Forrester Research Acquires JupiterResearch, LLC

Forrester Research (www.forrester.com) has acquired JupiterResearch, LLC (www.jupiterresearch.com) and its parent company, JUPR Holdings, Inc., from MCG Capital Corp. (www.mcgcapital.com) for $23 million in cash plus assumed liabilities, subject to post-closing adjustments. JupiterResearch has 82 employees and 2007 revenues of approximately $14 million. Forrester, with 2007 revenues of $212 million, now has more than 1,000 employees. This strategic purchase complements Forrester’s syndicated business model, as JupiterResearch joins Forrester’s Marketing & Strategy Client Group, which contributed $46.4 million to Forrester’s total revenue in 2007.

The Jordan, Edmiston Group, Inc. (JEGI; www.jegi.com), a provider of independent investment banking services for media, information, marketing services, and related technologies, represented Forrester Research in this transaction and acted as its exclusive financial advisor.

Forrester serves marketing and strategy, IT, and technology industry leaders across 19 professional roles. The addition of JupiterResearch will fortify Forrester’s existing data-driven insight, forward-looking research and analysis, objective advice, and best practices for marketing and strategy professionals globally. These professionals include CMOs, consumer market researchers, consumer product strategists, customer experience experts, direct marketers, interactive marketers, and ebusiness and channel specialists at major companies.

Like Forrester, JupiterResearch provides business professionals with syndicated research, analysis, and advice backed by proprietary data. JupiterResearch has a substantive and growing library of syndicated research, strong consumer data, and market forecasts.
