Future Publishing Restructures to Focus on Digital Publishing

Jul 21, 2011

Future Publishing, which publishers a variety of magazines such as T3, Total Film, and Guitar World, will be selling or closing several of its print titles and laying off 100 staff as part of a shift to focus primarily on digital publishing instead of print. According to a report in the Guardian, the titles being closed or sold include DVD & Blu-Ray Review, Home Cinema Choice, and Photoshop Focus Guides.

Earlier this year, Future announced that it had experienced a 45% decline in pre-tax profits for the first portion of the year and that its US business had witnessed declining advertising revenue.
