The divesture of Sanoma Magazines Slovakia is an important step for Sanoma Magazines International in its strategy of focusing on core products and core markets, the company said.

In Slovakia, Sanoma Magazines Slovakia’s portfolio was limited to magazines (Stratégie, Obchod, Horeca Magazine, Zdravotnícke Noviny, Sestra, Diabetik, RUN and others) and magazine extensions (like conferences) in the business-to-business market.

Sanoma remains present in Slovakia through its home deco portal, Tvojdom.sk, and a building service website, eStranky.sk.
