The station, which rebranded from Virgin Radio in September 2008 following its purchase by the Times Of India Group, had been living under something of a cloud since spring this year when it was announced that its owners had put it up for sale.
At the end of last month, however, Times Of India announced it was giving Absolute "long-term backing" and withdrawing it from sale.
Absolute Radio COO Clive Dickens told Music Week that speculation over a sale - "99% of which was made up" - had led to a "mini rain cloud" over Absolute's Golden Square headquarters.
"With that cloud of speculation now formally removed we can get on with what we have been doing: building a great music and entertainment brand for the UK," he added. "You can expect a lot of product announcements over the coming weeks."
First, however, is the news that the company is to publish its "impacts" - essentially listening figures for every track on its playlists, which take into account when they were played - every Monday.
It is a move that mirrors the decision by Box TV, announced last week, to publish viewing stats for individual music videos.
However, Absolute is going even further in its search for transparency: it will use Radiomonitor data to measure the audience that each playlisted song gets on the Absolute Network and compare this to the impact on Xfm, Radio 1, Radio 2 and 6 Music.
For example, Dickens said Kasbian's Days Are Forgotten was played 78 times in the previous week across the Xfm network, 34 times on the Absolute network on 15 times on Radio 1. The impact figures for the track, however, were 1m on Xfm, 2.2m on Absolute and 11m on Radio 1.
"We want to make sure people know Absolute Radio plays a key role in playing new music," Dickens said, pointing out that the track's impact figure on Radio 1 was only five times that of Absolute, not ten or more times as people might suppose by their relative size.
The initiative fits neatly into Absolute's intention to be more open and share more information about the station, a way of thinking that has led to innovations such as the popular Compare My Radio website, as well as inviting listeners into playlist meetings and publishing the One Golden Square blog.
"In the spirit of innovation and data, we thought it was a nice way to give the music industry accountability of the impact of new music played on Absolute Radio," Dickens explained.
As for developments over the coming weeks, Dickens said that Absolute's history should serve as a clue for its future plans.
This, he explained, would mean more innovation in digital, mobile and apps, as well as advancing its plans for offering digital listeners personalised ads.
One idea that Dickens said had already proved a success was the company's syndication of Frank Skinner's Saturday morning show for the main Absolute station across its entire network. The show has been re-engineered so that the music played changes according to which station the listener is tuning in to.
"We did it for the first time last Saturday and it really works," Dickens said.
