"The US personal finance market is a key growth market for our business, and this latest acquisition reaffirms our commitment to further diversify our revenue base."

"We are continuing to build a strong foothold in the North American market and look forward to accelerating our growth strategy to further leverage both our skillset and technology platform in what is a relatively nascent sector," Weihs added.
