Why Adtech Firm Tremor International Buys DSP Amobee For $239 Million
Tremor International, a video-focused advertising-technology company, is buying Singtel’s digital arm Amobee, a cross-channel, demand-side advertising platform, for $239 million. It will acquire Amobee’s Omnichannel Demand Side Platform and Advanced TV Platform.
Singtel first bought Amobee in 2012 for $321 million, making this latest deal quite a steal. Singtel says the divestment is in line with its strategic reset to revamp its business focus and recycle capital and assets into higher-returning growth areas. The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter.

How this acquisition benefits Tremor?
– The acquisition is expected to create one of the most compelling and scaled CTV and video end-to-end platforms in the market. It is expected to drive incremental financial growth within the first twelve months of completion.
– The deal is intended to expand Tremor’s demand-side market share. The transaction expands its self-service DSP, CTV, and video reach, while creating new technology and partnership opportunities, including the ability to integrate major linear capabilities.
– Over the past couple of years, Amobee has been branching out into advanced TV. Amobee uses CTV to supplement and support linear TV, which remains a large part of the market despite streaming.
– The combined company seeks to benefit from meaningful annual run-rate operating cost synergies. It would build upon Tremor’s proven track record of successfully integrating acquisitions to drive growth, scale, and long-term value for shareholders at attractive valuations.
– Ofer Druker, chief executive officer of Tremor International, said in a release that the deal “would increase our U.S. and international customer reach and data footprint, and drive more advertiser spend to our SSP [supply side platform] Unruly.”
Tremor International has scaled and deepened their strategic relationship through a $25 million in VIDAA, the smart TV operating system subsidiary of Chinese-based TV set maker Hisense Co. The company is looking to be a major player in TV OS as well as connected TV (CTV). With that deal, Unruly became VIDAA’s exclusive supply-side platform for North America, Europe, Canada, and Australia.
– It would expand Tremor’s international presence as Amobee currently serves over 500 global customers including McDonald’s, Johnson & Johnson, Verizon, and Comcast, and maintains strong relationships with some of the world’s leading media partners.
Tremor’s ad tech roll-up spree just got a whole lot deeper with Amobee’s inclusion.
