The company Artprice is now listed on the SBF 120 and has crossed the 2 million customers threshold
PARIS, December 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
After the close of markets on 21 December 2012, ARTPRICE joined the prestigious SBF
120 index. Following the quarterly review of the Euronext Paris indices, the meeting of
the Scientific NYSE Euronext Committee for Indices decided to admit Artprice.com into the
CAC Mid 60 and the SBF 120. The SBF 120 index is composed of the 120 largest French listed
companies, including the CAC 40 companies and the country’s 80 most liquid stocks.
The current liquidity of the Artprice share is 3.83 million euros per day calculated
over 440 trading days (amounting to a total of 1.688 billion euros).
Thierry Ehrmann, founder and CEO of Artprice, wishes to inform its shareholders and
the market that in accordance with the company’s forecasts at the start of 2012, Artprice
crossed the threshold of two million customers on 18 December 2012.
In 2013, Google and Baidu (China) will have direct access to all Artprice databases
As announced in its last press release, in early December Artprice began making
available a very large part of the structure of its databases and its Market Art
standardization as freeware online (free proprietary software license, but with certain
usage restrictions), mainly via Google and Baidu (China).
Artprice is thus continuing – without any negative impact on its turnover or earnings
- to acquire new customers (with accompanying behavioural logs) in the framework of its
integration of Big Data implemented in early 2012.
Artprice now has a colossal customer database with records of over 18 billion logs -
in full compliance with the regulations of the European and American authorities -
allowing it to know exactly what each of its clients is looking for and/or possesses
through its Data Mining activities over the past nine years. This system has recently been
enhanced by the use of Big Data .
All the industrial processes comprising Artprice’s databanks are registered and
protected, notably via patents filed with the -Agence de Protection des Programmes-
(A.P.P.) (Software Protection Agency).
-Lex Google- is not really the right answer in the global digital economy.
The relationship between Google and Artprice is contractual and dates back to 2003. It
is in itself, proof that -Lex Google- is not really the right answer in the global digital
economy. In 2013, Artprice aims, mainly with Google and Baidu (China) in their various
languages, to post about 210 million standardised free Art Market data online without
impacting its sales and earnings and to be active at the core of the market via its
fixed-price and auction-based Standardised Marketplace.
Indeed, in the context of its contractual agreements with Google, several hundreds of
millions of standardised and free Artprice data have been made available on Internet since
early December 2012.
