I assume Quarto (it is they that the article says are the backers) are putting some money up - perhaps taking a x% stake in JR Books in return for £ym

What can he mean when he says he has won the backing of L.O.

A rare snippet of information:- Those who complain that being published is all about "who you know" could point to the example of Jeremy Robson. In 33 years at the helm of Robson Books, the irrepressible Robson has made a habit of publishing his famous friends: Spike Milligan, Maureen Lipman, Joan Collins, Michael Winner, Humphrey Lyttelton and even Bill Oddie. When Robson quit his imprint's parent group, Anova, earlier this year, it was unlikely he'd slip quietly into retirement. Instead he's setting up a new independent house, JRBooks. He's won the backing of the illustrated publishing giant Quarto - whose chairman, Laurence Orbach, is, somewhat inevitably, his old school friend.

The trading update yesterday means they should make at least £7.0m pre tax in 2006 for EPS of 21p+. As usual little interest though I took the opportunity to add 5k before JL in the FT mentions it.

Not a lot has been written about this company. The directors own a good percentage of the shares and are consequentially cautious about taking on too much risk. They stated at the interims that they should meet forecasts which are £4.18m after tax. That makes a foreward PE of 8.5. This year they have eliminated the losses at the magazine business and are hopeful of making another substantial acquisition. This risks are that they are quite heavily geared and that 50% of the turnover is in USA ($ risk). They have hedged against interest rate rises. I think the loans are in $s so a fall in the dollar could be offset by that their debt would be reduced.

Yes and a John Lee stock - he mentioned it in his FT column recently as he is a holder and is a fan....surprisingly never been much interest in this share though.

Quarto at 200p now (up 8% today) has a hidden assett. It owns the copyright to a huge catalogue of previously published books. It can adapt redesign or reprint any of these books to suit the market requirements . It owns The 'Atkins diet" rights (I believe). and lots of geography /cookery /garden books. The value which is not stated in its accounts is the" back copyrighted catalogue" of Books which it owns. It will be swallowed up one day by a company wanting to get the Copyrighted Cataogue. Good investment DYOR

I only wish i was able to do the same but will have to wait for the divi to reinvest.Nice to see a small rise on the back of those comments after Waterstones hit confidence last week.The UK book market is looking a little shakey at present but with the right purchases that can be overcome.

John Lee in his FT column says he's been buying more:- "I've also bought more shares in shrewdly managed book publisher Quarto, which with its single figure price/earnings ratio is trading well below those of its peers"

Snippet in today's Mail with Oriel Securites saying BUY at £2.03 with a re-rating overdue.

Any views on interims? A few sellers have jumped ship at the first signs of tough trading but with growth still apace they might have gone a little to soon. Another purchase could happen at any time bolstering profits.

Been steadily increasing the divi for a couple of years now,sure that will continue.Recent results have also tended to beat expectations and would not bet against it this time as well.

Price started to drop earlier today until buyers returned including myself and kept it steady.Yes interims should be interesting with acquistions under the spotlight and perhaps a small divi increase.

Interims released on 20th August last year,notice of results will probably be issued this week-should focus a few investors.

I've been buying recently (fortunately before today) on the back of:- - currency movements (weak dollar cost the co. 500k stg last year) - acquisitions - organic title growth - less dilution due to not all Pref holders converting - debt fixed in USD (so no additional cost if US Rates increase tomorrow) .....perhaps with JL updates in the FT this co. will get the exposure it deserves.

Perhaps we will finally get that racy PE of 10 before results!
