Mediaocean Acquires Flashtalking For A Reported $500 Million

Mediaocean Acquires Flashtalking For A Reported $500 Million
Mediaocean will buy independent global ad server Flashtalking to establish a "neutral tech platform" with a combined annual media spend of $200 billion.

According to The Wall Street Journal, it will pay $500 million for the New York-based company, which has annual revenue of between $100 and $150 million.

Mediaocean provides advertising workflow software that drives $70 billion in television advertising in the United States, but it is also actively pursuing programmatic opportunities. The deal with Flashtalking comes exactly a year after it paid $200 million for programmatic buying platform 4C. 4C has integrations with Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Amazon, and other platforms, placing Mediaocean squarely in the programmatic arena.

The acquisition will combine Flashtalking's ad serving, creative, identity, and verification capabilities with Mediaocean's media planning and buying capabilities across desktop, mobile web, in-app, and CTV/OTT. It is expected to close in the third quarter of this year. Integrating Flashtalking's dynamic creative optimization with the 4C solution, in particular, will enable marketers to utilize dynamic creative in both open and walled gardens. In addition, the merged platform will have over a trillion monthly ad impressions.

In 2018, Mediaocean and Flashtalking partnered to connect ad serving data with media buying.

As CTV adopts some of the features of new media's walled gardens, the companies emphasized the independence of their integrated tech platform as an alternative to Big Tech providers such as Google's ad server.

Google’s AI advertising revolution: More privacy, but problems remain

Google | March 16, 2021

In March 2021, Google announced that it was ending support for third-party cookies, and moving to “a more privacy first web.” Even though the move was expected within the industry and by academics, there is still confusion about the new model, and cynicism about whether it truly constitutes the kind of revolution in online privacy that Google claims. To assess this, we need to understand this new model and what is changing. The current advertising technology (adtech) approach is one in which platform corporations give us a “free” service in exchange for our data. The data is collected via third-party cookies downloaded to our devices, that allow a brows...
