TECHNOLOGY & MEDIA

Ashcombe has completed multiple transactions in the media & technology sector over the last 10 years, borne out of certain key long term relationships and our other sector focuses. We have particularly strong relationships with a number of tech businesses which we have supported from an early stage, on occasion taking an equity stake. Whilst our work with technology companies covers a broad range of sub-sectors, we have concentrated in particular on the following industries:

  • Ticketing
  • Property
  • Online communities
  • SaaS businesses
  • Media and publishing

From our experience of these technology businesses we are able to advise clients on the importance of certain key drivers in delivering premium valuations for the businesses concerned.
