“We are extremely pleased to announce Miss Group’s second acquisition of the year in such quick succession to our first – Spanish web hosting business, Sered, which joined the Group earlier in January. We’re focused on accelerating our successful buy-and-build acquisition strategy in 2023, adding ambitious businesses that share the group’s values on delivering excellent service to customers, as well as expanding our footprint in attractive global markets,” said Mattias Kaneteg, Founder and Head of M&A at Miss Group.
“We are happy to become part of a group that shares our passion for excellent customer care and continuous service improvement. We are confident that this combination will further enhance the experience and offering to our current and future customers,” said Finn Krøvel, Founder and CEO of Domene.
“Domene is an important acquisition for Miss Group; the business is well established in Norway, and we are particularly excited to bring yet another Nordic-based business into our fold. Domene’s customers will benefit from access to Miss Group’s global suite of products and services, and we look forward to accelerating growth across the Domene business by leveraging the operating platform that we have established across the Nordic region,” said Fredrik Björklund, co-Founder and CEO of Miss Group.

We are delighted with the acquisition by Miss Group of Domene in Norway, further solidifying the company’s strong foothold in the Nordics which includes successful brands such as Hemsida24 in Sweden, as well as Domainkeskus and Seravo in Finland. We look forward to sustained growth at Miss Group, underpinned by both the team’s outstanding track record of delivery and execution, and our continued support,” said Mark Blower, Partner at Perwyn and Miss Group board member.
