CLX Communications AB (publ): Divests its Mobile Payments Business in Australia
Stockholm, Sweden - CLX Communications AB (publ) - (XSTO: CLX) - a leading provider of global cloud-based communication solutions, today announced it has successfully signed an agreement with Oxygen8 Communications Australia Pty Ltd., to sell the Australia and New Zealand Mobile Payments business which was part of the Dialogue acquisition.
"In keeping with our vision to be the world's leading Cloud Communications company, the divestment allows us to focus our resources in realizing that vision," said Johan Hedberg, President and CEO of CLX Communications.
CLX acquired Dialogue with the clear objective of advancing its presence in Asia and bolstering its technical capabilities by leveraging the Sentinel security solution. The Mobile Payments business within Dialogue was always considered to be non-core to the CLX Cloud Communications product set, and as such, CLX will be passing the provision of these services to suitable providers whose expertise include mobile payments.
The CLX Mobile Payments business, which includes highly regulated Premium SMS services, is a healthy business but not part of the core strategy. The transaction is based on a multi-year revenue share agreement and is expected to replace a portion of the approximately SEK 5 million of gross profit generated annually.
