"This acquisition fits with our strategies of building a premier global equity database and expanding our presence outside the United States," said Morningstar chairman and chief executive Joe Mansueto in a news release.

Hemscott has about 10 U.S-based employees, 70 U.K-based employees and 200 India-based employees. All employees will absorbed by Morningstar and will remain at their respective locations, Morningstar spokesperson Margaret Kirch Cohen told The MFWire.

Marlin & Associates New York LLC served as strategic and financial advisor to Ipreo. Morningstar did not tap an advisor for the deal, according to Cohen.

Hemscott provides fundamental public company data; executive and director information, including detailed biographies and compensation; and historical pricing and volume data on stocks.
