And it released no additional news on a restructuring, something I'd speculated about last month. Gannett reported earnings of $1.01 a share in the third quarter, beating Wall Street's forecast by a penny. But it missed on the top-line results: Revenue fell 4% to $1.81 billion from $1.88 billion last year. Analysts had expected $1.82 billion.
The company's statement is here. The Wall Street Journal (paid subscription required) has now filed a story, here.
I'll take a closer look at the results later, after I've had a chance to listen to the conference call with Wall Street analysts. Meanwhile, investors seem somewhat pleased; GCI shares were up slightly in early trading.
Also out today: the monthly statistical report for September, which shows slight improvement for the company's newspaper advertising revenue compared to a year ago (losses eased a bit), but a return to declines for the company's flagship, USA Today.
