The fiscal 2023 second quarter was highlighted by the successful 2022 holiday season run of the Christmas Spectacular production and ongoing positive momentum in the Company’s entertainment and sports bookings business. MSG Networks began its coverage of the NBA and NHL 2022-23 regular seasons, which included the return of the New York Knicks and New York Rangers to The Garden. In addition, Tao Group Hospitality continued to see strength across its existing venues, while also benefiting from the addition of new entertainment dining locations.

In addition, the Company expects to complete the spin-off by the end of March 2023. Completion of the transaction remains subject to various conditions, including final Board approval. For the fiscal 2023 second quarter, the Company reported revenues of $642.2 million, an increase of $125.8 million, or 24%, as compared to the prior year quarter. In addition, the Company reported operating income of $74.0 million, an increase of $38.6 million, or 109%, and adjusted operating income of $124.1 million, an increase of $48.0 million, or 63%, both as compared to the prior year period.(1)
