Other Activities

The Group's business scope also comprises "Other Activities", mainly Lagardère News (Paris Match, Le Journal du Dimanche, Europe 1, Virgin Radio, RFM and the Elle brand licence) together with Lagardère Live Entertainment.


Lagardère News

In 2020, Lagardère News was hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic, which led to a decline in advertising revenues.

With 13.6 million readers every month1 across its various formats, Paris Match sustained its position as France's leading news magazine in 2020, as measured by both audience and circulation. In addition, Le Journal du Dimanche, France's "must-read" weekend paper, totalled 4.2 million monthly readers across its various formats.

In 2020, 2.7 million listeners2 tuned into Europe 1 each day, and listeners downloaded more than 107 million of the station's podcasts3 (up 30% year on year). In addition, Virgin Radio logged more than 1.6 million listeners a day4 and made its mark as the radio station that resonates the most with the 25-49 demographic, which represents 71% of its listeners. Lastly, more than two million people listened in to RFM each day5, with the station enjoying one of the longest time-spent listening levels in the French music radio market (one hour 35 minutes a day6).

Elle brand licence
Elle International, the world's leading women's media network, continued its development in 2020 with highlights including the launch of Elle in Brazil and Kazakhstan and the signing of a worldwide Elle Education licensing agreement. The Elle network also stepped up its game in the non-media licensing business. Its many successes over the year included partnering with Crown in Europe on the Elle Decoration paint collection and with QVC on a women's ready-to-wear fashion line in Japan; launching the Elle Sport, Elle Lingerie and Elle Kids lines in the United Kingdom; and signing a worldwide Elle Decoration wallpaper licensing agreement with Erismann.

2021 challenges
The 2021 outlook primarily depends on the recovery of advertising. Lagardère News remains committed to asserting its identity as a group of influential, creative, impactful media brands. While continuing to optimise costs across the business base, Lagardère News will pursue its core objectives in 2021 of asserting its identity and developing synergies, restoring Europe 1's audience figures, driving faster digital transformation in the Press business, broadening the Elle branded business, growing the radio stations and diversifying the revenue stream.

Lagardère Live Entertainment

Specialised in producing concerts and live shows, as well as venue management, Lagardère Live Entertainment's business was severely affected by the health crisis in 2020 as many tours were rescheduled or cancelled and venues closed in the wake of Covid-19. The primary objective in 2021 will be to resume operations as soon as possible in compliance with any social distancing, reduced capacity and customer journey rules. Adaptability will remain the guiding principle, as it was throughout the past year.
