Bonnier sells Dagbladet Børsen to JP/Politikens Hus
The Swedish media group Bonnier has agreed to sell Dagbladet Børsen A/S and Børsen Associated Media A/S to JP/Politikens Hus A/S for DKK 800m. Plesner assisted Bonnier with the transaction.
With the new owner the Danish financial newspaper Børsen will continue as an independent medium with complete editorial independence. The newspaper will join the other national publications by JP/Politikens Hus.
In addition to Dagbladet Børsen, the sale includes Børsen Associated Media which also publishes the Danish magazine Dagens Medicin.
Bonnier's sale of Børsen will strengthen Bonnier's strategic objective of increasing its share of new, primarily digital, earnings from 15% in 2015 to 50% in 2020.
The final completion of the transaction is conditional on the Danish Competition and Consumer Authority's approval.
