Disposal of Admissions education business


DMGT announces the sale of Hobsons' Admissions software business to Campus Management Corp., increasing DMGT's portfolio focus, consistent with the Group's strategic priorities.


The transaction streamlines Hobsons, DMGT's education technology business, allowing it to focus on its core student success technology businesses, the K-12 career and college planning platform, Naviance, the student matching product, Intersect, and the higher education student retention business, Starfish.  These are business lines that Hobsons has the greatest opportunity to grow.


The Admissions business, which supplies CRM and application management software to higher education institutions and accounted for approximately a quarter of Hobsons' revenues in the year to date, is expected to further enhance Campus Management's product suite, improving its position in an increasingly competitive market.
