ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- DISH Network Corporation (DISH) today reported 2012 total revenue of $14.27 billion compared to $14.05 billion in 2011, an increase of 1.6 percent. Net income attributable to DISH Network in 2012 was $637 million compared to $1.52 billion in 2011. Diluted earnings per share were $1.41 in 2012, compared with $3.39 in 2011. Total revenue for the fourth quarter 2012 was $3.59 billion, compared to revenues of $3.63 billion in the year-ago quarter. Net income attributable to the fourth quarter was $209 million compared to $313 million in the fourth quarter of 2011. The decrease in the full-year net income was due to higher subscriber-related expenses driven by programming costs, increased subscriber acquisition costs from higher gross additions, as well as certain one-time items, including the Voom litigation settlement expense. Additionally, the decrease in year-over-year net income was affected by the 2011 reversal of accrued expenses related to the company’s TiVo litigation. Dish Network Corp.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
