Dow Jones saw 20% growth in digital-only subscribers to over 2.5 million, including 15% growth in digital-only subscribers at The Wall Street Journal, while experiencing record traffic across its digital networks

NEW YORK, NY – May 7, 2020 – News Corporation (“News Corp” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: NWS, NWSA; ASX: NWS, NWSLV) today reported financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

Commenting on the results, Chief Executive Robert Thomson said:

“We are operating in a different, difficult time. Every business and family is facing challenges and our thoughts, in particular, are for those who are suffering deeply and personally from the impact of COVID-19.

Our fiscal third quarter results demonstrate the strength of News Corp and the power of our premium content. We also maintained a robust balance sheet, with $1.4 billion in cash and cash equivalents as of March 31st and an untapped $750 million corporate revolving credit facility, providing a strong foundation for the Company’s future.

Despite the onset of COVID-19, and particularly volatile, adverse currency movements, profitability was relatively stable. Notably, profitability was higher at the News and Information Services segment, fueled by significant digital advertising and subscriber growth at Dow Jones, including The Wall Street Journal, which reached approximately 3 million subscribers in the last week, a new record, with over 2.2 million that are digital-only.

The sale of News America Marketing was completed on May 5th and we are continuing to simplify our Company to highlight the intrinsic value of our core businesses, including the strategic review of our Australian newspaper holdings, focusing on our larger brands and our digital reach.

Clearly the pandemic will have an impact on our results in the Fourth Quarter, but all of our businesses are embarking on cost-cutting programs intended to deal with short-term need but also to ensure that the Company is well-equipped to prosper in a decidedly different business environment after the crisis abates.

There will obviously be an impact on executive compensation, and it is worth noting that bonuses are often the largest cash component for our senior executives. Pay reductions will be led by our Executive Chairman, Rupert
