AOL Returns to Ad Growth as Loss Narrows

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- AOL (AOL - Get Report) reported a return to advertising revenue growth as it posted a second-quarter loss on revenue somewhat higher than analysts were expecting.

The online media company posted a net loss for the second quarter of $11.8 million, or 11 cents a share. A year earlier, the company lost $1.05 billion, or $9.89 share.

The company had $542.2 million in revenue for the quarter, vs. $592 million in the year-ago period. A consensus of analysts was expecting revenue of $530 million. Advertising revenue rose to $319 million from $304.7 million a year earlier.
