Forums - General Discussion - Disney Q1 FY22 Results - Disney+ Nearly 130m Subs

The Walt Disney Co. beat Wall Street expectations in its latest quarterly earnings report. The company reported revenue of $21.8 billion and net income of $1.1 billion, with earnings per share of $1.06.

Wall Street expectations were for revenue of $18.78 billion and EPS of $0.58.

The streaming business is where Wall Street is placing much of its focus, and the company updated its efforts in the space Wednesday, with Disney+ adding 11.8 million subscribers last quarter to hit 129.8 million total. Hulu added 6.6 million subscribers to reach 45.3 million subs (likely driven by an aggressive Black Friday offer at a $1 per month rate), and ESPN+ added 4.2 million subscribers to reach 21.3 million.

Average revenue per user (ARPU) improved significantly at Disney+ to $6.68, up 15 percent from a year prior, thanks to fewer wholesale customers.

Still, the company’s quarter was significantly better than the same quarter a year prior, when most parts of the business were still being impacted by the novel coronavirus pandemic.

Theme parks in particular saw a significant turnaround, generating revenue of $7.2 billion, more than double the same quarter a year prior.

Disney’s linear networks had revenue of $7.7 billion, about flat from the same quarter a year ago, with direct-to-consumer rising by 34 percent year over year to $4.7 billion.

Costs at all of the company’s streaming and linear businesses were on the rise, driven by increasing productions costs and sports rights.

I don’t actively follow Disney, what would their profits have been like prior to the pandemic, like 2019?
