It includes Asia Times, the English-language publication launched in 1995 (now exclusively online); and P³, a production company that provides strategic counsel to, and produces content and branded advertising for, elite clients worldwide.

Asia Times came under new ownership and management in early 2015. It is now published and run by a small group of investors who purchased the site. It is noteworthy as the only all-digital, pan-Asian site aimed specifically at English-speaking users.
The new publisher is Asia Times Holdings Limited, registered in Hong Kong. The site offers news and commentary by distinguished analysts and correspondents, spanning the spectrum of Asian issues and the global issues that intersect with them. As the successor to the Asia Times newspaper, it draws on a generation of editorial experience and an extensive network of contributors.

David P. Goldman, the well-known American economist and author, contributes online essays for Asia Times under the pseudonym Spengler.
