London, 18 October 2018

Leading commodity price reporting agency Argus today announces its acquisition of Integer Research (Integer), a global provider of market intelligence to the fertilizer, industrial chemicals and wire and cable industries.

Integer is respected for its subscription-based reports, consultancy and events. The company was founded in 2003 by Tim Cheyne, Oliver Hatfield and Philip Radbourne, and has its headquarters in London with supporting teams in Asia and Latin America.

Argus Media chairman and chief executive Adrian Binks said: “Argus’ acquisition of Integer will expand the range and depth of services we offer to our customers. Integer has a unique product offering and this, combined with Argus’ global reach and scale, will offer users powerful market intelligence and insight.”

Integer Managing Director Tim Cheyne said: “This is a natural cultural and strategic fit for Integer and we are excited to build on Argus’ existing global expertise in commodity markets and leverage its technology and platform strengths to the benefit of our customers.”

Argus first entered the global fertilizer markets with the acquisition of price reporting and events business FMB Consultants Ltd (FMB) in 2011 and has since rapidly expanded its global and regional content and conference portfolio for the fertilizer sector, now offering the largest global team of dedicated experts.

The terms of the Integer acquisition were not disclosed.
