Sanoma Corporation, Stock Exchange Release, 20 July 2017 at 10:30 CET+1
Sanoma announced on 19 July that it will change its segment reporting. Previously Sanoma reported two segments, Consumer Media (comprising Sanoma Media Finland and Sanoma Media BeNe) and Learning (comprising Sanoma Learning). Following the divestment of the Dutch TV business, Sanoma considers that the operations of its two strategic business units focusing on consumer media, Sanoma Media Finland and Sanoma Media BeNe, are quite different and should be reported separately. Therefore Sanoma will report three operating segments going forward, i.e. its three strategic business units Sanoma Media BeNe, Sanoma Media Finland and Sanoma Learning. This will be aligned with the way Sanoma manages the businesses.
Comparable information for new segments for all quarters in 2016 and first quarter in 2017 is provided in the attached tables. The half-year report, to be published on 25 July, will be prepared in accordance with the new structure.
The information is available also in Sanoma.com/investors.
