GCA Altium has acted as sole financial advisor of RELX Group on the sale of its share of Giuffrè Editore and Tipografia Mori to a private investor. RELX Group, listed in London and Amsterdam, is a world-leading provider of information solutions for professionals across various industries. RELX Group held a 40% stake in both Giuffrè Editore and Tipografia Mori. This transaction represents the third successfully closed deal for GCA Altium with RELX Group in the last 3 years.
Giuffrè Editore is an Italian publishing company leading in the legal and tax publishing segments aimed at professionals and academics. Tipografia Mori is a printing company almost entirely committed to Giuffrè Editore. Specifically, Giuffrè Editore offers specialised textbooks and legal codes aimed at both professionals and academics, periodical magazines covering diversified legal and fiscal topics, “On Disc” products (CDs and DVDs) related to legal subjects, online products such as databases and web portals on legal information solutions, online and physical training and e-learning services for legal and accounting professionals, and process and firm management software.
