IHS Seeks Acquisitions

IHS Inc. (NYSE:IHS) is looking for acquisitions. Scott Key, President and Chief Executive Officer of IHS states, "So we are in a position now to make scaled acquisitions and have them be very accretive to growth rate earnings and margins. And we're still then looking for those capabilities. We generate between $500 million and $600 million in free cash flow on an annual basis. We use that cash flow primarily to acquire. Now we have had a couple of buybacks in our history. We've got a $100 million program in place now. So we've had some balance of capital returns to shareholders, but most of our capital going to acquisitions. We track about 2,000 companies at any one point in time. In that 15-year history of acquisitions, 80% of our acquisitions are not done in an auction. It's done strategically, with IHS going and talking to a potential asset with the capability we need, and then closing that transaction. So we have a long pipeline of companies that we talk to every given year. We might have 100 conversations resulting on average in about six acquisitions."
