Competition in the publishing industry is fierce, with John Wiley & Sons Inc. facing challenges from prominent rivals such as Sasbadi Holdings Bhd, Hanoi Education Investment and Development Joint Stock Co, and Promotora de Informaciones SA. Each of these companies has their own unique business model, but they are all vying for the same customers – readers and businesses who need the services they provide. With John Wiley & Sons Inc. at the helm, this competitive landscape will only grow more intense.

Total revenues declined 7.5% to USD 451.0 million, and net income dropped to a loss of USD -92.3 million, a large decline from the previous year’s -17.8 million deficit.
