Ad falls hit Springer profits
Text size Aa Aa

The German media giant Axel Springer has posted lower profits and sales for last year due to a “massive” fall in advertising spending.

Restructuring and extra marketing costs pulled its net profit down 40 percent to 152 million euros.

The publisher of over 170 newspapers and magazines in 35 countries said it did manage to outperform the overall market.
