financings on acceptable terms;

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

Description of Business

Time Warner Inc. (“Time Warner” or the “Company”) is a leading media and entertainment company, whose businesses include television networks and film and TV entertainment. Time Warner classifies its operations into three reportable segments: Turner: consisting principally of cable networks and digital media properties; Home Box Office: consisting principally of premium pay television services domestically and premium pay and basic tier television services internationally; and Warner Bros.: consisting principally of feature film, television, home video and videogame production and distribution.

Separation of Time Inc.

On June 6, 2014 (the “Distribution Date”), the Company completed the legal and structural separation of the Company’s Time Inc. segment from the Company (the “Time Separation”). The Time Separation was effected as a pro rata dividend of all shares of Time Inc. common stock held by Time Warner in a spin-off to Time Warner stockholders. With the completion of the Time Separation, the Company disposed of the Time Inc. segment in its entirety and ceased to consolidate its assets, liabilities and results of operations in the Company’s consolidated financial statements. Accordingly, the Company has recast its financial information to present the financial condition and results of operations of its former Time Inc. segment as discontinued operations in the accompanying consolidated financial statements for all periods presented. For a summary of discontinued operations, see Note 2.

In connection with the Time Separation, the Company received $1.4 billion from Time Inc., consisting of proceeds relating to Time Inc.’s acquisition of the IPC publishing business in the U.K. from a wholly-owned subsidiary of Time Warner and a special dividend.

Basis of Presentation

Changes in Basis of Presentation

The 2013 financial information has been recast so that the basis of presentation is consistent with that of the 2014 financial information. This recast reflects the financial condition and results of operations of the Company’s former Time Inc. segment as discontinued operations for all periods presented.

Interim Financial Statements

The consolidated financial statements are unaudited; however, in the opinion of management, they contain all of the adjustments (consisting of those of a normal recurring nature) considered necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) applicable to interim periods. The consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements of Time Warner included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013 (the “2013 Form 10-K”).

Basis of Consolidation

The consolidated financial statements include all of the assets, liabilities, revenues, expenses and cash flows of entities in which Time Warner has a controlling interest (“subsidiaries”). Intercompany accounts and transactions between consolidated entities have been eliminated in consolidation.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements and footnotes thereto. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

28


Table of Contents

TIME WARNER INC.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS – (Continued)

 

Significant estimates and judgments inherent in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements include accounting for asset impairments, multiple-element transactions, allowances for doubtful accounts, depreciation and amortization, the determination of ultimate revenues as it relates to amortization of capitalized film and programming costs and participations and residuals, home video and videogames product, business combinations, pension and other postretirement benefits, equity-based compensation, income taxes, contingencies, litigation matters, reporting revenue for certain transactions on a gross versus net basis, and the determination of whether the Company should consolidate certain entities.

Venezuela Currency

Certain of the Company’s divisions conduct business in Venezuela. As of June 30, 2014, the Company has $139 million of net Venezuelan Bolivares Fuertes (“VEF”) denominated consolidated monetary assets, primarily consisting of cash and accounts receivable, which have been remeasured at the official exchange rate as published by the Central Bank of Venezuela of 6.3 VEF to each U.S. Dollar. However, because of Venezuelan government-imposed restrictions on the exchange of foreign currency in Venezuela, the Company has not been able to convert VEF earned in Venezuela into U.S. Dollars at the official government rate. While there are two other legal exchange systems available in Venezuela, the Company believes the official exchange rate is appropriate to use as its remeasurement rate at June 30, 2014 for several reasons, including (i) the Company’s belief that it is not eligible to access those other exchange systems, (ii) a lack of clarity about those exchange systems’ stability and transaction volume and (iii) the Company’s inability to access Venezuelan currency exchange markets operated by the government in the past several years. If the Company had used the least favorable legal published exchange rate as of June 30, 2014 to remeasure its VEF-denominated consolidated monetary assets, the Company would have recognized foreign exchange losses of approximately $121 million, on a pretax basis, in the Consolidated Statement of Operations.

Accounting Guidance Adopted in 2014

Presentation of Unrecognized Tax Benefits

On January 1, 2014, the Company adopted on a prospective basis guidance requiring a liability related to an unrecognized tax benefit to be offset against a deferred tax asset for a net operating loss carryforward, a similar tax loss or a tax credit carryforward if such settlement is required or expected in the event the uncertain tax position is disallowed. In situations in which a net operating loss carryforward, a similar tax loss or a tax credit carryforward is not available at the reporting date under the tax law of a jurisdiction or the tax law of a jurisdiction does not require it, and the Company does not intend to use the deferred tax asset for such purpose, the unrecognized tax benefit would be presented in the financial statements as a liability and will not be combined with deferred tax assets. The adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Accounting Guidance Not Yet Adopted

Revenue Recognition

In May 2014, guidance was issued that establishes a new revenue recognition framework in U.S. GAAP for all companies and industries. The core principle of the guidance is that an entity should recognize revenue from the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration the entity expects to receive for those goods or services. The guidance includes a five-step framework to determine the timing and amount of revenue to recognize related to contracts with customers. In addition, this guidance requires new or expanded disclosures related to the judgments made by companies when following this framework. The guidance will become effective on either a full or modified retrospective basis for the Company on January 1, 2017. The Company is evaluating the impact the guidance will have on its consolidated financial statements.

Discontinued Operations

In April 2014, guidance was issued that raises the threshold for disposals to qualify as discontinued operations. Under this new guidance, a discontinued operation is (i) a component of an entity or group of components that has been disposed of or is classified as held for sale and represents a strategic shift that has or will have a major effect on an entity’s

 

29


Table of Contents

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS – (Continued)

 

operations and financial results or (ii) an acquired business that is classified as held for sale on the acquisition date. This guidance also requires expanded or new disclosures for discontinued operations, individually material disposals that do not meet the definition of a discontinued operation, an entity’s continuing involvement with a discontinued operation following disposal and retained equity method investments in a discontinued operation. This guidance will become effective on a prospective basis for the Company on January 1, 2015 and is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

2. BUSINESS DISPOSITIONS AND ACQUISITIONS

Separation of Time Inc.

As discussed in Note 1, on June 6, 2014, the Company completed the legal and structural separation of the Company’s Time Inc. segment from the Company. With the completion of the Time Separation, the Company disposed of the Time Inc. segment in its entirety and ceased to consolidate its assets, liabilities and results of operations in the Company’s consolidated financial statements. Accordingly, the Company has recast its financial information to present the financial condition and results of operations of its former Time Inc. segment as discontinued operations in the consolidated financial statements for all periods presented.

Eyeworks

On June 2, 2014, Warner Bros. acquired the operations outside the U.S. of Eyeworks Group, a television production and distribution company, which are located in 15 countries across Europe, South America, Australia and New Zealand, for approximately $267 million, net of cash acquired (the “Eyeworks Acquisition”). The Eyeworks Acquisition did not significantly impact the Company’s consolidated financial results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014.

Summary of Discontinued Operations

Discontinued operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 reflect the financial condition and results of operations of Time Inc. and is as follows (millions, except per share amounts):

3. INVESTMENTS

Central European Media Enterprises Ltd.

During the second quarter of 2014, Time Warner and Central European Media Enterprises Ltd. (“CME”) completed a series of related financing transactions.

On May 2, 2014, pursuant to a rights offering by CME, Time Warner acquired approximately 2.8 million units, each consisting of $100 principal amount of 15% senior secured notes due 2017 (the “Senior Secured Notes”) and 21 unit warrants, with each unit warrant entitling the Company to purchase one share of CME Class A common stock. In addition, Time Warner acquired 581,533 units in a private offering, and CME issued warrants to Time Warner to purchase an additional 30 million shares of Class A common stock. The warrants issued to Time Warner, including the unit warrants in connection with the rights offering and the private offering, have a four-year term and an exercise price of $1.00 per share, do not contain any voting rights and are not exercisable until the second anniversary of their issuance. The warrants are subject to a limited right whereby the Company can exercise any of its warrants earlier solely to own up to 49.9% of CME’s Class A common stock.

Additionally, Time Warner provided CME with a $115 million revolving credit facility and a $30 million term loan that mature on December 1, 2017. Amounts outstanding under the revolving credit facility will bear interest at a rate per annum based on LIBOR (subject to a minimum rate of 1.00%) plus 14%. CME can pay accrued interest for an applicable quarterly interest period either fully in cash or by adding such amount to the principal amount of the revolving credit facility. The revolving credit facility also contains a commitment fee on the average daily unused amount under the facility of 0.50% per annum. As of June 30, 2014, no amounts have been drawn under the revolving credit facility. The $30 million term loan bears interest at a rate of 15.0% per annum, paid semi-annually either fully in cash or by adding such amount to the principal amount of the loan.

These transactions did not change the Company’s approximate 49% voting interest, but resulted in the Company holding an approximate 75% economic interest in CME on a diluted basis. The Company accounts for its investment in CME’s Class A common stock and Series A convertible preferred stock under the equity method of accounting. The Company accounts for its investment in CME’s Series B convertible redeemable preferred shares under the cost method of accounting. The warrants issued to Time Warner are recorded at fair value in the Consolidated Balance Sheet. The initial value of the warrants was recognized as a discount to the Senior Secured Notes and term loan and a deferred gain related to providing the revolving credit facility. The Senior Secured Notes are accounted for at the amortized cost and classified as held-to-maturity in the Consolidated Balance Sheet.

4. FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

A fair value measurement is determined based on the assumptions that a market participant would use in pricing an asset or liability. A three-tiered hierarchy draws distinctions between market participant assumptions based on (i) observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets (Level 1), (ii) inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are observable either directly or indirectly (Level 2) and (iii) unobservable inputs that require the Company to use present value and other valuation techniques in the determination of fair value (Level 3). The following table presents information about assets and liabilities required to be carried at fair value on a recurring basis as of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively (millions):

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS – (Continued)

 

As of both June 30, 2014 and 2013, assets and liabilities valued using significant unobservable inputs (Level 3) primarily consisted of assets related to equity instruments held by employees of former subsidiaries of the Company, liabilities for contingent consideration and options to redeem securities. The balance as of June 30, 2014 also includes an asset of $212 million related to warrants to purchase shares of CME Class A common stock. The Company estimates the fair value of these warrants using a Monte Carlo Simulation model. Significant unobservable inputs used in the fair value measurement at June 30, 2014 are an expected term of 3.2 years and an expected volatility of approximately 83%. The following table reconciles the beginning and ending balances of net derivative assets and liabilities classified as Level 3 and identifies the total gains (losses) the Company recognized during the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 on such assets and liabilities that were included in the Consolidated Balance Sheet as of June 30, 2014 and 2013 (millions):

Other Financial Instruments

The Company’s other financial instruments, including debt, are not required to be carried at fair value. Based on the interest rates prevailing at June 30, 2014, the fair value of Time Warner’s debt exceeded its carrying value by approximately $4.024 billion and, based on interest rates prevailing at December 31, 2013, the fair value of Time Warner’s debt exceeded its carrying value by approximately $2.754 billion. The fair value of Time Warner’s debt was considered a Level 2 measurement as it was based on observable market inputs such as current interest rates and, where available, actual sales transactions. Unrealized gains or losses on debt do not result in the realization or expenditure of cash and generally are not recognized in the consolidated financial statements unless the debt is retired prior to its maturity.

At June 30, 2014, the estimated fair value of the Company’s investment in CME’s Class A common stock, Series A convertible preferred stock and Series B convertible redeemable preferred shares exceeded its carrying value by approximately $150 million. At June 30, 2014, the Company’s investment in CME’s Senior Secured Notes is recorded at the amortized cost of $198 million, which approximates fair value.

The carrying value for the majority of the Company’s other financial instruments approximates fair value due to the short-term nature of the financial instruments or because the financial instruments are of a longer-term nature and are recorded on a discounted basis.

Non-Financial Instruments

The majority of the Company’s non-financial instruments, which include goodwill, intangible assets, inventories and property, plant and equipment, are not required to be carried at fair value on a recurring basis. However, if certain triggering events occur (or at least annually for goodwill and indefinite-lived intangible assets), a non-financial instrument is required to be evaluated for impairment. If the Company determines that the non-financial instrument is impaired, the Company would be required to write down the non-financial instrument to its fair value.

During the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company performed impairment reviews of certain intangible assets at international subsidiaries of Turner and Home Box Office. As a result, during the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company recorded noncash impairments of $5 million to write down the value of these assets to $7 million. During the six months ended June 30, 2013, the Company performed an impairment review of certain intangible assets at an international subsidiary of Turner. As a

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS – (Continued)

 

result, the Company recorded noncash impairments of $12 million to write down the value of these assets to zero at June 30, 2013. The resulting fair value measurements were considered to be Level 3 measurements and were determined using a discounted cash flow (“DCF”) methodology with assumptions for cash flows associated with the use and eventual disposition of the assets.

In determining the fair value of its theatrical films, the Company employs a DCF methodology that includes cash flow estimates of a film’s ultimate revenue and costs as well as a discount rate. The discount rate utilized in the DCF analysis is based on the weighted average cost of capital of the respective business (e.g., Warner Bros.) plus a risk premium representing the risk associated with producing a particular theatrical film. The fair value of any theatrical film and television production that management plans to abandon is zero. As the primary determination of fair value is determined using a DCF model, the resulting fair value is considered a Level 3 measurement. The following table presents certain theatrical film and television production costs, which were recorded as inventory in the Consolidated Balance Sheet, that were written down to fair value (millions):

6. DERIVATIVE INSTRUMENTS

Time Warner uses derivative instruments, principally forward contracts, to manage the risk associated with the volatility of future cash flows denominated in foreign currencies and changes in fair value resulting from changes in foreign currency exchange rates. The principal currencies being hedged include the British Pound, Euro, Australian Dollar and Canadian Dollar. Time Warner uses foreign exchange contracts that generally have maturities of three to 18 months to hedge various foreign exchange exposures, including the following: (i) variability in foreign-currency-denominated cash flows, such as the hedges of unremitted or forecasted royalty and license fees owed to Time Warner’s domestic companies for the sale or anticipated sale of U.S. copyrighted products abroad or cash flows for certain film production costs denominated in a foreign currency (i.e., cash flow hedges) and (ii) currency risk associated with foreign-currency-denominated operating assets and liabilities (i.e., fair value hedges). For these qualifying hedge relationships, the Company excludes the impact of forward points from its assessment of hedge effectiveness. As a result, changes in the fair value due to forward points are recorded in Other income (loss), net in the Consolidated Statement of Operations each quarter.

The Company also enters into derivative contracts that economically hedge certain of its foreign currency risks, even though hedge accounting does not apply or the Company elects not to apply hedge accounting. These economic hedges are used primarily to offset the change in certain foreign currency denominated long-term receivables and certain foreign-currency-denominated debt due to changes in the underlying foreign exchange rates.

Gains and losses from hedging activities recognized in the Consolidated Statement of Operations, including hedge ineffectiveness, were not material for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013. In addition, such gains and losses were largely offset by corresponding economic gains or losses from the respective transactions that were hedged.

The Company monitors its positions with, and the credit quality of, the financial institutions that are party to its financial transactions and has entered into collateral agreements with certain of these counterparties to further protect the Company in the event of deterioration of the credit quality of such counterparties on outstanding transactions. Additionally, netting provisions are included in agreements in situations where the Company executes multiple contracts with the same counterparty. For such foreign exchange contracts, the Company offsets the fair value of the amounts owed to or due from the counterparty and classifies the net amount as a net asset or net liability within Prepaid expenses and other current assets or Accounts payable and accrued liabilities, respectively, in the Consolidated Balance Sheet. The following is a summary of amounts recorded in the Consolidated Balance Sheet pertaining to Time Warner’s use of foreign currency derivatives at June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 (millions):

 

                                                             
     June 30, 2014(a)      December 31,
2013(b)
 

Prepaid expenses and other current assets

   $      $ 10   

Accounts payable and accrued liabilities

     (23)         (17)   

 

(a)

Includes $59 million ($51 million of qualifying hedges and $8 million of economic hedges) and $77 million ($50 million of qualifying hedges and $27 million of economic hedges) of foreign exchange derivative contracts in asset and liability positions, respectively.

(b) 

Includes $77 million ($64 million of qualifying hedges and $13 million of economic hedges) and $84 million ($53 million of qualifying hedges and $31 million of economic hedges) of foreign exchange derivative contracts in asset and liability positions, respectively.

At both June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, $28 million of gains related to cash flow hedges are recorded in Accumulated other comprehensive loss, net and are expected to be recognized in earnings at the same time the hedged items affect earnings. Included in Accumulated other comprehensive loss, net at June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013 are net gains of $4 million and $21 million, respectively, related to hedges of cash flows associated with films that are not expected to be released within the next twelve months.

8. SHAREHOLDERS’ EQUITY

Common Stock Repurchase Program

In January 2014, Time Warner’s Board of Directors authorized up to $5.0 billion of share repurchases beginning January 1, 2014, including amounts available under the Company’s prior stock repurchase program as of December 31, 2013. In June 2014, Time Warner’s Board of Directors authorized an additional $5.0 billion of share repurchases. Purchases under the stock repurchase program may be made from time to time on the open market and in privately negotiated transactions. The size and timing of these purchases are based on a number of factors, including price and business and market conditions.

From January 1, 2014 through June 30, 2014, the Company repurchased approximately 45 million shares of common stock for approximately $3.000 billion pursuant to trading plans under Rule 10b5-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. As of June 30, 2014, $7.000 billion was remaining under the stock repurchase program.

Comprehensive Income (Loss)

Comprehensive income (loss) is reported in the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income and consists of Net income and other gains and losses affecting shareholders’ equity that, under GAAP, are excluded from Net income. For Time Warner, such items consist primarily of foreign currency translation gains (losses), unrealized gains and losses on certain derivative financial instruments and equity securities, and changes in benefit plan obligations.

The following table sets forth the number of stock options, RSUs and target PSUs granted (millions):

RSUs

     2.6         3.2   

PSUs

     0.2         0.2   

In connection with the Time Separation and in accordance with existing antidilution provisions in the Company’s equity plans, the number of stock options, RSUs and PSUs outstanding at the Distribution Date and the exercise prices of such stock options were prospectively adjusted to maintain the value of those awards subsequent to the Time Separation. The changes in the number of shares subject to outstanding equity awards and the exercise prices were determined by comparing the value of such awards immediately prior to the Time Separation to the value of such awards immediately after the Time Separation. Accordingly, each equity award outstanding as of the Distribution Date was increased by multiplying the number of shares subject to such award by a factor of approximately 1.04, while the per share exercise price of each stock option was decreased by dividing by a factor of approximately 1.04. The adjustments resulted in an increase of approximately 2 million shares subject to outstanding equity awards following the Time Separation. The adjustments to the outstanding equity awards did not result in any additional compensation expense.

Compensation expense recognized for equity-based awards is as follows (millions):

Total unrecognized compensation cost related to unvested RSUs and target PSUs as of June 30, 2014, without taking into account expected forfeitures, is $242 million and is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period between one and two years.

Total unrecognized compensation cost related to unvested stock option awards as of June 30, 2014, without taking into account expected forfeitures, is $19 million and is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average period within one year.

14. COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Commitments

Six Flags

In connection with the Company’s former investment in the Six Flags theme parks located in Georgia and Texas (collectively, the “Parks”), in 1997, certain subsidiaries of the Company (including Historic TW and, in connection with the separation of TWC in 2009, Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.) agreed to guarantee (the “Six Flags Guarantee”) certain obligations of the partnerships that hold the Parks (the “Partnerships”) for the benefit of the limited partners in such Partnerships, including: annual payments made at the Parks or to the limited partners and additional obligations at the end of the respective terms for the Partnerships in 2027 and 2028 (the “Guaranteed Obligations”). The aggregate undiscounted estimated future cash flow requirements covered by the Six Flags Guarantee over the remaining term (through 2028) are $935 million (for a net present value of $418 million). To date, no payments have been made by the Company pursuant to the Six Flags Guarantee.

Six Flags Entertainment Corporation (formerly known as Six Flags, Inc. and Premier Parks Inc.) (“Six Flags”), which has the controlling interest in the Parks, has agreed, pursuant to a subordinated indemnity agreement (the “Subordinated Indemnity Agreement”), to guarantee the performance of the Guaranteed Obligations when due and to indemnify Historic TW, among others, if the Six Flags Guarantee is called upon. If Six Flags defaults in its indemnification obligations, Historic TW has the right to acquire control of the managing partner of the Parks. Six Flags’ obligations to Historic TW are further secured by its interest in all limited partnership units held by Six Flags.

Because the Six Flags Guarantee existed prior to December 31, 2002 and no modifications to the arrangements have been made since the date the guarantee came into existence, the Company is required to continue to account for the Guaranteed Obligations as a contingent liability. Based on its evaluation of the current facts and circumstances surrounding the Guaranteed Obligations and the Subordinated Indemnity Agreement, the Company is unable to predict the loss, if any, that may be incurred under the Guaranteed Obligations, and no liability for the arrangements has been recognized at June 30, 2014. Because of the specific circumstances surrounding the arrangements and the fact that no active or observable market exists for this type of financial guarantee, the Company is unable to determine a current fair value for the Guaranteed Obligations and related Subordinated Indemnity Agreement.

Contingencies

In the ordinary course of business, the Company and its subsidiaries are defendants in or parties to various legal claims, actions and proceedings. These claims, actions and proceedings are at varying stages of investigation, arbitration or adjudication, and involve a variety of areas of law.

On October 8, 2004, certain heirs of Jerome Siegel, one of the creators of the “Superman” character, filed suit against the Company, DC Comics and Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. Plaintiffs’ complaint seeks an accounting and demands up to one-half of the profits made on Superman since the alleged April 16, 1999 termination by plaintiffs of Siegel’s grants of one-half of the rights to the Superman character to DC Comics’ predecessor-in-interest. Plaintiffs have also asserted various Lanham Act and unfair competition claims, alleging “wasting” of the Superman property by DC Comics, and the Company has filed counterclaims. On March 26, 2008, the court entered an order of summary judgment finding, among other things, that plaintiffs’ notices of termination were valid and that plaintiffs had thereby recaptured, as of April 16, 1999, their rights to a one-half interest in the Superman story material, as first published, but that the accounting for profits would not include profits attributable to foreign exploitation, republication of pre-termination works and trademark exploitation. On January 10, 2013, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit reversed the district court’s decision to grant summary judgment in plaintiffs’ favor, holding that the parties reached a binding settlement agreement in 2001, and directed the district court to reconsider its ruling on DC Comics’ counterclaims challenging the validity of the plaintiffs’ termination notices. By orders dated March 20, 2013, April 18, 2013, and June 18, 2013, the district court, among other things, granted summary judgment and entered final judgment in this lawsuit and the related Superboy lawsuit, described below, in DC Comics’ favor, ruling that the plaintiffs had transferred any and all rights in the Superman and Superboy properties to DC Comics in 2001 pursuant to a binding settlement agreement. On July 16, 2013, the plaintiffs filed a notice of appeal from the final judgment to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

On October 22, 2004, the same Siegel heirs filed a related lawsuit against the same defendants, as well as Warner Communications Inc. (now known as Warner Communications LLC) and Warner Bros. Television Production Inc., in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California. Plaintiffs claim that Siegel was the sole creator of the character Superboy and, as such, DC Comics has had no right to create new Superboy works since the alleged October 17, 2004 termination by plaintiffs of Siegel’s grants of rights to the Superboy character to DC Comics’ predecessor-in-interest. This lawsuit seeks a declaration regarding the validity of the alleged termination and an injunction against future use of the Superboy character. As described in the paragraph above regarding the Superman lawsuit, by orders dated April 18, 2013 and June 18, 2013, the district court, among other things, entered final judgment in DC Comics’ favor, ruling that the plaintiffs had transferred any and all rights in the Superman and Superboy properties to DC Comics in 2001 pursuant to a binding settlement agreement. On July 16, 2013, the plaintiffs filed a notice of appeal from the final judgment to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

On May 14, 2010, DC Comics filed a related lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California against the heirs of Superman co-creator Joseph Shuster, the Siegel heirs, their attorney Marc Toberoff and certain companies that Mr. Toberoff controls. The lawsuit asserts a claim for declaratory relief concerning the validity and scope of the copyright termination notice served by the Shuster heirs, which, together with the termination notices served by the Siegel heirs described above, purports to preclude DC Comics from creating new Superman and/or Superboy works for distribution and sale in the United States after October 26, 2013. The lawsuit also asserts state law-based claims, including seeking declaratory relief with respect to, inter alia, the validity of various agreements between Mr. Toberoff, his companies and the Shuster and Siegel heirs, and claims for intentional interference by Mr. Toberoff with DC Comics’ contracts and prospective economic advantage with the Shuster and Siegel heirs, for which DC Comics seeks monetary damages. On October 17, 2012, the district court granted partial summary judgment in favor of DC Comics, holding that, among other things, the copyright termination notice served by the Shuster heirs is invalid and the agreements referenced above interfered with DC Comics’ rights under the copyright termination provisions. On April 4, 2013, the district court granted summary judgment in favor of defendants on DC Comics’ state law intentional interference claims. On November 21, 2013, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit affirmed the district court’s October 2012 decision. On January 21, 2014, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit denied defendants’ request for a rehearing of the court’s November 2013 decision. On June 20, 2014, the Shuster heirs filed a petition for writ of certiorari with the U.S. Supreme Court.

On April 4, 2007, the National Labor Relations Board (“NLRB”) issued a complaint against CNN America Inc. (“CNN America”) and Team Video Services, LLC (“Team Video”). This administrative proceeding relates to CNN America’s December 2003 and January 2004 terminations of its contractual relationships with Team Video, under which Team Video had provided electronic newsgathering services in Washington, DC and New York, NY. The National Association of Broadcast Employees and Technicians, under which Team Video’s employees were unionized, initially filed charges of unfair labor practices with the NLRB in February 2004, alleging that CNN America and Team Video were joint employers, that CNN America was a successor employer to Team Video, and/or that CNN America discriminated in its hiring practices to avoid becoming a successor employer or due to specific individuals’ union affiliation or activities. The NLRB complaint seeks, among other things, the reinstatement of certain union members and monetary damages. On November 19, 2008, the presiding NLRB Administrative Law Judge issued a non-binding recommended decision, finding CNN America liable. On February 17, 2009, CNN America filed exceptions to this decision with the NLRB.

In April 2013, the Internal Revenue Service (the “IRS”) Appeals Division issued a notice of deficiency to the Company relating to the appropriate tax characterization of stock warrants received from Google Inc. in 2002. On May 6, 2013, the Company filed a petition with the United States Tax Court seeking a redetermination of the deficiency set forth in the notice. The Company’s petition asserts that the IRS erred in determining that the stock warrants were taxable upon exercise (in 2004) rather than at the date of grant based on, among other things, a misapplication of Section 83 of the Internal Revenue Code. Should the IRS prevail in this litigation, the additional tax payable by the Company would be approximately $70 million.

The Company intends to vigorously defend against or prosecute, as applicable, the matters described above.

The Company establishes an accrued liability for legal claims when the Company determines that a loss is both probable and the amount of the loss can be reasonably estimated. Once established, accruals are adjusted from time to time, as appropriate, in light of additional information. The amount of any loss ultimately incurred in relation to matters for

Table of Contents

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS – (Continued)

 

which an accrual has been established may be higher or lower than the amounts accrued for such matters.

For matters disclosed above for which a loss is probable or reasonably possible, whether in excess of an accrued liability or where there is no accrued liability, the Company has estimated a range of possible loss. The Company believes the estimate of the aggregate range of possible loss in excess of accrued liabilities for such matters is between $0 and $130 million at June 30, 2014. The estimated aggregate range of possible loss is subject to significant judgment and a variety of assumptions. The matters represented in the estimated aggregate range of possible loss will change from time to time and actual results may vary significantly from the current estimate.

In view of the inherent difficulty of predicting the outcome of litigation and claims, the Company often cannot predict what the eventual outcome of the pending matters will be, what the timing of the ultimate resolution of these matters will be, or what the eventual loss, fines or penalties related to each pending matter may be. An adverse outcome in one or more of these matters could be material to the Company’s results of operations or cash flows for any particular reporting period.

Income Tax Uncertainties

During the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company recorded net increases to income tax reserves of approximately $32 million, of which approximately $20 million impacted the Company’s effective tax rate. During the six months ended June 30, 2014, the Company recorded increases to interest reserves related to the income tax reserves of approximately $35 million.

In the Company’s judgment, uncertainties related to certain tax matters are reasonably possible of being resolved during the next twelve months. The effect of such resolution, which could vary based on the final terms and timing of actual settlements with taxing authorities, is estimated to be a reduction of recorded unrecognized tax benefits ranging from $0 to $650 million, most of which would decrease the Company’s effective tax rate.

 

15. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

The Company has entered into certain transactions in the ordinary course of business with unconsolidated investees accounted for under the equity method of accounting. These transactions have been executed on terms comparable to the terms of transactions with unrelated third parties and primarily relate to the licensing of television programming to The CW broadcast network and certain international networks by the Warner Bros. segment. Revenues and expenses resulting from transactions with related parties consist of (millions):

Accounting for Collaborative Arrangements

The Company’s collaborative arrangements primarily relate to arrangements entered into with third parties to jointly finance and distribute theatrical productions and the arrangement entered into with CBS Broadcasting, Inc. (“CBS”) and The National Collegiate Athletic Association (the “NCAA”) that provides Turner and CBS with exclusive television, Internet and wireless rights to the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship events (the “NCAA Tournament”) in the United States and its territories and possessions from 2011 through 2024.

For the Company’s collaborative arrangements entered into with third parties to jointly finance and distribute theatrical productions, net participation costs of $187 million and $155 million were recorded in Costs of revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively, and $305 million and $243 million were recorded in Costs of revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively.

The aggregate programming rights fee, production costs, advertising revenues and sponsorship revenues related to the NCAA Tournament and related programming are shared equally by Turner and CBS. However, if the amount paid for the programming rights fee and production costs, in any given year, exceeds advertising and sponsorship revenues for that year, CBS’ share of such shortfall is limited to specified annual amounts, ranging from approximately $90 million to $30 million.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION

CONDENSED CONSOLIDATING FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Overview

Set forth below are condensed consolidating financial statements presenting the financial position, results of operations and cash flows of (i) Time Warner Inc. (the “Parent Company”), (ii) Historic TW Inc. (in its own capacity and as successor by merger to Time Warner Companies, Inc.), Home Box Office, Inc., and Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., each a wholly owned subsidiary of the Parent Company (collectively, the “Guarantor Subsidiaries”), on a combined basis, (iii) the direct and indirect non-guarantor subsidiaries of the Parent Company (the “Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries”), on a combined basis, and (iv) the eliminations necessary to arrive at the information for Time Warner Inc. on a consolidated basis. The Guarantor Subsidiaries fully and unconditionally, jointly and severally guarantee securities issued under certain of the Company’s indentures on an unsecured basis.

There are no legal or regulatory restrictions on the Parent Company’s ability to obtain funds from any of its wholly owned subsidiaries through dividends, loans or advances.

Basis of Presentation

The Company’s financial information has been recast to reflect the financial condition and results of operations of the Company’s former Time Inc. segment as discontinued operations for all periods presented. Amounts presented in the Consolidating Balance Sheet at December 31, 2013 related to discontinued operations of the Parent Company and the Guarantor Subsidiaries principally relate to the impact of the Time Separation on the Parent Company’s and the Guarantor Subsidiaries’ deferred income taxes.

In presenting the condensed consolidating financial statements, the equity method of accounting has been applied to (i) the Parent Company’s interests in the Guarantor Subsidiaries and (ii) the Guarantor Subsidiaries’ interests in the Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries, where applicable, even though all such subsidiaries meet the requirements to be consolidated under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles. All intercompany balances and transactions between the Parent Company, the Guarantor Subsidiaries and the Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries have been eliminated, as shown in the column “Eliminations.”

The Parent Company’s accounting bases in all subsidiaries, including goodwill and identified intangible assets, have been “pushed down” to the applicable subsidiaries. Corporate overhead expenses have been reflected as expenses of the Parent Company and have not been allocated to the Guarantor Subsidiaries or the Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries. Interest income (expense) is determined based on outstanding debt and the relevant intercompany amounts at the respective subsidiary.

All direct and indirect domestic subsidiaries are included in Time Warner Inc.’s consolidated U.S. tax return. In the condensed consolidating financial statements, tax expense has been allocated based on each such subsidiary’s relative pretax income to the consolidated pretax income. With respect to the use of certain consolidated tax attributes (principally operating and capital loss carryforwards), such benefits have been allocated to the respective subsidiary that generated the taxable income permitting such use (i.e., pro-rata based on where the income was generated). For example, to the extent a Non-Guarantor Subsidiary generated a gain on the sale of a business for which the Parent Company utilized tax attributes to offset such gain, the tax attribute benefit would be allocated to that Non-Guarantor Subsidiary. Deferred taxes of the Parent Company, the Guarantor Subsidiaries and the Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries have been determined based on the temporary differences between the book and tax basis of the respective assets and liabilities of the applicable entities.

Certain transfers of cash between subsidiaries and their parent companies and intercompany dividends are reflected as cash flows from investing and financing activities in the accompanying Condensed Consolidating Statements of Cash Flows. All other intercompany activity is reflected in cash flows from operations.

Management believes that the allocations and adjustments noted above are reasonable. However, such allocations and adjustments may not be indicative of the actual amounts that would have been incurred had the Parent Company, Guarantor Subsidiaries and Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries operated independently.
