NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LittleThings, the leading lifestyle destination for inspiring, uplifting, and engaging content, today announced a bid to purchase Gawker Media’s Jezebel.com for $10 million. LittleThings executives officially submitted a late bid today to acquire all of Jezebel’s assets.
“Adding Jezebel’s 10 million monthly readers to our 50 million will further strengthen LittleThings’ reach, audience, and editorial and branded content offerings, making it well worth the investment,” said Joe Speiser, Cofounder and CEO of LittleThings. “This potential acquisition will allow LittleThings to tap into an established younger, millennial demographic to leverage each site’s unique female-focused content to a broader audience.”
“There is tremendous synergy between LittleThings and Jezebel as both sites skew heavy female, however there is little reader duplication. According to comScore, shared audience is only 2.37 million monthly unique visitors, so the incremental increase in monthly traffic is very appealing to us,” said Speiser.
“We are excited by the prospects of what the combined entity would bring to both of our audiences and brand advertisers,” added Gretchen Tibbits, Chief Operating Officer at LittleThings.
