Overview & Background

Ticketscript is Europe’s leading provider of cloud-based, self-serve event ticketing, promotion and management software, enabling small-mid sized event organisers to carry out these activities themselves rather than relying on third party agencies such as Ticketmaster. Since its launch in 2006, the company has grown at a rapid rate and now has offices in Amsterdam, London, Antwerp, Berlin and Barcelona. In 2013, ticketscript powered more than 11 million ticket sales for over 70,000 events.

Positioning Process

As ticketscript’s exclusive financial advisor, we were asked to run a process including both a fund-raise and a sale of shares by small angel investors. We positioned the company as the European #1, having routinely made innovations that have subsequently become market standard, and optimised its repeatable sales engine – therefore a smart bet for growth equity investors to accelerate growth and international expansion.

Results

Ticketscript received $11.8mn from FF&P Private Equity, who welcomed the opportunity to increase its ownership by cashing out smaller shareholders. FF&P represented the ideal partner for ticketscript, due to their proven experience in facilitating the scaling and international expansion of growth businesses.
