FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL YEAR RESULTS

Revenues for the fourth quarter of 2015 decreased \\$18 million or 2% versus the year-earlier quarter to \\$877 million. The stronger U.S. dollar relative to the British pound had a \\$6 million adverse impact on Revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2015. Excluding the impact of U.S. dollar/British pound exchange rate changes, Revenues would have decreased 1%.

For the full year 2015, Revenues decreased \\$178 million or 5% versus the prior year to \\$3.10 billion. The stronger U.S. dollar relative to the British pound had a \\$33 million adverse impact on Revenues for the year ended December 31, 2015. Results for the year ended December 31, 2014 included \\$48 million of revenues from our disposed Mexico-based operations, Grupo Editorial Expansi?n ("GEX"), and our CNNMoney.com collaborative arrangement with Time Warner, which terminated in connection with our spin-off from Time Warner, and were adversely impacted by \\$22 million from the wholesaler transition first announced in May 2014. Excluding the impacts of U.S. dollar/British pound exchange rate changes, the GEX and CNNMoney.com dispositions and the wholesaler transition, Revenues would have decreased 4%.

Advertising Revenues decreased \\$12 million or 2% in the fourth quarter of 2015 from the year-earlier quarter to \\$484 million. The stronger U.S. dollar relative to the British pound had a \\$2 million adverse impact on Advertising revenues.

Excluding the impact of U.S. dollar/British pound exchange rate changes, Print and other advertising revenues would have decreased 6%. The decrease was driven principally by lower average price per page of advertising sold primarily due to the mix of advertisers and by a decline in advertising pages sold primarily due to the continuing trend of advertisers shifting advertising spending from print to other media. Our domestic titles experienced advertising declines in the financial, beauty, and fashion/retail categories, partially offset by strong sales in the pharmaceutical and food categories.

For the full year 2015, Print and other advertising revenues decreased \\$153 million or 10% from the prior year to \\$1.32 billion. The stronger U.S. dollar relative to the British pound had an \\$8 million adverse impact on Print and other advertising revenues.

Excluding the impacts of U.S. dollar/British pound exchange rate changes and the GEX disposition, Print and other advertising revenues would have decreased 9%.

For the full year 2015, Costs of revenues declined \\$73 million or 6% versus the prior year to \\$1.21 billion.

Excluding the impacts of U.S. dollar/British pound exchange rate changes and the GEX disposition, Production costs would have decreased 4% due to lower volume of pages produced and favorable paper and printing costs.

Editorial costs decreased \\$10 million or 10% from the year-earlier quarter to \\$93 million. Excluding the impact of U.S. dollar/British pound exchange rate changes, Editorial costs would have decreased 9%, primarily driven by savings from previously announced cost savings initiatives, partially offset by digital investments.

Excluding the impacts of U.S. dollar/British pound exchange rate changes and the GEX and CNNMoney.com dispositions, Editorial costs would have decreased 9% primarily as a result of previously announced cost savings initiatives, partially offset by costs associated with growth initiatives and the operations of acquired businesses.

The increase in both periods was driven by costs associated with growth initiatives and the operations of acquired businesses.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses ("SG&A") increased \\$23 million or 6% from the year-earlier quarter to \\$391 million. The stronger U.S. dollar relative to the British pound benefited SG&A by \\$2 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2015. Excluding the impact of U.S. dollar/British pound exchange rate changes, SG&A would have increased 7% driven by expenses associated with growth initiatives and the operations of acquired businesses, \\$11 million of incremental real estate related expenses associated with the relocation of our corporate headquarters and the leaseback of properties in Birmingham, Alabama and Menlo Park, California, a portion of which was associated with temporary space, partially offset by benefits realized from previously announced cost savings initiatives.

In addition to the \\$6 million for the settlement of our domestic excess pension plan in 2015, included in SG&A for the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014 were \\$10 million and \\$7 million, respectively, of other costs related to mergers, acquisitions, investments and dispositions, all of which have been excluded from our Adjusted OIBDA calculation.

Restructuring and Severance Costs were \\$169 million and \\$28 million for the quarters ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively. Restructuring and severance costs were \\$191 million and \\$192 million for the years ended December 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively. Such costs primarily related to headcount reductions and real estate consolidations including the exit in the fourth quarter of 2015 from our former corporate headquarters.

Gain (Loss) on Operating Assets, Net was a gain of \\$68 million for the three months and year ended December 31, 2015, which was related to the sale leaseback of the Blue Fin Building, our principal executive offices in the U.K. An additional gain of \\$97 million resulting from the sale leaseback has been deferred and will be recognized over the term of our lease at the Blue Fin Building.

Goodwill Impairment was nil for the three months ended December 31, 2015 and 2014. Goodwill impairment was a noncash pretax charge of \\$952 million and \\$26 million for the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The 2015 charge was the result of the recent decline in our publicly traded share price and trends in our advertising and circulation revenues. The 2014 charge related to the sale of our Mexico-based GEX operations.

Operating Income (Loss) was income of \\$10 million and \\$215 million for the quarters ended December 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively. The decrease in Operating income in the fourth quarter of 2015 versus the fourth quarter of 2014 was primarily driven by restructuring charges. For the full year, Operating loss was \\$823 million for the year ended December 31, 2015 versus income of \\$180 million for the year ended December 31, 2014. Operating loss for the year ended December 31, 2015 was the result of the noncash goodwill impairment charge.

Adjusted OIBDA of \\$159 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 represented a decrease of \\$44 million from the year-earlier quarter of 2014 primarily due to lower Operating income. Adjusted OIBDA for the year ended December 31, 2015 of \\$440 million represented a decrease of \\$84 million from the prior year primarily due to lower Revenues, partially offset by lower Costs of revenues and SG&A. The wholesaler transition adversely impacted Adjusted OIBDA during the year ended December 31, 2014 by \\$30 million.

Net Income (Loss) was income of \\$17 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 versus income of \\$145 million for the year-earlier quarter.

For the full year 2015, Net loss was \\$881 million compared to net income of \\$87 million for the prior year.

Adjusted diluted EPS was \\$1.10 versus \\$1.58 in the prior year.

Free Cash Flow was an outflow of \\$53 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2015 versus an inflow of \\$100 million for the year-earlier quarter, primarily reflecting higher capital expenditures of \\$69 million, principally associated with our real estate relocations, and an additional contribution of \\$75 million to our U.K. pension plan. Free cash flow was an outflow of \\$58 million for the year ended December 31, 2015 versus an inflow of \\$240 million for the year ended December 31, 2014, primarily reflecting higher capital expenditures of \\$171 million, principally associated with our real estate relocations, as well as an additional contribution of \\$75 million to our U.K. pension plan.

On February 11, 2016, our Board of Directors declared a dividend of \\$0.19 per common share to stockholders of record as of the close of business on February 29, 2016, payable on March 15, 2016.

In November 2015, the sale leaseback of the Blue Fin Building was consummated generating net cash proceeds of \\$623 million.

In the fourth quarter of 2015, we repurchased \\$75 million of aggregate principal amount of our 5.75% Senior Notes at a discount and recognized a pretax gain of \\$2 million on the extinguishment of such notes. We also repurchased 3.93 million shares of our common stock at a weighted average price of \\$16.08 per common share during the fourth quarter of 2015. From January 1, 2016 through February 5, 2016, we repurchased \\$25 million of aggregate principal amount of our 5.75% Senior Notes at a discount and recognized a pretax gain of \\$2 million on the extinguishment of such notes.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

Time Inc. utilizes Adjusted Operating Income Before Depreciation and Amortization ("Adjusted OIBDA"), among other measures, to evaluate the performance of its business. Adjusted OIBDA is defined as Operating income (loss) excluding Depreciation and Amortization of intangible assets ("OIBDA") and adjusted for impairments of Goodwill, intangibles, fixed assets and investments; Restructuring and severance costs; gains and losses on operating assets; pension plan settlements and/or curtailments; and Other costs related to mergers, acquisitions, investments and dispositions.

Adjusted Net Income is Net income (loss) adjusted for impairments of Goodwill, intangibles, fixed assets and investments; Restructuring and severance costs; gains and losses on operating and/or non-operating assets; pension plan settlements and/or curtailments; gains and losses on extinguishment of debt; Other costs related to mergers, acquisitions, investments and dispositions; as well as the impact of income taxes on the above items. Similarly, Adjusted Diluted EPS is Diluted net income (loss) per common share from continuing operations excluding the above items.

Free Cash Flow is defined as cash provided by (used in) operations less Capital expenditures. The company uses Free Cash Flow to evaluate its business and this measure is considered an important indicator of the company's liquidity, including its ability to reduce net debt, make strategic investments, and pay dividends to common stockholders.

We believe that the presentation of OIBDA, Adjusted OIBDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS and Free Cash Flow helps investors analyze underlying trends in our business, evaluate the performance of our business both on an absolute basis and relative to our peers and the broader market, provides useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of our core operating results and operational strength of our business and helps investors evaluate our ability to service our debt.

Some limitations of OIBDA, Adjusted OIBDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS and Free Cash Flow are that they do not reflect certain charges that affect the operating results of the companys business and they involve judgment as to whether items affect fundamental operating performance.

A general limitation of these measures is that they are not prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies due to differences in methods of calculation and excluded items. OIBDA, Adjusted OIBDA, Adjusted Net Income, Adjusted Diluted EPS and Free Cash Flow should be considered in addition to, not as a substitute for, the companys Operating income (loss), Net income (loss), diluted net income (loss) per common share from continuing operations and various cash flow measures (e.g., cash provided by (used in) operations), as well as other measures of financial performance and liquidity reported in accordance with GAAP.

In addition, this earnings release includes comparisons that exclude the impacts of foreign currency exchange rate changes. These comparisons, which are non-GAAP measures, are calculated by assuming constant foreign currency exchange rates used for translation based on the rates in effect for the comparable prior-year period. In order to compute our constant currency results, we multiply or divide, as appropriate, our current year U.S. dollar results by the current year average foreign exchange rates and then multiply or divide, as appropriate, those amounts by the prior year average foreign exchange rates. We believe this provides useful supplemental information regarding our results of operations, consistent with how we evaluate our own performance.
