Publishing prints 35.7% profit gain for Televisa

Televisa, the world’s largest Spanish-language TV broadcaster, reported net profits of $ 49.18 million for the second quarter, up 35.7% from the same period last year.

Net sales grew 45.9% to $ 433.65 million and operating profits surged 76% to $ 63.3 million, the company said Thursday.

Televisa reported that sales from its television business — which accounted for 58% of net sales — rose 20.7% in the second quarter.

A substantial portion of the company’s growth of net sales resulted from its publishing business, which represented 17% of net sales.

Sales from publishing grew 843% because of Televisa’s acquisition of Grupo America in July 1992 and the Mexico City daily newspaper Ovaciones in January.

With the $ 130 million acquisition of Grupo America, Televisa became the world’s largest publisher of Spanish-language magazines.

The company also has a $ 200 million half-share in Pan American Satellite Corp., the world’s only privately owned satellite network and has invested in U.S.-based Spanish broadcaster Univision Holdings Inc.

Mexico’s television industry is among the fastest-growing in Latin America, with three national networks, a growing cable industry and the hemisphere’s fastest-growing advertising market.

Televisa controls about 95% of Mexico’s television audience.
