Update: RBI Sells Four Titles To Canon; Deal Is Official

The sale of four of Reed Business Information’s magazines to Canon Communications has gone through, Jason Fell at Folio: reports.

Ron Wall, the EVP of Canon’s publishing division, told Folio: that all four titles—Electronic Design News (EDN), Design News, Test & Measurement World and Packaging Digest—will continue in print and digital and that no changes will be made to their frequencies or circulations.

There will be minimal changes to the “market-facing” staffs of the magazines, though some back-end staff will be merged with Canon’s existing staff. You know what that means.
