Alma Media Corporation Stock Exchange Release 13.1.2012 at 16.05 EET
ALMA MEDIA'S FINANCIAL YEAR 2011: REVENUE WILL GROW, OPERATING PROFIT WILL REMAIN BELOW EARLIER ESTIMATES
Alma Media estimates that its revenue from financial year 2011 will grow but its operating profit excluding non-recurring items will remain below the previous year's level. The company reduces the estimate concerning its operating profit excluding non-recurring items due to the additional costs booked on December and the weaker than expected circulation and advertising sales in December of 2011.
Earlier, Alma Media has expected its revenue and operating profit excluding non-recurring items to increase from the 2010 level. Alma Media's revenue in 2010 was MEUR 311.4, operating profit excluding non-recurring items MEUR 43.9 and operating profit MEUR 43.4.
Alma Media will publish its financial statement release for financial year 2011 on Wednesday February 15, 2012.
