The merger of S&P Global and IHS Markit closed on February 28, 2022. You can read our press release here.
On a call to analysts, S&P Global President and CEO Douglas Peterson said, "We looked at how we could leapfrog and accelerate and actually be transformative with the data and analytics we provide to our customers in all the spaces that we see as the fastest growth areas. We identified IHS Markit as a partner. Across the board, the opportunities are really fantastic."
The Market Intelligence division of S&P Global has merged with the Financial Services business of IHS Markit. The new division remains named S&P Global Market Intelligence but its suite of offerings has expanded to include those of Financial Services.
Yes, S&P Global divested CUSIP Global Services and its Leveraged Commentary and Data (LCD) business, as well as a related family of leveraged loan indices.
The companies also agreed to divest IHS Markit's Oil Price Information Services (OPIS), Coal, Metals and Mining (CMM), PetroChem Wire (PCW), and base chemicals businesses.
