Businesses must increasingly market and advertise internationally to compete in today’s global business climate.

The company leverages this ever-increasing need for international business exposure, providing many unique channels which enable advertisers to target strategic print/digital media and demand-generation exposure, across a wide range of Global media-owners. The company has built a compelling stable of media partners who rely on the company as their de facto US-based presence – for selling advertising to predominantly US and Canadian advertisers. These media partners include B2B & B2C print and digital media, demand-generation programs, and much more.

In the US, the company has relationships with a wide range of advertisers, including many Fortune 500 businesses among their client list. These advertisers need global visibility in key industry verticals including technology, engineering, manufacturing, defense, and more. The company operates in the US with 2 small offices. An individual Buyer could conceivably transition to a fully virtual model, or consider a hybrid approach utilizing co-working space(s). A strategic Buyer may consider merging any ongoing office needs into their own existing infrastructure. With over 30 years of successful operations, this profitable business also has the benefit of solid recurring revenue, due to existing relationships already established with both media-owners and corporate advertisers. The 2022 forecast is strong, anticipating another year of solid revenues and strong earnings.

This is a perfect opportunity for a marketing or media executive seeking to make their entrepreneurial mark. Alternatively, a strategic buyer looking for topline B2B services growth through acquisition can quickly add revenues and strong earnings to the corporate P&L, while expanding into a new market segment of Global Media Representation. If you’re looking for a competitively differentiated business, offering a compelling value proposition in the media industry, take a closer look at this promising acquisition opportunity.
