DB Corp Ltd has announced its plan to launch editions in Jharkhand, Bihar and Jammu as part of the group’s growth and expansion plans.

Commenting on this development, Sudhir Agarwal, Managing Director, DB Corp Ltd, said, “These are times of exciting new beginnings and we strongly feel that high economic growth is being driven by the potential of Tier II and Tier III cities and rural markets, and with our inherent leadership strengths and competitive advantages in the existing markets, and the proven and experienced availability of the team for successful new launches under varied culture and languages, we are well positioned to harness this potential as a gateway to large local catch.”

DB Corp has flagship newspapers Dainik Bhaskar, Divya Bhaskar, Business Bhaskar, and Saurashtra Samachar in its bouquet. It may be recalled that DB Corp had entered the capital markets with its IPO of 1.81 crore equity shares on December 11, 2009 at a price band of Rs 185-212.
