Telelogic acquires Real Time Products Ltd

Telelogic acquires Real Time Products Ltd Acquisition increases Telelogic's global presence MALMÖ, Sweden, September 8, 1999 - Telelogic AB (Stockholm Stock Exchange: TLOG), today signed a contract to acquire all the shares of Real Time Products Ltd., Birmingham, UK. "Telelogic is pursuing an aggressive growth strategy, as evident from today's news," declared Anders Lidbeck, president and CEO of Telelogic. "Our acqui- sition of Real Time Products not only provides us with consultants who have experience in the UK telecoms industry, but it also doubles our sales force. Real Time Products supplies products and services that complement our own fam- ily of products, Telelogic Tau. This signed agreement is in line with our goal of becoming a leading supplier of complete solutions for real-time communica- tion systems." "Our company has extensive experience and occupies a strong position in the UK market," said David Hann and Ian Russell, the former owners of Real Time, who will now be in charge of Telelogic's UK business activities. "Since we already offer supplementary solutions used with Telelogic software development tools, it was a natural progression to combine these two companies. One prod- uct that we will not continue to market, however, is Verilog's software devel- opment tool, for which Real Time Products is currently the UK distributor," Ian Russell concluded. Telelogic plans to merge its UK-based subsidiary with Real Time Products this autumn. Company officials believe the acquisition will have a positive affect on profits in the first year. At the request of the seller, financial terms of the acquisition are not being divulged.
