MEETIC (MEET - FR0004063097), the European leader in online dating, today announced that it has signed an Agreement for the acquisition of the assets of e-kontakt, owned by Intodate International AB.
Founded in 2005 and headquartered in Norrköping in Sweden, e-kontakt has been one of the leaders on the Nordic scene for online dating, offering its service with high quality to a large customer base. Meetic is only acquiring the assets relative to the brand, the domain names and the user base, via its Swedish subsidiary Match.com Nordic AB, for an undisclosed sum.
Alexandre Lubot, CEO of MEETIC Group, says: “In March we acquired Spraydate, founded 12 years ago and considered as the pioneer of the Swedish Online dating scene. The e-kontakt acquisition will further consolidate the MEETIC Group’s leadership position in Sweden, where we run our online dating services under the Match.com brand name. We know from experience that operational synergies will be rapidly achieved, and will notably allow e-kontakt’s users to be provided with the MEETIC Group’s quality of service and greater chances to meet the people they are looking for.”
