Graham Holdings Plans Acquisitions

Graham Holdings Company (NYSE:GHC) intends to make acquisitions. Don Graham, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the company said: “Our largest profit stream now comes from our five major market television stations. Revenue and operating income were up substantially the first nine months of 2014 due to increased political advertising, the Winter Olympics, and increased retrans revenues. The most important development the past three years is that we hired an outstanding CEO in Emily Barr. We haven't bought television stations recently, but we have made some small acquisitions related to the television business. And we would make more. We have great faith in her to run our stations and to build for the future.” He added: “We've made a series of small acquisitions in the last two years. I flat want to tell you, we are likely to make more. These have got us into the home healthcare business in two small segments of manufacturing. All four are living up to our expectations at the time we bought them.” He further said: “We also have the opportunity, when it seems obvious, to acquire equity stakes in public companies, as we have done over the years.” He also stated: “So we have a fund that on conservative assumptions -- and all our assumptions are conservative -- has $1 billion surplus. Yes, you could acquire -- when we've talked to companies, they have been interested in that. And there are plenty of companies that are struggling to fund their pension plans that are interested in the fact that we almost uniquely have a surplus of such assets.”
