Led By U.S., Bloomsbury Has Surprising Start to Fiscal 2021: “In a financial performance the publisher acknowledged was unexpected, revenue at Bloomsbury Publishing rose by 18% in the first four months of fiscal 2021, which began on March 1. Bloomsbury released the four-month results ahead of its annual meeting today…. By market, the U.S. had the strongest performance, with sales up 38% in the period, while revenue in the U.K. increased 16%. Those gains offset a 1% decline in Australia and a 70% plunge in sales in India due to what Bloomsbury said was the ‘severe impact of government lockdowns.'” via Publishers Weekly
