Updates Q3 guidance. Management lowered Q3 revenue guidance from a range of 6% to 8% growth to a range of flat to a positive 2%. The company indicated that the lower revenue outlook was due to a shift in revenue related to the Dinesh D’Souza book slipping into Q4 and softer expectations in its SalemNow segment.
SalemNow likely disappointing. We believe that the softer revenue expectations in SalemNow is likely related to a poor performance for Uncle Tom II. We like the company’s expansion into content, which can be very lucrative, but the success of the content is hard to predict.
