Established in 1983, Volt Directories currently operates in publishing, digital marketing and mobile app businesses. The company specializes in the production and commercialization of advertising and printing of Uruguay Telephone Directories. The acquisition of Volt Directories by FCR Media makes perfect business sense given FCR Media’s expertise in helping businesses be present and highly visible across all digital media channels.
“The acquisition of Volt Directories in Uruguay by FCR Media means only one thing – FCR Media became a global Digital Media Agency. FCR Media is now even more diversified not only in its products but also geographical presence. Furthermore, there are substantial synergies to be extracted from the acquisition in the fields of digital marketing and advertising. This will help FCR Media enter the Uruguayan market as a strong player, offering extremely high visibility to the clients in all media channels, as well as target growth opportunities in the entire Latin America,” said the CEO of FCR Media, Jon Martinsen.
After closing the deal, FCR Media will operate in 12 markets: Ireland, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Romania, Russia, Hungary, Croatia and Uruguay. In 2014, the Group generated the revenue of EUR 64.4 million and EBITDA of EUR 2.4 million. FCR Media is fully controlled by BaltCap.
