John Wiley & Sons, Inc., a global provider of content and workflow solutions supporting research; professional development; and education, announced today that it has acquired Efficient Learning Systems (ELS), Inc, an e-learning system provider in areas like professional finance and accounting, for $24 million. For the fiscal year ending December 2012, ELS’ revenue is expected to be approximately $7 million, and growing rapidly.

ELS’ flagship product, CPAexcel, comprises online self-study, videos, mobile apps, and sophisticated planning tools and has helped over 65,000 professionals prepare for the CPA exam. The service will be delivered directly to professionals around the world seeking to earn credentials. The Company is based in Sedona, Arizona.

Together, we will provide comprehensive, unique e-learning programs to professional finance and accounting students, offering “anywhere, anytime” study, practice, and review to help them achieve the certification they are seeking,” said Rahul Srivastava, Efficient Learning Systems President and CEO, who with his ELS colleagues, is joining Wiley as a result of the acquisition.
