Random House and Penguin Merge!
News Article from USA Today
Two of the largest book publishers -- Penguin, home to Patricia Cornwell and Nora Roberts, and Random House, which publishes E.L. James and George R.R. Martin -- are planning to merge into the world's largest publisher in a deal announced Monday.
If approved by government regulators, the merger would combine the two publishers' parent companies, the British-owned Pearson and the German-owned Bertelsmann.
The merger also heads off a bid by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp., which owns publisher HarperCollins, to buy Pearson for $1.6 billion.
For the media giants, challenged by the rise of e-books and Amazon's aggressive discount pricing, the merger would produce economies of scale as they combine operations, such as marketing and distribution.
The new joint venture would publish about 25% of all books in the U.S. But what the consolidation means for readers and authors isn't as clear. See more of the article HERE
