    SourceMedia is a New York City-based diversified business-to-business digital media company serving the financial, healthcare and technology industries. Its portfolio comprises many of business-to-business media’s strongest brands, including American Banker, The Bond Buyer, Financial Planning and Accounting Today. The company offers subscribers and clients digital news and data services, industry research, in-depth conferences and seminars, and specialized marketing services. Over the past three years, SourceMedia has executed a transformation strategy powered by significant investments, which reestablished it as a performance marketing company with strong subscription and event platforms. The company is recognized for superior content across all channels, as evidenced by its audience growth and numerous journalism awards. SourceMedia has a conservative capital structure, in addition to strong financial performance and trends.
