MONTREAL, Nov. 10 /CNW Telbec/ - Today, Astral Media Inc. (TSX: ACM.A/ACM.B) launched the website www.2009astralmedia.com to host the Company's annual report for Fiscal 2009. This fully interactive online annual report provides an in-depth review of the fiscal year ended August 31, 2009.
"Despite the challenging economic environment, Astral Media is very proud to have reached new financial milestones and to have recorded at 13th consecutive year of profitable growth," said Alain Bergeron, Vice-President, Corporate Communications and Chief Marketing Officer, Astral Media. "This solid performance is the result of the hard work, creativity and dedication of the 2,800 women and men who work for us in 45 cities across the country and who have made Astral Media one of Canada's leading media companies. Consequently, the theme of our 2009 annual report was a natural choice: Our strength. Our people. Furthermore, the Web is the only medium that can provide a dynamic and innovative showcase to introduce you to some of our employees."
For three years now, one of the concrete measures Astral Media has taken to reduce its environmental footprint has been to print only the minimum legally required number of copies of its annual report. Since 2007, this has reduced the number of printed copies by nearly 60,000.
Design and production of the Company's multimedia annual report was entrusted to Revolver 3, while Graphiques M&H was selected to design and produce the print version.
