Claudia Imhoff

Welcome to my blog.

This is another means for me to communicate, educate and participate within the Business Intelligence industry. It is a perfect forum for airing opinions, thoughts, vendor and client updates, problems and questions. To maximize the blog's value, it must be a participative venue. This means I will look forward to hearing from you often, since your input is vital to the blog's success. All I ask is that you treat me, the blog, and everyone who uses it with respect.

So...check it out every week to see what is new and exciting in our ever changing BI world.

Last September 1, Pitney Bowes announced that it would acquire the remaining 95% of FirstLogic for $50 million. If you recall, I wrote in my blog that I thought it was not a particularly good deal for FirstLogic. Perhaps they agreed since the acquisition is now officially called off.

Here's the exclusive news...

A press release from Scott Humphrey will be aired today stating that FirstLogic and Pitney Bowes have verbally agreed NOT to extend their merger agreement when it expires November 15.

Eric Lieberman, the President of FirstLogic says, "After reviewing the second request for information issued by the Federal Trade Commission, we mutually decided that it was in the best interest of all involved not to proceed further with the acquisition."

I am sure that there is disappointment on both sides of the deal but I also think that FirstLogic is better off either on its own or looking for a better deal with another company. Good luck to FirstLogic with its new legs!

Yours in BI success,
