Danish online media site Mediawatch reports today that the Swedish yellow page and search engine company Eniro is rumoured to be about to buy Norwegian search engine Findexa. Mediawatch quotes a financial analyst from Swedbank in the Swedish newspaper Dagens Industri.
Earlier Eniro stated that they are very much interested in buying up other search properties in the Scandinavian area. Now that is true of today’s deal.
Mediawatch mentions that today trading with the Eniro stock has been halted on the Stockholm Stock Exhange and so has the Findexa stock on the Olso Stock Exchange. This ads more fuel to the speculation that a merger is taking place in the Scandinavian search sector.
Prelim Press release from Findexa:
