Sun Media And Transcontinental To Sell 34 Quebec Newspapers

Sun Media Corporation and Transcontinental Inc. (TSX:TCL.A), must put 34 weekly community newspapers up for sale to safeguard competition for advertising sales in local Quebec markets, after Transcontinental agreed to buy 74 papers from Sun Media in late 2013. The 34 newspapers, some of which are part of the previous sale, will be offered for sale for 60 days by an independent party with no minimum price. The 60-day sale period is designed to market-test" whether buyers could be found for each of the 34 papers and, if not, Transcontinental will be allowed to retain ownership. If some are sold, Transcontinental must also provide printing and distribution services to buyers for a time to ensure the papers are sustainable.
