Calgary’s Wmode pounces on ProvisionX

Briefs | 02/07/2007 5:00 am EST

Wmode, a mobile content managed services provider headquartered in Calgary, announced last week that it had finalized the acquisition of ProvisionX, a unit of mobile content publisher Glu Mobile of San Mateo CA. As its name implies, ProvisionX is in the business of provisioning wireless carriers with mobile games for resale to their customers. The deal means that Wmode now has its mobile content distribution footprint in more than 20 countries, including key markets in Asia, Latin America and Europe, making the company even more attractive to game developers looking to get wide distribution for their product. Post-acquisition, Wmode will also boast more than 40 wireless carrier and media company clients in its network, as well as hundreds of content provider partners.
In a media release, Glu Mobile president and CEO Greg Ballard said of the Canadian firm: "We have been a partner of Wmode for years, and we are confident that their strong operational experience combined with the addition of ProvisionX to their portfolio of services will provide ProvisionX’s current and future customers with innovative services that will enhance their current business."
