Update of footnote 8 on page 8

In footnote 8 on page 8 of the story we noted that Springer was sold in December 2009 to two private equity firms, EQT Partners, a Swedish company, and the Government of Singapore Investment Corporation, for e 2.3 billion euros. On June 19, 2013, both Reuters and Bloomsburg reported that BC Partners, a London-based private equity firm, has agreed to buy the majority stake of Springer Science+Business Media GmbH for 3.3 billion euros, from EQT and Government of Singapore Investment Corporation. Reuters further reported that the two sellers will keep a stake about 10 percent in Springer between them; this was partly confirmed by EQT.

Note: Springer acquired Pharma Marketing and Publishing Services from Wolters Kluwer in 2011.
