Today we are thrilled to announce that Mach49 has been acquired by Next 15.
Headquartered in London and publicly listed on the London Stock Exchange, Next 15 is the parent company for nineteen individual brands representing a range of market leading data, technology, and brand marketing businesses. They are truly a global company with amazing leadership, well-staffed offices in all major markets, and lofty aspirations, having publicly shared that “Mach49 will become the cornerstone of Next 15’s previously announced plans to create a $100m revenue innovation business.”
We have actually had several acquisition offers and expressions of interest since we founded Mach49, but none of them, until Next 15, provided us with the disruptive, growth-oriented platform, the independence, the all-important cultural fit, and the long-term opportunity to help move the needle for the parent organization we desired to help Mach49 reach our own escape velocity.
We did not take this decision lightly and, in fact, have been talking to Next 15 for over a year, so we wanted to share some of the thinking behind this decision.
