Marketwired

Marketwired, a social communications company, provides full-service content distribution and social media solutions to the world’s communicators. Profitable since its inception in 1983, Marketwired is a market leader in the US, UK and Canada.

With more than 400 employees serving 15,000-plus clients from 20 offices across four continents, Marketwired’s success lies in its industry-leading customer support and successful track record of product innovation.

In 2010 Marketwired acquired leading social media monitoring and analytics company Sysomos. Since then, social intelligence has become integral to the Marketwired product suite, which includes a full range of easy-to-use solutions that help communicators achieve their goals: social media monitoring and analytics; wire and web content distribution; social communications; performance tracking; complete regulatory filing and disclosure services; media monitoring and management; and online content management.

The company was founded in 1983 as CCN Matthews in Canada; it acquired Market Wire (headquartered in the US) in 2006, branded as the cohesive company Marketwire in 2007 and rebranded under the name Marketwired in 2013.

Marketwired is majority-owned by OMERS Private Equity (www.omerspe.com), which manages the private equity activities of OMERS Administration Corporation and today has $6.4 billion of investments under management. OMERS Private Equity is headquartered in Toronto, Canada, with offices in New York and London
