ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., June 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Yippy, Inc. (OTCQX: YIPI) (www.yippy.com) ("Yippy" or the "Company"), a unified search company known for its search clustering technology and eDiscovery tools, announced today that the Company has agreed to acquire Gigablast, Inc. ("Gigablast") and Web Research Properties, LLC ("WRP") through a letter of intent with binding provisions.
Matt Wells, Gigablast's Chief Executive Officer, commented on the proposed acquisition, saying, "Gigablast and its related properties can provide advanced technologies for consumer, eDiscovery, and enterprise big data customers. Gigabits, a related program, is the first operational enterprise class clustering program which I put into service in 2004. Yippy's Velocity platform was essentially based off of my original work which will allow Yippy to sell behind the firewall installations for all types of search based applications for enterprise and eDiscovery customers."
"This is the most important acquisition of technologies for our young company," stated Rich Granville, Yippy's Chief Executive Officer. He continued, "Yippy will be a significant presence in the business of search based applications with the combination of Velocity and Gigabits. One can possibly understand the potential for this proposed merger by conducting a consumer search on demo.yippy.com to find that Yippy and Gigablast have already begun to combine indexes which consist of billions of pages of data. Once we fully integrate the technology assets of Gigablast, WRP and MuseGlobal with Yippy, our sales processes can commence and we will be able to under-price the competition by what we believe to be significant margins."
