I have to admit I thought Informator had bought it and was considering getting a copy to see if I liked it.

SJL and SMT purchased BCM in September 19th 2005 and that purchase included three companies
BRITISH CHESS MAGAZINE LIMITED (00334968)
FINESSE BRIDGE BOOKS LIMITED (03913531)
CHESS MAGAZINE HOLDINGS LIMITED (03764357)
The latter being the holding company for the upper two.
FINESSE BRIDGE BOOKS LIMITED (03913531) relates to the purchase of a magazine called Bridge Plus
which cost many thousands of pounds and never got off the ground. The debt from this purchase was and is a millstone around the financial neck of BCM
Fairly soon after James and I departed BCM
(Christmas 2015) there was a hook-up with Informant
via Josip Asik who then took over the management of the content and appointed Milan Dinic as Editor. During this period Jimmy Adams may have been involved but the masthead of the magazine probably did not reflect this.
benefited from the production resources of Informant
whilst retaining some of our content providers (some of whom worked gratis).
I believe JA started the production of ACM
at the tail end of 2016 and SJL has some involvement but am not sure of its extent.
