The Wright Group Acquires Mimosa Publications

Posted on March 8, 1999

The Wright Group, a publisher of supplemental language arts materials, has acquired Mimosa Publications, an education publishing company based in Melbourne, Australia. Mimosa publishes reading and language arts, mathematics, science and English Language Teaching (ELT) materials for school markets in the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and Asia. Managing directors John Gilder and Sue Donovan will continue with Mimosa, focusing on product development/publishing and international expansion. The Wright Group, based in Bothell, Wash., is a business unit of Tribune Education Company.

"The acquisition of Mimosa enhances international revenue opportunities and adds to our content development capabilities," said James E. Cushing, Jr., president and CEO of The Wright Group. "We expect Mimosa's mathematics products to be especially successful in the U.K. because the materials meet the curriculum guidelines of the Numeracy Project, a government-funded initiative to improve students' math skills."
