El Segundo, Calif.-based research firm iSuppli Corp. June 10 said it would acquire London-based Screen Digest, including subsidiary Adams Media Research, based in Monterey, Calif.
Financial terms of the deal linking the providers of market research covering film, television, broadband media, mobile media, cinema, home entertainment, TV technology and video games were not disclosed.
Calling the merger an “exceptionally good fit,” Derek Lidow, president and CEO of iSuppli, said he didn’t expect any “redundancies” on either side as a result of the acquisition.
