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.

News Corp profit down 53%
[AAP] - News Corporation's full year profit has been more than halved as revenue from its Australian newspapers continues to slide.

News Corp Opposed Google’s European Commission Settlement Offer; Welcomed Competition Commission Reconsideration
[Business Wire] - NEW YORK--(BUSINESSWIRE)-- Early last week, in a letter to European Commissioner for Competition Joaquín Almunia, News Corp Chief Executive Robert Thomson opposed Google’s settlement offer with the European Commission, saying the internet giant is “willing to exploit its dominant market position to stifle competition.” Mr. Thomson said News Corp also opposed the proposed five year term of a settlement, noting that “five years is an eternity in internet time.” Citing Google’s “egregious aggregation” of content, Mr. Thomson said that, along with serious commercial damage, there is a “profound social cost” to Google’s actions. "Your decision to reconsider Google's settlement offer comes at a crucial moment in the history of the free flow of information and of a healthy media in Europe and beyond," Mr. Thomson wrote.

In Britain, Rupert Murdoch's The Sun tabloid drops topless models -report
[Reuters - UK Focus] - Britain's The Sun tabloid, the country's best-selling newspaper, has decided to quietly stop publishing photographs of topless models on page three, ending a contested 44-year-old tradition of the Rupert Murdoch-owned paper, The Times reported on Tuesday. The Sun, owned by a subsidiary of the media tycoon's News Corp, has published photographs of young models baring their breasts on page three since 1970, drawing criticism from feminists who said the practice demeaned and objectified women. Without naming its sources, The Times, which is also part of Murdoch's British newspaper empire, said it understood that last Friday's printed edition of The Sun would be the final publication to carry a photograph of a topless model. Such models would only appear on the paper's website from now on, it said, while scantily clad but not topless models would appear in the paper in future.

UK's Sun drops topless "Page Three girls" after campaign
[Reuters - UK Focus] - British newspaper The Sun has ended a 45-year tradition of picturing topless models on page three, scrapping a daily feature denounced by women's rights groups since the tabloid launched it in the early years of Rupert Murdoch's ownership. Murdoch had staunchly defended "Page Three girls" for decades. The Times, also owned by Murdoch's News Corp, reported that The Sun had decided to quietly drop Page Three girls and that the tycoon had signed off on the decision. Supporters of the "No More Page Three" campaign hailed the change as a step forward for gender equality in Britain.
