New York Times Company Sells Interest in Indeed.com, Nets $100 Million

It’s only Tuesday, but it has already been a pretty good week for The New York Times Company. The paper just announced that it is selling its interest in Indeed.com, a jobs site, and expects that sale to net the Times $100 million in profit. According to Reuters, the site is being sold to a Japanese recruitment firm.

The sale comes on the heels of the Times closing on its About.com deal, which saw the company pull in $300 million.

That means only two days deep into the work week and the Times has gained $400 million. Not bad at all.
