Moore Stephens' Corporate Finance team advises on the sale of Webcredible

The transaction
Based in London, Webcredible is a leading experience design agency with a global reach and 15 years’ experience in helping clients to innovate, transform, and succeed in a digital world. It has been acquired by Inviqa, a leading digital consultancy and software development company.

The acquisition helps Inviqa to expand its customer and user experience capabilities in response to client demand, while Inviqa adds an improved development capability for Webcredible’s clients.

Our role
We were the exclusive advisor to Webcredible throughout the sale process, including:
  • the preparation of an information memorandum on Webcredible;
  • identification and approach to potential acquirers;
  • solicitation and negotiation of offers through to the successful completion of the company sale;
  • tax assistance on the sale including: review of the deal financing, assessment of Entrepreneur’s Relief availability, analysis of the consideration structure, and commentary of the employment contract.

Damian Ryan, Corporate Finance Partner at Moore Stephens, commented: “We saw this as an excellent opportunity to assist two great agencies in combining design skills with the delivery of transformative digital technology.
“As the demands from clients to deliver full-service offerings increase, mergers like this one between Webcredible and Inviqa are likely to be more common in the future. Companies are looking to consolidate not only skillsets and capabilities but also client rosters. In this case, both Webcredible and Inviqa are able to offer an expanded consultancy offering to their clients who include some of the UK’s most recognisable brands.”
