TEOCO Completes TTI Purchase‏

US cost and revenue management vendor TEOCO has announced the completion of its acquisition of TTI Telecom, the Israeli service assurance firm . You can read the TEOCO press release here.

TEOCO made their formal bid for TTI in June. No new information was presented about the deal, implying the final deal was the same as the original offer. ‘Dead Cat’, a regular commentor on talkRA, pointed out the deal valued TTI Telecom at USD 27 million.

The logic behind the deal appears to be two-fold. First, quality of service increasingly underpins the quality of revenues, and this makes TTI a complementary play for TEOCO’s existing offerings. Second, TTI has customers in regions where TEOCO has yet to make a foothold. Cross-selling to TTI customers gives a potential platform for TEOCO to extend its reach outside of the American market.
