1 Report st Quarter Release - Johannesburg 14 May 2014

2 General Local Developments: Media Inflation Watch Up-date 2013 Media Inflation Watch revealed Radio as the most aggressive platform from a rate perspective; up 11.54% yoy. With declining circulation, however, and an absence of support / research from the key players in print, the published inflation data must be raising value concerns.

3 AMPS / JIC’s and the rest! With the latest AMPS hot into the market, many marketers and perhaps publishers have perhaps taken their collective eye off the future of what will become of AMPS in its new “establishment” survey role. PAMS has still to be agreed, it’s content decided and funding issues remain the elephant in the room. What is clear is that the TV broadcasters are now driving the process and even siblings such as radio appear now to be an afterthought. Print has a powerful story to tell as proven over the passing of Nelson Mandela and recently demonstrated via Millward Brown’s independent research. Print research going forward must demonstrate the value of print and not just the quantum. Value is determined by return on investment and not just the rates charged.. Finally, in respect of the research, we should remember that digital is the new print ink, and not a competitor. The future for print in Africa will be a combination of both written delivery methods.

4 International Developments: Print “Only” readership holding its own in the USA A new analysis (Feb 2014) of the most recent newspaper audience reports suggests a surprising split in reading habits. Digital audience continues to grow. Mobile audience is growing quickly. Mobile-only audience, though much smaller, has grown to 7 million. Yet more than half of newspaper audience — 54 percent still read their local paper’s news report only in print. The daily circulation gains (+3%) however were entirely driven by digital gains at the largest newspapers. Sunday gains also reflected the heavy use of “Sunday Select” products — packets of inserts to non-subscribers — by larger papers.

5 Rule Amendments effective 1st January 2014: PDF Replica Editions: Paid Circulation – circulation is counted when payment is received. Bulk sales – The publisher must prove distribution in terms of a list provided by the purchaser – limited to 10% of total paid circulation. Free bulk distribution is excluded.

54 Observations: With the elections behind us we should remember that circulation remains “democracy in print”; perhaps the most accurate expression of public support” available for publisher and advertiser scrutiny and decision making. The results that you have seen this morning should be scrutinized and the implications understood fully by all stakeholders. Within each segment there are winners as well as titles where there is room for improvement. Decisions and negotiations going forward should be based on such objective performance results. Press:  Daily Newspaper performance remains promising as results show consistency with Q It is interesting to point out that inland circulations dropped unexpectedly. However Daily Dispatch jumped 18% and Isolezwe was up 11% on Q  Weeklies, The slide continues down a further 2.5% on 2013 Q4.  Weekend titles dropped only 1.8% albeit Afrikaans titles faired worse than their English or vernacular counterparts.  The Local and free newspapers category grew over the period with strong growth in particular from the Review Midweek.

55 Magazines:  The overall performance of the magazine category suggest stability. This is not true. There were more closures than new entrants. This combination obscures the results.  Specific highlights include:  The travel category jumped copies since Q  Discontinued titles in the Woman’s General category resulted in the category reflecting a decline. -In the Business 2 Business segment, the circulation declined marginally. That said, Business Brief jumped 62% year on year which is a remarkable performance given its target market. -Custom magazines continue to grow, up copies compared to Q Growth was as expected industry specific. Taxi Talk jumped 394%, while retail titles remained fairly static. -Free magazines declined 10% on 2013 Q4 In summary newspapers continue to perform relatively better than magazines, which given the prophets of a digital apocalypse seems counter intuitive. What remains clear is that relevant content remains king…irrespective of the channel.
