RBI May Be Selling Five, Not Four, Titles To Canon Communications

Canon Communications is in talks to acquire five, not four, trade publications from Reed Business Information, B-to-B Media Business reports.

The titles are Electronic Design News (EDN), Design News, Test & Measurement World, Packaging Digest, and Control Engineering, which, B-to-B says, would fit with Canon’s trade shows.

Canon was originally expected to announce today that the sale had completed; the company is based on the West coast so the announcement may happen soon.

If the sale does go through, that will leave 36 RBI magazines on the block or in danger of closure.
