Mergers and Acquisitions
The number of mergers and acquisitions in the education industry remained about the same during the most recent quarter, with much of the deal-making playing out in early learning and child care, a new analysis shows.
Bright Horizons Family Solutions bought Kidsunlimited; Teachers Private Capital purchased Busy Bees Childcare Ltd.; and Navis Capital Partners’ acquired Guardian Early Learning Group.
The total value of education-related transactions, meanwhile, dropped from the second quarter, though the median value of those deals was the highest it had been in two years.
