Mrs. Claudia Breitenberger-Cerny, CEO of Quartal Flife, comments the acquisition: "Thanks to the concentration of both product ranges, customers of Quartal Flife and Trade Eleven GmbH are now also offered a one-stop-service for comprehensive high-end solutions which range from simple share price displays to complete design and creation of IR websites. Furthermore, as Trade Eleven will have significantly extended development resources and an experienced IR-support team, even extensive projects can be carried out more rapidly in the future. Our fully developed, cutting-edge product and service portfolio allows us to provide even better support for our clients."

Technological market leadership

Besides strengthening its competitive position, Quartal Flife is working intensively to further strengthen its technological market leadership. Based on a clear Road-Map Quartal Flife presents new IR services on a quarterly basis.
