Augme Technologies, Inc. Message Board

    GMI was most recently led by Seattle tech veteran Michael Brochu

    Making sense yet? Look at the last 3 companies Brochu led and sold. Look at who he sold GMI to. Who would also be a possible buyer of Augt? He sold his last co to Kantar, a unit of advertising giant WPP and they merged it with an online research firm which offers online market data. What does Augt offer...major brands the ability to advertise market and collect invaluable mobile data...the next holy grail for marketers. Brochu didn't join the board to pad his resume. It makes perfect sense.

    Kantar, a unit of advertising giant WPP, has purchased Bellevue-based Global Market Insite for an undisclosed price and merged it with online market research firm Lightspeed Research. Together, the companies said that they will “create one of the world’s largest online panel and sample providers.” As a result of the deal, David Day of Lightspeed Research has been named President and Global CEO of the combined business.

    GMI was most recently led by Seattle tech veteran Michael Brochu who tells The Seattle Times that he plans to transition out of the company as a result of the acquisition. Brochu previously led Loudeye and Primus Knowledge Solutions.

    • Yeah JASON, stop hiding behind the TEXAS mask!!! We can smell a cowboy miles away!!! LOL!!

    • I don't believe the company is going to be sold anytime soon. The IP is not factored into the stock price. That being said why not let me Yahoo case play out. if the IP doesn't work out,you are right back where you started. However, if the IP works out, you could be looking at tremendous shareholder value for everybody involved.. in the meantime, the company is growing and becoming more profitable by the day, and the space is expanding and getting hotter by the month.... no imminent sale whatsoever.. by the way, there are more than a couple of people that think the Yahoo case will work out and put our IP back in play. :)

      • Congratulations to Justin Rose, the 2013 US Open winner. Here's to all of the "physio guys" in camp Rose for keeping him healthy..well done boys.. a true gentleman and a great Champion.. he moved to the United States 10 years ago. This has been a 10 year investment for him... for most of us, this will be a five-year investment and I believe we will have a US Open payoff...

    • texaspate, that is a lot of pumping and excitement for an ordinary BOD you created a new account just to pump this guy? what is your other nic and why now..?

    • Hopefully you are right but the price you mentioned will never pass. Even IB will be way under with that price. Maybe at or near $2

      • Siri, If $2 is the figure, cancel that trip to Florida. I for one has not urged patience and like so many others here have not gone through two years or more of living hell to give this stock away for $2. Where is that intrinsic value that so many on this board have been talking about. IB will come out fine if there is an IPO, but I would hope that there would be some consideration for the long time stockholders in his final analysis of sale price. Maybe that's wishful thinking. Yeah, I guess it is.
