The McClatchy Company Reports Unaudited Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Quarter Ended March 29, 2015; Provides Revenue Guidance for the Year 2015
Apr 24 15
The McClatchy Company reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the first quarter ended March 29, 2015. For the quarter, total net revenue was $257.178 million against $276.171 million a year ago. Operating loss was $1.158 million against $4.698 million a year ago. Loss from continuing operations before taxes was $18.999 million against $28.486 million a year ago. Loss from continuing operation was $11.346 million or $0.13 per basic and diluted share against $16.062 million or $0.19 per basic and diluted share a year ago. Net loss was $11.346 million or $0.13 per basic and diluted share against $15.842 million or $0.18 per basic and diluted share a year ago. Operating cash flow was $27.243 million against $38.534 million a year ago. Adjusted loss from continuing operations was $8.747 million against $6.125 million a year ago. Debt at the end of the first quarter was $1.033 billion. Results in the first quarter of 2015 were impacted by severance charges totaling $4.2 million, or $2.6 million after-tax, among other items. Operating cash expenses, excluding severance and certain other charges declined 3.2% from the same quarter last year. This decrease is in spite of an increase of $2.7 million from investments related to new revenue and other initiatives and digital infrastructure such as new enterprise-wide systems.
For 2015, the company expects growth in digital subscribers and selective rate increases are expected to continue to fuel low single-digit increases in audience revenues. Management expects newspaper print advertising to continue to represent a smaller share of overall revenue, due in part to the growth in digital-only advertising, direct marketing and audience revenues. Management expects to have another challenging quarter in the second quarter before cash flow flattens in the second half of 2015. Management noted that expenses may be reduced further if needed based upon the revenue environment.
