Global Savings Group (GSG) has announced their latest funding round ($15 million), along with their exclusive negotiations to acquire iGraal from M6 Group, to close out a successful 2019 campaign, which saw GSG hit several key milestones, received numerous industry awards and expanded into the US market.
The latest funding round came from existing investors Rocket Internet, Holtzbrinck Ventures, DTCP and RTP Global, and will be used to further expand the German PubTech company’s presence within the US and UK markets and to fund future acquisitions. 
Recently, GSG also announced that they had entered exclusive negotiations for French cashback player iGraal, valued at $137 million. This follows on from their acquisition of browser extension platform Pouch in January 2019.
“The media market in the US is a very exciting and ever-changing one, and we knew we needed to establish a foothold within the country to be able to service and better understand the challenges of our key clients, which include Business Insider and CNN,” said Johannes Wirth, global chief revenue officer at GSG.
“We have seen incredible growth in the first 10 months of operation and have seen the market go through some key changes and iterations.”
