CAMP is a leading global provider of software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) solutions for managing and tracking the maintenance of jets, turbo prop aircraft and helicopters used in business aviation, as well as enterprise information systems used to manage service centers. CAMP serves more than 19,000 aircraft, 30,000 engines and 1,300 maintenance facilities globally. Headquartered in Merrimack, New Hampshire, CAMP has 12 offices around the world.

The announcement was made by Hearst President and CEO Steven R. Swartz, Hearst Business Media President Richard P. Malloch, and CAMP Systems International Inc. CEO Ken Gray. Terms were not disclosed. The transaction is expected to close by the end of 2016, subject to regulatory approvals.

CAMP’s tracking software serves an essential market need as nearly all business aircraft owners require maintenance tracking software to comply with global regulations and guidelines, ensure aircraft safety and improve operating efficiency.

Strategically, Hearst continues to diversify into data and information-based companies, while growing its world-class media assets.

Commenting on the announcement, Swartz said: “Under CEO Ken Gray and President Vibby Gottemukkala, CAMP has an impressive record of growth and long-term customers that include the world’s leading business aircraft manufacturers. I’m excited about our future together and welcome Ken, Vibby and their colleagues to Hearst.”

“We look forward to partnering with the CAMP team to capitalize on new opportunities to create more growth, expand its global reach and develop new offerings,” Malloch said. “Hearst Business Media is committed to growing our information solutions businesses, developing new capabilities and entering new markets.”

Gray added: “We are delighted to join Hearst’s family of market-leading companies. We know that Hearst’s management team is committed to our success, and our customers and employees will benefit from our partnership.”

“Our partnership with Ken and Vibby and the whole CAMP management team has been incredibly rewarding, and we are proud of the strategic growth and transformation that our investment has helped deliver," added GTCR Managing Director Craig Bondy. "Hearst is a terrific home for this world-class business."

UBS served as lead financial advisor to CAMP and GTCR with Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank also serving as financial advisors. Kirkland & Ellis LLP provided legal counsel to CAMP and GTCR. PJT Partners served as financial advisor to Hearst, with Clifford Chance US LLP providing outside legal counsel.
