San Antonio, November 9, 2016 – Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: CCO) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016.
“In this quarter, our Americas and International outdoor businesses continued to invest in building programmatic buying platforms and developing new research analytics tools to help ensure our place with our advertisers in an increasingly digital world” said Bob Pittman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. “To stay as competitive as possible, we believe it’s critical to do business with advertising and marketing partners in the same way that the digital advertising industry does today. And, we continue to invest in our digital out-of-home network to expand our ability to offer innovative solutions to our marketing partners.”
“International outdoor delivered growth in both revenues and operating income,” said Rich Bressler, Chief Financial Officer. “Americas outdoor revenue and operating income declined due to the sale of nine non-strategic markets. Excluding the sale, Americas outdoor revenues increased.”
