Outlook

Over the next few years, Invibes Advertising plans to continue its growth trajectory, driven by a digital advertising sector energized by the rise of digitalization in all business sectors.

Invibes’ growth strategy revolves around 6 major strategic levers:

  • Acceleration of existing countries.
  • The opening of new countries.
  • Strengthening of its technological platform.
  • Deployment of technological services for its strategic customers.
  • The launch of a 100% self-service platform dedicated to SMEs.
  • The development of its subsidiary ML2Grow, specializing in business services for Big Data and artificial intelligence projects.

This aggressive strategy will allow Invibes Advertising to reach its ambition of 100 million euros in revenue by 2024, representing an average annual growth rate (CAGR) between 2020 and 2024 of approximately +72%. While a significant portion of this growth should be achievable organically, it could also include some M&A activity.
