Dear Customers and Partners,
On April 18, 2017, Oracle announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire Moat, the fastest-growing digital measurement cloud company. Moat will join Oracle Data Cloud, which uses data and analytics to enhance media for leading marketers and publishers. The combination of Oracle and Moat will connect data to consumer attention for better media experiences and business outcomes.
Moat will remain an independent platform within Oracle Data Cloud, providing trusted measurement, analytics, and intelligence to the world's largest brands and leading publishers. Moat's enterprise client base and industry-leading attention analytics and intelligence suite provide a strong complement to Oracle Data Cloud's audience targeting and measurement solutions.
I am thrilled to welcome CEO Jonah Goodhart and the entire Moat team to Oracle Data Cloud. Moat has grown its attention analytics business by over 100% in the past year, providing actionable insights around viewability, brand safety, non-human traffic, and ad creative to over 600 clients, just as these issues have become top of mind for every major publisher, brand and agency.
With the Moat acquisition, Oracle Data Cloud now offers brands and publishers a full suite of targeting and measurement solutions to improve the outcome of virtually every type of digital advertising campaign.

Thank you for your continued support.
