7 Mile Advisors Advises Uniguest, an Atlantic Street Capital portfolio company, on Fourth Acquisition
CHARLOTTE, NC – Uniguest, a global leader in digital engagement technology to multiple end markets, has acquired Planet eStream, a unified video platform provider for the education sector. The acquisition of more than 4 million users across 550+ locations will increase Uniguest’s footprint in the education industry while adding breadth to its already robust digital signage and video capabilities. Located in West Yorkshire, UK, Planet eStream will align under the UK-headquartered Tripleplay IPTV and digital signage division of Uniguest.
7 Mile Advisors was pleased to act as the buyside advisor to Uniguest and Atlantic Street Capital through the acquisition of Planet eStream. This marks the fourth transaction 7 Mile has facilitated for Uniguest, having previously advised on their acquisition of Tripleplay, Touchtown, and ONELAN.
“Uniguest continues to deepen their capabilities as the leading digital engagement technology provider to hotels, corporations, universities, stadiums, and many more end markets. The acquisition of Planet eStream and their impressive unified video platform used by secondary schools, colleges, and universities is an exciting addition to Uniguest’s growing footprint in the education industry. It’s been a pleasure to work with the team at Uniguest and Atlantic Street Capital in what we view as a valued partnership dating back to 2017. We look forward to seeing what the combined forces of Uniguest and Planet eStream will accomplish in the future,” commented Tim Frye, Managing Director at 7 Mile Advisors.
Planet eStream is a unified video platform used primarily by secondary schools, colleges, and universities to create, manage, and deliver content and digital learning resources to their students and staff. Features include video on demand, live streaming, lecture/classroom capture, digital signage, and image management. This comprehensive and flexible toolset means that Planet eStream can be tailored to fit an organization’s particular needs.
“Planet eStream is an excellent addition to the Uniguest family of brands. Digital engagement in education is growing at an exponential rate, and we are excited to offer new and existing customers a solution with such a wide range of capabilities. As we integrate Planet eStream into our Tripleplay division, we will explore opportunities to extend a number of its enterprise video and digital signage capabilities across other end markets and territories,” commented Jeff Hiscox, Uniguest CEO.
