Strong digital services to complement publishing operations
Alma Media has seven business units: Marketplaces, Iltalehti, Kauppalehti Group, Satakunnan Kirjateollisuus, Aamulehti, Suomen Paikallissanomat and Pohjois-Suomen Media. Their operations are reported in three segments. The fourth reporting segment, Other operations, comprises the functions of the parent company and the printing and distribution operations of Alma Manu Oy. The reporting segments are presented here.
Under Alma Media’s revised strategy, the company’s business brands are categorised into publishing operations, digital consumer services and digital business services. Alma Media’s key products and services in these business areas are shown in the chart on the previous page.
The business units whose primary focus is on publishing operations are Aamulehti, Suomen Paikallissanomat, Satakunnan Kirjateollisuus and Pohjois-Suomen Media. Alma Manu is responsible for the printing and distribution of newspapers.
The Iltalehti business unit is developing a strong offering of digital consumer services alongside its publishing operations. Kauppalehti Group’s operations are similarly divided into publishing and digital business services. The Marketplaces business unit focuses primarily on digital consumer services both in Finland and abroad.
The success of the business operations is supported by the collaboration of Alma Media units, chaining operations, as well as the printing, distribution and administration services provided by other Group companies.
