Tapaus’s parent company, LIWLIG Group, strengthens its position in the Nordic market by acquiring Norwegian event agency 6.Sans.
On August 17, 2022, the LIWIG Group purchased 100% of the shares of the Norwegian event agency 6.Sans. The company is one of Norway’s most successful and awarded event and brand experience agencies with clients that include Handelsbanken, Telia, Carlsberg Ringnes and Innovasjon Norge. All three of 6.Sans’s owners will continue to hold operative roles in 6.Sans and the LIWLIG Group. The 6.Sans owners have also agreed to invest part of purchase price into the LIWLIG Group.
“We’ve spent the past 20 years building 6.Sans into Norway’s leading brand experience agency and today we are incredibly happy and proud to start this new journey with the LIWLIG’s Group’s amazing people and clients,” say 6.Sans founders, Tron Mathisen and Per Morten Bergh.
6.Sans Gruppen Ltd. is made up of the companies 6.Sans Events Ltd., 6.Sans Travel Ltd., 6.Sans Film Ltd. and Interactive Games Ltd. The group had a turnover of around 80 million NOK (around 8 million EUR). 6.Sans has won numerous national and international awards.
“I’m really impressed by 6.Sans’s long history and the passion of its founders. This acquisition will enable us to better serve our clients in the Nordics and to offer our more than 200 employees new and interesting career opportunities. We set out to find the best brand experience agency in Norway and I believe we found that in 6.Sans. It’s my privilege to welcome 6.Sans to the LIWLIG Group,” says LIWLIG Group’s CEO, Timo Aalto.
