For the quarter, the company reported revenue of CAD 1,263 million compared to CAD 1,246 million a year ago. Operating income was CAD 334 million against CAD 273 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was CAD 265 million compared to CAD 176 million a year ago.

Cash flow from operating activities was CAD 521 million compared to CAD 495 million a year ago. Funds flow from operations was CAD 392 million compared CAD 429 million a year ago. Additions to property, plant and equipment was of CAD 258 million compared to CAD 257 million a year ago. Additions to equipment costs were CAD 11 million compared to CAD 30 million a year ago. Additions to other intangibles were of CAD 22 million compared to CAD 22 million a year ago. For the year, the company reported revenue of CAD 5,241 million compared to CAD 5,142 million a year ago. Operating income was CAD 1,439 million against CAD 1,366 million a year ago. Income before income taxes was CAD 1,195 million compared to CAD 1,067 million a year ago. Net income attributable to equity shareholders were CAD 857 million or CAD 1.84 per diluted share compared to CAD 746 million or CAD 1.63 per diluted share a year ago. The current periods benefitted from higher operating income before amortization and restructuring costs, lower amortization and interest expense and improved net other costs and revenue, partially offset by higher income taxes. On an annual basis, the impact of the aforementioned items was partially reduced by restructuring costs. Cash flow from operating activities was CAD 1,740 million compared to CAD 1,369 million a year ago. Funds flow from operations was CAD 1,524 million compared CAD 1,380 million a year ago. Additions to property, plant and equipment was of CAD 976 million compared to CAD 802 million a year ago. Additions to equipment costs were CAD 56 million compared to CAD 132 million a year ago. Additions to other intangibles were of CAD 84 million compared to CAD 69 million a year ago. With respect to 2015 guidance, on a preliminary basis, the company expects consolidated operating income before restructuring costs and amortization growth to range from 5% to 7% with the inclusion of ViaWest which is expected to contribute approximately USD 85 million. Increased capital investment (excluding amounts funded through the accelerated capital fund) is anticipated as the company continues to enhance its network, provide innovative product offerings and expand the ViaWest footprint. Combined with higher interest related to the ViaWest acquisition and increased cash taxes, free cash flow is expected to exceed CAD 650 million and annual core Cable CapEx of $750 million.
