Late today, Judge Christopher Sontchi approved Perseus‘s offer to take over the distribution contracts of all PGW publishing clients that have signed distribution agreements with the company, reports PW Daily. It ends a highly competitive contest between Perseus and the National Book Network for the fate and fortunes PGW clients. “We are excited to move forward as quickly as possible to write checks to PGW clients and to provide some certainty for PGW employees,” said Perseus CEO David Steinberger in a statement. More than 100 publishers, who collectively constitute about 85% of the total amount of monies owed to PGW clients in the AMS bankruptcy, have signed agreements with Perseus. NBN president Jed Lyons said he was “very disappointed” to not have the opportunity to work with the PGW publishers, but congratulated Perseus on its victory.
