Vignette will acquire 100 percent of the outstanding stock and assume all stock options of DataSage in exchange for approximately 3.16 million shares of Vignette common stock. Vignette expects the acquisition to close the acquisition by March 31.
DataSage offers applications designed for online retailers to personalize their sites and market to the appropriate targets. Its applications include providing firms with e-mail, site personalization, direct mail and other promotional activities. Vignette said it will integrate DataSage into its services to deliver a suite of e-business applications, analysis and marketing services.
"With this acquisition, we take a major leap forward in empowering online businesses to personalize each and every customer interaction and measure and manage the success of their e-marketing efforts," said Greg Peters, Vignette's president and chief executive officer.
The purchase is one of many buyouts happening Monday. On the broadband front, NEXTLINK Communications Inc. (NXLK) and Concentric Network Corp. (CNCX) Monday merged in a $2.9 billion deal to create a single high-speed communications company and topping the news, America Online Inc. (AOL) and Time Warner Inc.
