INVESTING IN MEDIA COMPANIES

Welcome to the Writtle investor centre

Writtle invests in media and marketing services businesses with the aim of creating a substantial international marketing group.

Writtle’s companies operate from the UK, US, India and Hong Kong providing international clients with award-winning business communications, design, packaging and retail marketing services.

In July 2011 Writtle doubled in size when it acquired Loewy Group,  bringing together Loewy’s agencies, which included Epoch Design, Seymourpowell, The Team and Williams Murray Hamm with Writtle’s  businesses, which comprised 20.20, Arken, Beyond Communications, Creo Retail Marketing, Magnet Harlequin, MagLabs and Technik. Subsequent years have seen turnover grow towards £100m with 2013 pre-tax profits in excess of £5m.

Each of the companies operates independently, and is led by their own experienced management team with a Writtle director on the each board, Writtle providing both the funding and business experience to underpin sustainable and profitable growth.

Writtle’s philosophy is to create motivational equity structures in its companies. Management teams enjoy the sense of ownership and incentive associated with significant minority shareholdings in their companies. In addition they are granted share options in the group as a whole, to promote cooperative opportunities and referrals from which all stakeholders benefit.
