ReachLocal Expands International Footprint in Europe

Company Opens First Austrian Office

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ReachLocal, Inc.

"Austria is an attractive location for expansion with almost 300,000 SMEs in the country that generate $96 billion euros in turnover per annum."

Europe continues to be an important part of the company's global operations and expansion plans. ReachLocal's global presence now includes 14 countries.
