According to a statement, “FY19 Group net cost reduction will be at the top end of the $30 million to $40 million range provided at the 2019 Half Year Results in February.

“Seven has grown revenue share this financial year, including a 41.3% share of the metro FTA market and 42.5% share of BVOD market in April, however, this revised guidance reflects the soft conditions and short market experienced across the advertising sector, and the economic uncertainty surrounding the Federal Election.
