2Parale, the biggest Romanian affiliate marketing network, part of Leo Burnett Romania Group, merged with the affiliation platform 2Performant, for which it already had the exclusive usage rights at local level. With this merger, 2Parale expands its business internationally, in more countries in Central and South-Eastern Europe and Turkey.
We started the year by announcing the partnership with 2Parale and we end 2012 in full force. 2Parale’s expansion at international level is part of the ascending evolution of the affiliate marketing industry on Romanian market and not only. Moreover, the decision comes as a strategical investment, confirming our efforts to develop and support this business segment

2Parale took over integrally the control over the affiliation platform and intends to invest in its development with new facilities to insure the results’ optimisation for network’s advertisers and affiliates.
The strategic plans of 2Parale include regional expansion in more countries in Central and South-Eastern Europe and Turkey. The consolidation at international level comes after entering Bulgarian market in 201, with 2Leva. Also, the company is currently present on the markets in Serbia, Iraq and Cyprus
2Parale’s business in Romania and Bulgarian will reach this year Euro 1M, on a market that confirmed its growth potential during the 4 years since the start of the 1st affiliation campaign in Romania via 2Parale. We managed to overrun the local market’s growth rhythm and now it’s the time to monetize the strengths of 2Performant and to make the next step in developing the business by expanding it in emerging markets
2Performant is an affiliation platform developed in 2010 by Romanian entrepreneurs Radu Spineanu – founder 2Parale, Vladimir Oane and Lavinius Marcu. It insures the technical system of registering and monitoring the sales and all actions generate via 2Parale network.
This merger insures all the premises for an explosive growth for 2Parale’s business in 2013. Our aim was always to create a company with global impact and we are convinced that 2Parale-2Performant’s platform and approach will make the difference on the market
