FRANKFURT (Reuters) - German broadcaster ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE (PSMGn.DE) on Monday warned that TV advertising revenues in German-language markets would decline in the third quarter but it upheld its full-year profit guidance thanks to a better performance in other divisions.
Revenue at the Broadcasting German-speaking segment would decline by a mid-single digit percentage year-on-year, where it had previously predicted an improvement, the company said in a statement.
The company reaffirmed its target for full-year adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) and adjusted net income to exceed the prior year’s level, banking on improved advertising trends in the fourth quarter.
It added it was seeing a continued positive development of its TV distribution, content production and digital activities in the third quarter/
