FE International, Inc., the global market leader in mid-market technology mergers and acquisitions (M&A), announces the acquisition of Webretailer, the world’s leading resource for businesses selling through online marketplaces, by Adventrum.
Launched in 2003, Webretailer.com is the world’s leading resource for businesses selling through online marketplaces like Amazon, eBay, and more. Over the years, the site has built incredible trust with its audience. Webretailer helps more than a million yearly visitors with guides, news, ratings, and reviews of everything related to selling on online marketplaces.
Adventrum CEO Kristoffer Lindström said, “Webretailer will be a splendid addition to our growing B2B lead-performance sites portfolio here at Adventrum.

The previous owner has done tremendous work growing the site into a leading resource for online business selling, and we are excited to bring our expertise to grow and expand the site further.” Lindström was pleased to partner with FE International again as this is their second acquisition through the advisory firm. “We are very satisfied with the process and the work FE has put into the process of closing this deal.
