Jane’s Sells to IHS

Filed under: Business of HLS — by Jonah Czerwinski on July 9, 2007

Jane’s Information Group was acquired by IHS, Inc., which delivers analysis about the energy and engineering sectors.  They paid approximately $183 million in a stock deal to Jane’s owner Woodbridge Co.  

Jane’s, a solid source of intel and analysis on a range of defense and security since topics 1898, commanded about 4.4 million shares of common stock from IHS, whose shares fell 29 cents to $41.42 last week. 

Jane’s Homeland Security & Resilience Monitor launched a few years ago in a partnership with London’s Royal United Services Institute.  RUSI’s Sandra Bell is among the leading thinkers on HLS issues and is someone I credit with elevating the concept of resilience as a viable defense against assymetric theats in a civilan context.  The Brits are sort of keen on that.
