Represented Parking Reservation Company Through Asset Sale
SpotHero, a parking reservation company, hired Dinsmore to support its new partnership with ParkHub, a leading B2B parking technology provider. Partnering with ParkHub enabled SpotHero to grow its current network of premium parking facilities by adding hundreds of new venues, growing our client’s stature as one of the largest parking mobility platforms in North America. The primary deal structure of the partnership was an asset sale from SpotHero to ParkHub, but there were other unique aspects of the transaction, including the creation of an alliance between the parties involving concerted efforts on booking and parking site prospecting and shared revenues. Our role included shepherding our client through the rigorous negotiations process and working diligently to close the transaction, while also protecting our client’s best interests and business vision moving forward.
