PROS Completes Acquisition of Cameleon Software

PROS to De-list Cameleon Shares from NYSE Euronext 

HOUSTON AND PARIS, Oct. 27, 2014 – PROS® (NYSE: PRO), a big data software company, and Cameleon Software SA (Paris: CAM) today announced PROS has successfully completed its acquisition of over 95% of the outstanding shares and voting rights of Cameleon Software SA.

PROS previously announced a second tender offer for Cameleon on September 15, 2014, at a price of €2.20 per share of common stock of Cameleon. 

PROS now controls more than 95% of Cameleon’s outstanding shares and voting rights as a result of 466,790 Cameleon shares tendered during the second tender offer period ended October 22, 2014.

Cameleon shareholders who tendered during the initial tender offer period or its extended offering period ended on January 21, 2014, are entitled to the price complement premium of € 0.15 in cash per share and warrants as a result of PROS controlling more than 95% of Cameleon’s outstanding shares and voting rights before December 31, 2014.

Configure, Price and Quote (CPQ) software streamlines and simplifies the configuration, pricing and quote-generation activities that accompany solutions and negotiated selling. CPQ applications are also deployed to support self-service sales environments, including business-to-consumer (B2C) and business-to-business (B2B). According to Gartner, Inc., price optimization and CPQ are the only two sales effectiveness technologies identified as “transformational” in its report “Hype Cycle for CRM Sales, 2013.” In the same report, both CPQ and price optimization are recognized as being in the early mainstream adoption phase of the market.

PROS plans to request from the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF) the implementation of a mandatory acquisition (squeeze-out) of the remaining shares not held by PROS, and thereafter de-list Cameleon from the NYSE Euronext exchange.

“Today we’ve finalized the acquisition of Cameleon Software, and I’m pleased with the progress we’ve made integrating our organizations and working together as a single team,” said PROS President and CEO Andres Reiner. “The addition of Cameleon CPQ solutions to our portfolio provides customers with the power of a single opportunity-to-revenue platform that enables improved sales performance by leveraging prescriptive guidance, powered by our patented big data science.”
