In order to strenghten its market position as the leading provider of European data, Bisnode expands its footprint in the Baltic region by acquiring SIA Datu Serviss Dun and Bradstrets Latvian franchise partner.

Bisnode, the leading European Data & Analytics company, acquires SIA Datu Serviss, the Dun & Brandstreet (D&B) franchise partner in Latvia for more than 20 years. The acquisition further expands Bisnode’s coverage in the Baltic region, where it already operates in Estonia. The deal also emphasizes its strong relationship with D&B, increasing the number of D&B franchise countries to 17 across Europe. The company is mainly serving international customers via the D&B worldwide network, with some business information solutions also being offered locally.

 “I am really happy to see D&B Latvia joining Bisnode Group. Increasing coverage in Northern Europe enables us to better serve our Nordic customers. I look forward to working with Mr. Grišanovs, who will continue managing the Latvian operations and will support us in bringing new value-added services to customers in Latvia,” says Juha Airaksinen, Managing Director Finland and Country Manager Estonia, who will now also oversee the Latvian organization.

“With this acquisition Bisnode will strengthen its position as the leading Data and Analytics provider in Europe and will now be available in 19 countries across Europe. Furthermore, it will enable us to serve our Nordic customers even better as well as enable us to bring new value-added services to customers in Latvia,” says Magnus Silfverberg, CEO of Bisnode Group.

“SIA Datu Serviss has had strong partnerships with many Bisnode Group companies for more than 10 years. Further development of our company’s future services requires new forms of cooperation, and with Bisnode we will be well placed to drive this development. I am glad that SIA Datu Serviss is joining the Bisnode Group, which is a group of high-level professionals and recognized leaders in the European market,” says Pāvels Grišanovs, CEO of SIA Datu Serviss.
