BMG Rights Management's French operation has acquired the Music Addict Publishing catalog and Editions PRK Music.

The catalogs contain songs recorded by artists like Yannick Noah, Celine Dion, Isabelle Boulay, Marc Lavoine, Natasha St Pier, Michel Sardou and Tina Arena.

"We are thrilled to become the publisher of these two exceptional catalogs," said Stéphane Berlow, managing director of BMG Rights Management France in Paris, in a statement. "We are particularly proud as this concerns songs that appeal to a large public which will ensure their long term popularity. We will make sure we develop their success further going forward.".

BMG refused to give any details about the price of the deal.

Following the acquisition of De Palmas's catalog Sur La Route and Editions Louis Chedid, this acquisition is the third one in France since the beginning of 2010 for BMG Rights Management.
