Sanoma Corporation, Stock Exchange Release, 8 October 2013 at 16:00 CET+1

Sanoma has today sold its learning operations, NTK Educational Holding Zrt, in Hungary to a consortium of members of the management team.

“The divestment of our learning operations in Hungary is related to a long period of adverse conditions in the Hungarian education market. The transaction in Hungary does not change our focus on consumer media and learning,” says Harri-Pekka Kaukonen, President and CEO of Sanoma Corporation.

In 2012, the net sales for NTK Educational Holding Zrt totalled some EUR 21 million. As a result of the transaction, Sanoma will book in the third quarter of 2013 a non-recurring capital loss of around EUR 23 million.
