Amagi, an India-based media technology provider, announced Thursday over $100 million in investment, inclusive of $80 million in primary capital, from global growth equity firm General Atlantic.

The investment brings Amagi’s valuation to $1.4 billion, representing an increase from the $1 billion valuation the company achieved in March 2022 with a $95 million investment from Accel, Norwest Venture Partners and Avataar Ventures, Amagi said in a statement.

The three venture capitalist firms remain as Amagi’s investors along with Premji Invest and Nadathur Holdings. General Atlantic’s investment is expected to close following receipt of regulatory approval.

With this latest funding, the company expects to strengthen its support infrastructure for customers and invest in artificial intelligence (AI)-driven personalization, advertising, and live streaming solutions, particularly in the free ad-supported streaming TV (FAST) ecosystem.

With the global media and entertainment industry projected to reach nearly $3 trillion in revenues by 2026, Amagi believes there are significant opportunities for growth through organic and inorganic activities.

“We have set ourselves the ambitious goal of developing futuristic technology solutions that can help media companies deliver premium personalized content and engaging advertising experiences to their consumers,

“We believe that General Atlantic, with their longstanding history of helping technology companies build enduring models, is the ideal investment partner for this stage of our growth journey. We are thrilled to have their backing and look forward to leveraging their expertise,” said Baskar Subramanian, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Amagi.
