SHIFT­ING FO­CUS

Finweek English Edition - - INVESTMENT - Simon Brown

Read­ing Naspers’s* re­sults and an an­nual report for 2001 (the year it bought Ten­cent) shows just how dif­fer­ent Naspers is a mere decade later. Tech­nol­ogy gets a cou­ple of para­graphs while pic­tures of Paarl Web dom­i­nate the 2001 an­nual report. Fast for­ward 10 years and the com­pany hardly men­tions its legacy print­ing as­sets and the re­sults are all about tech­nol­ogy. si­monb@fin­week.co.za

@Si­monPB *Fin­week is a Me­dia24 publi­ca­tion, which is a sub­sidiary of Naspers.
