Web 2.0 Expo New York

written by admin No Comments posted in News

This year, Web 2.0 Expo New York focuses on Platforms for Growth, diving into the platform opportunities for the whole web ecosystem, particularly mobile, real-time, and the social web.

We’ll be talking about real-time data and the content being generated, how that data is consumed, and the platforms and applications enabling various services. We’ll also be concentrating on the players that have spawned their own ecosystems, creating huge opportunities for partners, vendors and competitors.

Ten years ago, companies like AOL, Yahoo, Google, Amazon, Earthlink, and eBay battled to define the ways we would use the Web. The winners drew millions of customers, but more important, they spawned ecosystems that created huge opportunities for partners, vendors, and competitors.

Today, new wars with new players like Facebook, Twitter, Bing, and Bit.ly are emerging on the Web wars that create hard questions for businesses that must decide their own roles in our increasingly mobile, social, and real-time world.

We believe this is a winning combination for both Adobe and Day customers.”

Transaction Details
As part of the expected integration of the two companies, Day will operate as a product line within Adobe’s Digital Enterprise Solutions Business Unit. Day CEO Erik Hansen will join Adobe reporting directly to Rob Tarkoff.

The proposed offer represents a premium of 59 percent over Day’s volume-weighted average share price for the last 60 trading days. The Board of Directors of Day unanimously recommends the offer to Day shareholders. The Chairman and the CEO of Day and other Board members have entered into undertakings to tender their shares.

The completion of the transaction, which is subject to customary government approvals and the satisfaction of other customary conditions, including a minimum acceptance threshold with respect to the tender offer, is expected to close in the fourth quarter of Adobe’s 2010 fiscal year.
