Hachette is a French publisher.
It was founded in 1826 by Louis Hachette as Brédif, a bookshop and publishing company.
It became L. Hachette et Compagnie on 1 January 1846, Librairie Hachette in 1919, and Hachette SA in 1977.
It was acquired by the Lagardère Group in 1981.
In 1992 the publishing assets of Hachette SA were grouped into a subsidiary called Hachette Livre the flagship imprint of Lagardère Publishing.
Hachette has its headquarters in the 15th arrondissement of Paris.
In 1996 it merged with the Hatier group.
In 2004, Hachette acquired dictionary publisher Éditions Larousse.
In 2006, it expanded into the United States when it purchased Time Warner's book-publishing division, which was then renamed Hachette Book Group USA.
In June 2013, Hachette announced that it would acquire Hyperion Books from Disney.
It is one of the largest English-language publishers, known as the "Big Five".
In August 1414, Amazon.com stopped taking pre-order sales of Hachette books, citing a breakdown in negotiations over commission and ebook pricing.
According to Hachette, Amazon had also stopped discounting its books, sending prices of Hachette titles in the U.S. to more than twice what they were selling for in the UK.
HarperCollins Publishers LLC is one of the world's largest publishing companies and is part of the "Big Five" English-language publishing companies, alongside Hachette, Holtzbrinck/Macmillan, Penguin Random House, and Simon & Schuster.
The company is headquartered in New York City and is a subsidiary of News Corp.
The company name is a combination of several publishing firm names: Harper & Row, an American publishing company acquired in 1987, whose own name was the result of an earlier merger of Harper & Brothers (founded 1817) and Row,
Peterson & Company; together with UK publishing company William Collins, Sons (founded 1819), acquired in 1990.
The worldwide CEO of HarperCollins is Brian Murray.
HarperCollins has publishing groups in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and India.
The company publishes many different imprints, both former independent publishing houses and new imprints.
This is a list of book distributors, companies that act as distributors for book publishers, selling primarily to the book trade.
The list includes defunct and merged/acquired companies, and distributors whose primary business is not books, such as comic books.
The companies may provide exclusive distribution rights, or act as a wholesaler or warehouser of publisher's titles.
Many of the companies distribute other products, and some also sell directly to the public.
Book distributors offer a consolidated list of publisher's titles, such that bookstores can purchase from a wider range of publishers than if they had to open separate accounts with each publisher, who often require a minimum order that the bookstore cannot meet.
Most small or independent publishers have relations with a distributor, including self-published authors, who often use services like Amazon.com to sell to the public.
The large publishing companies, including the "Big Five" (Penguin Random House, Hachette, Macmillan, HarperCollins and Simon & Schuster), act as distributors for the numerous imprints they have acquired over the years.
