On behalf of the shareholders, the management team, and the ATA employees I would like to thank you and Mark Van Heuvel for the successful international M & A work that resulted in ATA Incorporated, being acquired by Telelogic AB of Sweden. The acquisition enables ATA now to be a member of the world-leading supplier of solutions for real-time software development, configuration management, and requirements management. We firmly believe the acquisition will be extremely beneficial to both parties.
Your assistance throughout the entire M & A process including securing outstanding legal counsel, securing the initial letter of intent, along with spearheading participation in ongoing negotiations was instrumental in making this transaction happen. Your dedicated effort, the attention to detail, ability to work with the various stakeholders throughout the process, and your expert advice was very much appreciated.
In addition, I would like to thank you for opening up the doors for future beneficial relationships with other leading software companies for potential licensing and partnering relationships. We are very confident these relationships will provide further benefits to our company.
I hope to have the opportunity to work with the both of you again. I would be very pleased to be a reference at any point in time.
