More Info About Our New Parent Company & Future Expansions

By shanghaiexpateditor

Following last week’s announcement, we’re excited to tell you more about the future of Shanghai Expat and our sister brands.


Ocean Strategies, an investor group managed by Shanghai-based businessman Bromme H. Cole, has acquired four English language media assets from Ringier China. The assets, consisting of Shanghai Expat, City Weekend, Shanghai Family and Parents&Kids, along with all supplements, will continue as normal for the present time with the exception of City Weekend's monthly magazine.


Going forward, Ocean’s long term strategy will revolve around exciting new expansions of each brand’s digital footprint, including new supplements and bilingual content aimed at becoming a more inclusive media outlet.


We look forward to serving our clients, both long term and new, with a diverse selection of media opportunities to support them in growing their businesses.


In the meantime, for any matters regarding the transition between Ringier and Ocean, we want to be responsive to your questions and needs.
