Outsell Acquires EPS, Expands Globally

Outsell, Inc. (http://www.outsellinc.com), a research and advisory firm for the information industry, announced the acquisition of Electronic Publishing Services Ltd. (EPS; http://www.epsltd.com) of London. EPS is a global provider of information, strategic consulting, and research for the information marketplace. David Worlock, founder and chairman of EPS, will serve as Chief Research Fellow of the new organization. Outsell, which employs analysts across the U.S., will maintain its Burlingame, Calif., headquarters and add EPS offices in London to its current locations. Combined, the team will include nearly 60 industry analysts and professionals.

In addition to increasing Outsell's revenues, the acquisition doubles its client base of publishers and information providers, while expanding its international reach. According to the companies, Outsell has a deep client base in North America, while EPS is strong in the U.K. and Europe. Together, the firms are now serving more than 300 organizations on a global basis.

The acquisition also broadens the breadth and depth of services that Outsell will provide. Each company brings longstanding relationships and expertise in key industry segments. EPS has particular strength in the Legal Information and Education & Training niches and has relationships with worldwide financial providers who invest in information companies. Outsell adds to EPS' expertise in the B2B Trade, Market & IT Research, and Search & Aggregation segments. Both firms are already entrenched in the scientific, technical, and medical (STM) information industry sector.
