Performance Report 2021

This performance report summarise financial results and highlights from NHST Media Group and its publications in 2021. DN Media Group was previously named NHST Media Group.

2021 was another year defined by the Covid-19 pandemic, bringing with it uncertainties as well as opportunities. NHST Media Group delivered increased revenues and defined its aim for the future: to improve its financial performance while building a strong foundation for growth to support continuous investment in world class journalism.

At NHST we work tirelessly on delivering on our mission – ‘insight for better business and society’ – in the global shipping, seafood and energy industries and in the business sector in Norway.

During the pandemic we have accomplished significant digital growth, delivering breaking news and inspiring stories to readers all over the world. NHST also underwent a significant reorganisation process, dividing the media business (NHST Media Group) from the SaaS business (NHST Marketing Technologies) into two separate divisions. Within the media division we have built a new integrated organisation with common commercial and support functions serving our portfolio of publications.

Simultaneously, we were able to deliver a financial performance we are proud of, further strengthening the profitability we have achieved in recent years.
