Portland, OR (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
Tarot.com, a leading pioneer in online horoscopes and divination since 1995, today announced its acquisition by Japan's Zappallas Inc., a world leader in digital content focused on divination. Together they forge the world's largest divination company.
Based in Portland, Ore., Tarot.com is part of Daily Insight Group (DIG), which publishes a network of popular entertainment websites for horoscopes, Astrology, Numerology, Tarot and gaming. DIG's properties and six million user base will combine with Zappalla's properties and expansive Asian user base to create the largest digital divination network in the world.
"This is an amazing opportunity for growth," said Jessica Abel, General Manager of DIG. "Our companies are a natural fit in terms of complementary divination content and a primarily female audience. Our world-class writers and authentic content combined puts us on a global scale. We are already looking to expand with new hires in the U.S. and Japan, as well as an employee exchange program between offices in both countries."
Daily Insight Group will continue its operations in Portland, Ore., with increased benefits and new opportunities for employees, effective immediately.
"Joining forces with Zappallas will really take Tarot.com to the next level," said Abel. "I’m most excited about the depth of content and technology we now share. It's East-meets-West in divination. We will benefit from Zappallas' strong technology foundation, and they will benefit from our expertise, especially with desktops and tablets, in their market."
"This is just the first step in what promises to be a much larger endeavor."
