CRU Group acquires Ryan’s Notes

CRU Group, the global metals, mining and fertilizer analysis, consultancy and conference business, has acquired Ryan’s Notes. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Ryan’s Notes comprises the Ryan’s Notes news and price assessments newsletter, which is also available online, and three conferences: the Ryan’s Notes Ferroalloys Conference, the Ryan’s Notes Metallics Meeting and the recently launched Ryan’s Notes European Ferroalloys Conference.

Ryan’s Notes was established in 1995 and is headquartered in Pelham, NY. Both of Ryan’s Notes’ founders, Patrick Ryan and Alice Agoos, will continue working on the newsletter and the conferences as part of the expanded CRU Group.

Patrick Ryan said: “After more than 17 years creating, growing and developing Ryan’s Notes, I am delighted that we have found a new home with CRU. Both Alice and I are also pleased that we will continue to work on the newsletter and conferences with CRU into the future.”

CRU Chairman Robert Perlman said: “This acquisition enables CRU to take a pre-eminent position in ferroalloys and metallics worldwide, both in price assessments and in conferences. There is an excellent fit between our two businesses which will allow us to offer even more value to our customers around the world.”

CRU Chief Executive Nick Morgan said: “We have always admired the Ryan’s Notes business and were not surprised when it researched very well in our pre-acquisition work. I am pleased to welcome Patrick, Alice and their team to CRU.”
