Informa down

Informa has seen a drop in profits, but mostly due to restructuring costs. With a a good subs/paid info base and a strong events portfolio Informa is better placed than most to ride out the storm - but only if there is recovery soon. Delegate sales to conferences remain tough and will get tougher the longer the recession goes on.

Think you are being overly optimistic.

Subs revenue will fall rapidly in 2010 and 2011. Nearly every business is seeing new subs dry up and renewal rates falling.

Businesses which are reliant on advertising have taken the pain in 2009 (and will still have a hard time next year). Subs businesses look stronger in 2009 but will have very tough years ahead.
