De Metz advises WeTransfer on its acquisition of Present Plus
De Metz (Otto Nunnikhoven) advises WeTransfer on its acquisition of Present Plus a digital design agency based in Amsterdam.
With more than 85 million transfer per month, Amsterdam (the Netherlands) based WeTransfer is one of the most successful file-sharing services in Europa and the US. The companies were already very close: Present Plus had worked on building several of WeTransfer’s products, including its mobile apps. Clients of Present Plus include including Adidas, MR PORTER, British Airways, PostNL, Sonos and Christie’s. Present Plus’ design team will be integrated into WeTransfer’s design team. The transaction allows Wetransfer to focus more on its product design. Initially the design team of WeTransfer shall work on WeTransfer’s website and its upcoming OSX (Mac) desktop app and its website.
The transaction was extensively covered in (online) media, including Techcrunch (http://techcrunch.com/2016/03/10/wetransfer-present-plus/) and Emerce (http://www.emerce.nl/nieuws/wetransfer-koopt-digitaal-designbureau-present-plus).
