Deal Details

  • The terms of the deal include cash, stock, and stock earn-out. The purchase consideration remains undisclosed.
  • The majority of VIEVU's employees are based in Seattle and are expected to be integrated into Axon's Seattle office.
  • VIEVU is a public safety camera and cloud-based evidence management system provider to hundreds of law enforcement agencies, including the New York City Police Department, the Miami-Dade Police Department, the Phoenix Police Department, the Oakland Police Department and the Aurora, CO Police Department. Axon will begin servicing those customers immediately.

New Partnership will Give Customers Access to Axon Updated Software Features

Commenting on the acquisition, Sean McCarthy, General Manager of VIEVU, stated that the Company is incredibly proud of the team and technologies it has built at VIEVU.

Sean added that as the Company has been scaling its hardware to meet customer needs, it has realized that many of the software features the customers have been requesting already exist on the Axon's network. He further said that since Axon has made a significant investment in software R&D, this new partnership will give the customers access to these features sooner than it would take for VIEVU to build them.

Integration of VIEVU's Digital Evidence Management Solutions with Axon's Suite of Products will Create Stronger Portfolio of Best-in-Class Products

Warren Kanders, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Safariland, mentioned that the integration of VIEVU's digital evidence management solutions with Axon's suite of products and services will create an even stronger portfolio of best-in-class products to better serve customers and safeguard those who dedicate their lives to protecting others.

Kanders added that Safariland is pleased that Axon shares Safariland's commitment to innovation and to delivering leading products for public safety professionals, and very excited to leverage its expertise in holsters and duty gear into becoming the preferred holster provider for TASER CEWs. This transaction enables Safariland to focus its resources where they will deliver the greatest value to all its stakeholders.
