KWM advises on Vobile Group’s assets acquisition from an Australian data analytics company

King & Wood Mallesons (KWM) advised Vobile Group Limited on the acquisition of assets from IP-Echelon, an Australian premium provider of data analytics with a focus on data analytics technology development and applications in content protection services.

The KWM team was responsible in the preparation and negotiation of the relevant transaction documents, as well as conducting due diligence matters in connection with the transaction in respect of both Hong Kong and Australian laws.

Vobile Group Limited (SEHK Stock Code: 3738) is a leading online video content protection service provider that is principally engaged in providing Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions to the world’s largest film studios, TV networks and other content owners and online video distribution sites.

Commenting on the transaction, Hong Kong partner Anthony Wan said: “Our client is one of the highly-regarded and experienced companies in the content protection industry and we are pleased to have worked with them to deliver this transaction. Following the OPUS Group’s listing in October 2018, this marks another successful case showcasing our integrated Hong Kong and Australian capabilities in an M&A transaction.”

The KWM Hong Kong team was led by partner Anthony Wan, with support from associate Albert Wong and registered foreign lawyer Wallace Wong. The Australian team advised the client in respect of the Australian law and was led by partners Will Heath and Kai-Chen Lamb.
