So, yet more consolidation in the analyst world with the news today about Informa's planned acquisition of Datamonitor. Informa is set to pay £502 million.
You can see the announcement on both sites, Informa and Datamonitor.
The FT is reporting that "Michael Danson, chief executive of Datamonitor, will remain in post for 12 months...The future management structure will be decided over the next six months but Datamonitor will remain a standalone company and its brand will be retained."
The Telegraph has Danson saying that "the deal was principally about revenue synergies, not cost savings...most jobs at Datamonitor, aside from the finance director and a few non-executive directors, were likely to remain safe."
