THE BUSINESS

Proactive Investors specialises in up-to-the-minute multi-media news provision, events organisation, digital services and investor research. Proactive Investors enables companies to connect with investors in an informative manner. Proactive specialises in providing breaking news, commentary and analysis on hundreds of small-cap listed companies and pre-IPO businesses across the globe, 24/7. As well as a multimedia business, the company organises investor conferences, delivers websites and website tools for listed companies, and compiles sell-side research.

THE DEAL

Mobeus has backed the business to take its services into the US, which is the largest global market with over 7,500 addressable customers and a very active retail investor base. Proactive’s US office will open later this month in Midtown New York. The capital will also be used to add resource to existing international operations and further roll out the recently launched investor tools and sell-side research offer to customers in the UK.

THE PEOPLE

Amit Hindocha led the deal for Mobeus and will join the board. Mobeus introduced Colin Garrett, a veteran non-executive with a track record of growing UK businesses into North America, and Simon Frost, an experienced CFO.
