Dentsu strengthens presence in West Africa; acquires two agencies in Ghana

MUMBAI: In a bid to strengthen its position in West Africa, Dentsu Aegis Network has acquired two Ghana based media agencies namely Adams Media Ghana Limited and Premier Media Company GH Limited.


The acquisition, which will take the form of the purchase by Dentsu Aegis Network of a 59.62 per cent shareholding in Adams Media, with Premier Media as a wholly owned subsidiary of Adams Media, will strengthen the Dentsu Group’s presence in West Africa.


Adams Media was founded in 2009 and Premier Media in 1999, and both companies provide services to a large number of multinational clients. After acquisition of the shareholding by Dentsu Aegis Network, Adams Media will be rebranded Carat, and Premier Media rebranded Vizeum, collectively forming Dentsu Aegis Network Ghana.


Carat and Vizeum are two of the Dentsu Group’s eight global network brands. Both Adams Media and Premier Media have extensive mass media and digital media planning and buying capabilities, and these will be fully utilized in the provision of cutting-edge media solutions by the new entity.


In terms of economic scale, Ghana is second only to Nigeria in West Africa, and the International Monetary Fund has estimated that Ghana will achieve GDP growth of from 3.5 to 9.2 per cent between 2015 and 2020. Together with Media Fuse, the Nigerian company with which Dentsu Aegis Network entered into a joint venture agreement in August 2014, Dentsu Aegis Network Ghana will function as the Group’s hub in West Africa and Central Africa.
