Corporate Executive Board (CEB) To Acquire UK-Based SHL For $660 Million

Stocks in this article: EXBD

The Corporate Executive Board Company (“CEB” or the “Company”) (NYSE: EXBD), the leading member-based advisory company, today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire SHL, a global leader in cloud-based talent measurement and management solutions, from funds managed by HgCapital and Veronis Suhler Stevenson ("VSS") for $660 million in cash, subject to customary pre- and post-closing adjustments.

The combination brings together two highly complementary businesses to create the world’s foremost source of insight on the measurement and management of talent for business and government. Marrying CEB’s rich best practices, insights and data with SHL’s assessments, predictive analytics and robust technology platform will create a global organization with a greatly enhanced capability to help clients manage talent, transform operations and reduce risk.

SHL is the largest global provider of cloud-based solutions for talent assessment and decision support, enabling client access to unparalleled data, analytics and insights for assessing and managing employees and applicants. Headquartered in the U.K., SHL has operations in Europe, Asia and the U.S. They serve more than 10,000 clients in 111 countries, including more than 40 percent of the Fortune 500 and over 80 percent of the FTSE 100. Each year, SHL delivers more than 25 million assessments in over 30 languages. SHL was acquired by HgCapital in 2006 in a take-private transaction, and VSS became a co-investor in 2011 following SHL’s merger with the talent assessment firm PreVisor.

The acquisition will significantly expand the addressable market of both companies through an increased global presence across all major developed and emerging markets, enhancing CEB’s ability to scale and extend its existing platform with technology-driven solutions. The combined company will offer compelling career opportunities for a talented base of more than 3,000 employees as part of a larger, stronger global organization committed to advancing the science and practice of talent management.
