The acquisition of Motherswork signifies a pivotal moment for The Parentinc as it positions itself firmly on the trajectory towards an initial public offering by bolstering its commitment to building a self-sustaining content, community, and commerce ecosystem for parents in SEA. While The Parentinc has established remarkable success online, Motherswork will play a pivotal role in expanding the company’s offline presence by opening up more Motherswork stores in key markets in the region, including Vietnam, where Mama’s Choice will be distributed exclusively by Motherswork.

Roshni Mahtani Cheung, Group CEO and Founder of The Parentinc, shares her enthusiasm about the acquisition, stating, “While we have done a dramatic job of capturing the hearts and minds of the online market, 70% of retail in SEA is still predominantly done through offline. That’s why we are very excited to have our own brand stores through this acquisition as it will further refine our content to community to commerce business model, which not many companies have pulled off successfully. We aim to be among those successful few. We are also equally enthusiastic to bring our offering of media solutions to all of the partners at Motherswork, aiming to improve the lives of mums and help them raise happy, healthy, and confident kids.”

Sharon Wong, Founder and CEO of Motherswork, echoes the same sentiment: “Motherswork is a well-established brand for premium mother, baby, and kids’ products in Singapore and China. This acquisition will enable Motherswork to expand its footprint into the other countries in Southeast Asia through The Parentinc. I certainly look forward to the combined synergies of our two organisations which will enable the Group to scale to greater heights.”

The strategic move will demonstrate The Parentinc’s commitment to charting a path towards sustained growth and market leadership in the ever-evolving parenting landscape, and aligns with the recent high-profile IPOs within the mother and baby sector. As Mamaearth’s current IPO valuation is set at US$1.2 billion, and FirstCry, which filed for IPO in December 2023, is anticipated to set its valuation between US$3.5 billion to US$3.75 billion, the acquisition of Motherswork by The Parentinc sets the stage for a dynamic blend of online and offline retail expertise, promising a bright future for both entities and the parenting industry they serve.
