11:47 EDTCMCSA, WWEWWE slammed after TV deal fails to impress investors
Shares of WWE (WWE), which organizes professional wrestling matches, are tumbling after the company signed a new TV deal with NBC that will reportedly pay it much less than it had expected. WHAT'S NEW: WWE announced that it had agreed to a multi-year renewal of its TV licensing deal with Comcast's (CMCSA) NBC. WWE did not directly disclose the value of its deal with NBC, but estimated that the average annual value of its key TV deals in the U.S., U.K., Thailand, and India would reach about $200M annually, representing an increase of more than $90M. In a note to investors earlier today, Benchmark analyst Mike Hickey estimated that WWE's fees from NBC would increase around 50%. WWW had previously estimated that the fees from NBC would double or triple, the analyst stated. He downgraded the stock to Hold from Buy and slashed his price target on the name to $19.96 from $29.12. WHAT'S NOTABLE: WWE estimated that its operating income before interest, depreciation and amortization could double or triple from 2012 levels by 2015, reaching $125M-$190M. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, World Wrestling sank $8.30, or 42%, to $11.65.
