Mavenir acquires Aquto for mobile sponsored-data platform

Mavenir has acquired Aquto, a start-up based in Boston that offers a cloud-based sponsored data platform that helps mobile operators to increase marketing and advertising revenue. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Sponsored data enables users to gain cellular data connectivity through 3rd party sponsorships. Aquto said operators can use data sponsorships as a form of currency to improve mobile engagement across any type of mobile campaign (app downloads, in-app engagement, media, etc.).

Aquto's SaaS Platform Distribution is available either as a white-label Sponsored Data platform to enable single MNO or group of MNOs or as Global Sponsored Data Platform connected to all MNOs.

“What’s critical to the subscriber is mobile data connectivity and what’s important to carriers is monetization and loyalty,” said Pardeep Kohli. “In this marketplace, operators can monetize sponsors through the value exchange model - where mobile data is the primary currency. Enterprises can attach data rewards to a specific call to action (CTA). Users/consumers, when provided with sponsored data services, engage more with the operator and ultimately buy more data from the operator (i.e. reduced churn by 5% and increased ARPU by 15% for prepaid subscribers).”

Aquto was co-founded and led by Susie Kim Riley. Investors in Aquto included Matrix Partners, North Bridge Venture Partners, Iris Capital, and STC Ventures.

Mavenir to Miss Expectations, Citing VoLTE Delays

Citing delayed VoLTE projects, Mavenir Systems said it now expects first quarter revenues to be in the range of $27.0 million to $28.5 million, below previously announced guidance range of $39.0 million to $41.0 million. Non-GAAP EPS is expected to be in the range of $(0.47) to $(0.41). Non-GAAP operating loss is expected to be between ($12.5) million and ($10.5) million, also below the previously announced guidance of a non-GAAP loss in the range of $(4.0) million to $(2.3) million.The shortfall in revenue results in non-GAAP gross profit margin percentages in the range of 50% to 53% which is also below the guidance range of 60% to 62%.

Mavenir said the revenue shortfall is primarily the result of shifts in projects with existing purchase orders, specifically:

  • Projects where acceptances were delayed as customers moved their VoLTE network launch timelines
  • Projects where acceptance was delayed due to the announcement of the pending acquisition of Mavenir by Mitel Networks Corporation
  • Additionally, impact from foreign exchange rates was a negative factor.

“While disappointing, our performance in the first quarter was largely impacted by a shift in the timing of operator launches in Europe and timing issues associated with the pending acquisition of Mavenir,” said Pardeep Kohli, Mavenir President and Chief Executive Officer. “The delayed projects are primarily with customers where Mavenir has established customer purchase orders. We remain encouraged by ongoing and strong customer roll-outs, including the recent launches by Vodafone Germany of Europe’s first VoLTE and EE (Everything Everywhere) of Wi-Fi Calling.”
