The investment was led by SingTel Innov8, the corporate venture arm of the SingTel Group, Asia’s leading communications group with 368 million[1] mobile customers across Asia and Africa. All existing investors, including Hummer Winblad, Steamboat Ventures and JK&B Capital also participated in the round. Concurrently, Baynote announced that former SAP executive Doug Merritt has been named president and CEO to lead the company through its next phase of investment and growth.

Both announcements come on the heels of 2010 being another record year for Baynote as the company grew year over year revenues by approximately 75 percent. This momentum drove the board’s decision to invest in several functional areas that will allow the company to scale with heightened demand for its adaptive web solutions among digital marketing and e-commerce executives at Global 2000 organizations. The new capital, which brings total funding for Baynote to more than $28 million, will be used primarily to advance the company’s entrance into new high-growth industries, such as telecommunications and financial services, and accelerate product innovation. Funds will also be used to more aggressively expand Baynote’s brand exposure worldwide.

“Through SingTel Innov8’s investment, we hope to tap into the SingTel Group’s expansive markets and capabilities to help take Baynote and our technology for digital and e-commerce professionals to the next level,” said Jack Jia, founder and chairman, Baynote.

“We believe Baynote’s thought leadership around the adaptive web and its disruptive collective intelligence technology for digital marketers and merchandisers will continue to fuel the company’s growth in an area which is becoming more important for enhancing customer experience,” said Yvonne Kwek, CEO of SingTel Innov8. “With Doug’s appointment to CEO and the latest financing, Baynote is now poised for what we expect will be a period of very explosive growth for the company worldwide.”

“Baynote has done an excellent job growing between 70 and 120 percent each year since the company was founded in 2005,” said Doug Merritt, Baynote’s newly appointed president and CEO. “Based on the founding team’s incredible success to date and the increasingly strong reception to our technology among digital marketers, the board and management team expect our growth rate to be multiple times higher by the end of 2012. We’ll use the funding to be more aggressive in product innovation, marketing, and channel development to scale with this exciting opportunity.”
