Founded in 1999 with north of 400 publications relying on Jaicom’s products and services in their subscription and distribution operations, Jaicom is a provider of customer management systems across the Nordics and rest of Europe. The company offers a range of software and services to support newspapers, magazine publishers and associations.

Daniel Lee, CEO of Aquila, said: “Jaicom is the market leader in their space and a great match for Aquila as we continue to invest and strengthen our position in the global media vertical. With clearly complementary products, I’m excited for what the future holds for both Jaicom and Atex’s customers and employees.”.

“We are delighted to welcome Jaicom into the Atex family,” said Federico Marturano, CEO of Atex. “In continuously supporting our customers with their digital journey, this event is a great step to improve our offering in subscription-based journalism.”

Jorma Ainassaari, CEO of Jaicom, noted: “We at Jaicom are looking forward to integrating with the Atex family. This is a great opportunity for us to take our business to the next level, as well as continue to enhance and develop our products and services.”

Jaicom will maintain their autonomy operating as an independent business unit of Atex. With a permanent-hold worldview to acquisitions, Aquila looks forward to being a forever home for Jaicom’s employees, clients and partners, says the company.
