New York Times Co. is out with April sales figures, and the news wasn’t good. Ad sales dropped 3.6 percent as total revenue declined 2.2 percent. Even worse, though expected, online ad sales growth continues to slow, with a rise of 15.6 percent in the month, compared to almost 20 percent in March and 26 percent in January.
Web traffic at NYT rose 12 percent from a year earlier to 42.9 million uniques – not exactly meteoric, but in line with expectations. The company had warned last month about lower-than-expected online sales growth, especially at its About unit.
