In the accounts, which cover the 12 months to 31 December 2008, Condé Nast said its principal challenges include "competition from other media impacting circulation and advertising revenues and adverse movement in the UK or worldwide advertising markets".

Salaries remained broadly stable year on year at about £29.9m.
