Nasdaq signed a definitive agreement to acquire Boardvantage for $200 million

Nasdaq, Inc. announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Boardvantage, a leading board portal solution provider which also specializes in leadership collaboration and meeting productivity.


 The acquisition, along with the recently-closed purchase of Marketwired, is expected to strengthen Nasdaq's position as the leading global corporate services provider. The integration between Nasdaq's Directors Desk and Boardvantage's collaboration platform will support board communication, efficient workflow and decision making for clients with highly secure, best-in-class technology, service and productivity tools.
With over 10,000 clients worldwide, including 93% of the S&P 500 and the Dow 30, as well as 100% of the Nasdaq 100, Nasdaq Corporate Solutions empowers Investor Relations, Public Relations, Communications and Board Management professionals with best-in-class insight, information and tools from a single global provider to increase their efficiency and drive business success. Nasdaq will acquire Boardvantage for $200 million, and intends to fund the purchase price through a mix of debt and cash on hand. Nasdaq does not expect the acquisition to have a material impact on Nasdaq's financial leverage or capital return strategy. Subject to customary conditions, the deal is expected to close in the first half of 2016. Jones Day is acting as Antitrust counsel to Nasdaq, Inc. in its $200 million acquisition of Boardvantage with a team led by Washington partner David Wales. Involved fees earner: David Wales - Jones Day;
