Finanstidningen increases reach

FINANSTIDNINGEN INCREASES REACH Modern Times Group MTG AB, the international media group, today announced that FinansTidningen has further increased its readership and consolidated its position as the fastest growing business newspaper in Sweden. The final 2001 SIFO Orvesto leading independent readership survey reported a 1.2% year on year increase in FinansTidningen's daily readership in the period from September to December 2001. FinansTidningen now has 171,000 daily readers. Hans-Holger Albrecht, President and CEO of MTG, commented: "These figures reinforce the attraction of FinansTidningen. The financial news segment is a growing one and FinansTidningen continues to outperform the rival daily business newspaper, which experienced a decline in readership over the same period."

This business area also includes the www.finanstidningen.se website, the Kapital and Moderna Toder magazines, the arrangement of analyst meetings through Financial Hearings, the TV 8 business channel, and the Brombergs Bokförlag book publisher.
