Sprout Social’s CEO and Co-Founder, Justyn Howard, added that “sentiment analysis and artificial intelligence are key to managing social media at scale and, with the addition of Repustate technology, we’re excited to bring an even deeper set of capabilities to our customers.”
Working closely with Repustate CEO, Martin Ostrovsky, Maveria and Slator advised the seller throughout the process, including preparing the process documentation, screening and contacting potential buyers, and managing and coordinating the closing.
