UK Internet consultancy Xplora has been bought by California based USWeb.
This acquisition follows hot on the heels of the US Internet service provider's purchase of German Net services firm Innomate Online Marketing last month, and is just part of the company?s furious buying spree of over 20 companies in the past two years.
Xplora appealed to USWeb as it "has an excellent collection of Internet talent and a stellar reputation in the UK," said Toby Corey, president of USWeb, who expects the UK company to take full advantage of USWeb?s knowledge and experience.
David Godwin, co-founder and director of new business at Xplora, is positive about the acquisition as he believes the two companies fit perfectly together. There will be no change in Xplora?s business strategy, with the company continuing to concentrate on building business-oriented solutions. "Our focus is as a Microsoft driven developer of Internet solutions," Godwin said.
Commenting on the benefits for its customers, Godwin said: "We are now in a position to move forward as we can benefit from having access to USWeb?s depth of resources."
Xplora?s clients include Abbey Life Assurance, BBC Worldwide and Compaq. All 40 Xplora employees, including the founders and directors, will remain with the company, to be called USWeb Xplora in the UK for an initial period. No financial details of the acquisition have been released.
