James Pycock, Business Development Director of Fun Text, dropped me a note today to let me know that they’ve been acquired!
The buyer, mobile messaging company, Mobispine, has just completed the deal. Super news for James and the Fun Text team. And super news for the chaps at Mobispine — this is their fourth acquisition in about a year.
If you need a reminder on Fun Text, they deploy mobile messaging facilities for consumers, enabling them to send and share ‘professionally created multimedia’ on mobile. Birthday messages, jokes, that sort of stuff — it’s the kind of services that the MMS manager at a mobile operator loves — in many cases, Fun Text has delivered triple-digit MMS ARPU for their clients.
Mobispine is growing into a bit of a behemoth — working with over 30 mobile operators around the planet. Good news all round. Congratulations everyone!
