Decline In Newspapers Weighs On AP Earnings

Last year earnings at the Associated Press shrank significantly compared to 2015. The shrinking earnings are the result of declining newspaper readership and a stronger U.S. dollar which reduced the value of sales overseas. AP’s net income saw a 99 percent decline, from $183.6 million in 2015 to $1.6 million in 2016. It should be noted though that the 2015 profits were boosted by a one-time $165 million tax benefit. AP’s chief financial officer, Ken Dale, said, “”We feel like we’re financially stable, we have no debt and we continue to generate positive cash flow.”–Earns-Associated%20Press/id-38cbb0aaad604a01a68feaea0d4da0d7
