Euromoney said the combined products had a consistent track record of growth in revenue and earnings over recent years which it expects to continue. In the year to 30 September 2018, The Deal’s unaudited revenue was US$25.2mln.

Approval by TheStreet’s shareholders is expected to take place during the first quarter of 2019, Euromoney said.

“The businesses are perfectly placed to grow further under Euromoney ownership, with the group's existing data expected to enhance the BoardEx platform. We look forward to working with the management team and our new colleagues around the world to develop these leading brands and take advantage of the compelling growth opportunities they offer.”
