Anecta has acted as advisor to Miss Group in the acquisition of Hoststar


Anecta has acted as financial and strategic advisor to Miss Group in their first acquisition of 2022, one of Switzerland’s largest web hosting providers, Hoststar

Headquartered in Fraubrunnen, Switzerland, Hoststar was founded in 1996 by Claude Hofer. Today, the company serves 80,000 customers with 180,000 hosted domains across Switzerland and Austria.

Hoststar is the second Swiss acquisition to be completed by Miss Group, following the acquisition of fellow Swiss web hosting provider, Webland, in December 2021. The combined acquisitions are expected to add over 100,000 SME customers and position the Group as a leader in the Swiss market and DACH region, further strengthening its revenue growth and international reach. Anecta acted as financial and strategic advisor to Miss Group in both acquisitions in Switzerland.

As the largest web hosting provider in Switzerland, Hoststar has built an impeccable reputation with both staff and customers for its market-leading services. As part of Miss Group, Hoststar will have access to our international network of expertise and robust technical knowledge, as well as a broader range of products and services to offer its customers.

– Mattias Kaneteg, founder and CEO of Miss Group

I am extremely happy and proud that we have found an investor in Miss Group that is a good cultural fit for the company and willing to invest in the future of Hoststar.

– Claude Hofer, founder of Hoststar

Following our successful transaction with Swiss Webland, we are pleased to also assist Miss Group in the acquisition of Hoststar. The acquisition consolidates Miss Group’s position as a market leader in Switzerland and adds one of the fastest growing web hosting providers to Miss Group’s portfolio.

We look forward to following the two companies’ journey together with Miss Group as the new owner.
