OK, I surrender! I might actually be guilty of spreading a false rumor.
I was just trying to give folks a lead based on a similar discussion I
had seen this week on MEDLIB.
I didn't see it in the article. It was mentioned on MEDLIB and might not
have any basis in fact. Here is the contact info for the person who
originally posted the inquiry on MEDLIB (and who might have received
more information on the supposed percentage.)

Sorry if I confused people!

         Where in this article do you see a projection of 15%?  I don't see

         In terms of the "who's going to buy Faxon" situation, I do think
         article is now somewhat dated.  It mentions the "planned sessions"
         discuss the situation at the MidWinter meeting in late January, and
has no
         up to date information on EBSCO's plans to buy Faxon (and the fact
         SwetsBlackwell pulled out of those negotiations weeks ago).  If
         looking for more up to date information, see  This has nothing
to do
         with price projections, but does have the most recent information
         seen on EBSCO buying Faxon.  I haven't seen anything yet on price
         for 2004.
