Bonnier Consolidates E-Commerce

Press Release   •   Aug 31, 2012 12:00 GMT

In order to provide the best conditions for growth and synergies in e-commerce, Bonnier is consolidating two of the group’s biggest e-commerce companies: online bookseller Adlibris AB and online movie and game retailer Discshop Näthandel AB. At the same time, mail order and online movie, music and game retailer Homeenter will become a part of Bonnierförlagen.

Discshop will become a subsidiary of Adlibris and as a consequence part of book publisher Bonnierförlagen. Henrik Oscarsson, CEO for Discshop, will report to Magnus Dimert, CEO for Adlibris. The new organization is effective immediately and will include as well further development of the existing product portfolio. Expansion of the product portfolio can be both organic as well as via acquisition.

“Our companies have a lot in common,” says Dimert. “By consolidating we can take advantage of each other’s competence and open up for expansion, but above all give our consumers an even better offering.”

“I can’t think of a better partner than Adlibris in order to take advantage of the powerful growth in e-commerce,” says Oscarsson. “Together we have an exciting journey ahead of us.”

Homeenter, which like Discshop has been part of SF Consumer Entertainment, will in the future become a part of Bonnierförlagen. Homeenter CEO Marie Bratani-Olsson will report to Jacob Dalborg, CEO of Bonnierförlagen.
