SpotX invested $2 million in SpringServe in July 2020. Then in February of this year, Magnite announced it would buy SpotX for $1.17 billion, leaving the future of the ad serving company a bit unclear.

At the time, Magnite CEO Michael Barrett told Adweek that his company would figure out what to do with SpringServe after the deal closed, but that he’s “always admired” the SpringServe team and thought SpotX’s investment in the company was smart.

In a statement today regarding the deal, Barrett said the addition of SpringServe will help any CTV publisher “no matter where they are in the evolution of their sales channel strategy.”
