Kiplinger has been sold to the owners of The Week
Dennis Publishing, which publishes The Week, has acquired longtime family-run company Kiplinger Washington Editors Inc. for an undisclosed amount, reports Sara Jerde of Adweek.
Jerde reports, “Kiplinger’s Personal Finance, a magazine that boasts a monthly circulation of 6000,000, will be added to Dennis’ portfolio of more than 30 magazine and online brands covering current affairs, technology and lifestyle. Dennis, which owns The Week, claims its portfolio of brands reach over 50 million unique visitors per month.
“‘Kiplinger is everything we look for in a business: It is blessed with strong brands that have developed a high degree of trust with their readers, allied to a vibrant, growing digital business,’ said James Tye, Group CEO of Dennis, in a statement.
“Knight Kiplinger, 71, will stay on as chairman of Kiplinger Washington Editors, Inc.’s former parent company, Outlook, Inc., and as editor emeritus of Kiplinger, which is an informal advising role on editorial content. The real estate properties held by Outlook, Inc. aren’t part of the deal with Dennis.”
