The Belgian-Dutch media group Mediahuis acquires 100% of the shares of Themamedia N.V.
Themamedia, a part of the Primetime Communication Group, has been the publisher of a wide range of products in the free press since 2007, both in display and in door-to-door and digital. Geographically, the focus is on the regions of East Brabant and Limburg. Titles such as Themanieuws, Actueel, De Smaakgids, Themadeluxe, Zin in het Leven and numerous local papers in the Hageland region are included in the Themamedia portfolio.
In Flanders, Mediahuis is already active with free publications such as Rondom and Pas-Uit through its wholly-owned subsidiary Connect Noord.
With the acquisition of Themamedia, Mediahuis will become the clear market leader in the field of free regional and local information dissemination in East Brabant.
