Brand Thunder Acquires BrowserNation Clients, Expands Global Reach of Chrome, Firefox and Internet Explorer Themes
COLUMBUS, OH – January 31, 2012 – Brand Thunder LLC (http://www.brandthunder.com), the browser theme specialists, announced today it is the provider of record for BrowserNation clients. The agreement merges the client list of the two leading companies for interactive browser themes and takes BrowserNation clients from Firefox only and extends themes to their fans on Chrome, the fastest growing browser, and Internet Explorer, the world’s most used browser.
With more than 200 world-class brands already listed as Brand Thunder clients, the BrowserNation agreement delivers an immediate 25% boost to its size with further growth possible from multi-theme agreements. The growth complements Brand Thunder’s core business by building upon its European and Asian presence and creates a foothold in the burgeoning Latino markets of Central and South America.
Brand Thunder sports foundation continues to grow with BrowserNations’s worldwide-appeal with football clubs like Barclays Premier League Tottenham Hotspur, Chelsea F.C. and Liverpool F.C., rugby teams like Saracens and Munster, ICC Cricket World Cup, the NBA and Indy Car racing.
The agreement builds on the surge in music industry browser themes. Brand Thunder’s own relationships with RCA Records, Sony Music and Universal Music Group will be enhanced with the addition of artists representing EMI, UMG Latin, Epic Records and more. Artists like Marc Anthony, Enrique Iglesias and Shakira plus a host of others from Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes Radio, to India’s legendary singers Mohd Rafi and Asha Bhosle, and numerous Indie artists have discovered browser themes as an exceptional channel to engage with their fan base.
“Adding a list of premier brands with a global footprint is an incredible boost to our company,” said Patrick Murphy, founder and CEO of Brand Thunder. “We know the demand is there based on the tremendous international use of BT:Engage, Brand Thunder’s do-it-yourself browser theme creator. This will help us make a bigger splash in the market.”
“Both companies have demonstrated the power of online engagement through the browser in a visual and interactive way,” said Romain Rousseau, COO of BrowserNation. “Yet given the changes in the once stable browser market, it makes sense to combine efforts and deliver this powerful communication tool across all leading browser platforms.”
