Ymagis Group Announces New Partnership with Eutelsat for Content Delivery Arm DSAT Cinema

Ymagis Group (ISIN: FR0011471291, TICKER: MAGIS), the European specialist in digital technologies for the cinema industry, today announced it has reached an agreement with Eutelsat Communications (NYSE Euronext Paris ISIN: FR0010221234 TICKER: ETL) to strengthen the operational activities of their content delivery company DSAT Cinema (DSAT). Eutelsat and dcinex (Ymagis Group) have a 50.2% and 49.8% ownership stake in DSAT, respectively.

Under the deal, Ymagis’ content delivery business entity, Smartjog Ymagis Logistics ("SYL"), and DSAT will provide a single, fully-integrated business offer to clients. Combining SYL and DSAT’s respective networks of electronic receivers across Europe will create a very important network for content delivery, with 3,300 cinema sites currently connected. 

SYL will operate DSAT’s portfolio of activities on a day-to-day basis under the guidance of DSAT’s board of directors. The redeployment of content receivers and optimization of satellite capacities will be prioritized in order to achieve maximum efficiency. 

Eutelsat and dcinex will, remain shareholders of DSAT for a period of 15 months. At the end of this period, Ymagis may acquire Eutelsat shares in DSAT Cinema at a price reflecting the latter’s financial performance. 

Olivier Anstett, Director Media and Value Added Service at Eutelsat and Chairman of the Board of DSAT declared: "The European digital cinema market needs one strong electronic delivery player to ensure fast and reliable content delivery. We believe that large scale cinema content delivery can only be achieved on a sustainable basis, through satellite. This is why we are convinced that SYL is the right operational partner for DSAT Cinema and look forward to implementing this partnership". 

Jean Mizrahi, CEO and co-founder of Ymagis added: "This coming together of SYL and DSAT at an operational level is a prerequisite for the short-term success of our electronic content delivery service. It will allow us to offer enhanced services to both our distributor and movie exhibitor clients across Europe. Following the dcinex acquisition in October 2014, this agreement with Eutelsat is logical: to obtain full operational control and full ownership of DSAT in 15 months. This move offers an opportunity to reunite SYL and DSAT in 2016 under Ymagis’ management, optimize synergies and to create a global leader in electronic content delivery throughout Europe."
