SuperMedia Announces First Quarter 2012 Results

SuperMedia (NASDAQ:SPMD) today announced its financial results for the first quarter 2012.

During the first quarter, SuperMedia’s continued focus on operating efficiencies resulted in improved operating income and margins, despite a decline in revenue.

“As we continue to execute our transformation plan in 2012, we have maintained our focus on keeping costs down,” said president and CEO Peter McDonald. “To date, we have trained a significant portion of our media consultants in our new sales approach to provide end to end solutions for small and medium size businesses.

It is important to note that while we believe we are making strides in executing our 2012 plan, because of our sales cycle, it will take time to transform this business and for the potential impacts of these changes to affect our top line results.”
