Fjordmail International to acquire Hungarian email service Citromail
Oslo, 30 June 2022
We are proud to announce that as of July 1st, the Hungarian website and email service Citromail will be a part of the Fjordmail family.
Citromail was launched in 2004 and is a well-known brand in the Hungarian market.
The email service was owned by Central Médiacsoport Zrt., one of Hungary ‘s leading media companies, after the acquisition of Sanoma Media Budapest Zrt. in 2014. Citromail has been in their ownership since then.
– We are extremely pleased and honored to step in as new owners of Citromail, and we look forward to continue developing Citromail into an even better service for all the loyal users, says Håvard Langmoen, the CEO of Fjordmail International.
He also remarks that the new family member is a good fit in all ways:
– Our business is based on offering premium and local email services. Citromail has a very strong presence and an excellent value proposition to the Hungarian consumers. In particular, Citromail offers a very helpful local customer support with high competence. We believe that this was an excellent opportunity to enter the Hungarian market.
Bálint Bognár, Head of the digital business unit in Central Médiacsoport Zrt. comments the Citromail divestment:
– Central’s developments focus on innovating our existing brands alongside the introduction of new products. The most important element of our professional strategy will remain content development, and we will continue to invest in multimedia content production, which will be achieved, among other things, through the sale of Citromail.
Citromail will continue as a separate and individual brand with the new owners. The email users will keep their emails and their email address, as well as access to Citromail’s excellent customer service. Citromail users can also expect more exciting news to be announced in the time to come.
