A Nine Entertainment Company spokesman has declined to comment on media industry claims that the recent cyber attack has cost it several hundred thousand dollars in lost radio advertising revenue. The spokesman says there has been "minimal impact" on ad bookings; however, Nine is believed to still be having problems with the ad booking and placement system for its radio stations, and some of Nine’s clients are said to have placed ads with rival radio broadcasters since the cyber attack occured in late March.

Nine Entertainment Company has informed staff that its technology teams have made "remarkable progress" in restoring its key operational systems in the wake of a major cyber attack. However, the media giant has advised that it will be some time before all systems are fully restored, and many employees have been asked to keep working from home. Cybersecurity experts have estimated that the attack could potentially cost Nine more than $1m. It disrupted Nine’s broadcast operations in Sydney, as well as the print editions of its newspapers.
