(SFC) Premium sports data and digital media services giant IMPIRE AG was acquired by deltatre, the sports media and technology firm announced Tuesday. The acquisition is the first in the Italian firm’s 28-year history.
The combining of deltatre and IMPIRE AG will allow deltatre to deliver a wider range of products and services to its global customers, including IMPIRE’s client portfolio in German-speaking markets like media companies, broadcasters, football clubs, federations and leagues.
IMPIRE’s presence in Central Europe will also help deltatre’s growth and provide the Italian-based firm with global ownership of key proprietary technologies and products like VIS.TRACK optical tracking system and the VT.GPS.
“This union will give us the important opportunity to be closer to our customers and to deliver more fully in the German market directly,” deltatre Chief Executive Officer and Founder Giampiero Rinaudo said. “Inheriting IMPIRE’s great tradition of technical achievement will constitute a qualitative addition to our portfolio and, most importantly, deltatre will be in a prime position to offer a full spectrum of services not only in Germany, but also to expand to new markets in Central and Eastern Europe.”
“deltatre will offer us the strategic power to advance in the development and delivery to our national and international clients,” IMPIRE Chief Executive Officer Christian Holzer said. “We are convinced deltatre’s successful sporting track record makes it the best strategic partner for IMPIRE and we look forward to providing the market with new cutting-edge solutions and services.”
