From Publishers Weekly:
Operating income at Simon & Schuster rose 32% in 2013, to $106 million on a sales increase of 2.4%, to $809 million, parent company CBS reported. The publisher closed 2013 with a solid fourth quarter with sales up 4.6% over the fourth quarter of 2012 and income up 30%. Sales in the quarter were $225 million and operating income $35 million. Fourth quarter sales were driven by an increase in sales of print books, something CEO Carolyn Reidy attributed in part to the mix of titles, especially the strong physical sales of the three Duck Dynasty books–Happy, Happy, Happy, Si-Cology 1, Commander Family–plus Rush Limbaugh’s Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims.
Reidy was quick to add that digital sales rose in the quarter as well. For the full year of 2013 digital sales increased about 22% and accounted for approximately 27% of revenue for the year compared to 23% in 2012. Reidy said the S&S is still seeing strong e-book sales gains in frontlist commercial fiction.
