Cengage Learning Acquires National Geographic School Publishing

Cengage Learning has acquired National Geographic's digital and print school publishing unit in an expansion of a partnership launched in 2007.

Under the new agreement Cengage will attain the National Geographic Science series, National Geographic Explorer, an elementary science curriculum, the Hampton Brown literacy and language programs, and extended rights to use the National Geographic brand.

According to information released by Cengage, the transaction will close "after the satisfaction of regulatory approvals and other customary closing conditions."

"Cengage Learning is very proud to partner with the National Geographic Society, one of the most recognized and respected organizations in the world," said Cengage Learning President and Chief Executive Officer Ron Dunn.  "This expanded partnership teams Cengage Learning with the National Geographic global brand and content assets in a powerful way that further strengthens our existing English language learning business and enriches our full range of educational solutions."
