AKQA Not For Sale, Will Recapitalize With Private Equity Firm

akqa_site_logo.jpg

There was speculation over the past month that AKQA was up for sale but the agency tells us that's not the case. They are, however, "recapitalizing" by selling off stake of the agency to private equity firm General Atlantic. The agency will retain its independent status and we are told speculation the agency would sell was exactly that: uninformed speculation.

They did sell, just not to an ad agency holding company.
