Top Investor Tuesday — Media and Information Services
April 15, 2014
The Blackstone Group and Goldman Sachs have agreed to buy Ipreo for $975 million from Kohlberg Kravis Roberts in one of the larger deals in the media & information services space since 2012. The purchase will raise the sector deal tally for Blackstone and Goldman Sachs; neither firm is the most active of the 186 PE investors that have invested in U.S.-based, B2B media & information services-related companies since the start of 2012, according to the PitchBook Platform. 55 of those investors have cut such deals in the past six months, and multiple firms have repeatedly made investments in the space, as the list below illustrates.
