Auction-house QXL.com plc has acquired Norway's largest online auction site, DinSide Auksjon, for £13.2 million. The deal, covered by the issue of 1,296,154 QXL shares, strengthens the auctioneer's presence in Europe.

Jim Rose, CEO of QXL.com, said: "This acquisition will enable QXL.com to quickly gain a strong position in Scandinavia, a region with the highest Internet penetration in the world. Our strategy is to complement organic growth with suitable acquisitions of businesses that have the capacity to significantly enhance our pan-European sales and marketing operations."
