Magazines. London-based tech consulting firm Panoply Holdings, which IPOd in 2018, has acquired the quarterly technology magazine and events brand D/SRUPTION which is said to “target at senior management involved in digital transformation”. It’s a slightly odd sounding transaction that involves an initial consideration of £50k in shares and an earn-out capped at – £3.6m. Neither D/SRUPTION (based in Leeds) which seems not to have been part of any registered UK company, nor Panoply have reported the transaction on their respective websites. The driving force behind Panoply is serial techie Neal Gandhi and the chair is Mark Smith, former finance director of UK-based marketing services companies Chime and Bell Pottinger.
