Clarification on Regal Acquisition by Baker

Following our report here two days ago about Gospel Light selling Regal Books to Baker Book Group, the Publisher’s Weekly story indicates that Gospel Light is retaining the Regal name; the titles will be assigned to Baker, Bethany and Chosen without creating a new division.

…Under the terms of the deal, Baker will acquire Regal’s backlist, frontlist, and forthcoming books, some 625 print titles, Dwight Baker told PW. “The Regal brand will remain with Gospel Light, so we will not add to our divisions. Regal works will be folded into our four trade divisions–Bethany, Revell, Chosen, and Baker Books.” … “From an editorial perspective, we would have difficulty distinguishing Regal from our current trade divisions anyway, so this agreement does simplify matters,” he said.

This sounds similar to InterVarsity Press’ (IVP) acquisition of Biblica Books, where all the titles were reassigned IVP 978083 ISBNs.
