BMC competes with Elsevier

Excerpt from Yvette Essen's financial report in today's issue of The Telegraph: "Publishing group Reed Elsevier was left on the shelf, shedding 5 to 451p. Traders speculated that the Anglo-Dutch group, which hit a peak of 550p last June, could face increased competition from UK independent publishing house BioMed Central, which is meeting with Lehman Brothers and fund managers today."
