The company will "relaunch a larger-scale news relaunch, boosting the use of online media and immediate services, while safeguarding its hallmarks and reinforcing its Andalusian character". With the acquisition of the Sevillian newspaper, the business group consolidates its Morera & Vallejo Comunicación division, which was created a few months ago with the purchase of Canal Luz Televisión.

An operation in record time: 1 month
According to the newspaper's own sources and as reported in the article published on 29 November: "The situation, which led to imminent closure, occurred when more than one payroll was already owed to the workers. But the mediation in the sale of the Basque company Abra Invest allowed the situation to be frozen while a way out was sought: the company opted to reverse the purchase, with no chance of running the newspaper because of the lack of financial backing, and to look for a solvent entrepreneur capable of taking on this challenge".
Abra Invest was in charge of looking for other potential buyers, among which was the Group chaired by Antonio Morera, and of mediating between workers, creditors and the buyer, managing to close the operation in a record time of 1 month. The Works Committee of the dean of the Sevillian press has conveyed its thanks to Abra Invest.
