Last Updated Jan 6, 2009 5:47 PM EST The Washington Post Company said sales at its newspaper publishing division and magazine unit for the third-quarter ended September 28 fell seven percent to $196.2 million and four percent to $59.9 million, respectively, as circulation and print advertising revenue continued to decline as readers and ad dollars migrate online. Albeit its newsprint businesses are awash in red ink, The Washington Post is positioned to survive the shakeout rocking the print media landscape, for it has presciently diversified into education products and related services with its 1984 acquisition of Kaplan, a provider of college test preparation courses and post-secondary education programs. Education now accounts for more than 53 percent of total sales, according to the third-quarter 10-Q regulatory filing:Education division revenue totaled $602.7 million for the third quarter of 2008, a 17% increase over revenue of $514.6 million for the same period of 2007. … [Read more...] about The Washington Post Thrives in Internet Age
Last Updated Jul 31, 2009 6:39 PM EDT When S&P downgraded the Washington Post Co.'s credit rating late in June, the ratings agency said it expected the company's total EBITDA to sink by 30% in 2009. Well, the company's Q-2 earnings report is out today, and there's a lot of red ink, especially at the Pulitzer-Prize winning newspaper and at Newsweek magazine. But the company's overall financial health is boosted by its profitable Kaplan's educational operations plus a regional cable TV division, so it reported a profitable result overall, which cheered Wall Street (see chart). For a more-detailed perspective on the company's numbers, please read Editor & Publisher's authoritative blog on the newspaper industry, Fitz & Jen, which today concludes, "...it's clear that the proud flagship newspaper isn't just being outshined by the Kaplan education business -- it's become a drag on the company itself. (Italics added.) Think about that for a moment. The publication that the … [Read more...] about Is the Washington Post Sinking its Own Ship?
Last Updated Feb 25, 2010 1:07 PM EST In its quarterly earnings report just filed with the SEC, the Washington Post Co. reports strong results, even though the metro newspaper of the same name continues to perform poorly in all categories. As with other poor financial performers in the traditional newspaper industry, this raises the obvious question of whether and how long the major paper in the nation's capital will be sustainable. First, the results:Print advertising revenue at the Post declined 9 percent for the fourth quarter and 23 percent for the year in 2009, down to $317 million from $410.4 million in 2008. Daily circulation at the Post declined 5.9 percent, and Sunday circulation declined 4.7 percent in 2009. The newspaper's online performance was also dismal. Online revenue fell 8 percent to $99.6 million last year, from $108.3 million in 2008. In the fourth quarter, the newspaper's online revenue edged up 1 percent from the fourth quarter of 2008. (But even this slight … [Read more...] about The Washington Post Company Thrives as the Newspaper Withers
