Pegasystems Completes Acquisition of Collaboration and Co-Browsing Provider Firefly

CAMBRIDGE, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/03/14 -- Pegasystems Inc. (NASDAQ: PEGA), the software company powering the digital enterprise with Better Business Software®, today announced it has completed the acquisition of Profeatable Corporation, the provider of Firefly co-browsing technology, based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Pegasystems will unify Firefly's cloud-based collaboration technology into its Build for Change® platform and customer service and sales applications. This will enable organizations to enhance customer experience and increase employee productivity through collaboration. Firefly will also continue to be offered as a stand-alone solution. Firefly's technology enables users to securely share content by simultaneously browsing web pages. It empowers agents to proactively engage customers when and where they need it most, improving customer satisfaction, and driving adoption of self-service tools to increase revenue. It also increases productivity, enabling employees to more easily collaborate on work, regardless of location.

The acquisition is expected to result in dilution of $0.01 to $0.02 per share in 2014 EPS on a GAAP basis due to acquisition costs, amortization of acquisition related intangibles, and stock-based compensation. However, the acquisition is not expected to impact non-GAAP targets for full year 2014 revenue or EPS.
