Comments:

The existing "Vanilla Bunko" will also be added under this new publisher (well, new publisher name). As for "Harlequin Lovesick", for now all publications under this label were published before July 1st, 2015, and so the label will not be added under the new publisher name (until new publication comes out under the new publisher name).

Comments:

TO Books publishes some light novels under no label, and some under the "TO Bunko" label, but not all works published by it, be it under no label or the "TO Bunko" label, would be considered to be a light novel.

Previously it was mentioned by TORANOANA that the light novel label "Kadokawa Books" (カドカワBOOKS) is aimed at a male readership, now also BOOK☆WALKER mentions the label as aimed at males too:
http://bookwalker.jp/search/?word=%E3%82%AB%E3%83%89%E3%82%AB%E3%83%AFBOOKS&order=score&qlab=2226

BOOK☆WALKER is a subsidiary company of KADOKAWA group.

AlphaPolis's male oriented light novels are aimed at males from 25 to 40 years old:

AlphaPolis publishes male oriented light novels under no certain label (for example: Gate, Re:Monster, ... and many more...), and under the new light novel label "Alpha Light Bunko".

All new light novel labels mentioned in the last two pages of this thread, will be added sometime today across websites.
