Luminii are delighted to have provided Commercial Due Diligence (CDD) support to Maven on their investment into Membr, provider of a CRM and fitness SaaS platform.

Fit Cloud Technology Ltd, trading as Membr, a fitness focused management software platform that operates in 23 countries worldwide has secured significant investment from NPIF – Maven Equity Finance, managed by Maven and part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund, to fuel the next phase of its global expansion.

Membr is a full function cloud-based fitness software solution that has produced a simple and efficient digital platform that allows gym owners to manage their members whilst their personal training staff can actively support customers on their fitness journey.

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, fitness clubs across the globe were forced to close their doors overnight. The fitness industry reacted by delivering virtual experiences which has resulted in consumers learning how to absorb fitness content digitally. This has led to an increased demand for fitness clubs to operate a hybrid model of providing facilities for members to work out along with enhancing customer engagement through the use of digital content. Membr’s fully developed CRM and fitness SaaS platform has enabled its customers to overcome this change in the market dynamics.

"Luminii Consulting is delighted to have supported Maven on this transaction. This is yet another deal that helps to further strengthen our credentials in the technology, media and telecom (TMT) sectors, particularly in SaaS. Having completed over 40 projects in SaaS, Luminii is certainly building a strong reputation as a go to provider for strategy and commercial due diligence in the TMT space. We wish Maven and Membr's management team continued success for the future." - Lushani Kodituwakku, Managing Director, Luminii Consulting

  • To date, Lushani and her team have supported me and Foresight on over 20 deals. They have consistently delivered high quality CDD reports, always against tight deadlines and to above expectation. They offer good value for money. Luminii are quick to understand our needs, offer sound advice and support on complex topics. Their ability to tailor the scope to our needs, focus on the core issues of each project and not being afraid to give their opinion backed by sound research and analysis is a great benefit to us. I would recommend their services without hesitation.

  • We engaged Luminii Consulting for a very targeted piece of commercial diligence in a very short timeframe.

Moreover they managed to produce it in a very short period of time which was essential to getting the deal done.

  • Luminii supported the recent MBO with Foresight Group and Signature Property Finance (SPF), providing strategic insight which has enabled the management team to transform their route to market. The CDD report gives SPF valuable intelligence into the competition; market trends; customer feedback and the opportunities that are within the marketplace. The report has been useful to segment data, share customer feedback with the wider SPF team, enabling them to attack the competition and continue to deliver a quality service to brokers/direct clients. Overall, a really insightful report that gives the Management team really useful intelligence.
