IHS Acquiring RL Polk and Carfax

IHS

Auto Remarketing - June 10, 2013

IHS Inc. is buy­ing RL Polk & Co. and its Car­fax sub­sidiary for $1.4 bil­lion. The deal will likely close after cus­tom­ary clos­ing con­di­tions. The com­bi­na­tion of IHS Auto­mo­tive with RL Polk will enhance cus­tomer insights and deci­sion mak­ing process across the full vehi­cle life­cy­cle with ana­lyt­ics from prod­uct plan­ning through man­u­fac­tur­ing, sales, and into after­mar­kets, said IHS pres­i­dent and CEO Scott Key.
