CBS Entertainment Services Inc. Reports Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 31, 2013

CBS Entertainment Services Inc. reported earnings results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2013. For the period, the company reported revenues of $2.54 billion increased 10% from the same prior-year period, driven by higher advertising revenues from the broadcast of Super Bowl XLVII on the CBS Television Network as well as growth in network affiliation fees. These revenue increases were partially offset by one less week of NFL games during the first quarter of 2013 as well as the timing of the semifinals of the NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Championship, which aired during the second quarter in 2013 versus the first quarter in 2012. OIBDA increased 17% to $480 million from $411 million for the same prior-year period, principally reflecting the segment's revenue growth. Operating income was $440 million compared to $370 million a year ago.
