Skillsoft’s recent sell to Charterhouse Capital Partners for a reported $2.3 billion caught the attention of the e-learning industry as Skillsoft is a major player in the space. But, it’s easy to turn a transaction into a trend, and the Skillsoft sale is being viewed as both a success and a sign of interest in the e-learning marketplace.

Lombardi estimated that Berkshire and Co. as much as tripled their initial investment; Charterhouse is said to have paid $2.3 billion. “It’s not a bad day’s work,” she said.
