2DataFish is the first analytics consultancy in the region certified as a

Kim Hann, who will both continue in the business as co-directors. Current
2DataFish clients include Telstra, Virgin Australia, Commonwealth Bank,
Westpac, Fairfax Media, Suncorp Group, Energy Australia, Dick Smith, IAG and
GE Capital to name a few.

"We're pleased to welcome 2DataFish to the Razorfish Global family and
Publicis.Sapient platform," said Michael Karg, International CEO at Razorfish
Global. "This move positions us to accelerate growth in the Australian market
while building on a clear competitive advantage in our Intelligence Practice
through the addition of world-class talent, data analytics and customer
intelligence capabilities, technology platforms and intellectual property."

"2DataFish significantly boosts our data analytics capabilities, which are
critical to our ability to help clients transform their business. Clients
will now benefit from intensely specialised skills across data, technology,
insights, commerce and media that result in a truly holistic solution," said
Razorfish Australia Managing Director Doug Chapman.

2DataFish Founder Steven Hann added: "We are excited about the possibilities
that our combined talents can offer clients and proud to join forces with the
talented team at Razorfish Global."

2DataFish will complete its move into Razorfish Australia's Sydney offices by
the end of August 2015 and will maintain a separate brand name at this stage.
