According to Slator News the price of the acquisition was not disclosed.

Association of Translation Companies' General Secretary Geoffrey Bowden has been interviewed by the influential Public Sector Executive magazine about the crisis in the procurement of language services by the UK government and other public sector organisations.  The interview follows the publication by the ATC of its report: 'Recommendations for the future procurement of language service in the public sector'.
