AVG Purchases Its French Distributor

AVG UK And Ireland : 19 April, 2010  (Company News)
Commitment to the French speaking market drives AVG Technologies to purchase Square, the existing distributor of the French version of AVG Antivirus
AVG Technologies, developers of free anti-virus software, have announced the purchase of Square, currently the exclusive distributor of the French version of AVG Antivirus, and the opening of its office in France. Since 2001, AVG offerings have been distributed exclusively across France and in several other French-speaking countries by Square through the avgfrance.com Internet site and a network of specialized resellers. More than 110 million users worldwide protect their computers and networks with free or paid products from AVG.

Today, AVG Technologies has nearly 6000 partners, distributors and resellers across the world, including 800 of them in mainland France. More than 150,000 users, with an overall combined total of more than one million PCs in France, are protected by AVG products. The company headquarters of Square, now known as AVG Technologies France, is located in the town of Anglet in the south west of France.

"The decision to purchase Square to begin establishing offices in France was a logical one, given that Square has always been marketing our solutions locally. By establishing a local presence in France, we continue to show our commitment to the French domestic market," said J R Smith, CEO, AVG Technologies. "The strong success of AVG, both with general consumers as well as small businesses, administrative bodies, local authorities and other organizations, is further proof of AVG's leadership solution in terms of quality, performance and price."

"I am very happy with AVG Technologies' acquisition of Square, as France represents a key market for us," said Thierry Bonhomme, former CEO of Square and General Manager of AVG Technologies France. "This will allow us to more rapidly expand our market share and improve even more on the service quality that we provide to our customers - it's a very motivating time."

Smith added, "A significant proportion of this success is achieved thanks to our partner network, all of whom daily enjoy the benefits provided by our AVG solutions marketing programs."
