The Fi SYSTEM Group Carries Out an External Growth Operation in Spain

Fi SYSTEM's external growth strategy has led to the group carrying out an operation in Spain, with the aim of strengthening its position on the European market. The final agreement relative to the transfer of Barcelona-based company Intouch New Media's assets to Fi SYSTEM's Spanish subsidiary Fi Iberica was signed on the 5th November 1999 and backdated to the 1st November. The Barcelona agency, employing nine people, will report to Fi SYSTEM's European Department, headed by Albert Majerczyk. In the words of Intouch New Media founder Marc Oliver Gomperts, now at the head of Fi SYSTEM's Barcelona agency, "Fi SYSTEM's services and expertise will enable us to further widen our market by reaching out to increasingly substantial clients." Fi SYSTEM Managing Director Thierry Thevenet explains that "Intouch New Media will provide Fi SYSTEM with its solid experience of the Spanish market and knowledge of current Internet issues affecting the country. The operation is a means of launching Fi SYSTEM's international development, enabling us to become increasingly established on the European market, the group thus gaining recognition from the major European accounts." Fi SYSTEM's strategy targets a rapid increase in market share, and is the natural response to the fact that, over recent months, e-commerce has been constantly gaining in momentum throughout Europe and that multi-national competitors have emerged. Alongside this, Fi SYSTEM aims to be regarded as one of the five leading Internet service companies on the European market. In the near future, Fi SYSTEM's pan-European development will bring about further external growth operations in Spain. The group also plans to become established in the UK, Belgium and other northern European countries.
