Now here is something totally fresh. Just few weeks ago, Opera Software Received a new CEO and it looks like he is pushing for something new.
“In our fast-growing industry, mobile advertising represents an interesting long-term revenue opportunity. Every month, nearly 50 million people access the Web using Opera on their mobile phones and together with AdMarvel, we think we can play an important role in the evolution of mobile advertising,” said Lars Boilesen, CEO of Opera Software.
Update: “The agreed acquisition price is approximately USD 8 million in cash. The acquisition structure also envisages up to an additional USD 15 million in cash consideration, paid only if certain aggressive financial targets are met over the next 24 months.”
I am really excited to see the outcome of this acquisition. Do you?
