THIRD QUARTER RESULTS

The Company reported fiscal 2024 third quarter total revenues of $2.42 billion, a 1% decrease compared to $2.45 billion in the prior year period, primarily driven by lower advertising revenues at the News Media segment, lower physical book sales at the Book Publishing segment and lower revenues at Move due to ongoing challenging housing market conditions in the U.S., in addition to a $21 million, or 1%, negative impact from foreign currency fluctuations. The decrease was partly offset by higher Australian residential revenues at REA Group and continued strong growth in the professional information business at the Dow Jones segment. Adjusted Revenues (which excludes the foreign currency impact, acquisitions and divestitures as defined in Note 2) were flat compared to the prior year.

Net income for the quarter was $42 million, a 29% decrease compared to net income of $59 million in the prior year, primarily driven by lower Other, net, which benefited in the prior year from a gain on sale, higher impairment and restructuring charges and higher depreciation and amortization expenses. These impacts were partially offset by lower income tax expense and improved equity losses of affiliates.

The Company reported third quarter Total Segment EBITDA of $322 million, a 1% increase compared to $320 million in the prior year primarily due to strong contributions from REA Group and the Dow Jones segment combined with lower costs at the Book Publishing segment and gross cost savings related to the announced 5% headcount reduction initiative. The increase was largely offset by the lower revenue drivers discussed above and higher marketing costs at Move. Adjusted Total Segment EBITDA (as defined in Note 2) increased 1%.

Net income per share attributable to 糖心vlog会员oration stockholders was $0.05 as compared to $0.09 in the prior year.

Adjusted EPS (as defined in Note 3) were $0.11 compared to $0.09 in the prior year.
