We advised Clarivate in connection with the FTC review, which didn’t result in antitrust remedies

Davis Polk advised Clarivate on its $5.3 billion acquisition of ProQuest from Cambridge Information Group, a family owned investment firm, and other partners including Atairos. The Federal Trade Commission requested documents and other information as part of its review of the transaction under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Act. The deal ultimately closed on December 1, 2021, with no antitrust remedies imposed by the FTC.

Clarivate is a global leader in providing trusted information and insights to accelerate the pace of innovation. ProQuest was a leading global software, data and analytics provider to academic, research and national institutions.

The Davis Polk Antitrust & Competition team included partner Jesse Solomon and counsel Nathan Kiratzis.
