Univision Communications notched some milestones during the first fiscal quarter of this year, including beating beleaguered NBC during the February sweeps.
The privately held Spanish-language media company on Tuesday released its first-quarter earnings, which saw a 6.4% increase in revenue to $562 million. During the first quarter of 2012, the company generated $528 million in revenue.
For the quarter ended March 31, net income came in at $9 million, compared with a $14-million loss in the first quarter of 2012.
Univision is owned by a consortium of investors, including Los Angeles billionaire Haim Saban, Thomas H. Lee Partners, Providence Equity Partners, Madison Dearborn Partners, Texas Pacific Group and Mexico's largest media company, Grupo Televisa.
