GuestLogix, Inc., a leading global provider of ancillary-focused merchandising, payment and business intelligence technology to airlines and the passenger travel industry, today announced it has completed its acquisition of OpenJaw Technologies Limited, which is now a unique division of GuestLogix. The two entities entered a definitive agreement on December 2, 2014, under which the Company would acquire OpenJaw for a combination of cash and shares issued to the vendors for a total transaction value of US$41.2 million, plus performance considerations and adjustments for OpenJaw’s cash balance. The completion of the acquisition successfully broadens GuestLogix’ capabilities, as well as provides immediate expansion into new travel verticals.

“It is with great enthusiasm that we welcome OpenJaw into the GuestLogix family and extend our global presence with offices in Dublin, Galway, Madrid and Krakow,” said Brett Proud, President & CEO, GuestLogix. “This highly strategic acquisition strengthens both GuestLogix and OpenJaw’s competitiveness and ability to serve the passenger travel industry across all verticals and touchpoints, via a central technology provider. The introduction of a comprehensive retailing solution will be of great value to our current and prospective customers who are looking to simplify processes and view retail performance metrics across their entire operation, while augmenting their overall ancillary revenue success.”

With this announcement, GuestLogix gains OpenJaw’s 30+ international travel brands as customers from hotels to loyalty programs to car rental companies and to airlines enhancing the Company’s profile and reach. GuestLogix’ portfolio of retailing solutions, which are predominantly used onboard travel operators, are now expanded to include OpenJaw’s web-based merchandising solutions that improve travel companies’ online retailing capabilities through booking engines and other travel-related channels. By fusing the two brands’ award-winning platforms, the travel industry now has its first pure-play, end-to-end ancillary revenue and retailing platform that can be leveraged from the first point of interaction with a traveler and throughout the entire customer travel lifecycle.

“It is official OpenJaw and GuestLogix are now united,” said Kieron Branagan, CEO of OpenJaw Technologies. “This agreement represents two technology leaders coming together to broaden their focus and completely revolutionize the way that travel operators and brands interact with travelers throughout each stage of the travel journey. As we embark on this next chapter as part of a like-minded, innovative organization, we are confident that our combined efforts and technologies will elevate our customers’ retailing success to new heights.”
