Gannett Co., Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter and 2007 Full-Year Results

Gannett Co., Inc. (NYSE: GCI) reported today that 2007 fourth quarter earnings per diluted share from continuing operations were $1.06 compared with $1.47 per share in the fourth quarter of 2006, including the impact of a non-cash, after-tax impairment charge related to the value of mastheads of $50.8 million or $0.22 per diluted share. Excluding this charge, earnings per share from continuing operations would have been $1.28. The results for the quarter also include approximately $38 million in pre-tax severance expenses and facility consolidation costs related to a number of efficiency efforts in the U.S. and the UK.

Gannett completed 2007 with strong forward momentum on implementing our strategic plan. That is an impressive accomplishment given the back drop of cyclical pressures on advertising, a softer economic environment and secular changes in the industry, said Craig Dubow, chairman, president and CEO of Gannett.

In the fourth quarter, we faced a challenging advertising environment, tough comparisons, which included an extra week in 2006, and the relative absence of election-related advertising in broadcasting. Our effort to align expenses with revenue opportunities will better position us for the future although it resulted in significant severance expenses and consolidation costs in the quarter. Our online revenue growth contributed to our results for the quarter. Lower newsprint costs and interest expense, and the exchange rate also had a positive impact. he added.

The company completed its annual impairment testing of goodwill and other intangible assets in accordance with the Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 142 as of December 30, 2007. Due to the current business environment and expected operating results for some recent acquisitions in the U.S. and in the UK, the company incurred a $72.0 million pre-tax, non-cash impairment charge to reduce the value of certain mastheads. This non-cash accounting charge does not impact our operations or operating cash flow, Dubow said.

Gannetts fiscal year included 52 weeks compared with 53 weeks in 2006. The fourth quarter was comprised of 13 weeks compared with 14 weeks in the same quarter of 2006. All of the companys results detailed below were impacted by the extra week in 2006.

As previously reported, the company completed the divestiture of five of its newspaper properties in May of 2007. Operating results for the year exclude results from these properties which have been reclassified to income from discontinued operations.

Reported results for the quarter and the year include KTVD-TV in Denver and WATL-TV in Atlanta which the company acquired during the third quarter of 2006.

CONTINUING OPERATIONS

Total operating revenues for the company were $1.9 billion in the fourth quarter compared to $2.2 billion in the 14-week fourth quarter of 2006, an 11.9 percent decline. The decline is due to lower newspaper advertising resulting from cyclical pressures in our markets, significantly lower politically related advertising demand that positively impacted results last year and the extra week in the fourth quarter of 2006. Excluding the extra week, total operating revenues would have been 7.2 percent lower. Operating cash flow (defined as operating income plus depreciation, amortization and the non-cash charge) was $554.0 million. Net income was $245.3 million in the quarter.

Reported operating expenses were 7.1 percent lower and totaled $1.5 billion for the quarter reflecting lower newsprint expense, continued cost containment efforts and the absence of the extra week in 2006. Expense reductions were partially offset by severance and accelerated depreciation expenses related to a number of efficiency efforts in the UK and U.S. and the higher exchange rate for the British pound. Operating expenses would have declined 11.6 percent excluding the non-cash charge. Corporate expenses declined 17.8 percent to $17.9 million compared with the fourth quarter of 2006.

For the year, total operating revenues were $7.4 billion compared to $7.8 billion in 2006, a 5.2 percent decline. On a comparable week basis, pro forma operating revenues would have been down 4.2 percent reflecting the relative absence of approximately $112 million of Olympic and politically related ad revenues and a more challenging advertising environment. Operating expenses were $5.8 billion, down 2.6 percent from the prior year. Excluding the non-cash impairment charge, operating expenses would have been 3.8 percent lower. Expense reductions for the full year were tempered by severance and accelerated depreciation costs of approximately $65 million related to our efficiency efforts. Operating cash flow totaled $2.0 billion and net income was $975.6 million for the year.

Average diluted shares outstanding in the fourth quarter totaled 231,877,000 compared with 234,790,000 in 2006s fourth quarter. Average diluted shares outstanding for all of 2007 were 233,740,000 versus 236,756,000 in 2006. Shares repurchased totaled approximately 2.0 million in the fourth quarter and 4.8 million year-to-date.

NEWSPAPERS

Newspaper segment operating revenues were $1.7 billion for the quarter. Advertising revenues totaled $1.2 billion compared to $1.4 billion in the fourth quarter a year ago. Pro forma advertising revenues excluding the extra week would have declined 7.7 percent. On the same basis, local advertising revenues would have been 3.3 percent lower, national ad revenues would have declined 11.6 percent and classified revenues would have been down 11.4 percent. Advertising revenues at our domestic newspaper properties would have been 9.3 percent lower on a comparable week basis. At Newsquest in the UK, advertising revenues on a constant currency basis were 6.5 percent lower excluding the extra week in 2006. Operating cash flow for the total newspaper segment, which includes USA TODAY and our UK properties, was $468.2 million in the fourth quarter.

Total newspaper operating expenses were 6.5 percent lower for the quarter reflecting lower newsprint expense, cost control and the extra week in last years quarter partially offset by approximately $38 million in severance and facility consolidation costs and the non-cash charge. Newspaper operating expenses would have been 11.5 percent lower excluding the impairment charge. Reported newsprint expense declined 25.3 percent for the quarter due to usage prices that were 8 percent lower and almost 19 percent lower volume, reflecting generally reduced consumption and the effect of the extra week in 2006.

At USA TODAY, advertising revenues were 16.7 percent lower in the fourth quarter compared with the same quarter a year ago due in part to the extra week in 2006. On a comparable week basis USA TODAYs advertising revenues would have been down 12.7 percent. Paid advertising pages totaled 1,045 compared with 1,348 in the year-ago quarter and 1,285 based on a 13-week quarter in 2006.

BROADCASTING

Broadcasting segment results for the quarter and year include WATL-TV (acquired in August 2006) and KTVD-TV (acquired in June 2006).

Broadcasting revenues (which include Captivate) totaled $212.0 million for the quarter, a 21.7 percent decline due primarily to the relative lack of politically related ad demand that totaled almost $58 million last year as well as the extra week in the fourth quarter in 2006. Broadcasting revenues excluding the extra week would have been 18.0 percent lower. Online revenues were 18.0 percent higher in the quarter compared to the same period a year ago. The growth rate of online revenue was tempered by the absence of the extra week in the quarter. Reported broadcasting expenses were 11.3 percent lower. Operating cash flow was $99.9 million.

Revenues for television operations were $202.2 million for the quarter. Reported television expenses totaled $113.0 million compared to $128.5 million for the same period a year ago, a 12.1 percent decline.

NON-OPERATING ITEMS

Beginning with this report, the companys equity share of operating results from its newspaper partnerships, including Tucson, which participates in a joint operating agency, the California Newspapers Partnership and the Texas-New Mexico Newspapers Partnership, have been reclassified from Other revenue and are now reflected as Equity income in unconsolidated investees, net in the non-operating section of the Consolidated Statements of Income. This line also includes equity income and losses from online/new technology businesses which were previously classified in Other non-operating items. Other revenue is now comprised principally of commercial printing revenues and revenue from PointRoll.

All prior periods presented reflect these reclassifications. A schedule detailing the impact of the reclassifications for the last two years on a quarterly basis has been included in the press release.

The decline in equity income in unconsolidated investees for the fourth quarter in 2007 reflects lower newspaper partnership earnings and operating results from a new Internet partnership.

Interest expense for the fourth quarter was $57.5 million, a 29.0 percent decline compared to $80.9 million for the year-ago quarter. The decline was due to lower average balances and lower interest rates.

Other non-operating income was $2.7 million for the quarter compared to $10.9 million in the same quarter a year ago due primarily to the absence of gains on the sale of some Internet investments in the fourth quarter of 2006.

At the end of the quarter, Gannett had more than 100 domestic publishing Web sites, including USATODAY.com, one of the most popular newspaper sites on the Web. The company also had Web sites in all of its 19 television markets. In December, Gannetts consolidated domestic Internet audience share was 23.9 million unique visitors reaching 14.5 percent of the Internet audience according to Nielsen//NetRatings. Newsquest is also an Internet leader in the UK where its network of Web sites attracted more than 62 million monthly page impressions from approximately 4.8 million unique users.

All references in this release to comparable revenue results and operating cash flow are to non-GAAP financial measures. Management believes that this use allows management and investors to analyze and compare the Companys results in a more meaningful and consistent manner. A reconciliation of the non-GAAP operating cash flow amounts to the Companys consolidated statements of income is attached.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL INFORMATION
Gannett Co., Inc. and Subsidiaries
Unaudited, in thousands of dollars (except per share amounts)
"Operating cash flow", a non-GAAP measure, is defined as operating income plus depreciation, amortization, and impairment of intangible assets. Management believes that use of this measure allows investors and management to measure, analyze and compare the performance of its business segment operations at a more detailed level and in a meaningful and consistent manner.
A reconciliation of these non-GAAP amounts to the company's operating income, which the company believes is the most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP on the company's consolidated statements of income, follows:

In addition to the results reported in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP") included in this press release, the company has provided information regarding diluted earnings per share ("EPS") from continuing operations excluding the impairment charge.  Management believes EPS excluding the impairment charge better reflects the ongoing performance of the company and enables management and investors to meaningfully trend, analyze and benchmark the performance of the company's operations.  This measure is also more comparable to financial measures reported by our competitors.  EPS excluding the impairment charge should not be considered a substitute for EPS calculated in accordance with GAAP.
