Incisive blunted

From the FT:

Incisive Media, the business-to-business publisher, is splitting into two. Apax Partners, its private equity owner, will keep control of the American Lawyer Media business in the US, while banks will take over the struggling UK arm.

Apart from putting the final torch to Tim Weller’s plans for global domination (and how long does anyone think he’ll stay in position after Incisive’s lenders move in?) this is likely to presage a good deal of, er, rationalisation of Incisive’s products.
