McGraw Hill Financial Inc, the parent of the Standard & Poor’s ratings agency, said it would buy SNL Financial LC, a financial data and information company owned by private equity firm New Mountain Capital LLC, for about $2.23 billion.

The financial impact of the acquisition will be mitigated by tax benefits of about $550 million, the New York-based company said in a statement.

The cash deal is expected to add to adjusted diluted earnings per share in 2016, excluding amortization, McGraw Hill said.

McGraw Hill, which also reported second-quarter results on Monday, said adjusted net income from continuing operations rose 17 percent to $335 million.
