Financial report summary

ComcastTribune MediaNetflixComcastGoogleIHSFacebookYouTube
  • We are impacted by demand for advertising, which, in turn, depends on a number of factors, some of which are cyclical and many of which are beyond our control
  • Competition from alternative forms of media may impair our ability to grow or maintain revenue levels in traditional and new businesses
  • The value of our assets or operations may be diminished if our information technology systems fail to perform adequately
  • Our efforts to minimize the likelihood and impact of adverse cybersecurity incidents and to protect our technology and confidential information may not be successful and our business could be negatively affected
  • We operate our business in a single broadcast segment, which increases our exposure to the changes and highly competitive environment of the broadcast industry
  • Changes in the regulatory environment could increase our costs or limit our opportunities for growth
  • There could be significant liability if the spin-off of was determined to be a taxable transaction
  • Our proxy contest with Standard General L.P. has caused and could continue to cause us to incur significant costs, divert management’s attention and resources, and have an adverse effect on our business
  • Our strategic acquisitions, investments and partnerships could pose various risks, increase our leverage and may significantly impact our ability to expand our overall profitability
  • Volatility in the U.S. credit markets could significantly impact our ability to obtain new financing to fund our operations and strategic initiatives or to refinance our existing debt at reasonable rates and terms as it matures
  • The value of our existing intangible assets may become impaired, depending upon future operating results
Management Discussion
  • As discussed above, the full impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly with regard to the broader advertising industry, remains uncertain. As a result, on April 20, 2020, we suspended our full year 2020 guidance and 2021 preliminary outlook.
