About Random House

In 2013, Penguin (owned by Pearson) was merged with Random House (owned by Bertelsmann, privately held by the Mohn family and trusts) to create the world’s largest consumer book publisher. The combined group has around a 30 per cent market share in the USA and UK, and is the publisher of many bestselling authors and titles. Bertelsmann’s book publishing imprints as a whole derive revenue mainly from the English, German, and Spanish languages (plus Portuguese in Brazil). Under the Random House brand, there are 200 independent publishing imprints in 15 countries. These include publishing houses such as Doubleday and Alfred A. Knopf (USA); Jonathan Cape and Bodley Head (UK); Plaza & Janés (Spain); Sudamericana (Argentina); and Goldmann (Germany). The operations of Bertelsmann span books, magazines, newspapers, TV and radio.

Acquired by Bertelsmann AG in 1998, Random House’s publishing groups include the Crown Publishing Group, the Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, Random House Children’s Books, and the Random House Publishing Group. Random House operates its eponymous imprint and some 200 others such as Alfred A. Knopf, Ballantine, Bantam, Dell, Pantheon, and Doubleday. Its roster includes many best-selling authors, such as Stieg Larsson, Dan Brown, Elmore Leonard, and John Grisham. The company is headquartered in New York, and is the world’s largest trade book publisher, according to Hoovers.
