Company becomes majority stockholder

BERLIN — German film player Constantin Film has increased its stake in Cologne-based new-media agency Innovum Smart Products from 26% to 51%.

Move, which comes at a time when Germany’s film players are largely scaling down their Internet operations, is in line with Constantin’s youth-oriented business.

Innovum is active in a broad range of Web services, including the development of cross-marketing campaigns.
