IPC Media announced yesterday it had ended the ‘divestment process’that led it to sell off 20 magazines over the course of the last ten weeks to smaller, independent publishing houses.
Britain’s biggest magazine company took the decision to dispose of around a quarter of its titles after implementing a strategic review in the spring aimed at helping it focus its business more acutely on multimedia publishing.
The sell off helped clear the decks ahead of Sylvia Auton’s return in January when she will become IPC’s new chief executive and oversee its new strategy.
Press Gazette will be keen to talk to her about what the future holds for IPC Media once she is in her role. Until then, here is the coverage we have given to IPC’s magazine sell off in recent months.
