Mediaset Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the Third Quarter and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2014

Mediaset reported consolidated earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2014. For the nine months, the company widened its nine-month net loss to EUR 46.8 million from EUR 27.3 million in the same period last year, as the Italian market decline was unable to offset signs of recovery in Spain. Consolidated revenues inched down to EUR 2,388 million from EUR 2,390 million a year ago. The company's consolidated earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA), however, rose to EUR 895.7 million from EUR 867.5 million, again pushed up by the Spanish business. The company cut its net debt to EUR 968.4 million at end-September from EUR 1,49 million at end-2013, due to free cash flow from core activities of EUR 214.4 million and a EUR 280.2 million gain on the sale of 25% in Ei Towers in which Mediaset now holds 40%.

Mediaset Announces Execitve Changes

Mediaset has announced a series of organisational changes at its Italian free to air channels, including the appointment of the first woman to be named a director of an Italian broadcast channel. Laura Casarotto, current Mediaset TV marketing manager, will take over as director of Italia 1, while Mediaset marketing information manager Sebastiano Lombardi has been appointed director of Retequattro. In addition, Marco Costa, the deputy director of Canale 5, will take over as head of the broadcaster's free to air thematic channels. Former Italia 1 director, Luca Tiraboschi, has been named editorial director for infotainment programming, and current Retequattro director Giuseppe Feyles will become entertainment production coordinator in Rome.

Mediaset To Reportedly Sell Its Mediaset Premium To Telecom Italia

Mediaset SpA (BIT:MS) may transfer its pay-TV R.T.I. - Reti Televisive Italiane S.p.A. to Telecom Italia S.p.A. (BIT:TIT) in exchange for an 8% stake in Telecom Italia, reported business daily Il Sole 24 Ore, quoting rumours circling in Rome. The report said that a true merger between the two groups is out of the scope as it would not only lack business sense but will also be incompatible with the current Italian legislation. Il Sole added that Mediaset, is getting ready to spin off the pay-TV business in a new company expected to become operational in December 2014, and the idea to transfer that new company into Telecom Italia would not be in conflict with Mediaset's strategies. Another idea may be Telecom Italia entering the new Mediaset Premium company. None of the ideas has reached the stage of a plan, nor contacts have been launched, Il Sole said.
