The team that acquired the Times Educational Supplement (TES) from News International and launched its successful transformation into a global internet brand has come back together to buy New Scientist from Reed Business Information (RBI). Bernard Gray, Louise Rogers and Matthew O’Sullivan worked together on the purchase and initial development of TES from a traditional newspaper with a small internet presence into a global teaching brand with the majority of its revenues coming from online activities. The team launched the hugely successful Teaching Resources portal, which has just achieved its billionth download after 10 years in operation, and the successful internet TES Jobs site, among other innovations. They have come back together to help New Scientist, already an iconic brand, achieve similar transformative success. “RBI has been a fine steward of the New Scientist brand for many years,” said Gray, executive chairman of the new company. “We feel we can build on that heritage by combining the success our team has had in a numerous publishing ventures with the deep sector and market knowledge of the in-house team. In a world where science and technology is playing a more and more central role in people’s lives, providing an understanding of the accelerating pace of change in science is a huge growth opportunity for New Scientist.” The team will work with John MacFarlane, publishing director of New Scientist, Sumit Paul-Choudhury, editor-in-chief, and the rest of the New Scientist team to make the most of the global potential of the title in the most dynamic sector of the world economy. Potential developments include further digital products and face-to-face developments of the brand, along with efforts to appeal to a wider age range of readers. “I am very struck by how New Scientist can bring the world of technology to young people,” said Louise Rogers, non-executive director of New Scientist Limited. “In Britain, the government is very keen to promote interest in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. I think that New Scientist is an ideal way to inspire young people to take up scientific or engineering careers.” As well as working together at TES, the team has experience at other publishing houses, including United Business Media and in non-executive roles at Immediate Media, the successor organisation to BBC Magazines. “We like working together, and we have over 50 years of combined experience in publishing and other media. We are delighted to be teaming up with John, Sumit and the rest of the New Scientist team to maximise New Scientist’s enormous potential in a digital environment,” added Rogers. John MacFarlane was also enthusiastic about the new team: “I have had the pleasure of working with Bernard, Louise and the rest of the team in recent times, and I am delighted we have been able to come together in a new company. This is just the kind of injection of expertise and energy we need. I would like to thank RBI for their support over many years, and I look forward to the great new opportunities that lie ahead.” As well as strong publishing credentials, the new team is backed by deep financial knowledge and expertise. Matthew O’Sullivan was previously finance director at TES and the successful chief financial officer of a number of other companies in his 30-year finance career. “It’s great to have the team back together,” he said. As well as a substantial investment by the management team, the company is also backed by a number of other personal investors from outside the firm. The decision to divest New Scientist reflects RBI’s ongoing strategic priority of focusing on its data and analytics business. David Wilson, managing director at Reed Business Information, said: “We would like to thank all of the staff for their dedication and commitment to the company over the years and we look forward to the continued success of New Scientist.” For further information please contact Neil Bennett at Maitland on +44 (0)20 7379 5151 New Scientist Limited is a new company which was formed specifically for the purpose of acquiring the New Scientist title.

Patent
Tes Co., Hwang, Lee, Shin and Cha | Date: 2015-05-20

Disclosed therein is a thin film deposition apparatus. The thin film deposition apparatus includes: a chamber having a predetermined inner space; a substrate support part disposed inside the chamber and supporting a substrate; and a gas supply device having at least one supply channel for supplying process gas to the substrate and an activation channel which has a gas activation unit for activating the process gas, wherein the activation channel has an opened lower portion and a sealed upper portion.

TES Co. | Date: 2014-10-20

The present invention relates to an apparatus for transferring a substrate. The apparatus includes a supporting member; an elevating and rotating member; a transferring unit; a first arm whose one end is supported by the elevating and rotating member to be rotatable; a second arm whose one end is supported by the transferring unit to be rotatable and whose the other end is supported by the other end of the first arm to be rotatable; and an arm driving part, installed on the first arm, which drives the other end of the second arm to pivot on the other end of the first arm to allow the first arm and the second arm to be folded or unfolded and thus removes the state of singularity by rotating the other end of the second arm based on the other end of the first arm.
