PRH to Buy Major Spanish-Language Publisher

Posted at 8:03AM Thursday 20 Mar 2014

Penguin Random House has signed agreements with Spanish-language publisher Santillana, which is currently majority-controlled by PRISA, to acquire the trade book business of Santillana Ediciones Generales. Santillana's publishers operate in Spain, Portugal, and Brazil. The move, according to PRH, will "significantly" increase its presence in Spain and Latin America. Santillana is the only Spanish-language publisher that still has offices in the U.S. and publishes U.S.-based authors.
