Impact Displays acquired by Once Upon A Time Marketing
Impact Displays (UK) Limited has been acquired by Once Upon A Time Marketing Limited, in a deal advised by KBS Corporate.
Impact Displays is a supplier of retail point-of-sale displays, catering to a wide range of needs including publishers, supermarkets and convenience retailers.
Having been in operation for over 10 years, the shareholders of Impact Displays began to look towards retirement plans, and therefore instructed KBS Corporate with the sale of the business.
Following a thorough research strategy, a significant number of parties expressed an interest, including a mix of both trade and private equity investors.
Ultimately, a deal was agreed with Once Upon A Time, a London based full-service marketing agency, offering a wide-range of services including digital marketing, CRM, advertising and packaging solutions.
The deal presents an ideal acquisition as Impact Displays will benefit from the blue-chip client base associated with Once Upon A Time, as well as the potential for increased geographical coverage.
Matthew Sibley, Deal Executive at KBS Corporate, advised on the deal and commented, ‘I am really pleased with the outcome of this deal, and feel that Once Upon A Time are an ideal strategic fit for Impact Displays. I wish all involved every success for the future.’
