Clarivate Analytics was formerly the Intellectual Property and Science division of Thomson Reuters. In 2016 Thomson Reuters struck a $3.55 billion dollar deal in which they spun it off into an independent company and sold it to private-equity firms Onex Corporation and Baring Private Equity Asia.[1][3][4]

In May 2018, Clarivate Analytics launched Arabic citation index worldwide.[5]

In 2019 Churchill Capital agreed to merge with Clarivate. The combined company will operate as Clarivate and will list on the New York Stock Exchange.[6] Churchill's CEO Jerre Stead (previously chairman and CEO of IHS Markit)[7] will become Clarivate's executive chairman.[6]
