New York, NY – June 12, 2018  – Progress Partners, a Boston- and New York-based M&A advisory firm, is pleased to announce that it has advised SlimCut, a technology-based company that focuses on providing outstream video ad solutions for publishers, on their sale to Telaria, a Video Management Platform company that allows publishers to manage premium video advertising.

SlimCut offers a technology platform equipped with an oustream video solution as well as a publisher ad server enabling publishers to monetize their in-feed video, social and native inventory.

“Through our joint venture, we are excited to bring Telaria additional revenue opportunities as well as work with them to enhance their already successful Video Management Platform and create a leading premium video solution for publishers worldwide. We appreciate everyone at Progress Partners for facilitating the start of a new relationship, providing expert advice, and supporting us throughout the entire process.”

"We could not be more thrilled to work with such a capable and creative company like SlimCut," said Mark Zagorski, Chief Executive Officer of Telaria. “Their knowledge and experience as leaders of video ad solutions has been a driving force behind SlimCut’s success, and through this merger, we believe our combined efforts will not only help us expand our footprint but also expand our tech and sales teams into new markets.” 

Progress Partners acted as exclusive advisor to SlimCut and its shareholders in the transaction, with Senior Managing Director Chris Legg reflecting that the firm continues to see the rising importance of digital advertising. “We are pleased for SlimCut and the entire team as they begin a new journey with Telaria.
