SAN FRANCISCO, April 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Gravity4, the world's first High-Frequency Marketing OS, announced the acquisition of Ezlike, Inc.

As a leader in building Facebook advertising products using the Native Ads API, the Company will be integrated within Gravity4's existing native advertising platform. This marks Gravity4's eighth acquisition in just nine months.

With this acquisition, Gravity4 will expand its Latin American footprint and broaden its prior acquisition of Triggit, which also had a significant presence in Brazil. As a part of the eighth acquisition, Xavier Mantilla, Gravity4's GM of Latin America, will welcome the Ezlike team in Gravity4's offices in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Gravity4 will also expand the offering and bring the Facebook's Native Advertising product globally to its customers.

The combination of Ezlike, Triggit and our existing programmatic OS will allow us to bring the best of class enterprise software to marketers globally across every consumer touch point," said Gurbaksh Chahal, Chairman and CEO of Gravity4.
"I'm excited to not only work with two great existing teams, Triggit and Ezlike that helped define the early years of online advertising in Latin America, but also excited for bringing the broader Gravity4 vision across Latin America. Being able to eliminate the middlemen and creating an automated self-serve platform where data is the new currency becomes a game-changer for the Latin American digital advertising landscape," said, Xavier Mantilla, General Manager of Gravity4 Latin America.

With phenomenal results month over month, we know Ezlike will continue to be a valuable partner for us and we look forward in seeing how we can expand our offerings with Gravity4's fully integrated programmatic platform.
