Business.com Has Been Acquired by Purch
June 2016

Signal Hill is pleased to announce that its client Business.com, a leading online resource for small- and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), has been acquired by Purch, a digital content and commerce company.

The acquisition strengthens Purch’s ability to serve the strong and growing SMB market, building upon its existing assets that serve SMBs. Business.com’s expert guidance and content will guide Purch’s robust user base to navigate complex buying decisions, access expertise, and gain a competitive advantage.

“The SMB space is specialized, and our users rely on us for guidance and valuable content. When searching for the right next step for our company, we knew we needed partners who fully understood our space and the buyer landscape,” said Tony Uphoff, CEO of Business.com.

“Bob Berstein, Frank Cordek, and the Signal Hill team have provided fantastic counsel throughout this process,” Mr. Uphoff continued. “Starting with our presentation at the Montgomery Summit earlier this year, Signal Hill was there every step of the way and guided us to a great outcome.”
