Creating a global content distribution platform via operators, capable of addressing more than 1 billion user market in emerging and developed countries, on both B2B and B2C segments.”

Digital Virgo

21 Centrale Partners was at the origin of Digital Virgo’s creation in 2008, equally and alongside Eric Peyre, its CEO. Today, the group is an international player and a leader in the distribution and monetization of digital content.

Working across a network of 140 telecom operators to address a 1.3 billion user market, Digital Virgo offers a broad portfolio of premium content B2C as well as B2B services, most notably audience monetization for leading international telecom and media players.

Backed by 21 Centrale Partners and led by Eric Peyre, Digital Virgo has extended its international presence (28 countries today, compared to 8 at entry), completed 8 build-ups for innovative, technological expertise or to access new markets, diversified and expanded the product offer (VOD, social networks, games and infotainment) and dramatically grew sales.

In July 2016, the shareholder reorganization, carried out through an MBO led by Eric Peyre and his team, saw Sofival and BNP Paribas Development enter the capital of Digital Virgo, while ensuring liquidity for the participation of 21 Centrale Partners.

We understood as early as 2008 that the digital economy was transforming the world. Digital Virgo allowed us, thanks to an excellent entrepreneur and team, to create an international platform able to meet the needs of an evolving and fast growing market. This is only the beginning of Digital Virgo’s growth story and we are pleased to have allowed the management to reinforce its position and the entry of new partners around the table. ”
