'Solid' First Quarter for Hachette UK
Hachette UK has had a "solid start to the year for sales", the company's c.e.o. Tim Hely Hutchinson has said.
He was speaking as Hachette's parent company Lagardere released its results for the first quarter of 2014.
Lagardere said results for its publishing arm across the world, which includes Hachette UK, were down 6.3% on a reported basis, due "mostly to the comparison effect with a first quarter 2013 that benefited from many bestsellers (specifically the Fifty Shades trilogy, which had sold 1.8m copies in France)".
