IPC considering more title sell offs

It’s thought that IPC Media could sell off more of its titles after last year offloading Loaded and some specialist magazines like Aeroplane and Ships Monthly.

The Time Warner owned publisher undertook a business review and restructure last year, and management are now reportedly looking at the whole IPC portfolio and considering their options. Individual titles, or families of titles, or whole divisions may be put up for sale, anonymous sources say, though they add that the option of Time Warner selling IPC outright seems unlikely.

Meanwhile a spokesman for Time Warner told reporters: “Of course we conduct regular reviews of all of our businesses to ensure we remain competitive, but there is no plan for any further action at IPC”.

On the music side, IPC are publishers of both NME and Uncut.
