The purchase price was $1.0 million of which $250,000 was paid in cash at closing. The balance of $750,000 was paid with the issuance of 617,284 shares of DecisionPoint common stock which was based upon the weighted average closing price of the Company's stock of $1.215 for the 20 trading days prior to July 31, 2012. In addition, the terms of the purchase agreement call for potential additional consideration of up to $500,000, payable 50% in cash and 50% in stock, the amount of which will be determined by the achievement of specific net revenue targets by Illume Mobile through July 31, 2013. Illume Mobile has patent protected domain expertise in developing Enterprise mobile software for Android and Apple (iOS) mobile devices.
The Illume Mobile team led by Mark Jones and Brett Williams will be integrated into the DecisionPoint organization. Mark Jones will serve as DecisionPoint's Vice President, Professional Services reporting to Ralph Hubregsen, DecisionPoint's Chief Operating Officer. Brett Williams, who has been named Vice President, Professional Services Sales, will lead a team of sales and solution engineers and report to John Chis, DecisionPoint's Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing.
"The strategically important acquisition of Illume Mobile solidifies DecisionPoint's development and delivery capabilities in the growing Enterprise iOS and Android mobile software development markets," said Nicholas Toms, CEO of DecisionPoint. "Illume will also fill out our North American geographic service presence in the important growing market of the Southwestern United States. We welcome this talented team to DecisionPoint, and look forward to building significant shareholder value together."
"With the three acquisitions that we have completed over the last 19 months -- CMAC, Apex and Illume -- we have built a strong software and professional services group with capabilities to provide leading edge technology solutions and support for all of our customer installations," continued Mr. Toms. "Revenues from Professional Services and Software, including Illume, are expected to be in excess of 35% of total revenue going forward. This group also generates higher margins than other divisions in the company and most importantly, provides a clear competitive differentiator in the marketplace.
