Mab-listed audiovisual media companies Agile and Secuoya want to grow, either through acquisitions or new projects. To do so, financing is needed Agile and Secuoya have decided to raise a capital increase to get it.


Agile raises capital to meet the Adman acquisition

Agilewhich has been listed on the Mab since last year, will increase capital by a maximum amount of €4M through the issue of new shares.

The main objective of enlargement is to raise the necessary resources to meet the purchase of Adman interactivea group specialising in video advertising, with which it has an agreement of intent to acquire 100% of the shares in exchange for €4.1 million in cash and shares. This amount could be increased by a further €4 million depending on variables related to the achievement of ebitda targets, among others.

Agile also wants to finance the working capital generated by the expected growth, thus allowing for a better working capital balance. On the other hand, it wants to strengthen its organic growth by strengthening the sales team in the international market and achieving better interoperability between the recently acquired companies.

"In addition to the already mentioned Adman, Agile bought in May the OTTN group, which develops technology for pay-TV platforms, telecoms and media", says Diego Gutierrez, corporate finance expert at Agile. Abra-Invest.

Agile has tripled in value since it was listed on the Mab, and has grown its revenues by 50% per annum between 2011 and 2015, increasing its turnover from €2M to €8M.

The Mab listing has also helped the company to obtain resources to grow abroad; in the last financial year Agile opened offices in Mexico, Brazil, Argentina and Colombia and also established collaboration agreements in Chile, El Salvador and Peru, among others. On the Latin American continent, the Spanish company began working with press and television giants such as Telefé (Telefónica), Globo, El Comercio, as well as AT&T and Bloomberg.

Secouya, capital increase to finance the construction of Television City

Redwood, Grupo de Comunicación S.A. is the parent company of a communication group dedicated to the provision of audiovisual services, content creation and production, and communication and marketing, which operates through 8 companies.
