Nortal merges with leading Northern European marketing automation company Element
Nortal merges through share swap with Swedish company Element, which is the leading B2B marketing technology and sales strategy company in Northern Europe. The merger marks a brand new service offering in Nortal’s portfolio – Revenue Science.
According to Nortal CEO Priit Alamäe, the merger is part of Nortal Group’s strategic plan of further developing the company’s offering – Nortal Concepts. “With Element, we share the belief that meaningful impact can only be delivered through a combination of strategy, technology and change. Together we are creating a new concept – Revenue Science, where we are now a European leader for the full value chain of demand generation, revenue management and online presence – from strategy and process definition to implementation and integrations,” Alamäe said.
Alamäe added that while the merger marks the expansion of Nortal’s offering to Sweden, it also means the expansion of Element’s service offering to Baltics, Finland, Germany and Gulf region, where Nortal already has a growing presence.
Through the merger, Nortal acquires all shares of Element AB. Element AB shareholders – management and employees of the company – will join the ranks of Nortal’s shareholders, alongside the existing 34 shareholders who are all Nortal’s employees. Element CEO Jonas Ander will strengthen Nortal’s management as new Chief Marketing Officer.
“Strategy, technology and marketing are converging disciplines, the common denominator being big data. Big data is a fundamental consequence of the digital marketing landscape. Nortal, being a thought leader in the field, is the partner we have been looking for to be able to deliver predictive marketing analytics, sustainable change and impact to our clients,” Ander explicates.
The merger transaction value is confidential pursuant to the parties’ agreement. Element financials will be consolidated into Nortal’s financial results from October 2016, bringing the group’s total estimated revenue to 50 million euros in 2017. Nortal was advised by law firm Derling in the transaction.
