Oppenheimer & Co. Inc. Acted as Exclusive Financial Advisor to CreativeLive Inc. on its sale to Fiverr Inc. (NYSE: FVRR)
Oppenheimer is proud to have acted as exclusive Financial Advisor to CreativeLive Inc. on its sale to Fiverr Inc. (NYSE: FVRR). Having served as an underwriter for Fiverr’s 2019 IPO, we are thrilled to have initiated conversations between Creative Live and Fiverr as they enhance Fiverr’s mission to support the entire freelance lifestyle through professional education and training. Fiverr’s current online learning platform, Fiverr Learn, will be folded into CreativeLive as both teams work to expand following the acquisition. With Fiverr’s global audience and capital, plus Creative Live’s course catalog and efficient content production capability, we expect to see the emergence of a market-leading solution that benefits all constituents of Fiverr’s marketplace.
