We analyse the latest purchase of companies Mediaset, the largest national audiovisual company, has had to adapt through inorganic acquisitions in order to remain market leaders and continue to diversify. Find out with us which are the three most recent ones.

Getting to know Mediaset

With the merger between "Four", "Telecinco"and their respective investments in other media, Mediaset managed to consolidate its position as the company with the largest market share, increasing its revenues and unique views.


However, in 2018, alarm bells were ringing as recurring revenues began to decline, partly due to a reduction in ad fees due to a change in business strategy by advertisers, who are starting to focus on targeting younger audiences online.

In other words, the young audience for which the channel was known has started to watch content on other digital platforms.

A continuación, les exponemos las últimas adquisiciones realizadas por la compañía:

El Desmarque

The Unmarking is a digital content platform related to eSports or electronic sports which has more than 2.3 million unique monthly users.

This acquisition has been aimed at attracting an audience with mainly male and young profiles, who consume it via the online platform, mobile application and broadcasts from its online radio.

This German communications company is one of the market share leaders due to its extensive coverage on television, radio and in the print mediawhere it has a great local strength.

The investment made in ProSiebenSat ha sido la compra de una cantidad de equity, sin llega a acercarse al control, para poder entrar en un mercado consolidado como el alemán y diversificar geografías.

adquisición mediaset


Colvin is one of the leading companies in the international flower sales, en este caso la empresa ha apostado por continuar con las inversiones en la misma tal y como hizo en 2018, en este caso ha repetido con una inversión de 2M€.

This company is far removed from the market in which Mediaset operates, as with the acquisition of 21Buttons, the company is looking for recurring sources of revenue outside of advertising that can help consolidate the company in times of low revenues to avoid large swings in the share price.
