GPXS Becomes Europexxx8217;s Largest Center of BlackBerry & Wireless Expertise
Orlando, New York, Amsterdam, Munich - May 14, 2008
GPXS Holding Ltd., the parent company of GPXSxxx8482;, a leading global BlackBerry® platform, solutions, services, and training provider, today announced a definitive agreement to acquire, within the next quarter, ISEC7, the leading BlackBerry business in Germany. In related news, GPXS announced it has acquired the Blackberry focused portion of Hencke Systemberatung GmbH. GPXS made these announcements at Research in Motionxxx8217;s (RIMxxx8217;s) Wireless Enterprise Symposium (WES 2008 in Orlando, Florida, US) where 5500 people from the worldxxx8217;s most progressive enterprises have gathered to share and learn about the power of wireless devices and applications.
The GPXS acquisitions of Germany-based ISEC7 and Hencke Systemberatung represent a significant expansion in GPXS product assets, customer base, and development capability across Europe, resulting in GPXS being Europexxx8217;s largest BlackBerry and wireless development center. The talented teams of service professionals and developers from ISEC7 and Hencke are added to the deeply experienced, high-quality technical and professional BlackBerry and wireless experts at GPXS R&D in Limerick, Ireland and in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
In a world where enterprises and the companies who serve them are absolutely constrained by the scarcity of technical talent, GPXS has been developing internally and is now adding, through acquisition, technical talent, customer relationships, important partner alliances, and essential product assets to its business. For customers and partners this means that they can expect improved availability of high quality services and products throughout German speaking regions, as well as elsewhere in the world supported by the rest of the GPXS organization. This acquisition also allows the consolidation of leadership, resources, services, and products in North America and the rest of Europe.
"We are delighted to have such high quality teams joining our organization to complement the investments we have already made in building a multi-geography business led by a multi-national leadership team," said Jerome H. Mol, CEO and Chairman of GPXS. "We look forward to the contribution of ISEC7 and Hencke Systemberatung in growing our worldwide business."
"ISEC7 has long admired GPXS and we think this combination is a very important step for ISEC7xxx8217;s growth," said Roger Dost and Marco Gocht, founders of ISEC7. "GPXS has already conquered many of the growth and investment challenges that ISEC7 would have faced as an independent enterprise and we now can accelerate the growth of our business by taking
advantage of capabilities and reach that GPXS already possesses. This is a great growth step for our customers, our partners, and our employees."
"The combination of GPXS and Hencke Systemberatungxxx8217;s BlackBerry division creates a very strong platform for growing BlackBerry adoption in Germany," said Niels Hencke, Founder and Managing Director of Hencke Systemberatung GmbH. "We look forward to becoming part of the fast growing GPXS family as it extends its global reach with BlackBerry platforms, products, and services."
