In December 2012 LDC acquired a significant stake in Blue Rubicon.
The deal was to enable the agency to invest in new talent, further strengthen services, respond to client demand for broader capabilities in the UK and expand its footprint in key international markets.
In 2015, LDC exited its investment in Blue Rubicon in a sale to international consulting firm Teneo Holdings for an undisclosed sum.
Since LDC's original investment, Blue Rubicon opened offices in Qatar, Dubai and Singapore, and completed the acquisitions of research firm Hesleden Partners and Open Road a London-based public affairs communications agency.
Fee income over the last three years has increased 59% while headcount grew from 130 (2012)to 225 (2015).
Teneo is a US-headquartered international consulting firm which employs over 275 people across 12 offices around the world including in London and Dubai.
It said the acquisition of Blue Rubicon was the ideal fit, giving it presence in the strategically important UK market, while providing Blue Rubicon’s clients access to additional communications services and geographies.
