Chairman's Message

A vision to establish a pool of new independent, innovative, interesting, interactive, investigative medium for new generation is what SPAC WLL believes in. SPAC made history in Bahrain by establishing the first private Radio Station in the Kingdom that enjoyed the support and love of thousands. SPAC went on to introduce DT News, an English daily newspaper, 4PM News, the first evening Malayalam newspaper from Middle East and Weekender, a weekly that provides solution to readers' uneventful weekend. SPAC has consistently established its ability to capture market share, attain brilliance in the area of its functions and understand stakeholder worth. In the last seven years, the company has seen a tenfold increase in growth, diversified its brand portfolio and introduced new products and innovations. Our mission is to be one of the most distinguished media houses in the Middle East, India and beyond by expanding operations to more than seven countries before 2020. We value integrity, accountability and sustainability that are ingrained in our corporate culture. SPAC makes continuous investment in human resources, believes in zero compromise on quality and giving consistent value for money to customers and thereby maximizing value for investors.
