Bijan Khezri, Group-CEO and Delegate of the Board of Directors, invests to obtain 20% stake in Marquard Media Group AG.

Jürg Marquard, Founder and Chairman of the Board of Directors, comments:

“For more than 18 months Bijan and I have developed a strong partnership that serves as the foundation for the firm’s future. During a rather short period of time, far-reaching restructurings were introduced and partly completed to competitively empower Marquard Media Group to enter new areas of business and scale new business models. During the more than 50-year history of my firm, the opening of the capital structure, for the very first time, is an important strategic milestone. This is the beginning of a new chapter of substantial growth.”

Bijan Khezri added: “We are the ‘speedboat’ of the media industry. During a short period of time, we have developed new approaches to all areas of business in Gaming, IT and Lifestyle across all core markets. A basis for substantial growth has been laid. During the next years, Marquard Media will reassume the pioneering role within the media industry that characterized the founding years as well as significant phases of the firm’s entire history. My investment stands for the unique partnership with Jürg Marquard und the significant potential in value creation that we will set free together.“
