U.K.-based digital communications group Investis Digital has hired advisors from Raymond James to sound out potential bidders, banks and alternative lenders for the expected relaunch of an auction process, according to sources.
The advisory boutique is pitching the ECI Partners-owned company off an adjusted EBITDA of £11 million for full-year 2019 to Dec. 31, sources said.
Investis reported a turnover of £20.4 million, according to its 2018 annual report, an increase from £17.3 million the year before. The company reported an adjusted EBITDA of £5.7 million for full-year 2018, up from £3.7 million for full-year 2017.
