Fiscal 2020 second quarter net earnings attributable to WBA decreased 18.2 percent to $946 million compared with the same quarter a year ago, while net earnings per share1 decreased 14.0 percent to $1.07 compared with the same quarter a year ago. Sales in the second quarter were $35.8 billion, an increase of 3.7 percent from the year-ago quarter, and an increase of 4.1 percent on a constant currency basis. Effects from the COVID-19 pandemic began at the end of the second quarter and were not material to overall results. Compared to the same quarter a year ago, operating income was $1.2 billion, a decrease of 18.7 percent, and adjusted operating income was $1.7 billion, a decrease of 12.0 percent, on both a reported and constant currency basis, reflecting lower U.S. pharmacy gross margin and year-over-year bonus changes, partially offset by cost savings from the Transformational Cost Management Program.
Local magazines can carve out distinct regional niches, while broadening their digital appeal. That’s the case with the glossy bimonthly ‘Table’ magazine.
Based in Pittsburgh, it includes two special editions — “Celebrations,” about weddings, and “Recipe Book,” that showcases regional recipes — as well as a sleek, user-friendly site.
The latest twist on the nearly 14-year-old magazine: It has new owners: Keith Recker, Table’s editor in chief, and Justin Matase, associate publisher for the Pittsburgh City Paper. Financial details were not disclosed, but the two bought the magazine from former owner Christina French, who will remain as a consultant through 2020.
Recker is looking to expand Table and generate more revenue with added digital content and food events, such as its Western Pennsylvania Lamb Cook-Off/Lamb Fest.
