Following an open divestiture process, ownership of Cité Numérique and its two brands – Quais de l’image and Naos Publishing – has been transferred to two industrial groups operating in the same sector of activity: ComClever, a group with three companies specialising in the production of digital communication solutions (ViewOn, Krealid and SVD) and Imalliance, a group specialising in image production – photos, videos, 3D images – with 3 studios under its name Studio Collet, Donkeyshot and Paul et Berthe.
Cité Numérique focused its expertise on the production
of creative and innovative content for brand communication for leading names in
retail and e-commerce and by combining its story-telling, recording,
formatting, hosting and broadcasting diffusion skills, Cité Numérique has
become the leading images platform in France. With 6,000m² of permanent studio
space, the company delivers 14,000 visuals – photos, videos, 3D images –,
180,000 product information documents and publishes 80,000 pages per year.
3SI Group decided to transfer ownership of Cité Numérique to a partner company also specialising in image-related solutions to enable Cité Numérique to strengthen its position on the market and give it the opportunity to expand and boost its investment in imaging techniques and technologies. “Joining forces with industrial partners from the same sector puts Quais de l’image and Naos Publishing in a position to benefit on different fronts from strong commercial, technical and human synergies and guarantee a future for both the company and its teams” declared Denis Terrien, 3SI Group Chairman.
The transfer of Cité Numérique will take effect on June 30 without any impact on the workforce.
