OMMAX Advised Gilde Buy Out Partners on the Acquisition of MBK Fincom

#Commercial Due Diligence

OMMAX advised Gilde Buy Out Partners on the acquisition of MBK Fincom (ProduceShop), a dynamic, technology-driven and pan-European e-commerce company based in Switzerland, offering a broad range of product categories from indoor and outdoor furniture to sports and fitness equipment.

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.
