CQ’s Acquisition By Economist Group/RollCall: Above $100 Million


Last week The Economist Group announced its acquisition of the Congressional Quarterly, to be rolled into its RollCall publication. At that time, no price was announced. but I have learned through a source close to the competitive bidding process that the price was at least above $100 million. At that price most of the other bidders dropped off, and CQ closed the deal with RollCall. So it is likely around the $125 million range.
