Ports Group makes its third acquisition this year by taking over Inbrand AB
Ports Group AB continues to pursue its strategic growth agenda and completes yet another acquisition, the successful Inbrand AB. Earlier in 2022 Ports Group acquired Otmore Limited and Corebiz Solutions, and together with Inbrand these new additions strengthen Ports Group's position as the leading Nordic player and provider of platform-based IP and domain services.
- Ports Group has a strong ambition to continue to drive strong and profitable growth. The acquisition of Inbrand is another valuable addition, and we have once again shown proof of our ability to implement and act on our plan,” says Magdalena Bonde, CEO of Ports Group.
- It makes sense and feels great that Ports Group have acquired Inbrand. We are very happy as it means that our clients gain access to a greater range of services as well as expertise within Brand Protection, and on top of that they get to work with the market's best platform when it comes to brand security, says Joel Malmborg, CEO for Inbrand AB
Strengthened position in the Nordic region with the aim of becoming Europe's leading provider
Through acquisitions in 2022, Ports Group has strengthened its customer base as well as broadened its expertise and in-house capacity. The acquisitions have given Ports Group the ability to increase scalability and they are now equipped for the next step, to extend across Europe. Central to this strategy is continued organic and acquisition-based growth.
- We have the leading position in the Nordic market and are therefore a natural acquisition leader and an attractive partner to merge with. Our vision is to become Europe's largest provider in this segment, and we are now another step closer to that goal, says Magdalena in conclusion.
The parties have chosen not to disclose the purchase price. EY Corporate Finance has acted as financial advisor and Setterwalls Advokatbyrå (Law firm) legal advisor to Ports Group in the transaction.
