In this issue of JEGI’s Client Briefing Newsletter, JEGI provides highlights from the eighth annual Outsell Signature Event co-produced by JEGI and held September 30 – October 2, 2014, at the Trianon Palace in Versailles, France. Approximately 120 senior executives and thought leaders from across the global information industry came together for three days of networking, learning from and sharing ideas with their peers. This issue includes “on the record” presentations from the event, including Outsell’s 2015 outlook on the $738 billion information industry, The Financial Times Economic Editor’s overview and forecast for the global economy, Wilma Jordan’s fireside chat with Duncan Edwards of Hearst International on key insights about the company, and JEGI’s M&A recap through September of 2014. Also in this issue is an insightful article on M&A driving connections between brands, consumers and digital things, written by JEGI Managing Director David Clark. JEGI illustrates its exceptional transaction experience across its core sectors, including the sales of both onPeak and Travel Planners, housing software and services providers, to Viad; RTM, a producer of TV and digital content, to Raycom; Covenant Review, a proprietary financial research and analytics provider, to Leeds Equity; and several others.
