Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

Newbusiness, new ideas!
I reckon that a lot of people are going to be keeping their eyes on this company now that the merger has been confirmed. It'll be interesting to see what kind of things and new products / technologies they are able to come up with. Hopefully they'll be able to utilise the strengths of each company to come up with a truly revolutionarily new idea!

Business expansion
Acquisitions are most often than not tied to business expansions. The aim of the company is to maintain their current consumer pool while being able to extend their portfolio from the newly-bought sector. At the same time, their intention could be to ensure that demand is properly met as part of their efforts as service providers to fulfill increasing demand, else risk being faced with warnings from the relevant boards.
