Future Publishing Australia has moved to take two tech magazines from Bauer Media as the German-backed publisher continues to slim down its portfolio of titles.
Underperforming TechLife, which lost more than a quarter of its circulation in today’s Australian Bureau of Circulation monthly mag figures, and APC, which made a marginal game, will join FPA’s stable of tech-focused products which include Tech Radar and Australian T3.
The deal also includes all digital properties for the brands.
Neville Daniels, COO of FPA, said: “APC and TechLife are incredibly strong brands in the Australian technology sector – both engage large, loyal audiences of tech-savvy, influential early adopters.
“And both perfectly complement our existing portfolio. We’re looking forward to working with their talented teams as we develop our technology audiences across print, tablet, mobile and online, focused on becoming Australia’s leading technology publisher.”
