The acquisition of Bounty.com is expected to complement Kabooseâ€™s other sites like BabyZone, ParentZone, AmazingMoms and TwoPeasInABucket.
Hopefully, this will give the Toronto-based company a better fighting chance against established players in the family-friendly demographic like Nickelodeon, Walt Disney, and J&Jâ€™s BabyCenter.
However, both parties declined to deal with the media until the equity-refinancing deal for $115 million is completed.
Why $140 million? Bounty.com is not only the largest parenting club in the UK with 2.4 million members but also the largest database of young families in Europe. Not to mention its strong partnerships with leading multinational companies like P&G, Unilever, J&J, and Kimberly-Clark.
