Investis Launches Record Number of Corporate Websites in Summer of 2006

(Investis) Oct. 2, 2006 - Investis Ltd., Europe’s largest provider of online corporate communications solutions, has launched a record 15 new corporate websites across Europe this summer including sites for two of the UK’s largest companies.

The list of companies who together are worth more than £15 billion (EUR 22 billion) includes Home Retail Group plc – owner of retailers Argos and Homebase – and mobile phone operator Virgin Mobile plc. In Europe, Investis put corporate sites live for Italian biotech company Recordati SpA, Italian bank Banca Profilo SpA, Danish food services group EAC A/S and Luxembourg-based investment company Prologis European Properties SA.

This strong burst of activity further reinforces Investis’ position as the market-leading online corporate communications specialist for publicly quoted companies in Europe. It also signals an increasing desire among companies to be innovative, creative and forward-thinking when it comes to their corporate websites as they opt for more interactive tools and richer content such as video and audio to engage the user.

Investis’ combination of corporate communications experience and advanced technology platform has enabled it to provide a gilt-edged service for its clients helping them to meet their communications needs and be recognized as meeting best practice standards. Investis clients accounted for 35% of the top quartile of the Financial Times 2005 Best Corporate Website Rankings of Europe’s 150 largest publicly quoted companies.

Justin Walters, Investis Chief Executive Officer, commented: “This is a new record for us, and we’re obviously thrilled with the growing number of companies that are enlisting our help with their corporate websites. We take pride not only in delivering the best site for each client’s specific needs but in continuing to work with them to keep them ahead of the competition with the latest products and industry developments.”
