Welcome to Digiday’s DealBook. Our focus is to create a quick and easy rundown of the deals, acquisitions and hires that took place last week. The goal is to inform and update you on the latest happenings in the industry at the top of your inbox each Monday.  — Carly Weihe

  • As Q2 earnings rolled out last week, it was clear that some major platforms struggled to perform amid growing economic uncertainty. Snap, Twitter and Meta fared worse than Google, which maintained its quarterly projections. 
  • Twitter has announced it will have a shareholder’s meeting to approve Elon Musk’s acquisition of the company, despite the ongoing lawsuit between the two parties. The meeting of the shareholders will be live streamed on Sept. 13, a month before the official lawsuit is scheduled to begin in Delaware in October. While Musk has agreed to the Twitter lawsuit beginning on Oct. 17, earlier than expected, some are skeptical that he will try to delay the lawsuit further.
  • Shopify and Vox Media both announced they will be laying off a portion of their staff following Q2 earnings and economic uncertainty. Shopify will lay off 10% of its workforce, while Vox will lay off 2%. 
  • Ad-tech company Tremor International acquired Amobee for $239 million. The deal includes Amobee’s omnichannel DSP platform and will help Tremor expand globally. 
  • MTV announced a new “Best Metaverse Performance” category for its 2022 Video Music Award. The move marks the continued shift of pop culture into the metaverse. 
  • Trailer Park Group, an entertainment and marketing company, announced the launch of Mutiny, a new gaming agency. The new agency will further the company’s growth in the gaming and esports space.
