Mobile app management business Airnow, which has a base in Leeds, has acquired a US business in a multimillion-dollar deal.
MightySignal is a mobile app and SDK (software development kit) intelligence provider. Following the deal, it will continue to be headed-up by long-standing chief executive Ryan Buckley.
The deal is the most recent in a series of acquisitions for Airnow, which has purchased Priori Data, Airpush and Abilott over the past five years.
MightySignal is set to further strengthen Airnow’s data capabilities in the SDK and ad intelligence space.
James Eggleston, co-founder and chief operating officer at Airnow, said: “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.”
MightySignal Ryan Buckley, 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.”
