Gem has confirmed that it is to acquire the digital media distribution service, Ztorm.
The deal provides UK distributor and retail services provider, Gem, with a digital distribution platform; one which already specialises in games, films, audio books and music, as well as offering hosting services, online payment systems and customer service management.
On top of this, Ztorm also has a number of existing supplier deals in place, providing digital download services for a range of retailers, including Game, Gamestation, PC World, Dixons and Currys.
"I am delighted to welcome Ztorm to the Gem Group," commented Gem’s group strategic development director, Alex Croft.
"The business is exceptionally well placed to develop and grow within an increasingly significant area of the market. As Gem continues to expand the range of retail and partner services on offer – the solutions that Ztorm provide will further enhance our partner offering and the value that we are able to add."
Ztorm’s CEO Anders Emblad added: "We are thrilled to have found a new owner in the Gem Group.
"Joining forces with the Gem Group will enable synergies benefiting our customers and partners in the coming months and years. Our business relationships will continuously grow and we look forward to extending our market and product offerings as we move ahead."
