    GoDaddy Acquires Host Europe Group for $1.79 Billion

    December 6, 2016

    GoDaddy has made a huge bet in expanding its international presence Tuesday with the acquisition of Host Europe Group for €1.69 billion (US$1.79 billion), which will give it a strong footprint in the U.K. and Germany.

    The transaction is expected to close in the second quarter of 2017, according to GoDaddy. The purchase price represents 11x HEG’s 2016 estimated adjusted EBITDA including “anticipated annual synergies.”

    HEG, which is currently owned by private equity firm Cinven, started shopping for buyers earlier this year. Within recent weeks GoDaddy emerged as the most likely candidate as other rumored buyers dropped out of the bidding. (United Internet was acquired, and Deutsche Telekom dropped out of the bidding for HEG citing a lack of organic growth prospects and possible integration challenges.)

    GoDaddy plans to integrate the majority of HEG’s business while it explores strategic alternatives for HEG’s PlusServer managed hosting business, including a possible sale, GoDaddy said.

    The acquisition of HEG will help GoDaddy extend its small business focus in the European market. HEG has more than 1.7 million customers across its brands including 123Reg, Domain Factory, Heart Internet and Host Europe. HEG also owns the World Hosting Day and NamesCon brands and conferences. GoDaddy plans to continue to operate those brands independently.

    “GoDaddy has successfully expanded its international business to 56 global markets over the past four years,” GoDaddy CEO Blake Irving said in a statement. “HEG has built an impressive business that generates strong top-line growth, high margins, and industry-leading customer satisfaction. By joining forces with HEG, we accelerate our expansion into Europe with the delivery of a broader range of cloud-based products, built on a single global technology platform, and supported by unparalleled customer care to help small businesses and web designers succeed online.”

    GoDaddy’s international revenue grew by 27 percent in Q3 2016, representing a huge opportunity for the SMB-focused hosting and domains provider.

    “The acquisition of Host Europe Group signals GoDaddy’s prioritization of growth in markets outside the US and gives it a solid foothold in two of Europe’s biggest markets: Germany and the U.K.,” Philbert Shih, managing director of Structure Research told The WHIR. “The SMB-focused hosting market continues to mature and with maturity comes the need to access new market opportunities. Extending geographical scope is one obvious way of doing this and GoDaddy has decided to try and accelerate that through M&A.”

    HEG Group CEO Patrick Pulvermüller will lead the company’s combined European operations, and report to Andrew Low Ah Kee, GoDaddy’s Executive Vice President of International.

    “In combining with GoDaddy, we see a remarkable opportunity for our customers, partners and the small business ecosystem in Europe,” Pulvermüller said. “What stands out is the strategic alignment of the companies – we’re both driven to empower people to transform their ideas and bring them to life online. Together GoDaddy and HEG will provide even more value for our customers and introduce new solutions to help their ventures succeed.”

    HEG has offices in Germany, the U.K., France, Spain, Romania, and Bulgaria.

    GoDaddy to Buy Host Europe Group

    Acquisition expected to help accelerate GoDaddy’s international expansion

    Don Clark
    Dec. 6, 2016

    GoDaddy Inc. announced its largest-ever acquisition, a deal to buy Host Europe Group and combine the two companies’ internet-services businesses to help accelerate GoDaddy’s international expansion.

    The Arizona-based vendor of website services on Tuesday said it would pay €605 million (about $641 million) to HEG’s owner—private-equity firm Cinven—and assume net debt of €1.08 billion.

    HEG, a London-based company with similar offerings, comes with about 1.7 million customers, most of them in Germany and the U.K. GoDaddy Chief Executive Blake Irving said HEG—like his company—is extremely attentive to the web needs of small businesses. “They are completely aligned with what we are doing,” he said.

    GoDaddy, which is 19 years old, built its business by supplying internet domain names—a business promoted through racy Super Bowl ads and celebrities like race driver Danica Patrick. It has branched out into related online services for small businesses, including hosting their websites, offering customized email address and website-creation tools.

    Some of the changes were pushed by Mr. Irving, who joined GoDaddy in 2013 after stints at Microsoft Corp. and Yahoo Inc., where he served as executive vice president and chief product officer. He led GoDaddy’s initial public offering in April 2015; the company’s stock has risen more than 70% above its IPO price. The stock traded closed at $34.74 on Monday, up 4%.

    GoDaddy reported in November that revenue rose 15% to $472.1 million in the third quarter. It already operates in Europe, including Germany and the U.K., but matching HEG’s presence in those countries “would take us over five years,” Mr. Irving said.

    HEG was purchased in 2013 by Cinven for about £438 million (about $678.9 million). The company, which also sells domain names and hosts websites, has grown lately through a series of acquisitions. It has nine data centers and serves customers in Europe from offices in the U.K., Germany, France, Spain and Romania.

    HEG is on track in 2016 to generate approximately $328 million in bookings and $139 million in earnings excluding interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, GoDaddy said.

    GoDaddy said financing for the transaction has been committed by its existing lenders at interest rates similar to the company’s existing term loan.

    Mr. Irving said GoDaddy talked to HEG in 2013 about a potential acquisition but concluded that his company’s technology and operations weren’t ready. Now, he said, GoDaddy should be able to take over operation of HEG’s services as well as its own.

    GoDaddy prides itself on its telephone customer support, not only to tackle technical problems but also to suggest additional services for customers to buy, Mr. Irving said. HEG also has a strong service operation, he said, and it could benefit by adding a sales element.

    HEG Chief Executive Patrick Pulvermüller will lead the combined company’s European operations. GoDaddy said it plans to explore options such as a sale for HEG’s PlusServer business, which serves larger companies through a direct sales force. GoDaddy and HEG mainly use direct sales over the web to reach small businesses.

    GoDaddy said the deal, subject to customary regulatory requirements, is expected to close in the second quarter of 2017.

    Reuters reported last month that GoDaddy was in exclusive talks to buy HEG.
