Insights in business news

Work made the business news in the Scotsman on Friday, with the news that we've acquired our North American partner. Although we've known this internally for a little while, it's good to see it's been thought newsworthy in a national newspaper.

It is a big deal for the company. North America is our largest market, and growing, so the acquisition makes a lot of sense. I have been hoping - in my general ignorance of detailed business practicalities - that it would happen for some time, but didn't know whether it would be a practical business proposition for us. I guess it was!

Thanks to tobyaw for spotting it - our internal notification of such things has been a bit slow off the mark this time!
