Yippy to Purchase HighBeam Research From Gale Group

Yippy, Inc. announced that the company executed an asset purchase agreement with The Gale Group, Inc., part of Cengage Learning, to purchase all of the assets related to the HighBeam Research and HighBeam Business products, subject to a closing on a future date.

HighBeam Research is a premium information service built for students, instructors, researchers, professionals and others looking to gain deep knowledge on subjects of interest through partnerships with reputable publishers and content providers, many of which are not available elsewhere on the internet. With access to millions of articles through thousands of publications, HighBeam Research helps customers find the information they need all in one place at an affordable price.

HighBeam Business was developed with a focus on making it both faster and easier for business professionals to get relevant, high-quality information through HighBeam’s own proprietary software and vast publication database, providing professionals with the tools to identify key topics and new opportunities. HighBeam’s solutions combine premium content, including detailed industry reports, company profiles, contact information, and millions of articles from thousands of publications.

The company believes that an acquisition of HighBeam will reinforce Yippy’s position as a research-oriented search engine and will further bolster the company’s exclusive resources by providing online access to thousands of credible, professional, published sources. Based in Fort Myers, Fla. Yippy, Inc. is a technology company specializing in the development of search, data normalization, and aggregation through application service environments for consumer and enterprise markets. Yippy’s proprietary web-based product suites are deployed over cloud architecture and provide secure, redundant and maintained “Data as a Service” for businesses and education markets. The company also operates several online web properties and educational reference portals.
