AGC Partners is pleased to announce that its client, BlogHer, Inc. (backed by Venrock, Comcast Ventures and Azure Capital), the Web’s leading cross-platform media network created by and for women in social media, has been acquired by SheKnows (backed by Great Hill Partners), the world’s leading women’s lifestyle media platform and family of top lifestyle sites. The acquisition gives SheKnows Media 75.3 million unduplicated unique visitors per month, which is more than the current number-one women’s lifestyle media brand (comScore, Multiplatform Lifestyles Rankings, September 2014). The combined company enables both influencers and brands to monetize and market to the media habits of today’s female consumer by creating and distributing premium-quality content and social engagement at scale. With a team led by Jon Guido, AGC Partners acted as sole financial advisor to BlogHer.
The creativity and expertise of Jon and the AGC team were instrumental in bringing this transaction together. Uniting BlogHer with SheKnows Media accelerates our ability to create opportunities for women in social media to gain community, education, exposure and economic empowerment.Lisa Stone, CEO, BlogHer
