On Friday last week Ovato and Are Media concluded the sale of our Ovato’s Australian business to Are Media after receiving approval from the ACCC. Ovato believe the sale is in their best interests and in the best interests of the magazine publishing landscape. As the largest magazine publisher in Australia and New Zealand, Are […]
The ACCC will not oppose the proposed acquisition of Ovato Retail Distribution by Are Media.
Nine has completed a review of retail sales fees, delivery service fees, and cover prices. As a result of the review, sales fees and the cover price of The Sydney Morning Herald (SMH), The Sun-Herald and The Age newspapers will increase effective Monday, 19 July 2021.
Although last week’s announcement by IPS that they will shut down the distribution business (owned by ACM) for their range of magazines and other print categories may have come as a surprise, given the continuing rationalisation of distribution and logistics across the industry – the news isn’t exactly startling.
ACM will increase the cover price of a wide range of mastheads from 5 July 2021. A full schedule of increases is in the ACM Cover Price Rise Notification All Publications 2021 document which can be downloaded from HERE.

NANA has been working with a broad range of Members in the mid North coast through to the North coast regions of NSW to get a better deal on primary distribution of newspapers and magazines from News Corp Australia.
Newsagents across NSW have this week suffered abysmal delivery performance on newspapers and magazines due to News Corp Australia’s inability to ensure the contractors they use are reliable, knowledgeable and capable of delivering newspapers and magazines to Newsagents on time and in full.
IPS has announced that qualifying Newsagents can now participate in a no physical returns (NPR) program. NANA considers the action by IPS to be a positive move as it will reduce the costs associated with sending returns to IPS.
