AMC NETWORKS INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Dollars in thousands, except per share amounts)
(unaudited)


Note 1. Description of Business and Basis of Presentation
Description of Business
AMC Networks Inc. (“AMC Networks”) and collectively with its subsidiaries (the “Company”) own and operate entertainment businesses and assets.
As of March 31, 2014, following the Chellomedia acquisition on January 31, 2014 (see Note 2), the manner in which the President and Chief Executive Officer, who is the chief operating decision maker, evaluates performance and makes decisions about how to allocate resources changed, resulting in the reorganization of the Company's operating segments. The National Networks operating segment now includes the results of AMC and Sundance Channel in Canada and AMC Networks Broadcasting & Technology, the Company's network technical services business, which primarily services the nationally distributed programming networks of the Company. Previously, the results of these operations were included in the International and Other operating segment. The results of AMC Networks International (formerly Chellomedia and AMC/Sundance Channel Global) are included in the International and Other operating segment. Operating segment information for the prior period has been recast to reflect these changes.
The Company is comprised of two operating segments:
National Networks: Principally includes four nationally distributed programming networks: AMC, WE tv, IFC and SundanceTV. These programming networks are distributed throughout the United States (“U.S.”) via cable and other multichannel video programming distribution platforms, including direct broadcast satellite (“DBS”) and platforms operated by telecommunications providers (we refer collectively to these cable and other multichannel video programming distributors as “multichannel video programming distributors” or “distributors”). AMC, IFC and SundanceTV are also distributed in Canada. The National Networks operating segment also includes AMC Networks Broadcasting & Technology.
International and Other: Principally includes AMC Networks International (formerly Chellomedia and AMC/Sundance Channel Global), the Company’s international programming businesses; IFC Films, the Company’s independent film distribution business; AMC Networks International - DMC (formerly Chello DMC), the broadcast solutions unit of certain networks of AMC Networks International; and various developing on-line content distribution initiatives. AMC Networks International consists of a portfolio of programming networks in Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and parts of Asia and Africa.
Basis of Presentation
Principles of Consolidation
These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of AMC Networks and its majority-owned subsidiaries in which a controlling interest is maintained. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.
These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) and Article 10 of Regulation S-X of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for interim financial information. Accordingly, these unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include all the information and notes required for complete annual financial statements.
These unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited condensed consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the year ended December 31, 2013 contained in the Company’s 2013 Annual Report on Form 10-K (“2013 Form 10-K”) filed with the SEC.
The condensed consolidated financial statements as of June 30, 2014 and for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 are unaudited; however, in the opinion of management, such condensed consolidated financial statements include all adjustments, consisting solely of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of the results for the periods presented.
The results of operations for the interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results that might be expected for future interim periods or for the full year ending December 31, 2014.

AMC NETWORKS INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (Continued)
(Dollars in thousands, except per share amounts)
(unaudited)

Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reported period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates and judgments inherent in the preparation of the condensed consolidated financial statements include the valuation of acquisition-related assets and liabilities, the useful lives and methodologies used to amortize and assess recoverability of program rights, the estimated useful lives of intangible assets, valuation and recoverability of goodwill and long-lived intangible assets and income taxes.
Discontinued Operations
In connection with the acquisition of Chellomedia (see Note 2), management committed to a plan to dispose of the operations of Chellomedia's advertising sales unit, Atmedia. Accordingly, the assets and liabilities of Atmedia are classified as held for sale in the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2014 and the operating results have been classified as discontinued operations in the condensed consolidated statements of income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 (see Note 4).
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
In April 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2014-08, Presentation of Financial Statements (Topic 205) and Property, Plant, and Equipment (Topic 360): Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity (ASU 2014-08). ASU 2014-08 defines a discontinued operation as a disposal of a component or group of components that is disposed of or is classified as held for sale and “represents a strategic shift that has (or will have) a major effect on an entity’s operations and financial results.” The standard states that a strategic shift could include a disposal of (i) a major geographical area of operations, (ii) a major line of business, (iii) a major equity method investment, or (iv) other major parts of an entity. Although “major” is not defined, the standard provides examples of when a disposal qualifies as a discontinued operation. An entity is required to present in the statement of cash flows or disclose in a note either (i) total operating and investing cash flows for discontinued operations, or (ii) depreciation, amortization, capital expenditures, and significant operating and investing noncash items related to discontinued operations. Additional disclosures are required when an entity retains significant continuing involvement with a discontinued operation after its disposal, including the amount of cash flows to and from a discontinued operation. ASU 2014-08 is effective in the first quarter of 2015 and early adoption is permitted. The adoption of ASU 2014-08 is not expected to have a material effect on the Company's consolidated financial statements.
In May 2014, the FASB and International Accounting Standards Board ("IASB") issued ASU No. 2014-09, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606). ASU 2014-09 provides new guidance related to how an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The standard requires an evaluation of (i) transfer of control, (ii) variable consideration, (iii) allocation of selling price for multiple elements, (iv) intellectual property licenses, (v) time value of money and (vi) contract costs. The standard also expands the required disclosures related to revenue and cash flows from contracts with customers to provide greater insight into both revenue that has been recognized, and revenue that is expected to be recognized in the future from existing contracts. ASU 2014-09 is effective in the first quarter of 2017 and can be adopted either retrospectively to each prior reporting period presented or as a cumulative-effect adjustment as of the date of adoption, with early application not permitted. The Company is currently determining its implementation approach and assessing the impact on the consolidated financial statements.
In June 2014, the FASB and IASB issued ASU No. 2014-12, Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Accounting for Share-Based Payments When the Terms of an Award Provide That a Performance Target Could Be Achieved after the Requisite Service Period. The ASU clarifies that entities should treat performance targets that can be met after the requisite service period of a share-based payment award as performance conditions that affect vesting. Therefore, an entity would not record compensation expense (measured as of the grant date without taking into account the effect of the performance target) related to an award for which transfer to the employee is contingent on the entity’s satisfaction of a performance target until it becomes probable that the performance target will be met. No new disclosures are required. ASU 2014-12 is effective in the first quarter of 2015 and early adoption is permitted. The adoption of ASU 2014-12 is not expected to have a material effect on the Company's consolidated financial statements.

On January 31, 2014, certain subsidiaries of AMC Networks purchased substantially all of Chellomedia (a combination of certain programming and content distribution subsidiaries and assets purchased from Liberty Global plc) for a purchase price of €750 million (approximately $1.0 billion), subject to adjustments for working capital, cash, and indebtedness acquired and for the

(unaudited)

purchase of certain equity method investments. AMC Networks funded the purchase price with cash on hand and also borrowed an additional of $600 million under its term loan A facility (see Note 8).
The acquisition provides AMC Networks with television channels that are distributed to more than 390 million subscribers in over 130 countries and span a wide range of programming genres, most notably movie and entertainment networks. The acquisition of Chellomedia's operating businesses include: Chello Central Europe, Chello Latin America, Chello Multicanal, Chello Zone, Chello DMC (the broadcast solutions unit), and Atmedia (the advertising sales unit). The acquisition provides the Company with the opportunity to accelerate and enhance its international expansion strategy. The Company views this international opportunity as one that has the potential to provide long-term growth and value.
We have accounted for the acquisition of Chellomedia using the acquisition method of accounting, whereby the total purchase price was allocated to the acquired identifiable net assets of Chellomedia based on assessments of their estimated respective fair values, and the excess of the purchase price over the fair values of these identifiable net assets was allocated to goodwill and represents primarily the potential economic benefits that the Company believes may arise from its international expansion strategy. The goodwill associated with the Chellomedia acquisition is generally not deductible for tax purposes.
The acquisition accounting for Chellomedia as reflected in these condensed consolidated financial statements is preliminary and based on current estimates and currently available information, and is subject to revision based on final determinations of fair value and final allocations of purchase price to the identifiable assets and liabilities acquired. The primary estimated fair values that are not yet finalized relate to the valuation of intangible assets, property and equipment, noncontrolling interests acquired and income taxes.
The following table summarizes the preliminary allocation of the purchase price to the tangible and identifiable intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed. The excess of the purchase price over those fair values was allocated to goodwill.

Revenues and operating income attributable to Chellomedia of $167,470 and $21,858, respectively (excluding the discontinued operations of Chellomedia's advertising sales unit, Atmedia), are included in the condensed consolidated statement of income from the acquisition date, January 31, 2014 to June 30, 2014. Acquisition related costs of $14,139 (of which, $1,853 are included in the operating results of Chellomedia from the acquisition date to June 30, 2014) were incurred during the six months ended June 30, 2014 and are included in selling, general and administrative expense.
Note 3. Net Income per Share
The condensed consolidated statements of income present basic and diluted net income per share (“EPS”). Basic EPS is based upon net income divided by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted EPS reflects the dilutive effects of AMC Networks stock options (including those held by directors and employees of related parties of the Company) and AMC Networks restricted shares/units (including those held by employees of related parties of the Company).
The following is a reconciliation between basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding:

Note 4. Discontinued Operations
In connection with the acquisition of Chellomedia (see Note 2), management committed to a plan to dispose of the operations of Chellomedia's advertising sales unit, Atmedia. Accordingly, the assets and liabilities of Atmedia are classified as held for sale in the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2014 and the operating results have been classified as discontinued operations in the condensed consolidated statement of income from the acquisition date, January 31, 2014 to June 30, 2014.

The increase in the carrying amount of goodwill for the International and Other operating segment relates to the acquisition of Chellomedia (see Note 2).
The reduction of $1,278 in the carrying amount of goodwill for the National Networks is due to the realization of a tax benefit for the amortization of "second component" goodwill at SundanceTV. Second component goodwill is the amount of tax deductible goodwill in excess of goodwill for financial reporting purposes. In accordance with the authoritative guidance at the time of the SundanceTV acquisition, the tax benefits associated with this excess are applied to first reduce the amount of goodwill, and then other intangible assets for financial reporting purposes, if and when such tax benefits are realized in the Company's tax returns.

Annual Impairment Test of Goodwill
Based on the Company’s annual impairment test for goodwill as of the end of February 2014, no impairment charge was required for any of the reporting units. The Company performed a qualitative assessment for each reporting unit. The qualitative assessment included, but was not limited to, consideration of the historical significant excesses of the estimated fair value of each reporting unit over its respective carrying value (including allocated goodwill), macroeconomic conditions, industry and market considerations, cost factors and historical and projected cash flows.
In assessing the recoverability of goodwill, the Company must make assumptions regarding estimated future cash flows and other factors to determine the fair value of the respective assets. These estimates and assumptions could have a significant impact on whether an impairment charge is recognized and also the magnitude of any such charge. Fair value estimates are made at a specific point in time, based on relevant information. These estimates are subjective in nature and involve uncertainties and matters of significant judgments and therefore cannot be determined with precision. Changes in assumptions could significantly affect the estimates. Estimates of fair value for goodwill impairment testing are primarily determined using discounted cash flows and comparable market transactions methods. These valuation methods are based on estimates and assumptions including projected future cash flows, discount rate and determination of appropriate market comparables and determination of whether a premium or discount should be applied to comparables. Projected future cash flows also include assumptions for renewals of affiliation agreements, the projected number of subscribers and the projected average rates per basic and viewing subscribers and growth in fixed price contractual arrangements used to determine affiliation fee revenue, access to program rights and the cost of such program rights, amount of programming time that is advertiser supported, number of advertising spots available and the sell through rates for those spots, average fee per advertising spot and operating margins, among other assumptions. If these estimates or material related assumptions change in the future, we may be required to record impairment charges related to goodwill.
Annual Impairment Test of Identifiable Indefinite-Lived Intangible Assets
Based on the Company's annual impairment test for identifiable indefinite-lived intangible assets as of the end of February 2014, no impairment charge was required. The Company’s indefinite-lived intangible assets relate to SundanceTV trademarks, which were valued using a relief-from-royalty method in which the expected benefits are valued by discounting estimated royalty revenue over projected revenues covered by the trademarks. In order to evaluate the sensitivity of the fair value calculations for the Company’s identifiable indefinite-lived intangible assets, the Company applied a hypothetical 20% decrease to the estimated fair value of the identifiable indefinite-lived intangible assets. This hypothetical decrease in estimated fair value would not result in an impairment.
Significant judgments inherent in estimating the fair value of indefinite-lived intangible assets include the selection of appropriate discount and royalty rates, estimating the amount and timing of estimated future cash flows and identification of appropriate continuing growth rate assumptions. The discount rates used in the analysis are intended to reflect the risk inherent in the projected future cash flows generated by the respective intangible assets.

The Company’s $500,000 revolving credit facility remains undrawn at June 30, 2014. Total undrawn revolver commitments are available to be drawn for general corporate purposes of the Company.
Amended and Restated Senior Secured Credit Facility
On December 16, 2013 (the “Refinancing Date”), AMC Networks and its subsidiary, AMC Network Entertainment LLC (the “Borrowers”), and certain of AMC Networks’ subsidiaries, as restricted subsidiaries, entered into an amended and restated credit agreement, which amended and restated AMC Networks’ prior credit agreement dated June 30, 2011 in its entirety.
The amended and restated credit agreement provides the Borrowers with senior secured credit facilities consisting of (a) an initial $880,000 term loan A that was used by AMC Networks to retire the then outstanding term loan A facility provided under the June 30, 2011 original credit agreement, plus a subsequent $600,000 term loan A (collectively, the “Term Loan A Facility”) which was drawn on January 31, 2014 upon the satisfaction of certain conditions related to consummation of AMC Networks’ acquisition of substantially all of Chellomedia (see Note 2), and (b) a $500,000 revolving credit facility (together with the Term Loan A Facility, collectively, the “Credit Facility”). The Term Loan A Facility matures on December 16, 2019. The revolving credit facility matures on December 16, 2018.
In connection with the subsequent $600,000 term loan A facility, AMC Networks incurred deferred financing costs of $9,266 in 2014, which is amortized to interest expense, utilizing the effective interest method.

Note 9. Fair Value Measurement
The fair value hierarchy is based on inputs to valuation techniques that are used to measure fair value that are either observable or unobservable. Observable inputs reflect assumptions market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability based on market data obtained from independent sources while unobservable inputs reflect a reporting entity’s pricing based upon their own market assumptions. The fair value hierarchy consists of the following three levels:
Level I - Quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets.
Level II - Quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and model-derived valuations whose inputs are observable or whose significant value drivers are observable.
Level III - Instruments whose significant value drivers are unobservable.
 The following table presents for each of these hierarchy levels, the Company’s financial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis:

(a)
Represents the Company’s investment in funds that invest primarily in money market securities.
The Company’s cash equivalents represents investment in funds that invest primarily in money market securities and are classified within Level I of the fair value hierarchy because they are valued using quoted market prices.
The Company’s interest rate swap contracts and foreign currency contracts (see Note 10 below) are classified within Level II of the fair value hierarchy and their fair values are determined based on a market approach valuation technique that uses readily observable market parameters and the consideration of counterparty risk.
Fair value measurements are also used in nonrecurring valuations performed in connection with acquisition accounting. These nonrecurring valuations primarily include the valuation of affiliate and customer relationships intangible assets and property and equipment. With the exception of certain inputs for our weighted average cost of capital and discount rate calculations that are derived from pricing services, the inputs used in the Company’s discounted cash flow analyses, such as forecasts of future cash flows, are based on assumptions. The valuation of affiliate and customer relationships is primarily based on an excess earnings methodology, which is a form of a discounted cash flow analysis. The excess earnings methodology requires us to estimate the specific cash flows expected from the affiliate and customer relationships, considering such factors as estimated life of the relationships and the revenue expected to be generated over the life of such relationships. Tangible assets are typically valued using a replacement or reproduction cost approach, considering factors such as current prices of the same or similar equipment, the age of the equipment and economic obsolescence. All of our nonrecurring valuations use significant unobservable inputs and therefore fall under Level III of the fair value hierarchy.

Fair value estimates related to the Company’s debt instruments presented above are made at a specific point in time, based on relevant market information and information about the financial instrument. These estimates are subjective in nature and involve uncertainties and matters of significant judgments and therefore cannot be determined with precision. Changes in assumptions could significantly affect the estimates.
Note 10. Derivative Financial Instruments
Interest Rate Risk
To manage interest rate risk, the Company enters into interest rate swap contracts to adjust the amount of total debt that is subject to variable interest rates. Such contracts effectively fix the borrowing rates on floating rate debt to limit the exposure against the risk of rising interest rates. The Company does not enter into interest rate swap contracts for speculative or trading purposes and it has only entered into interest rate swap contracts with financial institutions that it believes are creditworthy counterparties. The Company monitors the financial institutions that are counterparties to its interest rate swap contracts and to the extent possible diversifies its swap contracts among various counterparties to mitigate exposure to any single financial institution.
The Company’s risk management objective and strategy with respect to interest rate swap contracts is to protect the Company against adverse fluctuations in interest rates by reducing its exposure to variability in cash flows relating to interest payments on a portion of its outstanding debt. The Company is meeting its objective by hedging the risk of changes in its cash flows (interest payments) attributable to changes in the LIBOR index rate, the designated benchmark interest rate being hedged (the “hedged risk”), on an amount of the Company’s debt principal equal to the then-outstanding swap notional. The forecasted interest payments are deemed to be probable of occurring.
The Company assesses, both at the hedge’s inception and on an ongoing basis, hedge effectiveness based on the overall changes in the fair value of the interest rate swap contracts. Hedge effectiveness of the interest rate swap contracts is based on a hypothetical derivative methodology. Any ineffective portion of the interest rate swap contracts is recorded in current-period earnings. Changes in fair value of interest rate swap contracts not designated as hedging instruments are recognized in earnings and included in interest expense.

As of June 30, 2014, the Company had interest rate swap contracts outstanding with notional amounts aggregating $657,875, which consists of interest rate swap contracts with notional amounts of $457,875 that are designated as cash flow hedges and interest rate swap contracts with notional amounts of $200,000 that are not designated as hedging instruments. The Company’s outstanding interest rate swap contracts have varying maturities ranging from September 2015 to July 2017. At June 30, 2014, the Company’s interest rate swap contracts designated as cash flow hedges were highly effective, in all material respects.
Foreign Currency Exchange Rate Risk
To manage foreign currency exchange rate risk, the Company enters into foreign currency contracts from time to time with financial institutions to limit the exposure to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. The Company does not enter into foreign currency contracts for speculative or trading purposes.
Historically, the Company's exposure to foreign currency fluctuations has been limited to certain trade receivables from the distribution of our programming in certain territories outside of the U.S. that are denominated in a foreign currency. During 2013, in order to mitigate the foreign currency exchange rate risk in fluctuations in the euro denominated purchase price of Chellomedia, the Company purchased euros and entered into foreign currency option contracts. At December 31, 2013, cash and cash equivalents included €250,000 and prepaid expense and other current assets included $2,577 representing the fair value of foreign currency option contracts with notional amounts aggregating €125,000. Prior to their expiration, and in connection with the purchase of Chellomedia on January 31, 2014, the Company settled these foreign currency option contracts with the counterparties resulting in a realized loss of $1,754 included in miscellaneous, net in the condensed consolidated statement of income for the six months ended June 30, 2014.
In connection with the acquisition of Chellomedia, the Company acquired certain contracts that are settled in currencies other than the functional or local currencies of the contracting parties.  Accordingly, these contracts consist of the underlying operational contract and an embedded foreign currency derivative element.  Hedge accounting is not applied to the embedded foreign currency derivative element and changes in their fair values are included in miscellaneous, net in the condensed consolidated statement of income.
The fair values of the Company’s derivative financial instruments included in the condensed consolidated balance sheets are as follows:

Note 12. Income Taxes
For the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, income tax expense attributable to continuing operations was $36,559 and $75,664, respectively, representing an effective tax rate of 38% and 36%, respectively. The effective tax rate differs from the federal statutory rate of 35% due to state and local income tax expense of $1,914 and $3,803, tax benefit from foreign subsidiary earnings indefinitely reinvested outside of the U.S. of $3,303 and $7,190, tax expense of $3,090 and $6,424 relating to uncertain tax positions (including accrued interest), tax benefit from the domestic production activities deduction of $2,647 and $5,424, tax expense of $2,512 and $3,159 resulting from an increase in the valuation allowances for foreign and local taxes partially offset by a decrease in the valuation allowance for foreign tax credits and tax expense of $1,134 and $2,151 for the effect of acquisition costs and other items for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014.
For the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, income tax expense attributable to continuing operations was $83,850 and $120,499, respectively, representing an effective tax rate of 38% for both periods. The effective tax rate differs from the federal statutory rate of 35% due primarily to state and local income tax expense of $4,687 and $6,709, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, tax expense of $2,334 resulting from an increase in the valuation allowance with regard to foreign tax credit carry forwards for both the three and six months ended June 30, 2013, partially offset by a tax benefit of $1,027 related to uncertain tax positions, including accrued interest, for the three months ended June 30, 2013.
At June 30, 2014, the Company had foreign tax credit carry forwards of approximately $30,000, expiring on various dates from 2014 through 2024. For the six months ended June 30, 2014, excess tax benefits of $4,708 relating to share-based compensation awards and $807 relating to amortization of tax deductible second component goodwill were realized as a reduction in tax liability (as determined on a 'with-and-without' approach).
The City of New York is currently auditing the Company's Unincorporated Business Tax Return for 2008 through 2011. The Internal Revenue Service is currently auditing the Company's U.S. Corporation Income Tax Return for 2011. Under the Company's Tax Disaffiliation Agreement with Cablevision Systems Corporation ("Cablevision"), Cablevision is liable for all income taxes of the Company for periods prior to the Distribution except for New York City Unincorporated Business Tax.
Note 13. Commitments
As of June 30, 2014, the Company’s contractual obligations not reflected on the Company’s condensed consolidated balance sheet increased approximately $213,758 to approximately $542,997 as compared to approximately $329,239 at December 31, 2013. The increase relates primarily to purchase obligations at AMC Networks International, including approximately $104,546 and $68,188 for program rights and transmission obligations, respectively.

Note 14. Equity Plans
On March 7, 2014, AMC Networks granted 472,445 restricted stock units to certain executive officers and employees under the AMC Networks Inc. Amended and Restated 2011 Employee Stock Plan. 403,940 of such restricted stock units vest on the third anniversary of the grant date and 68,505 of such restricted stock units vest in equal annual installments over a three-year period. The vesting criteria for 121,944 restricted stock units include the achievement of certain performance targets by the Company.
On April 25, 2014, AMC Networks granted 353,757 restricted stock units to an executive officer under the AMC Networks Inc. Amended and Restated 2011 Employee Stock Plan which vest on December 31, 2020 and include the achievement of certain performance targets by the Company.
On June 10, 2014, AMC Networks granted 23,634 restricted stock units under the Amended and Restated 2011 Non-Employee Director Plan to non-employee directors that vested on the date of grant.
During the six months ended June 30, 2014, 566,328 restricted shares of AMC Networks Class A common stock previously issued to employees of Cablevision and the Company vested. In connection with the employees’ satisfaction of the statutory minimum tax withholding obligations for the applicable income and other employment taxes, 230,989 of these shares, with an aggregate value of $17,804, were surrendered to the Company. These acquired shares, as well as 6,503 forfeited unvested restricted shares, have been classified as treasury stock.
Share-based compensation expense included in selling, general and administrative expense, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 was $8,760 and $13,839, respectively and $5,604 and $9,941 for the three and six months ended June 30,2013, respectively.
As of June 30, 2014, there was $72,605 of total unrecognized share-based compensation cost related to Company employees who held unvested AMC Networks restricted shares/units. The unrecognized compensation cost is expected to be recognized over a weighted-average remaining period of approximately 3.6 years.
Note 15. Related Party Transactions
Members of the Dolan Family, for purposes of Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, including trusts for the benefit of the Dolan Family, collectively beneficially own all of the Company’s outstanding Class B Common Stock and own less than 2% of the Company’s outstanding Class A Common Stock. Such shares of the Company’s Class A Common Stock and Class B Common Stock, collectively, represent approximately 66% of the aggregate voting power of the Company’s outstanding common stock. Members of the Dolan Family are also the controlling stockholders of both Cablevision and The Madison Square Garden Company and its subsidiaries (“MSG”).
In connection with the spin off from Cablevision, the Company entered into various agreements with Cablevision, such as a distribution agreement, a tax disaffiliation agreement, a transition services agreement, an employee matters agreement and certain related party arrangements. These agreements govern certain of the Company’s relationships with Cablevision subsequent to the spin off and provide for the allocation of employee benefits, taxes and certain other liabilities and obligations attributable to periods prior to the Distribution. These agreements also include arrangements with respect to transition services and a number of on-going commercial relationships. The distribution agreement includes an agreement that the Company and Cablevision agree to provide each other with indemnities with respect to liabilities arising out of the businesses Cablevision transferred to the Company.
The Company records revenues, net from subsidiaries of Cablevision and MSG. Revenues, net from related parties amounted to $7,525 and $8,127 for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively. Revenues, net from related parties amounted to $15,214 and $16,268 for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively.
In addition, the Company and its related parties routinely enter into transactions with each other in the ordinary course of business. Amounts charged to the Company, included in technical and operating expenses, pursuant to transactions with its related parties amounted to $155 and $310 for the three and six months ended and June 30, 2013, respectively; there were no amounts charged for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014, respectively. Amounts charged to the Company, included in selling, general and administrative expenses, pursuant to the transition services agreement and for other transactions with its related parties amounted to $890 and $1,428 for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively. Selling, general and administrative expenses with its related parties amounted to $1,549 and $2,222 for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013, respectively.
As more fully described in our 2013 Form 10-K, DISH Network L.L.C. (“DISH Network”), VOOM HD Holdings LLC (“VOOM HD”) and CSC Holdings, LLC (“CSC Holdings”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Cablevision Systems Corporation, entered into a confidential settlement agreement on October 21, 2012 (the “Settlement Agreement”) to settle the litigation between VOOM HD and DISH Network. In connection with the Settlement Agreement, DISH Network entered into a long-term affiliation agreement with certain subsidiaries of the Company that provided for the carriage of AMC, IFC, SundanceTV and WE tv. In addition, DISH Network paid $700,000 to an account for the benefit of Cablevision and the Company (“Settlement Funds”), which

was initially distributed equally to each of the Company and Cablevision, pending a determination of the allocation of the settlement proceeds.
In April 2013, Cablevision and the Company entered into an agreement (the “DISH Networks Proceeds Allocation Agreement”) whereby the Company paid to Cablevision $175,000 of the settlement proceeds. Additionally, during the second quarter of 2013, the Company recorded a litigation settlement gain of approximately $133,000, included in operating income within the International and Other segment, representing the deferred litigation settlement proceeds liability of approximately $307,944 recorded in the condensed consolidated balance sheet at December 31, 2012 less the $175,000 paid to Cablevision.

Note 18. Segment Information
The Company classifies its operations into two operating segments: National Networks and International and Other. These reportable segments represent strategic business units that are managed separately.
The Company generally allocates all corporate overhead costs to the Company’s two operating segments based upon their

19

AMC NETWORKS INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS - (Continued)
(Dollars in thousands, except per share amounts)
(unaudited)

proportionate estimated usage of services, including such costs as executive salaries and benefits, costs of maintaining corporate headquarters, facilities and common support functions (such as human resources, legal, finance, tax, accounting, audit, treasury, risk management, strategic planning and information technology) as well as sales support functions and creative and production services.
The Company evaluates segment performance based on several factors, of which the primary financial measure is operating segment adjusted operating cash flow (defined as operating income (loss) before depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation expense or benefit, restructuring expense or credit and the litigation settlement gain recorded in connection with the settlement with DISH Network). The Company does not consider the one-time litigation settlement gain with DISH Network to be indicative of its ongoing operating performance. The Company has presented the components that reconcile adjusted operating cash flow to operating income, an accepted GAAP measure and other information as to the continuing operations of the Company’s reportable segments below.
As of March 31, 2014, following the Chellomedia acquisition on January 31, 2014 (see Note 2), the manner in which the President and Chief Executive Officer, who is the chief operating decision maker, evaluates performance and makes decisions about how to allocate resources changed, resulting in the reorganization of the Company's operating segments. The National Networks operating segment now includes the results of AMC and Sundance Channel in Canada and AMC Networks Broadcasting & Technology, the Company's network technical services business, which primarily services the nationally distributed programming networks of the Company. Previously, the results of these operations were included in the International and Other operating segment. The results of AMC Networks International are included in the International and Other operating segment. Operating segment information for the prior period has been recast to reflect these changes.

Note 19. Condensed Consolidating Financial Statements
Long-term debt of AMC Networks includes $700,000 of 7.75% senior notes due July 2021 and $600,000 of 4.75% senior notes due December 2022. All outstanding senior notes issued by AMC Networks are guaranteed on a senior unsecured basis by certain of its existing and future domestic restricted subsidiaries (the “Guarantor Subsidiaries”). All Guarantor Subsidiaries are owned 100% by AMC Networks. The outstanding notes are fully and unconditionally guaranteed by the Guarantor Subsidiaries on a joint and several basis.
Set forth below are condensed consolidating financial statements presenting the financial position, results of operations, comprehensive income, and cash flows of (i) the Parent Company, (ii) the Guarantor Subsidiaries on a combined basis (as such guarantees are joint and several), (iii) the direct and indirect non-guarantor subsidiaries of the Parent Company (the “Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries”) on a combined basis and (iv) reclassifications and eliminations necessary to arrive at the information for the Company on a consolidated basis.
Basis of Presentation
 In presenting the condensed consolidating financial statements, the equity method of accounting has been applied to (i) the Parent Company's interests in the Guarantor Subsidiaries and the Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries, and (ii) the Guarantor Subsidiaries' interests in the Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries, even though all such subsidiaries meet the requirements to be consolidated under GAAP. All intercompany balances and transactions between the Parent Company, the Guarantor Subsidiaries and the Non-Guarantor Subsidiaries have been eliminated, as shown in the column “Eliminations.”
 The accounting basis in all subsidiaries, including goodwill and identified intangible assets, have been allocated to the applicable subsidiaries.
