Conduit Acquires Wibiya

Conduit, the largest global network of browser and mobile app publishers with over 260,000 members and their 230 million users, today announced the acquisition of leading web publishing solution and app platform, Wibiya. Up until now I had never actually heard of Conduit but Wibiya may be best known for their toolbar that you can find tucked at the bottom of  thousands of websites.

wibiya-toolbarFounded in 2005, Conduit’s mission is to provide web publishers with solutions to realize their business goals, collaborate through business partnerships and effectively engage their users anytime, anywhere. The company initially focused on web browsers, and earlier this year launched its mobile platform, enabling content publishers to easily create cross-device native mobile apps. The acquisition of Wibiya further extends Conduit’s offering, thus providing a unique, comprehensive solution for engaging users when on the publisher’s website, when browsing other websites, and on their mobile phones.

Wibiya, founded in 2008, provides fully customizable, easy-to-use web applications for more than 120,000 publishers, such as TheStreet.com, TheOnion.com, Philly.com, and a collective audience of 200 million users. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
