Profits Fall But Sales Up for HarperCollins Q4

As part of parent company NewsCorp‘s overall reporting on its financials, HarperCollins reported fourth quarter operating income of $21 million, an improvement of $27 million versus the fourth quarter of fiscal 2006. Current quarter results were led by sales of THE DANGEROUS BOOK FOR BOYS by Con & Hal Iggulden and THE REAGAN DIARIES by Ronald Reagan. During the fourth quarter, HarperCollins had 53 books on The New York Times bestseller list, including 8 titles that reached the number one spot, and for the full year HarperCollins had 128 books on The New York Times bestseller list, including 16 titles that reached the number one position.

Ron can’t help but wonder, though, how much better those Q4 numbers would’ve been if HarperCollins hadn’t chickened out on If I Did It at the last minute.
