Ringier AG has succeeded in extensively offsetting the considerable damage caused by coronavirus. It has done so thanks to the continuation of its diversification strategy, systematic implementation of the digitalisation process and strict and efficient cost management.
Despite a drop in sales – particularly in the advertising and event markets – the Group can look back on a solid operating result with EBITDA of CHF 84.4 million in 2020.
The digital EBITDA share generated by Ringier remains high at 69%.
