Synchronica Acquires AxisMobile

Synchronica announced it has acquired AxisMobile:

  • AxisMobile was purchased for £2.8 million ($5.1 million), paid mostly in shares of Synchronica.
  • AxisMobile was financially distressed.
  • Synchronica got a good deal. It paid a low price for good technology and removal of an important competitor. In addition, revenues from AxisMobile’s customers should soon pay off the acquisition cost.
  • Synchronica tied the acquisition in with a round of funding. This appears to have been an effective technique. Without the linkage, Synchronica might well have found it hard to raise financing, or the terms might have been much less favorable.

For a detailed analysis, see our report Synchronica Buys AxisMobile: Transaction Assessment.

  • Provide messaging and collaborative technologies
  • Archive electronic information
  • Ensure compliance with corporate policy, industry regulations, and laws
  • Facilitate e-discovery, and contain its costs

Email is the most important type of electronic information that requires control today. Other important types include instant messages, Sharepoint teamspaces, images, voice, video, and miscellaneous desktop files.

  • Clients include 300 of the world's 1,000 largest organizations, and computer vendors from the largest corporations to small startups
  • While other analysts have come and gone, we've published more than 200 formal reports and 1,100 short bulletins
  • Our news service covers more than 2,000 highly specialized announcements annually
  • We have nine experts in our research team, sharing many decades of experience in our core competencies

In short, our technology and industry depth helps you understand today's products, where they've come from and where they're going.
