The World: Amsterdam - TMG sells Bloom Publishing to G+J Uitgevers

Telegraaf Media Group, the largest group of its kind in the Netherlands, has sold its majority interest in Bloom Publishing, which produces the women's glossy JAN, to G+J Uitgevers.

The disposal is in line with TMG's strategy of selling off most of its magazine business.

JAN, a monthly title, was launched in 2005 to target women aged 30 and over and has a paid-for circulation of about 63,000. Its quarterly spin-off, JANTJE, launched two years ago to target families, has a 45,000 circulation.

Eric Blok, the chief executive of G+J Uitgevers, which withdrew its celebrity and lifestyle weekly, Gala, from the Dutch market last year, said: "With these two titles we're reinforcing our position in the women's glossy segment."
