Sorry not the case. FL died several years ago but had a passion for books and loyalty to her staff. Unfortunately a great eye for books and not enough business acumen. Well lacked the ability to be rutheless and take tough decisions.. Quite true Nicholl saved the company after her death probably for sentimental reasons as much as anything. He shared a rare ability to manage an independent publisher and also had great eye. He returned the business to profit with Wainwright etc. He's had enough and sadly they are being thrown to the wolves. Good for QRT? Probably. Good for publishing? I don't think so. Head of QRT is a right piece of work. Off now, regards

Her husband seems happy with it. I'm sure he'd have reconsidered if his wife was that against it. Do you know it wasnt always her aim to sell it off?

What a sad day for one of the few independent publishers. Frances Lincoln will be turning in her grave.

Another solid increase in revenue and profit with these results and this Quarto Acquires Award-Winning British Book Publisher Quarto (Full List: QRT.L), one of the largest international co-edition book publishers, has acquired British book publisher Frances Lincoln Limited ("FLL") for GBP4.5 million in cash. FLL is well known for its award-winning children's list and its authoritative horticultural titles. FLL has a backlist of over 1500 titles and published 150 books last year. This acquisition more than doubles the size of Quarto's UK-based book publishing revenues. FLL reported audited profit before tax of GBP619,000, net assets of GBP3.8 million and gross assets of GBP5.9 million for the year ended 31 March 2011. FLL has a distribution business handling sales and fulfilment for a number of third party publishers and management anticipate merging this with Quarto's existing sales and distribution activities handling titles from US imprints in the UK and continental Europe. Commenting on the acquisition, Chairman and CEO, Laurence Orbach, said: "We are delighted to announce the acquisition of Frances Lincoln Limited. FLL is a highly respected publishing business particularly well known as the publisher of Alfred Wainwright, Julia Bradbury, Christopher Lloyd and many other well regarded authors. It complements Quarto's existing UK publishing business, several imprints trading under the Aurum name, and more than doubles the scale of our presence in the UK. The acquisition is in keeping with our strategy to further expand our already broad offering of niche content." -

Sentiment is dreadful here. I try to find a comparison. Is it like painters becoming redundant when the camera was invented? If we were only able to read an electronic screen someone would invent the book. I won't tempt fate but hope results tomorrow are unsurprising.

These are great results: 1) cash generated and paying off debt £4.5m + dividend 2) real growth particularly in BRIC countries 3) Intellectual property as good as any inflation proof asset/commodity 4) Company using new technology and taking opportunities

After a quick look at the accounts I can't see why John Lee invests in this company. I have only had a quick look at the latest accounts and recoiled in horror. Quarto was started in 1976 and quoted in 1986. The balance sheet shows equity of £18.5m, borrowings of £74m and £56m of goodwill, including expenditure on titles yet to be published. The turnover is only £107m and return on capital is poor. It seems to me that the company has raised money from shareholders and bankers to buy assets of doubtful value whilst returning some of the money as dividends and interest. What happens if the music stops?

I've been away all week with no internet. Tried to look in on my wife's Iphone, ADVFN app is rubbish on that, they need to take a leaf out of Shareprice.co.uk app. Anyhow (rant over) nice to come back to this rise and the div payment.
