Translink Corporate Finance advised Miss Group, an International Web Hosting Group that offers a range of hosting related services, on the acquisition of the Spanish web hosting company ADW Europe SL. Founded in 2014, Miss Group has grown rapidly and is today one of the world’s fastest-growing hosting companies with over 900,000 hosted sites and a turnover of approximately €60m.
The acquisition of ADW Europe SL is the fourth transaction that Translink’s Swedish office, Anecta, has advised Miss Group on this year. The acquisition adds a further 1,400 international SME customers to the Group and is the first Spanish bolt-on to Profesional Hosting, which was acquired by Miss Group in 2019. The combination of the two businesses is expected to accelerate revenue and EBITDA growth for Miss Group in the Spanish market.
Mattias Kaneteg, Founder and CEO of Miss Group:
“With an impressive and established track record spanning more than 20 years, ADW Europe SL’s capability to deliver excellent services to clients both in Spain and internationally, combined with its deep-rooted knowledge of web hosting and other services, will support our growth in Spain and other markets as part of our ongoing international growth.
Once again, Anecta has successfully managed a smooth cross-border transaction together with its global network Translink Corporate Finance.“
ADW Europe SL’s founder, Adolfo Doliwa:
“At ADW we’ve always operated with a clear focus on continuous improvement and the satisfaction of our clients. It was crucial for us to find a business that shares our customer-first approach and values, and we’ve found that in Miss Group. We’re extremely pleased to be joining Professional Hosting as part of Miss Group to enhance the breadth and depth of services and support we can offer to our customers.”
Fredrik Ullberg, Partner at Anecta, Translink Sweden:
”It has been a pleasure to work with Miss Group and the team in Spain to complete Miss Group’s second acquisition in the country. ADW has a well-renowned brand in Spain with a strong customer base that fits with Miss Group’s growth journey.”
