Business Wire Enters into News Distribution and Sales Agreement with iSentia, the Asia Pacific Region's Leading Media Information/Business Intelligence Company

NEW YORK & SYDNEY--()--Business Wire will leverage the comprehensive and dynamically updated media databases of iSentia -- the largest media information/business intelligence company in the Asia Pacific region -- to significantly expand its news distribution reach in the Australia and New Zealand markets, it was announced today.

The new arrangement will provide Business Wire members with precision targeting of industry trade journalists, in addition to full-scale coverage of mainstream and online media. Additionally, Business Wire reaches key Australasia media via its access to the global networks of The Associated Press and Agence France-Presse.

With some 1,200 employees operating across 15 countries, iSentia has earned its reputation as Asia's leading media resource center, with granular contact information on more than 10,000 print, broadcast and online outlets.

A key benefit of the collaboration between the two industry leaders is iSentia's ability to market Business Wire's media and investor relations services to its 5,000 clients. With Business Wire's Sydney office available to provide product counseling and consultative support, iSentia clients will gain seamless access to Business Wire's global media networks and investor relations services.

"iSentia's continuously refreshed media data maximizes the return-on-investment potential for our clients," said Cathy Baron Tamraz, Business Wire's CEO, who made today's announcement. "Of equal importance, iSentia's impressive client base will now be able to reach consumer audiences, business decision-makers, and investors in North America, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa, in addition to all of the Asia Pacific region, with ease."
