In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...

Times Publishing Co. Announces Plans to Sell Congressional Quarterly, Inc.

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Times Publishing Co. of St. Petersburg, Fla., announced today it is exploring the sale of Congressional Quarterly, Inc.

Based in Washington, D.C., Congressional Quarterly is the nation's leading publisher of news and information on politics, public policy and legislative activity at the federal, state and local levels. With nearly 170 reporters, editors and researchers covering governmental activity, CQ is recognized as a leader in the development of Web-based information products.

Paul Tash, chairman of Times Publishing, said the move represents the company's decision to direct investment resources toward properties in Florida, including its award-winning newspaper, the St. Petersburg Times.

"From its inception, CQ has enjoyed a sterling reputation for journalistic excellence, and in recent years its executives and its staff have created a prosperous and growing enterprise," Tash said. "CQ will attract many potential buyers who recognize its rich tradition and bright future."

CQ President Robert W. Merry, who joined CQ in 1987 after a dozen years covering Washington for the Wall Street Journal, said, "The Times Publishing Co. has been a wonderful steward of this business. But to maintain CQ's double-digit growth, we appreciate that it's time to bring our enterprise under the banner of an owner with national or international reach."

Since its founding in 1945 by Nelson Poynter, then owner of the St. Petersburg Times, CQ has grown into the leading publisher of information on federal, state and local governmental activity. Though it began in print with the authoritative and respected CQ Weekly magazine, which continues to be a leading publication for political and policy professionals, the company today garners a majority of its revenue from electronic, real-time information. CQ.com, created in the late 1990s, is a highly successful subscription-based information service that tracks congressional activity for the sophisticated Washington audience and is seen by many industry analysts as an innovative service that pushed CQ to the first rank of digital publishing.

Similarly, Capitol Hill watchers turn to CQ's daily newsletter, CQ Today, both in print and online, for key news and information on each day's legislative happenings. CQ also reaches far beyond the Beltway with its free CQ Politics Web site, which offers news, blogs and interactive features on politics and campaigns for political professionals and opinion leaders of all stripes. And state and regional government leaders across the nation depend on CQ's Governing magazine for in-depth analysis of the trends affecting their state governments.

Times Publishing has retained the Jordan, Edmiston Group, Inc., a New York-based investment banking firm, to handle the transaction. JEGI performed the same role last year in the sale of CQ's books division, CQ Press, to Sage Publications of Thousand Oaks, Calif.

Wilma Jordan, CEO and founder of JEGI, said, "We are extremely pleased and privileged to be representing CQ. Bob Merry and his team have developed market-leading information products and cutting-edge Web content on government, politics and public policy, and we are confident that new ownership will enable the management team to continue its successful strategy of growth and innovation."
