迪士尼公布的第四季度业绩好于预期

2020-11-13 16:03

新华网洛杉矶11月12日电(记者王伟)美国娱乐巨头华特迪士尼公司12日发布2020财年第四季度财报,财报显示迪士尼公司2020财年第四季度财报好于预期。


在截至10月3日的这个季度,迪士尼的收入下降了约23%,为147.1亿美元,超过了一些分析师预期的142亿美元的平均收入。该公司去年同期盈利191.1亿美元。


第四季度持续经营的摊薄每股收益(EPS)为亏损39美分,上年同期为亏损43美分。该公司表示,排除某些影响可比性的项目,稀释后的本季度每股收益为亏损20美分,而去年同期为收益1.07美元。


首席执行官Bob Chapek在一份新闻稿中表示:“尽管COVID-19造成了破坏,但我们仍能够有效管理我们的业务,同时采取大胆、审慎的措施,使我们的公司处于更长期增长的位置。”


“真正的亮点是我们直接面向消费者的业务,这是我们公司的未来的关键,在这周年推出迪士尼+我们高兴地报告,第四季度的结束,服务拥有超过7300万付费用户在第一年,远远超过了我们的预期,”他补充道。


在好于预期的第四季度收益报告公布后,迪士尼股价在盘后交易中上涨6%。


迪士尼指出,COVID-19以及防止其传播的措施在许多方面对公司造成了影响,最重要的是在公园、体验和产品方面。迪士尼主题公园在今年的大部分时间都关闭或大幅减少运营容量。该公司的邮轮航行和导游服务自第二季度晚些时候开始暂停,零售商店也在今年的大部分时间关闭。该公司的商品授权业务也受到疫情的严重影响。


迪士尼表示,该季度的公园、体验和产品收入下降61%,至26亿美元,部门运营业绩下降25亿美元,至亏损11亿美元。本季度运营业绩下降的原因是美国和国际园区及体验业务的下滑。


“受COVID-19疫情影响,本季度迪士尼乐园和我们的邮轮业务全部关闭。上海迪士尼度假区于5月重新开放,华特迪士尼世界度假区和巴黎迪士尼乐园于7月中旬重新开放,香港迪士尼度假区在本季度初开放约两周,在本季度末开放约一周。我们所有重新开放的公园和度假村在本季度的运营能力明显下降。”


迪斯尼的工作室娱乐收入在本季度下降了52%,为16亿美元,部门运营收入下降了61%,为4.19亿美元。营业收入下降的原因是影院和家庭娱乐业绩下降。


迪斯尼指出戏剧分布较低在全球有一般没有明显的戏剧版本相比,本季度“狮子王”和“玩具总动员4日”,在上年度同期季度发布,并补充说当前季度被COVID-19负面影响为许多世界各地影院被关闭或操作能力降低。


该公司的家庭娱乐销售在第四季度也受到了影响,因为去年的《复仇者联盟4:终局之战》(Avengers: Endgame)、《阿拉丁》(Aladdin)和《惊奇队长》(Captain Marvel)都没有可比性。


迪士尼本季度直接面向消费者和国际市场的收入增长41%,达到49亿美元,运营亏损从7.51亿美元下降到5.8亿美元。运营亏损的减少主要是由于Hulu和ESPN+的业绩改善,部分被迪士尼+的成本上升所抵消,这主要是由于该公司正在推出的视频业务和国际频道的减少。

 

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 12 (Xinhua) -- The Walt Disney Company announced Thursday better-than-expected fourth quarter earnings results for fiscal year 2020 amid worries about the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the business of the U.S. entertainment giant.

Disney's revenue fell around 23 percent to 14.71 billion U.S. dollars in the quarter ended Oct. 3, surpassing the average 14.2 billion dollars in revenue that some analysts had expected. The company earned 19.11 billion dollars in the same period last year.

Diluted earnings per share (EPS) from continuing operations for the fourth quarter was a loss of 39 cents compared to income of 43 cents in the prior-year quarter. Excluding certain items affecting comparability, diluted EPS for the quarter was a loss of 20 cents compared to income of 1.07 dollars in the prior-year quarter, according to the company.

"Even with the disruption caused by COVID-19, we've been able to effectively manage our businesses while also taking bold, deliberate steps to position our company for greater long-term growth," said Chief Executive Officer Bob Chapek in a release.

"The real bright spot has been our direct-to-consumer business, which is key to the future of our company, and on this anniversary of the launch of Disney+ we're pleased to report that, as of the end of the fourth quarter, the service had more than 73 million paid subscribers -- far surpassing our expectations in just its first year," he added.

Shares of Disney rose as much as 6 percent in after-hours trading following the better-than-expected fourth quarter earnings results.

Disney noted that COVID-19 and measures to prevent its spread impacted the company in a number of ways, most significantly at Parks, Experiences and Products. Disney theme parks were closed or operating at significantly reduced capacity for a significant portion of the year. The company's cruise ship sailings and guided tours were suspended since late in the second quarter and retail stores were closed for a significant portion of the year. The company's merchandise licensing business has also been badly affected by the pandemic.

Disney said its Parks, Experiences and Products revenues for the quarter decreased 61 percent to 2.6 billion dollars, and segment operating results decreased 2.5 billion dollars to a loss of 1.1 billion dollars. Lower operating results for the quarter were due to decreases at both the U.S. and international parks and experiences businesses.

"As a result of COVID-19, Disneyland Resort and our cruise line business were closed for all of the current quarter. Shanghai Disney Resort re-opened in May, while Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Paris re-opened in mid-July and Hong Kong Disneyland Resort was open for about two weeks at the beginning of the quarter and about one week at the end of the quarter. All of our re-opened parks and resorts operated at significantly reduced capacities during the current quarter," the company stated.

Disney's Studio Entertainment revenues for the quarter decreased 52 percent to 1.6 billion dollars and segment operating income decreased 61 percent to 419 million dollars. The decrease in operating income was due to lower theatrical and home entertainment results.

Disney noted that theatrical distribution was lower as there were generally no significant worldwide theatrical releases in the quarter compared to "The Lion King" and "Toy Story 4," which were in release in the prior-year quarter, adding that the current quarter was negatively impacted by COVID-19 as many theaters throughout the world were either closed or operating at reduced capacity.

The company's home entertainment sales also suffered during the fourth quarter due to no comparable titles as last year's "Avengers: Endgame," "Aladdin" and "Captain Marvel."

Disney's Direct-to-Consumer and International revenues for the quarter increased 41 percent to 4.9 billion dollars and segment operating loss decreased from 751 million dollars to 580 million dollars. The decrease in operating loss was primarily due to improved results at Hulu and ESPN+, partially offset by higher costs at Disney+, driven by the ongoing rollout and a decrease at the company's international channels.
