MarketResearch.com, Inc. acquires MindBranch, Inc.
Established in 1992, MindBranch is a provider of targeted market research covering over 130 sectors. The company has a catalog of over 50,000 market research reports, company profiles, newsletters, and subscription services produced by more than 400 top publishers and consultancies, including Frost & Sullivan, IDC, Dun & Bradstreet, the Yankee Group, Wintergreen Research and the Economist Group. The acquisition includes MindBranch's US operations and a majority ownership of MindBranch Asia-Pacific (Seoul, South Korea).
"This is a huge strategic step for us," said Rob Granader, CEO of MarketResearch.com. "We're getting talented people and a quality service." Granader said the deal "will help us to dramatically expand and improve our offering for both of our key customer groups: our publishers and our research purchasers.
Our publishers benefit from a greatly expanded sales and distribution network in North America, Europe, and Asia. Our research buyers will quickly benefit from a significantly expanded portfolio of research publishers and a larger worldwide presence."
The combined company represents a 40% increase in research content for MarketResearch.com. That company was founded in June 1998 by Granader and is a provider of global business intelligence on markets, industries, and companies. In addition to hosting reports from over 370 publishers, MarketResearch.com also has three publishing divisions: Packaged Facts, Kalorama Information, and Specialists in Business Information.
