How do bug bounty companies like Zero Day Initiative make money?

ZDI offers to buy bugs from hackers, then they notify the vendor who’s software has the bug. I see where the hacker makes money, but where does ZDI make money? It sounds like ZDI reports the bug to the vendor for free.



I thought they sell the bugs too


Aren’t they just brokers that get a percentage of the bounty? Sounds like a good gig to me.
