The London Evening Standard‘s parent company is expected to announce that losses almost halved to £16.9m in 2010.
Evening Standard Ltd was set up by Alexander Lebedev as a shell company in February 2009 when he bought the ailing newspaper, which was quickly turned into a freesheet in a bid to boost advertising revenue.
Losses stood at £28.3m between the sub-annual period of December and October 2009. That figure has been reduced to £16.9m though for the 12 months between October 2009 and September 2010, according to Media Week.
