Time Inc. UK has closed the local edition of InStyle, which became digital-only in 2016, reports WWD.

“As a result of Time Inc. UK’s new ownership, the company has decided it will not be continuing with the InStyle UK license,” a company spokeswoman said Tuesday. “From May 21, the InStyle UK web site will automatically redirect to instyle.com so UK users will continue to enjoy the InStyle experience.”

The InStyle closure is one of the first moves by the new owners, private-equity firm Epiris. Earlier this year, Epiris confirmed its purchase of Time Inc. U.K. from Meredith Corp. The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
