New York times, March 30, 2021: in an article entitled "HarperCollins to buy Houghton Mifflin's Books and Media" on page B4 (HarperCollins, one of the five largest publishing companies in the United States, agreed to buy Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Books and Media, the trade publishing division of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt; HarperCollins, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp, will be better able to compete as publishing has come to be dominated by the biggest players; HarperCollins is the second largest trade publisher; a global publisher with more than 120 imprints)
Wikipedia, 18 April 2021 (HarperCollins Publishers LLC is one of the world's largest publishing companies and is one of the Big Five English-language publishing companies, alongside Penguin Random House, Simon & Schuster, Hachette, and Macmillan; the company is headquartered in New York City and is a subsidiary of News Corp; the name is a combination of several publishing firm names: Harper & Row, an American publishing company acquired in 1987 -- whose own name was the result of an earlier merger of Harper & Brothers (founded in 1817) and Row, Peterson & Company -- together with UK publishing company William Collins, Sons (founded in 1819), acquired in 1989; Collins was bought by Rupert Murdoch's News Corporation in 1989, and was combined with Harper & Row, which NewsCorp had acquired two years earlier.)
