Pearson and Bertelsmann Announce Completion of Joint Venture Between Penguin and Random House to Create Penguin Random House

Pearson and Bertelsmann announced the completion of the joint venture between Penguin and Random House to create Penguin Random House. Penguin Random House will be the first truly global publishing company with operations in the US, Canada, UK, India, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay, Colombia and Chile. The new company employs more than 10,000 people and publishes more than 15,000 new titles every year across 250 imprints. It publishes many of the world's bestselling authors, including more than 70 Nobel Prize laureates. Pearson and Bertelsmann believe that the combined organization will have a stronger platform and greater resources to invest in rich content, new digital publishing models and high-growth emerging markets. The organization will generate synergies from shared resources such as warehousing, distribution, printing and central functions. Pearson and Bertelsmann intend that the combined organization's level of organic investment in authors and new product models will exceed the total investment of Penguin and Random House as independent publishing houses.
