Company history

In 2016, Thomson Reuters struck a $3.55 billion deal in which they spun it off into an independent company, and sold it to private-equity firms Onex Corporation and Baring Private Equity Asia.[8][9]

On May 13, 2019, Clarivate merged with Churchill Capital. Churchill's CEO, Jerre Stead (previous chairman and CEO of IHS Markit)[10] became Clarivate's executive chairman.[1]

In 2020, Clarivate sold its Techstreet division to a for-profit subsidiary of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.[11]
