IPC Media – the UK’s leading consumer magazine publisher has unveiled its latest round of ABC figures, highlighting a strong performance on a number of key brands.
The latest ABC figures (July to December 2007) showcase sterling performances for pillar brands across all five IPC divisions, while pioneering IPC digital brands including www.instylemagazine.co.uk, www.housetohome.co.uk, www.nuts.co.uk, www.nme.com, www.whatsontv.co.uk and our latest launch, www.goodtoknow.co.uk continue to make great progress.
IPC chief executive Sylvia Auton says: “While some sectors remain challenging, we are enjoying some star performances from truly compelling brands, and we continue to see value growth – up 6% on the year.”
“2007 has been a transformational year for IPC with the business continuing to leverage the power of IPC brands through strong multi-platform growth – and that will continue to be at the heart of our business strategy. New launches like housetohome and goodtoknow are exceeding expectations, while more established sites like NME.COM and Nuts.co.uk are delivering innovation and significant growth. And it doesn’t stop there – with NutsTV extending its reach from Freeview to Sky, NMETV delivering a 24/7 service on Sky and NME Radio on its way – we will continue to create new platforms for our compelling properties.”
