Verivox was acquired by Oakley Capital in December 2009 from Independent News & Media. Verivox was founded in Heidelberg in 1998 and became Germany’s largest independent consumer portal for energy.
Verivox has successfully helped more than 7.5 million households switch their utility providers with consumer savings in excess of €1 billion. In addition, Verivox offers online comparisons for telecommunication, insurance and finance products as well as a search engine for commission-free real estate properties and pre-owned automobiles.
Following a competitive sales process, Verivox was sold to ProSiebenSat.1 in August 2015.
