The Post Publishing Public Company Limited

We aim to be the best in the business of news and information in Thailand and the region, reaching out to the world.

OVERVIEW

Nature of Business

The Post Publishing Plc. is the publisher and distributor of the Bangkok Post (an English language daily newspaper), Post Today (a Thai language business daily newspaper), Student Weekly (an English language magazine targeting high school and university student and other readers), and M2F (a newly launched Thai language week-day newspaper distributed free directly to young urban professionals and office workers in Bangkok).

Since its founding in 1946, the Group’s news and information businesses have been developed and expanded to include other popular media platforms and activities, products and services, including:

  • Through its subsidiaries Post International Media Co., Ltd., Post IM Plus Co., Ltd. and Post-ACP Co.,Ltd. joint venture, the Group publishes and distributes in Thai language popular magazine titles covering business and social news, fashion & lifestyle, and travel, including: Elle, Marie Claire, Cleo, Elle Decoration, Elle Men, Forbes, Science Illustrated, Fast Bikes, and Cycling Plus.
  • TV and radio news content and feature programmes production and broadcasting through free TV and radio channels – such as for or via TNN 24 News channel, TV Channel 5, and FM Radio 101.0 and FM 97.0 (by Flash news Co., Ltd.).

Since late 2013, despite not winning one of the new digital TV channels auctioned by the Government, the Post Group has seen potential for a rapid rise in revenues from undertaking TV news and business & lifestyle content production for operators of the new digital TV channels. Additionally, through TV business partnership arrangements, renting airtime from such operators and undertaking broadcasting of its own programmes, the Group will acquire new sources of advertising revenue from fast-emerging new media platforms. This, in turn, will help achieve a more balanced business model and revenue mix for the Group over the next five years.

  • Information broadcast via various digital media, including mobile devices and applications, with the aim of making bangkokpost.com and posttoday.com the world’s windows to Thailand. Additionally, the M2F Thai-language job website, together with the English-language Bangkok Post Jobs recruitment display and associated online recruitment portals, target prospective employers and employees.
  • The Group’s books publishing, through Post Books, publishes bestselling international titles translated into Thai, and titles written by our own reporters and columnists or other well-known local authors. Such books cover a wide range of topics of interest, including business, history, culture, arts and inspirational biographies.
  • The Group’s commercial printing business offers general printing services to various organisations and businesses in addition to serving the Group.

The Post Publishing Plc. Continuously grows and develops its business activities, including launching new media platforms, products and services as well as new titles, so as to realise its stated Vision and Mission to become and remain a leading multi-media publisher and distributor in Thailand.
