MH advises Mobeus on its further investment in ATG Media

Thursday 25 April 2013

Corporate partner Jonathan Leigh-Hunt and associate Fran Spooner advised Mobeus Equity Partners on its further investment in existing portfolio company ATG Media, the leading UK provider of specialist information and services to the fine art and antiques industry, both in print and on the web, and a global pioneer of live online auctions.

Mobeus’s new investment helped facilitate ATG Media’s acquisition of Bidspotter Inc., the US based leader in industrial and commercial online auctions. The acquisition will broaden ATG Media’s existing auction platforms, the-saleroom.com and i-bidder.com to create a business with leading sites for general auctions, including plant and machinery, property and agricultural sales alongside a leading portal for live and timed art and antiques auctions.

 Marriott Harrison acted for Mobeus (then Matrix Private Equity) on the original MBO of ATG Media from DMG Media in October 2008.
