Bauer has confirmed the conclusion of its UK Publishing portfolio review, originally announced on 18 May.

The magazines and digital properties for Sea Angler, Car Mechanics and Your Horse are to move into new ownership under Kelsey Media. Modern Classics and Q are to cease publication with immediate effect.

Chris Duncan, CEO UK Publishing, said: “We are pleased to have found such suitable new owners in Kelsey Media who can extend the life of these magazines and we wish the brands and teams every success for the future.

We have been unable to find equivalent new owners for Q and for Modern Classics and have decided to cease publication of these titles with immediate effect. We thank those teams for their work on these iconic titles.

These tough decisions were made to help us recover and rebuild through the Covid-19 crisis. We will continue that process with our remaining portfolio of world class titles.”
