No they are correct unless you qualify the tax to pay is 15% so 2.85p dividend. They originally took 30% of me until i asked the registrars to look into it . Most U.K taxpayers will pay 15%. Takes the shine off the dividend a bit.

What's the chances of Chris Mills making another offer if he doesn't get his way at the special meeting?

Yes John Lee has been a backer of Quarto for years. Not surprised that Mills has taken the opportunity to try and remove Orbach from the board again but can't see it getting anywhere near the level needed. I believe a change is forming at Quarto and we may see a break up or offer for the company at some point, heaven knows we could do with a boost in the shareprice. The market yet again failing to reward a soundly run dividend paying company with an excellent management team.

Quarto shares have been depressed since a few shares were sold before ex-div. Perhaps those sellers could not be bothered to complete the paper work for the USA certificate for withholding tax. A few small share purchases after payment of dividend haven't increased the share price , MMs perhaps have surplus stock. For me these shares are way undervalued. From the balance sheet net assets are around £1.5 and if adjusted for internally generated backlist would be around £3. Using EPS of 39cents= 25p the shares should be 8*25p = £2. That does not allow for cash flow being greater than profits at around £4m per year which is used to pay off short debt of $81m=£50m. A simple solution for a large corporate investor would be to refinance the debt to 20 years and enjoy the £4m per year dividend.

Another solid 5% ahead THE QUARTO GROUP, INC Q1 INTERIM MANAGEMENT STATEMENT Quarto (Full List: QRT.L), one of the largest international co-edition book publishers based in London, announces its Q1 Interim Management Statement which includes unaudited revenues and profits for the 3 months ended March 31, 2012.

The Book Publishing segment, based entirely in the English-language markets, helped by improved results in the US, and the UK, increased operating profit by 9%. Digital revenues increased threefold during the period, accounting for almost 3.5% of the segments revenue. The International Co-Edition segment continues to encounter some softness in major markets. Revenues grew by 1% and the normal seasonal operating loss was trimmed by 7%. For the Trailing Twelve Months to March 31, 2012, revenues rose by 5% to $187.4 million and pretax profit was up by 4.6% at $12.2 million.

Book deal opens new chapter in nation's cultural exchange Updated: 2012-04-19 10:36 By Zhang Haizhou in London (China Daily) Comments(0) Print Mail Large Medium Small 0 Book readers in China and the West will have a greater opportunity to experience each other's culture, after a key deal was signed between leading Chinese and British publishers. Qingdao Publishing Group and Quarto Publishing agreed to co-edit and publish more books, as well as to collaborate on commissioning works on new subjects and ideas. Following the deal, signed on Tuesday during this year's London Book Fair, Meng Mingfei, chairman of Qingdao Publishing Group, said his company also hoped to import some copyrights to China. "Chinese publishers still have a lot to learn from their Western colleagues," said Meng, adding that more books were imported to China from the West than vice versa. For the first time, China was the Market Focus country at the three-day fair, which ended on Wednesday. About 180 Chinese publishers had gathered in the middle of London's Earls Court Exhibition Center to showcase their range of books. The deal between Qingdao and Quarto comes at a time when China is determined to make culture a key sector. China's cultural sector will grow to become a pillar industry by 2015, Sun Zhijun, deputy minister of the publicity department of the Communist Party of China Central Committee, said earlier this year when releasing the Outline of China's Cultural Reform and Development in the 12th Five-Year Plan (2011-15). Robert Morley, creative director of Quarto Publishing, said he believed China would become "a huge market" for his company. Quarto publishes 600 to 700 illustrated books a year on a variety of subjects, including art, crafts, gardening and lifestyle. According to Morley, the group, together with Qingdao, is considering expanding its "1,001" series with a book on top 1,001 places to visit in China. Meng also singled out the 1,001 series as books that Qingdao was interested in taking to China.
