Jason Cannon July 3, 2013

IHS Inc. says it plans to close its acquisition of R.L. Polk & Co. during the week of July 15, having been granted early termination of the waiting period under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976.

IHS announced plans to acquire R.L. Polk & Co. last month.

R.L. Polk & Co. consists of two divisions – Polk and CARFAX – that provide actionable market intelligence, powerful tools and analytics and extensive vehicle history data. The combination of R.L. Polk with IHS Automotive will create a comprehensive capability that will significantly enhance customers’ insights and decision processes across the full vehicle lifecycle with analytics from product planning through manufacturing, sales and into automotive aftermarkets.
