ProQuest's Acquisition of Innovative Is Approved

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission closed its review of Ex Libris’ acquisition of Innovative, making Innovative part of the ProQuest stable of companies. According to ProQuest, “Operationally, Innovative will run independently as a ProQuest entity and peer company to Ex Libris.” Innovative’s general manager, Yariv Kursh, will stay in place, and Innovative products will continue to be developed, sold, and supported. Customer interaction with the company will not change.

“Over the past year, we have worked in close and transparent collaboration with Innovative customers, both public and academic, and communicated and delivered on our roadmaps, across Sierra, Polaris Leap, Vega, and Mobile,” says Matti Shem Tov, ProQuest’s CEO. “We look forward to combining our strengths, accelerating innovation, and developing solutions for libraries to enhance their connections with patrons in these challenging times.
