Revenue up 29% at Kogan Page

Revenue at business book publisher Kogan Page is up 29% at the close of its latest financial year, bringing its turnover to over £6m, the company said.

Celebrating its 51st year, the publisher said it had experienced "significant growth" across all revenue channels and territories, due in part to new representation in the US which achieved 39% growth, co-publishing agreements with member organisations such as the CIPD and increased rights sales.

Further developments on a range of formats including a text searchable collections platform, CPD-accredited courses and new channels to market, such as direct selling of e-books from the company’s website, have also supported growth. The company also launched its new consumer series, Kogan Page Inspire, which looks at the impact of disruption on work and leadership in the digital age.

"We’ve had to work very hard in the last five years to restructure our content and marketing strategies and the hard work has paid off this year with significant growth across the board," said managing director, Helen Kogan.

"We’re incredibly excited about the year to come. We will continue to develop publishing lists, support diverse formats such as audio books and training courses, and look for innovative ways to reach new markets."

The publisher has not of yet finalised its end of year results and said it was unable to provide any further financial detail, such as profit.
