    Here you go . . .

    “European media companies Axel Springer and PubliGroupe purchased a 50.1 % stake in Digital Window Ltd. Together, the two companies already own Zanox, one of Europe’s leading affiliate networks and this new acquisition further strengthens their position in the UK”

    “Moving forward this partnership will see us expand our business outside of the UK and provide exciting and rewarding opportunities for our partners. Kevin Brown, CEO, will continue to manage the company adding “Axel Springer and PubliGroupe have acknowledged Digital Window’s methodology and core values as a significant part of our growth in the UK. The ability to mirror this throughout Europe and beyond makes this a perfect partnership increasing the opportunities for affiliates in every way”.
