In 2019, Schibsted spun off the majority of their online marketplaces business area into the new company Adevinta.
In 1839 Christian Michael Schibsted founded the publishing company Chr. Schibsteds Forlag and in 1860 he started publishing the newspaper Christiania Adresseblad, from 1885 known as Aftenposten. In 1966 Schibsted also acquired Verdens Gang (VG). These were Norway's two largest newspapers, with VG surpassing Aftenposten in 1981. In 1989, under the leadership of Tinius Nagell-Erichsen, Schibsted went from being a family-owned company to a corporation, and was listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange in 1992. From 1992 to 2006 Schibsted owned part of TV 2, and in 2004 Schibsted bought part of TV 4 Sweden. While retaining the newspapers, the company later shifted its focus from television to Internet market places, running Finn.no, Blocket.se and Tori.fi.
