Mesmo Deal Update

An update on a great deal

Mesmo is a deal I mentioned before.  I did it around the same time I did Tapulous.  Davin was a guy doing a bit of advisory work for MerchantCircle when he founded it.  I did it with Maples, Senkut, Stevens and a number of others I have invested with a few times.

They pulled off a remarkable pivot and I still remember sitting in a meeting where they asked for some money to pull it off and a group of guys lead by Senkut and Maples gave them half what they asked for.

They pulled off an great exit to Game Show Network about 6 months later and went to cash flow positive almost immediately.

I have a change to catch with with Davin today.  Less than a year in, this looks like one of the best pieces of value creation via M&A; ever.
