The operating segment income margin is calculated as a percentage of segment net sales.

Net sales decreased by 7.8% to Ps.22,407.2 million in second-quarter 2020 compared with Ps.24,307.6 million in second-quarter 2019. This decrease was mainly attributable to a decline in Advertising sales and in Other Businesses. Operating segment income decreased by 12.4% to Ps.8,636.3 million with a margin of 35.8%, due to the decline in operating segment income of Content and Other Businesses segments.

Net income attributable to stockholders of the Company increased to Ps.1,739.5 million in second-quarter 2020 compared to Ps.919.1 million in second-quarter 2019.

The net increase of Ps.820.4 million reflected:

i.
a Ps.2,179.6 million decrease in finance expense, net; and
ii.
a Ps.94.4 million decrease in net income attributable to non-controlling interests.

These favorable variances were partially offset by:

i.
a Ps.1,251.4 million decrease in operating income before depreciation and amortization and other expense, net;
ii.
a Ps.154.9 million increase in depreciation and amortization;
iii.
a Ps.10.5 million increase in other expense, net;
iv.
a Ps.26.2 million decrease in share of income of associates and joint ventures, net; and
v.
a Ps.10.6 million increase in income taxes.

Cable

Total net additions for the quarter were approximately 494.1 thousand RGUs. Quarterly growth was mainly driven by record broadband net additions of 252.2 thousand and voice net additions of 214.5 thousand. Video net additions increased by 27.4 thousand. The following table sets forth the breakdown of RGUs per service type for our Cable segment as of June 30, 2020 and 2019.

Second-quarter sales increased by 10.7% to Ps.11,308.8 million compared with Ps.10,215.7 million in second-quarter 2019 driven by solid net additions in broadband and voice.

Second-quarter operating segment income increased by 4.1% to Ps.4,656.5 million compared with Ps.4,473.7 million in second-quarter 2019. Margin decreased by 260 basis points to 41.2% due to a number of reasons, such as strong growth in our lower-margin packages that are bundled with OTT services, promotions around fixed line portability, and promotions to drive a higher adoption of automatic recurring payments.

The following tables set forth the breakdown of revenues and operating segment income, excluding consolidation adjustments, for our MSO and enterprise operations for second-quarter 2020 and 2019.

Advertising

Second-quarter Advertising sales decreased by 33.1% to Ps.2,922.2 million compared with Ps.4,370.3 million in second-quarter 2019. The decrease in sales is explained by a significant deterioration in the Mexican economy due to COVID-19 that resulted in a reduction of advertising budgets in many categories, such as Food and Beverage, Retail, Telecom, Travel, and Out-of-Home Entertainment.

Network Subscription

Second-quarter Network Subscription sales increased by 16.1% to Ps.1,400.7 million compared with Ps.1,206.0 million in second-quarter 2019. This growth is mainly related to the increase in the price we charge our affiliate distributors for our pay TV networks and to the favorable impact of the depreciation of the Mexican peso on our dollar-denominated revenues.



5

Licensing and Syndication

Second-quarter Licensing and Syndication sales decreased by 2.3% to Ps.2,417.7 million from Ps.2,473.7 million in second-quarter 2019. We estimate that royalties from Univision reached U.S.$79.7 million in second-quarter 2020 compared to U.S.$99.6 million in second-quarter 2019. This decrease in royalties is mainly explained by the impact that COVID-19 had in advertising budgets in the US. The depreciation of the Mexican peso partially compensated the decrease in royalties.

Second-quarter operating segment income decreased by 28.9% to Ps.2,080.8 million compared with Ps.2,928.3 million in second-quarter 2019. This decrease is mainly explained by the drop in advertising sales. The margin was 30.9%.


Other Businesses

Second-quarter sales decreased by 67.1% to Ps.567.1 million compared with Ps.1,725.7 million in second-quarter 2019. The decrease is mainly explained by a decline in revenues in our soccer, gaming, publishing and film distribution businesses due to the measures triggered by the outbreak of COVID-19, which included the suspension of activities in some businesses of this segment, including gaming and sports.

Second-quarter operating segment loss was Ps.422.4 million compared with an income of Ps.148.8 million in second-quarter 2019.

Corporate Expense

Corporate expense decreased by Ps.73.2 million, or 16.7%, to Ps.366.0 million in second-quarter 2020, from Ps.439.2 million in second-quarter 2019. The decrease reflected primarily a lower share-based compensation expense.

Share-based compensation expense in second-quarter 2020 and 2019 amounted to Ps.193.9 million and Ps.251.8 million, respectively, and was accounted for as corporate expense. Share-based compensation expense is measured at fair value at the time the equity benefits are conditionally sold to officers and employees, and is recognized over the vesting period.

Other Expense, Net

Other expense, net, increased by Ps.10.5 million, or 3.7%, to Ps.293.5 million in second-quarter 2020, from Ps.283.0 million in second-quarter 2019. The favorable change in cash Other expense, net, reflected primarily a one-time cash reimbursement in connection to Imagina Media Audiovisual, S.L., a former associate of the Company, partially offset by higher non-recurring severance expenses, and higher expenses related to legal and financial advisory professional services.

The increase in non-cash Other expense, net, reflected primarily a higher loss on disposition of property and equipment.

Finance expense, net, decreased by Ps.2,179.6 million, to Ps.88.9 million in second-quarter 2020 from Ps.2,268.5 million in second-quarter 2019.

This favorable change reflected primarily:

(i)
a Ps.2,026.2 million increase in foreign exchange gain, net, resulting primarily from the favorable effect of a 3.5% appreciation of the Mexican peso against the U.S. dollar in second-quarter 2020 compared with a 1.2% appreciation in second-quarter 2019, on a higher average net U.S. dollar liability position;

(ii)
a Ps.359.4 million decrease in other finance expense, net, resulting from a lower loss in fair value of our derivative contracts in second-quarter 2020; and

(iii)
a Ps.102.8 million increase in interest income explained primarily by a higher average amount of cash and cash equivalents in second-quarter 2020.

These favorable variances were partially offset by a Ps.308.8 million increase in interest expense, primarily due to a higher average principal amount of debt in second-quarter 2020.

7

Share of Income of Associates and Joint Ventures, Net

Share of income of associates and joint ventures, net, decreased by Ps.26.2 million, or 16.0%, to Ps.137.6 million in second-quarter 2020 from Ps.163.8 million in second-quarter 2019. This decrease reflected mainly a lower share of the estimated income of Univision Holdings, Inc. (“UHI”), the controlling company of Univision Communications Inc., which was partially offset by a higher share of income of Ocesa Entretenimiento, S.A. de C.V. (“OCEN”), a live entertainment company in Mexico, Central America and Colombia, primarily in connection with a share of income related to the period in which we classified OCEN as a current asset held for sale.

Share of income of associates and joint ventures, net, for the second-quarter 2020, includes primarily our share of income of UHI and OCEN.

Income Taxes

Income taxes increased by Ps.10.6 million, or 1.4%, to Ps.752.5 million in second-quarter 2020 compared with Ps.741.9 million in second-quarter 2019. This increase reflected a higher income tax base, primarily in connection with the appreciation of the Mexican peso against the U.S. dollar in second-quarter 2020, which effect was offset by a lower effective income tax rate.

Net Income Attributable to Non-controlling Interests

Net income attributable to non-controlling interests decreased by Ps.94.4 million, or 27.4%, to Ps.249.9 million in second-quarter 2020, compared with Ps.344.3 million in second-quarter 2019. This decrease reflected primarily a lower portion of net income attributable to non-controlling interests in our Sky segment.

Capital Expenditures

During second-quarter 2020, we invested approximately U.S.$196.4 million in property, plant and equipment as capital expenditures. The following table sets forth the breakdown by segment of capital expenditures for second-quarter 2020 and 2019.

Radiópolis

On July 2, 2020, we concluded the sale of our 50% equity stake in Sistema Radiópolis, S.A. de C.V. (“Radiópolis”) in the amount of Ps.1,248 million, of which Ps.713.4 million were paid in cash by the acquirer in the first half of 2020, and received the payment of a dividend from Radiópolis in the amount of Ps.285.6 million.

Shares Outstanding

As of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, our shares outstanding amounted to 329,940.8 million and 337,244.3 million shares, respectively, and our CPO equivalents outstanding amounted to 2,820.0 million and 2,882.4 million CPO equivalents, respectively. Not all of our shares are in the form of CPOs. The number of CPO equivalents is calculated by dividing the number of shares outstanding by 117.

As of June 30, 2020 and December 31, 2019, the GDS (Global Depositary Shares) equivalents outstanding amounted to 564.0 million and 576.5 million GDS equivalents, respectively. The number of GDS equivalents is calculated by dividing the number of CPO equivalents by five.

Sustainability

During second quarter 2020, the Organization of American States extended its recognition to Televisa for implementing a social responsibility campaign due to the contingency derived from the COVID-19 outbreak.

In addition, the Company was selected as a constituent of the S&P/BMV Total Mexico ESG Index, recently launched by S&P Dow Jones and the Mexican Stock Exchange.

Furthermore, Televisa was nominated by the 2020 Latin American Sustainable Leaders Agenda (ALAS20) initiative as "Leading Company in Sustainability" and "Leading Company in Corporate Governance”.


COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected our business, financial position and results of operations for the quarter ended June 30, 2020, and it is currently difficult to predict the degree of the impact on the third quarter and the remainder of 2020.

We cannot guarantee that conditions in the bank lending, capital and other financial markets will not continue to deteriorate as a result of the pandemic, or that our access to capital and other sources of funding will not become constrained, which could adversely affect the availability and terms of future borrowings, renewals or refinancings. In addition, the deterioration of global economic conditions as a result of the pandemic may ultimately reduce the demand of our products across our segments as our clients and customers reduce or defer their spending.

While the pandemic has evolved and some parts of Mexico have started to resume activities partially, a significant part of the population is still implementing social distancing and shelter-in-place policies. As a result, during the quarter ended June 30, 2020, this has affected, and is still affecting the ability of our employees, suppliers and customers to conduct their functions and businesses in their typical manner. The Mexican Government has established a plan to reactivate economic activities in accordance with color-based phases determined on a weekly basis in every state of the country. To this date, most of the country’s states are on phase red or orange, meaning most of non-essential economic activities remain closed or, in the case of orange, open with strict limitations. Furthermore, federal and local governments have also established guidelines for businesses re-openings, which may be burdensome or expensive to implement.  Media and telecommunications are not included in the suspension as they are considered essential economic activities. We have continued operating our essential businesses uninterrupted to continue benefiting the country with connectivity, entertainment and information, while also promoting the “stay at home” policy whenever possible, in order to take safety and cautionary measures for our employees. To date, our "Stay at home with Televisa" campaign, which promotes serenity, entertainment and social cohesion among audiences and brands, has reached 46 million people.

As described above, our Content business faced a significant reduction in the demand for advertising during the quarter ended June 30, 2020 and may continue to be affected by the reduction in the level of economic activity in the jurisdictions in which our customers are located. We are partially dependent on the demand for advertising from consumer-focused companies, and the COVID-19 pandemic has caused, and could further cause, advertisers to reduce, postpone or, in a few cases, eliminate their advertisement spending on our platforms. We have recently re-started our production of new content following the requirements and health guidelines imposed by the Mexican Government.

In our Other Businesses segment, sporting and other entertainment events for which we have broadcast rights, or which we organize, promote and/or are located in venues we own, were suspended for most of the quarter ended June 30, 2020, but some of them have recently started to operate again. Moreover, during the quarter ended June 30, 2020, most of our non-essential businesses, including casinos, were closed. When local authorities start to approve the re-opening of these venues in the cities where we operate, rules will be enacted which may include capacity and operating hours restrictions; these may affect the results of our Other Businesses segment in the following months.  As of this date, just one of our casinos has re-started operations.

The magnitude of the impact on our business will depend on the duration and extent of the COVID-19 pandemic and the impact of federal, state, local and foreign governmental actions, including continued or future social distancing, and consumer behavior in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and such governmental actions. Due to the evolving and uncertain nature of this situation, we are not able to estimate the full extent of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, but it may continue affecting our business, financial position and results of operations over the near, medium or long-term.
