Headland Media

Headland Media is a leading B2B media content provider

Headland Media provides commercially licensed news, music, TV and move entertainment content for a wide rang of industries, including maritime, retail and hotels through multiple proprietary distribution channels.

Oakley acquired Headland Media from BSkyB in January 2008 at an enterprise value of £4.0m. During our ownership, we provided additional funding to enable the business to consolidate its market leading position through four bolt-on acquisitions and rationalised the cost base by consolidating Headland’s multi-site operations.

In May 2013, we sold the business to KVH Industries Inc. at an enterprise value of £15.5m, generating a 2.7x return and 28% IRR.
