New York—Ziff Davis Media reported Monday that its first-quarter consolidated EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) increased 15% to $3.1 million from $2.7 million in the year-earlier period. The increase was primarily due to growth in Ziff's digital business.

Revenue for Ziff's Enterprise Group, which includes Baseline, eWeek and CIO Insight, declined 5% to $16 million, from $16.8 million in last year’s first quarter.
