Berkery Noyes Releases Education Industry M&A Report For Third Quarter 2012

"With the implementation of the Common Core standardized curriculum, the focus on content is becoming less about differentiation and more about delivery through emerging technology platforms," stated Mary Jo Zandy, Managing Director at Berkery Noyes. "Interactive assessment tools that measure student progress, particularly in the quantitative disciplines, will thus become even more important in K-12 education as schools aim to meet specific testing benchmarks."

Regarding other market segments in the industry, M&A activity pertaining to educational institutions increased 33 percent in the last three months, including a 25 percent improvement within the Professional Training Institutions segment.

"There are a few underlying factors contributing to the numbers in this report," said Peter Yoon, Managing Director at Berkery Noyes. "The rapid adoption of e-Learning technology and the growing training needs of the existing corporate workforce, coupled with a tepid rate of new hiring, has led to a significant increase in corporate spending on outsourced training resources per employee." Yoon continued, "Due to the strong recent growth in the sector, corporate training and professional education companies continue to attract interest from strategic and financial acquirers."

A copy of the EDUCATION INDUSTRY M&A REPORT FOR THIRD QUARTER 2012 is available at the Berkery Noyes website.
