Name Auto Trader Group Epic AUTO
Activities Auto Trader Group plc is a 100% digital business, which has evolved from a print classified business founded in 1977. The Group's transition to a digital business began in 1996, with the launch of, a UK online forum enabling users to buy and sell vehicles. From 1996 onwards, the Group began to focus on transforming its business into a leading digital automotive marketplace, becoming one of the busiest websites in the UK. Auto Trader's online revenue surpassed its print revenues for the first time in 2007. As part of the Group's strategy to transition to a fully digital business, the Group undertook several measures to develop its digital offering, including the acquisition of an online used car retailer-to-retailer trading platform in 2009, the provision of websites for retailers and the launch of mobile applications in 2010, and the launch of the first of a series of data-oriented recommendation engines in 2013. The Group also undertook the progressive closure of the print business, with the final publication of the print magazine in June 2013. The digital automotive Marketplace continues to evolve and, in 2014, the audience on mobile devices (including tablets) surpassed those on desktops for the first time. The content of is accessible on multiple major devices including mobile phones, tablets and desktop, and supported by multiple mainstream operating systems including iOS, Android and Windows Phone. During the years 1994 to 1995, Auto Trader diversified into overseas markets including Holland, South Africa and Italy. However, in 2013, the Group made the decision to focus solely on the UK and Ireland. The Group completed the disposal of its overseas subsidiaries in 2013. A small investment in a Chinese classified business called iAutos remains, but management consider this to be a non-material investment. ISIN GB00BVYVFW23
