Periculum Capital Company, LLC (“Periculum”) is pleased to announce it advised LUNA Language Services (“LUNA” or the “Company”), an Indianapolis-based provider of interpretation, translation, and language training services, in its sale to GLOBO Language Solutions, LLC (“GLOBO”).
Periculum ran a customized sell-side process focused on finding the right partner to preserve the unique LUNA culture and propel the highly recognized brand into its next growth phase.
LUNA is one of the largest privately owned language service companies in the U.S. driven by its critical purpose of ensuring language access is a right afforded to all people. Led by the dynamic husband-and-wife team of Chris and Marina Waters, the Company consistently achieved double-digit annual revenue growth throughout its 20+ year history, solidifying itself as a leader and pioneer in the highly fragmented language services industry.
Periculum was engaged to manage a targeted sell-side process that emphasized both fit and value. The team crafted a curated buyers list, positioning the Company as a mission-driven community leader and differentiated language service provider with noteworthy nationwide brand equity that both strategic and financial buyers could leverage as a platform for growth. As a result of Periculum’s continuous and intimate collaboration with management, the Company was able to find a partner in GLOBO that not only aligned with LUNA’s people-first culture, but also complemented its existing services to increase efficiencies and ultimately enhance LUNA’s mission to promote language access to all people.
“Working with Periculum, and specifically with Zainab Bass and Bob Shortle, provided us a compass and navigator on a journey we would not want to travel alone,” said Marina Hadjioannou Waters, President of LUNA. “We couldn’t be happier with the outcome that resulted from the thoughtful and intentional marketing strategy developed by the Periculum team.”
