- Bloomsbury Publishing's first quarter trading has been in line with its expectations.

In the three months ended 31 May total revenues were up by 13% year on year. On a like for like basis, excluding the results of Osprey Publishing, which was acquired in December, total revenues for the quarter were up by 5% year on year, driven mainly by the Children's & Educational division.

The group says this quarter traditionally generates the smallest profit of any quarter in its financial year.
