Gannett, publisher of USA Today, said its fourth-quarter earnings would likely be in line with Wall Street forecasts.
The media company, which publishes about 90 daily U.S. newspapers, expects fourth-quarter earnings to be at the higher end of a range of $1.46 to $1.49 a share.
Analysts on average expect the company to earn $1.49 a share, excluding special items, according to Reuters Estimates.
Along with other publishers, Gannett has made a bigger push into the Internet in the hope of offsetting a decline in circulation at traditional newspapers. Gannett said advertising should increase at USATODAY.com by 18% to 20% next year.
