Platts to acquire Kingsman, adds to biofuels analytics stable

October 11, 2012 |

In Switzerland, The McGraw-Hill Companies announced that Platts, a McGraw-Hill division and leading global provider of energy, petrochemicals and metals information, has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Kingsman SA, a privately-held, Switzerland-based provider of price information and analytics for the global sugar and biofuels markets. Neal noted that agriculture is a large, complex global commodity market similar to other markets that Platts serves. “It requires the level of pricing expertise that Platts can uniquely offer,” he said, “and, with its broad range of sub-sectors, it presents multiple opportunities for Platts to develop benchmarks that support market evolution and enhance price transparency.” Founded in 1990 and based in Lausanne, Kingsman employs analysts, researchers and report writers in key markets including London, Montreal, New Delhi and Sao Paulo. It serves a global clientele of producers, traders, refiners, financial institutions and end-users, offering a variety of subscription publications covering sugar, ethanol and biodiesel.
