Moontoast Closes $4.5 Million Extension To Series B Funding

Significant Momentum with Global Brands Drives New Investment for Leading Social Rich Media Provider

BOSTON, January 30, 2014-- Moontoast, the leading provider of social rich media advertising technology and services, today announced it has raised a $4.5 million extension to its 2013 Series B funding. The investment was made by the Martin Companies, a Nashville-based early-stage investment company. This latest round of financing was received on the back of the company's strong traction and results with brands that include Toyota, P&G, Nike, Lexus, Samsung, Microsoft, Hyundai, AMD and Nissan. The investment will be used to fuel this growth as well as expand the social rich media platform's multi-channel analytics and optimization.

"In 2013, Moontoast experienced 277% revenue growth and tremendous industry validation. We anticipate that 2014 will be a year of further acceleration and continued platform innovation. This investment will allow us to accelerate these efforts and to further extend our market leadership and results in social rich media," said Blair Heavey, Moontoast, CEO.

Moontoast is the preferred choice of top brands across automotive, media, entertainment, consumer packaged-goods, retail, and consumer technology sectors to deliver innovative and engaging social advertising experiences. In 2013, Moontoast led the Social Rich Media industry with multiple first-to-market technology offerings for their clients, including the first social rich media ad campaign to use Instagram as a primary channel. The campaign, designed for the 2014 Toyota Tundra, broke new ground for integrated multimedia and consumer engagement by leveraging new content rules at Facebook and Twitter to allow for more prominent embedded image and video viewing.

"We are excited to continue supporting Moontoast, and working with the company's outstanding team to develop, and bring ground-breaking social rich media advertising to top brands," said Les Wilkinson, Managing Director and General Counsel, the Martin Companies.
