NeverBlue Ads, a Canadian performance marketing CPA network, has been acquired by fellow Canadian online marketing firm Vertrue. Also part of the acquisition is Neverblue Media’s sister company PhoneInterviewed.com, Inc., a direct phone contact center. Vertrue currently owns two other subsidiary companies based out of Canada, including the popular online dating services company, Lavalife Inc.
Neverblue Media will operate as a wholly-owned subsidiary company of Vertrue.
“We are excited to have Neverblue Media as a new subsidiary of Vertrue. Neverblue Media brings with them a specialized knowledge of the online marketplace and will be an integral part of bringing Vertrue into new areas of the Internet,” said Gary Johnson, President and CEO of Vertrue.
“We believe that this is a great opportunity to continue to service all of Neverblue Media’s current clients and further expand our client portfolio through Vertrue’s direct marketing expertise,” said Todd Dunlop, President of Neverblue Media.
2007 continues to bring about more acquisitions in the online ad space. Things will only continue to heat up as we enter the Spring months shortly. So, let’s start a wager on which CPA or affiliate networks will be acquired in the coming months.
Even their names rhyme (like possible future acquisitions??)…
