SpectrumOne acquires the Finnish SaaS company MyInfomonitor to merge with Qbim
Today SpectrumOne acquired the Finnish SaaS company OY Cemron AB also named MyInfomonitor (hereinafter “Myinfomonitor”) for the purpose of merging it with SpectrumOne’s subsidiary Qbim AB. The purchase price is SEK 11,000,000 and is paid via shares in SpectrumOne AB, with no additional share issue to current shareholders. The shares will be calculated at subscription price of SEK 2.48 per share, the weighted average price of the last ten trading days. MyInfomonitor had a revenue of about SEK 6.5 million and a profit of about SEK 1.9 million for the fiscal year 2020.
MyInfomonitor was created by the current management team with a vision of making information available both visually and in real time to make decision-making and working easy without relying on yesterday’s reports, and with their platform Illustrator this is what they do. Since the start of MyInfomonitor, the company has worked according to a strategy of building real SaaS software products with 100% owned IPRs and make each contract build on the cumulative income stream. The company has proven to be great at building high-quality software, simplifying automating and standardizing processes. While Qbim has its roots in the consulting business with great products built in parallel. MyInfomonitor on the other hand is sprung from the development and invention department. We foresee a great potential of the two working together to build one true SaaS business, Qbim 2.0, with consulting business as an ad-on to the core of SaaS.
The management team in MyInfomonitor consisting of Anton Eriksson and Timo Pulkkinen will continue working for the company. SpectrumOne will enhance and develop the business mainly by supporting Qbim 2.0 with building a relevant sales organisation to further increase sales and marketing activities and further develop products with the support of Prism platform.
Transforming Qbim to a true product company have been the objective since the acquisition, with the acquisition of MyInfomonitor we make that happen even faster. Qbim and MyInfomonitor will find synergies in development, sales and customer integration.
Furthermore, the merge of MyInfomonitor will make it possible for Qbim 2.0 to divide the revenue streams even clearer and to make sure the accurate investments are made in the precise place of the organisation. This will also make the follow-up of the organizations’ result easier and more spot-on for the management team of SpectrumOne. To increase SaaS and Accrued Recurring Revenue in the company is one of the most important goals for the group, this acquisition is a good action to speed up and developing Qbim into a true SaaS business.
We will as soon as possible make sure to set up a new sales organisation for both of the companies to make sure our investment becomes highly successful and sales figures exceeds forecasted.
Hosni Teque-Omeirat CEO of SpectrumOne commented on the acquisition “Having made our Due Diligence during the negotiations I have really discovered great value in this company. One of the actions during a Due Diligence is speaking to clients of the company. While doing that myself, it emerged to me, that the potential of increased additional sales to current customers is huge and we will be able to quite quickly act on those potentials. Clients are speaking very positively about the simplicity and efficiency of MyInfomonitor - important keywords for SpectrumOne. We will make sure that MyInfomonitor together with Qbim now make sure to develop a joint strategy in order to put SaaS revenues as top priorities for the new Qbim 2.0. I’m sure this merge will also render some other great news for our shareholders to be released after our full implementation of the company.”
Anton Eriksson, CEO of MyInfomonitor stated ““We are super excited having the opportunity to join the highly rapidly growing company of SpectrumOne and its’ people. Me and my co-founder Timo Pulkkinen have built a smart company focusing on making information easily available for our clients and now we are in a phase where a merge will take us to the next level of commercialization and expansion in the Nordics. We can see our products suit very well into Qbims architecture and portfolio. We have had a goal of taking our company internationally and with SpectrumOne as owners we see that journey as highly potential and doing that with the new Qbim 2.0 will surely make difference to us and our customers. As a part of SpectrumOne, we want to create something much bigger than we could do by ourselves. The more we get to know about what SpectrumOne has in sight the more excited we get in joining the team.”
