McGraw-Hill Ryerson entity purchased by Nelson Education to build textbook giants
Nelson Education Ltd. which is called "Canada's premier education publisher", has made a deals to take over the kindergarten-to-grade 12 companies of one of its major competitors, McGraw-Hill Ryerson. This operation will combine the lion's share of the textbook publishers in the ownership of a Toronto-based group. According to a press communiqué, Nelson will take over the entire design, manufacturing, sales, distributing and promoting of McGraw-Hill's primary and high schools bookpublishers.
These include McGraw-Hill's works in mathematics, natural and natural history, English, visual art, literature, music, humanities and engineering. The conditions of the agreement were not known. Mr Brown said the acquisition would not push up the prices that education authorities across Canada are paying for schoolbooks. It gave the example of a textbook that Nelson released a months ago, known as Mechanistic Chemistry, by William Ogilvie, an associate lecturer in the University of Ottawa.
"We' re trying to make them cheaper," Brown said. In addition, he added that there are also many actors in the textbook industry with the fusion, at least at the academic as well. "Ogilvie said, "There are six or seven publishers of the kind of book we're dealing with. The Nelson said that the adoption is conditional upon compliance with the Investment Canada Act.

Nelson's long-term perspective is to move from a physicist book publishers to a publishers of education assets in an ever more digitized age. This is a fruitful exercise, because even if children need fewer manuals, they need the same amount of study materials, he said. Mr. Brown said he was spending a great amount of in New York to negotiate the bargain with McGraw Hill.
