History and profile[edit]

The paper was established as a monthly publication under the name of Les Échos de l’Exportation by the brothers Robert and Émile Servan-Schreiber in 1880.[1] It became a daily newspaper in 1908 and was renamed as Les Échos.[1] The newspaper was bought by the British media group Pearson PLC in 1988,[1] and was sold to the French luxury goods conglomerate LVMH in November 2007.[2][3] The publisher of the paper is Groupe Les Échos.[1]

Les Échos has a liberal stance and is published in weekdays.[1] The paper is headquartered in Paris and has a website which was launched in 1996.[4] The paper publishes economical analyses by leading economists, including Joseph Stiglitz and Kenneth Rogoff.[4]

In 2004, the newspaper won the EPICA award.[5]

The 2009 circulation of Les Échos was 127,000 copies.[1] From July 2011 to July 2012 the paper had a circulation of 120,546 copies.[6]

In 2010, the coverage of Les Échos was expanded to cover such topics as innovations in science, technologies, green growth, medicine and health and skills concerning marketing and advertising, management, education, strategy and leadership, law and finance.[7] The former separate sections of IT and communications were merged under the section of high tech and media.
