News Corporation Reports Fourth Quarter And Full Year Results For Fiscal 2014

News Corporation (“News Corp” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:NWS) (NASDAQ:NWSA) (ASX:NWS) (ASX:NWSLV) today reported financial results for the three months and fiscal year ended June 30, 2014.

Commenting on the results, Chief Executive Robert Thomson said:

“We finished our first full year as the new News Corp and made significant progress in achieving the mission we articulated at the outset – to be more global and more digital through organic growth, product launches and strategic acquisitions. Thanks to the exciting e-evolution of News Corp's leading global brands, we are enjoying enhanced engagement with our expanding paid audiences, underscoring the growth potential of our diverse portfolio.

"In addition to acquiring Storyful in December, strengthening our video reach and depth, we completed the Harlequin acquisition last week – which brings an international digital platform to HarperCollins.  REA, our digital real estate services company, continues to show impressive top- and bottom-line growth, while importantly, expanding to new markets – most recently in Southeast Asia through an investment in iProperty.  While we are operating in a challenging advertising environment, our results highlight the diversification of our portfolio and our cost discipline, leading to improved free cash flow and a firm foundation for sustained growth."

FULL YEAR RESULTS

The Company reported fiscal 2014 full year total revenues of $8.57 billion, a 4% decrease as compared to the prior year revenues of $8.89 billion. The majority of the revenue decline reflects lower advertising revenues at the News and Information Services segment, foreign currency fluctuations and the sale of the Dow Jones Local Media Group (“LMG”), partially offset by the inclusion of FOX SPORTS Australia, which News Corp began consolidating in November 2012 following the Consolidated Media Holdings (“CMH”) acquisition, and strong performance in the Book Publishing and Digital Real Estate Services segments. Adjusted revenues (as defined in Note 1) were 1% lower than the prior year.
