News Corporation’s quarterly profits double

Category : Business

Increase related to acquisition of Fox Sports Australia and Fox Star Sports Asia and ‘improvements’ in publishing operations

Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation has reported a doubling of quarterly profits but paid out a further $56m (£35.8m) in costs related to the News of the World phone-hacking scandal.

News Corp reported net profits of $2.4bn in the three months to the end of December, compared to $1.1bn in the same period a year earlier, on sales up 5% to $9.4bn. Most of the increased profits were related to the acquisition of the 50% stakes in Fox Sports Australia and Fox Star Sports Asia that News Corp didn’t already own.

Murdoch said the increase in profits was due to “double-digit gains” in News Corp’s cable TV businesses and “improvements” in its publishing operations, which includes the Sun, the Times, the Sunday Times and the Wall Street Journal.

The company said its publishing division, which reported a $16m increase in profits to $234m, benefited from the launch of the Sun on Sunday in February 2012.

The $56m in compensation payments and costs related to the News of the World take the total payout related to the phone-hacking scandal to more than $340m. News International, the division which controls the UK newspapers, is making a concerted effort to close down the hacking saga, agreeing out-of-court settlements on 143 of 165 outstanding civil damages cases it is facing in the high court before a key hearing before a judge on Friday.

Murdoch said News Corp was making progress in its plan to split the $54bn global empire into two separate publicly listed companies – a newspaper, book publishing and education division and a media and entertainment company. Work on splitting up the company cost the company $23m in the latest quarter.

Last week, News Corp said Will Lewis, one of the executives running News Corporation’s controversial management and standards committee dealing with the phone–hacking scandal, is moving to a new senior role with in the newspaper division’s headquarters in New York.

James Murdoch, Rupert Murdoch’s son and News Corp’s deputy chief operating officer, said he did not expect Liberty Global’s $23.3bn takeover of Virgin Media to effect the competitiveness of the cable TV market.
