An e-learning specialist, Learning Tech has just completed the acquisition of management software group NetDimensions for £54mln.
Rosh Wijayarathna, a director at Silicon Valley Bank, who led the deal, said: "The NetD acquisition further diversifies LTG's footprint both geographically and vertically in the regulatory space, and LTG's management excel in their ability to integrate acquisitions at speed. The metrics continue to be very impressive.”

We have been very impressed with the team and are especially pleased to incorporate a partner who can support our growth aspirations globally."
