Agora and "Gazeta Wyborcza" daily were created before the parliamentary elections in 1989. "Gazeta Wyborcza" became the first independent daily in the country, and Agora grew into one of the largest and most known media companies in Poland. Since 1999 the Company has been listed on Warsaw Stock Exchange.
The Group's largest enterprises are:
Agora's websites are among the leading in terms of popularity in their categories. The company's dozens of Internet brands include, among others: Gazeta.pl, Sport.pl, Tokfm.pl and Plotek.pl, available online and through mobile applications; Agora is present on the programmatic advertising market through its subsidiary Yieldbird - one of the fastest growing companies in this area on the Polish market.
The company also owns three music brands of local radio stations: Złote Przeboje, Rock Radio and Radio Pogoda, the internet radio Tuba.FM and is the majority co-owner of the supraregional Radio TOK FM.
Agora has been operating on the food service market since 2019 through the Step Inside company belonging to the Helios network, which creates new restaurants under the Pasibus brand.
The Agora Group plans for 2018-2022 to develop its largest businesses, including expanding the Helios cinema network, strengthening the position on the out-of-home market and selling premium content in the subscription model. At the same time Agora focuses on the start of operations in entirely new areas outside the advertising market: in the field of innovative B2B services and in the sphere of entertainment and leisure.
The Agora Group’s new strategy for 2018-2022 is based on two strong pillars: systematic development of existing businesses and expanding the offer of the largest enterprises with innovative products or premium services, as well as development of new activities in prospective market segments.
The Agora Group focuses in its current activity on:
Agora intends also to dynamically enter the market of B2B services and become the first choice partner for enterprises operating on the e-commerce market and looking for effective MarTech tools. The Group plans to develop this new business through both acquisitions and organic growth.
Agora has also begun an intensive market research for new areas of activity, focusing in particular on projects related to spending free time away from home. The main foundation of this development is Helios, the leader of the Polish cinema market. Basing on existing competences and the know-how acquired from the market, the Group will offer new recipients modern eateries and entertainment concepts for the whole family both in shopping centers and outside them.
The Management Board of Agora estimates that in the next 4 years, the level of investment in existing businesses may amount to ca. PLN 430 million. However, the Group plans to allocate up to PLN 500 million for the development of new ventures, investing in projects in the following areas: leisure and entertainment, B2B services for e-commerce, MarTech tools and other concepts. Agora does not exclude investments strengthening its current businesses, especially in those areas where the possibilities of dynamic organic growth have been exhausted. At the same time, the Management Board of Agora aims to maintain the company's dividend policy.
More information on the Agora Group's plans, including goals for selected businesses, can be found in the "Agora Group Strategy for 2018-2022".
