Yalo Activates Its Growth Strategy
Award-winning, creative agency Digital Yalo announces acquisition of Ninja Multimedia. The Ninja acquisition signals the activation of Yalo’s growth strategy through acquisitions and new technology partnerships over the next 24 to 36 months. Based in Atlanta, Ninja has worked with clients such as Georgia Lottery, Arby’s and brings an arsenal of digital chops to the agency.
The acquisition of Ninja strengthens and expands Yalo’s capabilities in multiple ways adding front-end web development expertise, e-learning skill sets and solutions, and a complete suite of virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) capabilities. In addition to expanding its skill set, the acquisition broadens Yalo’s client footprint in the Atlanta market while adding industry expertise in Healthcare.
This will enable Yalo to further elevate its clients’ digital experiences for end customers. The agency will immediately begin offering new solutions in VR/AR and e-Learning to its diverse client base.
“We’ve always planned to grow through acquisition when the economy softened a bit. We just didn’t expect it to be caused by a worldwide pandemic,” said Arnold Huffman, CEO of Digital Yalo. “And after two very successful years of outstanding growth of 43% and 61%, we had a significant amount of backlog work which required us to add quality talent to our agency. Thus, we felt it was still the right time to push ahead with our growth strategy.”
This acquisition is not only additive to Yalo’s skills but equally important, the Ninja team is an excellent cultural fit to Yalo’s approach of leveraging film, art, music and sports to elevate clients’ brands.
“Yalo has a great culture, great clients and a great team, and we are thrilled to be a valued addition to Yalo’s future growth,” said Drew Pearson, former CEO of Ninja Multimedia.
