The consolidation in the microstock business continues: Canstockphoto - sold. Bigstockphoto - sold. Crestock - sold now to Masterfile, leaving only very few agencies, like e.g. YayMicro, as future potential objects of purchase.
The reasons remain the same ones: "Like many young companies, we had reached the point where we needed additional investment", said Crestock´s Geir Are Jensen. "Crestock went through a rough patch over the past year", said Masterfile´s Steve Pigeon.
