Anumex was launched in 2004, and is today a leading online classifieds site in some of the 31 Mexican federal states. Up until Schibsted’s acquisition, Anumex was owned by its founders and financial investors.
Schibsted’s fully owned existing online classifieds site Segundamano.mx is the largest online classifieds site in Mexico in terms of traffic, content and brand recognition. Anumex will further strengthen this position.
Rolv Erik Ryssdal, CEO of Schibsted Media Group, said: “By combining the two sites, we are able to create additional value for buyers and sellers through an even larger and more liquid marketplace. This acquisition represents another move towards our goal of establishing strong, market-leading online classifieds positions in attractive markets. To achieve this goal, we invest both through organic initiatives, bolt-on acquisitions and structural agreements.”
Per Roman, Managing Partner of GP Bullhound commented: “We are delighted to have advised Anumex and its experienced founders and investors on this landmark transaction in the Mexican online classifieds market. I am also very pleased as this is yet another successful transaction for us in the online marketplace industry.”
This represents the completion of GP Bullhound’s 9th transaction in 2015 and further demonstrates the firm’s transatlantic footprint and capability, and its commitment to working with category-leading businesses in the online marketplace sector.
