From the Paper:

"A number of issues have been identified which need to be addressed in order to sustain the long-term viability of Lonely Planet as a company. The company has recently been approached by a well known large software company looking to expand its dominance in the media space. While the prospects of acquisition can sometimes be very promising, the ownership of Lonely Planet appears to prefer its independence and creative freedom and as such has, so far, been able to hold of acquisition by larger entities."
