Guardian Media Group plc Reports Earnings Results for the Full Year Ended March 30, 2014; Provides Revenue Guidance for the Full Year of Fiscal 2015
Jul 8 14
Guardian Media Group plc reported earnings results for the full year ended March 30, 2014. The Guardian has credited a strong editorial performance - which included its NSA revelations that dominated the global news agenda - the launch of its Guardian Labs branded content agency and its above the line marketing activity for a ‘stellar’ year of revenue growth in 2013. Group revenue from continuing operations grew 6.8% year on year to 210.2 million, with 2013 restated to exclude the company's share of the Trader Media Group it disposed of last year, as well as radio and the Property Services Group. The disposal of Trader Media Group helped lead to a threefold increase in the group's cash and investment fund, to £842.7 million and saw profit before tax rising from £523.3 million to £549.2 million.
Going forward, the Guardian Media Group is looking to increase revenues both online and offline in fiscal 2015 by offering membership services to leverage its loyal audience.
Guardian Media Group Announces Management Changes
Dec 16 13
Guardian Media Group has promoted its chief commercial officer and former CMO David Pemsel into the new role of deputy chief executive as the company sets its sights on global expansion. In his new role Pemsel will be responsible for integrating and leading the Guardian's UK, US and Australian businesses to build 'one truly global organisation'. He will work to build the Guardian's domestic functions - which include marketing and audience insight, advertising sales, Guardian Jobs, membership, commercial delivery, consumer revenues and Guardian Labs - into unified global functions. As part of the invigorated international focus, the company is also promoting Tony Danker, who most recently worked to launch Guardian Australia to director of international and partnerships. He will be responsible for managing Guardian News and Media's global partnerships with digital distribution platforms and for identifying new investment areas. As a result of the changes Michael Bloom, Guardian US CEO, is leaving the company to pursue other opportunities in January 2014. David Pemsel joined Guardian News and Media in 2012 as chief marketing officer. He had previously been working for The Guardian on a consultancy basis and helped appoint creative agency BBH.
