Speaking of McGraw-Hill’s information and media division, Harold “Terry” McGraw III, chairman and president-CEO of McGraw-Hill, said in a statement: “Platts, our worldwide energy information service, again turned in solid results, but only partially offset declines in print and television advertising.”

Revenue for the information and media segment declined 10.1% to $238.9 million compared with the same period last year.

McGraw-Hill’s b-to-b group saw its third-quarter revenue decrease 8.7% to $219.8 million. McGraw said that the company anticipated “a projected $0.02 per share gain ($9.3 million pretax and $5.9 million after tax) from the sale of BusinessWeek in the fourth quarter.”
