"In the first quarter, our performance was driven very strongly by the tourism segment, which grew more than 160% year-on-year. But the entire holding is growing significantly due to the recent acquisitions. They have allowed us to diversify our revenues, to effectively exploit the opportunities of the e-commerce market, but also to develop the subscription model and advertising products" says Jacek Świderski, CEO of Wirtualna Polska Holding S.A.

Grupa WP’s most recent acquisition is the Samito marketing platform.

The Samito technology will become part of WP Ads, a self-service tool for managing advertising campaigns on the advertising space of WP and other publishers in the WPartner network. The distinguishing feature of WP Ads is the option of settlements based on the ROAS (Return On Ad Spend) model.
