A similar overview has been published annually by the Norwegian Media Authority, but this differs from the one below on several accounts: free newspapers are included, and in some cases circulation of newspapers where companies are not formally in control are counted in.

In 2015 Schibsted issued a new class of B-shares with a tenth of the voting rights of the original shares (A-shares). In this overview the ownership information is based on share of voting rights. The Tinius Trust owns 25 % of the capital.
2014 onwards the overview is based on net circulation (print and online combined).
Ownership information applies to the same year as circulation figures.
