The Chairman of the Management Board of Ekspress Grupp Mari-Liis Rüütsalu commented:

“In the 4th quarter of 2021, digital subscription growth of the key periodicals and in the key markets of Ekspress Grupp continued. Additional digital growth is primarily attributable to new customers. Latvia and Lithuania where until now the number of digital subscribers was lower demonstrated the fastest growth. The Estonian market also continued its fast growth in a year-over-year comparison. However, in the last quarter growth decelerated in the outlets with the highest number of subscribers. Still, we are witnessing continuation of moderate growth also in Estonia.

The addition of digital subscriptions will have a positive impact on the results of operations of Ekspress Grupp as it provides a stable revenue base in addition to online advertising sales and confirms that the group’s long-term strategic direction is appropriate.“
