The purchase contract was signed in Helsinki on March 29. Open Net Oy is a recently founded Finnish company which is involved in the development and implementation of WAP and WEB content platform services. The total product portfolio comprises the areas of application development, customer projects, WAP concepts, training and consulting and in-house news production. Open Net is also an exclusive partner of Nokia in the context of the Nokia Artus developers' program and a partner of Hewlett Packard in the framework of the e-bazaar forum. The WAP products of Open Net are already being offered and used by Finnish and Swedish mobile telephone network operators. Open Net Oy is the market leader in Finland in the field of Internet sports news, focusing on Formula 1, rallies, ice hockey and soccer (www.open-net.fi). Our aim is to create a WEB/WAP Internet sports page in German, English and other languages. Together with Open Net Oy and acoon, the Internet search machine we acquired in February, Drillisch already realises up to 3 million page impressions a month. This step is aimed to strengthen the position of the Drillisch Group as a content platform provider for mobile Internet solutions and services and to extend the company's activities in the area of WAP services. Open Net Oy is the second acquisition in this area and the first international investment of the Drillisch Group. The earlier acquisition was the search engine provider acoon, which developed the first combined WEB and WAP search engine and currently has the largest database of WAP addresses.
