RBmedia Announces Two Acquisitions

RBmedia acquired Upfront Books’ audiobook publishing business, along with its full catalog of titles. “This acquisition supports RBmedia’s continued business growth and expansion initiatives,” says Tom MacIsaac, CEO of RBmedia. “We’re privileged to continue to build upon the Upfront legacy and leverage RBmedia’s powerful global distribution network to get these titles to as many listeners as possible.”

To enter into the French-language audiobook market, in addition to its presence in the English-, Spanish-, and German-language markets, RBmedia acquired Éditions Thélème, a French audiobook publisher. According to the press release, RBmedia “will be home to the existing Éditions Thélème audiobooks catalog and all new French-language titles published by RBmedia in the future. Founded in 1990, Éditions Thélème has specialized in publishing French-language audiobooks in the areas of classic and contemporary literature from past and present authors such as Marcel Proust, Victor Hugo, Plato, Jane Austen, and Emily Bronté.”
