Brill acquires three leading academic journals

Publishing
2016, March 22
Leiden (NL) / Boston (MA) / Singapore (SG) – 22 March 2016

Three of Italy’s leading academic journals join Brill’s publishing program.

Professor Michele Bernardini, the Director of the Department of Asian, African and Mediterranean studies of the Università degli Studi di Napoli “L’Orientale” signed an agreement by which three leading academic journals join Brill’s publishing programs on Asian studies, Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies, and African Studies. The journals will start publishing with Brill, both online and in print, in 2016. Previously the journals were published by the “Orientale” itself.

About the journals
The Annali, sezione Orientale are being published since 1929. The scope includes the languages, literatures, arts, history and material culture of Asia, Africa and the Mediterranean. The time period covered ranges from the Ancient Near East to the modern period. Full-size articles and smaller research notes are accepted in English, Italian, French, German, and Spanish. The journal is edited by Gianfrancesco Lusini (Naples).

Eurasian Studies focuses on the history of Eurasia, covering the period from the rise of Islam to the outbreak of the First World War. It encourages the publication of unedited documents, sources and literary texts, both in facsimile and in transcription. A substantial section is devoted to the review of recent publications. Founded at the Istituto per l’Oriente C.A. Nallino in Rome in 1994, the journal is edited by Michele Bernardini (Naples) and Jürgen Paul (Halle, Germany).

Ming Qing Yanjiu, founded in 1992, is a peer reviewed journal dedicated primarily to advanced studies of pre-modern China. This journal provides a forum for scholars from a variety of fields related to late imperial and early republican period that aim to have a cross-disciplinary discourse. Contributions in sociology, literature, psychology, anthropology, history, geography, linguistics, semiotics, political science, and philosophy, as well as book reviews are welcome. The journal is edited by Donatella Guida (Naples).

Reactions
Professor Donatella Guida, the editor-in-chief of Ming Qing Yanjiu: “Having Brill as a partner creates a wealth of opportunities for our editorial project. Over the course of the last decades, Ming Qing Yanjiu has built an increasing network of scholars and readers all over the world, aiming to become a trusted space for the study of late-imperial China; now, thanks to Brill's long-standing international prestige as a top-tier scholarly publisher, we will be able to consolidate our past results, at the same time setting wider and more ambitious goals for the future. For a journal like ours, which is devoted to a specific - albeit chronologically and thematically vast - field of study, this collaboration really marks the opening of a new and exciting path, especially in terms of visibility and circulation.”

“We are very happy to include this cross-disciplinary journal in our portfolio on China Studies,” says Senior Acquisitions Qin Higley of Brill’s Boston office about Ming Qing Yanjiu.

Michele Bernardini: “The Annali of the Naples University “L’Orientale” is one of the oldest Italian Journals devoted to Oriental and African Studies. Since the beginnings of the 20th century the journal has published articles on archaeology, philology, history, literature, produced by the international academic milieu. The new partnership with Brill will combine the journal’s long-established experience with a larger diffusion in the global academic environment.”

Brill launches Major Reference Work
Publishing
2016, March 24
Leiden (NL) / Boston (MA) / Singapore (SG) – 24 March 2016

Brill launches Major Reference Work 'Textual History of the Bible'

Judaism would not be what it is today without the Bible. This foundation of Judaism has been transmitted and translated by both Jews and Christian over three millennia. The Dead Sea Scrolls and other ancient witnesses show that scribes and translators have created manifold texts and translations. While doing so they wrote and rewrote the texts, inserted their interpretations and occasionally even erred. The so-called "text of the Bible" has a multitude of ancient translations. The scholars, students and the interested public that want to be informed about these areas are often at a loss in their search for an appropriate reference work. Until today there was no such comprehensive reference work to study the Bible in its many versions and to understand its complicated textual history.

Brill, the international scholarly publisher, has launched a groundbreaking Major Reference Work for the study of textual history of the Jewish Bible and the Christian Old Testament: Textual History of the Bible. It aims to bring together all available information regarding the textual history, textual character, translation techniques, manuscripts, and the importance of each textual witness for each book of the Hebrew Bible, including its deuterocanonical scriptures. In addition, it includes entries on the history of research, the editorial histories, as well as its auxiliary fields such a papyrology, codicology, and linguistics. THB is an excellent starting point for text-critical analysis of all biblical versions and books, as it offers the reader information about all the textual evidence for a specific biblical book and all the evidence for a specific textual source in one reference work.

Professor Armin Lange, General Editor: “THB is a good starting point for text-critical analysis of all biblical versions and books because it offers the reader information about all the textual evidence for a specific biblical book and all the evidence for a specific textual source. I have had the pleasure to conduct an orchestra of the best experts in this field who feel, like I do, that this work is a unique contribution which will forever change the field and which resulted in one grand finale; volume 1 covering the books of the Hebrew canon, each with primary and secondary translations.”

Professor Emanuel Tov, co-editor of the first volume: “Due to the many discoveries of texts and important new studies, textual criticism of the Hebrew Bible and its translations is flourishing in the twenty-first century. THB brings all the new data together in up-to-date articles that give an excellent overview of current research and its many innovations will stimulate subsequent investigations.”

Senior Acquisitions Editor Suzanne Mekking praised the publication of the THB: “This reference work makes a great contribution to modern scholarship and is a jewel in the crown of Brill’s expanding list of reference works in Biblical Studies. Textual History of the Bible will be used by generations of students and scholars studying textual criticism, textual history, linguistics, the Hebrew Bible, the deuterocanonical texts, Antiquity, Ancient texts, the Ancient Greek language, Dead Sea Scrolls, Ancient Near East, Judaism, and Biblical Studies.”

Brill Starts Partnership with Kudos
Publishing

Leiden (NL) / Boston (USA) / Singapore (SG) – 8 April 2016

International publisher Brill has signed an agreement with Kudos to help authors maximize their impact. Starting April 2016, the Kudos platform will be available for all authors within Brill’s publishing program.
Kudos is a platform which allows authors to enrich their publications, and to maximize their visibility, by providing new means to engage with their digital community on social media, in just a few clicks. By providing this new service, Brill will further improve the dissemination and visibility of their high quality research.
“Our new partnership marries Brill’s long tradition in publishing high quality scholarly research with the Kudos team’s expertise in new media and its ability to help increase visibility and impact of research,” says Charlie Rapple, Sales & Marketing Director and Co-founder of Kudos. “We are proud to be working with Brill and look forward to helping their researchers broaden the reach of their work.”
"Today’s top quality service to authors asks for support in the digital world as well. Kudos helps Brill to further improve that top quality author service and at the same time creates better visibility for its publications. A valuable innovation has been added to Brill’s 333 years of publishing experience," says Peter Coebergh, EVP Sales & Marketing.
For more information, contact Caroline van Erp, Marketing Manager: erp@brill.com.
About Brill
Founded in 1683 in Leiden, the Netherlands, Brill is a leading international academic publisher in 20 main subject areas, including Middle East and Islamic Studies, Asian Studies, Classical Studies, History, Biblical and Religious Studies, Language & Linguistics, Biology, and International Law. With offices in Leiden and Boston and a representative office in Singapore, Brill today publishes 243 journals and around 1000 new books and reference works each year, available in both print and electronic form. Brill also markets a large number of primary source research collections and databases. The company’s key customers are academic and research institutions, libraries, and scholars. Brill is a publicly traded company and is listed on Euronext Amsterdam NV. For more information, visit www.brill.com.
About Kudos
Kudos is a new service that helps researchers and their institutions to measure, monitor and maximize the visibility and impact of their published articles. It builds on three core principles: that readers are increasingly struggling to filter the growing quantity of published research; that information which supports filtering – such as lay summaries and impact statements – often exists but is not made public; and that authors are well placed to increase awareness and impact of their own work, but don't always know how to do this. Kudos provides a platform for assembling or creating information to help filtering, for sharing information to drive discovery, and for measuring and monitoring the effect of these activities.

Brill Books Now Indexed by Google Scholar

Publishing

Leiden (NL) / Boston (USA) / Singapore (SG) – 11 April 2016

As one of the first publishers, Brill’s edited book volumes will be indexed by Google Scholar, the most influential web search engine for the scholarly world. Google Scholar allows users to search for digital or physical copies of articles, whether online or in libraries. It indexes full-text journal articles, technical reports, preprints, theses, books, and other scholarly documents. So far, Google Scholar has already been indexing Brill’s journal articles. As of now, this is also the case for Brill’s e-books.

Albert Schoenmaker, Senior Product Manager Platforms with Brill: “We see that Google Scholar is an important discovery tool for scholars to find our journal articles. In Brill’s main subject areas, books are an important channel for scholarly communication. Our users will welcome the enhancement of Google Scholar in relevant books in their field."

Brill has adjusted its Books and Journals platform to allow book content to be indexed by Google Scholar, thus improving the discoverability of this content. The adjustments have been made in close cooperation with platform provider Ingenta.

Justin Ackerman, Customer Services Director at Ingenta commented: “We have been working closely with Google Scholar for some time now, looking at innovative ways to link researchers with the wealth of information available via our platforms. Our work on BrillOnline should significantly improve the discovery of its book titles via the indexing facility and ultimately drive more traffic to the site as a result.”

Trading Update Q1-2016

Brill reports continued growth of digital and subscription
based products

Revenues developed as expected in the first quarter of 2016, ending up just over 2015. We continue to see healthy growth in the digital and subscription based formats - especially eBooks and reference works - and we benefited from good sales of digital primary source products. Revenue from print books decreased from the first quarter of 2015, partly due to timing differences in the publishing schedule.
Journal subscription income shows growth in line with expectations.
Earlier this year our representative office in Singapore was turned into a limited company to help us grow our business in Asia. The new set up for printing, fulfillment and distribution in North America was completed in
the first quarter and the changes are starting to contribute to results. Other measures were implemented to improve the profitability of our publishing programs such as differential pricing, pruning of underperforming book series and more efficient content management. The translation of the stronger dollar will add to these measures in 2016.
In line with company policy, Brill does not issue a concrete outlook for the year end.
Over 2015 an all cash dividend of € 1.24 will be proposed to shareholders. The AGM will take place on Thursday, May 19 th (2.00 PM) at the premises of the Company in Leiden, The Netherlands.

Brill wil autonome groei in combinatie met aanvullende overnames

Wetenschappelijk uitgever heeft scenario van circa een derde omzetgroei in 2020.

Uitgever van wetenschappelijke publicaties Brill wil de komende jaren autonoom groeien in combinatie met aanvullende acquisities. Dit heeft het bedrijf donderdag aangegeven in een toelichting op de cijfers over 2015.

In lijn met de groei wil Brill ook de operationele (EBITDA-)marge en het rendement op het geïnvesteerd kapitaal omhoog brengen.

"Om met de marge te beginnen: we waren en zijn niet tevreden met de gerapporteerde marge van 12,3 procent. Wij denken dat een bedrijf als Brill minimaal 15 procent moet kunnen halen. We hebben een scenario, in dit geval geen doelstelling, van een marge tussen 15 en 20 procent, waarbij opgemerkt dat ik geen bedrijf ken die daar boven uitkomt stelde CEO Herman Pabbruwe donderdag.

In dat scenario is een omzet voor 2020 opgenomen van circa 40 miljoen en een EBITDA-marge van 20 procent, waarbij de operationele kosten, afgelopen jaar 54 procent van de omzet, dalen naar 46 procent. Hierbij streeft Brill naar een snellere groei van de omzet dan het werkkapitaal door de jaren heen.

Aanvullende acquisities zijn bij Brill al enige tijd onderwerp van vragen, met name bij aandeelhouders. "We gaan geen onverantwoorde aankopen doen, omdat je zomaar met een boekenvoorraad opgescheept kan blijken te zitten. We kijken naar West-Europa en dan met name Duitsland, omdat daar de markt sterk versnipperd is en [we] dus veel partijen kennen, maar dat ook veel familiebedrijven herbergt. Dat laatste aspect is lastig en maakt dat je een lange adem nodig hebt, maar een voordeel is dat veel Duitse uitgeverijen de overstap willen maken naar het Engels taalgebied, waar Brill nu juist een rol in kan spelen", aldus Pabbruwe. Momenteel genereert Brill circa 10 procent van zijn omzet in Duitsland, waar het in zijn acquisitiebeleid wordt bijgestaan door een adviseur.

Brill betaalt idealiter circa één keer de omzet als het om een boekenuitgever gaat, en circa zes keer de omzet in het geval van een tijdschriftuitgever. Brill wil graag een grote uitgever inlijven, waarbij het denkt aan een omzetomvang van ongeveer 10 miljoen euro, maar Pabbruwe voegt toe dat een omvang van 50 miljoen euro managementtechnisch gesproken goed hanteerbaar is. Ter vergelijking: Brill boekte over het afgelopen jaar 31 miljoen euro omzet. Voor Pabbruwe is financiering niet het grootste punt van zorg met een sterke balans en een zeer gunstige markt voor leningen.

Pabbruwe stond donderdag even stil bij Azië, waar het bedrijf circa 12 procent van zijn omzet vandaan haalt. "India moet weliswaar beter, maar veel regio's als Vietnam, Singapore en China lopen goed en zullen de komende jaren aantrekken. Probleem met China is wel de censuur, maar zolang we puur in wetenschap en uit de zogeheten humanities [blijven], verwacht ik geen problemen. Men is in China benauwd voor tijdschriften, want die staan dichter bij pers. We mikken nu bijvoorbeeld ook op het aanbod van databases", aldus de CEO. Brill heeft momenteel in China ook negen partnerships lopen.

Pabbruwe is tevreden over de gang van zaken in Iran en Cuba, die steeds opener worden. Japan blijft met de discussie over het economisch nut van alfa-wetenschappen een punt van zorg. "Maar in zijn algemeenheid neemt het aantal wetenschappers toe. Dat gaat wel hand in hand met een stijging in specialisaties.

Hedgen

CFO Olivier de Vlam gaf donderdag aan nu ook de kosten in dollars te willen hedgen, waar het bedrijf dat al deed bij de omzet in dollars, om zo grote koersverschillen te kunnen elimineren. "We gaan dat nu ook aan de kostenkant doen, zinnig, omdat we relatief veel kosten in dollars maken en met een hedge maakt het Brill minder gevoelig voor koersschommelingen van de dollar ten opzichte van de euro, en belangrijk, kunnen we onze marges op peil houden", aldus De Vlam.

Pabbruwe verwacht veel van het sales & marketing-team. "Dat wordt strak aangestuurd. We willen daarmee proberen aan tafel te komen bij partijen die deel uitmaken van het middenveld die een heel pakket afnemen, de zogeheten big deal. Dat is lastig, omdat universiteiten en bibliotheken druk ervaren op hun budgetten, maar we bieden titels en journals die niet altijd gemist kunnen worden, ook al wordt de tendens onder afnemers bepaald door de vraag vanuit de wetenschappers en niet door de behoefte compleet te zijn. En verder gaan we ook scherper aan de wind zeilen met onze productie, waarbij datgene wat niet of niet meer rendeert, afvalt", aldus Pabbruwe.

De Vlam wil in de financiële verslaglegging van Brill voortaan meer duidelijkheid verschaffen over eenmalige omzetgerelateerde gebeurtenissen. Eenmalige orders, zoals we die bijvoorbeeld ook in het vierde kwartaal van 2015 uit Kazachstan ontvingen, kleuren het beeld, maar de markt moet die niet als structureel zien, en dat willen we graag transparant maken, aldus de CFO.

Het aandeel Brill noteert donderdagmiddag onveranderd op 26,70 euro.

New OA Brill journal and book series with HBKU’s Centre for Islamic Legislation and Ethics from 2017

Last week in Doha Mr. Herman Pabbruwe, the CEO of Brill, Dr. Khaled Letaief, Provost of the Hamad bin Khalifa University, and Dr. Tariq Ramadan, the Director of the Research Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics which is part of the Qatar Foundation’s Hamad Bin Khalifa University, signed a contract for their collaboration on a new journal called Journal of Islamic Ethics. The new journal will be published by Brill, both online and in print, in two issues per year from 2017. The journal will be completely in Open Access and is sponsored by the Qatar Foundation.

A book series will cover related subjects and will also be published in Open Access.

About the journal
The focus of the journal is on the ethical approaches embedded in Islamic philosophy, theology, mysticism and jurisprudence as well as Islamic civilization in general, and, more particularly, on the principles and methods (to be) followed in applying these approaches to various sectors of contemporary social life. These fields include: Arts, Environment, Economics, Education, Finance, Gender, Media, Medicine, Migration & Human Rights, Politics and Psychology. The Journal will strongly focus on thematic issues on current events as well as on individual empirical case studies. The journal welcomes all voices, regardless of their specific positions or backgrounds, as long as they successfully undergo the double-blind peer-review process. Articles will be accepted in English, French and Arabic and extensive abstracts will be provided in English.

Reactions
Professor Mohammed Ghaly, the editor-in-chief of the Journal of Islamic Ethics: “Journal of Islamic Ethics (JIE) is to be an international podium for high-quality academic research in the field of Islamic Ethics. JIE will be open for academic researchers coming from different disciplines with a keen interest in making seminal contributions to this field. Building upon the reputation of Brill, CILE aspires to concretize its vision by putting Islamic Ethics at the heart of modern scholarship and reaching out to academics worldwide.”

Mr. Pabbruwe, the CEO of Brill: “We are very happy with this new partnership. It reflects both current Open Access developments and the role of Qatar as an academic center of excellence in the region.”

“This collaboration is a perfect fit with Brill’s publishing strategy to continue to develop new journals and other publications in emerging scholarly fields within Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies”, says Maurits van den Boogert, the senior acquisitions editor responsible for the new journal at Brill. “The Journal of Islamic Ethics will be a valuable addition to Brill’s existing publications on law and theology in the modern Islamic world.”

Brill praat met boze aandeelhouders

Gepubliceerd op 2 jun 2016 om 15:02 | Views: 1.224

AMSTERDAM (AFN) - Wetenschappelijk uitgever Brill praat met aandeelhouders over manieren om ze meer zeggenschap te geven. Dat zei topman Herman Pabbruwe donderdag tegen AFN. Een hoogoplopend meningsverschil met grootaandeelhouders Mont Cervin, Kempen en Todlin over de inspraak leidde onlangs tot schorsing van de aandeelhoudersvergadering voor onbepaalde tijd.

Beleggers voelen zich onnodig beperkt in hun zeggenschap door een aantal beschermingsmaatregelen van Brill tegen overnames. Zo hebben zij certificaten in plaats van aandelen, wat betekent dat ze geen direct stemrecht hebben. Overleg daarover leverde eerder niets op.

Pabbruwe spreekt tegen dat het meningsverschil leidde tot een frontale botsing zoals de Vereniging van Effectenbezitters de ruzie omschreef. ,,Maar het was voor een vergadering van Brill wel onrustig." De dubbele beschermingswal, die naast de certificaten bestaat uit de mogelijkheid tot uitgifte van preferente aandelen, is volgens hem nodig om een kleine vennootschap als Brill goed te beschermen.

Pabbruwe zegt dat de vergadering binnen enkele weken wordt hervat. Het direct schrappen van de certificaatregeling is volgens hem geen optie. Andere mogelijkheden voor meer zeggenschap van de beleggers zijn wel bespreekbaar. Eventuele aanpassingen zouden voor het einde van het jaar kunnen worden doorgevoerd.

Shanghai Library Acquires the Blaeu-Van der Hem Facsimile Atlas from Brill

Publishing
2016, May 24

Leiden (NL) / Boston (USA) / Singapore (SG) – 24 May 2016
The Rare Books Collection of Shanghai Library acquires the facsimile edition of the famous Blaeu-Van der Hem Atlas, produced in a limited 8-volume edition, distributed by Brill.

The superbly produced facsimile edition of the famous Blaeu-Van der Hem Atlas is unique for several reasons. The original, without doubt one of the most significant and unique atlases in the world, is kept at the Austrian National Library in Vienna. In 2004, UNESCO added it to the tangible listing of World Heritage, also referred to as the ‘Memory of the World’, to preserve it for the future. The facsimile edition contains the most important volumes: the so-called four ‘secret VOC atlases’, volume 42 on China, and notably other parts of Asia, Africa and America.

Shanghai Library in more than one way is a deserving location to house one of the copies of this atlas, particularly the volume on China. The festive launch took place in the Bibliotheca Zi-Ka-Wei, or Xujiahui Library, which was established by the Jesuits in 1830 and contained many of the published writings of the Jesuits who were based in Mainland China. One of these was the work from Martino Martini (1614- 1661). Professor Ma Yong, a member of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, said about Martini: "Martini was the first to study the history and geography of China with rigorous scientific objectivity; the extent of his knowledge of the Chinese culture, the accuracy of his investigations, the depth of his understanding of things Chinese are examples for the modern sinologists".


At the festive launch the deputy director of Shanghai Library, Professor Zhou, and Brill’s Representative, Mrs. Kanis presented the atlas and held speeches on the importance of this acquisition. The presentation was attended by management and staff of Shanghai Library as well as library representatives of the various Shanghai Libraries, including Fudan University, Shanghai University, Shanghai Normal University, Jiao Tong University, the District Library, etc.
For more information on this acquisition or the atlas, contact Ms. Liang Su at Shanghai Library (sliang@libnet.sh.cn, +86-21-54560585) or Ms. Liesbeth Kanis at Brill (kanis@brill.com, +65-82981548).

Journal of Greek Linguistics Moving to Full Open Access

Publishing
2016, June 09
Leiden (NL) / Boston (USA) / Singapore (SG) – 9 June 2016

Brill, the international scholarly publisher, is pleased to announce that the Journal of Greek Linguistics, which is indexed by Scopus and Web of Science, has become a full Open Access publication. To help the journal transition to a full gold Open Access journal, Brill will sponsor the journal by setting the Article Publication Charge (APC) at a lower rate for the first three years and by waiving the charges for authors unable to raise the funds for publication. APCs will be charged for all new submissions to the journal. In addition to the current volume, all back volumes will now be freely available.

The editors of the journal, Dag Haug, Brian Joseph and Anna Roussou: “As scholars and academics, we are in the knowledge business — we create, organize, and disseminate knowledge through our research, teaching, and editing. Getting knowledge into the hands of people who want it and to whom it will make a difference matters to all of us, so we applaud this move to Open Access for our journal.”

Senior Acquisitions Editor Irene van Rossum is looking forward to continued cooperation with the editors on the journal: “The Journal of Greek Linguistics is an integral part of Brill’s list of publications on the Greek language from ancient to modern times. With the move to Open Access we hope to stimulate further research into the rich history and modern uses of the language.”

For more information on the journal, please see www.brill.com/jgl. The online edition of the journal can be accessed through booksandjournals.brillonline.com/cont... For information on Open Access publishing at Brill, please see www.brill.com/openaccess.

Brill wil geen overnameprooi zijn

Gepubliceerd op 16 jun 2016 om 15:15 | Views: 339

AMSTERDAM (AFN) - Wetenschappelijk uitgever Brill wil geen overnameprooi zijn. Dat zei topman Herman Pabbruwe donderdag tegen AFN op Beursplein 5 waar de 120e verjaardag van het 333 jaar oude Brill als beursfonds werd gevierd. Hij verdedigde daarmee de stevige beschermingsconstructie die het bedrijf heeft ingebouwd.

,,Onafhankelijkheid past goed bij de dingen die we doen", aldus de topman. ,,Sommige van onze auteurs werken tientallen jaren aan een publicatie. Dan is het zaak dat je voorspelbaar stabiel bent."


Van Pabbruwe was enigszins verrast over de ophef die onlangs ontstond over de structuur van de onderneming en met name over de beschermingsconstructies. Deze zijn volgens Pabbruwe niet voor niets. Naast gebruik te maken van certificaten bestaat deze uit de mogelijkheid tot uitgifte van preferente aandelen. Ook heeft Brill een uitgesproken stakeholders oriëntatie.

Ophef

Een meningsverschil met grootaandeelhouders Mont Cervin, Kempen en Todlin over de inspraak leidde onlangs tot schorsing van de aandeelhoudersvergadering voor onbepaalde tijd. Meerdere certificaathouders zetten vraagtekens bij de beschermingsconstructies. Zij voelen zich daardoor onnodig beperkt in hun zeggenschap.

,,Ik had niet verwacht dat er zo'n ophef zou ontstaan, maar ik snap dat aandeelhouders zich roerden", zo gaf Pabbruwe aan. Hij vond vooral de timing een probleem. ,,De commissie-Van Manen komt waarschijnlijk kort na de zomer met voorstellen voor herziening van de code voor goed ondernemingsbestuur. Die dwingt bedrijven uit te leggen op welke punten en waarom zij zich niet aan de code houden. In mijn ogen was het logisch geweest om daarop te wachten."

Resultaten

Anderzijds erkent de topman dat de resultaten van Brill de laatste tijd wat vlak zijn en dat het dan meer te verwachten is dat aandeelhouders van zich laten horen. ,,Maar resultaten laten zich nu eenmaal niet langs een lineaal leggen." Evengoed gaf Pabbruwe aan niet doof te zijn voor de kritieken en gaat met aandeelhouders in gesprek.

Anders dan de Vereniging van Effectenbezitters graag zou zien, zullen de verkennende gesprekken niet in volledige openheid gebeuren. ,,Iedereen die het aangaat moet wel in alle vertrouwelijkheid zijn zegje kunnen doen", aldus Pabbruwe. ,,Het debat vindt in de aandeelhoudersvergadering plaats."

Brill Launches New Journal: Philological Encounters

Publishing
2016, June 30
Leiden (NL) / Boston (USA) / Singapore (SG) – 30 June 2016

International publisher Brill launches a new journal in 2016: Philological Encounters, in collaboration with the research program Zukunftsphilologie: Revisiting the Canons of Textual Scholarship (Forum Transregionale Studien/Freie Universität Berlin).

Brill adds the peer-reviewed journal to its growing publishing portfolio in Philology, Intellectual History and the History of Scholarship, which spans across all Brill publishing areas, such as Asian Studies, Middle East and Islamic Studies, and Language and Literature. Philological Encounters will consist of 4 issues per year, with an accompanying book series of the same title. The journal will be available both online on booksandjournals.brillonline.com/ and in print.

Philological Encounters Philological Encounters
Philological Encounters’ advisory board member Prof. Sheldon Pollock (Columbia University) said that "Philology is being reborn across the globe. But if it is to fully develop its new and dynamic identity—as a transhistorical and transregional, comparative and critical discipline—and thereby reclaim its central role in both the academy and public life, we must have a journal that fully embodies those aspirations. Philological Encounters is that journal, and world philologists welcome it with open arms."

“This new journal is a perfect fit for Brill’s publishing program,” says Kathy van Vliet, Acquisitions Editor and responsible for the new journal at Brill. “Philological Encounters welcomes contributions of critical and comparative perspectives that integrate textual scholarship and the study of language from across the world and across all disciplines within the Humanities.”

Winstgevendheid Brill in de lift

Outlook 2016 ongewijzigd.

Koninklijke Brill heeft in het eerste halfjaar van 2016 een duidelijk hogere omzet en winstgevendheid gerealiseerd. Dit bleek dinsdag nabeurs uit voorlopige resultaten van de uitgever van wetenschappelijke publicaties.

"De eerste zes maanden was er sterke groei in digitale producten, wat krimp bij de fysieke boeken compenseerde", aldus Brill.

De omzet in de eerste zes maanden van dit jaar steeg op jaarbasis met 8,8 procent van 13,2 miljoen naar 14,4 miljoen euro.

Het bedrijfsresultaat (EBITDA) verdubbelde ruimschoots van 0,8 miljoen naar 1,7 miljoen euro, waarbij de EBITDA-marge verbeterde van 6,0 naar 11,5 procent. Met name de hogere omzet was volgens de uitgever oorzaak van de "scherp gestegen" winstgevendheid.

Brill hield de outlook voor 2016 ongewijzigd. Voor dit boekjaar voorziet het concern een organische groei in een bandbreedte van 1 tot 3 procent en een verbetering van de EBITDA-marge met 1 procent of iets meer.

BAVA op komst

Koninklijke Brill kondigde aan om op 24 augustus een buitengewone aandeelhoudersvergadering te agenderen. De benoeming van Steven Perrick als lid van de raad van commissarissen betreft het "belangrijkste agendapunt van stemming" .

Op 17 augustus zal Brill de definitieve halfjaarcijfers presenteren.

Het aandeel Koninklijke Brill sloot dinsdag op een groen Damrak 3,2 procent hoger op 24,25 euro.

Kempen verkleint belang in Brill

Belang lager dan 10 procent.

Kempen Capital Management heeft een kleiner belang in Koninklijke Brill gemeld. Dit bleek uit een melding in het kader van de Wet op het financieel toezicht, gedateerd op 13 juli 2016.

Kempen meldde een kapitaalbelang van 9,07 procent met een stemrecht van eveneens 9,07 procent.

Op 1 juni 2014 meldde Kempen nog een kapitaalbelang van 11,68 procent met een dito stemrecht.

Wet op het financieel toezicht

De melding valt onder de Wet melding zeggenschap, die sinds 1 januari 2007 onder de overkoepelende Wet op het financieel toezicht valt. Volgens deze wet moeten aandeelhouders met een belang groter dan 3 procent elke wijziging in hun belang melden bij het overschrijden van de volgende drempelwaarden: 3, 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 40, 50, 60, 75 en 95 procent. Dit geldt zowel bij het opbouwen als het afbouwen van een belang.
