A statement from Oxford Analytica's Global Managing Director, David K. Young.

Important Distinction: Oxford Analytica has no relationship with Cambridge Analytica

In light of the recent decision by Facebook to suspend accounts belonging to Cambridge Analytica, we would like to make clear there is not now and never has been any relationship or affiliation whatsoever between Oxford Analytica and Cambridge Analytica.

In 2017, Oxford Analytica entered into a trademark dispute with Cambridge Analytica over the term Analytica, for which Oxford Analytica has held a trademark since 1994. The dispute has not been resolved as of the date of this statement.
