ISC Revenues Up For First Half Of '12, But Economy Hurting Admission
Published July 5, 2012
Admissions revenues for the first half of the year increased by $3.8M from a year ago and motorsports-related revenue from TV rights and sponsorship sales increased $13.2M over the same period. The company reported higher Q2 revenue ($179.6M) and operating income ($33.2M) this year because it had two more Sprint Cup races than it did during the same period in '11, when it reported revenues of $138.8M and income of $24.1M. ISC said it has hit 92% of its sponsorship sales goal for the year and secured all but two of its NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race entitlements, which it expects to sell. ISC said it still expects annual revenue to be in the $610-630M range.
