San Jose, California, Jan. 21, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sonasoft Corp. (OTCPK: SSFT), a leader in email archiving and eDiscovery business solutions, and ArcMail, a leader in enterprise email archiving appliances jointly announce that they have signed a letter of intent (LOI) to allow Sonasoft to acquire ArcMail. As part of the acquisition, Rory Welch, President and CEO of ArcMail will join Sonasoft and be responsible for all archiving business of both companies. ArcMail will continue to operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Sonasoft under the management of Mr. Welch. Both companies will continue to support their existing customers.
"ArcMail has set the industry standard for Linux-based and enterprise email archiving software, eDiscovery appliances, and solutions. ArcMail has a history of being early to market with technologies such as archiving for Google Apps and Gmail as well as innovating a local/cloud hybrid model", said Andy Khanna, President and CEO of Sonasoft, "whereas Sonasoft solutions traditionally used Microsoft technologies. We expect that this acquisition will capture a greater market share by offering a broad product line that utilizes the advantages of both technologies. We also look forward to the operations leadership that Rory Welch, President and CEO of ArcMail, brings to grow the business. I have the full confidence that Mr. Welch will take the combined company's products and services to a new level."
"As announced on January 7, 2015, we had our best Q4 in years and projected a 135 percent increase in revenue from our previous quarter", continued Andy Khanna. "With this momentum, we are excited about the potential impact that the combined companies will have in the market this year, and we will communicate our revised annual forecast later this quarter."
The closing of the acquisition is subject to the completion of due diligence and execution of definitive agreements. There is no guarantee that such transaction will be completed.
