NEW YORK -- February 25, 2013

INVISION, Inc., the leading provider of multi-platform advertising solutions
to the media industry, announced today that it has acquired Theory M, a
provider of strategic consulting services and custom software development and
design to the media industry. Theory M will become a wholly owned subsidiary
of INVISION.

INVISION supports linear and digital advertising with innovative, modern
solutions that manage rate cards, proposals, deal maintenance, traffic
operations, billing, stewardship, business intelligence, and reporting.
Leveraging two decades’ worth of experience in the traditional TV ad sales
business, INVISION has implemented integrated solutions for over 160 clients
worldwide in the broadcast, cable, syndication, digital, and satellite
markets. With the added consultative expertise of Theory M – which helps
companies understand and navigate the media industry’s rapidly changing
technologies, business models, and dynamics – INVISION will be able to offer
the sophisticated strategies and roadmaps its clients need to optimize their
businesses, as well as the robust technology systems that their operations
require.

“The acquisition of Theory M by INVISION means a vastly improved,
customizable, and truly start-to-finish offering for each of our clients,”
said Steve Marshall, Co-founder and CEO of INVISION. “With advanced and
addressable advertising on multiple devices on the rise, INVISION will now be
able to maintain its core software focus, while at the same time supporting
new and existing clients with a proven consulting arm. Tackling each
customer’s unique challenges with tailored technological solutions has always
been a hallmark of our company, and with this acquisition we’ll be in an even
stronger position to help our customers streamline their business, align
technology and business plans, onboard new technology, and develop strategic
niche software tools in order to make the most of a fluid media landscape.”

Christina Barlowe has been brought on to develop strategic partnerships and
lead Theory M as Vice President and General Manager. Having held senior roles
at Verizon Fios, Sirius Satellite Radio, HBO, and Rainbow Media Holdings,
Christina brings a breadth of experience in the areas of strategy, business
operations, and technology with her to the company. Immediately prior to
joining Theory M, Christina was Vice President of System Integration &
Operations at Cablevision, where she was responsible for developing technology
solutions to enable marketers and the sales organization to manage audiences,
personalize consumer experiences, combine consumer data and analytics, and
integrate a multi-platform ecosystem. In that capacity, she developed the
company’s system infrastructure and re-engineered business process in sales,
product management, and reporting and analytics to support Cablevision’s
advanced advertising sales process.
