On 2/22/17, Amobee, a subsidiary of Singtel, announced plans to acquire Turn. The deal was valued at $310 million and the transaction was completed on 4/10/17
Turn, a leading advertising technology company, offers a comprehensive suite of products for marketers, providing data management and analytics through its DMP and programmatic buying through its DSP. Through the acquisition of Turn, Amobee will expand its existing programmatic and data management capabilities, offering marketers an end-to-end advertising and data management platform across all channels, formats, and devices.

With global digital ad spend expected to exceed $200 billion in 2017, according to eMarketer, the acquisition of Turn will help Singtel capitalize on this massive opportunity as marketers increasingly shift advertising spend from traditional to digital media.
