Technological Convergence In the Digital Marketplace provides windows of opportunity. The socialization of data with sufficient bandwidth for the mobile handheld devices enables video to enhance the users experience to a personal level like never before. Constantly fueling an expanding, user base with disruptive technologies and solutions right to the local environments, while monetizing that traffic flow, is the goal.
Mr. Harris added, "As the market enters a new era that will be driven by audience connections with each other and with brands, we will be focused on personal technology and personal media. To that end, we have also entered into negotiations to strengthen our global capabilities in social media, video and global e-commerce." VGTel anticipates that the deals under discussion will be closed before the end of the second quarter.
In addition to purchasing MeCoupons, VGTel is continuing to look for opportunities to strengthen its mobile and social capabilities. The power of mobile to actively engage consumers via data, voice and sound is driving innovation industry-wide and creating opportunities for companies like VGTel to develop new and compelling offers that enhance connections between consumers, content and brands.
Mr. Harris added, “Mobile, along with social, video and commerce will continue to be key areas of focus as we move forward. We will look to build, buy or grow these capabilities rapidly.” VGTel noted that the deal should be completed before the end of the second quarter.
