Commenting on the results, Nigel Newton, Chief Executive, said:

In line with the Company's growth strategy, Bloomsbury has made significant progress in developing the Academic & Professional division, most notably with the acquisition of Hart Publishing. Our Adult division enjoyed a very good interim result, reflecting an impressive new book programme including And the Mountains Echoed by Khaled Hosseini and The Bone Season by Samantha Shannon, as well as a flourishing cookery list.
We start the second half with a strong programme including MasterChef: The Finalists and The Signature of All Things by Elizabeth Gilbert."
