The success of Parisian ad tech company Criteo has a big impact on how French tech companies conduct business. More startups in France are angling their way into the U.S. where they can access a bigger market and raise more capital from venture capitalists.
As consumers, we are deluged with marketing messages everywhere we go. Every day, our email inboxes are flooded with hundreds of new emails we’ll never open, because they contain information about products and services we’ll never buy. Yet, email remains one of the highest performing online media channels for marketers. The good news for consumers and brands alike is that the world of email is changing. Structural shifts have created space for a new breed of programmatic email providers, giving marketers the ability to reach consumers with relevant, personalized communications.

Lately the tech industry has been a bit of funk, at least with Wall Street. But there are some operators that seem to be immune, such as Criteo.

During the latest quarter, revenues jumped by 36 percent to $401 million and there was also a hefty profit. So to this end, I recently had a chance to talk to James Smith, who is the EVP of Americas for Criteo.
Starting a company has its ups and downs, highs and lows. The same can be said for any job, and any leadership position—even in a large organization. But when starting a business, especially a tech one, things move quickly—often too quickly. Ultimately, running a company boils down to one thing: transparent and consistent communication.
Criteo announced the launch of Criteo Dynamic Mail on Thursday, a predictive email marketing solution that delivers product recommendations based on a customer's previous browsing behavior and purchase history. Criteo Dynamic Email adds a finite email targeting solution to the performance marketing company’s suite of advertising technology products for online retailers.
Criteo Southeast Asia managing director Yuko Saito explains that the firm helps e-commerce players boost sales by sending personalized and relevant messages to consumers.
Mobile has given a new lease of life to email marketing, and it's too good an opportunity to ignore with messages that are neither well targeted or personalised. That was a point sent home by Sylvain Piquet, VP of strategy for Email at Criteo when we chatted about today's release of its Dynamic Email service. It's essentially an upgrade to the retargeting email service the company already offers. This allows a brand to put their goods back in front of someone whom they didn't recognise, although they browsed without buying, or who looked for products they sell on another publisher's site who has permission to email them with a trusted partner's offer.
Online specialty luggage retailer eBags is looking to attract “new” shoppers with what has come to be considered an “old” technology platform. eBags is deploying the Criteo Dynamic Email solution to pair anonymous behavioral data with third-party, permission-based email addresses from Criteo’s publisher network.

Who would have predicted that by 2016, one in three digital retail transactions would take place on a mobile device and that consumers would be turning to apps to buy things like new shoes for same-day delivery? More importantly, what if you could have predicted it? A lot has changed in the past 10 years, so retailers are wondering: what will the next ten years bring? Criteo teamed up with Ovum to take a look at what the landscape will look like in the years ahead, and to predict what’s to come across five key elements in 2026.
Online home furniture retailer Made.com has been trialing its showroom strategy in bricks and mortar stores since 2014, and in that time has seen footfall rates of over 10,000 per month, with the company eventually hoping to use Bluetooth-enabled beacons to enhance customer experience both in-store and online.

Online ads are like ants at a picnic. All they want is your food. And if you let them have it, they come back with their friends. France’s Criteo (CRTO) is an advertising technology operation that earns advertisers’ business by electronically mapping a consumer’s behavior, and using that map to ash online ads that “predict and recommend” the products a consumer wants. Criteo is deeply engaged in the complex, data-mining realm that revolves around the new world language of geo-targeting, post-click tracking, interstitial ads and frequency capping.
We all need to purchase goods and services to live life in a modern economy, and how we get those goods and services is changing. As a global economic force, the PC is out and the smartphone is in, says marketing executive Molie Spilman.
If Instagram adopts the rumored algorithm, the new experience will be in line with likes of its parent company, Facebook, and Pinterest. Instagram’s change would not be unfamiliar and is arguably a move to better engage consumers that want a personalized experience. Influencers, brands, and consumers should be excited. Here’s why.
That consumer browsing and buying behavior of travel is changing is now fact. In many places, the days of researching and booking a holiday on a single device is a thing of a past. Criteo’s Jon Hudson pens a guest post to share data gleaned from analyzing billions of travel transactions.
You just received a message from a friend to check out a video on YouTube. As you open the link, you’re not directed to the video like you expect. Instead, you’re prompted to watch a pre-play commercial about something you care little about. Ultimately, you’re being held hostage by an annoying ad, and you can’t do anything about it. I’m often asked about ad blocking and what we think at Criteo, where we deliver personalized online ads on behalf of clients. The way we see it, the ad blocking conversation is a win for the industry, and here’s why.
Last month, Facebook launched its new Reactions buttons, allowing its 1.6 billion users to express how they feel about status updates, check-ins and other content-driven posts that appear in their news feeds. Six animated emojis represent the following feelings: like, love, ha ha, wow, sad and angry. Though seemingly a light move, the launch of Reactions actually represents a major shift for the digital ad industry.

As brands enter 2016 eager to capitalize on today’s tech-savvy, Internet-friendly mobile shoppers, which retailers are going to be the next generation of e-commerce winners? The following article highlights a few secrets to success for building the next e-tailer empire.
Nearly 40 percent of all global travelers shop for travel on mobile devices and complete transactions on mobile about a third of the time, with mobile transactions up three percent year-over-year as of the fourth quarter 2015. That’s according to Criteo, which analyzed more than 1.7 billion global travel and retail transactions from 3,300 business amounting to $720 billion in sales.
As mobile increasingly becomes an established channel for purchasing, retailers with strong smartphone shopping experiences are experiencing nearly double the growth rate in share of transactions, according to a new report released today by Criteo.
Apps consume 90% of our smartphone time. They're also increasingly consuming our bank balances. According to new shopping data from Criteo, mobile phones are displacing desktops as the digital shopping medium of choice. They're also increasingly taking the place of physical visits to stores—according to the National Retail Federation, more shoppers polled went online (103 million) than to stores (102 million) over the Thanksgiving/Black Friday weekend.
The results are in, and there is no question about what is happening with mobile retail. According to a new study of 1.4 billion online transactions during fourth quarter 2015 from marketing technology provider Criteo, mobile transaction share grew 15% from the same quarter the prior year. Mobile transactions accounted for 30% of all online transactions in the quarter.
Today's consumers are increasingly demanding meaningful, one-to-one experiences with brands, causing personalized marketing to reach tipping point. Moreover, the need for brands to deliver meaningful consumer journeys led to a surge in the adoption of performance advertising. Fortunately, marketers have new tools necessary to execute successful digital strategies. But those new tools present unique obstacles in terms of implementation and integration with existing advertising campaigns like social marketing or paid advertising. To find out how brands this year are investing and succeeding with performance marketing and overcoming its challenges, we commissioned Forrester Consulting to survey just over 150 marketers in the US, UK, France, and Germany.
Following a brutal 2015 for publicly traded ad platform companies (at least those not named Facebook or Alphabet), the first month of 2016 was, well, not much better. That is until Wednesday, when Criteo reported Q4 revenue growth of 55%, to $407 million (362 million euros). Additionally, the company crossed two symbolic milestones, hitting $1 billion in revenue for the year and surpassing 10,000 clients. Earnings release.
Last June, shares in advertising tech specialist Criteo plunged 7% after Apple declared its intention to add ad-blocking technology to the mobile edition of its Safari browser. Despite that looming threat, Criteo’s mobile revenue is exploding, based on its 2015 financial results issued Tuesday. The company also added 900 customers in the past quarter, reaching 10,000 accounts, and crossed the €1 billion annual revenue mark for the first time.
While the year has been mostly crummy for tech stocks, Criteo (CRTO) has been able to buck the trend. On news of its latest earnings report, the stock price is up a sizzling 20% in early trading. In fact, the company has exceeded $1 billion in revenues for the past year and there continues to be hefty free cash flow generation. Not bad for a company that got its start back in 2005.
Paris-based retargeting firm Criteo exceeded €1 billion (which, according to exchange rates, nets out at more than $1 billion) in revenue for the first time last year, according to its earning call today. The company, which hereafter will report its earnings in dollars instead of euros, integrates with e-commerce sites to monitor activity and use that data to serve relevant ads.
Criteo posted its full-year 2015 results on Wednesday and the firm is continuing to show it is the star-performer of the ad tech sector. The company's revenue crossed $1 billion for the first time — far outpacing the majority of the other publicly-traded ad tech companies.
Most of us in the industry know well that programmatic advertising allows marketers to clearly define budgets, set goals, and apply attribution models for campaigns while the technology does all the work. Algorithms do the heavy lifting, analyzing variables in real time to determine the right campaign settings. If you ask online marketing professionals, they’ll say programmatic works, which is why it has maintained its dominance in the ad space. So what exactly are the factors driving programmatic’s growth?
