Acquisition of a webcast specialist in France
9 July 2020 – Euronext Corporate Services today announced the acquisition of 3sens, a webcast and corporate events specialist in France. Created in 2002 by Jean-Michel Mellier and Pascal Blot, 3sens is a well-established Investor Relations and Communication partner of large public and private companies in France.
Along with the forthcoming opening of a new state-of-the-art webinar studio in the center of Paris in September, the acquisition of 3sens reinforces the strong positioning of Company Webcast in France, a market where its cutting-edge IR webcast technology has been utilised by more than 50% of the SBF 120 in the past two years. The founding team of 3sens will remain within Company Webcast France after the transaction in order to continue to expand the business locally.
This announcement demonstrates the ambition of Euronext Corporate Services to strengthen all of its subsidiaries through a combination of organic developments and targeted acquisitions. It is the second build-up transaction, after the acquisition of Ticker early June 2020 to support the expansion of InsiderLog in the Nordics.
Mathieu Caron, Head of Euronext Corporate Services, said: “The acquisition of 3sens is a clear statement of Euronext Corporate Services’ ambition to bring the best technology and service to its customers with the strengthening of Company Webcast’s portfolio of professional webcast and webinar solutions. I am glad that communication experts such as Jean-Michel Mellier and Pascal Blot will join the team to accelerate the expansion of the very dynamic franchise of Company Webcast in France.”
