ATLANTA, GA – March 9, 2021 –Cardlytics (NASDAQ: CDLX), a digital advertising platform, announced today the completion of its acquisition of Dosh, a cash-back offers platform. Previously announced on March 1, this acquisition will combine the scale of Cardlytics’ advertising platform – with an audience of more than 163 million monthly active users – alongside Dosh’s innovation, giving advertisers the ability to engage with consumers through some of the largest financial institutions and most notable neo-banks and fintech companies in the world.
