SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today Cisco (NASDAQ:CSCO) announced the completion of its acquisition of BroadSoft (NASDAQ:BSFT).

More and more businesses expect fully featured calling, meeting, messaging and contact center solutions with the ability to deploy them flexibly - on premises, in the cloud or as hybrid solutions to leverage existing investments. By combining BroadSoft's open interface and standards-based solutions primarily delivered via Service Provider partners, with Cisco's existing portfolio, the combined company will offer best-of-breed solutions for businesses of all sizes which will be delivered through VAR and Service Provider partners. Together, Cisco and BroadSoft will deliver a full suite of rich collaboration experiences to power the future of work.

Under the terms of the agreement, Cisco is paying $55 per share, in cash, in exchange for each share of BroadSoft common stock, for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $1.9 billion net of cash and investment, assuming fully diluted shares including conversion of debt.
