This is a big day at Seismic. I feel like we’ve been saying that a lot lately — in the past month alone, we launched the Seismic Summer 2020 Release featuring our new Interactive Content capabilities, were named the Leader in the Forrester Wave: Sales Content Solutions, Q3 2020 report, and were also named to the Forbes Cloud 100 for the second year in a row.
We’re fortunate to be experiencing strong momentum, thanks to our customers, partners, employees and all supporters of Seismic.
And we’re not slowing down, just the opposite — we’re speeding up. I’m excited to share that today Seismic announced the close of our Series F funding round of $92M, led by global private equity firm Permira, in addition to new strategic investors in Ameriprise Financial, a Seismic customer, and EDBI, a global investment firm in Asia. I am also proud that current investors Lightspeed Ventures, T. Rowe Price and Jackson Square Ventures are also participating in the round.
Today’s news means we will have even more capital to fuel our growth. Specifically, we’re planning to accelerate product innovation, continue global expansion plans, and seek opportunities to enhance and expand our platform through strategic, targeted acquisitions. We’ll also be able to tap into the expertise of Permira, a global firm with deep experience guiding enterprise software companies. We’ll continue investing in our people and innovating on the industry-leading Seismic platform that thousands of people use everyday.
I can’t wait to see what’s next. Onward.
