Groupon Acquires Indonesian Group Buying Site Disdus
Groupon has acquired yet another local group buying clone to expand its network of daily deal sites across the globe. The company has snapped up Indonesia’s Disdus, a portfolio company of venture capital firm East Ventures, reports say.
A press release in Indonesian was translated by the folks over at Daily Social.
Groupon will rename the daily deal site Groupon Indonesia, marking another addition to the company’s network in Southeast Asia after recent acquisitions closed in Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Taiwan. Terms of the Disdus acquisition were not disclosed.
The collective buying site currently serves Jakarta and Bandung with daily deals – actually a deal every 2 days – and aims to expand its market throughout Indonesia by the end of 2011.
As a result of the acquisition, Groupon is now operational in 46 countries, and boasts more than 6,000 employees worldwide.
