Ubiquity Completes Acquisition of Monkeybars
IRVINE, Calif., June 26, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ubiquity, Inc. (OTCQB: UBIQ), creators of a new hub for the digital lifestyle, today announced the completion of their acquisition of the assets of Monkeybars Inc., a music platform that combines cloud content storage, sharing applications, and social networking search technology. The acquisition was a common stock transaction valued at $2,250,000.
"Monkeybars created a socially driven, do-it-yourself platform that financially rewards artists and fans alike for doing what they do best distributing and recommending content online," said Monkeybars CEO Robert Hayden. "We're excited to see the expansion of the Monkeybars platform with Ubiquity's deep base of intellectual property and innovative Sprocket user interface. Ubiquity makes access to all content from any device simple and consistent."
Monkeybars' technology is being incorporated into Ubiquity's extensive intellectual property portfolio that allows people, companies and devices to search, find, insert, enhance, create and use all forms of content on any computing device. Ubiquity's Sprocket user interface and operating system works in tandem with Ubiquity's other key IP, including video compression, data analytics and immersive advertising platforms.
"We created Sprocket to provide a customizable user interface that can be tailored to every individual, with the understanding that digital content is being shared more freely and effortlessly across social networks every day," said Chris Carmichael, CEO of Ubiquity. "Content producers are continuously looking to increase social engagement while monetizing their content. Monkeybars' technology creates a direct social channel between music artists and their fans, rewarding these fans for their engagement. The combination of this technology with our existing IP is one that we think can offer an even more compelling value proposition for customers and partners."
