Platts, a leading global provider of energy, petrochemical and metals information and a division of The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc. (NYSE: MHP), today completed its acquisition of Kingsman SA, a privately-held, Switzerland-based provider of price information and analytics for the global sugar and biofuels markets. The acquisition, whose purchase price was not disclosed, was announced on October 11.

“The acquisition of Kingsman broadens Platts’ capabilities in biofuels, provides an entry to the agriculture markets, and adds widely respected skills in fundamental market analysis,” said Harold McGraw III, chairman, president and chief executive officer for The McGraw-Hill Companies.

A leading information provider for the sugar markets, Kingsman offers a range of daily, weekly and monthly reports covering ethanol and biodiesel as well as sugar. As a unit of Platts’ new agricultural group, Kingsman will continue to offer its existing product portfolio under the Kingsman brand and under the day-to-day leadership of its founder Jonathan Kingsman.

Founded in 1990 and based in Lausanne, Kingsman employs analysts, researchers and report writers in key markets including Bangkok, 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.

“Kingsman’s prime focus on market analysis, supply and demand fundamentals and trade flows complements Platts’ long-standing expertise in reporting news, assessing prices and explaining the factors driving those prices,” said Larry Neal, president of Platts.
