UK's "top independent video production company" acquired by Leeds and London comms agency

A Leeds and London communications group has announced its acquisition of a B2B agency and film firm ranked the UK’s top independent video production company.

Definition, a strategic communications group, has confirmed its third acquisition of the year, bringing London growth agency TopLine Comms into its portfolio, as well as its subsidiary TopLine Film.

The deal, which is Definition’s third in seven months, adds SEO and inbound marketing capabilities along with video and animation content production to the group’s InsideOut Communications delivery model.

TopLine Film was rated the UK’s top independent video production company by customers in 2020.

Nigel Howes, chairman of Definition, said: “The TopLine acquisition is an important next step in our ongoing growth strategy.

“It brings together two of the UK’s foremost B2B agencies - both leaders in their specific fields of reputation management and search-centric PR - to form the ultimate B2B growth agency and position it as one of the top 3 in the UK.

“The acquisition also broadens and deepens our sector and service coverage – adding fintech and engineering specialisms to our existing expertise in business and professional services, technology, education, transportation, health & wellness, financial services and the public sector.”

Heather Baker, CEO of TopLine said: “Of all the agencies we’ve talked to, Definition stood out because its ambition, culture and values closely matched our own. It also had a clear and well-articulated growth strategy that offers excellent prospects for our business and our team.

“We’re incredibly excited about the opportunities to offer an expanded range of services to our clients and for working together with the other group agencies to deliver accelerated growth.”
