Intralink, the business development and innovation consultancy, completes £19.6m minority equity investment from Mobeus Equity Partners
HMT LLP has advised the shareholders of Intralink, an international business development and innovation consultancy, on their £19.6m minority investment from Mobeus Equity Partners.
Intralink specialises in securing commercial deals between western and Asian tech and sustainability businesses, enabling western companies to expand in Asia, Asian corporates to harness the power of international innovation, and governments to grow their exports and attract foreign investment. For many export-oriented technology firms, Intralink’s teams and networks on the ground present a highly attractive way of cost-effectively accessing distant, fast-growth markets.
Intralink is headquartered in Abingdon, Oxfordshire, and has more than 130 employees operating from 14 offices across Japan, China, Korea, Taiwan, the USA and Europe. With a 33-year track record, the company has been awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise and, in the US, the President’s E Award for Export Services. The success of its business model has led to rapid growth, with revenues doubling over the last three years.
Mobeus’s investment will enable the business to extend its coverage further across Asia, with plans to expand in the ASEAN region and Indian sub-continent, whilst building on its expertise in B2B tech and sustainability.
HMT acted as lead advisors on the transaction which included running a strongly competitive sale process, negotiating key agreements, supporting the business through an extensive due diligence process and project managing the deal to a successful completion.
