This notification concerns the following undertakings:

The SSCP Funds and TA Associates acquire within the meaning of Article 3(1)(b) of the Merger Regulation joint control of the whole of Glenigan.

The concentration is accomplished by way of purchase of shares.

The business activities of the undertakings concerned are:

for TA Associates: TA Associates is focused on targeted sectors within technology, healthcare, financial services, consumer, and business services,

for Glenigan: Glenigan supplies market data and intelligence software and services to companies in the construction industry, including in relation to office relocation and refurbishment in relation to project information and contact data, primarily in the UK.
