YellowBrix and FluentMedia Announce Merger

YellowBrix, a provider of targeted information products and content-customization technology, and FluentMedia, a content-licensing agency (launched in January 2002) of Tribune Media Services, announced they have merged their operations. The newly merged organization will operate as YellowBrix, Inc. and will have its headquarters in Alexandria, Va. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. The merger consolidates two suppliers of business-related content for the corporate market. Following its merger with FluentMedia, YellowBrix's major shareholders are Soros Private Equity, ABN AMRO, and Tribune Media Services.

The combined companies provide clients with current news, commentary, and other information from a variety of national and international sources. These include top newspapers, wire services, and trade publications. YellowBrix customers distribute this information to their end users via e-mail, Web sites, and wireless devices. The foundation of the YellowBrix product line is a proprietary technology that uses artificial intelligence, linguistic pattern analysis, and entity identification to contextually analyze information before delivery to its clients.
