Benchmark Co. analysts commented, "We note that our broadcast universe is likely to report automotive ad spend down low-mid-single digits in 1Q, with some seeing deterioration towards down mid-single digits in 2Q. While this historically might be viewed as a positive for the digital space, we continue to hear that uncertainty from the top of the funnel (tier 1/OEM) is filtering all the way down to the local (tier 3) level, with digital the easiest channel to reduce and reinstate as needed. Furthermore, we suspect shares may be facing incremental pressure following 2 broad-based Google (GOOG:Not Rated) algorithm changes in the past month, with our search checks indicating that, while early, at least the April update appeared to be slightly more than routine.
