The British magazine Compound Semiconductor has been sold by IOP Publishing. The magazine, along with the associated website has been bought for an undisclosed fee by Angel Business Communications.

It is understood by Publitek Media News that there will be no interruption in the print schedule of the magazine, with all remaining 2009 issues and associated advertising schedules going ahead as planned.

And, whilst there has been a “brief hiatus”, as Stephen Whitehurst, Angel’s commercial director so eloquently put it, the daily online news service on will be up and running again before the end of Q3.
