Prospects

12


Strategy in brief • Talentum’s core business is publishing targeted at professionals in various sectors • The company’s strengths are its multichannel approach and strong, well-known brands, as well as accurately defined expert target groups and good knowledge of them • The most important short-term goal of Talentum’s business operations is to improve profitability • In addition to other publishing operations, the main focus areas of growth are e-business and events • Talentum is purposefully developing business operations which are less dependent on economic conditions than advertising • The aim is to diversify the company’s income structure to boost the proportion of income derived from content, rather than circulation and advertising 13


Prospects 2012, unchanged • The company estimates that economic growth in the main market areas, Finland and Sweden will be modest in 2012, which will reflect relatively moderate growth in advertising. • Talentum estimates that in 2012 its comparable net sales will remain on the same level and its operating income without non-recurring items will increase compared to 2011.

• Next interim report on July 20, 2012.
