OLS Holdings Limited
Purchase of Worldwide Omnis Business
18 October 2016
Dear Omnis Colleagues,
We are delighted to report that today, we have finally completed the acquisition of the worldwide Omnis business from TigerLogic US.
This acquisition has been made by OLS Holdings Limited, a UK corporation owned by Omnis Italia SRL, a group of Italian Omnis developers represented by Andrea Querci, President of Software Products Italia, Sinmo Pty Limited, represented by David Lewis, CEO of The DLA Group in Australia and Gert Stiewi, CEO of the German development company SMS System-Management Stiewi GmbH. Together we form the Board of Directors.
The Headquarters of the company will return from the USA to its ancestral roots and be based in Saxmundham in the United Kingdom. For the time being the company remains under the name "TigerLogic UK", however it is our intention to change the company name back to "OMNIS Software" as soon as possible!
We each have more than 25 years' experience with Omnis, we love Omnis and, with your assistance, we plan to return the Omnis business back to the strong company that our customers demand and our outstanding software deserves.
David has assumed an operational role with the company and, over the next 12 months, he will conduct a comprehensive international review of the Omnis business.
We are delighted to announce that the business of Omnis will continue to be run by the fantastic Omnis staff in the UK, France and Germany. In particular, we would like to acknowledge the dedication over so many years of Bob Whiting and Bob Mitchell in the UK, Alain Teboul in France, and of course the one and only Birgit Jäger in Germany. We are very excited to have the opportunity to work closely with these outstanding colleagues as we rebuild the business. The US Omnis business will continue to be administered from the UK prior to the re-establishment of a US presence in the near future.
Our doors will always be open to our dedicated developers and clients and we very much look forward to meeting with as many of you as possible over the coming months.
We know you all love Omnis and want us to win as we rebuild this proud and modern software company. We know that you will assist us to do so.
To the future – OMNIS rules!
|David P. Lewis
