127% growth in internet business

Successful integration of Pulpmedia, one of the 5 French leading Search Marketing agencies among the just 10 accredited by Google and Yahoo. Pulpmedia and the News Invest Group are going to benefit from the inevitable development of sponsored links in the strategic universe of Finance.

Our "internet financial marketing" positioning has been borne out

With an innovative positioning that combines consulting, targeting and recruiting new shareholders/clients, the total internet marketing offering has been highly successful with many clients, both listed and unlisted on the stock market.

The AMF has officially registered Actusnews Wire as a primary provider of regulated information.

After anticipating more than three years ago the transposition of the European Transparency Directive, the Actusnews Wire department specialised in the electronic dissemination of press releases has been rewarded for its hard work as it now counts more than 100 recurring clients and more than 6 million web surfers reached in France.

Satisfactory 2007 outlook
The fact that new institutional investors have acquired a stake in the Company has helped build up the Group's equity. Equity stood at ¤6.42 million at 31 December 2006, up 38% over the year.
Management intends to further improve the Group's valuation by maintaining a good level of profitability in 2007. The share of revenue posted by internet operations should continue to grow further, bearing out its innovative internet financial marketing strategy. The Group will benefit from a favourable regulatory environment for internet-based communication, via its subsidiary Actusnews Wire, and synergies with Pulpmedia, set to make a contribution to 2007 income in excess of ¤300 K.
Drawing on its financial solidity, News Invest will seize every opportunity of making a strategic acquisition in order to accelerate its development.
