STOCKHOLM: Cision reported $39.4 million in operating revenue for the quarter ending in September, an 18% decrease from $48.2 million from the same period last year.
The company said in its earnings statement that divestments and acquisitions during the year reduced operating revenue by $6.8 million and changes in exchange rates by nearly $300,000, compared to the same period last year.
Total operating revenue for the year so far is $128 million, down 25% percent from $172 million the same time period last year.

“In North America, margins remain at a very solid level and in Cision Europe, the turn-around is progressing according to plan following the divestments of loss-making monitor units and improvements in underlying operations,” said Cision CEO Hans Gieskes in the report.
