Moonpig walks off with M&A prize after its sale to Photobox

The Capitalist can sense a congratulations card coming on.

Moonpig scored a triumph at the recent Vitesse Media M&A awards as its sale qualified it for the Large Company Deal of the Year.

The online greetings card business won the award after its £120m sale to Photobox. While the judging panel commended company founder Nick Jenkins for his role in developing the company into a highly profitable business, the successful entrepreneur was sadly not present to receive both the compliments and the award.

Moonpig joined other winners such as CEO of Digital Barriers Tom Black, who clinched Dealmaker of the Year, and Intrinsic Technology, which was named as Buyout of the Year.
