We ended March on a high note with some great M&A news for our client MyBuilder. The UK company was recently acquired by HomeAdvisor, an IAC company (NASDAQ: IAC) considered one of the largest home marketplaces in the world. JAG Shaw Baker represented the interests of MyBuilder and its investors, including the founder.
This deal is a great example of JAG Shaw Baker’s expertise in creating the right balance between the interests of the selling parties to generate a sensible sell-side proposition to then deliver the sale to the buyer. The firm is proud to have been a part of this deal which was effectively done in a sharp two week period.
According to Nick Crabtree, Partner, M&A at JAG Shaw Baker, the team’s experience in successfully completing sales of venture-backed companies with diverse shareholder make-up was key to the deal. JAG Shaw Baker has acted on several deals with a similar landscape including the sale of Fits.me to Rakuten, Wool and the Gang to Blue Gem and Peak to French publisher, Hachette in late 2016.
