OMMAX advised MediaShop International Group on the acquisition of Geschenke 24, a leading online provider of personalized gifts active in the DACH region. Over the last years, Geschenke 24 grew consistently and profitably as it caters with its personally engraved or printed gifts to the strong e-commerce trend of inspirational and personalized shopping – as illustrated by the success of companies like Etsy.
OMMAX advised MediaShop with a commercial and digital due diligence analyzing digital market dynamics, the target company’s customer metrics and its digital capabilities (e.g. organic performance, paid marketing efficiency or customer experience on the digital customer journey) – always benchmarked against key competitors.
Philipp Nachbaur, CEO at MediaShop International Group, points out: “Geschenke 24 constantly strives to identify the best personalized gifts ideas for its customers for many different occasions. As a fast-growing online provider with high brand awareness and market leader in personalized gift solutions we saw the perfect opportunity to invest as it perfectly accommodates our strategy to expand our e-commerce and brand-building business even further. We are excited to support Geschenke 24 during the next growth phase. We have definitely appreciated working with OMMAX and are highly satisfied with its services that provided us with a nuanced assessment of the digital performance of the target company.”
Toni Stork, Founder and Partner at OMMAX, comments: “It was a pleasure to work with MediaShop and the management of Geschenke 24 throughout the commercial and digital due diligence work.”
