The Company is listed on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (stock code: 1105). Its principal activities comprise Media and Media-related operations, including traditional media spanning Newspapers, Magazines, Recruitment Media and Books, as well as online and mobile multi-media platforms which the Group has been developing in order to open up new reader segments and revenue sources. In building our cross-media business we keep a pulse closely on the latest development trends to meet the extensive needs of the market.

The "Sing Tao" brand dates back to 1938 when the daily newspaper of the same title was launched in Hong Kong. Over the years, "Sing Tao" has become recognized as a global name in the print media market. The current newspaper portfolio includes paid and free newspapers in both Chinese and English languages, targeting local and overseas Chinese readers. Currently, the Group is placing strong efforts on the development of its new media business by adopting the strategy of upgrading the “single-engine drive” of the Group’s traditional media to become a “dual-engine drive” which combines traditional media and new media, in order to build a competitive multi-media platform. In January 2022, the Group launched the all-new “Sing Tao Headline” APP, providing users with trending news, videos/live broadcasts, personalized functions and practical daily-living tools.
Within the print media operations, the flagship publication is the renowned Sing Tao Daily. Acclaimed as one of the world's most widely-read Chinese-language daily newspapers, Sing Tao Daily publishes a number of overseas editions sold in over 100 cities worldwide, in addition to Hong Kong. The Group has also established for itself a leadership position in Hong Kong's free newspaper market, given the success of Headline Daily and The Standard, respectively the No. 1 Chinese-language and English-language free paper. In the Magazine market, the weekly title East Week provides comprehensive content on local and global current affairs, entertainment, lifestyle and cultural trends. The Group also offers a multi-media platform for recruitment and continuing education advertising under its JobMarket brand.
