• WWE’s Net Income Drops 83%

WWE’s third quarter report came out today and WWE’s net income dropped by 83%. Tony Maglio of The Wrap has the following explanation for this drop in income:

“WWE Network had 1.51 million average paid subscribers in #Q3, down 9% from the prior year.

That 20,000 fewer than management expected. WWE now expects a decline to 1.43 million in Q4, which would be a 10% drop year over year.

I charted every quarter of #WWENetwork’s average paid subscribers since in launched in Feb. 2014 here if you wanna see that WWE’s net income dropped 83% from last #Q3 to this one. That’s due to performance and fewer tax benefits.

That’s a big number on a percentage basis, but we’re dealing w/ relatively light income to begin with ($33.6 million to $5.8 million), which makes it look so dramatic.”
