ValueClick Inc., a digital marketing services company, said Monday it bought Shopping.net, a privately held operator of comparison shopping and search Web sites in Europe, for $13.3 million in cash.

London-based Shopping.net, which owns 27 sites, will be integrated into ValueClick's European arm, the company said.

The company said Shopping.net is expected to generate about $4 million in sales for calendar 2006. Its contribution to ValueClick's results for the current quarter is expected to be immaterial, the company said.

Nice one fella. Fortune favours the brave!

This is a great British success story and should be right up there on the Headline page, Business Week seemed to think so. Value Click is really a company to watch, and they are making all the right noises.

Exmoorbeast,

Your comment on Valueclick is interesting. Can you expand a bit more on them?
