Results International advises VietBuzzAd on its acquisition by ADK (Japan)

By Andrew Kefford, Jamie Kefford 15 Jan 2020

We are delighted to announce that Results International has advised VietBuzzAd, one of the leading Digital Marketing agencies in Vietnam, on its acquisition by ADK (Japan). This is ADK’s first acquisition since its acquisition by Bain Capital. VietBuzzAd will be part of ADK Connect Network.

VietBuzzAd - ADK (Japan)

VietBuzzAd was established in November 2010 as a digital marketing agency offering online solutions and advertising measurement technology tools for advertisers and agencies. With the Principal’s experience in traditional and digital media, the agency quickly gained traction in the market and expanded ahead of the digital market growth. Hanh Nguyen, the Principal of VietBuzzAd is a leader in Ho Chi Minh City for her digital expertise.

The Founder decided that the timing was right to seek a strategic partner to accelerate growth and financial performance. Results International was appointed to review the company’s strategic options. Results International leveraged its knowledge and network to ensure VietBuzzAd was engaging with the most relevant potential strategic partners. With Results’ strong global access, the engagement with ADK came at just the right time, given its interest in expanding to Vietnam. Thus formed a perfect partnership for the local market and potentially throughout Indo-China.
