news corp-cl a (NWSA) Key Developments

News Corp To Cancel Listing On London Stock Exchange

News Corp will cancel its listing on the London Stock Exchange (LSE) due to low levels of trading volume. The company has said that less than 1% of its global stock was being traded through the LSE. The date for the delisting is June 28, 2013.

News Corp Seeks Acquisitions

News Corp. (NasdaqGS:NWSA) seeks acquisitions. News Corp. Chairman and Chief Executive Rupert Murdoch said on May 28, 2013 that the company might consider newspaper acquisitions in the U.S. "if the price were right" but those regulatory hurdles made such deals "pretty unlikely."

News Corporation Approves Split of Company; Announces Management Appointments

The board at News Corporation approved a proposed split into two companies and authorized a $500 million stock buyback for investors in the soon-to-be-formed publishing business. It also announced appointments to the board for both of the companies. The company is expected to complete its separation on June 28, with publishing assets like The Wall Street Journal, The New York Post and HarperCollins, and a handful of Australian pay television units, forming a company that will retain the name News Corporation. The announcement may do little to dispel criticism that the News Corporation board is too heavily made up of members of the Murdoch family. After the division Mr. Murdoch will serve as chairman of both companies. He will maintain his role as chief executive of 21st Century Fox. Mr. Murdoch's two sons, James and Lachlan, will be directors of both companies. But the boards will also include new faces. Robert Thomson, as chief executive of the new News Corporation, will join the publishing company's board, as will Ana Paula Pessoa, a partner at the public relations firm Brunswick Group; Masroor Siddiqui, managing partner of the investment firm Naya Management; and John Elkann, chairman of Fiat. Joel I. Klein, chief executive of News Corporation's fledgling Amplify education division, will maintain a role on the company's board. Chase Carey, president and chief operating officer of 21st Century Fox, will join several new directors - Delphine Arnault, a French businesswoman and deputy general manager at Christian Dior Couture; Jacques Nasser, a former chief executive of the Ford Motor Company; and Robert S. Silberman, executive chairman of Strayer Education Incorporated on the entertainment company's board.
