Bisnode has closed its divestment of ABC Germany, one of the leading German B2B supplier search engines, to the Dutch Avant Invest B.V., which already owns the ABC operations in Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. Both companies had signed an agreement on July 5, 2012, but the sale was subject to the prior completion of an abbreviated financial year. With this transaction, which is effective retroactively as of August 1, 2012, Bisnode has sold the last company from its product information business area. The group is focussing on growth in its core business areas credit and risk information solutions, marketing solutions and business information solutions.
