Mergers, Acquisitions Mark Ed-Tech Outlook
Forty-eight mergers and acquisitions of education-focused technology companies took place in 2012, a slight dip from the previous year but still evidence of those businesses' conviction that they can strengthen their position in the market through strategic growth, a recent report says.
The number of mergers and acquisitions worldwide fell from 51 the previous year, according to CB Insights, a New York City-based company that tracks and analyzes market research and data.
Those figures represent companies serving K-12 systems, colleges, and professional training programs.
