Living-e is merging with Empolis to form Attensity Europe GmbH / Common worldwide presence under the Attensity brand marks final step in integration into Attensity Group

(PresseBox) (Kaiserslautern / Karlsruhe / Palo Alto, ) Following a decision by the Livinge AG general shareholder's meeting regarding a transfer of the remaining minority shareholders' shares in return for a cash compensation, which was taken on February 15, 2010, and entered in the commercial register, Attensity Group now holds 100 percent of shares in Livinge AG. As part of the merger, notarized on April 21, 2010, Livinge AG will be fully integrated with Empolis GmbH. Following a shareholders' decision on April 21, 2010, Empolis GmbH has been renamed Attensity Europe GmbH. Its headquarters are located in Kaiserslautern, Germany.

Livinge AG and Empolis GmbH had merged with Attensity Corp. of Palo Alto (USA) in April of 2009 to form Attensity Group. The group of companies is now completing the last step in its integration with the common worldwide presence under the Attensity brand. Attensity Europe GmbH will nonetheless continue to operate as a legally independent German limited liability company.

"We've cooperated closely in the past few months to implement a successful merger, and we can say with pride that the combined company is stronger today than ever before," said Guido Polko, CEO of Livinge AG and Chief Strategy and Integration Officer of Attensity Group.

In recent months, the software solutions and services of the participating partner companies were integrated as part of the merger. Dr. Stefan Wess, General Manager of Attensity Europe GmbH, explained: "We've already profited greatly from our merger. Our ability to act as a single source offering combined products and technologies from leading specialists in the fields of text analysis, knowledge management, multichannel communications and information management solutions has been very well received by European markets. The signs continue to point to growth." Guido Polko added: "MailMinder, our tried and tested multichannel communication management software, is one of the core products of our portfolio. We will continue to develop it further under the name Attensity Respond."

Ian Bonner, CEO of Attensity Group: "Our presence under a common umbrella brand increases our impact in worldwide markets. We're creating new shareholder value through synergies, complementary technologies and regional market presences around the globe. We offer our customers an integrated portfolio of software applications based on semantic technologies, which they can use to optimize their business processes."
