It feels as if ITV have been saying that GL would be up for sale soon for years now, but they’ve finally got round to making it official. That probably means that at least one buyer is already lined up.
This article claims that both Espresso (an educational multimedia company) and Pearson are interested. I’m surprised that Microsoft hasn’t also made an offer, they’ve certainly been emphasising the school IT market recently, and aren’t short of cash.
(Espresso’s stuff looks wonderful)
