Egads, there are mergers and acquisitions galore today. We've already reported on two acquisitions in the communications field; they're not the first ones in the last six months, and it's unlikely they'll be the last. Edelman is up next: It announced today it acquired Grassroots Enterprise. Politico reported it first.
GRE brings with it a platform called Grassroots Multiplier that will give Edelman the in-house capability to connect people with policymakers and members of Congress.
Edelman said Grassroots Enterprise will be valuable both in the strategic sense and in the nuts-and-bolts capability the firm brings to grass-roots advocacy, including activity on social networks like Facebook.
So expect a third M&A story from us later today. The release is here for now.
