With the addition of Peakmedia to our subsidiary portfolio, we’re adding significant market presence to open up new opportunities across DACH, but also in Southern and Eastern Europe and the Balkans where Peakmedia has existing customers. Peakmedia also comes with an attractive customer portfolio where we will align on collaborative growth and expansion initiatives over time.
