News from PANZ

Random House, Penguin NZ merger decision due Friday

 The Commerce Commission knows it as Bertelsmann SE & Co. KGaA and Pearson plc rather than the more familiar names, but the clearance to merge decision should be announced on Friday 15 February.

Alannah Kalafatelis, the Commission’s communications manager, says that it is always possible there could be a delay in releasing the decision. “We also then produce ‘written reasons’ – essentially the full decision with everything that’s been considered. It is often a couple of weeks after the media release before the decision document is published.”

PANZ workshop – schedule released today

 Be sure to diary 8 March, when the PANZ Publishers Navigating Change workshop is held at the Villa Maria Conference Centre. A programme and registration details will be released later today.
