Analyst Note

| Brian Han |

We lift our fair value estimate on News Corporation by 10% to USD 19.00 per share, or AUD 25.70, at current exchange rates. Quality of the group’s 53% rise in fiscal 2022 first-quarter adjusted EBITDA to USD 412 million is difficult to ignore, with every segment posting stellar growth despite cycling a demanding 21% rise a year ago. The record quarterly earnings exceeded the then USD 360 million record achieved in the prepandemic first quarter of fiscal 2019, even after adjusting for the contributions from recently acquired IBD and HMH (USD 6 million each).
