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.
