5 December 2018 - US-based specialty investment bank Ziegler served as the sole financial advisor to US-based special education provider Capital Schools, Inc., d/b/a Capital Education Group in its recent acquisition by special education and instructional intervention solutions provider Catapult Learning, the bank said.

The acquisition allows Catapult to accelerate the company's mission of integrating educational and Applied Behavior Analysis services, with a goal of improving outcomes for children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders.

Headquartered in Fairfax, Virginia, CEG creates national model programmes for students with autism spectrum disorders and other specialized learning needs.

The company operates three independent day school campuses (The Auburn Schools) along with home- and center-based Applied Behavioral Analysis therapy programs (Little Leaves and Little Buds, respectively) serving students across Washington, DC; Maryland; and Northern Virginia.

CEG was one of the first ABA therapy providers in the Mid-Atlantic to be accredited as a Behavioral Health Center of Excellence, a testament to the company's overall commitment to service quality across the continuum of care.

Headquartered in Chicago with regional and branch offices throughout the United States, Ziegler provides its clients with capital raising, strategic advisory services, equity and fixed income sales and trading and research.
