Valentin&Byhr Group acquires digital agency Zooma

December 5, 2014 - Arena Media, owners of the Valentin&Byhr Group acquires the online marketing agency Zooma from Semcon, thus enhancing the group offer within digital and online communication.

This is an acquisition that adds even more excellence to the V&B Group offer within online and digital marketing. The advertising agency Valentin&Byhr, the event marketing agency Fusion and the advertising agency Change are already a part of the Valentin&Byhr Group.

- This acquisition is another important piece of the puzzle in the mix of communications skills that is building our business, says Roberth Emanuelsson, principal owner and CEO at Arena Media. Zooma is a profitable company with a growth potential that is a perfect fit for the Valentin&Byhr Group.

"ZoomA joining the Valentin&Byhr Group is exceptionally good news to us"
Erik Emanuelsson, CEO

Zooma was founded in 2001 by current CEO Anders Björklund and has since been owned by the international technology company Semcon. Zooma is a full service agency within digital and online communication with a focus on marketing and communication strategy, content and 3D production. Zooma will join the Valentin&Byhr Group during the end of 2014.

- Zooma joining the Valentin&Byhr Group is exceptionally good news to us, explains Erik Emanuelsson, CEO at Valentin&Byhr. We will get a streamlined digital agency under our roof, which is perfectly in line with our strategy to offer unique niche qualifications that fit the future of communication.

The acquisition entails 100% of Zooma who will carry on working as an independent company within the Valentin&Byhr Group. Apart from all obvious synergy effects and know-how handovers, there is at the present time nothing in the pipeline to suggest that Zooma should be integrated with the other agencies within the group.

- Becoming a part of the Valentin&Byhr Group enables us to clarify our offer while achieving even better conditions for growth. The Zooma journey continues in a, to us, completely natural environment where communication is everything, says Anders Björklund, CEO at Zooma.
