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

“As compared to last year, the number of digital subscriptions of Ekspress Grupp continued to demonstrate fast growth; however, the growth rate decelerated slightly in the 2nd quarter. One the one hand, this slowdown is, as expected, due to the reference base of previous periods which keeps getting higher and higher. On the other hand, growth was also impacted by our marketing campaigns where the prices of the subscriptions of new customers were less than 1 euro but that we do not include in the number of digital subscriptions. We will be able to witness the positive impact of the campaigns in the second half of the year.”
