– Vercom’s consistent growth is due to the acquisition of new customers and increased sales to existing ones. It is also worth mentioning that the increase in profitability is a result of an improved product mix due to growing interest in CPaaS services and synergies resulting from our previous acquisitions – comments Krzysztof Szyszka, CEO Vercom.
The past quarter was also a period of intensive work related primarily to the acquisition of MailerLite – a global provider of e-mail communication tools for business customers headquartered in the United States for approximately PLN 400 million. This is the largest acquisition of a foreign entity by a Polish Company this year and one of the largest in the technology sector in recent years.
– The acquisition of MailerLite opens up completely new growth opportunities for us. It’s not only a significant milestone in our business, but also a strong entry into a 14x larger market, which will give us the potential for further dynamic organic growth in the coming years. We are consistently implementing a strategy that aims to strengthen our presence on the international market and join the top global players – adds Krzysztof Szyszka.
The acquisition will significantly increase the scale of the Company’s operations in both business and financial terms. Following last year’s acquisitions of FreshMail and PushPushGo, which strengthened Vercom’s leading position on the CEE CPaaS market, the Company’s next ambitious step is to join the top global CPaaS players such as Twilio or Sinch.
– At the same time, the Vercom team will be joined by approximately 100 specialists concentrated in 30 international locations, which will give us the ability to efficiently serve our global customer portfolio in all time zones. We have thus secured a significant potential in the area of revenue synergies – says Tomasz Pakulski, Member of the Vercom. Management Board.
