Catena Media - Delilah Holding

Catena Media continues to strengthen its position as Europe’s fastest growing lead generation company through the acquisition of Delilah Holdings’ affiliate assets.

 

MrGamez.net and Spielekiste.de (Delilah Holding) are casino affiliate websites, focused on the German-language casino sites. The business was launched in 2011 with the aim to provide the latest and best offers to German speaking casino players. The main markets are Germany and Switzerland, with both markets showing solid underlying growth.

The acquired assets are expected to generate quarterly sales of about EUR 300.000 with an operating margin of around 80 percent.

The transfer of the assets and payment is scheduled to take place no later than end of June 2017. The purchase price amounts to an upfront payment of EUR 4.200.000, which is being paid as a cash consideration in conjunction with the transfer of the assets. In addition, there is an earn-out of maximum EUR 2.250.000, which is based on revenue performance over a period of 12 months. In a reasonably expected scenario with a total earn-out purchase price of around EUR 1.350.000, the seller needs to generate revenue growth of around 30 percent during the period.

The acquisition of MrGamez.net and Spielekiste.de will broaden our German presence and provide further growth in German-speaking markets. With this acquisition we are further strengthening our pan-European portfolio”, says Robert Andersson, CEO of Catena Media.

PartnerMatrix and SlotsCalendar sign partnership to raise security awareness

 

Affiliate marketing software provider, PartnerMatrix, and SlotsCalendar, the IMDb of online slots, have just signed a partnership, raising awareness about the tools operators and affiliates can use to create a more secure environment.

PartnerMatrix and SlotsCalendar will launch various marketing initiatives, covering topics such as security in affiliate marketing, player orientation in affiliate marketing, the latest tools and techniques in enlarging affiliate presence, and more. The partnership will allow both teams to initiate marketing campaigns, reach new audiences and promote affiliate solutions.

Levon Nikoghosyan, CEO of PartnerMatrix, says: “This partnership holds great importance because it allows us to raise awareness of important topics. We remember how SlotsCalendar entered the market a few years ago and seeing the company reaching such high ranks in affiliate marketing is very motivating. The SlotsCalendar team continues putting tremendous efforts into creating a robust network of iGaming enthusiasts and business representatives, and thanks to this, they have a bright future ahead of them.

“However, SlotsCalendar doesn’t hold interest only for players- many big casino operators and B2B companies are very interested in appearing in the SlotsCalendar’s directories. For PartnerMatrix, this is an excellent chance to create a dialogue within a quality audience and promote our tools and solutions to a bigger audience.”

Viorel Stan, CEO of SlotsCalendar, comments: “The lack of active dialogue on specific topics has led to the vulnerability of some niches. We deal with numerous risks daily, and as soon as we figure out how to deal with some challenges and get used to them, other issues appear. Our partnership with PartnerMatrix will create a more dynamic platform for solving problems related to security, payments, transparency in doing business.

“We will continue to raise important topics and share the experiences of both of our companies. I am sure that our cooperation will bear fruit not only for both of our companies but also for many other industry players.”
