We are delighted to announce the publication of the BIC Acquisitions & Divestments Best Practice Guidelines for Digital and Physical Products. These documents are designed to offer guidance and advice on Best Practice with regards to the communication of changes of ownership via acquisition, divestment or mergers with regards to digital and/or physical books. It is expected that they will be used by acquiring, divesting and/or merging publishers primarily and referred to by retailers, data aggregators, distributors, any/all 3rd parties involved in the supply of books in the book industry. An accompanying document, “Mergers and Acquisitions: an Introduction to the Role of your Legal Team” – kindly written by Harbottle & Lewis LLP – covers the key preliminary legal work areas.
