cogint Responds to Anonymous Short Seller Blog

BOCA RATON, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jun. 5, 2017– Cogint, Inc. (NASDAQ: COGT), a leading provider of information and data-driven, performance marketing solutions, responded today to false statements and allegations by an anonymous short seller and blogger known as “Une Mon.”

Today, our Company was subjected to an unscrupulous Internet blog by an anonymous, admitted short seller of the stock,” stated Derek Dubner, cogint’s CEO. “The blog contains numerous, recycled and fabricated inaccuracies and misstatements, solely, we believe, to serve the writer’s interest of making money from the stock’s decline. It is unfortunate that small companies must endure this self-serving, unethical, and perhaps illegal conduct. As we have demonstrated for the last several quarters, our company is financially stronger, our business is solid, and we have built differentiated and valuable technology, massive databases, and products and solutions. The Company and its management have not received any communications from the SEC or from any state, local, or federal law enforcement agency or any other regulatory body regarding the allegations in the blog. We remain focused on serving our customers and creating shareholder value.”
