Ayima announced today that it has signed a letter of intent to acquire a leading UK-based Digital Marketing and Content Marketing Agency.
The initial purchase price is GBP 4.05M (47.5 MSek), of which GBP 2.2M will be cash and the remainder will be shares in Ayima Group AB. The cash consideration will be financed through either a share issue, a loan, or a combination of both. The arrangement also includes an earn-out that will provide a strong incentive for profit growth in the following 3 years. The purchase price represents a multiple of 6 times the adjusted EBITDA for the most recent financial year.
This second acquisition will provide another boost to Ayima’s stated goal of expansion through acquisitions, adding another profitable and rapidly growing business and further expanding the talent in the group.
The deal is expected to be completed before 31 October and further information will be released when it becomes available.
