Science Acquires PlayHaven Ad Network

PlayhavenMedia and marketing firm Science has acquired the PlayHaven mobile ad network from Upsight.

The PlayHaven team will join Sciences Growth Labs division, and Science will invest in new solutions to grow the PlayHaven business. Advertisers and publishers previously using the PlayHaven network, including Upsight customers, will experience no change in service and campaigns will continue to run.

Meanwhile, Upsight – which formed in March after the merger between PlayHaven and Kontagent – says it will focus on its core analytics and marketing platform.

“The PlayHaven Ad Network has a reputation for its high-quality user base and exceptional customer service. Science has a proven track record of building world-class digital marketing firms and is the right team to carry that flag and continue growing the business,” said Andy Yang, CEO of Upsight. “With complete focus on our SaaS business, Upsight will aggressively invest and expand into new verticals and quickly launch new analytics and marketing products that help our customers bridge the gap between insight and action.”
