JupiterResearch sold for $10M
As many of you have likely already noticed, Alan Meckler sold my previous employer JupiterResearch for the tidy sum of $10 million to Kagan Research, not a bad return on a $250,000 investment! My former boss, David Schatsky, was made president of the new company and the folks I have talked to sound pretty upbeat about the whole thing. Given that the ClickZ and SES folks I talked to at SES NYC were all pretty impressed with their new ownership, hopefully this is a great deal for the research team and they all get to spend quiet summer days at the new corporate headquarters in Monterey, California.
Congrats to all involved!
