1105 Media to acquire Contingency Planning and Management Group

Published on .

Chatsworth, Calif.—1105 Media plans to acquire Contingency Planning and Management Group from MCG Capital Corp. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. The deal marks the first acquisition since 1105 Media was created earlier this year when veteran b-to-b media executive Neal Vitale, backed by private equity firms Nautic Partners and Alta Communications, bought 101communications and Stevens Publishing. “This is the opening salvo,” said Vitale, president-CEO of 1105 Media and former president-CEO of Variety, adding that he expects the deal to close by the end of the year. “We have other deals in the works to keep our pages filled.” Lambertville, N.J.-based Contingency Planning’s products include two conferences: CPM West and CPM East.
