Media & Marketing

To survive online, media firms are merging or recombining. We see a blurring of the lines between cable and streaming as well as between mobile telecoms and entertainment. Ad spending is shifting to new platforms – or to ad-free platforms.

In the online games and gambling world, the hunt for operating licenses is on, along with a trend toward vertical integration of content creation and distribution.

Many of our experienced professionals have operational experience in the industry as well as 10+ years’ experience as M&A integration and carve-out advisors.

PMI challenges specific to this sector:

Acquirers are still digesting past acquisitions while they cannot afford to wait to move on to the next target. Sector challenges include:

• regulatory scrutiny to avoid emergence of oligopolies

• realising synergies out of the acquired local and global content

• acquiring and retaining top talent

• consolidating backbone software platforms
