Perion Introduces Facebook Canvas Support with Unique Retargeting

Extends leadership in high-impact advertising to social

TEL AVIV, Israel and NEW YORK, June 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Perion, (NASDAQ: PERI) a global advertising technology company that delivers high-quality advertising solutions to brands and publishers, today announced that customers' advertising campaigns can now be extended through Facebook Canvas, an interactive mobile-first high-impact advertising solution. 

Thanks to the MakeMeReach platform, a Facebook Marketing Partner, clients can run the Canvas ad format as part of a larger high-impact campaign, extending their cross-screen advertising's reach into Facebook's platform. In addition, the company can now retarget users who have seen their high impact messages with a related ad in social environments across Facebook and Instagram.

Through the combination of the Undertone and MakeMeReach business units, agencies and advertisers will now benefit from the ability to leverage Undertone's PIXL Studios creative services in social, as well as the opportunity to re-message high-value prospects that have been exposed to Undertone's advertising campaigns within Facebook's environment and network.   

"Our leadership in high impact advertising is reinforced by combining the unparalleled creative capabilities of our Undertone business with the power of our MakeMeReach platform, which enables us to debut Facebook Canvas support for our customers," said Perion CEO Josef Mandelbaum.  "Our retargeting capabilities will immediately benefit advertisers and agencies seeking to more effectively engage consumers as they move across different online environments."  

PIXL Studios, the creative services division of Undertone, has worked with hundreds of clients over the years -- from small agencies to large holding company divisions to brands themselves. DIGIDAY, IAB MIXX and OMMA have awarded PIXL Studios for outstanding creative work.
