We’re expanding our mobile portfolio. Know anyone who wants to sell?

That’s the email I got in this morning from a very big, international media company.

They’re looking to expand their mobile portfolio with joint ventures and acquisitions.

“What sort of mobile services?” I asked the chap.

“Anything. We’ll take a look at anything mobile and see if we can do business,” came the reply.

So.

If you’ve got a company you’d like to sell, or if you’d be interested in discussing joint ventures, we should talk.  I’ll plug you in.

If your business or concept is the sort of thing that an international media conglomerate might like like, definitely email.   So I’m thinking mobile consumer related services and applications.

Whack me a few lines as an overview and I’ll forward it to the chap.  If there’s interest, I’ll connect you.

As ever, I’m on ewan@mobileindustryreview.com.

Doesn't sound like a company with a vision, they just want to get into mobile. Then again if they told you exactly what they wanted a lot of bullshit companies would come their way with a fancy powerpoint saying they can solve all their needs. This is tough call, but I say give people more detail.

They're already in mobile — think big media and based out of a location
that might not readily spring to mind.

The chap's got a remit to go out and look for JV and acquisitions and
obviously he's got a strategy in place for that. He just dropped me a note
to see if I could suggest others. I asked his permission and posted it up
as I thought it'd be a lot more use to people.

How much are they paying? I have a few ideas for companies I could probably set up within a few weeks? 😉
