    SERVICES
    M&A

    We have been advising several private equity firms on investments in the sport- and media sector. We understand the specifics and dynamics of the very particular sport- and media business.

    Due to our experience and track-record, we exactly understand the requirements of equity buyers and sellers in sports and media.

    Together with our associated investment experts, we are in a position to deliver you tailor-made solutions very fast and advise on several aspects during an acquisition, sales or merger process.

    INVESTMENT & MONETIZATION STRATEGIES

    Investments in media rights - especially in premium rights - have become extremely capital–intensive. Monetisation often times has to be managed within a short period of time. Additionally, the full digitalisation and convergence of media are offering multiple opportunities to monetise content.

    At SN1 Consulting, we provide consultancy services during all phases of such an investment process, including but not limited to investment assessments, bidding processes, risk mitiagion strategies, financial modeling and legal advisory. We understand values and developments in each European market and thus can asses the right investment & monetisation strategy.

    Whether you are looking for linear free- or pay, digital or OTT/direct to consumer strategies, our team of experts provides a view for every market from every angle including the indispensable legal & regulatory perspectives.

    Do you need assistance in implementing your strategy even beyond the borders of your business territories? We have a team of experienced negotiations experts with an unparalleled track record of selling media rights across all platforms in Europe. Due to our experience and track-record, we exactly understand the requirements of equity buyers and sellers in sports and media. Together with our associated investment experts, we are in a position to deliver you tailor-made solutions in a short period of time and advise on several aspects during an acquisition, sales or merger process.

    DIGITAL & OTT

    Digital media is at the core of our DNA. We were part from the very beginning of monetisation of media rights in the digital world and have gained a vast experience and network in the digital world. Whether advertising-funded or pay-models – we can advise on the right strategy and approach and assist you in implementing your digital strategy.

    With OTT becoming the primary way to consume content around the globe, an enormous shift of investments has been seen recently from „traditional“ pay operators to OTT only providers. Although the globally market-leading OTT-entertainment and factual content providers like Netflix and Amazon are investing over 8 billion USD in content, the share of sport rights exploited/monetised via OTT only is still way below 1 billion USD. A significant growth of investments into OTT-sports services is obvious.

    We are experts in building OTT-propositions, client- and subscription models in several markets in CEE. We understand the right values and approach how to build, launch and monetize an OTT-service from scratch.

    SPORTS STRATEGY & MEDIA RIGHTS TENDERS FOR RIGHTS HOLDERS

    There is a wide variety of sports content globally. Competition for budgets is harder than ever – at the same time there seem to be more opportunities than ever. We will make sure you get your fair share of investment out of the global media markets for your media rights, so you can make sure to build a robust revenue stream to ensure financing for your organisation or event.

    SN1 Consulting knows and understands the media landscape and also agency business inside out and is your 360° partner. Whether you want to structure your inventory, create new products or need packaging strategies, intend to run global tender processes including related legal advisory – SN1 Consulting team of experts are your competent advisors.

    Our main objective is to let our clients shine. We usually act as in-house consultants for rights holders, performing our services in a completely discreet and silent manner.
