Corus Entertainment Announces Fiscal 2013 Fourth Quarter and Year-End Results

(PRNewswire) — Corus Entertainment Inc. (TSX: CJR.B) announced its fourth quarter and year-end financial results today.

"Fiscal 2013 was a challenging year, but we made progress on a number of fronts, creating the foundation for strong growth moving forward," said John Cassaday, President and Chief Executive Officer of Corus Entertainment. "We were pleased to see an increase in specialty advertising revenue across all of our core Television networks, ongoing ratings momentum, and continued gains in our Pay television business. These gains were offset by a decline in the fourth quarter in our Radio division and higher corporate costs. Our outlook for 2014 is positive and the fundamentals are in place for a strong year ahead. The recent reorganization of our leadership team will support our growth objectives and we are excited about the significant value that our pending acquisitions will bring to the business."
