(1) 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.

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.
