Austria’s Marketing Startup App Radar Acquires TheTool

London, UK, 23rd February 2021- App Radar, an Austria-based app marketing company has acquired its Spanish competitor TheTool, which is a VC-backed developer of an app optimization platform. According to sources, the assets-only deal will strengthen App Radar’s presence in Europe and enable the app marketing company to expand the product offering with new features to its clients. It is one of the first major acquisitions of an App Store Optimisation tool in the industry. 

App Radar is a reputed app marketing agency that provides self-service tools and manages services that drive organic and paid user acquisition to companies including Rovio Entertainment, Wargaming and DEGIRO across 160 countries. Whereas TheTool specializes in data insights for app marketers, and its customer base with more than 400 customers will be taken over by App Radar.

The Acquisition

The acquisition follows App Radar recording a second straight year of turnover doubling and a raft of deal-making in the industry such as App Lovin’s $1 billion deal to buy Adjust and Blackstone’s $400 million investment in LiftOff. The global app market hit a record $31.9 billion in quarterly revenue at the end of 2020 according to App Annie. 

Thomas Kriebernegg, CEO and Co-Founder of App Radar, said, “This deal is a huge step in App Radar’s journey. It will enable us to significantly expand our product offering and provide us with a stronger footing in the European app market.”

App Radar has been built to be one of the easiest to use app marketing solutions available on the market. Its features have been designed around a clear UX developed in line with feedback from marketers. As a result, it is the only platform that works hand-in-hand with their workflows. This allows marketers to move between research, analytics, and editing all inside one solution rather than having to run multiple solutions.
