ARK Agency has been sold to OPEN Health, a portfolio company of Amulet Capital Partners
ARK is the first data-driven, digital-first creative agency in healthcare. ARK takes the traditional creative approach to advertising, medical communications and public relations and adds data to help sharpen its effectiveness. From brand strategy to implementation, ARK builds omnichannel campaigns.
OPEN Health is a multi-disciplinary pharmaceutical communications and market access group. This strategic acquisition will enhance its creative and digital capabilities.
Lincoln acted as the exclusive financial advisor to ARK, working closely with the shareholders throughout the process. Lincoln ran a narrow auction with a select number of parties before ultimately awarding OPEN Health a short period of exclusivity. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
James West, Director in Lincoln’s Healthcare Group, commented, “It was a pleasure to advise Dom (Founder and Chief Creative Officer of ARK) and the ARK team. They have built a truly differentiated offering in the market and, therefore, an exciting transaction for Lincoln to advise on. The combination with OPEN Health is a win-win situation allowing both parties to leverage skills, clients and services to create a more valuable group.”
I am delighted with the approach that Lincoln took. Their knowledge of the market and ARK gave them an edge when constructing the optimal process for the ARK shareholders; essentially leading to a streamlined process from engagement through to signing the final agreements. I would highly recommend them to others.
