AZTN approves acquisition of Novi List, Glas Istre and RTD

The Croatian Competition Agency (AZTN) has approved the acquisition of the Rijeka-based Novi List newspaper, the Glas Istre newspaper of Pula and the Zadar newspaper publisher RTD by JOJ Media House from Bratislava.

The concentration will not affect the newspaper sales and advertising markets because the Slovak company has not been present in Croatia to date, the agency said on its website.

The combined share of Novi List, Glas Istre and RTD in the newspaper sales market was between 10 and 15 percent in 2014, while their share in the advertising market was between 15 and 20 percent.
