Distribution trends looking good at Lagardère Active:

  • In a segm ent shaken up by a number of launches, Mon Jardin Ma Maison has won back market share and achieved distribution up by 6.68% thanks to a reworked formula and an innovative cover strategy.
  • The two young women’s monthlies also continue to rise. In a context marked by growth in use of the Internet and mobile phones by this target audience, Jeune et Jolie, supported by an aggressive marketing strategy, grew by 3.18% to pass the 170,000-copy barrier, while Isa, for which the new formula continues to produce results, gained 2.7%.
  • Action Auto Moto witnessed growth of 2.2%, following on from the excellent results seen in 2006.
  • Première confirmed the success of its new formula, charting positively with growth of 2.22%.
  • Entrevue, still market leader by some distance (market share >60%), has an extremely high distribution level and is performing better in a male market that is once more in decline.
