HONG KONG, 16 November 2015 –

SCMP Group Ltd (SEHK: 583), Asia’s leading media holding company, has entered into an agreement to print the International New York Times (INYT) for mainland China and Hong Kong markets. The printing of INYT at the SCMP will commence in February 2016.

The agreement reflects both media organisations’ strong commitment to print journalism, loyal print readers and advertisers as they continue to push the envelope in the digital frontier. The deal with the INYT follows the SCMP’s first contract printing agreement in 2013 to print am730, a Chinese-language free newspaper in Hong Kong.

Mr Robin Hu, CEO of the SCMP Group, said: “We are delighted to be awarded the contract to undertake INYT’s printing needs for Hong Kong and mainland China. With the INYT, given its loyal base of on-the-go high achieving subscribers, there can be no compromise when it comes to quality and reliability. We are therefore honoured to have been selected by one of the world’s most admired publications as its trusted printer in a region that has established itself as a major source of global news.”

The SCMP Group’s printing facilities are located in the Morning Post Centre in Tai Po, northeast of Hong Kong. Currently, its daily printing production includes the publications of the South China Morning Post, the Sunday Morning Post and am730.
