Dennis Publishing Digital ABC Increase

Dennis Publishing today revealed its significant digital circulation growth across its fitness titles, reflecting the business’s commitment to deliver cross-platform content to its readers. The publisher’s flagship title, The Week, delivers yet another ABC increase, despite opting to not report on its digital circulation figures, which boasts over 786,000 issues downloaded in the first half of 2013. James Tye, CEO of Dennis Publishing, said: “It's fantastic to see The Week growing its circulation in print once again but also frustrating that we can't give our advertisers the full picture in this ABC release. We have over 20,000 digital, paying subscribers reading The Week on iPad, iPhone, Android and Kindle but due to current reporting regulations we are unable to recognise this audience in the audit. I think it is time for the audit process to accept that not all publishers or indeed consumers want simple page replicas of their favourite brands on tablet devices."
