Both Channel 4 News and the New York Times have reported that Nigel Oakes, a British director of the SCL Group, has said that Emerdata was set up to acquire and roll together Cambridge Analytica and SCL Group under a new name.

Founded in mid-2017, Emerdata has been rather active since Cambridge Analytica hit the headlines earlier this year, including official filings as recent as yesterday.

Facebook has since apologised and tightened its privacy restrictions. These individuals include Cambridge Analytica's former acting CEO Alexander Tayler (pictured), who became a director of Emerdata in March, and Julian Wheatland, who is an Emerdata director while also serving as a director in the SCL network.
