Online publishing, content and services company ME Digital Group has acquired Cobone.com. The acquisition will see the Middle East’s biggest deals website shift to a new home alongside the region’s leading consumer women’s portal, ExpatWoman.com.
Cobone has been an innovative leader in the development of transactional ecommerce in the Middle East and the site’s users have saved over $172 million over its short four-year history.
“ExpatWoman.com has grown exponentially. Maintaining the strength of our Middle East focus, the site also covers 240 countries globally,” says ME Digital Group CEO Jane Drury. “Cobone is another Middle Eastern digital pioneer; a dynamic, evolving business that is the clear leader in its category. Cobone’s e-commerce expertise is highly complementary to the reach, information and connectivity focus of ExpatWoman.”
Together, Cobone and ExpatWoman.com reach an audience of over a million individuals each month.
