March 2008: Following the acquisition in June 2006 of Stock Uno by a management team led by Alberto Muguiro, and financed by the private equity firm Inversiones Ibersuizas, Stock Uno continues its growth in the sector of Support Services with the acquisition of Diana Marketing Operacional.

Stock Uno is an outsourcing services provider in the areas of merchandising, promotion, logistics and point of sale management. The use of technology for the capture, process and transmission of information, as well as a business model which encompasses the whole operational cycle, constitute a key differentiating element in its positioning in a market with strong growth potential.

With the acquisition of Diana Marketing Operacional, Stock Uno reinforces its leading positioning in hypermarkets, and enhances its product offering, which ranges from merchandising and point of sale management and promotion to promotional logistics. Moreover, this acquisition allows Stock Uno double its size, surpassing €80 million in sales in 2008.

SOCIOS advises the shareholders of Stock Uno on all aspects of the transaction.
