Acquisitive agency swoops for Wakefield firm

A digital firm with offices in Wetherby and Harrogate has acquired Wakefield-headquartered Statement, a fast-growing Shopify agency.

IDHL has a group of agencies and the latest acquisition comes less than a year after snapping up Pinpoint Designs. Statement specialise in Shopify Plus. A top UK Shopify Plus partner, Statement help ambitious retailers grow using the power of Shopify and their innate eCommerce expertise.

Strengthening IDHL’s eCommerce offering, Statement’s Shopify Plus expertise extends the range of web development platforms available to an ever-growing client pool, bringing even further choice.

Managing Director Dan Conboy, who will continue with Statement alongside his team of 12, said “We’re delighted to be part of the IDHL Group. We will now be better positioned with the resource behind us to build upon our current scale and achieve ambitions during this time of rapid growth as Shopify’s UK presence grows.”

IDHL CEO, Dennis Engel, said: “Welcoming Statement to the Group, the addition of Shopify enhances the Group’s eCommerce offering providing platform choice to better meet each client’s individual needs. As a specialist in Shopify Plus, there’s client synergy between Statement and our search agencies, WMG and Ingenuity Digital, which in itself bring even greater opportunity for the Group.”

The acquisition was supported by Squires Patton Boggs for legal advice alongside Grant Thornton Leeds, who completed due diligence.
