Gridley & Company LLC (Gridley & Co.), a New York-based boutique investment bank that specializes in the Internet & Information Services industry, today announced that it has served as the exclusive financial advisor to ShopWiki Corp., a New York-based multinational Internet shopping search engine, in its successful sale to Oversee.net, an online marketing solutions and domain firm headquartered in Los Angeles.
As CEO of DoubleClick, we sought Gridley’s advice on potential cross channel database marketing strategies and hired Gridley to advise us on the acquisition of Performics. We were introduced to Performics at Gridley’s annual January conference and Gridley helped to keep those conversations proprietary and avoid a big auction process. Since then, I hired Linda and her team on another assignment and also have been a frequent speaker at her events. Their January conference brings together an exceptional networking opportunity for senior decision makers in the internet and marketing services industries.Kevin Ryan, Former Ceo of Doubleclick and Co-Founder of Shopwiki
