DISCOVERY, INC. REPORTS THIRD QUARTER 2018 RESULTS

Silver Spring, MD – November 8, 2018: Discovery, Inc. (“Discovery” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: DISCA, DISCB, DISCK) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.

“Our solid third quarter results demonstrate the strength of our brands and unmatched multi-platform distribution network, as we continue to position our broad suite of IP to maximize value and extend our global presence,” said David Zaslav, President and Chief Executive Officer for Discovery. "We are very pleased with how far we've come in the eight months since we closed our merger with Scripps Networks, highlighted by the acceleration of synergy generation and strong Adjusted OIBDA growth in the third quarter. Additionally, we continue to drive organic growth opportunities across our diverse portfolio, further positioning us for continued cash flow generation and additional value creation. We remain increasingly optimistic about the roadmap ahead of us as we drive forward with our plan to transform our Company.”

Third Quarter 2018 Results
Third quarter revenues of $2,592 million increased 57% on a reported basis compared with the prior year quarter. Excluding the impact of foreign currency fluctuations and the Scripps Networks Interactive (“Scripps Networks”), Motor Trend Group, LLC (“MTG”) and the Oprah Winfrey Network (“OWN”) transactions (collectively, “the Transactions”)(1), revenues increased 1%, as a 3% increase in International Networks and a 2% increase in U.S. Networks were partially offset by a significant decrease in Education and Other revenues due to the sale of the education business(2) on April 30, 2018. On a pro forma(3) combined basis, excluding the impact of foreign currency fluctuations, total company third quarter revenues increased 2%, as International Networks revenues increased 2% and U.S. Networks revenues increased 4%, partially offset by the significant decrease in Education and Other revenues.

Third quarter Adjusted Operating Income Before Depreciation and Amortization (“Adjusted OIBDA”)(4) increased 82% to $1,044 million on a reported basis compared with the prior year quarter. Excluding the impact of the Transactions and foreign currency fluctuations, Adjusted OIBDA increased 9% compared with the prior year quarter, as International Networks increased 21% and U.S. Networks increased 6%. On a pro forma combined basis, excluding the impact of foreign currency fluctuations, third quarter Adjusted OIBDA increased 18%, as International Networks' Adjusted OIBDA increased 27% and U.S. Networks Adjusted OIBDA increased 13%.

Third quarter net income available to Discovery ("DCI Net Income") was $117 million, compared with $218 million in the prior year quarter, as improved operating results were more than offset by higher restructuring and other charges associated with the integration of Scripps Networks, higher tax expenses and higher interest expense. Diluted earnings per share(5) decreased to $0.16 due to lower DCI Net Income. Adjusted Earnings Per Diluted Share ("Adjusted EPS")(4),(5), which excludes the impact of amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets, net of tax was $0.52. Adjusted EPS excluding restructuring and other charges was $0.79, and included $190 million (or $0.27 per share) of after-tax restructuring and other charges.


(1)
The Transactions refer to the Company's acquisition of Scripps Networks on March 6, 2018, acquisition of a controlling interest in OWN on November 30, 2017 and the contribution of businesses from MTG on September 25, 2017.
(2)
The Company sold a majority stake in the education business on April 30, 2018.
(3)
Pro forma is defined as the results of the Company as if the Transactions had occurred on January 1, 2017. Refer to page 6 for the full list of pro forma adjustments and to page 11 for pro forma operating results.
(4)
See full definitions of Adjusted OIBDA and Adjusted EPS on page 5.
(5)
All per share amounts are calculated using DCI Net Income. Refer to table on page 21 for the full schedule.

Free cash flow(1) increased to $907 million for the third quarter of 2018 as cash flow from operations increased to $931 million while capital expenditures of $24 million were consistent with the prior year quarter. Third quarter cash flow from operations increased primarily due to higher operating results due to the Transactions offset by higher content costs, restructuring costs and interest expense.

The growth in third quarter pro forma advertising revenues was primarily driven by increases in pricing and to a lesser extent volume, as well as the continued monetization of digital content offerings, partially offset by the impact of audience declines on our linear networks. Pro forma distribution revenues remained consistent, as increases in contractual affiliate rates were offset by a decline in subscribers and lower contributions from content deliveries under licensing agreements. On a pro forma combined basis, total portfolio subscribers declined 5%, while subscribers to our fully distributed networks declined 2%.

Operating expenses for U.S. Networks on a reported basis increased to $773 million compared with operating expenses of $343 million in the prior year quarter. Excluding the impact of the Transactions, operating expenses decreased 3%, as costs of revenues decreased 4% and SG&A expenses decreased 1%. On a pro forma combined basis, total operating expenses decreased 6%, as costs of revenues decreased 6% and SG&A expenses decreased 4%. The decrease in pro forma combined operating expenses was primarily attributable to higher content impairment expense recorded by Scripps Networks during the three months ended September 30, 2017, lower personnel costs due to restructuring and the integration of Scripps Networks and decreased spending on marketing.

U.S. Networks' Adjusted OIBDA increased 88% to $901 million on a reported basis compared with the prior year quarter. Excluding the impact of the Transactions, U.S. Networks' Adjusted OIBDA increased 6%. On a pro forma combined basis, Adjusted OIBDA increased 13%, driven by increases in revenues and declines in operating expenses.

International Networks’ revenues for the third quarter of 2018 on a reported basis increased 15% to $916 million compared with the prior year quarter. Excluding the impact of the acquisition of Scripps Networks and foreign currency fluctuations, International Networks' revenues increased 3%, driven by a 3% increase in distribution revenues, while advertising revenues remained flat and other revenues decreased $1 million. On a pro forma combined basis, excluding the impact of foreign currency fluctuations, International Networks' revenues increased 2%, driven by a 3% increase in distribution revenues and a 2% increase in advertising revenues, slightly offset by a decrease in other revenues. Pro forma distribution revenue growth was primarily driven by increases in subscribers to our linear networks and digital subscription revenues in Europe and increases in pricing in Latin America, partially offset by pricing declines in Asia. Pro forma advertising revenue growth was primarily driven by increases in Europe, mostly due to higher pricing, partially offset by viewership declines in Europe.

Operating expenses for International Networks on a reported basis increased to $662 million compared with operating expenses of $616 million the prior year quarter. Excluding the impact of the acquisition of Scripps Networks and foreign currency fluctuations, operating expenses decreased 3%, as costs of revenues decreased 6% slightly offset by an increase in SG&A of 4%. On a pro forma combined basis, excluding currency effects, operating expenses decreased 5%, as costs of revenues decreased 7%, primarily attributable to content synergies following the acquisition of Scripps Networks while SG&A remained consistent, as cost savings from the integration of Scripps Networks offset increased personnel spending related to digital distribution offerings.

International Networks' Adjusted OIBDA increased 41% to $254 million on a reported basis compared with the prior year quarter. Excluding the impact of the acquisition of Scripps Networks and foreign currency fluctuations, International Networks' Adjusted OIBDA increased 21%. On a pro forma combined basis, excluding currency effects, Adjusted OIBDA increased 27%. The increase in pro forma combined Adjusted OIBDA was primarily driven by increases in revenues and decreases in costs of revenues.

Education and Other revenues for the third quarter of 2018 decreased $29 million and Adjusted OIBDA was flat due to the sale of a majority stake in the education business resulting in deconsolidation on April 30, 2018. The Education and Other segment now only includes activities associated with inter-company sales of productions for the U.S. Networks segment.

Corporate and Inter-Segment Eliminations
Adjusted OIBDA for the third quarter of 2018 decreased 31% on a reported basis compared with the prior year quarter. Excluding the impact of the acquisition of Scripps Networks and foreign currency fluctuations, Adjusted OIBDA decreased 20%. On a pro forma combined basis, excluding the impact of foreign currency fluctuations, Adjusted OIBDA decreased 1% compared with the prior year quarter due to increased technology costs, partially offset by reductions in personnel costs as a result of the integration of Scripps Networks.


FULL YEAR 2018 OUTLOOK(1)
Discovery will provide forward-looking guidance in connection with this quarterly earnings announcement on its quarterly earnings conference call and webcast referenced hereafter.




















(1)
Discovery is unable to provide a reconciliation of the forward-looking guidance to GAAP measures as, at this time, Discovery cannot determine all of the adjustments that would be required.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES
In addition to the results prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) provided in this release, the Company has presented Adjusted OIBDA, Adjusted EPS and free cash flow. These non-GAAP measures should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for, operating income, net income, earnings per diluted share and other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP. Please review the supplemental financial schedules beginning on page 19 for reconciliations to the most comparable GAAP measures.

Adjusted OIBDA and Adjusted OIBDA Excluding the Impact of Currency Effects
The Company evaluates the operating performance of its segments based on financial measures such as revenues and Adjusted Operating Income Before Depreciation and Amortization (“Adjusted OIBDA”). Adjusted OIBDA is defined as operating income excluding: (i) mark-to-market share-based compensation, (ii) depreciation and amortization, (iii) restructuring and other charges, (iv) certain impairment charges, (v) gains and losses on business and asset dispositions, (vi) certain inter-segment eliminations related to production studios, and (vii) third-party transaction costs directly related to the acquisition and integration of Scripps Networks.

The Company uses Adjusted OIBDA to assess the operating results and performance of its segments, perform analytical comparisons, identify strategies to improve performance and allocate resources to each segment. The Company believes Adjusted OIBDA is relevant to investors because it allows them to analyze the operating performance of each segment using the same metric management uses. The Company excludes mark-to-market share-based compensation, restructuring and other charges, certain impairment charges, gains and losses on business and asset dispositions and Scripps Networks transaction and integration costs from the calculation of Adjusted OIBDA due to their impact on comparability between periods. The Company also excludes depreciation of fixed assets and amortization of intangible assets, as these amounts do not represent cash payments in the current reporting period. Certain corporate expenses are excluded from segment results to enable executive management to evaluate segment performance based upon the decisions of segment executives. Total Adjusted OIBDA should be considered in addition to, but not a substitute for, operating income, net income and other measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP. Refer to the comments that follow for our methodology for calculating growth rates excluding the impact of currency effects.

Adjusted EPS and Adjusted EPS Excluding the Impact of Currency Effects
Adjusted EPS is defined as earnings excluding the impact of amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets per diluted share. The Company believes Adjusted EPS is relevant to investors because this metric allows them to evaluate the performance of the Company's operations exclusive of the non-cash amortization of acquisition-related intangible assets that impact the comparability of results from period to period. Refer to the comments that follow for our methodology for calculating growth rates excluding the impact of currency effects.

Methodology for Calculating Growth Rates Excluding the Impact of Currency Effects
In addition to the Transactions, the impact of exchange rates on our business is an important factor in understanding
period-to-period comparisons of our results. For example, our international revenues are favorably impacted as the U.S. dollar weakens relative to other foreign currencies, and unfavorably impacted as the U.S dollar strengthens relative to other foreign currencies. We believe the presentation of results on a constant currency basis (ex-FX), in addition to results reported in accordance with GAAP provides useful information about our operating performance because the presentation ex-FX excludes the effects of foreign currency volatility and highlights our core operating results. The presentation of results on a constant currency basis should be considered in addition to, but not a substitute for, measures of financial performance reported in accordance with GAAP.

The ex-FX change represents the percentage change on a period-over-period basis adjusted for foreign currency impacts. The ex-FX change is calculated as the difference between the current year amounts translated at a baseline rate, a spot rate for each of our currencies determined early in the fiscal year as part of our forecasting process (the “2018 Baseline Rate”), and the prior year amounts translated at the same 2018 Baseline Rate.


5



In addition, consistent with the assumption of a constant currency environment, our ex-FX results exclude the impact of our foreign currency hedging activities, as well as realized and unrealized foreign currency transaction gains and losses. Results on a constant currency basis, as we present them, may not be comparable to similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Selling, General and Administrative Expense
Selling, general and administrative expense, as presented, excludes mark-to-market based compensation and Scripps Networks transaction and integration costs due to their impact on comparability between periods.

Free Cash Flow
The Company defines free cash flow as cash provided by operating activities less acquisitions of property and equipment. The Company uses free cash flow as it believes it is an important indicator for management and investors of the Company’s liquidity, including its ability to reduce debt, make strategic investments and return capital to stockholders.

Pro Forma Adjustments
The discussion and tables beginning on page 11 compare our actual and pro forma combined results as if the Transactions occurred on January 1, 2017. Management believes reviewing our actual operating results in addition to combined pro forma results is useful in identifying trends in, or reaching conclusions regarding, the overall operating performance of our businesses. Our combined U.S. Networks, International Networks and Corporate and Inter-Segment Eliminations pro forma information is based on the historical operating results of the respective businesses as applicable to each segment and includes adjustments directly attributable to the Transactions as if they had occurred on January 1, 2017, such as:

1. The impact of the purchase price allocation to the fair value of assets, liabilities, and noncontrolling interests, such as intangible amortization;
2. Adjustments to remove items associated with the Transactions that will not have a continuing impact on the combined entity, such as transaction costs and the impact of employee retention agreements; and
3. Changes to align accounting policies.

Adjustments do not include costs related to integration activities, cost savings or synergies that have been or may be achieved by the combined businesses. Pro forma amounts are not necessarily indicative of what our results would have been had we operated the acquired businesses since January 1, 2017, and should not be taken as indicative of the Company's future consolidated results of operations.

Actual amounts for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2018 include the results of operations for the Discovery and Scripps Networks, OWN and MTG businesses for the period since each respective transaction. Scripps Networks was acquired on March 6, 2018, OWN was consolidated on November 30, 2017 and MTG was consolidated on September 25, 2017.

(1) Pro forma is defined as the results of the Company as if the Transactions had occurred on January 1, 2017. Refer to page 6 for full list of adjustments to pro forma results.
(2) Certain updates were made to previously disclosed pro forma adjustments as a result of further information identified after May 10, 2018, the date our March 31, 2018 quarterly report was filed. These changes impact the costs of revenue, depreciation and amortization, and restructuring and other charges line items. The pro forma adjustments disclosed above are inclusive of these updates and therefore many not reconcile to previously disclosed amounts.
(3) Refer to page 5 for our methodology for calculating growth rates excluding the impact of currency effects.
(4) See full definition of Adjusted OIBDA on page 5.
