A Penguin, em contraciclo, apresentou um crescimento de dois dígitos face a 2007: 26%.
Face a estes resultados, eis o comentário de John Makinson, Chairman
e Chief Executive
«We are hugely proud of Penguin's performance in 2008. In a very difficult market for consumer books, which deteriorated progressively during the year, Penguin achieved outstanding growth in sales and profit allowing us to meet our longstanding commitment to a double digit profit margin. This performance was underpinned by exceptional publishing around the world which we expect to continue in 2009.
