Letter from the president: VCJ has been acquired by UCG

Dear VCJ subscriber:

I have exciting news to share. VCJ magazine has been acquired by UCG, recognized as one of the leading providers of specialized financial and business information.

As a result of the merger, we’ll be able to enhance and expand our coverage of issues vital to your success. Here is just one example: UCG publishes IA Watch, the most authoritative source of SEC compliance tools for registered investment advisers. Now, we’ll be able to leverage their expertise to deliver news and analysis of SEC plans for the private equity markets.

You will benefit from other changes coming in the months ahead.

I’ve personally known the top executives at UCG for years and I know they’re fully committed to investing time, resources and energy to bring you the news, analysis, data, and conferences needed to succeed in the highly competitive marketplace. Founded in 1977, UCG has a great track record of acquiring information services and helping them grow.

In addition to VCJ, the properties included in the sale are Buyouts, PEHUB.com, peHUB Wire and the PartnerConnect conferences. The collective business will operate under the name Buyouts Insider to reflect the exclusive information we provide.We’ll continue to keep a presence in New York and Silicon Valley, while our conferences host audiences across the country. (Here is the UCG announcement of the deal.)

On behalf of the entire staff, we look forward to improving our service to you and satisfying all your information needs.

Jim Beecher
