Librairie Payot Switzerland In Management Buy-out

Posted at 4:22PM Friday 20 Jun 2014

The Payot bookshop chain in the French speaking part of Switzerland (12 shops in 10 cities, 270 members of staff, turnover approx. 70 Mill. Euros.) has been sold.

The owner, the French company Lagardere Services (part of the Lagardere Group) wants to concentrate on their core business which among other things is publishing. The Hachette Group is part of Lagardere.

Payot buys all its English language books via OLF. They work very closely with OLF and are one of their key customers.

Only occasionally we get some special customer orders as direct orders.
