According to the terms of the agreement and subject to the fulfillment of conditions precedent, Ymagis Group would become the sole shareholder of ST’501. 

"Since its founding in 1996, ST’501 has earned an irreproachable reputation in the marketplace and among its clients, including several large broadcasters in France. It has remained consistently innovative, providing as early as 2008 live TV and corporate event broadcast subtitling services,” said Jean Mizrahi, Ymagis Group CEO & Chairman. “This partnership would allow us to bolster our current subtitling & accessibility offer and expand operations in our content services business segment.”
