Pegasus Imaging Acquires AccuSoft's Imaging Business
Successful transaction secures Pegasus Imaging's leadership position in the imaging market
TAMPA, Fla. - December 19, 2008 - Pegasus® Imaging Corporation, the world leader in digital imaging technology, today announces the acquisition of AccuSoft Corporation's imaging business in an eight-figure deal which includes the ImageGear® and NetVue® product lines. AccuSoft's powerful imaging products add significantly to Pegasus Imaging's wide portfolio of imaging solutions. With this acquisition, Pegasus Imaging enhances its position among the largest, most stable providers of digital imaging software development kits (SDKs) in the world. Both sets of customers and prospects are presented with a new opportunity to benefit from the stability, convenience, and flexibility the expanded company offers.
"AccuSoft is one of the oldest, most well-established and well-respected names in the imaging SDK marketplace. They are maintaining a strong, healthy business, and the synergies were obvious," says Jack Berlin, president of Pegasus Imaging. "They have a strong tradition of excellence and we are similar in our philosophies. The result is a formidable set of imaging products."
During the next 90 days, transition activities will focus primarily on supporting AccuSoft customers. They will receive a high level of service from Pegasus' best-in-class technical support organization and will be asked to provide feedback regarding their product needs and goals. Both AccuSoft and Pegasus customers will enjoy access to a broader range of imaging SDK products, technologies, and resources.
"Pegasus Imaging is committed to growing the imaging business," says David Frischling, former vice president of operations and corporate counsel at AccuSoft and now at Pegasus Imaging. "Our customers will continue to be well supported, and will see many new options moving forward. The new combined operation will be better positioned to make sure its customer needs are exceeded. I've seen a real focus on serving the customers, which will be critical during this next phase of growth. I am excited about the possibilities and opportunities this acquisition provides."
