Net Insight AB : Net Insight acquires US software company ScheduALL

Stockholm, Sweden

-
Net Insight, the leading provider of live, interactive and on-demand media
transport,
today announces
the acquisition of the US software company VizuAll Inc, trading under the
name of ScheduALL. The acquisition will strengthen Net Insight's market
position in media service and workflow orchestration.

The acquisition of ScheduALL is an important strategic initiative as it allows
Net Insight to offer complete end-to-end orchestration to the market. In
today's fast-paced and schedule driven broadcast world, on-demand and
end-to-end service orchestration is becoming key to deliver efficient and
cost-efficient solutions to TV production broadcasters and their customers.

"This is a perfect match for Net Insight. We are not only executing on our
strategy, we are also taking a giant leap towards our vision of creating a
unified and global media market place for both service providers and media
companies", says Fredrik Tumegård, CEO of Net Insight. "The acquisition also
leads to a stronger customer offering which enables us to take a broader and
more strategic role towards service providers and media companies. We also
want to welcome our new colleagues and we are looking forward to grow
together and create further success."

ScheduALL, founded in 1989, is a provider of ERM (Enterprise Resources
Management) software for media, broadcast and transmission businesses. The
revenues for the financial year 2014, amounted to USD 10.6 m with a net
profit of USD 0,7 m. Approximately 60% of the revenue is recurring. In 2014,
approximately 50% of revenues were derived from North American customers.
ScheduALL has its head office in Hollywood, Florida, US and employs
approximately 75 employees.

The companies have had a strategic partnership for several years. Together
they have implemented an SDN (Software Defined Networking) solution for
service providers allowing them to offer their customers a unique, fully
automated service provisioning over global wide area networks. By this
solution service providers reduce operating cost and media companies gain
from more flexible and efficient workflows. Net Insight can now broaden the
solution with new services and applications.

"We are operating in a fast moving industry. I am convinced that we can create
added value to our customers with our combined expertise in transport and
production workflows", says Ralph Quintero, COO and owner of ScheduALL. "We
will continue to serve our customers and partners and accelerate the
deployment of advanced solutions providing automated, assured orchestration
for on-demand network services."

Net Insight acquires 100% of the shares in ScheduALL, for USD 14 m on a cash
and debt free basis. The acquisition price will be paid in cash at closing
and will be adjusted for the actual level of debt, working capital and cash.
The payment will be funded by using available cash.

Transactional costs of an estimated SEK 5 m will affect Net Insight's third
and fourth quarter results of 2015. The transaction is expected to close on
October 1, from which date ScheduALL will be fully consolidated. The
transaction is expected to have a positive impact on earnings per share from
January 1, 2016.
