@sweetiesweetieants,
Sweet as I first read it, with comma, I thought a new concept in publishing must be called "new and established authors"

@dalehileman,
I love your answer. This sentence was taken from the "about us" page on an actual publisher's website. It wasn't changed after I pointed out the mistake so I started to doubt myself.

Sounds like ad-speak. I would have used a dash.

Publishing Company A, a division of 1234567 Canada Inc., offers new and established authors - a new concept in publishing.

@sweetiesweetieants,
Publishing Company A is a division of 1234567 Canada Inc., and it offers a new concept in publishing to both new and established authors.

Or:

Publishing Company A--a division of 1234567 Canada Inc.-- offers new and established authors a new concept in publishing.
