Private equity investor Anchor Equity Partners and global investment firm KKR (KKR) have signed a definitive agreement to acquire a controlling stake in leading South Korean mobile commerce company Ticket Monster from Groupon (GRPN). Anchor and KKR, in conjunction with TMON’s management, will jointly acquire a controlling stake in TMON and will inject new capital into the company to help fund its future growth opportunities. Anchor and KKR will hold equal stakes in the company. Some of the world’s largest pension, sovereign wealth funds and institutional investors, including the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and Pavilion Capital, will also be participating as investors in this transaction. Groupon, which acquired TMON in January 2014, will retain a fully diluted 41% minority stake in the company. The investment is based on a $782M fully diluted valuation of TMON. KKR and Anchor will work closely with TMON’s co-founder and CEO Dan Shin and the management team to grow the business. The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2015, subject to regulatory and customary closing conditions.
