Norwegian publisher Schibsted closed the print edition of Segunda mano, the largest circulated classified newspapers in Spain. Schibsted has decided to serve the market exclusively through its website. As a result of this decision, 217 workers were laid-off.
Schibsted also owns 80% of the free newspaper 20 Minutos in Spain.
20 Minutos had advanced a lot in circulation and revenues in recent years. However, the current decline in economic activity in Spain has precipitated a decline in advertising revenue and losses of 5.7 million euros. 14 employees were recently dismissed from 20 Minutos.
