Houlihan Lokey Advises Motion Array

Houlihan Lokey is pleased to announce that Motion Array has been acquired by Artlist, a portfolio company of KKR. The transaction closed on November 9, 2020.

Founded in 2013, Motion Array provides an all-in-one subscription-based creative marketplace and technology solution for video creators, focused on delivering a variety of high-quality digital media at an affordable price. Motion Array's multimedia catalog includes video templates, presets, plugins, transitions, motion graphics, and photos, as well as efficient filmmaking tools such as editing software integrations, video collaboration, and a portfolio builder.

Artlist, based in Tel Aviv, Israel, is a leading digital content licensing provider that offers streamlined, high-quality creative assets for filmmakers and video creators.

The acquisition comes on the heels of a $48 million funding round in early 2020, led by global investment firm KKR and existing investor Elephant Partners. Artlist’s acquisition of Motion Array marks a significant step toward the company becoming a comprehensive creative stock solution for video creators. Motion Array's video capabilities and technology tools, along with its versatile video template options, will allow Artlist to expand its digital stock media portfolio for video creators and filmmakers. Through the acquisition, Artlist will reach more than six million users worldwide and grow its catalog by more than half a million stock assets.

Houlihan Lokey served as the exclusive financial advisor to Motion Array.
