The merger will accelerate S4Capital’s transition into a technology and innovation firm, powered by the combination of art and science. As an innovation and engineering partner to the Global 1000, TheoremOne will play a critical role in this evolution.

As a result of the combination, TheoremOne will now have access to dozens of new capabilities including those in the media, content, data, and analytics verticals. The merger with S4Capital brings unique and innovative agencies into TheoremOne’s orbit including Media.Monks — a leader in branded digital experiences, content, and marketing data.

“We wanted a partner that could serve both as an accelerant for our growth and that was passionate about helping us disrupt the technology consulting ecosystem — joining forces with Media.Monks and S4Capital means we’ll be taking the field with some of the best talent in the world,” said Brady Brim-DeForest, CEO of TheoremOne. “The entrepreneurial, growth-focused culture at S4Capital is one where I’m confident our team will feel right at home.”

S4Capital plc (SFOR.L) is the tech-led, new age/new era digital advertising and marketing services company, established by Sir Martin Sorrell in May 2018. Its strategy is to build a purely digital advertising and marketing services business for global, multinational, regional, and local clients, as well as millennial-driven influencer brands. This will be achieved by integrating leading businesses in three practice areas: Content, Data&digital media, and Technology services, along with an emphasis on "faster, better, cheaper" executions in an always-on consumer-led environment, with a unitary structure.

Sir Martin Sorrell, S4Capital Executive Chairman said, “With the intersection of Marketing, Sales, and Information Technology continuing to be a key topic for brands and all C-suite executives, we at S4Capital are building a genuinely integrated offer for our clients comprising best-in-class technology services combined with content and data&digital media expertise. We are delighted to welcome Brady, Will, David, and their colleagues – their vision and ambition will no doubt be a great fit for us.”

TheoremOne will continue to operate autonomously and its leadership team will maintain operational control. Brim-DeForest will continue to serve as CEO, founder William Jessup as Head of Services, and David Kullmann as Head of Staffing and Embedded Teams. TheoremOne leadership will report directly to S4Capital’s Executive Committee with a broad mandate to continue to build its world-class capabilities and client base.

“We are thrilled to embark on the next phase of TheoremOne’s growth and development with our partners at Media.Monks and S4Capital,” said Will Jessup, TheoremOne Founder and Head of Services.

“We are excited to share our vision of disrupting the traditional consulting model with Media.Monks and S4Capital. Together, we will leverage TheoremOne’s capabilities to drive technology-enabled enterprise transformation. This unique merger will deliver exponential value to our joint client portfolio and beyond,” said David Kullmann, TheoremOne Partner and Head of Staffing Services.

Its strategy is to build a purely digital advertising and marketing services business for global, multinational, regional, local clients, and millennial-driven influencer brands.

Digital is by far the fastest-growing segment of the advertising market. S4Capital estimates that in 2021 digital accounted for over 60% (for the first time) or $400-450 billion of total global advertising spend of $680-700 billion (excluding over $500 billion of trade promotion marketing, the primary target of the Amazon advertising platform) and projects that by 2025 total global advertising spend will expand to $975 billion and digital's share will grow to approximately 70%, accelerated by the impact of covid-19. In fact, 97% of the projected growth in Advertising spend between 2021 and 2025 will come from Digital. Global spend on Digital Transformation (the primary addressable market for Technology Services) is growing at 21% CAGR and projected to be $879bn by 2025.
