Media General Presenting Today At The Deutsche Bank 2013 DbAccess Media, Internet & Telecom Conference


Corporate expense will decrease by approximately 35% from last year, based primarily on a workforce reduction that was completed in 2012.

Compensation expense growth includes a 2% merit increase and an approximate 7% increase in benefits expense, due in part to the impact of the Affordable Care Act regulations. 

Higher NBC affiliate fees will be offset by increased Retransmission revenues.

As the year unfolds, stations may fill open positions as well as invest in new positions for news staff, including digital resources, to support ratings and revenue growth objectives. Stations may also invest in greater marketing and promotion to enhance local competitiveness. Stations will adjust or defer expenses as appropriate to align business conditions with profit goals.

Uses of Cash

Media General entered 2013 with a cash balance of $37 million. The company does not expect to carry an outstanding balance in 2013 on its revolving credit facility, which has availability of $45 million. Media General continues to expect that cash provided by operations in 2013 will cover interest payments of $68 million, capital expenditures of $15 million and a pension plan contribution of $4.5 million.
