'Competition' prompts She and Cosmo Bride closures

Magazine titles brought to an end with immediate effect following media merger.

Former National Magazine Company titles She and Cosmopolitan Bride are to close with immediate effect following NatMag's merger with Hachette Filipacchi which was completed this week.

The two publishers have combined to form Hearst Magazines UK. The move follows NatMag owner Hearst's acquisition of Hachette Filipacchi owner Lagardere in a £574m deal.

Hearst Magazines said the decision to close the two titles was prompted by "fierce" competition in the sectors they operate in.
