Voices.com Acquires Voicebank.net

Date: 09/08/2017

Voices.com, the largest global online marketplace for audio and voice over products and services, announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Voicebank.net, a leading online platform for casting and project management workflow utilized by more than 1,600 of the top global advertising agencies, casting directors and creative, television and film production studios. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Launched in 1998 and based in California, Voicebank.net is the leading platform for talent and management agents - including those for well-known celebrity talent. Leading production, creative and advertising companies utilize the technology-enabled platform to post opportunities, identify and communicate with talent and their representation and manage and complete engagements through VoiceBank.nets digital platform.

Combined, Voices.com and VoiceBank.net will address all segments of the market and include all engagement types from animation dubbing to global television spots to podcasts to gaming. While operating as separate platforms, VoiceBank.net will immediately benefit from Voices.coms deep investment in its technology and systems. Production companies and corporate clients will now be able to turn to Voices.com for all of their audio and voice over requirements, large and small.

The acquisition will create a new paradigm for the process of securing voice talent across the globe, says Voices.com CEO and Founder, David Ciccarelli. Years of customer feedback and an ongoing commitment to continue to revolutionize the voice over industry has resulted in this transaction. Acquiring Voicebank.net will see Voices.com strengthening relationships in the community and further delivering on the evolving needs of clients and talent alike.

From early meetings, it was clear to me that our companies had much in common, including a similar vision for the future. That, in combination with it being the right time for each of us, resulted in this acquisition, says Jeff Hixon, the CEO and Founder of Voicebank.net for the past 19 years. As a leading company in the voice-over industry, this relationship with Voices.com will be an invaluable benefit for both Voicebank.net and our customers.

This news follows Voices.coms announcement of an $18 million growth investment from Morgan Stanley Expansion Capital, positioning the Company to continue to cement its market leading positioning, invest in its technology and systems and better serve its clients, talent and employees.
