Our Case Studies DataLase Miracl The Brief DataLase is a UK-based developer of colour change materials for inline digital printing of products and packaging. We were tasked with identifying licensees and strategic partners in Japan for its ground-breaking laser coding printing technology and pigment. The Approach We engaged with leading Japanese manufacturers and suppliers to understand the level of opportunity. We quickly identified SATO, a provider of Auto-ID solutions in the Japanese and global markets, as a leading partner candidate. We supported Datalase in developing its relationship with SATO and, following a series of meetings, were able to secure a decision by SATO to invest in Datalase. We then shifted our focus to support Datalase in defining and negotiating the key terms of the partnership. The Result Datalase secured an investment from SATO which resulted in a 7-figure injection of cash and the formation of a joint venture which was granted exclusive sales rights for the Datalase technology in Japan and the APAC region. SATO subsequently went on to acquire DataLase outright. The Brief Miracl (then CertiVox), a UK innovator in authentication and encryption solutions, was looking to raise funding to accelerate the development of its M-PIN Strong Authentication Platform. Together with the UKTI's venture capital unit, Miracl tasked Intralink with identifying potential strategic investors in Asia. The Approach We drew up a long list of potential corporate and financial investors, and prepared and localised the Information Memorandum. Through a series of calls and meetings, we presented the value proposition to the potential investors and reduced the long list to a short list of interested candidates. We then arranged for Miracl executives to visit Asia and meet directly with the potential investors. The Result The result was that NTT DOCOMO Ventures, the venture capital arm of Japan’s leading mobile service provider, agreed to join forces with Octopus Investments and invest $8M of Series B funding. Miracl was able to go on to establish a Japan office as an underpin to growing its business in the region. "For entry into the Chinese market, look before you leap. Use Intralink as your binoculars."
