We kick off the month of June with a big announcement! Yesterday we acquired GapFish, a Berlin-based market research company that operates the world’s largest ISO-certified online panel community for the DACH region.
Germany is the third-largest market for market research, governed by some of the strictest data and privacy legislations in Europe. With the acquisition of GapFish, we will be able to enhance our online sample offering for Cint customers, giving access to an additional audience of more than 500,000 highly profiled, double-opt-in, premium quality research respondents across Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Together with GapFish, we will now have best-in-class supply quality, feasibility, and technology for the DACH region.
This aligns with Cint’s strategy, outlined in the IPO process in February 2021, to extend our global footprint through M&A activity.
For a little background on GapFish, the company was founded in 2012 and today conducts over 2.5 million surveys annually within the DACH region. Now, GapFish’s more than 300 global customers and more than 40 employees will come under the Cint umbrella.
Our two companies will be unified under a single commercial organisation and integrated across other business functions based on our shared mission for customer success, approach to data quality, and entrepreneurial culture. This will ensure that the GapFish offering maintains its market-leading position and will also continue to grow and expand with Cint’s global brand identity.
This news will not have any impact on day-to-day deliverables to either company’s customers. It will be business as usual! In the coming months, Cint and GapFish will collectively explore and identify common opportunities that would enhance the value we create for all our valued customers.
