Record sales for Edinburgh University Press
The University’s publishing subsidiary has reported a record year of sales in its latest financial results.
Growth at Edinburgh University Press was driven by strong a performance from the books area, as the company published almost 200 new titles.
Sales rose in most regions of the world, particularly the UK and Europe.
Total revenues for the year to the end of July were £3.22 million.
The figures reflect an increase of 12 per cent year-on-year, according to pre-audited accounts.
Print book sales increased 13 per cent to £1.86 million, while e-book sales rose by 20 per cent, accounting for almost one-fifth of total book revenues.
Journal sales were also strong, the firm reported.
Net profit increased 15 per cent since last year to £100,000, including £30,000 of journal investment made during the year.
This is a strong set of results … we will publish more than 200 new books and 42 journals next year, so we are well placed to continue the progress made.
