JEGI Represents Commonwealth Business Media in Sale to UBM

Commonwealth Business Media, the premier provider of business intelligence for the international trade and transportation industry, has been sold to United Business Media, a leading global business information company, for a cash consideration of $152 million. The acquisition provides UBM with a strong position in a new vertical market, as Commonwealth has an established portfolio of highly regarded integrated media products and proprietary business information databases.
