The acquisition backs Bertelsmann's push into digital education and training, and will boost its presence in the United States, a growth market which already contributes around a fifth of its sales.

British education publisher Pearson (PSON.L) said it was on track to return to underlying profit growth this year after demand for digital course material in the United States helped it report slightly better-than-expected first-half results. Shares in the 174-year-old group were up 3 percent in early trading as Pearson, which earns around 80 percent of its income in the second half, said its transformation to a digital provider was taking shape. The company has been through a tumultuous few years, with Chief Executive John Fallon forced to cut thousands of jobs and sell assets such as the Financial Times newspaper to fund a move into ebooks, rental schemes and online courses.
ProctorU, the Birmingham based online proctoring company and Pearson, a London-based education service, are partnering to integrate artificial intelligence and machine learning into Pearson’s MyLab portfolio.

Pearson (PSON.L), the world's biggest education company, could move out of its London Strand headquarters as part of its latest drive to cut costs after U.S. students stopped buying so many textbooks. A move from its home of 18 years would mark a significant step for Pearson's executives who are based on the top floors of an Art Deco building on the Strand, next to the Savoy Hotel and close to the Thames. "We are committed to a London HQ," said Ben Almond, Pearson's global head of property.

Britain's leading stock index was lifted by strong results from British Airways owner IAG, while HSBC joined French banks in reporting weaker profit which hit its shares. A weak pound, which gives an accounting boost to companies whose earnings are in dollars, also helped Britain's FTSE 100 (.FTSE) to close up 0.86 percent on the day. IAG (ICAG.L) was up 5.8 percent and near a four-month high after a 75 percent jump in quarterly profit.
“Small but beautiful” was how analysts at Citi described Pearson today after the academic publisher reported a positive start to the year. Shares shot 39.2p higher to 870p as Catherine O’Neill at Citi said Pearson’s turnaround now looks firmly on track. Pearson confirmed it should deliver operating profit of between £520 million and £560 million for the year, and its target of hitting £300 million of annualised cost savings by 2020 remains on course.
British education publishing company Pearson (PSON.L) said it was on track to return to underlying profit growth this year after revenue rose 1 percent in the first quarter - the quietest for a firm aligned to the academic year. Chief Executive John Fallon said Pearson had made a good start to 2018, and it still expected to report its first rise in profit for six years in 2018. Pearson has struggled to adapt quickly enough to the shift to digital and changes in the education market in recent years, resulting in a string of profit warnings.
Private equity firm Vista Equity Partners has said it's merging two of its portfolio companies, Folsom-based PowerSchool and Austin, Texas-based PeopleAdmin, and then plans to sell a stake in the combined company to buyout firm Onex Corp.
The Washington Post reported on Tuesday that Pearson has been embedding messaging into some versions of its learning software programs to track whether students who had received them performed better than students who hadn’t. Privacy concerns are top of mind for investors following high-profile data breaches, such as the scandal involving Facebook Inc. and Cambridge Analytica, which retained information on millions of the social network’s users without their consent. “This issue is definitely in the spotlight and you don’t want to be a company that’s dragged into it,” said Ian Whittaker, an analyst at Liberum Capital Ltd. who rates the stock a sell.
