We are the world’s third-largest book publisher for the general public and educational markets, and the leader in France, through Lagardère Publishing.
Alongside some 7,479 employees, it creates more than 15,000 original publications each year as well as contributing to their broader circulation by innovating with digital and mobile reading formats. Lagardère Publishing’s activities also extend to adjacent businesses such as Board Games and Mobile Games.
Operating mainly under the Hachette imprint, Lagardère Publishing is a federation of publishing companies with a large degree of editorial independence. They are united by a shared vision, a concerted effort to expand in innovation and corporate social responsibility, a coordinated strategy and the same high standards of leadership required of the people appointed to positions of responsibility in each company.
In 2022, Lagardère Publishing had a successful year characterized by the resilience of its activities in a less favorable context, experiencing growth particularly in the United Kingdom and Spain. This strongly illustrates the relevance of its unique, international, and diversified business model.
