Black Tiger sells its B2B business to Roularta Media Group

Press release

Paris, 19th July 2021, 5.45 pm

Black Tiger Belgium is divesting its B2B business to Roularta Media Group, thereby initiating a transfer of historical competences and clients to the multimedia group, the market leader in magazines, local media in Flanders and business TV channels.

The Black Tiger Belgium entity, part of the Black Tiger Group, will divest its B2B business in favor of a major player in the Belgian multimedia market, the Roularta Media Group. This transfer of competences and clients marks the end of an era for Black Tiger Belgium and for the whole Group, which will now focus on its activities as a software publisher and B2C data expert.

Nearly 163 customers enter or expend their relationships with Roularta. The handover will take place under the watchful eye of Natalie Versluys, current business consultant at Black Tiger Belgium, who will manage the transition in the migration of systems, the transfer of skills and clients and will guarantee the maintenance of the operational quality of current services. Out of all of these clients, the activities of approximatively twenty of them included both B2B and B2C services. In those specific cases, Black Tiger Belgium, through its Head of Sales Premium, Fabrice Willem, will maintain the same level of B2C services as before the sale.

Black Tiger is pleased with the conclusion of this sale to Roularta Media Group. The Belgian multimedia group shares Black Tiger's values of innovation, growth and quality and is an undisputed leader in the print and audiovisual sectors in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. It is therefore, with great confidence in the continuity and prosperity of its B2B clients, that the Black Tiger Group is handing over its activities to the eminent Roeselare multimedia group, as Anne-Tania DESMETTRE and Burt RISKÉ have stated:

“We are very pleased with the completion of the transfer of our B2B business to Roularta Media Group. When we decided to concentrate on our B2C business by selling our B2B clients, we quickly chose the Belgian group RMG, which has a solid reputation in the multimedia market. We know how reliable and professional Roularta Group is,  having worked with them for several years. We are therefore convinced that we can entrust our clients to them, as one of the best players on the market. ” Anne-Tania DESMETTRE - CEO Black Tiger

"With the integration of Black Tiger, we are significantly expanding our B2B offering and strengthening our position in the business information market. The vision and know-how of our new colleagues are perfectly in line with our strategy. Trends Business Information was created through the merger of Trends Top and Euro DB. Both were partners of Bisnode Belgium at the time. We are therefore convinced that we will be able to help our existing and new customers achieve their business objectives even better.” Burt RISKÉ - General Manager Trends Business Information
