Hachette Livre, French pronunciation: ​[a.ʃɛt liːvʁ], is a French publisher, the flagship imprint of Lagardère Publishing. It was founded in 1826 by Louis Hachette as a bookshop and publishing company. Hachette has its headquarters in the 15th arrondissement of Paris. It was acquired by the Lagardère Group in 1981.

In 1996 it merged with the Hatier group. In 2004, Hachette acquired dictionary publisher Éditions Larousse. In 2006, it expanded into the United States when it purchased Time Warner's book-publishing division, which was then renamed Hachette Book Group USA. In June 2013, Hachette announced that it would acquire Hyperion Books from The Walt Disney Company.[1]

Corporate affairs

Hachette has its headquarters in the Beaugrenelle district in the 15th arrondissement of Paris.[2][3]

Hachette's head office previously occupied a building at the intersection of Saint-Germain and Saint-Michel in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés area. It later moved to its current location.[4]

Hachette planned to lease 9,900 square metres (107,000 sq ft) of space at a building in Malakoff, Hauts de Seine around 2011, even though the building in the 15th arrondissement was being renovated.[3]
