Visto, the Enterprise Ad Hub for programmatic media, today announced that it has received an offer from Zeta Global to acquire the assets of the business. By acquiring Visto, Zeta intends to leverage both the Visto hub assets and team to further bolster its strengths as a data-driven marketing technology company that operates the largest independent Marketing and Data Cloud.
The transaction will be conducted as part of a voluntary Chapter 11 restructuring process filed yesterday with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York with Zeta Global serving as the stalking horse bid. Visto believes it has substantial market value to strategic buyers and that today’s offer provides a competitive baseline to evaluate subsequent offers and maximize value to all of its stakeholders. Visto and its advisors remain in discussions with Zeta Global and other interested parties to conduct due diligence to finalize proposals, offers, and bids as part of a competitive auction process proposed to the Court. Visto expects to conclude the process in January 2019.
