News Corp Denied Rumors About Acquisition Talks

News Corp. denied reports about its discussions with Tribune Company or Los Angeles Times Communications, LLC for a potential acquisition. News Corp. said that the news about the acquisition talks is wholly inaccurate.

News Corp Reportedly Eyes Chicago Tribune, LA Times

News Corp. is looking to acquire Chicago Tribune Company, Inc. and Los Angeles Times Communications, LLC from Tribune Company, the Times reported. The talks for the deal are reportedly in early stages, the Times reported citing sources it did not identify. There are reportedly other parties as well which have expressed interest in taking over the two newspapers, the report said. The possible purchase would have to pass regulatory review and the Federal Communications Commission prohibits owners of television stations to own newspapers in the same market, as it reduces healthy business competition. This could derail the deal or force the companies to carve out a deal that would pass muster.

News Corp. Reportedly To Auction IGN Entertainment

News Corp. plans to auction IGN Entertainment, Inc. after News Corp's initial sale efforts failed to produce a deal, according to people involved on both sides of the negotiations. Allen & Co has been appointed as advisor for News Corp. People added that the deal might fetch around $100 million. Break Media, SAY Media, Inc. and other providers of digital content have expressed some interest in the sales process, people familiar with the matter said. People also said that other potential bidders could include private equity funds.

Federal govt pension overhaul on the cards

[Other] - Tens of thousands of retirees could be better off under a federal government plan to overhaul the age pension. Changes will be made to the amount of assets someone can hold before they start losing their pension and the rate at which the payment drops, News Corp reported on Thursday. "More than 90 per cent or 3.7 million pensioners and other Australians who receive pension-linked payments will either be better off or have no change to their arrangements under these new proposals," Social Services Minister Scott Morrison told the newspaper. Couples who don't own property and hold assets worth up to $699,000 would also win from the changes.

Old Media's Online Ads Dilemma

[at Bloomberg] - News Corp., the pale shadow of the company (most of which is now Twenty-First Century Fox Inc.) that is home to Rupert Murdoch's legacy print businesses plus a few other odds and ends , had a tough earnings report Wednesday. Net income fell 52 percent from the same quarter a year earlier, and both it and revenue disappointed Wall Street. As a company that gets 57 percent of its revenue from outside the U.S. yet reports in dollars, News Corp. could blame the strong greenback for some of that disappointment. Still, for a text-centric media company with roots that go back to the 18th century , going nowhere actually isn't bad.
