Through this majority stake, JCDecaux will become the number one in billboard advertising in Belgium, strengthening its existing positions. The assets of Dewez, specialized in long-term local advertising billboards, complement JCDecaux’s current assets in Belgium, and will significantly increase its billboard offering by extending outside the main city centers.
