MediaAlpha Announces CFO Transition Process; Reaffirms Q2 and Full Year 2021 Financial Guidance

MediaAlpha, Inc. (NYSE: MAX), today announced that Tigran Sinanyan has notified the Company of his intention to resign as Chief Financial Officer, effective October 1, 2021, to pursue a general management role with a privately-held company. The Company has begun a search for a new CFO with the assistance of a leading executive search firm. Mr. Sinanyan will continue to serve as the Company’s CFO and assist in the transition over the course of the next three months.

“On behalf of the entire team at MediaAlpha, I would like to thank Tigran for his innumerable contributions over the last nine years,” said Steve Yi, CEO. “Tigran has been with us from the beginning and was instrumental in scaling MediaAlpha from a self-funded start-up to a public company, building a solid financial team and guiding the team through a successful IPO and follow-on offering. We wish him every success as he pursues this new career direction.”

Tigran Sinanyan commented, “I’ve truly enjoyed being a part of MediaAlpha’s success, and after careful consideration, have decided to pursue another opportunity outside of finance. It’s been an incredible journey and I would like to express my deepest gratitude to Steve, our board, our equity partners, and the entire MediaAlpha team for their trust and support over the years.”

Mr. Sinanyan has confirmed that his resignation is not a result of any disagreement with the Company or its independent auditors on any matter relating to the Company’s accounting, strategy, management, operations, policies, regulatory matters, or practices (financial or otherwise).

Reaffirmation of Financial Guidance

MediaAlpha today also reaffirmed its financial guidance for the second quarter and full year 2021, which it had provided in connection with the announcement of MediaAlpha’s first quarter 2021 financial results on May 12, 2021.
