NetBooster Group and Artefact announce their plan to join forces

NetBooster Group and Artefact announce their plan to join forces and form the first global digital marketing agency focused on providing strategic digital marketing consultancy based around Data and Artificial Intelligence

The new global product offering will encompass consulting, creative design, data and analytics, campaign delivery and Artificial Intelligence (“AI”).

NetBooster Group (FR0000079683 – ALNBT –PEA-PME eligible), the leading independent international digital agency, with 80% of its turnover coming from abroad, and Artefact, an innovative data consulting agency focused on consulting, technology and ad creation, announce their plans to form a new player in the digital marketing agency space.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) will be placed at the heart of the digital marketing strategies that the NetBooster Group and Artefact will develop for their clients going forward. It will be used to automate the creation of campaigns from strategy development through customer journey and from Ad creation through campaign delivery and performance measurement. The global market for Artificial Intelligence is expected to reach 11.1 billion dollars by 2024, and is expected to transform the digital marketing space rapidly.*

François de la Villardière, Chairman of the Board and CEO at NetBooster Group commented: “We are very pleased that the founders of Artefact have chosen NetBooster as the partner to continue their entrepreneurial adventure with. We all believe that Artificial Intelligence will increase the efficiency of our businesses and allow for advertisers to better define their digital marketing strategies. Our newly-formed group, which will have nearly 1,000 employees across the globe, is a fantastic example of technology integration in the advertising trade.”

Artefact’s co-founders: Guillaume de Roquemaurel, Vincent Luciani and Philippe Rolet, CEO and Managing Directors, respectively, commented: “We are very happy to join forces with the NetBooster Group. Since 2014, Artefact has been building the foundations for the agency of the future through data, AI and consulting. The addition of marketing delivery capabilities and NetBooster’s international presence will accelerate our vision of consolidation within the industry. Our goal is to add value to advertisers by reinventing the role of the marketing agency with new tools that enable productivity gains and the creation of entirely new business models.”.

Founded three years ago, Artefact has around 100 employees and works with major clients such as Danone, Orange, Samsung and Engie. The Company produced a turnover of €5m in 2016 (200% up on their 2015 numbers) and foresees growth of around 100% in 2017, with profitability in line with the NetBooster Group. Artefact will bring to the newly formed Group its experience in Data consulting, Artificial Intelligence and Data analysis. The commercial and technological competencies offered by Artefact should yield a significant competitive advantage for all the channels (Search, CRM, display, programmatic, etc.) where NetBooster is active and in all thirteen countries where it is present.

NetBooster and Artefact have already been testing the complementarity of their product offering for mutual clients such as AccorHotels and Groupe SEB, which like all our clients, will benefit from the strong synergies between the two companies. As a result of this deal, the new Group foresees significant synergies, with a new data offering being afforded to existing NetBooster clients, an ability for Artefact to execute digital marketing campaigns for their clients, and for the new combined business to attract new clients as a result of the new global product offering of the group.

The new agency will initially work to implement its full service business offering, providing customers with a seamless journey from marketing strategy development to campaign delivery on the back of rigorous data analysis and engineering.

This transaction is a major step in delivering the strategy announced by the new management team that was made public at the analyst presentation on the 27th of April, with the goal, ultimately, to invent the marketing agency of the future.

Terms of the Transaction

The transaction, handled by Cambron Parnters for Artefact, will be structured as a share swap with NetBooster increasing its share capital by 6.9m shares against a contribution in kind of all the outstanding shares of Artefact, leading to a dilution of 26.4% for existing NetBooster shareholders. The new shares will consist of both ordinary shares and preference shares (ADP1 and ADP2 Preference Shares).

The ADP1 preference shares are subject to the achievement of certain objectives for FY2017 EBITDA for Artefact, with the maximum dilution then rising to 28.4%. The ADP 2 preference shares are subject to performance conditions.   

Once the transaction is consummated, Artefact’s founders will become one of the main shareholders of NetBooster Group and will be called upon to take on important management roles in the combined new business:

  • Guillaume de Roquemaurel, President and Co-Founder of Artefact will become COO and be in charge of deploying Artefact’s data offering across the whole of the group
  • Vincent Luciani, Managing Director and co-founder of Artefact, will become Managing Director of France
  • Philippe Rolet, Managing Director and co-founder of Artefact, will take on the role of Group CTO and will be in charge of the technical development teams

François de la Villardière will continue to exercise his current functions within the NetBooster Group, whilst the former MD of France, Emmanuel Arendarczyk, will take on the role of Group SVP Global Clients.

The proposed transaction has been approved by the Board of Directors of NetBooster and Artefact and will be submitted to NetBooster’s shareholders for approval at an Extraordinary Shareholders’ meeting to be held on July 27, 2017 at 11:00 am.

metapeople – part of NetBooster Group – secures a 12 month contract with Center Parcs after a successful online video test 

metapeople Duisburg, part of NetBooster Group ((FR0000079683 – ALNBT – PEA-PME eligible), a leading independent European agency in digital performance marketing, started a display performance campaign for Center Parcs Europe to increase brand awareness and early bookings for summer holidays. The trial run has been very successful, leading to the European specialist for family trips, to sign a one-year contract with metapeople to manage their programmatic Display campaigns.

For the first time, Center Parcs supported by metapeople, started a wide-ranging display-strategy in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany focusing on programmatic display and video, which ran simultaneously to a TV campaign to advertise their 25 holiday parks – 21 Center Parcs and 4 Sunparks.  The display campaign included rich media formats as well as Facebook Ads with emphasis on a detailed analysis as well as on an optimization by offsite-and onsite data.

As part of NetBooster Group, metapeople were selected by Center Parks due to to their presence in the European performance market. “Their profound know-how in DoubleClick’s Online Marketing Suite especially convinced us”, says Claudia Bergholz, group online media specialist at Center Parcs Europe in Brussels. “But also the great and smooth support has to be emphasised. From planning and realizing the campaign to presenting the results, everything was easy and on high standards, which also includes the quick adjustment of the reporting’s for this first test.”

metapeople used Google Analytics Premium together with the Digital Marketing Suite by DoubleClick, to build  a coherent attribution-model for display-branding-campaigns for Center Parcs Europe. “Our display-strategy, including Social-Ads for Facebook, is based on defined KPIs and is perfectly apposite”, explains Claudia Bergholz.

The TV-spots were supported by online-videos with a length of 20 or 30 seconds to increase the brand awareness. “We wanted to gain the maximum range with a high view or completion rate with the budget we had”, underlines Barbara Kochniss, metapeople’s Head of Media.

 “metapeople implemented our strategy with well-balanced media plans in the different countries”, Claudia Bergholz summarizes the results of the first test. Further joint activities will follow as metapeople and Center Parcs have signed a one-year contract after the success of their display campaign.

NetBooster (FR0000079683 – ALNBT – PEA-PME eligible), a leading independent European agency in digital performance marketing, today announces its results for the second quarter of 2015, with an EBITDA increase of 20%.

In the second quarter of 2015, NetBooster recorded an increase in EBITDA to €1.2m, up from €1m in the same period in 2014, with profitability level of 13.8% (11.6% in the prior year).

Growing budgets from existing satisfied clients such as Deutsche Telekom and the start of new projects will add momentum for the second half of the year as well.

OUTLOOK 2015
The management anticipates reaching a target EBITDA range between €5.5m and €6.0m for the year-end 2015 and NetBooster is well positioned to further establish itself as a full service world-wide digital agency for large companies.
