The company sells directory listings and banner advertising on www.1881.no. The spin off from Opplysningen 1881 ultimo 2010 was part of the refinement of the various business areas in the Opplysningen group.
Digitale Medier has been a successful turn-around case for Kistefos. Before the spin off from Opplysningen 1881, the unit had been loss-making every year since the inception in 2005, but Digitale Medier 1881 reached profitability in 2011 – its first year as a stand alone company.
Mid 2013 the company was sold to Amedia AS, yielding a very strong return for Kistefos.
