Agency.com had bought a minority stake in Pictoris Interactive back in October 1999, and, at that time, had gotten an option to purchase the rest of the 55-employee company.
It exercised that option this week, in an effort to strengthen the company's European presence at a time when US Internet companies are scrambling to establish themselves overseas.
"The acquisition of Pictoris positions Agency.com Paris as a leading interactive agency in the French market and is an important extension to our European capabilities, a key growth area of the company," says Chan Suh, chairman and chief executive officer of Agency.com.
That company yesterday acquired another Swedish consultancy, and says half of its workforce is deployed in Europe. Razorfish has offices in Amsterdam, Hamburg, Helsinki, London, Mannheim, Oslo, and Stockholm.
