Media Business Insight

The UK's leading publishing and events business

The Business

Media Business Insight is the UK’s leading publishing and events company. The company owns a unique digitally-led portfolio of leading multichannel, subscription-based brands offering content and insight to key decision-makers and creatives in the media industries.

The Deal

We negotiated the purchase of MBI from a corporate owner, Top Right Group (Ascential), which was rationalising its portfolio through a number of non-core disposals. We delivered a solution against tight timescales laid down by the vendor, providing a combined debt and equity package of £11.7 million for a majority stake.

The Plan

The aim is to maintain and enhance the company’s position as a content-driven thought leader in its markets and to become the ultimate “go to” publisher for information and data. MBI has recently acquired a number of titles to strengthen its market position, and now plans to continue increasing its breadth and depth of offering to drive recurring revenues from subscriptions.
