Cabcharge enters agreement to acquire Mobile Technologies International Pty Ltd

As stated in Listcorp, Cabcharge Australia Limited (Cabcharge, ASX:CAB) has entered into an agreement to acquire all of the issued shares in Mobile Technologies International Pty Ltd (MTI) for a purchase price of A$6.6 million.

MTI, formerly known as MTData, is a leading global provider of innovative Software as a Service (SaaS) automotive dispatch and booking technology to the Taxi industry. MTI has an established presence in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand, and is also the owner and operator of Mantax Taxis, the largest network of black cabs in Manchester, England.

The acquisition will fast track the creation of innovative dispatch and payment tools to deliver seamless outcomes for the personal transport industry. The acquisition provides an opportunity to expand Cabcharge’s customer reach and increases Cabcharge’s ability to compete with other fully integrated personal transport companies.

Cabcharge CEO Andrew Skelton said: “This collaboration of technology and experience will be a win for Cabcharge’s customers and a win for MTI’s Taxi industry customers. Working directly with our core dispatch and bookings technology enablesus to improve the service experience for a number of key stakeholders. The transaction signals growing confidence in our ability to build and integrate technology and MTI provides an opportunity to be active and competitive on a global scale.”

MTI Chairman and co-founder Matthew Bellizia added: “I believe this is one of the most exciting developments globally in terms of having Taxi companies compete against the global ride share companies. The shared passion of MTI and Cabcharge and our strong track records are testament to this vision. Our global customer base will get an accelerated set of tools to help them compete in their market places.”

MTI will continue with its existing management structure and operate as a subsidiary of Cabcharge to allow it to provide systems and service to all customers equally and fairly, but with the added support of more people power and R&D funding.

Matthew Bellizia will remain as Chairman of MTI: “Cabcharge’s commitment to improving technology makes it the perfect home for MTI to accelerate its next generation products which are designed to support established Taxi industry participants to compete against new global players.”

“MTI management and staff are excited by the acquisition. Combining our resources will provide our customers with a new level of tools and innovation and strengthenMTI’s capacity to grow the business globally.”

“Together MTI and Cabcharge will invest over $10 million developing technologies to create advanced Taxi dispatch and payment services, which in turn will strengthen operations for our Taxi industry customers across the world.”
