Burton-Taylor, the recognized exchange and market data/analysis industry leader, delivers an analysis of the potential merger of S&P Global with IHS Markit and its impact on the Index Industry.

S&P Global and IHS Markit announced that they have entered into a definitive merger agreement to combine in an all stock transaction which values IHS Markit at an enterprise value of $44 billion, including $4.8 billion of net debt. The deal would certainly spark changes in the competitive dynamics of the Index Provider space, where S&P Dow Jones Indices currently holds as the second largest provider, in terms of revenue.

Burton-Taylor has pulled together the details of the deal and drawn on its extensive knowledge and data to answer the key questions that will ultimately determine how the potential acquisition will shape the index industry.

The analysis includes a profile of S&P Dow Jones Indices and IHS Markit (pro forma before and after the acquisition), a listing of the important deal logistics, a listing and categorization of meaningful M&A activity impacting the index industry since 2012, and the Burton-Taylor view of the impacts on the industry and the effects on business segments.
