(Bloomberg) -- Jim Dolan is having a bad week, and the Knicks’ season hasn’t even started yet.On Wednesday, MSG Networks Inc., the sports-channel operator where Dolan is executive chairman, said its subscribers shrank by 6.5% last quarter, or more than twice the rate of the broader pay-TV industry. The subscriber losses sent the company’s shares tumbling as much as 14%, their biggest drop ever.David Joyce, an analyst at Evercore ISI, downgraded the stock, citing “dramatic subscriber losses.”“We are incrementally concerned about the subscriber trends and affiliate revenue impacts,” Joyce said in a note to clients.The stock decline came a day after shares of Madison Square Garden Co., a separate live-entertainment company also led by Dolan, had a record decline after it disclosed the steep cost of building a new venue in Las Vegas.Consumers are dropping their cable-TV subscriptions in favor of cheaper online options, threatening the futures of cable-channel owners like MSG Networks that rely on collecting subscriber fees to grow their profits. Sports channels have become especially vulnerable in the era of cord-cutting, as TV distributors create cheaper packages that don’t include them.MSG Networks disclosed the subscriber losses while reporting fourth-quarter revenue and profits that fell short of analysts’ expectations.Four years ago, the Dolans shifted the sports channels, which air New York Knicks and New York Rangers games, into a company separate from those famous sports franchises and venues like Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall.To contact the reporter on this story: Gerry Smith in New York at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Nick Turner at email@example.com, John J.

MSG Networks Inc. shares slid about 13% Wednesday, after the operator of regional sports and entertainment networks posted weaker-than-expected fiscal fourth-quarter earnings. The company, which was spun out of Madison Square Gardens in 2015, said it had net income of $41.2 million, or 54 cents a share, in the quarter to June 30, down from $45.2 million, or 60 cents a share, in the year-earlier period. Revenue fell 3% to $168.4 million. The FactSet consensus was for EPS of 63 cents and revenue of $171 million. Advertising revenue rose by $0.9 million, due to higher sales from the telecast of live professional sports programming, including playoff games, as well as higher sales from branded content. That was partially offset by a lower decline in deferred revenue related to ratings guarantees. Direct operating costs rose 2% to $70.1 million, mostly due to higher rights fees. Selling, general and administrative costs rose 33% to $26.3 million, mostly due to one-time costs, and higher advertising and marketing costs. Shares have fallen 38% in 2019, while the S&P 500 has gained 17%.
MSG Networks (MSGN) delivered earnings and revenue surprises of -11.48% and -2.39%, respectively, for the quarter ended June 2019. Do the numbers hold clues to what lies ahead for the stock?

(Bloomberg) -- Madison Square Garden Co.’s big Las Vegas bet has investors sweating.Shares of the New York live-entertainment company fell their most ever after it disclosed the steep cost of building a new venue in the gambling mecca.The stock fell as much as 9.3% to $266, hitting its lowest mark since January.Investors were jarred by potential cost overruns of a concert and event venue called the Las Vegas Sphere. MSG approved a preliminary construction budget of $1.2 billion, but a contractor estimated the expense would be $1.7 billion.If the actual cost is “somewhere in the middle,” that’s still higher than Wall Street estimates, said David Joyce, an analyst at Evercore ISI.Even $1.2 billion would dwarf the budget of other venues. Las Vegas’s T-Mobile Arena, which opened just down the street in 2016, cost $375 million.MSG plans to open the high-tech Las Vegas venue in 2021. It will host concerts, product launches, award shows and sporting events and feature an interior display the size of three football fields, the company said.Spinoff PlanMeanwhile, MSG, led by Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jim Dolan, is still looking to spin off its pro-sports franchises, including the New York Knicks and New York Rangers, believing it can wring more value from the iconic teams if they’re an independent business.The proposal would split off the sports teams from MSG’s live-entertainment operations, which would keep famous venues such as Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall, as well as a hospitality group, a music festival producer and about $1 billion in cash.On Tuesday, the company said the spinoff process “is taking longer than expected” and it was committed to completing it in the first quarter of 2020.The high construction costs in Las Vegas and the additional waiting period for the spinoff are likely to weigh on the company’s shares, Joyce said.MSG shares are now roughly flat this year, compared with a 16% gain for the S&P 500 Index.To contact the reporter on this story: Gerry Smith in New York at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Nick Turner at email@example.com, John J.

Madison Square Garden Co. reported Tuesday a wider fiscal fourth-quarter loss and revenue that fell more than expected, amid weakness in its MSG Sports business. The stock was still inactive in premarket trading. The net loss for the quarter to June 30 was $73.2 million, or $3.08 a share, after a loss of $46.1 million, or $1.94 a share, in the same period a year ago. The FactSet consensus for net EPS was $2.71. Revenue fell 17% to $263.6 million, below the FactSet consensus of $270.1 million. MSG Entertainment revenue slipped 6% to $174.0 million, above the FactSet consensus of $172.5 million, and MSG Sports revenue dropped 32% to $90.0 million to miss expectations of $102.1 million. MSG said the decrease in revenue was primarily due to the impact of ASC Topic 606, a new accounting standard for revenue from contracts with customers, partially offset by higher event-related revenue from other live sporting events. "Looking ahead, we remain confident in the strength of our core businesses and expect fiscal 2020 to be an important year as we work to complete the proposed sports spin-off and begin to usher in the company's next chapter, with MSG Sphere in Las Vegas starting to take shape," said Chief Executive James Dolan. The stock has gained 9.6% year to date, while the S&P 500 has rallied 16.6%.
