Stingray’s commercial services division Stingray Business is poised to expand into the European market with the acquisition of DJ-Matic, a provider of in-store media solutions (music, video, digital signage) for businesses with clients in Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, and Denmark. Launched in 2000, DJ-Matic serves clients in a range of industries including bars and pubs, retail stores, restaurants, hotels, and fitness centers. Under the terms of the agreement, Stingray will fully own and operate DJ-Matic with the continued direction of the company’s current leadership team. Stingray says the acquisition supports its business plan and growth strategy by giving Stingray Business a solid foothold in Europe and a share in the local demand for curated, commercially-licenced entertainment services. Stingray Business, already a leader in the Canadian background music market with clients in 78,000 locations, has been on a growth streak signing contracts over the last 12 months with Mexico’s Farmacias del Ahorro, entered the Australian market with the acquisitions of SBA Music and SMA Entertainment, and acquired Novramedia, a Toronto-based design, development, and digital media solutions company.
