A Letter From Mike On Apax Partner's Realignment of Macola

I’ve received more than one call or email from customers asking my take on the recent news that Exact has sold Macola and two other companies.  So here it is from my perspective;

In April of 2015, venture firm APAX Partners acquired Exact Software and with it, the Macola assets.  There was hope this move and their money would reinvigorate Macola.  That may be taking shape now. 

Recently APAX also acquired U.S.-based ECi Software Solutions based out of Fort Worth Texas, a company in the small and midsized ERP space, the same space Macola operates in.  Concurrent with that acquisition, APAX opted to combine Macola and other Exact assets in the U.S. with ECi and remove them from the Exact Software oversight.
