Astral Unveils Annual Report on Web and Mobile Devices

Astral Media Inc. today unveiled its interactive Annual Report for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2011, available online and on mobile devices.

The Fiscal 2011 financial and operational highlights for Astral and its business units are presented in a sleek, user-friendly environment focused on interactivity, and features a design celebrating the Company's fiftieth anniversary. The report also includes a video in which Astral's executives share key moments of the past year and identify the Company's top priorities for the years to come.

"Only the web can do justice to the breadth and diversity of Astral's portfolio of brands, properties and advertising platforms. The 2011 Annual Report offers a highly interactive review of the fiscal year in which we recorded a fifteenth consecutive year of growth and achieved the one billion dollar revenue mark for the very first time in our history," said Jacques Parisien, Executive Vice-President and Chief Operating Officer, Astral.

Once again this year, Astral has printed a minimum number of copies of its Annual Report. It's one of the Company's many initiatives to reduce its ecological footprint. With this simple gesture, Astral has reduced by over 100,000 the number of its printed annual reports over the past five years.

Record numbers...all at the expense of newsrooms and creative departments. Well done Astral, your revenue earned per employee just jumped huge, why not include that?!

Cut more people and make more money.


Have no clue what business they are in. You may as well sell coffins.

Bad joke - considering the staff they have cut.

I just happened to stumble onto this old Letterman video about firing employees in the broadcast industry ... looks like it must have been 20+ years ago. So this seems to be nothing new .... enjoy!
