16:34 EDTCBSO, CBSCBS Outdoor completes separation from CBS and REIT conversion
CBS Outdoor Americas (CBSO) announced its full separation from CBS (CBS) through the completion of an exchange offer by CBS Corporation of its 81% ownership of the company’s common stock, and following an initial public offering of 19% of the company’s common stock on March 28. As a result, the company is no longer a subsidiary of CBS Corporation. On July 17, the company will begin operating as a real estate investment trust and intends to elect and qualify to be taxed as a REIT for the remainder of the fiscal year ending December 31, and for subsequent tax years. The Internal Revenue Service issued a private letter ruling on April 16, 2014 with respect to certain issues relevant to the company’s qualification to be taxed as a REIT. “Achieving our independence and beginning to operate as a REIT are two important steps in our strategic transformation with significant benefits for shareholders,” said Jeremy Male, CEO. “CBS was very supportive as a parent and we thank them for the opportunity to be steering the company independently. Later this year, our rebranding will reposition the company during this exciting time in the out-of-home industry as it continues to evolve and adopt new technologies that add value and relevancy to our media.”

12:21 EDTCBSCable ad upfront volumes may drop 4% or more, WSJ says
Two of the U.S.'s biggest marketers, Procter & Gamble (PG) and General Motors (GM), have pulled back on their TV network advertising commitments in advance of the "upfront" selling season for cable networks, said The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the matter. The overall volume of ad dollars committed to cable networks during the upfront, which is still under way, could be down 4% or more from last year, people familiar with the situation said. Notable owners of cable television stations include 21st Century Fox (FOXA), Time Warner (TWX), Disney (DIS), CBS (CBS), Comcast (CMCSA), Discovery (DISCA), Viacom (VIAB), and AMC Networks (AMCX). The report added that cutbacks partly reflect a shift of tv ad budgets to digital media, including online video. Google (GOOG) has a large presence in online video with YouTube and Facebook (FB) is taking steps to grow in the area. Reference Link
