Shutterstock (SSTK) announced that it was acquiring Giphy Inc. from Meta Platforms Inc. The deal consists of $53 million in cash. Meta was forced to sell the animated images platform after a U.K. regulatory body ordered the Facebook parent company to sell the New York bases company as there were competition concerns. Shares of Shutterstock rose by about 4 percent premarket.

In 2020, Meta Platforms reportedly acquired Giphy for $400 million. In 2021. Britain’s Competition and Markets Authority challenged the deal and said that it would stifle competition. The regulator succeeded in forcing a tech giant in the U.S. to sell a New York based company that had already been acquired by it.

Animated image platform Giphy has the world’s largest collection of animated images called GIFs as well as web-based stickers.
