In 2015, TMG made an operating profit of £51 million. Profits before tax were £47m, and turnover for the 53 weeks up to 3 January 2016 was £319m, according to unaudited accounts leaked to The Guardian. If these figures are accurate, then this was an increase from 2014 levels on both accounts.[2]

In 2023, TMG acquired The Chelsea Magazine Company, publisher of magazines including Classic Boat.[3]

Telegraph Media Group operates as a multimedia news company. The holding publishes daily and weekly publications in printed and electronic versions, which provide news on politics, obituaries, sports, finance, lifestyle, travel, health, culture, technology, fashion and cars.

In June 2023, the group was put up for sale, after its parent company B.UK, a Bermuda-based holding company, went into receivership. Howard and Aidan Barclay were removed as directors.[4]
