NEW YORK, 29 luglio 2010 - Thomson Reuters (TSX / NYSE: TRI), leader al mondo nella fornitura di informazioni per aziende e professionisti, ha reso oggi noti i risultati del secondo trimestre conclusosi il 30 giug no 2010. La società ha riferito ricavi continuativi pari a $ 3.2 miliardi, utili di gestione sottostanti pari a $ 655 milioni, un margine operativo del 20,4% e free cash flow sottostante pari a $ 751 milioni.

"I am pleased with the continuing progress the company has made in the first half of the year. While our markets are only slowly improving, we have seen accelerating results in terms of revenues, net sales and customer uptake of our new products," said Thomas H. Glocer, chief executive officer of Thomson Reuters. "Based on these encouraging trends, we expect that Thomson Reuters will return to revenue growth in the third quarter."

"We attribute our expected return to growth to our decision not to cut investment in innovation and new product platforms in 2010. While investments in the launch of products like WestlawNext, Thomson Reuters Eikon and the ONESOURCE global tax workstation are still expected to suppress margins by some 100 basis points in 2010, they will enable us to drive growth, strengthen our competitive position and improve margins for years to come."

- Revenues from ongoing businesses were $3.2 billion, a decrease of 2% after currency and a decrease of 1% before currency. Good growth in Enterprise, Legal's subscription businesses and Tax & Accounting was offset by expected softness in Legal print and non-subscription revenues and a decline in Sales & Trading and Investment & Advisory revenues due to flow-through from prior-year negative net sales.

- Underlying operating profit declined 17%, attributable to lower revenues, product mix, previously announced investments and unfavorable currency movements. Underlying operating profit declined 12% before currency.

- Adjusted EPS was $0.47 compared to $0.58 in the prior-year period. The decline was largely attributable to lower underlying operating profit.

- Underlying free cash flow was 36;751 million, a decline of 11% versus the prior-year period.

- Integration and legacy savings programs continue to progress well, achieving run-rate savings of $1.3 billion towards a previously announced goal of $1.6 billion of run-rate savings by the end of 2011.
