Tremor Video Sells Buy-Side Platform to Taptica for $50M

Company will focus on programmatic sales

Ad tech company Tremor Video agreed to sell its buyer platform to Taptica International Ltd. for $50 million and plans to focus on programmatic sales for ads in premium video content.

Tremor Video said the move will give it resources to focus on connected TV and over-the-top and eliminates any perceived friction with third-party demand partners.

“The sale of our buyer platform allows us to focus our investment on the biggest growth-driver of our business,’ said Tremor chairman Paul Caine. “As consumers continue to shift their viewing behavior towards digital video and OTT, we believe there is a large market opportunity to capitalize on these trends as the leading pure play video SSP.”

Caine said he expects Tremor and Taptica to work together in the future.
