BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Virtua Research, a leading financial services technology company focused on web-enabled information delivery, today announced the acquisition of StockConferenceCalendar, the largest database of investment conferences and presenters worldwide, effective immediately. This acquisition broadens Virtua’s innovative portfolio of powerful investor and investor relations intelligence tools and applications. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
“StockConferenceCalendar has proven itself to be the leader in robust and real-time updated conference and presenter data that its subscribers – including corporate issuers, buy-side professionals and corporate access professionals at some of the largest investment banks – have come to rely on,” said Andy Detwiler, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Virtua Research. “We believe its market-leading competitive position will prove to be a valuable addition to Virtua’s product portfolio by enhancing the market intelligence we provide our customers.”
“Virtua Research was a natural fit when it came time to select a strategic partner to take StockConferenceCalendar to the next level,” said Deborah Demer, president of StockConferenceCalendar. “Under Virtua’s ownership with its larger scale, StockConferenceCalendar will enjoy increased marketing leverage and a broader reach to showcase what our current subscribers already know – that StockConferenceCalendar is the number one resource for investment banking conference and presenter information worldwide.”
This announcement follows a reseller partnership between the two companies previously announced on June 9, 2014. Virtua plans to continue to operate the stockconferencecalendar.com website and fully support existing subscribers, while continuing to build out its Investor Relations (IR) Management platform with embedded data and tools from leading providers such as StockConferenceCalendar.
