"I am pleased that we were able to deliver on our full-year expectations, despite a tougher than expected external environment in the fourth quarter," said James C. Smith , chief executive officer of Thomson Reuters.

"More importantly, we took significant strides to position the company to thrive in future years. Our transformation initiatives are taking hold, costs are coming out and innovation is coming forth. Specifically, the charge we announced for 2013-14 is just one necessary element of the changes we have put in place to enable us to drive growth across the enterprise," said Mr. Smith.

"While the external headwinds were stronger than anticipated at year-end, particularly in Europe and the emerging markets, I am pleased with the progress we continued to make inside the company and with our customers. I am confident this progress will accelerate in 2014."

Declines in IFRS operating profit and diluted EPS were due to previously announced charges and significantly higher prior-year gains related to divestitures, which were $829 million in 2012 versus $195 million in 2013. 2012 divestitures included the Healthcare business and 2013 divestitures included the Corporate Services business. Additionally, the company recorded $836 million in tax charges in 2013 related to the consolidation of its technology and content assets. The decline in cash flow from operations was principally due to a $500 million pension contribution in the fourth quarter of 2013.

    Business Outlook (Before Currency)

    Thomson Reuters today issued its business outlook for 2014. The company expects:

    • revenues to be comparable to 2013;
    • adjusted EBITDA margin to range between 26% and 27%;
    • underlying operating profit margin to range between 17.0% and 18.0%; and
    • free cash flow to range between $1.3 billion and $1.5 billion in 2014.

    In October 2013 , the company stated that it planned to take a charge of approximately $350 million , most of which would be reflected in fourth-quarter 2013 results, with a portion reflected in 2014. The aggregate amount of the charge is now expected to be approximately $395 million , $275 million of which was incurred in 2013. The company's 2014 Outlook includes the impact of $120 million of charges expected to be incurred this year. The free cash flow Outlook for 2014 reflects the estimated impact of the charges incurred in 2013 and 2014 as well as the impact of the loss of free cash flow from disposals (approximately $375 million in aggregate). The information in this section is forward-looking and should be read in conjunction with the section below entitled "Special Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements, Material Assumptions and Material Risks."

    Dividend and Share Repurchases

    The board of directors approved a $0.02 per share annualized increase in the dividend to $1.32 per share. A quarterly dividend of $0.33 per share is payable on March 17, 2014 to common shareholders of record as of February 24, 2014 . This dividend increase marks the 21st consecutive annual dividend increase by the company.

    In 2013, the company returned approximately $400 million to shareholders through the repurchase of approximately 10.9 million shares. Approximately $300 million of these repurchases in the fourth quarter of 2013 were part of the company's previously announced plans to repurchase up to $1 billion of its shares by the end of 2014.

    (2) Revenues from ongoing businesses are revenues from reportable segments and Corporate & Other (which includes Reuters News) less eliminations. Other Businesses (see note (3) below) are excluded.

    (3) Other Businesses are businesses that have been or are expected to be exited through sale or closure that did not qualify for discontinued operations classification.

    (4) Thomson Reuters defines adjusted EBITDA as underlying operating profit excluding the related depreciation and amortization of computer software. Adjusted EBITDA margin is adjusted EBITDA expressed as a percentage of revenues from ongoing businesses.

    (5) Underlying operating profit is operating profit from reportable segments and Corporate & Other (includes Reuters News). Underlying operating profit margin is the underlying operating profit expressed as a percentage of revenues from ongoing businesses.

    (6) Adjusted earnings and adjusted earnings per share include dividends declared on preference shares and amortization of the tax charges associated with the consolidation of technology and content assets but exclude the pre-tax impacts of amortization of other identifiable intangible assets as well as the post-tax impacts of fair value adjustments, other operating (gains) and losses, certain impairment charges, the results of Other Businesses (see note (3) above), other finance (income) costs, Thomson Reuters share of post-tax (earnings) losses in equity method investments, discontinued operations and other items affecting comparability. Adjusted earnings per share is calculated using diluted weighted-average shares and does not represent actual earnings or loss per share attributable to shareholders.

    Because Thomson Reuters reported a net loss from continuing operations under IFRS for the three months ended December 31, 2013 , the weighted average number of common shares used for basic and diluted loss per share is the same, as the effect of stock options and other equity incentive awards would reduce the loss per share, and therefore be anti-dilutive. Since our non-IFRS measure "adjusted earnings" is a profit, potential common shares are included, as they lower adjusted EPS and are therefore dilutive.

    The following table reconciles IFRS and non-IFRS common share information:

    (weighted average common shares)

    Three Months Ended

    December 31, 2013



    IFRS: Basic and Diluted

    Effect of stock options and other equity incentive awards

    3,355,232

    Non- IFRS

    828,625,731

    (7) Adjustment to reflect income taxes based on estimated full-year effective tax rate. Reported earnings or loss for interim periods reflect income taxes based on the estimated effective tax rates of each of the jurisdictions in which Thomson Reuters operates. The adjustment reallocates estimated full-year income taxes between interim periods, but has no effect on full-year income taxes.

    (8) Reflects amortization of the tax charges associated with the consolidation of the ownership and management of technology and content assets. For the non-IFRS measure, the majority of the charges are amortized over seven years, the period over which the tax is expected to be paid.

    (9) Free cash flow is net cash provided by operating activities less capital expenditures, other investing activities and dividends paid on the company's preference shares. Other Businesses (see note (3) above) are also removed to arrive at free cash flow from ongoing businesses.
