ALEKS merges with McGraw-Hill Education

Client(s) ALEKS Corporation

Jones Day advised ALEKS Corporation, the privately held developer of the ALEKS® adaptive learning technology for the K-12 and higher education markets, in connection with its merger with McGraw-Hill Education. The move strengthens McGraw-Hill Education's position as the leader in delivering personalized learning experiences through adaptive technology. ALEKS uses research-based, artificial intelligence to rapidly and precisely determine each student's knowledge state, pinpointing exactly what a student knows and doesn't know. ALEKS then instructs students on the topics they're most ready to learn, constantly updating each student's knowledge state and adapting to the student's individualized learning needs.

In addition to M&A representation, Jones Day provided banking and tax advice regarding this transaction.
