Ocean Media, a Lonsdale Capital Partners (“Lonsdale”) backed leading provider of exhibitions and events in the UK and producer of specialist publications, today announced that it has completed two bolt-on acquisitions; Mercury Events Ltd (“Mercury”), which provides UK based B2C wedding shows, and LMC Ltd (“LMC”), better known as The London Stationery Show. These acquisitions form part of an active buy and build strategy to add complementary divisions to the core business. Lonsdale backed the MBO of Ocean Media in October 2015 with the vision of creating a larger and more significant player in UK exhibitions and events.

The acquisitions form part of an active buy and build strategy implemented under Lonsdale’s ownership, which will supplement Ocean’s forecasted organic growth.
