Brill sees continuation of 2020 trends in Q1

During the first quarter of 2021 developments of 2020 continued: To date our print book sales are under pressure and our eBusiness is thriving. At the start of the year we saw a relatively sharp decline in our print book sales due to Brexit uncertainties and customer preference for eBooks. Many customers, particularly in the US, continue to favor eBooks over print as access to physical library collections remains challenging.

Today after stock market close (5.45 PM) Brill published a trading update on the results for Q1 2021.
