Thursday 22 September 2022

Australia-based education organization IDP Education (OTC: IDPUF) plans to acquire UK-based education organisation Intake Education, the company said.

Intake brings to IDP three decades of experience in the UK-bound international education sector.

Based across 10 countries and proudly student-first, Intake's employees will bring additional expertise, experience and diversity to IDP's global team of 5,000 employees.

Murray Walton, Interim chief executive officer, IDP, said that by welcoming Intake into its team, IDP will be positioned to help students across more locations access international education.

Mr Walton said IDP was drawn to Intake's integrity and customer-centric values in what can be a noisy market.

Pieter Funnekotter, chief executive officer, Intake, said Intake will make IDP stronger.

IDP will acquire Intake's offices based across Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Philippines, Thailand, Taiwan, India and the UK.

The agreement is expected to be completed in November, and the transaction is subject to customary completion conditions.
