17:26 EDTNWSANews Corp. to take $1.2B-$1.4B charge in Q4 related to publishing segment
On May 24, News Corporation disclosed in a regulatory filing that it concluded that certain of its goodwill and intangible assets were potentially impaired and that it expects to record a pre-tax non-cash impairment charge in the range of $1.2B-$1.4B in Q4 related to its publishing segment. The company tests goodwill for impairment on an annual basis in Q4 and at other times if a significant event or change in circumstances indicates that it is more likely than not that the fair value of these assets has been reduced. During Q4, the Company adjusted its future outlook and related strategy principally with respect to the Australian publishing business and secondarily with respect to the U.S. publishing businesses which resulted in a reduction in expected future cash flows. As a result, the company determined that the fair value of these reporting units declined below their respective carrying values and expects to record an impairment charge in the quarter. Additionally, goodwill and intangible assets in the publishing segment continue to be at risk for future impairment.

News Corp and Move, Inc. announced that News Corp has agreed to acquire Move. REA Group Limited, which is 61.6% owned by News Corp and is the operator of Australian residential property website, realestate.com.au, plans to hold a 20% stake in Move with 80% held by News Corp. Under the acquisition agreement, which has been unanimously approved by the board of Move, News Corp will acquire all the outstanding shares of Move for $21 per share, or approximately $950M, via an all-cash tender offer. This represents a premium of 37% over Move’s closing stock price on September 29, 2014. REA’s share will be acquired for approximately $200M. News Corp intends to commence a tender offer for all of the shares of common stock of Move within 10 business days, followed by a merger to acquire any untendered shares. News Corp. CEO Robert Thomson said, "In addition to boosting Move’s subscription, advertising and software services, this acquisition will give News Corp a significant marketing platform for our media assets, which will benefit from the high-quality geographic data generated by real estate searches. We certainly expect this deal to amount to far more than the sum of the parts.” For the year ended December 31, 2013, Move reported $227M in revenues, and $29M in adjusted EBITDA5, and generated the highest revenue per unique user in the industry. Move will become an operating business of News Corp and remain headquartered in San Jose, California.
