London app management specialist acquires US data firm in multi-million dollar deal
A London app management firm has announced its acquisition of an American mobile intelligence firm in a multi-million dollar deal.
Airnow, which provides global solutions to help publishers scale their apps, has acquired mobile app and SDK intelligence provider, MightySignal, based in the US.
This is the most recent in a series of acquisitions for Airnow, which in the past five years has purchased Priori Data, Airpush and Abilott.
Both companies have said that the acquisition will allow them to expand, with MightySignal commenting that it will benefit from the more detailed data Airnow provides, and Airnow noting the benefits of MightySignal’s SDK detection technology.
James Eggleston, co-founder and COO at Airnow, commented: “We’re delighted to welcome Ryan and his fantastic team of highly skilled specialists to the Airnow family.
“Our business exists to benefit developers at every stage of their journey, and as the mobile app industry continues to grow at a tremendous rate, the addition of MightySignal and its unique benefits will only serve to power our customers’ capabilities.
“MightySignal offers a primary source of SDK intelligence, with the firm extracting data without reliance on third parties.
“This proprietary SDK detection technology, combined with the app store data scraping capabilities from AppMonsta, which the business acquired in February 2020, is a perfect fit with Airnow’s growth goals.”
Ryan Buckley, CEO of MightySignal, added: “We’re excited to have finally found a partner who believes in the importance of accurate mobile intelligence as much as we do.
“MightySignal entered the mobile data market as a leader in SDK intelligence and we recognised that to best serve our customers, we needed to offer more detailed app and publisher data. Under the Airnow Group, we can finally fulfill that vision.”
