One of the United States’ largest health insurers is just about to grow even more. WellPoint is buying Amerigroup for $4.9 billion.
The point of the purchase is for WellPoint to bolster its Medicaid business — and with the acquisition, it’ll now be present in 19 states.
The deal was spurred by the industry being shaken up by President Obama’s health care reform plan, which would mean drastic changes for the insurance industry and Medicaid.
With WellPoint’s already huge network (after buying 1-800-Contacts and CareMore recently, as well) about to be combined with Amerigroup’s, the company seems to be standing strong in the changing industry. See WellPoint’s connections for yourself in this Knowledge Map.
Salesforce.com is extending its force. The global enterprise software company just announced that it’s buying Buddy Media for $689 million.
With the deal said and done, Salesforce will have its hands on a blue-chip list of social media clients, with Ford, Hewlett-Packard and L’Oreal among them. Many major advertisers work with Buddy Media, which helps customers build campaigns on Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter and lets them publish content and monitor the results.
The purchase is just the latest in a series of acquisitions to expand Salesforce’s offerings in the field of social media, which includes Radian6 and Rypple last year.
Thanks to MarketVisual, you can take a look at the impressive network of connections that Salesforce is adding to its own with this move.
The legal world is being shaken up a bit as big names are leaving Dewey & LeBoeuf, after almost half of the firm’s partners have already bailed.
Just as predicted by industry observers, some of the firm’s top lawyers are taking off, too, leaving Dewey in even rougher territory.
Leading mergers and acquisitions lawyer Richard Climan and corporate lawyer
Berge Setrakian have called it quits on Dewey. Weil, Gotshal & Manges is snagging Climan, along with 8 other partners and associates from the firm, giving Weil a pre-eminent West Coast mergers and acquisition practice. Setrakian isn’t leaving alone either; he’s bringing a handful of partners with him over to DLA Piper, the world’s largest law firm.
With all these games of musical chairs, it’ll be interesting to take a look at the changing (and growing) networks in the legal industry. Check out this Knowledge Map of Dewey & LeBoeuf’s connections.
Banking giant Goldman Sachs announced changes to its board today, which included naming a new lead director. Along with putting James J. Schiro at the helm, as lead director and head of its corporate governance and nominating committee, the board also lost one of its female members after just recently boosting its number of women.
The shake-up comes after shareholders put pressure on the bank to appoint a new director in order to give the board more power, since Lloyd Blankfein serves as both chairman and chief executive. Schiro has been on the board for 3 years and has past ties with Zurich Financial Services and PricewaterhouseCoopers.
These are some serious players with big ties in the financial sector, where networking is everything. Check out this map of Goldman Sachs’ connections and see more at MarketVisual
