Yahoo Acquires Sparq, Will Shut It DownBy: Chris Crum - January 21, 2014
It’s been a couple weeks, so it was high time that Yahoo acquired another company. This time it’s Sparq, a mobile marketing company.
I am thrilled to announce that SPARQ has been acquired by Yahoo. We’ve come a long way from our humble beginnings and are proud to have created a service and product that has touched hundreds of millions of people.
We can’t thank our customers, investors, advisors, friends, and family enough for all of their support over the years. We are uber passionate about mobile – we’ve been striving to build the best mobile platform possible, and are excited to continue upon that goal with Yahoo. Words cannot describe how ecstatic we are to be joining such an amazing team with such an inspiring mission. We see endless opportunity ahead.
We will be terminating our current service, and are reaching out to existing customers with support details. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help during this transition period by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org .
Terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
Earlier this month, Yahoo announced its acquisition of Aviate.
