16. Blockbuster posts loss; sees more cost-cutting

CHICAGO, Nov 8 (Reuters) - Blockbuster Inc. (BBI.N: Quote, Profile, Research), the nation's No. 1 video rental chain, on Tuesday reported a quarterly loss as it grapples with a downturn in the rental industry and a bruising battle with rival Netflix Inc. (NFLX.O: Quote, Profile, Research).

Blockbuster reported a third-quarter net loss of $491.4 million, or $2.67 per share, including asset impairment and other charges.

Excluding those items, the loss totaled $24.6 million, or 13 cents per share. Analysts, on average, had expected an operating loss of 12 cents per share, according to Reuters Estimates.


It said it intends to cut costs by more than $100 million in 2006 and $50 million in 2007 by reducing overhead and marketing spending and selling non-core assets.
