NYT July Revenues Terrible, Even Online

NYT July Revenues Terrible, Even Online

newsies.jpgPrint revenues are in free-fall, and there doesn't seem to be a bottom. So the last thing the New York Times Company (NYT) needs is a sharp decline in digital and online ad revenue growth.

But that's exactly what happened in July: Total Internet revenues grew just 2.6% year-over-year, down from 11.7% in June; and Internet ad revenues grew just 5.5% year-over-year in July, down from 18.6% growth in June. Internet revenues accounted for 12.5% of the NYT's overall revenue in July, down from 13.4% in June.

For what it's worth, those numbers are still stellar compared to the rest of the company: Total revenues decreased 10.1% year-over-year in July, including 16.2% y/y decline in ad revenues. The New York Times Media Group revenues decreased 15.3%, while New England Media Group revenues dropped 24.5% and Regional Media Group sales dropped 18.1%.
