The addition of a forward thinking specialist in the conferencing and meeting space will bolster LoopUp’s existing proposition, providing additional offerings in the video communication and collaboration space.
CEO of LoopUp Steve Flavell appreciates the opportunity to enhance their portfolio.
“The acquisition of MeetingZone will help us to enhance our already strong competitive position, add significant scale to our business and amplify the network effect of our offering. It will also provide us with an opportunity to reinvest further in our business, in particular our people, product and our ‘Pods’. We thank all of the existing and new shareholders who have supported this proposed acquisition and who, like us, see it as an exciting opportunity to expand LoopUp’s position and drive long-term growth.”
