Deutsche Börse acquires leading governance, ESG data and analytics provider ISS

No Comments

  • Deutsche Börse to acquire majority stake in Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS) in partnership with current management and Genstar Capital, based on an ISS valuation of USD 2,275 million (EUR 1,925 million) for 100%
  • Move positions Deutsche Börse as a leading global provider of ESG data and analytics
  • High complementarity of ISS’ data and research businesses with Deutsche Börse Group’s businesses along the entire value chain, creates additional growth opportunities on both sides
  • ISS remains autonomous within the Group to ensure independence of its data and research
  • Current CEO Gary Retelny continues to lead ISS

FRANKFURT, Germany, NEW YORK and SAN FRANCISCONov. 17, 2020—Deutsche Börse AG, Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. (ISS) and Genstar Capital LLC announced today that Deutsche Börse will acquire a majority share of approximately 80% in ISS, valuing ISS at USD 2,275 million (EUR 1,925 million) for 100% of the business (cash and debt free). Genstar Capital and current management will continue to hold a stake of approximately 20%. The transaction is expected to close in the first half of 2021 subject to customary closing conditions and regulatory approvals.

This partnership of a global market infrastructure provider with a leading corporate governance, ESG, data and analytics provider forms an excellent foundation to fully realise opportunities for future growth in ESG-based investing globally. With this transaction, Deutsche Börse strongly commits to one of the key megatrends in the industry that will fundamentally change the investment space over the coming years. ISS’ unique ESG and data expertise will allow Deutsche Börse to emerge as a leading global ESG data player.

ISS’ more than 4,000 clients include many of the world’s leading institutional investors who rely on ISS’ objective and impartial governance and ESG data and research, as well as public companies focused on ESG and governance risk mitigation as a shareholder value enhancing measure. This transaction will bring a strengthened capital structure to ISS and the ability to further accelerate organic and inorganic growth initiatives for the benefit of ISS’ clients while leveraging the infrastructure of Deutsche Börse and, in particular, its global index franchise. After the closing, ISS will continue to operate with the same editorial independence in its data and research organisation that is in place today. The current executive leadership team with CEO Gary Retelny will co-invest in the transaction and will also lead the business of ISS after the closing.

The businesses of ISS and Deutsche Börse are highly complementary and offer the potential for revenue synergies along the Group’s entire value chain: the partnership of ISS with the leading index and analytics capabilities of Qontigo, which is also part of the Group, will open opportunities for ESG growth on both sides. Further linkages along the value chain include ISS’ data distribution, which will benefit from the leading position of the Group’s post-trading services provider Clearstream in the investment funds space. In total, revenue synergies are expected to result in EUR 15 million additional EBITDA by 2023. ISS brings unique access to the buyside with more than 2,000 asset managers, including the global top 10. Moreover, ISS’ strong footprint in the US complements well with Deutsche Börse’s leading position in Europe.

This transaction is the logical next step in Deutsche Börse’s pre-trade growth strategy. It complements last year’s creation of Qontigo, formed from the combination of the analytics capabilities of Axioma with Deutsche Börse’s existing STOXX and DAX index businesses. As a leading ESG-focused provider of high-quality data, analytics and insight, ISS has attractive growth rates. In 2020, ISS is expected to generate net revenue of more than USD 280 million (pro-forma IFRS) and an adjusted EBITDA margin of approximately 35% pre-transaction effects, which has further operating leverage potential. Net revenue of ISS is expected to grow organically at a rate of more than 5% on average per annum until 2023. Deutsche Börse will report ISS’ financial performance as a separate pre-trading segment within the Group.

Theodor Weimer, CEO of Deutsche Börse AG, commented on the acquisition of ISS: “ISS is a very successful company with a high reputation worldwide as a global market leader in providing data, analytics and insights to investors and companies as well as governance services. It is one of the leading ESG providers. Its ESG expertise and data capabilities perfectly link to Deutsche Börse’s business model along our entire value chain. Together, ISS and Deutsche Börse have complementary ingredients to become one of the globally leading ESG players of the future. We have been deeply impressed by the culture and the leadership team of ISS. We look forward to partnering with ISS and working together to support the company’s continued business growth and jointly drive forward Deutsche Börse’s strategy.”

Stephan Leithner, Member of the Executive Board of Deutsche Börse AG, responsible for the Pre- and Post-Trading businesses, added: “ISS combines an emphasis on global corporate governance with an increasing focus on a broader definition of ESG standards, where Europe currently plays a trendsetter role. In this sense, we see our future partnership as a perfect combination to drive innovation and deliver the best expertise for ISS’ traditional investor clients and Deutsche Börse’s financial intermediary clients. As a neutral market infrastructure provider, Deutsche Börse is a natural candidate to provide these kinds of services.”

Gary Retelny, ISS President and CEO, said: “Deutsche Börse’s market-leading brands and solutions align very well with ISS’ offerings within our governance, ESG, index and market intelligence businesses. We believe that the potential combination of ISS’ ESG data and STOXX’ indices will offer clients new, powerful and innovative solutions with unique data sets that meet their evolving investment needs. We at ISS look forward to partnering with Deutsche Börse, along with Genstar Capital, as we continue to build upon the success of our diversified businesses around the world. As we have for more than 35 years, we remain committed to ensuring the provision of the highest quality research, data, analytics, and insight to our clients globally.”

Genstar Capital Managing Director, Tony Salewski, said: “Gary and the ISS management team have built a market-leading data and governance platform through innovative product development and impactful acquisitions, and we appreciate the partnership we have had with them over the past three years. As we continue as investors in ISS, we are excited by the value that Deutsche Börse will bring and our shared commitment to further accelerate ISS’ growth.”

CITIC Capital and Caixin Global Led Consortium Announces Full Exit from its Investment in Leading Market Intelligence Provider, ISI Emerging Markets Group

Citic Capital

CITIC Capital and Caixin Global Led Consortium Announces Full Exit from its Investment in Leading Market Intelligence Provider, ISI Emerging Markets Group

(Hong Kong, 16 November 2020) CITIC Capital Holdings Limited (“CITIC Capital”) announced today that a consortium led by its private equity arm and Caixin Global has agreed to a full exit from its investment in ISI Emerging Markets Group (“ISI”) through a sale to Montagu, a leading European private equity firm. Completion of the sale is expected next month, subject to customary closing requirements.
ISI Emerging Markets Group is a leading provider of critical, hard-to-obtain macroeconomic, company and industry digital intelligence for the emerging markets. Subsequent to the carve-out from Euromoney Institutional Investor Plc in 2018 led by CITIC Capital and Caixin Global, the two brands CEIC and EMIS, were successfully integrated under ISI Emerging Markets Group, providing access to 220 million pieces of content from over 6,000 high-quality sources and available in over 15 languages to customers across the globe.

Yichen ZHANG, Chairman & CEO of CITIC Capital said: “We are delighted to have supported ISI’s management team through a period of strong financial performance and organizational development. During our investment, we worked closely with the team to continue to expand ISI’s technology capabilities, product offering and organization, and to deliver robust growth in its subscription numbers, revenue and profitability. With the support from CITIC Capital and Caixin Global, the company also expanded its sales network and enhanced its data coverage, particularly in the rapidly growing China market. ISI has successfully built a resilient business as proven in the global pandemic environment.”
He added: “ISI is another great example of how we unlock value in carve-out deals. Having completed seven carve-outs in recent years, we moved quickly to fully integrate and realize significant synergies between the CEIC and EMIS businesses. We believe the company is well on track to deliver significant future growth.”

HU Shuli, Chairwoman of Caixin Global said: “In the changing world and amid China’s opening of its capital markets, Caixin is devoted to building a financial information and data platform based in China with global impact. Our cooperation with ISI during this time has been effective, particularly as we have brought CEIC deeper into the Chinese market, and brought new opportunities for its development and operation on mobile platforms. We will continue to keep working with ISI and develop the good relationship. Meanwhile, Caixin will continue investing and empowering global data and research institutions. ”

ISI, alongside Focus Media, Omnivision and UCO, is one of the TMT companies invested in by CITIC Capital Partners. These companies have outperformed despite the pandemic. CITIC Capital believes that this space is one of the most active and exciting sectors in China, and will continue to invest in and to focus on opportunities in this area.

Nielsen to hold a conference call to discuss today’s announcements as well as its third quarter 2020 financial results at 8:00 a.m. U.S. Eastern Time (ET) on Monday, November 2nd, 2020

NEW YORK, and BOSTON, November 1, 2020 – Nielsen Holdings plc (“Nielsen”) (NYSE: NLSN) announced today that it has signed a definitive agreement under which affiliates of Advent International (“Advent”), one of the largest and most experienced global private equity investors, in partnership with James “Jim” Peck, former Chief Executive Officer of TransUnion, will acquire the Nielsen Global Connect business for $2.7 billion (subject to working capital, cash, debt-like items and other customary adjustments). Nielsen will also receive warrants in the new company exercisable in certain circumstances. Upon completion of the transaction, Nielsen Global Connect will be a private company with the flexibility to continue investing in the development and deployment of leading-edge measurement products and solutions. The transaction was unanimously approved by Nielsen’s Board of Directors.

“This is a win for both Nielsen Global Connect and for Nielsen (RemainCo), as well as for our shareholders,” said David Kenny, Chief Executive Officer, Nielsen. “The sale of this business to Advent will deliver substantial value sooner than was anticipated through the planned spin-off and creates certainty for all stakeholders. The proceeds from the sale will allow Nielsen to significantly reduce debt, which will provide greater financial flexibility to execute our growth strategy and expand our role in the global media marketplace. At the same time, we are excited about this opportunity for Nielsen Global Connect and believe that moving forward as a private company will better position the business to accelerate its transformation and strengthen its market-leading position. With the support of Advent’s resources and expertise, we believe the new company will create and define the next century of consumer and market measurement. We thank the entire Nielsen Global Connect team for their invaluable partnership and look forward to continuing a strong working relationship with them in the future.”

Kenny added, “All of the terrific work done by so many to pursue a spin-off will position both businesses to thrive as standalone companies and will allow us to execute a smooth transaction. We are grateful for all of this dedicated work.”

“Nielsen Global Connect is the gold standard in retail measurement, with exceptional insights and unrivaled scale and coverage of the global CPG and retail markets,” said Peck. “As customers face a rapidly evolving marketplace, we recognize that they have high expectations for Nielsen Global Connect to help them meet these new demands and to build on its existing core platform and other retail measurement capabilities. We intend to work with David Rawlinson and the talented management team to accelerate the delivery of new capabilities and to continue the transformation underway to build an innovative, high-performing culture acutely focused on delivering value to customers around the world.”

“Advent is thrilled to partner with Jim in driving this next phase of growth for Nielsen Global Connect,” said Chris Egan, Managing Partner at Advent. “Advent has invested in data and information services companies for nearly three decades, and earlier this year we teamed up with Jim to identify a compelling business in the sector where we can apply our combined experience and resources to create value. We see tremendous potential to build on Global Connect’s cutting-edge platform, drawing on our global footprint and operational strength to further scale the business and advance its leadership across established and emerging markets.”

David Rawlinson will remain CEO of Nielsen Global Connect through the close of the transaction and is expected to be part of the leadership team for the go-forward company. Upon close, Peck will be involved in the day-to-day strategic and operational activities of the company, which will be headquartered in Chicago, IL. In early 2021, the Global Connect business will be renamed NielsenIQ.

Nielsen will grant Nielsen Global Connect a license to brand its products and services with the “Nielsen” name and other Nielsen trademarks for 20 years following closing. Additionally, Nielsen and Advent will enter into agreements pursuant to which, among other things, Nielsen and Advent will provide certain transitional services to each other for periods of up to 24 months following closing, grant each other reciprocal licenses for certain data and corresponding services relating to that data for periods of up to five years following closing and grant each other licenses to use certain patents.

Nielsen plans to use net proceeds of the transaction primarily to reduce debt and for general corporate purposes.

The transaction is subject to approval by Nielsen shareholders, regulatory approvals, consultation with the works council and other customary closing conditions; it is expected to close in the second quarter of 2021.

Ratos divests Bisnode to Dun & Bradstreet

Ratos

The transaction forms part of the development of Ratos into a group of companies with a focus on profitable growth.

  • Ratos is selling the data and analytics company Bisnode to Dun & Bradstreet for a purchase price based on an approximate enterprise value of SEK 7,200m, representing an EV/EBITA multiple of 13,8x.
  • The sale of Ratos’s 70% shareholding corresponds to an approximate equity value of SEK 3,900m, representing a Group capital gain of about approximately SEK 2,000m. In addition, Ratos will receive a dividend from Bisnode during the fourth quarter 2020 amounting to SEK 175m.
  • 25% of the equity value comprises of shares in Dun & Bradstreet, listed on the New York Stock Exchange. Ratos’s CEO, Jonas Wiström, will join the Dun & Bradstreet International Strategic Advisory Board.
  • Bisnode has doubled its profitability over the past four years. The transaction enables increased growth through Dun & Bradstreet’s international reach and expanded global customer base.
  • The transaction is an additional step in the development of Ratos and will create the financial conditions for accelerating profitable growth and acquisitions.

Ratos AB (“Ratos”) has signed an agreement to sell its entire 70% holding in Bisnode AB (“Bisnode”), excluding the business operations in Belgium, to Bisnode’s partner Dun & Bradstreet for an approximate enterprise value of SEK 7,200m, corresponding to an EV/EBITA multiple of 13,8x and an approximate equity value of SEK 3,900m. In addition, Ratos will receive a dividend from Bisnode during the fourth quarter 2020 amounting to SEK 175m. 75% of the equity value comprises a cash consideration, and 25% of shares in Dun & Bradstreet Holdings, Inc., corresponding to approximately 1% of shares outstanding. Bonnier is also selling its 30% stake in Bisnode to Dun & Bradstreet. The transaction is subject to customary regulatory approval and is expected to close by early 2021.

“This is a good deal for Ratos, which also means that we release capital and can increase the pace of our business plan with the aim of investing in organic growth and margin growth in the existing portfolio as well as add-on and potential new acquisitions. The sale is an important step in the transformation of Ratos into a company group with a focus on profitable growth”, says Jonas Wiström, President and CEO of Ratos.

Bisnode has undergone a successful development process over the past four years with a focus on an improved customer offering, stability and profitability. During that time, the operating margin has doubled from 7% to 14% for a rolling 12-month period. Future growth aimed at reaching a leading position will require Bisnode’s participation in the ongoing consolidation of an increasingly global data and analytics market, benefitting from Dun & Bradstreet’s global scale, expertise and market leading solutions.

“Ratos’s transformation into a focused company group is based on the premise that we will own companies that are, or can become, market leaders. In Bisnode’s case, we do not have the possibility to invest in the creation of a market-leading position in the market for data and analysis on our own. We would prefer to participate in the consolidation together with a global leading partner that can realise major synergies with Bisnode, which we are enabling via this transaction. It also feels satisfying to have found a good solution considering the interdependence that Bisnode has had to Dun & Bradstreet since 2003 as a reseller”, says Jonas Wiström.

Dun & Bradstreet is a leader in the industry for data and analysis and their modern Finance and Risk Solutions and Sales and Marketing Solutions account for an increasing share of Bisnode’s sales and currently amounts to approximately 33%. The companies have had a close cooperation for two decades and complement each other well geographically. Bisnode holds a strong position in Northern and Central Europe, while Dun & Bradstreet is a market leader in the US and holds a leading position in several international markets including a strong position in the United Kingdom. The merger will make Bisnode a natural platform for Dun & Bradstreet in Northern and Central Europe, while creating opportunities for achieving economies of scale in such areas as sales, product development, data sources and analytics.

Other financial information
After the closing date, Ratos’s ownership in Dun & Bradstreet will be approximately 1%, corresponding to approximately SEK 1,000m based on Dun & Bradstreet’s volume weighted average closing price over the past 20 trading days until 6 October 2020.

The enterprise value of Bisnode’s Belgian operations is SEK 42m, but this has not been included in the transaction since the company differs sharply from Bisnode’s other operations and does not offer synergy opportunities for Dun & Bradstreet. Ratos intends to divest the business separately.

Ratos continued development towards a group of companies with a focus on profitable growth
Over the past two years, Ratos has been focused on stabilising the Group and increasing the profitability of its companies. At 30 June 2020, EBITA on a rolling 12-month basis was SEK 1,573m (SEK 829m). In the first half of 2020, 11 of 12 companies in the company group showed improved earnings.

Ratos’s management believes that there is scope for improving profitability and organic growth within the company group. Several companies have achieved stability and a level of profitability that also enables growth through acquisitions. The sale of Bisnode will create the financial conditions for implementing the add-on and potential new acquisitions that form part of the plan for the continued development of Ratos.

Spectrum to be acquired by TGS in an all share transaction

Altor

TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Company ASA (“TGS”) has agreed on the principle terms for an acquisition of Spectrum ASA (“Spectrum”), creating the world’s leading provider of multiclient seismic data.

The transaction is expected to be completed as a share-for-share merger with the consideration to Spectrum shareholders in the form of 0.28x ordinary shares of TGS for each Spectrum share, in addition to a cash consideration of USD 0.27 multiplied by the exchange ratio subject to the transaction closing after the ex-date for the TGS dividend payable in Q3 2019. The exchange ratio and the cash consideration imply a price per share for Spectrum of NOK 61.9 based on closing of the TGS share on 2 May 2019, corresponding to a market capitalization of NOK 3,671 million (USD 422 million) on a fully diluted basis. Following completion of the transaction, Altor Fund IV will hold approximately 3.7% of the fully-diluted shares outstanding in TGS.

The transaction will create a leading provider of multiclient 2D and 3D seismic data
covering all major mature and frontier basins world-wide. Spectrum has successfully built a substantial presence in the South Atlantic and other important frontier oil & gas regions. With TGS’ extensive library and financial robustness, the combined entity will be well positioned to accelerate 3D seismic investment plans in an improving market. Furthermore, the combined libraries will have a scale that will help accelerating TGS’ data analytics strategy. In addition to providing a platform for further profitable growth, the combination will benefit from significant cost synergies with a preliminary estimate of approximately USD 20 million annually.

“The strategic combination of TGS and Spectrum will form a stronger and better company with a world class data library, people and opportunities. We look forward to joining forces with TGS. There are strong strategic benefits from combining the companies, and we believe we can enhance our growth as part of a larger combined company,” stated Rune Eng, President & Chief Executive Officer of Spectrum.

“Over the past years, Spectrum has been through a growth phase with particular focus on establishing profitable positions in non-mature exploration basins, especially along the Atlantic margin. TGS´ interest in Spectrum is a manifestation of the solid position built by the Spectrum organization over a long time. Being ready for the next phase of the strategic growth plan, TGS is an excellent match, with its asset-light multi-client strategy and strong balance sheet. Altor Fund IV are proud to be part of creating a leading multi- client company, with a strong presence in all the major basins and superior cash generation capabilities”, stated Pål Stampe, Chairman of the board of Spectrum and partner at Altor Equity Partners, the investment advisor to Altor Fund IV.”

“Spectrum has successfully built a strong position in key offshore basins, particularly in the South Atlantic. The transaction thus fits well with one of TGS’s key strategic goals of growing exposure to this region. Moreover, Spectrum’s library, and in particular the vast 2D coverage, further adds to TGS’s strategy within data analytics, where access to large amounts of data is a key success factor. TGS remains committed to maintain the existing dividend policy and emphasizes that the strong cash position, the combination of two free cash flow positive entities, and significant cost synergies, will enable continued industry leading shareholder returns”, stated Kristian Johansen, Chief Executive Officer of TGS.

Definitive merger documents are expected to be entered into during May, with closing of the transaction expected during the third quarter of 2019 following shareholder approvals in EGM and regulatory clearance.
