Moody’s Corporation acquires Acquire Media business from Naviga, Inc.

Enhanced focus will allow Naviga to grow, innovate and invest in its Content Engagement Platform solutions for media organizations globally

Naviga, Inc. a leading provider of software and services that power media-rich industries, today announced it has divested its financial services-focused Acquire Media entity to Moody’s Corporation (NYSE:MCO).

Increasing demand for high-quality content is causing challenges for media organizations looking to engage and monetize audiences across every channel. With solutions for content creation, media presentation, audience engagement, advertising sales and digital media commerce, Naviga’s Content Engagement Platform (CEP) serves the critical needs of media organizations.

“Naviga will focus its strategic investment and innovation on its Content Engagement Platform to enable media companies around the world to accelerate their digital transformation journey,” said Scott Roessler, CEO of Naviga. “Whether through organic innovation, such as providing smart AI/ML-based layouts for print manufacturing workflows, or acquiring leading technologies, Naviga will continue to expand the ways it delivers ROI to customers.”

Media organizations of all sizes are facing the challenges of managing content across multiple disparate teams, tailoring it to various touchpoints and driving engagement across a wide spectrum of audience segments all demanding a media-rich experience. Naviga is bridging the gap between yesterday’s traditional print-only publisher to today’s digital-by-default media house providing the industry’s most modern and comprehensive content engagement offerings. Naviga helps its media customers maximize revenue and streamline business processes with solutions that are cloud-ready, digital-first and scalable to fit the needs of any media business.

“Naviga and Acquire Media are two great businesses with leading global positions in their respective markets,” Roessler continued. “For more than two years Naviga and Acquire Media have mutually benefited from being a single company, creating mutual value for customers across respective industries. This separation is an important step in streamlining Naviga’s focus on driving content engagement solutions to support publishers and media organizations worldwide.”
