Commenting on the results, Chief Executive Robert Thomson said:

“News Corp made real progress as it continued to drive higher digital revenues and position the Company for long-term growth. While the quarter presented some obvious challenges, particularly in print advertising and the weakness of the Pound Sterling, our revenues were relatively stable, underscoring the strength and scale of our portfolio and shift to digital.

Our Digital Real Estate Services segment posted another strong quarter with an 18% year-over-year revenue increase and is on a clear path to reshape the character of News Corp. At Realtor.com®, we generated solid revenue growth even as we retooled our product offerings. We expect that momentum to accelerate this year and to contribute meaningfully to EBITDA.
