Latest edition – H1 2018, France: A leader in the media renaissance

In many ways, the media sector is living through a “renaissance” across the globe.  Technology is driving that process of new birth through re-invention, re-packaging and re-presenting. It affects media players, clients and audiences alike and is driving deal flow. In fact, combined media deal values were hovering around the US$80 billion mark at the midpoint in the year.

This edition shines the spotlight on the media industry in France, whilst also exploring global and UK media M&A activity including agency e-volution, music streaming and how new streaming kids are cutting out the middlemen and signing deals and buying business that will ensure they create, own and control their own content.
