Case Study: iProperty Group

In early to mid 2007, Catcha Media, the founder of the iProperty Group, had negotiated and acquired (or entered into agreements to acquire) iproperty.com.my from Ailligent Sdn Bhd in Malaysia, PropertyForce.com in the Philippines, real.co.th in Thailand and Info-Tools Pte Ltd in Singapore. In mid 2007, IPGA Limited (now the iProperty Group) and its subsidiary iProperty Group Asia Pty Ltd were formed as the vehicle for acquiring property portals and associated businesses across South East Asia. IPGA was then floated on the Australian Stock Exchange in September 2007 to fund these and future acquisitions. The float raised US$7.5m on a post money valuation of US$25m.

Case Study: VivaReal

In 2009 and 2010, VivaReal was a relatively unknown player in the Brazilian property portal space.  Over the last 4 years, Brian Requarth and the team have taken VivaReal to a leadership position.  In the process they have built a strong team, opened offices around the country, raised significant capital and delivered strong revenue growth.  During this time, we have helped VivaReal think through its go to market strategy, its product set and its approach to consumer marketing.

What our Clients Say

"I saw the great content you sent round yesterday. Sounds like you will have material for many stories in coming weeks/months. I thoroughly enjoyed the conference and I hope to go to Madrid too, you guys did a great job with it."
Max Sim - Co-founder & CMO Jagonal
"I wanted thank you for giving me opportunity to be part of PPW in BKK last week. It was great to witness your passion and care for the industry in person and a great learning experience both presenting and hearing all the smart and accomplished people speak. We had an excellent response for Lumanetix with numerous discussion and I think we’re going to do really well out of it, even beyond our capacity to service."
Nino Svonja - Founder of Lumanetix
"We have extracted enormous value over the past few days and to sum it up, there was never a dull moment! When we weren’t totally absorbed in what you were saying, especially during your Master Class, we found ourselves completely riveted by the respective panelists and speakers who graciously shared their collective industry experiences with us.  Your insights are invaluable and we really enjoyed the way you challenged anyone who entrained the prospect of “conventional thinking” in the room."
