Daily Journal Corporation Announces Financial Results For The Nine Months Ended June 30, 2013

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- During the nine months ended June 30, 2013, consolidated pretax income of Daily Journal Corporation (Nasdaq:DJCO) decreased by $1,257,000 (24%) to $4,086,000 from $5,343,000 in the comparable prior year period.

The Company's traditional business segment pretax income increased by $1,078,000 to $7,869,000 in the nine months ended June 30, 2013 from $6,791,000 in the prior year period when the Company incurred impairment losses on investments of $2,855,000. This year there was a reduction in trustee sale notice and related service fee revenues of $3,055,000, partially offset by a reduction in operating costs and expenses of $144,000 and an increase in dividends and interest income of $381,000.

Sustain's and New Dawn's business segment had a pretax loss of $3,783,000 compared to $1,455,000 in the prior year period primarily due to (i) the addition of New Dawn's pretax loss of $718,000 and (ii) an increase in Sustain's implementation and development personnel costs of $1,191,000 during the nine months ended June 30, 2013.

Consolidated revenues were $26,650,000 and $24,117,000 for the nine months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. This increase of $2,533,000 was primarily from the additional New Dawn revenues of $6,430,000, partially offset by the reduction in trustee sale notice and related service fee revenues of $3,055,000. Although public notice advertising revenues were down compared to the prior year period, and although that trend is expected to continue, the Company still continued to benefit from the relatively large number of foreclosures in California and Arizona for which public notice advertising is required by law.

At June 30, 2013, the Company held marketable securities valued at $128,421,000, including unrealized gains of $78,727,000. It accrued a liability of $31,360,000 for income taxes due only upon the sales of the appreciated securities. The marketable securities consist of common stocks of three Fortune 200 companies, two foreign companies and certain bonds of a sixth, and most of the unrealized gains were in the common stocks.
