This morning, San Francisco based Episodic announced via their website that they have been acquired by Google. Terms of the deal have not yet been announced and I will update this post if I hear how much Google valued the company at. While Episodic had been operating in the market for a few years, they were a small player and it's clear that this was a technology acquisition on Google's part. I've reached out to Episodic's CEO and will update the post if I hear back.
Updated: I heard back from Episodic's CEO Noam Lovinsky who sent over an email stating that, "I don't have any additional info to share right now". The email looks to be a prepared email they are sending out to anyone who asks about the deal, which comes as no surprise considering it involves Google.
