Paris, 7 September 2017 – INVIBES ADVERTISING, an advanced technology company specialized in digital in-feed advertising, today published its turnover for first-half 2017.
DYNAMIC GROWTH AND SUCCESSFUL INVIBES ADVERTISING OFFER
INVIBES ADVERTISING posted consolidated turnover of €1,389 thousand in the six months to 30 June 2017, led by the many innovations launched since the start of the year.
This excellent performance confirms the appeal of INVIBES ADVERTISING's innovative advertising offer, which has been significantly enhanced and deployed across leading target audience portals, winning numerous major clients such as Bacardi, Cisco, Danone, Nissan, Opel and Samsung.
STRATEGIC FINANCING ROUND TO SUPPORT INTERNATIONAL EXPANSION
Since the start of 2017, the Group has stepped up its expansion in and especially outside France, notably through partnerships in Switzerland and Spain. Thanks to this assertive and targeted sales strategy, INVIBES ADVERTISING has attracted new investors including investment fund MICROCAPS, advised by SAINT LEGER CAPITAL, and holding company LES ENTREPRENEURS REUNIS (LER). The two funds acquired an equity interest in the Group in August 2017 as part of a €450 thousand financing round.
Florent Saint-Leger, a consultant for MICROCAPS, and Martin Genot, LER Chairman, said: "We are extremely proud to be able to support INVIBES ADVERTISING because we firmly believe in the Group's sound fundamentals and significant growth potential. The technological innovations developed by INVIBES position the Group as a genuine challenger to US heavyweights Google and Facebook."
Nicolas Pollet, ceo and co-founder of INVIBES ADVERTISING, said: "We are delighted to have these two new investors among the Group's shareholders. The funds raised will enable us to invest in short?term international growth drivers and, in particular, extend our offer to new countries."
BRIGHT PROSPECTS CONFIRMED IN 2017
INVIBES ADVERTISING is seeing a significant increase in orders over the second half of 2017 compared with the same period in 2016, suggesting another year of virtuous growth in full-year 2017 following sales increases of 54% between 2015 and 2016 and 854% between 2013 and 2016.
