Georgiou Payne Stewien LLP (GPS for short) represented MoniMedia, an award-winning digital commerce agency headquartered in Hong Kong with offices in Singapore, Taiwan and Vietnam, in respect of its acquisition by Tag, a media production company offering marketing execution services.
MoniMedia provides e-commerce and omni-channel solutions for global clients. GPS has previously advised MoniMedia on an earlier round of financing.
Tag is a global company based in the UK specialising in a wide range of marketing execution services, from content creation and activation to sourcing and delivery, analytics and subject matter expertise.
“We are delighted to join the Tag family and complement their end-to-end marketing execution capabilities with new service offerings, working together to drive exceptional connected brand and customer experience across every touchpoint. Our team is excited to embark on this journey along with Tag to fuel innovation and drive agility, cost efficiency and performance at scale across all channels,” commented David François, Founder and Managing Director of MoniMedia.
“Customer experience has become increasingly focused around digital touchpoints, which has been further amplified by the impact of COVID-19. Having navigated our clients through recent digital transformations and recognising the impact of the changing retail landscape on their businesses, we are excited to bolster our e-commerce services by welcoming MoniMedia to Tag,” commented David Kassler, Group CEO at Tag.
"This is a great achievement for David, his team and Tag. I have been advising David François and MoniMedia for over 10 years and it has been great to see their growth and this merger. I wish the MoniMedia team success in their new venture with Tag. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to support my client through this exciting acquisition,” said Brett Stewien, the GPS partner who led the firm’s deal team.
“Brett Stewien and the GPS team have been a pleasure to work with,” commented David François. “Brett’s experience and guidance were very important in navigating the complexities of the acquisition process. I am very grateful for GPS’s high-quality assistance and advice.“
