Paltalk, Inc. Announces Acquisition of Visicom's ManyCam Assets

Jericho, NY - (NewMediaWire) - June 09, 2022 - Paltalk, Inc. (“Paltalk,” the “Company,” “we,” “our” or “us”) (Nasdaq: PALT), a leading communications software innovator that powers multimedia social applications, today announced that it has acquired the core assets of ManyCam from Visicom Media Inc. (“Visicom”). ManyCam is a live streaming software and virtual camera that allows users to deliver professional live videos on any streaming platform, video conferencing app or distance learning tool.

Jason Katz, Chairman and CEO of Paltalk, commented, “I have been impressed with the ManyCam software for many years.  We believe that ManyCam is not only a perfect fit for our existing video chat communities, but also a great addition to other video conferencing applications like Zoom or Google Meet. ManyCam gives users the ability to have multiple camera feeds, backgrounds and effects while also enabling users to share presentations, spreadsheets, documents and much more. We believe the integration of the ManyCam software into our current application offerings has the potential to generate positive cash flow in the near term and contribute to positive EBITDA over the long term. ManyCam is a logical extension for the Paltalk and Camfrog customer base, and we believe it is an application that our existing users will be willing to pay for.”
