LD&A Jupiter has acted as an exclusive financial advisor to Linkdex on its sale to ScribbleLive, a Canadian content marketing software company with deep data science capabilities. Based in Toronto ScribbleLive currently has offices in ten different cities worldwide.
Linkdex brings strong relationships with some of the world's largest brands and agencies making the company a powerful addition to ScribbleLive's partner network. Linkdex' acquisition by ScribbleLive also heralds new content marketing and SEO software capabilities as an all-in-one marketing platform, enabling marketers to operationalize their strategies, drive content creation, optimize audience targeting and measure impact.
Linkdex CEO Mark Smith commented: "There's no denying the power of content marketing when attempting to engage, inform, or entertain." said Mark Smith, CEO of Linkdex. "But without great SEO, compelling content can fail to reach its intended audience, while great SEO without the right content to support it creates a whole different set of challenges. By joining ScribbleLive we're overcoming that operational disconnect, bringing the two disciplines together, and helping our customers ensure marketing success." Mark Smith will continue leading his 40-person team as a division within ScribbleLive.
"It is a global game" commented Marc Deschamps, LD&A Jupiter's Managing Partner and Co-founder. "This transaction demonstrates the importance of international reach for our clients, their technologies and services. ScribbleLive's products will now benefit from an improved reach in Europe, and so will Linkdex in North America. This type of deal between European and North American partners perfectly exemplifies LD&A Jupiter's M&A and cross-border transaction capabilities."
