In one of the biggest WordPress acquisitions ever, WP Engine announced that they’ve acquired Flywheel, another popular managed WordPress host.

The numbers aren’t public, but this helps WP Engine move towards a $1 Billion valuation, as it prepares for an IPO in the somewhat-near future. Flywheel’s recurring annual revenue was $18 million at the time of the acquisition, compared to $132 million for WP Engine.
