­Marketing technology leader Eskimoz pursues its European expansion with the acquisition of German-based Semtrix

Clipperton and Natixis Partners acted as financial advisors to Eskimoz, a Martech leader specialized in web traffic acquisition, in their acquisition of German-based Semtrix, an SEO services leader, in a joint mandate.
Following the successive takeovers of Sembox in Italy and Digital Uncut in the UK, and  a successful organic expansion in Spain, Eskimoz reinforces with Semtrix its pan-European leading position in marketing technology.

Founded in 2015 by Andréa Bensaid and backed by Momentum Invest since 2020, Eskimoz is the one-stop shop for web traffic acquisition, providing tech-enabled services (SEO, SEA, Content Creation, Data) to scale-ups and blue chips aiming to boost their organic growth.

Eskimoz brings an innovative response to the complex challenges of digital commerce leveraging data, AI, and operational excellence.

Eskimoz serves c. 1000 customers in a wide range of sectors, from luxury goods to tech and real estate. The group recorded consolidated sales of c. 30 million euros in 2023, undergoing strong growth.
Clipperton and Natixis Partners orchestrated the financing process.

“With offices in Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Brussels, Madrid, Milan, London, and now in Düsseldorf, we can support our customers all over Europe with native consultants“ explained Andréa Bensaid, CEO and Founder of Eskimoz.

Jan-Nicolas Kulh, Founder of Semtrix, noted: „Partnering with Eskimoz marks a strategic evolution for Semtrix. Our strong foothold in Germany, combined with Eskimoz’s extensive network, elevates our ability to offer an even more international and data-driven client acquisition strategy to our clients.“

Alain Cochenet, Founding Partner at Momentum Invest, commented: „With this acquisition, Eskimoz further asserts its unique ability to consolidate the market at the European level and to continuously reinforce its leadership position. We are particularly grateful to Clipperton and Natixis Partners for their support in this transaction.“
