Charlesbank Investment

In December 2021, Charlesbank’s Technology Opportunities Fund acquired a minority interest in Mediaocean as part of a majority recapitalization led by CVC Capital Partners. The Company has a track record of organic growth and successful M&A. Through this recapitalization, Mediaocean will be well-positioned to continue pursuing its multiple organic growth avenues and building the preeminent consolidation platform in the advertising technology industry.
