Acquisitions

Growth Strategy

Enghouse Interactive is a subsidiary of Enghouse Systems Limited, a Canadian based, publicly traded company (TSX:ENGH).

Acquisitions form a key principle of Enghouse’s overall growth and diversification strategy. Enghouse focuses on acquiring software and services firms with applications solutions and existing customer bases but will consider technology-only acquisitions.

Enghouse seeks companies that develop and sell customer-focused software solutions that are complementary or offer opportunities to enter new vertical markets in fragmented industries.

Importantly, acquired companies become an integral part of the Enghouse family with continued support for acquired products and customers.

Enghouse Acquisitions

Enghouse prefers to assume 100% ownership of the business, although it will consider a majority equity stake. Pure technology plays or start-ups are usually not considered unless they complement an existing business or product line.
