The closing of the acquisition of French-language publishing powerhouse Editis this January 31 is a logical part of the building of a large content, media and communications group.

Vivendi and Editis share a recognized expertise in the development and management of rights to culture works and the same passion for creation and talent support.

Editis encompasses about fifty prestigious publishing houses (Nathan, Robert Laffont, Julliard, Plon, Belfond, Presses de la Cité, Pocket, Solar, …).

With a large portfolio of internationally-acclaimed authors, 4,000 new books published each year and a catalog of more than 45,000 titles, Editis is active in the fields of fiction, children’s books, non-fiction, graphic and illustrated books, educational & reference books.

Editis is also a leader in selling/distribution thanks to its subsidiary Interforum which ensures, in France and abroad, the selling and distribution of books of more than 200 French-language publishers (from Editis group or independents).
