2021 was our first full year in operation, having launched the Valearis brand in Q1/2020 (just in time for Corona…).
We look back on a very successful year:
We provided the Commercial-, Digital- and IT-Due Diligence (and often a combination) for 11 deals, of which several closed.
These are the closed deals we supported in 2021:
✔️Perfect Drive Sports Group (All4Golf & CHG), acquired by Bregal Unternehmerkapital
✔️Sovendus (digital voucher network), acquired by Paragon Partners
✔️#YOU (D2C), investment by Tengelmann Ventures
✔️Megabad (e-commerce retailer in the sanitary space), acquired by FSN Capital
✔️Offerista Group (digital retail marketing), acquired by Media Central (a Bregal portfolio company)
✔️LionsHome (an e-commerce content aggregator), acquired by Waterland
In addition, we supported deals and provided Vendor CDD in the following verticals:
🔎 E-commerce (sports),
🔎 Professional services (marketing),
🔎 Consumer Electronics D2C (Direct-to-Consumer),
🔎 Advertising technology (ad-tech),
🔎 Affiliate publishing and…
We also conducted initial outside-in analyses on companies operating in the online 🔨 B2B marketplace as well as the 🎮 videogaming / e-sports sectors.
It was an exciting year in which we manifested our positioning as one of the go-to players for commercial deal advisory in the digital space.
Together with our clients we have learned to do and support deals completely virtually.
We look forward to meeting more clients in person in 2022!
