Important Announcement from Cint

27 October 2021

To all our valued Customers and Partners,

Today I am excited to announce that the Cint Group entered into an agreement to acquire U.S. based Lucid Holdings LLC. The proposed transaction is subject to customary conditions and approvals and is expected to close by the end of 2021. Until the transaction is completed, Cint and Lucid will remain separate independent companies, and will not begin integrating or acting as a single company in any way.

Cint and Lucid are complementary leaders in the insights industry, helping insights-driven companies unlock substantial efficiencies across their value chains. Us coming together will be a transformational step change for Cint. The combined organisation will be a global leader in technology-enabled insights, and further strengthen Cint’s current proven business model.

I am thrilled to welcome Patrick Comer and the entire team at Lucid to the Cint family. Together we will continue to serve our industry’s demand for digitalisation and the need for faster, more cost-effective, and scalable technology solutions.

A press release on this transaction is made available on our website at https://investors.cint.com/en/acquisition-of-lucid

The news today will not have any impact on Cint’s day-to-day deliverables to our customers, partners, suppliers or to any other stakeholders. It will be business as usual.

Thank you,

Tom Buehlmann

CEO, Cint
