Thomson Reuters sells peHUB, Buyouts, VCJ to UCG

Confirming the speculation that was first reported on our own website, the PE/VC media assets previously owned by Thomson Reuters have been sold to UCG.

The sale was for the collection of publications and conferences including titles such as and PEHUB Wire, PEHUB Canada, Buyouts and VCJ magazines, Pratt’s Guide, and the PartnerConnect series of events (including PartnerConnect West in Half Moon Bay where keynoter Peter Thiel helps kick us off on Tuesday).

UCG is recognized as one of the leading providers of specialized financial and business information, with 35-plus years of experience acquiring information services and helping them grow. Financial terms of the deal, closed on Friday, were not disclosed. (Here is the UCG announcement of the deal.)

Collectively, our group will be known as Buyouts Insider, but you’ll still recognize the individual brands that serve our customers better than any other in the industry. Our PartnerConnect events will continue to be the top networking conferences for senior industry professionals. PEHUB will maintain its position as the industry standard for breaking news and opinion. And our premium brands, Buyouts and VCJ, will remain best-in-class for their broad coverage, trend analysis and data, as they have been doing since the franchise’s founding in 1961.

Little will change for our customers in the short term. But for sure you’ll benefit from the exciting improvements planned down the road as we embark on a new journey and enhance our service to you.
