Abenex has entered into a strategic partnership with Only Creative Entrepreneurs

Only Creative Entrepreneurs

Only Creative Entrepreneurs is a fast-growing digital marketing platform that is headquartered in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Only has made eight acquisitions in the last two years. Abenex will support Only in its transformational buy-and-build strategy and accelerate its development in Europe and beyond. This partnership provides Abenex with the opportunity to share its operational and buy-and-build expertise to further drive Only’s growth.

Abenex’s mission is to create sustainable value and positive impact for tomorrow’s society, which chimes with the Only community’s focus on sustainability, healthy living and social impact. These key themes are integral to Only’s service offering, which includes Strategy & Design, Concepting & Content and Media & Data.

The Deal

Lincoln International acted as the exclusive buy-side advisor to Abenex, providing both M&A and Capital Advisory services. Lincoln worked closely with the Abenex team to evaluate the opportunity and managed the transaction to a successful conclusion. Next to strategic M&A advice, Lincoln International secured an attractive debt package to support the acquisition and arranged significant incremental committed debt capital to support Abenex with its envisaged buy-and-build strategy.

Our Perspective

Sander Thiadens, Lincoln International Managing Director who led the transaction, commented, “We are very pleased to have supported Abenex on their first investment in the Netherlands. This deal marks a significant milestone for Abenex and we are grateful to be part of that. Only is a fast-growing digital marketing platform with impressive growth prospects and we are confident that the secured financing package enables Abenex to realize its transformational acquisition strategy and organic growth initiatives.”
