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.)

I don't see it anywhere... In terms of the "who's going to buy Faxon" situation, I do think this article is now somewhat dated. It mentions the "planned sessions" to 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 that SwetsBlackwell pulled out of those negotiations weeks ago). If you're looking for more up to date information, see http://www-us.ebsco.com/home/whatsnew/press.asp. This has nothing to do with price projections, but does have the most recent information I've seen on EBSCO buying Faxon. I haven't seen anything yet on price projections for 2004.
