AMC reported full year revenues of $2.581 billion.
The Mad Men producer bought 49% of the international entertainment network in 2014. However, the greater contribution came from increased advertising revenues that sat alongside new original programming.
President and chief executive officer Josh Sapan said: “2015 was a successful year for our company. Our strategy of creating compelling original, high-quality programming continues to deliver strong financial results, including double-digit increases in revenue and adjusted operating cash flow. We premiered three new AMC original series, Fear the Walking Dead, Better Call Saul and Into the Badlands, all of which broke ratings records. We received widespread critical praise and industry honors for our television and film content. We continued to build and expand our international business into key markets across Europe and Latin America.”
Fourth quarter net revenues increased 11.4%, or $70 million, to $679 million over the fourth quarter of 2014.
International and Other revenues for the fourth quarter of 2015 increased $9 million to $119 million, but lost $6 million over 2015 as a whole.
