Consumer division drives Bloomsbury revenues

18 July 2017 07:18

Bloomsbury said its trading results for the three months ended 31 May show total revenues were up 19% year on year (13% at constant currencies) driven by its Consumer division.

In the non-consumer division sales of digital resources were up by 16%.

The company said the board expected profit for the financial year to be in line with its forecasts.

It said the first quarter traditionally generated the smallest profit of the financial year.

Top selling titles in the quarter included A Court of Wings and Fury by Sarah J. Maas, the Harry Potter series, Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman, Tom Kerridge's Dopamine Diet and The Strange Death of Europe by Douglas Murray.

It said Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World by Kate Pankhurst was the biggest selling children's non-fiction title in the UK in the calendar year to 3 June (Source: Nielsen Bookscan).
