WWE revealed that they have trimmed their outlook for 2013 due to lowered revenue expectations and higher investment spending, in a press release issued on Friday. Operating income was lowered before depreciation and amortization of $40 million – $50 million from the $56.9 million – $69.5 million they previously projected. Revenue for the second half of 2013 is expected to be 5% lower than previously expected.

“Our revised 2013 Outlook reflects a relatively moderate change in our second half revenue expectations and our continued investment in the WWE brand and our content,” said George Barrios, Chief Financial Officer. “Given the rising value of content in the market place, we believe these investments will maximize WWE’s future earnings as we renegotiate our four largest television distribution agreements and potentially launch a WWE Network.”

WWE’s stock was down 2.6% in after hours trading on Friday.

As PWMania.com previously reported, there was talk of cutting back non-essential talents such as managers from house shows due to the revised outlook.

    That’s because of the content of their show. how do you expect people invest their time in such shows when it just plain sucks?

  • ATLANTIS

    So it’s not only TNA that is suffering financial difficulties?
