History[edit] Formation[edit] On June 28, 2012, Rupert Murdoch
Rupert Murdoch
announced that News Corporation's publishing operations would be spun off to form a new, publicly traded company.[3][4] Murdoch stated that performing this split would "unlock the true value of both companies and their distinct assets, enabling investors to benefit from the separate strategic opportunities resulting from more focused management of each division." The move also came in the wake of a series of scandals that had damaged the reputation of multiple News Corporation-owned properties.[3][5] Robert James Thomson, editor of The Wall Street Journal, was announced as the initial chief operating officer for the company; while Murdoch would not serve as CEO, he remained chairman and a shareholder of the new News Corp.[3][6] Thomson promised that the new company would "cultivate a start-up sensibility even though we already work for the world's most established and prestigious diversified media and information services company", and would emphasize building new business models around its properties and content.[7] The logo of the new News Corporation
News Corporation
was unveiled at an investor presentation on May 28, 2013; the handwritten logo uses script based on Murdoch's own handwriting.[7] News Corp's board approved the split on May 24, 2013, while shareholders approved the split on June 11;[5][8][9] Preliminary trading on the Australian Securities Exchange
Australian Securities Exchange
of the new News Corp's class B stock began on June 19, 2013, at around $15 per share; a value slightly lower than expected by some analysts. The shares fell in price by 3% to $14.55 per share, valuing the new company at around $7.9 billion US.[10][11] The corporate split was finalized on June 28, 2013; during the stock splitting process, one share of the new News Corp was given to shareholders for every four shares they owned in the former News Corp.[11] The new News Corp
News Corp
began trading on the NASDAQ stock exchange under the symbol "NWS" on July 1, 2013; at the same time, the former News Corporation
News Corporation
(now consisting purely of media properties, such as Fox Entertainment Group
Fox Entertainment Group
and 20th Century Fox) was renamed 21st Century Fox.[12][13] After the split[edit] On September 4, 2013, News Corp
News Corp
announced that it would sell the Dow Jones Local Media Group, a group of 33 local newspapers, to Newcastle Investment Corp.—an affiliate of Fortress Investment Group, for $87 million. The newspapers will be operated by GateHouse Media, a newspaper group owned by Fortress. Robert Thomson indicated that the newspapers "were not strategically consistent with the emerging portfolio" of the company.[14] GateHouse then filed for prepackaged Chapter 11 bankruptcy on September 27, 2013, to restructure its debt obligations in order to accommodate the acquisition.[15] then GateHouse emerged from bankruptcy on November 26, 2013. On December 20, 2013, News Corp
News Corp
announced its acquisition of Mark Little's Storyful, a news agency specializing in verifying and distributing user-generated content relating to news events from social networking services, for $25 million, marking News Corp's first acquisition since the split. Robert Thomson stated that the service had "become the village square for valuable video, using journalistic sensibility, integrity and creativity to find, authenticate and commercialise user-generated content", and that with the purchase, News Corp
News Corp
would "define the opportunities that the digital landscape presents, rather than simply adapt to them."[16][17] On May 2, 2014, News Corp
News Corp
acquired romance novel publisher Harlequin Enterprises from Torstar
Torstar
for $415 million.[18] The deal closed on August 1; it is now operated as a subsidiary of News Corp's HarperCollins.[19] On September 30, 2014, News Corp
News Corp
announced its acquisition of Move, Inc., a real estate listings company and owner of Realtor.com. A 20% stake is owned by REA Group, a publicly traded subsidiary of News Corp
News Corp
Australia.[20] News Corp
News Corp
also began making multiple investments in India, such as a $30 million investment in real estate site ProTiger in November 2014,[21] the December 2014 purchase of BigDecisions.com, a financial planning website,[22] and the acquisition of Indian media firm VCCircle
VCCircle
in March 2015.[23] In October 2015, News Corp
News Corp
sold its digital education brand Amplify Education to a management team supported by a group of private investors for an undisclosed sum.[24] On June 2016, News Corp

acquired UK radio station group, Wireless Group

for $296 million[25][26] In February of 2018, it was announced that News Corp
