Caybon Holding AB (the Company) has today signed a binding agreement to acquire all the shares of Future Media Group ("FMG") for a total upfront acquisition price, expressed as Enterprise Value, of 160 MSEK.
Future Media Group consists of five business areas in the digital marketing space and is based in Sweden and Norway. With their in-house capabilities FMG develops, designs and executes marketing concepts for publishers and media channels, in order to create attractive value propositions towards advertisers. Through competitive intelligence, trend analysis and co-creation with partners FMG seeks to innovate digital marketing to help clients develop new revenue streams.
With this acquisition Caybon will reinforce its offering of digital marketing campaigns. FMG also has strong relationships with Nordic Publishers. Caybon believes that FMG's offering can be introduced in Caybon's international network and should be well received.
Richard Båge, CEO of Caybon said, "I have followed FMG since it started and have been impressed with their development. I envisage that FMG's offering will be well received in the other geographical markets where Caybon operates. I have known CEO Linus as a close colleague before he founded FMG and I am very thrilled that he will continue to lead FMG as a separate business area in the Caybon Group."
Linus Wennerström, founder and CEO of Future Media Group, added, "I very much look forward to FMG becoming part of the Caybon family of digital media companies. It is a logical home for our business to continue to grow and develop with the support of Caybon's international network."
FMG will be consolidated in the Campaign segment of Caybon as of July 1. The upfront acquisition price for 100 per cent of the shares in FMG is 160 MSEK, expressed as Enterprise Value. Consideration will be comprised of a combination of cash and of newly issued shares in Caybon. The parties have agreed on a potential, additional earn-out compensation, which is dependent on the level of operating earnings for FMG (EBIT) in 2022-2024. Total enterprise value, including earn-out compensation, could as a maximum amount to 230 MSEK if all EBIT targets are met during 2022-2024.
 The FMG group did not have the same structure in 2021 as now, so net sales and ebit has been calculated to the best of our ability to show how the current group would perform in 2021.
