Transaction Background

IML’s leading edge proprietary software and hardware solutions are considered to be at the forefront of the global audience engagement industry and used to capture valuable insight helping to both inform business decisions and demonstrate tangible ROI.

The sale to Lumi Mobile Limited (“Lumi”) accelerates IML’s strategy in the mobile application market and provides Lumi with access to a significant blue-chip client base and an international platform from which to accelerate their growth plans.

Our Role

Clarity advised Computershare, the shareholders of IML, on all aspects of the transaction from deal strategy and preparation to negotiation and transaction execution.

Clarity assisted the management in preparing the business for sale, including strategy around complex business separation issues and was responsible for identifying and managing discussions with potential acquirers on a global basis, including hosting management marketing presentations in both North America and Europe.

Having identified the acquirer, Clarity led the negotiations on pricing and deal structure, maintaining momentum and managing the project to its successful completion.
