NEW YORK – December 24, 2014 – INNODATA INC. (NASDAQ: INOD) today announced that its MediaMiser subsidiary has acquired Bulldog Reporter intellectual property and related assets from Sirius Information Inc. (https://www.Bulldogreporter.com).

The assets acquired also include Daily Dog, the Bulldog Awards, Inside Health Media, Media Pro, and certain leading industry books and publications, but do not include the PR University and the webinar businesses of Sirius.

MediaMiser president Chris Morrison, said “If you work in PR you know Bulldog Reporter, and chances are you’ve subscribed to one of their solutions. We are excited about the opportunity to bring Bulldog Reporter back to life and to serve the PR community with cutting-edge media intelligence solutions. Both MediaMiser and Bulldog Reporter customers will benefit from our combined product offerings. We also expect that Bulldog Reporter business will accelerate our development cycle for certain products and our further penetration into the U.S. market.”
MediaMiser has hired certain key and experienced staff of Bulldog Reporter and has reopened the Oakland, CA office. Customers of Media Pro and Inside Health Media now have access to their subscriptions, and the Bulldog Awards will be re-launched in 2015, including those that went unfulfilled earlier this year. The popular PR industry newsletter, the Daily Dog, with editor Richard Carufel back at the helm, will re-launch shortly with daily updates to subscribers.
