Antenna Software Acquires Strategic Assets of Vettro

By PRESS RELEASE — November 12, 2008

JERSEY CITY, N.J. -- Antenna Software, delivering real business mobility to the world's most demanding enterprises, has acquired strategic assets of Vettro Corporation, a privately held company based in New York that specialized in mobile applications for the field service industry.

In the deal, Antenna acquired assets that include Vettro's products and intellectual property; select customers and related customer contracts and alliance and channel partnerships.  The acquisition builds on Antenna's decade-long expertise in mobility and brings additional expertise across several industry sectors including IT service management/help desk, local delivery and courier companies, transportation and logistics, utilities and the broader field service space.  The acquisition also reinforces the long-term viability of Antenna's platform-based mobility approach and further strengthens the company's position as the global leader in the mobile enterprise application platform market.

"Through our acquisition of select Vettro customer and partner relationships, Antenna is executing on its plan to expand channels for growth of the Antenna Mobility Platform (AMP)," said Jim Hemmer, president and CEO, Antenna Software.  "By bringing Vettro's customers onto AMP -- and applying our world-class service and support -- we will provide the security, reliability and control customers need and deserve today, combined with the vision and long-term value mobility brings for years to come."

Antenna will continue to service the acquired Vettro customer contracts and will provide support for the suite of V360 mobile application products accordingly.  When appropriate, Antenna intends to help customers migrate from Vettro's V360 solutions to the AMP platform, an open and flexible architecture that leverages IT investments and serves as a central hub to bring together the primary elements of a comprehensive mobile deployment.  This will enable customers to take advantage of a broader set of services and capabilities as a result of this acquisition.

"As a customer of both Vettro and Antenna, our company is in a unique position to take advantage of the benefits of the Antenna Mobility Platform going forward," said, Dave Rudzinsky, SVP and CIO, Hologic.  "The opportunity to mobilize both our field service and field sales organizations using the same technology infrastructure will give us more scale, utilize IT resources more efficiently and enable a consistent, strategic approach to mobility."

Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
