Sanoma Magazines, the magazine division of the SanomaWSOY Group, considers the possibilities to sell its movie distribution company R.C.V. Entertainment B.V. The company is the largest independent distributor of film in the Benelux countries.

Sanoma Magazines' strategy is to focus on its core activities, i.e. magazine publishing and online operations. Earlier this year, it disposed of, through its subsidiary Sanoma Uitgevers, its puzzle magazine portfolio in the Netherlands.

No information or comments will be provided on the progress of the process until a final conclusion has been reached.
