. As a result of the deal, Edenred will hold a 64% stake in the holding company. The €50 million transaction will enable Edenred to pursue its growth in France's employee benefits market and expand its offering for beneficiaries.

ProwebCE offers a comprehensive range of solutions for works councils, which includes management and accounting software and an e-commerce platform that enables employees to use the funds allocated to them annually by their works council to purchase culture and leisure-related goods and services. Through this platform, employees can order gift vouchers or cards and take advantage of discounts on more than one million products and services offered by partnered merchants. With a portfolio of more than 7,000 clients, representing 5 million employee beneficiaries, ProwebCE generated €8 million in EBITDA[2]:

Through this transaction, Edenred is strengthening its presence in the works council market, which is estimated at more than €15 billion. The alliance will enable Edenred to expand its employee benefits offering and will create new growth opportunities thanks to the sales synergies between the two companies.

"We are very pleased to be strengthening our ties with ProwebCE," said Jacques Stern, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Edenred. "Works councils occupy a key position on the French employee benefits market and, thanks to Patrice Thiry and his management team, ProwebCE has become a recognized expert and leader in this field, making it the ideal partner to help us develop this high-potential business."

"We are delighted to be joining forces with Edenred, the world leader in prepaid corporate services. This alliance will enable ProwebCE to speed up the development of its business with works councils and their beneficiaries," said Patrice Thiry, founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ProwebCE.

The transaction is subject to approval by French competition authorities and will be accretive to earnings from 2015.
