WPP announces that its wholly-owned operating company JWT, the global marketing communications agency, has acquired X-PRIME, a leading creative digital marketing company in France.

 

Founded in 2002 and employing around 50 people in Paris and Toulouse, the agency specialises in producing brand and corporate websites for all devices. Clients include Saint Gobain, Krug and Inwi.

 

X-PRIME's unaudited revenues for the year ended 31 December 2013 were EUR 4.7 million with gross assets of approximately EUR 3.2 million as at the same date.
