Media & Internet
The increasing capabilities of mobile devices, ubiquitous mobile broadband and an ever-growing ecosystem of digital apps have forever changed the way we conduct our daily lives. Digital distribution channels have disrupted how content is consumed. The Internet has also upended the way consumers search for information on goods and services and ultimately transact. Digital platforms are a force for disintermediation and reshaping legacy industries and business models in fundamental ways, from hospitality to food delivery and transportation. The Internet has even reinvented the paradigms of social interaction. It is therefore no surprise that the rise of digital media and e-commerce has brought about both tremendous challenges for incumbents and blue-sky opportunities for innovators.
From inception, Arma has sought to work with emerging leaders in the media & internet sector and the corporate or financial investors seeking to support them. The pace of developments and capital flow in the industry demand specialist insights. With a differentiated sector focus and dedicated M&A and growth financing capabilities, we aim to be the ‘go-to’ advisor to the Digital Economy. Our deal track record speaks to our expertise and experience in driving outsized outcomes for our clients.
