CHICAGO, July 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Cision finalized the sale of its U.S. and U.K. Agility business to MediaMiser, an Innodata company (NASDAQ: INOD). The divestiture was a requirement for approval of Cision's acquisition of PR Newswire, which was finalized June 17, 2016.
The sale of Agility includes the assets and rights related to the business, including the Agility and Agility+ applications and platform, its global media database and customer contracts in the United States and United Kingdom.
