Trinity Mirror plc (LSE: TNI) is a large British newspaper and magazine publisher. It is Britain's biggest newspaper group, publishing 240 regional papers as well as the national Daily Mirror, Sunday Mirror and People, and the Scottish Sunday Mail and Daily Record. Its headquarters are at Canary Wharf in London. Listed on the London Stock Exchange, it is a constituent of the FTSE SmallCap Index.
In 1958 the International Publishing Company (IPC) acquired Mirror Group Newspapers, but IPC was in turn taken over by publishing giant Reed International in 1970. In 1984 Pergamon Holdings, a company owned by Robert Maxwell, acquired the Daily Mirror from Reed International. The Company was relisted as Mirror Group in 1991.
Trinity Mirror was formed in September 1999 by the merger of Trinity plc, a company formed in 1985 to buy the Liverpool Post and Echo, with Mirror Group plc. As a condition of the merger Trinity Mirror was forced to sell the Belfast Telegraph group. The next year, the company acquired the regional publisher Southnews.
During 2005 the company introduced a number of measures to manage discretionary spending more carefully, some of which attracted press attention.
In 2007 the company sought to sell a number of titles: the Reading Chronicle was sold to Berkshire Media Group and 25 Trinity Mirror South titles were sold to Northcliffe Media. On 1 October 2007 it was announced that the sale of the Racing Post had been completed: the entire sale process had raised £263 million.
In February 2010, Trinity Mirror acquired the regional M.E.N Media and S&B Media divisions of the Guardian Media Group, containing 22 local titles across Northern England and in Surrey and Berkshire; this includes the Manchester Evening News and Reading Evening Post.
In March 2010,Trinity Mirror stated that it will end its bout of staff cuts and newspaper closures. The announcement came as the company reported pre-tax profits of £72.7m for 2009, exceeding analysts expectations.
Trinity Mirror's printing division, Trinity Mirror Printing Ltd, is located at nine press sites throughout the UK, printing and distributing thirty-six major newspapers for the UK, including the Daily and Sunday Mirror, The People, the Daily Record (in Scotland), and other contract titles including titles for the Guardian Media Group. Trinity Mirror also owns a number of local titles in Northern England and in Surrey and Berkshire, after acquiring a number of titles from the Guardian Media Group in 2010. For a list of local and national titles owned by Trinity Mirror, see List of Trinity Mirror titles.
