Here's an unpublished retirement document. The ownership and staff of DRSC Publishers changed after the first quarter of 2015.
Dear readers, authors, employees and friends,
It is with great regrets that I announce the cessation of activity of DRSC Publishers.
This decision was taken both by me and the administrative body of DRSC Publishers. The decision came after the poor results for the first quarter of 2015, taking in account the fact that we suffered a heavy restructuration after gaining independence from our old mother company.
In other words, we didn’t make as much as expected, and decided to focus more on services than on publishing.
Other factors involved in this decision are a decrease in sales, largely due to less publications, as well as many problems with the contracts of the freelancers working for us, such as the new website (delayed by, already, 4 months), the publishing of a few books, such as Swedish Love Story (delayed by 6 months), De l’autre côté... (delayed by 2 months) or Roter schnee im Tivoli (delayed by 4 months).
To solve this issue, we have contact a few publishing houses, in order to see if they are interested in buying the rights we hold many diverse books. Until now, we have received the reply of a French publisher as well as another Danish publisher. We also contacted a Holding, set up in the UK, who has more resources than we do and may be able to publish the books in question.
A decision has yet to be taken. Shareholders have already been notified and an extraordinary meeting has been called, where shareholders and the administrative body will be present.
We will reveal our decision by the middle of 2015, at the end of our second quarter.
DRSC Publishers’ Director.
