iEnergizer buys Aptara, expanding Technopark operations

Digital publishing company Aptara announced its acquisition by iEnergizer Limited on Feb. 13.

Private equity firm American Capital Ltd., who invested in Aptara in 2005, sold the company to iEnergizer for $144 million on Feb. 7.  The London-based iEnergizer is part of a diversified group with wide-ranging investments in business process outsourcing, oil and gas, and real estate.

“iEnergizer recognizes that the market for digital content production is immense and still largely untapped,” Aptara CEO and president Dev Ganesan said in a press release. “Their strategic investment gives Aptara a wider and longer runway for expanding the scope and scale of our operations at a time when publishers are pursuing vendor consolidation.”
