Dentsu Inc. (Tokyo: 4324; ISIN: JP3551520004; President & CEO: Toshihiro Yamamoto; Head Office: Tokyo; Capital: 74,609.81 million yen) announced today that its global business headquarters Dentsu Aegis Network Ltd.*, has reached an agreement to acquire a 100% stake in Re:Production Limited (Head Office: Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, UK ; Managing Partners: Stephen Hunneysett and Philip  Greenwood), a UK production company.

Founded in 2010, Re:Production delivers high-quality production solutions for TV commercials, animation and idents, and radio from its dedicated studios in Newcastle. The agency employs 12 people who work with leading directors to create award-winning productions for advertising agencies and brands across the UK.
