It also offers publishers and TV broadcasters the opportunity to have in-house productions syndicated worldwide by their agencies.

The database contains thousands of video productions from the areas of entertainment, news, lifestyle and features. TV stations, online and other media companies now have the opportunity to download videos around the clock and thus meet editorial deadlines. The agency group also organizes national and international photo assignments, photo shoots, reports and video productions for companies and offers event, sponsorship, PR, reportage and company-specific commissioned photography for the entire corporate sector. The undisclosed purchase price will be financed from existing liquidity as well as newly raised debt capital provided, among others, by the shareholder Deutsche Balaton AG (Heidelberg) via a bond. The shares of action press AG have been traded since May 2021 in the general over-the-counter market of the Düsseldorf Stock Exchange under WKN A2TSNU (ISIN DE000A2TSNU7). In 2022, the shares are to be listed on the Xetra stock exchange. The share capital of action press AG amounts to 22.05 million euros. The Management Board of action press AG is made up of Professor Moritz Hunzinger (Frankfurt am Main), who had already acquired a majority stake in action press in 1999 as CEO of the listed infas Holding AG (formerly Hunzinger Information AG) for 20 million deutschmarks and headed it until 2004, and Ulli Michel (Hamburg), who has been Managing Director of action press in Hamburg since 2010. Hunzinger: "Since day one, action press has delivered the information edge. Following the acquisition of ddp, action press will continue to grow strongly, and not just organically.

Hamburg, August 19, 2020 - action press is setting the course for the future. Prof. Moritz Hunzinger is joining the group of shareholders and will lead the photo agency together with long-time and proven managing director Ulli Michel. Since August 2020, Hunzinger and Michel have formed the Executive Board of the newly founded parent company, action press AG, based in Frankfurt am Main. Both are now also half owners of this "global digital media company". Michel manages the day-to-day editorial business with publishers, media customers, TV stations, photographers and partner agencies. Hunzinger is responsible for strategic development.

"I will make action press the leading photo agency in the digital age", says the new co-owner Hunzinger. "With Moritz Hunzinger onboard, we gained a passionate and well-connected media professional who has been closely associated with action press for many years. He will provide decisive impetus to our future development", says Michel. With Hunzinger, an old acquaintance is returning to action press.

Michel took over action press in the summer of 2018 as part of a management buyout and has been its sole managing director ever since.
