Publicis Groupe acquiert Monterosa, agence mondiale du mobile, souvent primée, qui renforce le réseau BBH dans le segment clé du marketing mobile

PARIS, December 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Publicis Groupe [Euronext Paris: FR0000130577] annonce aujourd'hui l'acquisition de Monterosa, agence internationale spécialisée dans le mobile. L'agence rejoint le réseau Bartle Bogle Hegarty (BBH) et l'enrichit de son savoir-faire dans les communications mobiles.

Publicis Groupe avait été l'un des premiers à se lancer sur le marché de la publicité sur mobile, avec l'acquisition de Phonevalley en 2007. La transaction avec Monterosa poursuit cette démarche. Comme Phonevalley, Monterosa se consacre exclusivement au marketing et à la communication sur mobile, l'un des principaux secteurs numériques de croissance dans lequel Publicis Groupe veut renforcer sa présence.

Monterosa a été fondée en 2009 par quatre Suédois : Johan Hemminger, Johan Ståhle, Anton Holmquist et Carl Norberg. Basée à  Stockholm, l'agence est également implantée à New York et Singapour. Régulièrement récompensée, son équipe d'une trentaine de personnes travaille avec certaines des plus grandes marques mondiales, dont Carlsberg, Google, Mercedes Benz, Samsung et Vodafone. Parmi ses productions primées, citons la campagne « Get away » pour Mini Cooper, et diverses applications mondiales comme « Hide and Seek » pour Buick Encore en Chine, « Anywake » pour Lufthansa en Scandinavie, « Daybreak » pour AT&T aux Etats-Unis et « Dare » pour le produit Axe de Unilever en Asie.

Monterosa conservera son nom et continuera à servir ses propres clients en direct, ainsi que certains gérés par BBH ou Publicis Groupe. Cette transaction permet à l'agence de se développer géographiquement et de mieux servir ses clients. Carl Norberg, l'un des

cofondateurs de Monterosa, continuera à gérer l'agence, sous la responsabilité de Gwyn Jones, CEO du groupe BBH.  

Le secteur de la publicité et des communications interactives sur mobile enregistre actuellement une croissance spectaculaire, en raison de la convergence des technologies et de l'expansion massive des smartphones. Selon eMarketer, les dépenses publicitaires mondiales sur mobile atteindront $6,4 milliards en 2012 et dépasseront les $23,6 milliards d'ici à 2016. Le grand savoir-faire de Monterosa dans le domaine du mobile et sa présence sur plusieurs continents, apporteront à BBH une expertise essentielle dans un secteur clé, qui est l'un des médias à la plus forte croissance.

"Les smartphones sont des outils omniprésents et très personnels. De ce fait, les campagnes sur mobile transforment la communication avec les consommateurs » déclare Gwyn Jones, CEO du groupe BBH. « La publicité sur mobile doit être perçue comme unique, utile et pertinente, afin qu'elle soit efficace. Il est indispensable d'aider nos clients à préparer des campagnes qui ne soient pas simplement impeccables du point de vue technique et créatif, mais également conviviales et réussies. Nous travaillons avec Monterosa depuis 18 mois maintenant. C'est une excellente équipe, avec une culture et une démarche correspondant parfaitement aux nôtres. Nous sommes très satisfaits des perspectives qu'ouvre cette transaction stratégique. »

"Nos deux entreprises partagent la même passion : trouver des idées très créatives, différentes, exécutées avec le plus grand soin technologique. Cet accord va nous permettre de faire monter en gamme nos prestations » ajoute Carl Norberg.

It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...
The Industrial Internet revolution is now underway, enabled by connected machines and billions of devices that communicate and collaborate.
