Nov 9 (Reuters) - Walt Disney Co reported a 2.8 percent drop in quarterly revenue on Thursday, weighed down by the lack of any major box office releases, sending the company’s shares down about 3 percent in extended trading.
Disney’s revenue fell to $12.78 billion in the fourth quarter ended Sept. 30 from $13.14 billion a year earlier.
Net income attributable to the company declined to $1.75 billion from $1.77 billion.
The results come after CNBC reported on Monday that Disney had, in the last few weeks, held talks about buying most of Twenty-First Century Fox’s film and television assets. The two sides are not currently in discussion, CNBC had reported.
Disney did not address the report in its earnings release.
