The Dolan Company Reports Third Quarter 2013 Results

“Subsequent to the end of the third quarter, we signed a sixth amendment to our credit agreement with our banking syndicate. We view this amendment as a short-term solution to our balance sheet as we explore options to provide a broader long-term solution to our capital structure,” Dolan said.

“Due to continued trends of declining public notice advertising revenue, we recorded a non-cash goodwill impairment charge of $35.4 million,” Dolan said.

2013 Guidance

The guidance covers revenue and adjusted EBITDA for the Professional Services Division, including NDeX Minnesota, and the Business Information Division, and it includes corporate costs. The company’s 2013 financial guidance is:
