ClassMarkets runs more than 80 classifieds sites for around 40 regional and national publishers. Its national clients include DuMont, F.A.Z. and Funke Mediengruppe. It also operates the real estate search engine Immobilo.de.
ClassMarkets’ new owner Kimeta operates more than 40 regional and niche job boards as a white label solution for publishers. It considers itself the market leader in job classifieds solutions. Together, ClassMarkets and Kimeta run more than 150 online classifieds portals.
“Both companies will continue to offer their proven products and, of course, benefit from each other’s strengths,” Kimeta MD Alexander Roß said in a statement.
“Kimeta is the perfect partner in the regional job market,” ClassMarkets COO Stefanie Heinemann added.
Going forward, the companies will aim to move publishers closer together to offer cross-listing options.
