Fast growing international web hosting company, Miss Group, has completed the acquisition of one of Switzerland’s leading web hosting providers, Webland.
Founded in 1998 and headquartered in Münchenstein, Switzerland, Webland is a pioneer in the Swiss hosting market. The company manages 75,000 domains at high performance data centres located in Basel and Münchenstein.
The acquisition of Webland is the fifth to be completed by Miss Group in 2021, as part of its ongoing buy-and-build strategy, which will strengthen revenue and EBITDA growth for the Group in the Swiss market. Translink acted as strategic and financial advisor in all five Miss Group’s acquisitions in 2021.
Mattias Kaneteg, founder and CEO of Miss Group says: “Webland has an established presence in the Swiss market and demonstrated robust and advanced technical experience and exemplary service provision to its customers. This experience, coupled with the company’s impressive commercial performance, made it an attractive acquisition to add to Miss Group’s portfolio.
Growing Miss Group’s presence in Switzerland and surrounding regions is a key part of our ongoing international growth and follows the launch of Hostek Sverige earlier this month to support our enterprise hosting customers across the Nordics. The acquisition will cement Miss Group’s position as a market leader in Switzerland, providing best-in-class hosting, domain and other web services to SME businesses across the country.”
Sebastian Süllmann, Analyst, Translink Sweden says: “Webland is our sixteenth successful deal for Miss Group and our first in Switzerland. We are happy to continue to collaborate with Miss Group and are proud to see that our work helps to expand Miss Group’s presence into new markets.
This deal establishes our international scope and our ability to conduct successful deals in close collaboration with our Swiss colleagues.”
