11% Of Hachette's Sales Are Digital; 20% At Random House
Lagardére, parent company of book publisher Hachette, and Bertelsmann, parent company of book publisher Random House, both announced financial results for the first six months of 2013. There’s less digital stuff from Bertelsmann. The company just noted that at Random House Germany, digital now accounts for 10 percent of revenues. Worldwide the figure is around 20 percent, company spokesman Stuart Applebaum told me.
