Argus acquires Fundalytics

Energy and commodity price reporting agency Argus has acquired Fundalytics, a specialist European natural gas fundamentals data service. The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Founded in 2009, Fundalytics compiles, cleans and publishes fundamental data for European natural gas markets. Data sets include supply and demand, inventories, interconnector flows, nominations, allocations and many other types of key information useful for planning and analysis. Data are available on an intra-day basis and can be delivered in multiple formats.

Argus Media chairman and chief executive Adrian Binks said: “Fundalytics data are a complementary service to the pricing and analysis services provided by Argus for international natural gas markets. This acquisition means that Argus can provide a fuller service to our clients. Argus prices are already used extensively as benchmarks in physical and derivative contracts for natural gas and other forms of energy. High quality fundamentals data will add a further valuable information source.”

Fundalytics director Chris Dodds said: “I am very pleased to be working with Argus. Argus has the price reporting expertise and analysis skills that will help to develop our data services further. The two companies together will be be able to offer a first-rate full service to our complementary client and prospect databases.”
