Over the last years MBK Fincom grew consistently and profitably at a high double-digit rate across categories and geographies. The company constantly strives to identify and offer best value-for-money products to their customers, both under own brands and third-party brands. With Gilde Buy Out Partners they have found a partner to unlock a multitude of growth avenues and to continue their steep trajectory.
OMMAX advised Gilde with a commercial-, digital- and tech due diligence. Therein, the team examined the company’s digital performance (incl. organic visibility, paid marketing campaigns and retention activities, etc.), analyzed customer cohorts & profitability metrics, reviewed the technology platform and assessed overall business plan achievability.
The insights from the due diligence provided by OMMAX helped us gain a thorough understanding of MBK Fincom’s digital and technical performance. We are highly impressed with what the founders and management have achieved in recent years and are excited to support MBK during the next phase of growth.
